Thomas Sowell: ‘Race Riots if Obama Loses’
This clip comes from an interview last month on KABC radio in Los Angeles with talk show host Larry Elder. I wanted to post it when I heard it live, but haven’t been able to find it online until now.
Thomas Sowell is a very distinguished voice on the right, and I would say with good reason. However, since Obama’s election four years ago, it appears Dr. Sowell has been afflicted with Obama Derangement Syndrome himself. Consider this 2010 article where he asks if “the US is on a slippery slope to tyranny,” (and actually makes a comparison between President Obama and Hitler), or when he appeared on Rush Limbaugh’s show in 2009 and said Obama’s speech to kids in school - one of the more idiotic faux right wing outrages of 2009 - reminded him of the Hitler Youth.
There are more examples of Sowell’s footsie game with wingnuttery here.
And now he advances one of the more insidious racist memes about blacks rioting if Obama loses.
Welcome to Wingnutistan, Dr. Sowell.
