Thomas Sowell is supposedly one of the rights' leading intellectuals, having attended Harvard, Columbia and U. of Chicago and then taught at Cornell, Rutgers, Amherst, Brandeis and UCLA. Well, so is George Will.
But Sowell makes George Will look like Barney Frank. Sowell's Christmas column in Town Hall is titled On Christmas: Liberals are by no means Liberal. (Link is to Town Hall so click at your own risk.) So, Tom why aren't Liberals liberal?
The annual outbursts of intolerance toward any display of traditional Christmas scenes, or even daring to call a Christmas tree by its name, show that today's liberals are by no means liberal. Behind the mist of their lofty words, the totalitarian mindset shows through.(h/t Tom Hilton at No More Mister Nice Blog.)
Yes. The War on Christmas proves that we are really fascists.
As for the President:
If someone wrote a novel about a man who was raised from childhood to resent the successful and despise the basic values of America -- and who then went on to become President of the United States -- that novel would be considered too unbelievable, even for a work of fiction. Yet that is what has happened in real life.OK, let's sum up:
. . .
After watching a documentary about the tragic story of Jonestown, I was struck by the utterly unthinking way that so many people put themselves completely at the mercy of a glib and warped man, who led them to degradation and destruction. And I could not help thinking of the parallel with the way we put a glib and warped man in the White House.
Liberals are fascists because they object to any display of xmas scenes (news to me, Tom)So there you have it. Thomas Sowell settles down beside the fire on December 24, enveloped in the warmth of the Holiday (oops) Christmas season, and writes one of the most vile columns I've ever seen.
President Obama "despises" the basic American values and is a "glib and warped man."
People who voted for President Obama are just like the followers of Jim Jones.
Joy to the World back at ya, Tom
