Sowell compared Obama to Hitler, Mao, other dictators, and Jim Jones

Summary: Thomas Sowell’s syndicated column compared Sen. Barack Obama to Bolshevik revolutionaries, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Jim Jones, and “[o]ther despotic regimes in China, Cuba, and Iran,” all leaders who Sowell claimed resemble Obama in that they rose to power on a message of “change” or due to “inspiring rhetoric and a confident style” more than “specifics.” Sowell also falsely claimed that Obama “was against a law forbidding physicians to kill a baby that was born alive despite an attempt to abort it.”
