‘In The Heat Of The Night Star’ Goes Full Archie Bunker, calls Candace Owen ‘an obedient N**igger’
Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens has had an awesome week: First, she thoroughly destroyed Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) at a House Judiciary Committee Hearing on Hate Crimes; now – Geoffrey Thorne, an actor who is only known for his long-running role as Sgt. Wilson Sweet on the classic TV show In the Heat of the Night, tweeted perhaps the most despicable thing I’ve read all year at Owens, in response to her announcing an upcoming episode of her show with PragerU.
Owens said that she would be joined by a fellow black conservative and Turning Point USA contributor Rob Smith, to discuss what it is like being both gay and conservative. (Rob Smith is a fellow Turning Point USA contributor who is conservative, black, and gay.)
Without question, it is more difficult today to come out as a conservative than it is to come out as gay. Conservatives today are treated with the same social stigma as gays were in the 80’s, Sunday on the #CandaceOwensShow, @robsmithonline and I discuss!!
This was apparently too much for Geoffrey Thorne, the washed up former star of “In The Heat of The Night.” He tweeted out a despicable ad hominen, basically proving Candace’s point that blacks are living on the Hollywood / Democrat plantation and are brainwashed:
they will never accept you. they will never think off you as anything but an obedient nigger. you will never be one of them. they see you as a trained animal that does the right tricks. one can only pray you never realize because, if you do, what’s left of your soul will crack.

Candace Owens responded:
Just curious as to what Twitter’s policy is for hate speech and more importantly — blue check mark verification. Anybody know?
Rob Smith jumped in and spoke to Breitbart News, responding to Thorne, and explained why it seems black conservatives are oftentimes subjected to this type of hateful rhetoric, and what it means for other black conservatives observing this behavior, who do not yet feel comfortable expressing their views publicly.
“I think liberals of all colors have been conditioned to police the thoughts of black conservatives and use dehumanizing language towards us by the same phony leaders who sell them nothing but victimhood and fear to line their own pockets,” said Smith to Breitbart News.
“Every time someone ‘in the closet’ about their political views sees a black conservative smeared like that, they retreat further in, and the cycle continues to perpetuate the lie that all black people think monolithically.”
I’d never even heard of Thorne until this morning, just as I’d never heard of actor Jussie Smollett until he carried out his hoax. Thorne is known for playing Sgt. Wilson Sweet on the television series “In the Heat of the Night.”
Thorne’s use of the n-word in his tweet I guess does not run afoul of Twitter’s guidelines. But then again, he’s a screaming, idiot, so he gets a pass.
I’m so sick of these racist idiots, honestly. I’d rather watch Carol Burnett
