My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.

After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.



The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?"

A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it "exists to strengthen Black America's political voice," claimed that my book espouses a "white supremacist ideology." Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, "The End of White America."



Media Matters parroted the party line: He has blasphemed!



A Human Rights Campaign that bills itself as America's leading voice for lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgendered people said that Buchanan's "extremist ideas are incredibly harmful to millions of LBGT people around the world."



Their rage was triggered by a remark to NPR's Diane Rehm — that I believe homosexual acts to be "unnatural and immoral."

On Nov. 2, Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who has sought to have me censored for 22 years, piled on.

"Buchanan has shown himself, time and again, to be a racist and an anti-Semite," said Foxman. Buchanan "bemoans the destruction of white Christian America" and says America's shrinking Jewish population is due to the "collective decision of Jews themselves."

Well, yes, I do bemoan what Newsweek's 2009 cover called "The Decline and Fall of Christian America" and editor Jon Meacham described as "The End of Christian America." After all, I am a Christian.

And what else explains the shrinkage of the U.S. Jewish population by 6 percent in the 1990s and its projected decline by another 50 percent by 2050, if not the "collective decision of Jews themselves"?

Let error be tolerated, said Thomas Jefferson, "so long as reason is left free to combat it." What Foxman and ADL are about in demanding that my voice be silenced is, in the Jeffersonian sense, intrinsically un-American.

Consider what it is these people are saying.



They are saying that a respected publisher, St. Martin's, colluded with me to produce a racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic book, and CNN, Fox News, C-SPAN, Fox Business News and the 150 radio shows on which I appeared failed to detect its evil and helped to promote a moral atrocity.



If my book is racist and anti-Semitic, how did Sean Hannity, Erin Burnett, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs and Ralph Nader miss that? How did Charles Payne, African-American host on Fox radio, who has interviewed me three times, fail to detect its racism?



How did Michael Medved miss its anti-Semitism?

Look what he said here ... terrible.....

Pat Buchanan: I am more of a traditionalist conservative than I am a libertarian but I share with Ron Paul the view that America has become an over-extended empire.
http://buchanan.org/...st-century-4985



Buchanan agrees with Paul on foreign policy?? It's pretty safe to say he's anti-Semitic, a homophobe, and a bigot. *sarcasm*



I don't agree with Buchanan on every issue, just on some issues, like the meaning of Liberty, and how our government's foreign policy is an enemy of Liberty, while it doesn't increase security. It reduces security by fighting wars half-assedly and for years and years. Anyone who doesn't see that our foreign policy breeds radicals simply has decided not to see this.



War is war. War is hell. War is a nation's last recourse. If it comes to war, then by God fight it to win. Commit sufficient troops to establish nationwide order. That's the minimum.



We've had 18+ years of war not meeting the minimum standard. Buchanan understands this, as does Paul, Kucinich, and a handful of others. We've left behind a divided Iraq whose citizens' daily lives are worse off than pre-invasion, not to mention the civilian deaths.



We're leaving behind Afghanistan that in the best case scenario will be governed by thugs we prop up and finance. That's the best case. The worst case is an Afghanistan with a shattered economy wholly dependent on the opium trade, high unemployment, tribalism, and another generation of terrorists.



"No one has deputized America to play Wyatt Earp to the world." -- Buchanan



Well, maybe someone has.

An "outrageous" quote by Buchanan from the ADL's website:



“They charge us with anti-Semitism…The truth is, those hurling these charges harbor a 'passionate attachment' to a nation not our own, that causes [Americans] to subordinate the interests of their own country and to act on an assumption that, somehow, what's good for Israel is good for America.” More.



Buchanan has a lot of enemies. Collectively, the are The Establishment.

I'm sure Fox will hire a racist, xenophobe and homophobe. Buchanan hits on all three cylinders.

Pundit and MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan’s new book, “Suicide Of A Superpower,” is a veritable treasure trove of eye-popping assertions about the decline of America at the hand of increased diversity and multiculturalism.



TPM went through and picked out some highlights, so that you really really don’t have to.



From the Preface:

Quote:
When the faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, the people die. That is the progression. And as the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate. The last decade provided corroborating if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian summer of our civilization.




From the chapter, “The Death Of Christian America”:

Quote:
Obama’s White House thus enlisted in the long and successful campaign to expel Christianity from the public square, diminish its presence in our public life, and reduce its role to that of just another religion.




From the chapter, “The End Of White America”:

Quote:
The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear. Hispanics already comprise 42 percent of New Mexico’s population, 37 percent of California’s, 38 percent of Texas’s, and over half the population of Arizona under the age of twenty. ……. Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically, and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being overturned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution—to “insure domestic tranquility” and “make us a more perfect union”? Or has our passivity in the face of this invasion imperiled our union?




On the group UNITY: Journalists of Color, Inc. pushing for more diversity in journalism:

Quote:
Half a century after Martin Luther King envisioned a day when his children would be judged ‘not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character,’ journalists of color are demanding the hiring and promotion of journalists based on the color of their skin. Jim Crow is back. Only the color of the beneficiaries and the color of the victims have been reversed.




Also from the chapter, “The End Of White America”:

Quote:
Those who believe the rise to power of an Obama rainbow coalition of peoples of color means the whites who helped to engineer it will steer it are deluding themselves. The whites may discover what it is like to ride in the back of the bus.




From the chapter, “Equality or Freedom?”:

Quote:
Not until the 1960s did courts begin to use the Fourteenth Amendment to impose a concept of equality that the authors of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, The Federalist Papers, and the Gettysburg Address never believed in. Before the 1960s, equality meant every citizen enjoyed the same constitutional rights and the equal protection of existing laws. Nothing in the Constitution or federal law mandated social, racial, or gender equality.




From the chapter “The Diversity Cult”:

Quote:
Americans who seek stricter immigration control have been charged with many social sins: racism, xenophobia, nativism. Yet none has sought to expel any fellow American based on color or creed. We have only sought to preserve the country we grew up in. Do not people everywhere do that, without being reviled? What motivates people who insist that America’s doors be held open wide until the European majority has disappeared?



What is their grudge against the old America that eats at their heart?




On crime:

Quote:
If (conservative political commentator Heather) Mac Donald’s statistics are accurate, 49 of every 50 muggings and murders in New York are the work of minorities. That might explain why black folks have trouble getting a cab. Every New York cabby must know the odds, should he pick up a man of color at night.




From the chapter “‘The White Party’”:

Quote:
What the above points to is a strategy from which Republicans will recoil, a strategy to increase the GOP share of the white Christian vote and increase the turnout of that vote by specific appeals to social, cultural, and moral issues, and for equal justice for the emerging white minority. If the GOP is not the party of New Haven firefighter Frank Ricci and Cambridge cop James Crowley, it has no future. And although Howard Dean disparages the Republicans as the “white party,” why should Republicans be ashamed to represent the progeny of the men who founded, built, and defended America since her birth as a nation?

From the chapter “The Last Chance”:

Quote:
Our intellectual, cultural, and political elites are today engaged in one of the most audacious and ambitious experiments in history. They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth. They have dethroned our God, purged our cradle faith from public life, and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live.




From the same chapter:

Quote:
For the Left to concede that white anger is a legitimate response to racial injustices done to white people would be to concede that the Left is guilty of the very sin of which it accuses the right.




On the segregation era:

Quote:
Perhaps some of us misremember the past. But the racial, religious, cultural, social, political, and economic divides today seem greater than they seemed even in the segregation cities some of us grew up in.



Back then, black and white lived apart, went to different schools and churches, played on different playgrounds, and went to different restaurants, bars, theaters, and soda fountains. But we shared a country and a culture. We were one nation. We were Americans.


The blacks living in Buchanan's ideal America of the 1950s knew that they were 2nd-class citizens, and that we weren't really one nation. I suspect that had Buchanan grown up black he'd have a very different view of the world today, and wouldn't be making statements that so clearly reveal his straight white Christian male privilege.

What about MediaMatters? What is you opinion of their "journalism"?

Oh yes. Being a straight white Christian male is such an evil thing. I don't know how we progressed so far with so many straight white Christian males through the history of this nation.

Certainly more Americans would have been better off throughout our history if those straight white Christian males weren't threatened by other people having the same rights as themselves.

You, Gary & Buchanan are cases in point of people who seem threatened by other people having the same rights as you.
