Bigotry of Pat Buchanan

Filed under: Uncategorized — trp2011 @ 7:38 PM

A major Republican leader is Pat Buchanan who chimed in with the conservative press about Andres Behring Breivik, the man who killed at least 76 people, in a bomb in Oslo before he later killed young people at an annual labor party. Breivek was a self-declared Christian.

“As for a climactic conflict between a once-Christian West and an Islamic world that is growing in numbers and advancing inexorably into Europe for the third time in 14 centuries, on this one, Breivik may be right.—Pat Buchanan, failed presidential candidate and conservative pundit who joined the Wall Street Journal and the Jerusalem Post in arguing that the far-right extremist perpetrator Anders Breivik may have had a valid point.

Buchanan also talked about President Obama in an interview with Al Sharpton: “And let me tell you, your boy, Barack Obama, caved in on it in 2010 and he’ll cave in on it again,” he said.

“My what? My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?” Sharpton asked.

“He’s your boy in the ring, he’s your fighter,” Buchanan responded.

“He’s nobody’s boy,” Sharpton responded. “He’s your president and he’s our president. And that’s what y’all have got to get through your head.”

And this is how many conservatives think about Christianity, Muslims, and our country’s elected president.

  1. His attitude is beyond racist. Don’t know how he can live with his nasty “Christian” self.
