Pat Buchanan on America

Filed under: Uncategorized — trp2011 @ 8:11 PM

Conservatives complain about the cable station MSNBC being so liberal, but if that is true, why does the station continue to employ Pat Buchanan? This is the man who claims that Hitler never wanted war with Poland and instead wanted to end the war in 1940, almost two years before the trains began to roll to the camps. According to Buchanan, Hitler isn’t just a man of peace, but “an individual of great courage.” The Holocaust was actually Churchill’s fault. Regarding the Latinos, he said, “We’re going to have 135 million Hispanics in the United States by 2050, heavily concentrated in the southwest. The question is whether we’re going to survive as a country.”

Following is a quotation from his new book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2015?” It’s my guess that with conservative leaders like Buchanan, it may not.

“In the first five years of the Iraq war, Asian-Americans were 1 percent of our fallen heroes, Latinos 11 percent, African-Americans 10 percent. White Americans were 75 percent of the dead, and from photos of the fallen in newspapers since, the ratios appear to hold. Does this overrepresentation of white men in the body bags and caskets coming home bother our commander in chief, who wants fewer white men at the top level of his executive branch?”

Jillian Rayfield, another MSNBC contributor, has provided more quotations from Buchanan’s book.

From the chapter, “The Death Of Christian America”: “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”: “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: “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”: “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?”: “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”: “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 thatAmerica’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: “If [conservative political commentator Heather] MacDonald’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’”: “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”: “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.”

On the segregation era: “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.”

In addition to listening non-stop to the lies on Faux News, conservatives will read this book. It’s frightening.

  1. Buchanan seems confused. The majority of Latinos no matter what country they come from are Christian. Unless Buchanan reviles Catholics too, in which case his view of who’s the right kind of American is even narrower, and would prevent a Kennedy from being elected. And just how exactly is he going to put the American white Protestant man back in control and from the sounds of it, resegregate, how exactly does he propose to get rid of the excess brown skins.

    A man who admires Hitler might find his path to cleansing a fine idea. Just the America I (white, protestant) I want to live in.
