In Defense of Pat Buchanan and the First Amendment

There is a cancer sucking the life out of America and, although we all know what it is, we on the right allow it to continue to grow.  Andrew Breitbart recently referred to it as an “impossible standard” and “Saul Alinsky bull***t.”  He isn’t far off in either case.

Patrick J. Buchanan has been a patriot and a servant to this nation for decades, serving under Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan.  He was an original host of CNN’s acclaimed show Crossfire, is the co-founder of The American Conservative, and has published in countless journals and publications.  Buchanan has written ten books, six of which are New York Times bestsellers.  He ran for president three times and proved to be a viable candidate each time.

Pat has been an MSNBC contributor since 2002 and has never changed his views or stance on anything; never was there a problem until now.  Since the publication of Buchanan’s last book Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?, there have been countless calls from the left to silence Buchanan by removing him from his spot at MSNBC, and, as of Thursday afternoon, the Anti-Deformation League and other groups like Media Matters accomplished just that.  You want to know why they silenced Pat Buchanan?  Because they are afraid he is right.  Liberal groups seek to end the argument by silencing their opposition.  The left branded him a racist and forced him into silence; the left succeeded in silencing a man who has correctly foretold all of America’s woes.

The progressive website has posted an article detailing the reasons that they believe Pat Buchanan was fired.  They list ten of Pat Buchanan’s “most outrageous statements.”  The funny thing about them is that, although they are uncomfortable, they are true.

The first statement discusses closing the borders to avoid the collapse of white America; the second examines minority test scores.  The left asserts that Buchanan is a racist for the view that white people in America will become a minority by 2050 if the U.S. does not close its borders.  They then go on to state that Buchanan is a racist for recognizing the lower test scores of minority children.  If you examine the test scores, minorities due tend to score lower.  Why is making that observation racist?  The rest of the list is distortions of the truth and misquotes that allow ThinkProgress to further tarnish the name of an American patriot.

America is shifting to a nation of censorship and political correctness; the first amendment is becoming irrelevant.  This is not the end, but the beginning.  Popular talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger made a remark about her disapproval of homosexuals and was promptly attacked by the homosexual community, who eventually started a website that lead to Dr. Laura ending her show.  These people love the Constitution and all the rights provided to them, so long as the document only extends freedom to them.

Liberals have learned that the best way to win the debate is to silence the opposition.  In the coming months, we will see many others come under assault.  The latest target is conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart, whose recent accusations include being a bigot, homophobe and racist.  The left will go after Breitbart and try to silence him as well, but it will ultimately fail because Breitbart works for himself.

Pat Buchanan will never be silenced totally because he is a fighter.  We need more people like him.  It is in his honor that I write this peace and encourage everyone to fight the the left in America.  We, for the time being, have the right to speak our minds and we must exercise it, as it might one day be gone.

Pat Buchanan summed it up best in his column this week. He said, “I know these blacklisters. They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.”

    Funny you should bring up Hitler, since Buchanan’s all but a Holocaust denier.

    The man dog-whistles his way through life – as conservative Charles Krauthammer said about Buchanan, “There’s no doubt he makes subliminal appeals to prejudice.”

    You even brought up one of them yourself. “If we do not get control of our borders, by 2050 Americans of European descent will be a minority in the nation their ancestors created and built.”

    Now, let’s break that one down. He made a statement that is actually statistical nonsense. So what did he mean by it? Well, he obviously thinks it’s a bad thing. And why is that? Because white people are… better?

    You tell me what he meant by it. Because we both know he wasn’t just talking about numbers.

    He’s a child of the Southern Strategy, as defined by Lee Atwater.

    In 1990, he wrote a column where he asked why we thought that “white rule of a black majority is inherently wrong. Where did we get that idea? The Founding Fathers did not believe this.”

    He regularly speaks in white supremacist outlets like the Political Cesspool, where he pimped his latest book – in which he says that America is going to hell as the whites lose their majority status.

    Yeah, he doesn’t say “nigger” – but you and I both know exactly what he means. And the fact that you choose to defend him makes me wonder either about the value of this college education you’re claiming, or how you feel about David Duke (who, by the way, Buchanan accused of “intellectual property theft”).

      Ok so this will be my last remark on this thread because I have other things I should be writing. My point has been proven here but you can feel free to post any further replies. You are right Buchanan doesn’t say n–ger, however I thought you would be interested to know someone who has so you have a place for your righteous indignation. “I’ll have those n–gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”–Lyndon B. Johnson. So since you are on the hunt for bigots and racists you might want to start with your own party. ( This and many others great moments in Liberal racism can be found at the link above.

        Yeah, kid, very nice. Democrats used to be just as bigoted as the Republicans. Excuse me while I pull my shocked face out of the mothballs.

        I’m sorry. Didn’t I react enough?

        OK, I’ve been around this block once or twice, so you’ll excuse me if I give you shorthand. Google the following term: “dixiecrat”

        Now, look up Strom Thurmond, and note which party he switched to. While you’re at it, check out David Duke, and (hey! Look at that!) Pat Buchanan.

        Yes, back when everybody was racist, so were Democrats. Note where all the racists are now, though.

        Oh, hey, I’m sorry. You just got back from that convention, didn’t you?

    That’s a hell of an argument.

    “I beleive in these racist statements, but I know that I am not a racist.”

      Just to clarify,, what statements has Buchanan made that are so super racist? Everything he has said is backed up by fact. So are you saying that we need to ignore truth in order to pursue a more politically correct world? Sounds like Nazi Germany to me, you know like book burnings and the erasing of history.

    Oh, look at that. A little research, and we find that Dr Laura did have a TV show. Over a decade ago, that lasted a year. So, I’ll concede you that point, weak though it is.

    On the other hand, although you only listed Breitbart and Buchanan, you did try to position yourself with them (“Andrew Breitbart puts it like this and I gotta agree, ‘War.’ “).

    But let’s get back to the original point. As a proud racist yourself (and you’re from Tennessee, too – how many stereotypes are you planning to live up to?), what twisted definition of racism do you plan to promote that doesn’t include you?

    And you don’t get to stick your fingers in your ears and scream “Political correctness!” over and over, either. After all, since you’ve already insinuated that blacks are a genetically inferior race, you might as well admit to it and start cutting eye holes in your pillowcases.

      Yea I tend to do research for articles since I don’t spend my time coming up with witty remarks about people’s dead children. As for weak points you would know since all of your points have been weak at best. Because I agree with a statement made by someone I am now attempting to to elevate myself to be in a category with them? I think not. Oh and here is my favorite part. You are calling me a racist as if it is going to scare me. We have now descended into the last refuge of a dying argument. I am aware of what racism is sir and I also know that I am not a racist. However, if you too would like to use this tactic to shut me up I would have to remind you that the “R” words doesn’t scare me, actually it encourages me because I know that it is all you have left and I have pretty much won this argument.

    Just like a big-talking righty – make threats and talk about “war,” but scamper off like frightened children when somebody calls you on it. “Dragged out into the light… hitters on the left… the monster you have created is going to turn on you… War… Ill (sic) be watching your blog… I will be watching.” Hey, you don’t want to be misconstrued, don’t talk smack, kid. (And by the way, there’s a difference between a monster and a rabid weasel.)

    What have I said to bring you to the conclusion that I have no concept of history?
    Hmm… don’t remember what Dr Laura got fired for, no concept of Pat Buchanan’s long history of racist statements? And that’s just current events. If you weren’t already boring me, I might read your earlier stuff to see what else you get wrong.

    I’m also fascinated why you believe it’s all a leftist plot, with no apparent memory of the brief rise of the Teabaggers a few years ago (speaking of people with no memory of history…).

    “Afraid” of twits like Buchanan, Breitbart and you? When it’s so easy to show your lies? You really have an inflated opinion of yourself.

      I am not shirking back from anything. I am simply reminding you of what it is that I said and none of it had to do with threatening violence and by insinuating that I am you are just cheapening your argument since it is clear to anyone that reads this that you are making it something it is not. I said I will be watching your blog and I will be. First of all, while you are pontificating to me about not knowing current events I would direct you back to my column. Dr Laura still has a radio show it was her TV show that she canceled. “I don’t remember why Dr Laura ended her radio show, but it must have had to do with gays using their First Amendment rights, which just proves that they hate the Constitution.” You might want to brush up on your current events sir. I believe the above were your words not mine. I would also direct your attention to the fact that I never included myself in the Breitbart and Buchanan list, however I am touched that you saw fit to include me in it. Oh and when you refer to “tea baggers” you only make your self look like an MSNBC robot, just saying some independent thought would be a welcome change from you guys. So please when you attempt to slander me please do it skillfully, either way we all see you for what you are.

    Golly. You’re a frightening guy, aren’t you? Look – I’m shaking in my shoes. Those badly-veiled threats at the end there? Really nice touch. Exactly the tactics you should use to win friends and influence people. Am I supposed to threaten you back? OK, fine.

    Any time you want to come down to Albuquerque, little man.

    More on topic, I’ve got a couple of points.

    1. political hitters in the employ of the left
    Man, I only wish I could get some of that sweet Soros cash you guys fantasize about. Sorry, dude. I do this because I love my country, and don’t want to see it ruined by small-minded authoritarians with no knowledge of history.

    2. You are afraid to comment with your own name
    No, technically, since you went to my little blog, you should have noticed that my name is prominently posted there in the upper-right corner: Bill Minnich. I’ve just used this pseudonym for too many years to give it up.

    3. pickled baby Gabriel
    Yeah, have you heard that whose story? That Santorum guy is sick!

    4. Buchanan always had proof to back up his statements
    Well, no, what he had was cherry-picked statistics, which only show part of the issue. He also had unsubstantiated rhetoric about the death of the white race which is remarkably similar to the “truths” spouted by David Duke. (You know, you claim to be in college – look up “The Black-White Test Score Gap,” edited by Christopher Jencks and Meredith Phillips. Maybe you can learn things – doubtful, but we can always hope.)

    5. Andrew Breitbart puts it like this
    Breitbart says a lot of idiotic things. He’s a bully and a thug, and he likes to get drunk and yell at people. (Oh, and speaking of “hitters” on somebody’s political payroll…)

    6. You know, for somebody claiming to be in college, you aren’t very skilled with the English language, are you? You’ve figured out Spellcheck, so you have that going for you. But you really should consider learning punctuation.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve wasted ten minutes of my lunch on you. I’ll check in on you after work. (You know – that whole “real world” thing. You should try it sometime.)

      Why would I come to where you live? Very nice touch trying to portray what I said as a veiled physical threat. What have I said to bring you to the conclusion that I have no concept of history? Authoritarians? Funny coming from a guy who supports the silencing of people because you don’t like what they have to say. Why is it that i had to deal with a group of unemployed animals all week at CPAC, also know as Occupy Wall St, under the guise of it is their right to free speech and yet when someone says something the left doesn’t like they are immediately silenced? You can say whatever you like about Buchanan and Breitbart but the fact remains you on the left are afraid of them or you wouldn’t give them such attention. So sorry for wasting your ten minutes but I am sure they could find someone else to flip the burgers.

    Wow, look at you, trying to be all grown up and make adult arguments. I mean, you’re failing completely, but it’s really adorable.

    Let’s see if I can summarize your blog post.

    Liberals seek to end arguments by silencing their opponents. We must fight back by silencing them.

    Buchanan made racist statements. Of course, he had statistics to back them up, so the fact that they were racist doesn’t matter.

    I don’t remember why Dr Laura ended her radio show, but it must have had to do with gays using their First Amendment rights, which just proves that they hate the Constitution.

    Does that pretty much sum it up?

      So I wasn’t even going to comment on this, but then I went and read your blog. Now I have a better understand of who you are. I make an exception for political hitters in the employ of the left. For you I will give you a response and it will go something like this. You are afraid to comment with your own name, typical liberal, you can throw your hateful words out with anonymity. Second of all, after having read your comments about Rick Santorum in your own blog and referring to his dead child as “pickled baby Gabriel”, you have no right to preach to anyone about hate. See you Libs live in a world where you can use hate to destroy but you can also accuse people of using it. Anyway I digress, Pat Buchanan always had proof to back up his statements which may make them uncomfortable truths but truths none the same. You on the left have been seeking to distort and hide the truth and thus why Buchanan got crucified by your media. However I am going to end it like this. Your day is coming where all of you will be dragged out into the light for the world to see your lies and falsehoods. You hitters on the left who seek to defame people and ruin their reputations need to ready yourselves because the monster you have created is going to turn on you. Andrew Breitbart puts it like this and I gotta agree, “War.” Ill be watching your blog Nameless Cynic, so don’t put anything out that would embarrass your party and make sure you are fact checked because I will be watching.
