MSNBC supports white supremacists unless they fire this man

What does Pat Buchanan have to do to get fired from MSNBC, show up to work in a white sheet?

    Yes, Virginia, there is a white supremacist on MSNBC.

    His name is Pat Buchanan.

    Some of Pat Buchanan’s previous statements include these quotes.

    “Take a hard look at Duke’s portfolio of winning issues and expropriate those not in conflict with GOP principles, [such as] reverse discrimination against white folks.”

    And yes, that is David Duke whom Pat is referring to.

    Sadly, that is just the beginning, and it barely even scratches the surface.

    At the bottom of this diary there are e-mail addresses where you can demand that this racist hack be given das boot for the hateful bile he spews forth, bile which has no place in 2009 or America in any year.

 More lowlights in Pat Buchanan’s career.

” an individual of great courage…Hitler’s success was not based on his extraordinary gifts alone. His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path.”

Originally quoted in The Guardian 1/14/92

    Yes, that Hitler. The mushy, flawed and weak statesman who stood in Hitler’s path happened to be American President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, to name a few.

    “integration of blacks and whites … is less likely to result in accommodation than it is in perpetual friction, as the incapable are placed consciously by government side by side with the capable,”

mediamatters.org

    Guess who is more capable in Pat’s eyes. Need a hint?

   

[For President Nixon to visit King’s widow on the anniversary of King’s assassination because it would] outrage many, many people who believe Dr. King was a fraud and a demagogue and perhaps worse…. Others consider him the Devil incarnate. Dr. King is one of the most divisive men in contemporary history.

    Of course, Pat is no fan of teh gays either.

    With 80,000 dead of AIDS, our promiscuous homosexuals appear literally hell-bent on Satanism and suicide

     And even I am not going to touch that 9-11/God hates teh Gays connection with a ten foot collection plate passing pole.

     Of course, we should not forget Buchanan’s stance against women.

    The real liberators of American women were not the feminist noise-makers, they were the automobile, the supermarket, the shopping center, the dishwasher, the washer-dryer, the freezer.

     Of course, the Gods forbid that any combination of woman/minority/non-catholic all happen to exist in the same person. In his bashings of Supreme Court Justice Nominee Sonia Sotomayor, Pat explains why latino women in particular who have the audacity to vie with White Men for positions of power could not possibly be as qualified. In Pat’s fevered mind it must be an affirmative action nomination, as we have seen what he thinks of the likelihood of a non white persons chances at being capable when compared with white competition, as evidenced by his comments quoted above.

     Recently, Pat Buchanan appeared at this event  

Spelling FAIL

    Peter Brimelow is the editor of VDare.com, whom I will not provide a link for. Here is a quote from their FAQ page, in order to let you know what they are all about.

By   Peter Brimelow

Why VDARE? Well, we thought about MSDARE, but we didn’t want an antitrust suit.

    I have always been fascinated by the story of Virginia Dare. She was the first English child to be born in the New World, in August 1587, shortly after the founding of what was to become known as “The Lost Colony” on Roanoke Island off the North Carolina coast.

    Guess what Pete, when the second question on your FAQ page is “Is VDARE.com a ‘White Nationalist’?, you probably aren’t making yourself clear about it, but, then again, when you complain about ‘Multiculturalists’ in the first answer of your FAQ’s, maybe you are.

    Media Matters notes that Pat Buchanan appeared on the June 29, 2008, and September 14, 2006, editions of “The Political Cesspool,” a white nationalist radio show whose “Statement of Principles” asserts that it “represent[s] a philosophy that is pro-White.” Buchanan’s appearance on the show last June was streamed live on Stormfront.org, a major white nationalist online forum popular with neo-Nazis, skinheads and other hard-core racists. Buchanan’s recent books have been filled with citations of white nationalists’ works and advance racist arguments about Latino immigrants, such as that they enter the U.S. to invade it. . .

Southern Poverty Law Center

     After his visit on “The Political Cesspool”, his gracious hosts had this to say of Pat’s visit.

    In an exultant E-mail sent out by the radio show after Buchanan was featured, long-time white supremacist Winston Smith celebrated.

    “Don’t ever let anyone tell you that this broadcast doesn’t matter, my friends,” he wrote, “because when the likes of Pat Buchanan agrees to be on your program, he does so only after his people have researched the program and decided it’s in their interest.”

Southern Poverty Law Center

     No more of this bullshit. I say we throw down the gauntlet at the feet of MSNBC. MSNBC has fired others for less, and if they do not fire Pat Buchanan, we must assume that they endorse his brand of hate and fear mongering.

    But the most extraordinary thing about MSNBC’s continued employment of Pat Buchanan is that all of this barely scratches the surface. Anyone willing to devote a few minutes can easily find dozens, if not hundreds, more examples of flagrantly over-the-top rhetoric targeting racial and ethnic minorities, women, gays, and immigrants, among others — from the ’60s through the present day.

    Pat Buchanan’s bigoted comments are not merely an aspect of his public persona; if they are not what he is best known for, they should be. MSNBC needs to explain why they are not disqualifying.

     Sure, it is all well and good when Olbermann and others at MSNBC call out Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Boss Limbaugh for the disgusting rhetoric they spew, but what about the voices of hatred within your own house. To ignore Buchanan while you chastise O’Reilly is hypocritical.

    If you believe in equality for all, then you should agree that people can be equally wrong. This is true regardless of whether the lying hate monger you despise works for a competing broadcast company or your own.

    Contact MSNBC and let them no that Buchanan’s bullshit was just as hateful in 1959 as it is today in 2009. Or should we wait until FOX hires him to say that?

   An appropriate way to express my feelings on the matter

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?

    why they keep that old asshole on the payroll, or why anybody thinks that what he says is worth a damn.

    Was flipping channels the other day, and went by CNN (which I’ve sworn off).  But they were talking about something interesting, so I lingered on it for just a second … and then David Frum’s stupid ugly mug came up, and he was one of the “experts” they were consulting.  

    What a bunch of jackasses.  To have this guy come on as an “expert” is like having business advice from Bernie Madoff.  

    David Frum is a goddamn loser.  So now he’s an expert?  On what, LOSING?

    And the “news” media wonders why they’re dying.

    It’s pretty fucking obvious to anyone with a brain.

  3. “Allow Pat Buchanan to show the world he’s an ass”

    See, I personally prefer the Pat Buchannans of the world to the Rush Limbaughs and Newt Gingrichs.  Pat is what he is.  Doesn’t hide or run from it.  It’s there for all to see.  He even occasionally has a salient point from out in right field.  

    I say keep him on, but have his home address and phone number on a permanent scroll beneath his image while he speaks.  

  4. they have to appear “balanced”, don’t they?

    So, if Maddow balances Scarborough, and Olberman balances Tweety, hmmmm….

    what balances elderly racist theocratic nutjob loony shit for brains?

    Yeah, you’re right, he needs to spend more time with his twin brother Bay on the “Brother Loves Traveling Salvation Show”.

    These people that have an invisible friend and want you to know it are fun to watch for about ten seconds. Then I’m pressing the “+” on the remote channel selector because the Comedy Channel is almost as funny as Squinty Eye Buchanan.

    …since it was going to a comment to your story rather than your story.

  5. cheers
