Pat Buchanan’s Latest Screed Full Of Racism, Not Worth Even $1.99
Where do I begin?
First a note of confession.
I like to listen to Pat Buchanan talk about politics and analyze the issues. He has lots of institutional memory, and is rather good at making the ordinary political stories seems a bit extraordinary. He always makes for a great panelist on news shows.
But that is the best one can say about Pat Buchanan. Over the years he has become a more hard-edged racist and mean-spirited person. His latest work underscores my feelings.
The crazy side of Pat Buchanan that is so damn nativist and puritanical has long been on full display for all to see. There is a feeling from reading past screeds by Buchanan that he likes to sit on his porch and yell at those who touch his lawn. That is what Buchanan seems to be dong again in his latest book, ”Suicide Of a Superpower”.
This book is destined to make for a few news columns by his opponents, and then wind up sooner rather than later on the $1.99 bin at any outlet store.
So you need not waste time searching for the ‘nuggets’ in Buchanan’s book let me present to you from an equally troubled soul, Matt Drudge, some of the topics covered by Buchanan.
Chapter 3. The Crisis of Catholicism
“Half a century on, the disaster is manifest. The robust and confident Church of 1958 no longer exists. Catholic colleges and universities remain Catholic in name only. Parochial schools and high schools are closing as rapidly as they opened in the 1950s. The numbers of nuns, priests and seminarians have fallen dramatically. Mass attendance is a third of what it was. From the former Speaker of the House to the Vice
President, Catholic politicians openly support abortion on demand.”
“How can Notre Dame credibly teach that all innocent life is sacred, and then honor a
president committed to ensuring that a woman’s right to end the life of her innocent child remains sacrosanct?”
Chapter 4. The End of White America
“[W]hite America is an endangered species. By 2020, whites over 65 will
out-number those 17 and under. Deaths will exceed births. The white population
will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear.”
“Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically and culturally, the
verdict of 1848 is being over-turned. 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 have we imperiled our union?” (Page 134)
Chapter 9. ‘The White Party’
“Through its support of mass immigration,
its paralysis in power to prevent 12-20 million illegal aliens from entering and
staying, its failure to address the “anchor-baby” issue, the Republican Party
has birthed a new electorate that will send it the way of the Whigs.”
Really, even $1.99 would be a rip-off to the consumer.
