The Blacklisting of Pat Buchanan
Pat Buchanan, the former presidential candidate, author, and Nixon White House adviser, finally got the axe from MSNBC. He was out of his element in the Leftist Progressive network or the official network of President Obama. Leftists all over had decried MSNBC for not firing him. You see, the Left is all about promoting freedom of speech as long as it is in agreement with their agenda. You fail to follow the party line, then you are a racist, an ideologue and, of course, a Nazi. Buchanan was never going to follow the Leftist rants of the Socialists who parade themselves as free thinkers and Progressives at MSNBC. That was never going to happen. Pat was always at odds with management at MSNBC. It is amazing Mr. Buchanan has lasted this long (ten years) at that alleged network. Of course, Pat Buchanan exacerbated the problem with his latest book, "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?"
In that book, Mr. Buchanan at long last laid the groundwork that MSNBC executives had been looking for to fire him as they did yesterday after a four month suspension. Some of the topics that Mr. Buchanan discussed in his book sent Leftists into apoplectic seizures. In one chapter, he discussed the end of White America. A black group calling itself "Color of Change" stated Mr. Buchanan's book espoused white supremacy. Really? I'm curious what this group thinks of the New Black Panther Party or their stance in Philadelphia, PA in the 2008 election? Another group, that considers itself a champion for gay rights of LBGT, stated his views are harmful to millions of gays around the world. Mr. Buchanan's remarks? He thinks homosexuality is immoral. There are millions of people "around the world" who share his views. This includes Muslims, who would behead any gays in their country. I can present many more examples of the "perpetually outraged" minorities in this country. But, I think you get the picture.
Mr. Buchanan has stated the Left has succeeded in getting him blacklisted at every avenue available to him, both in news media and on talk radio. Advertisers are fearful of being boycotted by the Left. Yet, the anarchists of the Occupy Movement derail people from working in Oakland, they attack Mitt Romney in Denver and little is said. The stated goal of Leftists is to intimidate, stifle and stop the speech of any conservative. It's not just Pat Buchanan that is being blacklisted. Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin and many other conservatives are being denied the right of freedom of speech. You can twist that any way you wish by saying these Leftists protesters have the right to do this. They do not have the right to disrupt an organized meeting place. Those of you that support such activity, how long before they come after you? Say nothing now and someday, no one will be around to defend you. Pat Buchanan today. Ann Coulter tomorrow?
