Media commentator and former Presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan was recently fired by MSNBC for writing what they believed were controversial things in his new book, Suicide of a Superpower. Buchanan’s central premise is that he believes the United States is a nation in decline because its culture is disintegrating.
That is hardly a controversial notion for anyone that does not feed exclusively at the trough of political correctness.
But for the inteligencia that controls MSNBC and much of the rest of the popular media, this is hate speech.
In an angry post on his blog, conservative commentator Buchanan took his critics to task, writing, “After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.”
Buchanan specifically cites his book titled “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” which had a group called Color of Change saying Buchanan was espousing “white supremacist ideology,” particularly in the chapter titled “The End of White America.”
Speculation that Buchanan would be out of a job soon has been flying since MSNBC President Phil Griffin told the New York Times last month, “The ideas [Buchanan] put forth [in the book] aren’t really appropriate for national dialogue, much less the dialogue on MSNBC.”
Seems like the dialogue has been passed.
The Readers should read what Pat has said defending himself. I definitely agree with you pat.
A Human Rights Campaign that bills itself as America’s leading voice for lesbians, bisexuals, gays, and transgendered people said that Buchanan’s “extremist ideas are incredibly harmful to millions of LBGT people around the world.” Their rage was triggered by a remark to NPR’s Diane Rehm—that I believe homosexual acts to be “unnatural and immoral.”
