Angry White America’s best-known advocate is at it again. Patrick J. Buchanan just couldn’t muzzle himself long enough before his inner-most self had to say something crazy (again) regarding African-Americans.
How does a so-called legitimate news operation like NBC/MSNBC employ this guy? They allow this guy to appear on their airways several times a day as an analyst delivering commentary. After his syndicated, racially charged column titled “A Brief for Whitey,” I wonder if he’ll be on TV this evening.
This is an excerpt from his column.
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.
Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.
Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?
To read the complete lunacy from Buchanan’s pen here’s the link http://www.creators.com/opinion/pat-buchanan/a-brief-for-whitey.html.
First, I want to hear from Keith Olbermann, Tim Russert, Chris Matthews and all the other on-air talent at NBC/MSNBC. I want to know if they support or reject Buchanan’s twisted prose or if they agree.
Second, there were millions of Africans that were stolen from the mother continent that died (i.e. murdered, suicided, illness) during the Middle Passage to the Americas.
Third, Buchanan is strongly against Mexicans (other immigrants) coming to America seeking the same so-called benefits he claims were given to ungrateful Black People.
Fourth, all the institutions (private, public) that he writes about were built upon the free labor provided by Black People for centuries. Any fractional, monetary gift (or program) initiated for the benefit of African People in America were more than justified. However, these so-called programs (i.e. welfare, etc.) have been as destructive as any other strategy to keep the people dependent. Notice that there was no mention of the promise of 40 acres and a mule to each freed slave. That would have provided untold wealth to Blacks.
Lastly, he just gets on my d*** last nerve and I hope that I don’t have to see his face much longer on programming I like to watch at times.
Buchanan will be waiting a long time before I thank him for stealing my ancestors and enslaving them against their free will. I will never bow to his thinking that a free people forced into the greatest, criminal enterpise known to man should be grateful of that experience. He has no compassion, nor does he care about the miseducation, murder, displacement and destruction of hundreds of millions of free people that were descendents of the cradle of civilization.
