Pat Buchanan Out at MSNBC, Blames 'Militant Gays', 'People of Color'

Speaking about himself in the third person, Pat Buchanan blamed gays and "people of color" for his firing by MSNBC network president Phil Griffin following outrage over his book  Suicide of a Superpower, Think Progress LGBT reports.

BuchananSaid Buchanan: “Look, for a long period of time the hard left, militant gay rights groups, militant — they call themselves civil rights groups, but I’m not sure they’re concerned about civil rights — people of color, Van Jones, these folks and others have been out to get Pat Buchanan off T.V., deny him speeches, get his column canceled.”


GLAAD's Aaron McQuade applauds: "But just as Pat writes what he believes to be the truth (in chapters with titles like “The End of White America”) so do those of us who believe that divisive and discriminatory voices like his have no place in rational discussions about the issues facing our country...We hope MSNBC stands by its decision not to lend its credibility to Pat Buchanan’s vile and anti-everything comments, and keeps him off the air.  (And of course, we look forward to seeing him become a regular on Sean Hannity’s show, likely within minutes of his removal from MSNBC becoming official.)"

  3. Ah yes Pat, always play the victim. It's a sign of the fascist mindset. People like him are never responsible for what happens to them, they're being victimized by oh, I dunno; The Jews, or the Gays, or the Blacks. Pity the poor defenseless and powerless white majority, so discriminated against by powers greater than themselves. Proof of that is the lack of marriage equality; so many obstacles impeding hetero marriages in this country enforce by the Gay overlords. But, as Joan Rivers once said, we must not be too hard on Pat. After all he lost both his parents during WW2; They fell off a guard tower at Auschwitz.

  4. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy... pity... now, if he'd just shut up, but that's too much to wish for, alas.

  5. How does MSNBC justify hiring Al Sharpton? Believe me, I'm no Pat Buchanan fan, but I stopped watching MSNBC when they hired Sharpton.

  7. Yes Pat, we held a gun to your head as you penned this drivel.

  8. Pat will have the chance to play the victim one more time when he finally wakes up and realizes the Christian right will throw him under the bus as well as he is -afterall- horrors-Catholic-and the elephant in the room with the fascist Conservatives is that the fundies love the support they get from Catholics on anti-choice, anti-contraceptive topics but in the end the Catholics are Mary-loving cannibals in their eyes-but they will use them -in the best Christian tradition. So be prepared -you and your kind are not part of the rapture crowd-Patty,

  9. Stop clutching those pearls, cupcake. You were fired because you're a bigot. All the "militant gays and people of color" did was point it out.

    So quick to judge others, yet so little self-awareness. Is that what happens when you start thinking of yourself in the third person?

  10. As an off white nonmilitant homosexual I take offense at Pat's neglect of my efforts to have him booted.

  11. What a pussy.

  12. "Pat Buchanan out at MSNBC"

    That could have more than one meaning. Is Pat about to reveal some long-hidden tendencies? (sorry, folks. I'm in one of those silly moods again!)

  13. Look within, Pat, rather than blaming someone else.

  14. Pat Buchanan has always been a negative and hateful force on the american political scene. I will always remember that in the early days of the Aids epidemic when thousands were dying; he said on the McLaughlin show:"Homosexuals declared war on mother nature and now she is getting her revenge" The man is at his core a hater.

  15. He probably meant to say "_____s in the military and colored people" but got confused and went P.C. for a moment.

  17. Would being a militant make me look thinner?

  18. I just don't get why it took MSNBC this long to finally can this bigot's behind?
    @ Lucifer, Al Sharpton is nothing like Pat Buchanan and in fact supports same-sex marriage.

  19. The KKK BBQ has a place all set for you Pat. No need to bring the beer or cross. All will be furnished upon your arrival.

  20. Perhaps instead of blaming gays and people of color, Pat should look inward at his own bigotry and narrow-mindedness. Why doesn't he just go work for the Santorum campaign?

  21. ummm...doesn't GLAAD's statement validate buchanan's suspicions? calling for his silencing is exactly what he said is happening to him. censoring, shouting down,'glitter-bombing', and attempting to destroy others does nothing to advance our interests.

    Posted by: el polacko | Jan 12, 2012 1:37:54 AM

  22. @ny2.0: sharpton is the mirror-image of buchanan...he just has a different list of groups. he is, for instance, a raving anti-semite...but i guess that's okay as long as he claims to support marriage?

  23. So happy that Pat Buchanan's dried up prune face of hate will no longer contaminate my TV screen when I watch MSNBC. Let him take his vile commentary to Faux where he'll be welcomed with opened arms.

  24. So we got him fired? Goodie and YAY! for us!

  25. It great to see that MSNBC finally took Pat off the air but I was offended by many of the thing Pat has said to Protect "The Idea" of being an Republican. The question is will they stand by it.

    MSNBC banned Mark Helprin and then turned it into a suspension; now he is back on the air. Will they stand by this? That is the question? Joe Scarborough told many whoppers and knew Pat would always be there to push the Republican way of thinking.

    Now they have Micheal Steel assuming the Pat Buchanan's role, of spinning Talking Points in Falsehoods and delivering them as if they were facts. Micheal Steel is better at it without offending as many people along the way.
