Pat Buchanan Endorses Russian Bigotry

Pat Buchanan
Former MSNBC host, thrice-failed presidential candidate, anti-semite, and fan of Hitler Pat Buchanan reminds us of his proud homophobia in an article he wrote for World Net Daily championing Russia's war on homosexuals. The piece contains the usual religous dogma, historical innacuracies, and false equivalencies:

Only yesterday, homosexual sodomy, which Thomas Jefferson said should be treated like rape, was outlawed in many states and same-sex marriage was regarded as an absurdity. Was that America we grew up in really like Nazi Germany? In the Catholic schools this writer attended, pornography – let alone homosexual propaganda – would get one expelled. 

Nevermind that the American government is not a theocracy, Jefferson wasn't a homophobe, many of our founding fathers were fine with slavery and treating black people like property, and despite both beginning with "p", pornogrophy and propaganda are not the same thing.

If you can stomach it, Buchanan's full piece is available to read HERE

  2. Last I checked, we weren't living in Catholic School. This is America. I'm sure there are countries someone of Mr. Buchannan's creepy bigotries would be more comfortable in. Russia and Uganda come to mind. I suggest he pack and move to where he will find like-minded worms.

  6. I'm sorry, Pat and his sister have closet case written all over them.
    Bay had to leave the Catholic church for something even crazier. She became a Mormon.

  7. Thomas Jefferson compared homosexuality to rape? Really? Is that the same Thomas Jefferson that raped his slaves? Our founding father TJ?

  8. pat & his catholic school generation (stuck in their boxes, much like fundy muslims) are the reason the world is now in such peril--hasn't worked so well, has it? let the next generations have a go with less judgement, more forgiveness & compassion

  9. As Molly Ivins remarked once bout an earlier Buchanan ejaculation, this probably sounds better in the original German.

  12. I will always remember what the evil Buchanan said on that dog and pony show: The McLaughlin Group. It was in the early days of the AIDS epidemic when thousands were sick and dying. He said: "Homosexuals had declared war on Mother Nature and now she is seeking her revenge". He is simply SCUM!!!

  13. Pat would be a retired journalist were it not for Nixon, who elevated many, many psychologically damaged people to positions of influence in his administration. Pat should realize that his influence has nothing to do whatsoever with his skills, personality or talents.

  15. Why wouldn't he back Putin's anti-gay putsch? He's always been a fascist at heart.

  17. So Jefferson said sodomy was equvalent to rape? But it was OK for him to father illegitimate children with black women? Right, I got it!

  18. Oh! The irony of it all! Former uber-anti-communist, Pat Buchanan, is now all atwitter over Russia draconian anti-LGBTQ laws. Well, it figures. Here's the plan: let's keeping winning marriage and civil equality nationwide, until it is reality in all 50 states, and then, let's encourage Pat B. and all of his cronies to emigrate to Russia. Russia and America's conservative reactionaries deserve each other.
