Title: You Negroes should be more grateful
Post by: DamonO on March 22, 2008, 03:17:06 pm
So says conservative commentator Pat Buchanan in his latest column.  Why this guy is considered to be a respected political observer is beyond me.  Anyway, here it is from Media Matters:

In a March 21 syndicated column headlined "A Brief for Whitey," conservative commentator and MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan asserted, "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." Buchanan was discussing Sen. Barack Obama's March 18 speech addressing race and controversial comments by his former pastor, Jeremiah A. Wright. He continued, "Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American." Buchanan then asserted that "no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans." Later in the column, Buchanan added: "We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?"

Buchanan repeatedly referred to Obama as "Barack" throughout the column, using Obama's last name only once, in the 27th paragraph.

Buchanan's column, syndicated by Creators Syndicate, was posted on the WorldNetDaily, Real Clear Politics and VDARE.com websites, as well as on his own website.

From Buchanan's March 21 column:

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

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?

"gratitude?"

We invented American popular culture. We sustain it. That should count as enough gratitude. There would be no street lights without us. No blood plasma.

We built the capitol and a good portion of the rest of this place. We fight and die in the wars even though we get treated like sh*t at home. Every war since the one that gave us this country. We have FORCED this nation to live up to the sales pitch when it didn't want to. On that score alone America owes US.

So Buchanan can stick it. And, if he'd like help with that, he can drop by my place anytime.

From many, perhaps infinite, angles without Blacks America would not be America.

Just to our north we have Canada stuck with two languages and I believe a significant native population.

When those immigrants came to America and saw "sub-human Negroes" speaking English they made sure that at the very least little Johnny learned to speak English even if they pretended to have Nationalist and linguistic pride from Europe...Didn't work that way in Canada.

PS: I was always partial to "Negro", but at certain levels when I hear a White say it...I get touchy.

I'm supposed to be grateful the White man kidnapped my ancestors, stowed them in a boat, beat, raped, and starved them, dragged them across the ocean, ripped away their languageculture, separated them from their families, prevented them from voting, running for office, getting an education, and otherwise joining society, gave them the cast-off scraps, insulted them continuously, and determines what their lot in life will be?

Pat Buchanan can f*cking suck my dick. Wait... No... I don't want him anywhere near my dick. He can take his social programs and all the so-called "gifts" and shove them up his ass.

And within the infinitely of points here's another angle (I've thought on this for years):

In the continents of North America and South America respectively the two largest political regions, America and Brazil, both have had significant Negro populations from DAY ONE. (Ironically Brazil, per the above mentioned point, also has a linguistic prowess). Another comparison on this point is the almost infinite nations in the Western Hemisphere that all speak the same language, share a dominant religion and between them are no more different than New York City and Salt Lake City...Yet they are 17 different nations.

It seems that if Negroes are not around to be kicked, they start kicking each other.

Without Blacks...America would not be America.

Obama has a different standard. In fact it was Pat Buchanan's well known and very conservative sister, Bay Buchanan, who was of the first and strongest admirers of Obama's speech.

In the nature that surrounds me though I expect to be told of my own needs as it pertains to vacuums and little friends known as Richard.

While your doing that here's another in the infinity of points (Which of course by mathematical theory contains an infinity of points within it's own point): The Civil War...Without Blacks, America would not be America.

In the infinity of things there is also people.

When Lewis and Clark did their Northwest/Louisiana Purchase thing one of them had a slave named York who went along for the trip. Of course being the negro he did a disproportionate amount of the manual labor but more importantly when Lewis and Clark would run into the occasional band of violent Indians one reason they didn't get killed was because the Indians were curious of the "dark one" and oft times York would developer a relationship with the Indians at a "tribal" level that was invaluable to Lewis and Clark.

Well they come back to east of the Mississippi and are cheered and hailed as "heroes". EVERYONE from American civilization who went with Lewis and Clark from the cook to the scout got a chunk of money and a piece of land....Except one: York.

Without Blacks...America would not be America.

Of the original 13 Colonies, several southern states would not of been viable entities without their majority slave populations.

Without Blacks, America would not be America.

Buchanan is a bigoted asshole.

As an aside, you might be interested to learn that he is also an antisemite.

He is also a highly-respected political commentator and influential conservative and Republican.  So what does that say about the people and organizations that embrace him?

What that "says" is that there are schmucks on both the Left and the Right.   >:(  ...   ;D

I for one am not surprised about how Buchanan thinks. When he ran for President, I wasn't fooled by his choice of Ezola Foster (a black woman), as his running mate. Having been rejected by his first two or three choices, Ezola was the best he could get. Years ago, I actually heard (and saw as I was watching him on t.v. at the time), Buchanan say something to the effect that America needs more Europeans and less Zulus. That was some time ago and my memory was fuzzy, so I had to find a source to verify if I'd heard correctly or not. Here is an excerpt of what Buchanan said:

Buchanan acknowledges he's saying things that most Americans would prefer not to hear and that many condemn as racist and inflammatory.

"My response is that it's too late in the day for political correctness," he says. "After Sept. 11, with those acts perpetrated by people we literally welcomed into this country, Americans ought to be aware there is such a thing as too much diversity, too much welcoming. Look: I've said that if you bring 100 Zulu tribesmen into Virginia and 1 million British, the British would be assimilated more comfortably. I base that on those British coming into an American culture based on English law and tradition. And when I said that, something that seems like a simple statement, I've been accused of racism."

Now, Buchanan says, "I could substitute Iranians or Saudis for the Zulu, and people might understand." And, he adds, originally citing the Zulus was in no way racist "because I'm friends with the Zulu ruler. It's just a matter of acknowledging the differences in culture."

I always thought of antisemitism as a type of bigoted assholery instead of a separate category.
Semantics aside, I'm sure you're right about his specific and general assholiness.  ;)
