Pat Buchanan: Stone Cold Racist


Patrick J. Buchanan: A Brief for Whitey

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?

And now for the rest of the story, you myopic moron. Black labor, produced by involuntary slaves, used and abused by white people since the first slaves were brought to this country, manufactured a lot of the wealth that white people continue to hold today. When slavery ended during the Civil War, most black slaves got nothing. 40 acres and a mule was a myth. And freedom for many blacks was a myth, as they were forced into a different form of indentured slavery as sharecroppers and second class workers who did the same jobs as whites while paid far less by the white owners.

Oh yeah, and the largest recipients of the benefits of the welfare state? Not white people. Not black people. Children. Children are the largest recipients of welfare benefits in our country. (I'm sure PatRacist would be quick to say they should get a job.) Because the criteria for receiving government benefits is need, not race. Additionally, since there are more whites than blacks, more government money goes to poor whites than to poor blacks. Those programs were not designed to bring blacks into the mainstream. They were designed to end poverty. That hasn't worked, but it's not a racial issue. Buchanan's argument is based on a big, fat lie. He just hates blacks because they are black.

How is it that this Neanderthal still has a prominent position in American political discourse? Give him a fire hose and have him say this stuff and he's Bull Connor. Give him a white hood and have him make these statements and he's a Grand Wizard of the KKK, David Duke. But he can make these statements on his website in 2008 and MSNBC invites him on as a guest of political programs several times a day as though his opinions are worth anything.

A pox be upon MSNBC for continuing to employ this unrepentant racist.

I think Patty Buchanan has forgotten that many places in the Bible were in Africa and that there was no Middle East until the 20th century.
I think Pat is not the only person, White, Black, or other, who does not know that many nations considered Israel part of the continent of Africa and that when maps were drawn up, Israel was not separated from the Continent.

I think Patty, and others are not aware that Christians, Jews, and Muslims were brought from Africa to America. These people already had a knowledge of Christ and Christianity, but not, Christmas trees, Jingle Bells, and the like.

Pat has forgotten that such great religious intellectual battles occurred in Africa among such Africans as Arius, Augustine, and countless other Bishops, clergy, and lay people who had a prominent hand in the history of Christianity.

It was, in fact, the African who brought a form of Christianity, minus the paganism, to the European, in love.

Patty and others are to be either pitied or ignored because they are slaves in a world of freedom. They have made themselves slaves to lies and hypocrisy and yet, all they have to do, instead of writing books is read history.

Patty can start with the book of Acts of the Apostles in the Christian scriptures, that lists a great many Africans along with the Jews of that day, on the day of Pentecost. Tacitus & Herodotus are good read also.

Much Peace to all.
