Pat Buchanan OUTS Himself as a RACIST and DailyKos Takes him On!

Pat Buchanan revealed himself as a Racist! (at least he is saying it out loud vs those that pretend they are not.)
During a seemingly rational discussion of America's relationship with Mexico on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC show on Tuesday, Buchanan turned it into a Latino-bashing bigotfest:

Mexico is the greatest foreign policy crisis I think America faces in the next 20, 30 years. Who is going to care, Andrea, 30 years from now whether a Sunni or a Shia is in Baghdad or who’s ruling in Kabul?
We’re going to have 135 million Hispanics in the United States by 2050, heavily concentrated in the southwest. The question is whether we’re going to survive as a country.

Buchanan is not talking about "illeeeegals." He is talking about "Hispanics." Today, the census bureau tells us we have 50M Hispanic citizens in the U.S. In 2050, the census bureau tells us we will have 135M Hispanic citizens in the US. Pat Buchanan is demonizing Hispanic citizens.

Here is what Kos said about Buchanan's comment:
Not just the Southwest, Pat, but in California, in Idaho, in North and South Carolina, in Virginia, in New York, in Florida, in Georgia, in Alaska, in Wisconsin, in every f'ing place in this great country of ours. Maybe even inside your own house!!! (Seriously, who cleans your house and tends your yard, Pat?) And don't look now, but Asians are the second-fastest growing minority group in the country, what with their chop sticks and tofu further destroying your idyllic vision of what American is supposed to look like. I mean, who can recognize Minnesota anymore with their Hmong community, or Michigan, with its large Arab population, or east Texas with its Vietnamese expatriates, or Orange County with its huge Iranian contingent? And look what happened to South Florida when the Cubans took it over! Or are they okay, Pat, because they're "anti-communists"?
Damn foreigners ruining everything! And there's even some like me who put their kids in Spanish-language schools! Egads! People talking foreign! Yes Pat, your paranoia is justified. When we talk Spanish around you, we're talking about you.
Of course, xenophobic retrogrades (like Buchanan) are nothing new, and there's definitely nothing new to Buchanan's racism. It's been long documented. I give him props for at least being open about his beliefs (voicing them out loud), which is more that can be said about most of the rest of them.
But this country will do okay, just like it always has, assimilating wave after wave of immigrants, further enriching our culture, our music, and our cuisine. It's bred into our country's DNA, allowing families like mine to make this great country their home, and breeding immigrant success story after success story, the likes few other countries (if any) can boast.

Kos is exactly right. Our great nation continues to evolve with each new wave of Immigrants. We are not a nation of pilgrims nor are we a country of Mayberrians. We are an evolving, thriving, multi racial, multi ethnic, multi cultural society.

God Bless America!

What Pat Buchanan means is that because of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION we will be transformed into a Hispanic nation rather than what it is now. It isn't natural and we have a right to object to an unnatural demographic change in our country. This wouldn't be happening if we were only talking about population increases from Hispanic citizen births. It will be because of an illegal invasion from Mexico and their offspring!

That isn't diversity. It has nothing to do with diversity but a demographic takeover due to illegal immigration. If the nation becomes a majority Hispanic nation, where is the diversity you claim to relish so much? All it is is genocide againt the white majority and dilution of all other ethnic groups. What a hypocrite!

Of course you don't have the guts to post this, do you Dee?

evil Anon, You sound just like Teddy Roosevelt saying the German immigrants were going to create a new Germany, or the Irish immigrants saying the Italian were going to ruin their neighborhoods, and on and on with each new ethnicity that immigrated came to the US.

Dee said...

Our Nation and the World is evolving. Perhaps you do not approve of the evolution Anon.
I am sure Teddy Roosevelt would not approve of video games, short skirts or Jessica Simpson. Regardless of what Teddy Roosevelt thought then, we are continuing to evolve. I doubt your grandmother would have approved of America's style today or what we watch on TV and today's generation does NOT seek the approval of previous generations as future generations will not seek your or my approval either.

Racist Buchanan is on Hardball now. He is blathering about putting SNIPERS on the Border to take out all the border crossers.

Matthews said, "You want to put border snipers there to take out the workers?"

Buchanan said, "No just the Coyotes."

Buchanan would recruit all the racist MMs to shoot who they perceive as coyotes on site.

Buchanan has gone beyond the pale. Someone MUST REMOVE HIM as a national Pundit.

Pat Buchanan is the irrational national pundit.

Evil anon is a funny person. Genocide? Really? So Hispanics are killing off the White race? Are the tan klan secretly involved?

Evil Anon needs to get out and fly a kite to help ease his troubled mind.

The Obama Barometer :

Democratic National Committee TV Ad "Obama Supports Scott Murphy"
New York special congressional election

On Tuesday, Democrat Scott Murphy faces off against Republican Jim Tedisco in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who was appointed to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate.

This is a must-win for Obama and for Michael Steele, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Both are investing their prestige on their candidates.

A Siena Research Institute poll released two weeks ago showed Tedisco leading Murphy by just four points (45 percent to 41 percent), down from his 12-point advantage (46 percent to 34 percent) a month ago.
