    What a surprise, Obama's Henchmen over at GE/NBC got rid of Pat Buchanan. And it was supposedly spurred on by a Racist Group with close ties to the President. Socialists/Progressives fear & despise Free Speech. Shame on GE/NBC.


    The New Blacklist, by Pat Buchanan...


    My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.

    After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.

    The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?"

    A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it "exists to strengthen Black America's political voice," claimed that my book espouses a "white supremacist ideology." Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, "The End of White America."

    Media Matters parroted the party line: He has blasphemed!

    A Human Rights Campaign that bills itself as America's leading voice for lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgendered people said that Buchanan's "extremist ideas are incredibly harmful to millions of LBGT people around the world."

    Their rage was triggered by a remark to NPR's Diane Rehm — that I believe homosexual acts to be "unnatural and immoral."

    On Nov. 2, Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who has sought to have me censored for 22 years, piled on.

    "Buchanan has shown himself, time and again, to be a racist and an anti-Semite," said Foxman. Buchanan "bemoans the destruction of white Christian America" and says America's shrinking Jewish population is due to the "collective decision of Jews themselves."

    Well, yes, I do bemoan what Newsweek's 2009 cover called "The Decline and Fall of Christian America" and editor Jon Meacham described as "The End of Christian America." After all, I am a Christian.

    A government mouthpiece censoring opposition views. Of course. It should be expected.

    You must have been appalled at the real blacklisting that was the result of that wingnut Joseph McCarthy in the 50s.

    You mean that Obama has BLACKLISTED Buchanan like the GOP blacklisted Buchanan back when they announced that he was a crypto-NAZI?

    What makes Pat Buchanan, or you for that matter, think that he is somehow entitled to work at MSNBC,

    just because he wants to?

    How is this a 'free speech' issue?

    He will be hired elsewhere. I disagree with many of his opinions but do not deny his intelligence.

    Color of Change had a major hand in this. Obama's sidekick Van Jones co founded this group.

    Lou Dobbs is now hosting a show on FOX after his exit from CNN.
