(honest to Jeebus....I actually thought this guy had died within the past couple years....And here he is getting fired from a low-level cable TV news gig)

Blacklisted By Liberals And Homos!


Pat Buchanan says that liberals and homosexuals have hounded him off of MSNBC and that he is now blacklisted in the media.
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. [snip] 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.” That homosexual acts are unnatural and immoral has been doctrine in the Catholic Church for 2,000 years. Is it now hate speech to restate traditional Catholic beliefs? [snip] Defy them, and they will go after the network where you work, the newspapers that carry your column, the conventions that invite you to speak. If all else fails, they go after the advertisers. I know these blacklisters. They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats, and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.​
Muttley laugh.

It's admittedly sad that an old, rich, bigoted white guy just can't catch a break in the year 2012

Bonus Humor potential in that PB's job at that cable network might possibly be filled by a lower-wage, Mexican immigrant commentator

(stole this one from a smarter, funnier interweb poster): This is television, folks. They're just making space for a younger race-baiting homophobe, one with marvellous cheek bones and a huge rack.

I always found these type of quotes to be funny. How exactly, is an idea dangerous? Ive had ideas of murding people in traffic. Ive had ideas about funny jokes containing racist overtones. Hell, some people have ideas about fornicating with their mother (dont get excited Dave, im talking about Frued) but that doesnt make them or the idea of it dangerous. Actions can be dangerous.... ideas? Not so much.

I'm a Buchanan republican, when he was an integral part of the Nixon & Reagan administrations his point of view was considered mainstream. Now that the far left is demeaning his contributions and trying to eliminate him from the political
landscape it demonstrates the downward spiral this country is experiencing.

I'm reading his latest book, who can refute his observations based on historical fact?
