Okaybye!Crusted-over boil Pat Buchanan will no longer be fomenting all-out race war at MSNBC, he is sad to announce. In his latest syndicated column (HOW MANY MEDIA DID THIS PIECE OF OFFAL NEED?) which is, of course, hilariously titled “The New Blacklist,” Buchanan revealed he is finally leaving the network after ten productive and bigotry-filled years. Let’s celebrate Pat’s legacy of barely concealed racial animus after the jump!

Well, we are not linking to Buchanan’s prickly “Goodbye, Cruel Multiracial World” announcement, where he predictably rails against the liberals and the gays and the blacks and the black liberal gay atheist blacklisters who, of late, have made being an awful racist-slash-homophobe so unpleasant for him. Let’s just quickly highlight the wisdom of Hero Commenter “derek,” and his response to Buchanan:

i don’t think anyone is restricting your speech or editing what you say.

i think we live in free markets. and the free market decided your thoughts and disapproval of the lives of hard-working gay Americans is not profitable.

Hooray for free-markets!

Hooray indeed, “derek”! And now here is Pat Buchanan being hit in the face with a pie.

        The other thing holding back Finns is the fact that the word (with one N) also means the appendage of a fish. That makes the rest of us snicker involuntarily.

    Speaking of gay, black, liberals, they shoulda let Jonathan Capehart (my unwitting gay boyfriend and personal stylist) ambush-fire his Blarney Stone ass on the live tv, give a fabulous speech about the horror that is Pat's "legacy", then kick his dumb ass out the studio. This is probably why they don't let me have my own studio. But I think it sounds killer.

      That would be awesome; you should have your own studio for that.

      He'd been on his way out for a while — but then he picked up loads of cred by garnering so many votes from old Jewish Floridians in the 2000 election. Anyway, the McLaughlin Group should be interesting tonight — he's still on that for now.

        Exactly. Kind of like when you have to go out in public with your grandpa; although times have changed, crazy racist grandpa hasn't caught on that it's not okay to use the N word anymore (at least in public).

            Well, at least the sign doesn't say "Dead N-Word Storage".

    • Terry

      Oddly enough, when he was on McLaughlin he seemed like a voice of reason compared to the host.

      • Yes, Pat had a way of sounding reasonable and intelligent when responding to a topic on that show. It was actually rather surprising to hear all his bigotry and backwards Catholic Conservatism spew out in other contexts, especially when he ran for President. But even in the '80s on McLaughlin, he and Novak were clearly part of the He-Man Israeli Haters Club. When otherwise right-wingnuts go off on an anti-Israel trip, it's usually about anti-semitism, as he has amply demonstrated since then.

      He's a creepy guy who drew a creepy crowd. But hey, it was an entertaining way to kill a lunch hour.

      Pat was out of the race shortly after that speech, and some commie from Arkansas went on to win the presidency.

Because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference."

      I have to run, or I could keep at this all day. Ah, memories….

      • paris biltong

        My admittedly understated point was that Pat's pronouncements as uttered by the men of power whom he has served are eminently forgettable. He was too young to contribute the republican coat and was a Goldwaterite in the early sixties. What may be really fun to think about is how he felt about Kissinger.

          My dad says it's we Scotch Irish assholes that make the whole south suck. So many settled down here, and we are a bunch of dicks.

            He pretty much nails it, yes.

          • prommie

            The Saint Patrick's Day parade in NYC is the single largest assembly of raging fucking assholes on the face of the planet, baying drunken shitheads, every one of them, worse even then an Auburn crowd, that Bama fan who teabagged the unconscious drunk, thats fucking nothing, these people live for mayhem, limbs and appendages, biting. Watch out when you fight a Mick, they fucking bite. Mike Tyson is probably part Mick.

          • FakaktaSouth

            And because I am an arbitrary shamrock shagger, this description here only makes me want to experience the St Patrick's Day parade all the more.
            Alabamians teabagging LSUers in a Krystal's is some kind of metaphor – I just don't know exactly how to capture the beauty yet.

          • prommie

            Oh, thats the best strategy to maximize drinking time and keep the courting time to a minimum, random hookups in the alley behind the dumpster! A real man doesn't put down his beer, same as playing softball.

          • HateMachine

            As in all things, the optimal solution is a beer helmet.

          • A kid in one of my classes once described St. Patties day as "an angry Mardi Gras".

          • SorosBot

            In Philly at least you also get a lot of drunks who still will start raging against the English and claiming it was perfectly OK for terrorists to kill them. And they're mostly like third or fourth generation. Grr. I normally try to avoid going out on March 17.

          • prommie

            Have you ever hung out around any currently English-type peoples? The Irish are regarded as animals.

          • SorosBot

            Well I am an English-type person, so yes.

          • Oh, cool! Next time some asshole bitches about something an African-American did, we'll just blame it on unwanted, rape-borne Scotch-Irish genes.

        • FakaktaSouth

          I get words stuck in my head the way I do songs. I have been walking around saying Padraig for 2 fucking hours now. I gotta go outside or something. (we was Brennan)

      • SorosBot

        Well here's what Pat's old boss Dick had to say about the Irish: "The Irish have certain – for example, the Irish can't drink. What you always have to remember with the Irish is they get mean. Virtually every Irish I've known gets mean when he drinks. Particularly the real Irish. "

        • FakaktaSouth

          That's because we are mean to begin with – it's the whole, making your personality more-so with liquor – Irish folks need not do this.
          ALso, I LOVE how any time ANY "kind" of person is mentioned, there could also be a "what racist thing did Nixon say about them" footnote. And I don't even know what Nixon was to ridicule him, besides a paranoid megalomaniac.

          • SorosBot

            The Nixon tapes are the gift that keeps on giving, when it comes to both the cursing and the bigotry.

          • HistoriCat

            I don't even know what Nixon was to ridicule him

            Well, I don't know what he was ethnically but he was raised a Quaker. If you take that along with the fact that two of the last three Democratic presidents have been Southern Baptist, I think some bizarre inverse religion rule must apply. We need to elect a Scientologist if we want a liberal president.

        • Fare la Volpe

          Hey now, I get really cuddly when I drink.

          Of course I first have to go outside and smash a couple of bottles against a dumpster to "work things out," but afterwards I'm all sunshine and smiles!

      • prommie

        As to this new coalition of the Fundie prods and the opus dei wing of the Catholics, that confuses me too. They are suppose to hate catholics, what with the 'works" thing (its a euphemism for giving charity, and charity goes against the protestant "let the lazy starve" work ethic), and then there is the fucking Pope! But it seems that the historical divide between fundies and catholics has been bridged by the emergence of the new anti-vatican II fundie catholics, and by the discovery of their shared love of fetuses and barefoot, pregnant, and subjegated women,

    • Ruhe

      It's like there is this ladder of conservative intellectual rigor (not automatically an oxymoron) with Buckley once at the top and each guy at every rung all the way down is looking at the guys below and thinking "Jesus, I'm with these idiots?" And now with the Tea Party they don't tolerate anything above "ground level" intellect. It's a herd mentality and they like to choose their leaders by the way they smell.

    It's time for Pat to retire. Seriously. The guy's been at this since Nixon so hate him or love him, it's time for him to draw a nice warm bath, open some veins and enjoy a good wine while he fades to black.

    But then she actually supports gay rights and the rights of her fellow vagina possessors – in fact I'm really not sure what she's still doing in the Republican party, other than pleasing daddy.

    MSNBC has a long history of firing people whose ideology differs from their own. Shouty Keith, Cenk, David Schuster, and now Pat. One of these is not like the others.

  • occams8ball

    I always thought when "petticoat junction" was cancelled, Pat took whatever character actor work he could get.

      LOL! His Mr. Haney character on Green Acres was epic.

  • not that Dewey

    OT: Dave Mustaine denies endorsing Santorum, although he's still apparently a douchebag republitard. I wouldn't want that shit staining my reputation, either.

    • But he did say he wants the Repubican to win because Obama is "the most divisive president we've ever had." More divisive than Buchanan (James) is a remarkable accomplishment of historical ignorance. (Although you could argue Lincoln was literally the most divisive as his election triggered Southern secession.)

    • GOPCrusher

      Megadeth still sucks.

      • not that Dewey

        No disputing that.

  • SorosBot

    Fired despite having the highest ratings on MSNBC for daring to oppose the invasion of Iraq. And that's the supposed liberal news network.

  • gullywompr

    Yeah, that's great and all, but can you really applaud a network that has Krystal Ball as one of their regular commentators?

    • CapnFatback

      I believe the real question is can I not applaud such a network?

    It's good to know that MSNBC is filling the gaping void in their programming by broadcasting Whitney Houston's funeral live.

    But it's sad that we won't have the opportunity hear Pat's Catholic jehadi views on the birth control issue.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Don't worry Pat — old racists never die — they just cling to the vine whilst everything they hold dear is repudiated and replaced with fresh, vibrant multicultural new growth. Probably sucks worse than death sometimes, too.

  • Pat Buchanan can kiss my Irish ass.

    There was a real blacklist in the United States led by HUAC that destroyed careers and ruined lives of a lot of creative people who were guilty of nothing more than exercising constitutionally guaranteed rights. To conflate this with Buchanan's employer finally telling him that he is costing them money and harming their brand is disgusting and cowardly.

    Best post on Pat's web site after Pat gave his bigoted rant telling his followers why he was fired, came from this guy.

    Reverend Mik McAllister, on February 16th, 2012 at 6:20 pm Said:

    "That homosexual acts are unnatural and immoral has been doctrine in the Catholic Church for 2,000 years." <— Buchanon statement

    1. The Catholic church has not existed for 2000 years.
    2. Homosexuality was not considered against doctrine until roughly the 13th century. (Paul’s epistles are political tracts meant to prejudice people against the Romans, who – gasp – allowed same sex relations)
    3. Virtually every species has examples of homosexuality. How can it be unnatural?
    4. Immoral means "violating one’s moral code" – not violating someone else’s moral code. Your moral code in no way governs anyone else’s unless they choose to adopt the same code.

    I can find no redeeming value in you being allowed a pulpit to trumpet your hate and intolerance on MSNBC. You are not an expert on Christianity (proven by your quotes of Leviticus, among others). You are simply a hateful man who delights in leading others to pain and suffering. I hope you find your rightful place in history, with the likes of Jim Baker, Jimmy Swagger, Fred Phelps, and other self-aggrandizing con artists.

    And yes, that is my real name, and I am indeed a minister. I speak for no one but myself. I was called to help others, regardless of the color of their skin, the gender of their loving spouse, the amount of money in their wallet, the building they worship in, or the medical procedures they needed or had in the past. That is a minister.

    Should you ever be given a second chance, I have no faith that you will rise to the occasion. Because ministering to those in need, for you, is unimportant when compared to the chance to fill your pockets with cash and to fill the faces of those around you with hate and fear.

    You may maintain that your God will forgive you. God’s forgiveness may be infinite, but His gullibility is not. Asking forgiveness without any intention of changing your ways is nor repentance, it’s lying.

    It always amazes me how those who preach hate and intolerance feel that it is appropriate to pray to God with the same mouth.

    • Are you creating hairs to split? According to Apple's (New Oxford) Dictionary: Immoral means "not conforming to accepted standards of morality." Merriam Webster: "conflicting with generally or traditionally held moral principles."

      • HamsterSandwich

        The comment was Mik McAllister's, not mine. However, other than that split hair, I agree with most of it.


    Intelligent conservatives like Buchanan who could clearly articulate and defend their loathsome viewpoints and are willing to actually engage with their opponents have now been almost completely excluded from the national media by reflexive, automated outrage on the left. In their absence, we've been left with petty pundits like Michael Steele, his counterpart Lawrence O'Donnell and all their disingenuous ilk . Truly this is a victory for the forces of justice, etc.

    • GOPCrusher

      I will give Pat credit for one thing. Shortly after the President's election and the Republiklans started getting more shouty and ragey, he did try to distance himself from the modern Republiklan Party.
      But he was still an racist asshole.

  • rickmaci

    Bad timing for Buchanan. He was an intolerant, racist, homophobic, misogynistic Republican bigot too far before his time.

  • fuflans

    i think as a matter of principle we should fire anyone who advised a president EIGHT PRESIDENTS ago.

    just for, you know, relevance.

  • Of all the invectives being tossed around here related to Pat, no one's directly discussed his massive ego. Surely someone who worked for the administration that sent the most felons to prison in my lifetime should have a little humility. The term unindicted co-conspirator was tailor-made for Pat. (And maybe his buddy Joe Scarborough, too.)

  • ttommyunger

    Small victories are somehow not satisfying. Now, if he were videotaped having his 'nads nailed to a stump, then being pushed over backwards?

  • When I saw the headline about his being "out" I thought you meant something else. Also in addition to the gays and the blacks, he hates Jews, even the ones who voted for him in Florida.
