It was more than two months ago that liberal bloggers across the nation -- for the umpteenth time -- demanded that MSNBC remove serial racist Pat Buchanan from its lineup. This was because of the publication of his book, "Death of a Superpower."
Now, according to the Associated Press, MSNBC President Phil Griffin has finally noticed the racist in the woodpile.
MSNBC’s Griffin apparently believes, however, that Buchanan’s newest work has crossed a line. Suicide of a Superpower came out in October and features chapters with titles like “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America.”
The AP quotes Griffin as saying, “Because of the content of the book, I didn’t think it should be part of the national dialogue, much less part of the dialogue on MSNBC.”
Well, DUH! Liberal bloggers have been calling for this since October.

Racist Tea Party Nation defends racist Pat Buchanan’s racist new book of racism
There is one thing racists just do not like! Other than minorities, that is. They really do not like minorities. But everyone knows that.
What everyone might not know is that one thing they really hate, other than people whose skin is a different color than theirs, is being called “racists.” Nor do they particularly care for it when uppity minorities and negroes and such call one of their fellow prominent racists “racist.”
This would explain why Judson Phillips, head of the racist Tea Party Nation, came rushing to racist Pat Buchanan’s aid after this column and other progressive writers across the Internet referred to his new book, “Death of a Superpower” as racist and called for MSNBC President Phil Griffin to finally give Pat his walking papers.
In this case, Phillips adopts the “Pee Wee Herman” strategy of debate. “I know you are, but what am I?”
For you see, the real racists in this story are the people who read Buchanan’s nostalgic burbling about the good old days of segregation and pronounce such burblings as racist.
On his blog (on which one must join the Tea Party Nation before being allowed to leave a comment) Phillips makes it clear he is no fan of Buchanan. But…
Despite my opinions of Pat Buchanan, he is clearly a man of accomplishment who does very intelligently express the sentiments of parts of the conservative movement. It is no shock that the left is going after him.
The left looks for any chance it has to silence a conservative and they are trying to do so by demanding he be removed from his position as one of the few conservative voices on MSNBC.
Yup. It’s the left’s fault that Pat Buchanan is being called a racist because the left is calling him a racist. It has nothing to do with the racist twaddle and claptrap in his book, pointed out in an earlier column in this space.
And you know who else the real racists are? The victims of institutional racism. That’s who!
Let’s be blunt. The racist in this story is the group, “Color of Change.” They are a very anti-American, far left group.
Never heard of “Color of Change”? They call themselves a web-based, grass roots organization that aims to strengthen the political voice of “Black America.”
The very definition of “uppity.”
You know why they are racist and anti-American? Because they hold to this view:
“Buchanan tries to blame the country’s economic problems on programs like affirmative action, welfare, and food stamps — programs which help vulnerable and disadvantaged Americans of every race, but which Buchanan and others on the far right have portrayed as only helping lazy and undeserving minorities,” Color of Change alleges.
“He takes every opportunity to stoke the racial anxiety and fear that exists among some white people. In short, Buchanan wants to pit white people against people of color,” the organizers said. “He believes in it, he thinks it’s good political strategy, and in his new book he encourages the GOP to become ‘the white party.’”
Bad “Color of Change,” calling Buchanan a racist when all he did was write a racist book filled with racist ideas. Bad, racist “Color of Change,” for pointing out that Buchanan takes every opportunity to stoke racial fears among white people. Bad, racist, anti-American “Color of Change” for correctly pointing out that Buchanan wrote that the GOP should become “the White Party.”
It’s all true. But it’s bad, racist and un-American for “Color of Change” to point that out.
Phillips objects to “Color of Change” and their demand that MSNBC show Buchanan the door. You know why? It’s un-American.
They are a danger to America and to freedom. Let’s hope MSNBC will not give into their lunacy and keep Pat Buchanan on their channel.
Those evil racists at “Color of Change.” Trying to hold a network responsible for the words of people they employ? Holding a network responsible for associating with the political views of a white supremacist who has praised Hitler, who has said “both sides were right” in the Civil War? Who do these uppity so-and-so’s think they are?
