Buchanan did not outlive his usefulness but was specifically targeted as persona non grata by the left, which forced MSNBC into eliminating him from their programming. The goal of these liberal organizations is not just to “blacklist” Buchanan. Their ultimate goal is to make all political discourse to the right of Bill Clinton unacceptable.
Noted conservative strategist and political commentator Pat Buchanan became the left’s latest casualty after he spoke a few truths too many in his new book Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025.
Buchanan, a former Republican presidential candidate and Senior Advisor to Presidents Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, and Richard Nixon, made headlines earlier this month when he was dismissed as a political contributor on MSNBC after 10 years of service.
The writing was on the wall after MSNBC indefinitely suspended Buchanan in January. At the time MSNBC President Phil Griffin said the arguments made in the book should not “be part of the national dialogue, much less part of the dialogue on MSNBC.”
Of particular concern were two chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America,” which drew criticism from both the left and the right.
The liberal jackals smelled fresh blood on the savannah and turned the dial on their hissy-fit monitor into overdrive. MSNBC caved in after a wide scale pressure campaign from the professional wing smear artists at Media Matters, the Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Color of Change.
