Suicide of a Superpower, will America survive to 2025 is the name of Pat Buchanan’s latest book.
“Our government is engaged in the manic pursuit of equality of rewards, as it seeks to erect an egalitarian utopia that has never before existed. Less and less do we Americans have in common. More and more do we fight over religion, morality, politics, history, and heroes. And as our nation disintegrates, our government is failing in its fundamental duties, unable to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.”
Truths like that are too inconvenient for MSNBC to tolerate.
MSNBC president Phil Griffin said that Mr. Buchanan argues in his book that the “European and Christian core of our country is shrinking,” which is damaging the nation “ethnically, culturally, morally, politically.” The book also contains a chapter titled, “The End of White America.” Mr. Griffin said these ideas aren’t really appropriate for national dialogue, much less the dialogue on MSNBC.
Griffin is right about one thing. MSNBC is not a place of open dialogue. Pat Buchanan is a misfit in a network that features Chris Matthews and Ed Schulz in prime time. However, Buchanan’s ideas are not just appropriate for national dialogue, they are precisely the concepts we should be discussing.
Is Buchanan right? Is he wrong? We would never know if Griffin and his book burners controlled the day. Thank God, they don’t.
