Here is the tenth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Republican Pat Buchanan, for his pseudo-Christian hatred and extreme bigotry with respect to immigration reform.

10PatBuchananPat Buchanan continues to go all-out in his opposition to new bipartisan immigration policy, claiming in a recent interview with conservative radio host Andrea Tantaros that immigration reform will cause the United States to break apart like the Soviet Union.

The Daily Caller posts a clip of Buchanan warning that if “you put 100 million Hispanic folks in the United States,” the southwest will become “as much a part of Mexico as it is of the United States.”

If they have a different language, different culture, different faith, basically you get two peoples and two peoples eventually become two countries,” he said.

Buchanan went on to offer an alternate history of the United States, which he said became “one nation back around 1960, when all the immigrants who had come from eastern and southern Europe 1890-1920 had been assimilated and Americanized” through the Depression, World War II and television programming. “That brought us all together, and now we’re falling apart,” he said… [emphasis added]

Buchanan fails to acknowledge that Europeans coming here also had different cultures, languages and religions, but have merged to form one people.  It is racist to assume that the same will not happen with Latinos.

In this case, there is little Republicans can say.  Buchanan is clearly a Republican and a long term white nationalist.  He even said, “Those who believe the rise to power of an Obama rainbow coalition of peoples of color means the whites who helped to engineer it will steer it are deluding themselves. The whites may discover what it is like to ride in the back of the bus.”

  1. Thought Pat Buchanan was dead. My mistake as I don't keep up with his "news", his pseudo-Christian hatred, and his extreme bigotry and his racist rantings. 

    I don't mind riding in the back of the bus. lol. 

  2. It is beyond me how this self-professed "Christian" can even call himself such. He is nothing but a hate-filled bigot.

    • He may not reealize that there is a difference between authentic Christianity and Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christianity.

  3. Buchanan:  “That brought us all together, and now we’re falling apart,” he said… [emphasis added]

    These Republican – Tea-Bags and party of No are bad for our country… Diversity = Strength

  4. Update on your last Idiot, Adam "Wished-I-Had-A-Really-Big-Penis" Kokesh:

    Kokesh was arrested last night for illegal drug and gun possession.

    Note to Adam: If you're planning on organizing an ARMED march on our nation's capital, it's probably best NOT to have illegal drugs in your home.

    • I'm waiting for kokesh to say that those are cooking mushrooms to go on his steak at dinnertime.  This guy is a seditionist and such a putz!

    • You beat me to it, Nameless.  That's about to be posted in today's Open Thread.  To Republicans, laws are for others.

  5. In the interview with Andrea Tantaros, Buchanan mentions that the Soviet Union disintegrated into 15 countries and Yugoslavia into 7.  What he doesn't mention is the initial coming together — during the Russian Empire and the subsequent Soviet era, elements marched into countries and took them over.  The word imperialists comes to mind.  From Wikipedia: " In 1922, the Bolsheviks were victorious, forming the Soviet Union with the unification of the Russian,Transcaucasian, Ukrainian and Byelorussian republics."  Similar stories exist for Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.  Estonia and Lithuania were occupied by the Russians at the end of WWII and became part of the Soviet Union.  Latvia was incorporated into the USSR forcibly in 1940.  And a similar situation happened in Yugoslavia with various states uniting in 1922 to form Yugoslavia.  The breakup is mostly along those initial lines.

    In the Middle East, countries were arbitrarily created by various other countries (ie Britain and France) at the breakup of the Ottoman Empire.  Nations had been absorbed into the Ottoman Empire at various times over the years and then the breakup of the Ottoman Empire.

    Of course Buchanan doesn't bother to mention any of this because it doesn't serve his purpose.  If the US is falling apart, it is only because of the racist and bigoted people like Buchanan who want pure "white rule" their way.

    The Creator loves wondrous colour, but not the colours in that picture!

    Could not agree more with you guys.

    • The treay makers at Versailles could have saved considerable bloodshed had they paid attention to ethnic divisions when drawing maps.

  6. The pseudo-Christians always have a  bible verse to back up their postion, where was his?  I didnt know he was still around.
