Response to Mercury News Article by Patrick Buchanan – Sept. 13, 2009

Why does the Mercury News continue to print articles by Pat Buchanan a self proclaimed racist? On The Rachel Maddow Show, Buchanan insisted that “white people built America and deserve more”. In the Mercury News article on September 13, 2009 Buchanan states that America is more divided lately about everything. Multiculturalism and diversity is the reason he gives for the division in this country. He says that “the European-Christian core of the country that once defined us is shrinking, as Christianity fades, the birthrate falls and Third World immigration surges.” The old American heroes according to Buchanan like Columbus, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee are replaced by Dr. King and Cesar Chavez.

Well, Buchanan’s old America does not exist any more, thank God, so get over it. This country was built by all of us – black, white, red, brown, yellow; it is our multiculturalism and diversity that makes this country strong.

America is not divided because of our cultural diversity but because of ultra-conservatives, right wing nuts like Pat Buchanan who continue to fan the flames of racism in this country. Calling our President a fascist, thug, and Nazi shows how despicable these ultra conservatives have become. With freedom of speech comes responsibility. Pat Buchanan is not a responsible columnist and The Mercury News should not continue to give this idiot a forum to air his extreme views.

  1. I agree strongly Pat Buchanan is out of his racist mind. There will always be some nut job keeping the pot stired up with their racist views. I think the Mecury News is just trying to sell papers, because their hurting for sells.
