Why fire him? He's the guy the one guy MSNBC could point to when a normal person looked at their evening lineup and realized it was just as crazy as Fox's and say, "Hey we got Pat, ask him about the all the good things the Nazis did."

About damn time.

Buchanan, in a column posted on Thursday, called the decision "an undeniable victory for the blacklisters."

The book "Suicide of a Superpower" contained chapters titled "The End of White America" and "The Death of Christian America."

Sadly, this isn't considered right wing extremism anymore, its just your average everyday Republican Party rhetoric.

I thought Republicans like the whole at-will employment model.

FTA: The network said on Thursday that "after 10 years, we have decided to part ways with Pat Buchanan. We wish him well."

Or in plain-spoken English, "Good luck over at Fox News, and don't let the door smack you on the ass on your way out."

bye for now you old racist coont
 
2012-02-17 01:34:41 PM
They decided to get rid of him before the senility kicked in even worse. They knew one of these shows, he would just snap and be the one to start yelling NIG***, NIG***, NIG***!!!

Then Fox would have pointed and said, yep, look at those liberal racists over there at MSNBC.

As Pat Buchanan goosesteps into the sunset.....

F*ck that racist old asshole.

Pat says the reason he was canned is because of... wait for it... homos and Jews (new window)

BTW, it's great to see a Republican who isn't afraid to kick it anti-Semitic old skool style. Conservatives berate the "liberal media" these days when back in Pat's day they called it the liberal Jew media or just "the Jew media and their Jew York Times".

These days all the Republican kids are hip to liking Jews again so that they all die in Israel for Jesus or something, but ol' Pat is still keeping it real. Shine on you crazy racist!
 
2012-02-17 01:40:45 PM
Took them too long.
 
2012-02-17 01:42:19 PM
Thank Heaven. Now that makes MSNBC slightly tolerable to watch.
 
2012-02-17 01:44:23 PM
FTFA: Critics called the book racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic, charges Buchanan denied.

Huh. I totally expected him to say "Yes, you're right. The book I wrote is very racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic."

I am amused by Republicans who support Israel unconditionally while blaming the Jews for everything that goes wrong in their lives.
 
2012-02-17 01:45:31 PM
"I know these blacklisters," he wrote. "They operate behind closed doors ... and off-the-record meetings.

You mean like your hero Darth Chaney and his secret off-the-record energy policy meetings?

I can't stand hypocrisy. Even if I was a conservative I don't think I could stand to listen to some of these blowhards.

From your link:

If my book is racist and anti-Semitic, how did Sean Hannity, Erin Burnett, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs, and Ralph Nader miss that?

There simply aren't words.

See, I liked Pat on MSNBC... sure he was a the crazy old racist aunt that lived in the attic, but at least they made sure that he never had access to the matches or gasoline.

Must've been the Eskimos that got him.

To be fair, if homos, Jews, black people, non-Christians, and Mexicans didn't exist there would be no reason to fire Pat Buchanan. Then again, he never would have managed to make a name for himself, either.

...and not a single fark was given that day.
 
2012-02-17 01:51:31 PM
He's been the same asshole all this time. I dunno why they let him on the air in the first place.
 
2012-02-17 01:52:16 PM
"I know these blacklisters," he wrote. "They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight."

...which explains all the goddamned right-wing trolls lately...

If Pat isn't racist, then why do racist sites name him so prominently?

/I feel dirty for going to Stormfront
//they changed their website radically, it use to have a link going directly to Pat Buchanan
///brb, I have to take a long hot shower after I vomit a few times
 
2012-02-17 01:54:19 PM
There goes the last interesting guy on the entire network. 95% of the time Pat is great, that other 5% is a doozie though.
 
2012-02-17 01:54:33 PM
Well, now that Pat Buchanan has been banned from MSNBC, 137 people will no longer be exposed to his hateful, racist rants on a daily basis.

Hey at least he stopped blaming black people.

*reads link*

The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?? A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it "exists to strengthen Black America's political voice," claimed that my book espouses a "white supremacist ideology." Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, "The End of White America."

goddamit...

The perfect Fark Independent response. Congratulations.

Pat Buchanan, the guy who has always loved to decry the liberal victim mentality, made sure to whine that he was being forced out by people who want to prevent us from hearing blah blah pity Pat the victim.
 
2012-02-17 02:00:52 PM
Hopefully he'll be joining Robert Novak in hell soon.

thurstonxhowell: The perfect Fark Independent response. Congratulations.


A bleat from the Fark Democratic Committee©.

But seriously: Do you watch MSNBC? You know, the viewership of that fine program can be measured in parsecs. Why, the entire universe of cable news blabber must be avidly followed by at least 3.213% of the population day-in and day-out. I think it's only exceeded by the teeming masses who watch the government access channels.

They are going to hire Chelsea Clinton instead.

MSNBC liked Buchanan because he was anti-Semitic, anti-Israel....most Dems and Libs are anti-Semite and anti-Israel these days (look how they pander to Muslims). Pat must have been saying stuff a little more truthful....

Because goodness knows any REAL AMERICAN puts Israel before America.

If my book is racist and anti-Semitic, how did Sean Hannity, Erin Burnett, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs, and Ralph Nader miss that? How did Charles Payne, African-American host on Fox radio, who has interviewed me three times, fail to detect its racism? How did Michael Medved miss its anti-Semitism?

Not immediately bending over when Israel asks us for money or to bomb someone ≠ "anti-Semite" or "anti-Israel"

Well, I'd expect Nader to notice. Though the fact that not a single one of them is a person of color (and unless I'm mistaken, no Jews, either) is telling.

// is Napolitano the real personal-liberty type who's always bucking the party's "look into your mind's desires" government fantasies?

What's worse is I've seen it. I usually remember stuff like that.
