Pat Buchanan, Nazi

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Not traditional conservative, or paleo-conservative, or nativist, or even historical revisionist. Or any other such euphemism. No, there's only one word that suits Buchanan now, and that's Nazi.

As TNR's James Kirchick is reporting today:

On June 29th, MSNBC personality and three-time presidential candidate Pat Buchanan appeared on a neo-Nazi radio program to promote his new revisionist history of the Second World War, Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World. James Edwards is the host of the program "Political Cesspool," the stated mission of which is to "represent a philosophy that is pro-White."

In his book Buchanan argues that it was wrong for American to have intervened on the side of the allies in World War II, and that it would have been better if the Germans had won the war (and then acted as a bulwark against Bolshevism). (Not better for the English and the French and the other allies, not better for the Jews, not better for the other peoples being exterminated by the Nazis, but what does Buchanan care? He's a Nazi.)

And the show on which he appeared is not just pro-white but anti-Semitic and pro-Holocaust denial. Of course, that's right up Buchanan's alley. He's a Nazi.

Like Kirchick, I'm both not surprised and appalled that Buchanan is still a regular on MSNBC, still welcomed at the higher levels of the mainstream media. (MSNBC is NBC!) But I guess that tells us a lot about MSNBC, and the mainstream media generally.

As long as they keep putting Buchanan on air, they're providing a high-profile platform for a Nazi.

  • Buchanan, Lindbergh, and America First, all in one way, shape, or form, supported Hitler by not supporting the Second World War.

    Buchanan's book is a fallacious argument for avoiding all out war by appeasing the aggressor, in this case, Adolf Hitler.

    However, he supports his argument by ignoring Hitler's own words, deeds, and the deeds of his entourage. I mean, you have Reinhard Heydrich, Adolf Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler, Goebbels, Goering, etc., all buttressing Hitler's plan to eradicate the Jewish people from the Earth.

    Come on Pat, we're not THAT stupid. Just admit it, you're a Nazi.
