Pat Buchanan Insults Two Religions In One Sentence!

The Wit And Wisdom Of This Man!!

Sometimes Pat Buchanan comes off like any other bigot: very stupid. There are those times, however, when he passes into absurdity. Case in Point: you don't compare an alleged Nazi prison guard to Jesus Christ. It's just not done. We all know that Pat is a pretty well-rounded bigot: gays, blacks, Hispanics and women - especially those who are considered for the Supreme Court. But when he champions Nazi prison guards, he's gone, baby, gone. His white supremacist tendencies put him in the league of David Duke and Hitler.

Belfast Times:

German prosecutors have formally charged a suspected Nazi death camp guard with 27,900 counts of being an accessory to murder. Eighty-nine-year-old John Demjanjuk was extradited from the US in May.[..] Demjanjuk says he was a Red Army soldier who spent the war as a Nazi prisoner and never hurt anyone.

Pat Buchanan rode on his white horse to Demjanjuk and the side of Justice:

John Demanjuk And The True Haters

On Good Friday, John Demjanjuk, 89 and gravely ill, was ordered deported to Germany to stand trial as an accessory to the murder of 29,000 Jews—at Sobibor camp in Poland.

Sound familiar? It should. It is a re-enactment of the 1986 extradition of John Demjanjuk to Israel to be tried for the murder of 870,000 Jews—at Treblinka camp in Poland.

How many men in the history of this country have been so relentlessly pursued and remorselessly persecuted?

...The spirit behind this un-American persecution has never been that of justice tempered by mercy. It is the same satanic brew of hate and revenge that drove another innocent Man up Calvary that first Good Friday 2,000 years ago.

Now is there anyone who thinks that Pat Buchanan would ever deal out justice with mercy? All around bigots just don't do that.

Crooks and Liars

The good thing about the attention Buchanan has brought on himself is that it may finally shine a spotlight on the persistent and malignant influence of white nationalism on our national discourse and our body politic. Looking as we are at pan-racial, multicultural future, our success is going to hinge on our abilities to find ways to break down the old racial barriers that were erected by white supremacists -- whose worldview was dominant in the USA for decades -- a century ago and more. And as Pat Buchanan has been demonstrating, they will only go kicking and screaming.

But what kind of flack is Buchanan going to get from both Jews and Christians? Probably none. That's the sad part.
