Racist Screed Is Flying Off the Shelves
By Alexander Zaitchik, Intelligence Report. Posted October 9, 2006.

Pat Buchanan's latest book is a white nationalist rant -- but that hasn't stopped it from climbing the best-seller charts.

Since the start of his latest book tour, Patrick Buchanan has appeared on just about every major television and cable network in the country, often more than once. He's been on NBC's "Today" show, the three most watched news programs on FOX, CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," and countless radio programs. During one four-day period in late August, the author was welcomed on no less than five NBC-affiliated programs. Together, these appearances have made Buchanan's new book, State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America, a runaway bestseller.

The three-time presidential candidate is no stranger to the major media, being personally acquainted with many of those who interviewed him. A veteran columnist with the Creators Syndicate and an analyst for MSNBC, Buchanan was a founding member of three prime-time network or cable channel talk shows and has written for many of the nation's major newspapers and magazines. That might explain the kid-gloves treatment he got from virtually all his interviewers, most of whom did not seem to have read or understood the book they were helping to publicize.

In fact, the book reflects racial views that have now veered to the extreme. White America is changing color, Buchanan argues -- "one of the greatest tragedies in human history." The Mexican government is involved in a plot to take over the Southwestern United States, and parts of this country already look like the "Third World." The segregated South wasn't all bad "culturally" -- blacks and whites were united, after all. America, despite what its founders wrote, was a nation formed not on the basis of creed but rather a homogenous ethnic culture. To put it plainly, State of Emergency is a white nationalist tract. The thesis is that America must retain a white majority to survive as a nation. It is rooted in a blood-and-soil nationalism more blood than soil. The echoes of Nazi ideology are clear and chilling. As Buchanan helpfully explained to John King, who was interviewing him in one of his several CNN appearances: "We gotta get into race and ethnic questions."

State of Emergency unapologetically reflects Buchanan's insistence on the centrality of race to the United States and its culture. "This idea of America as a creedal nation bound together not by 'blood or birth or soil' but by 'ideals' that must be taught and learned ... is demonstrably false," Buchanan writes in the book.

Simply put, America is not a nation of ideas. It is a nation of people -- white people. Buchanan is especially overt in making this case when he endorses the view of his late mentor and editor Sam Francis, that American and European civilizations could never have been created without the "genetic endowments" of whites. He goes on to describe discussions of race as "the Great Taboo"; to ignore the role of race, he adds, is "like not telling one's doctor of a recurring pain that could kill you."

None of this seems to bother Buchanan's cheerleaders.

"Congratulations on the response to your book," said Lou Dobbs, the CNN anchorman who has made a profession of attacking illegal immigration in story after story after story, as he introduced his old CNN colleague. Dobbs then offered up his own view that President Bush was carrying on an "outright war" against middle-class Americans by allowing illegal immigration. Wrapping up the interview, Dobbs concluded: "The book is State of Emergency. It's No. 3 on the best-selling list. ... I'm going to repeat it one more time. The book is State of Emergency. Pat Buchanan, always good to talk to you. ... [Y]ou've got a lot of readers, so keep it rolling."

Dobbs isn't the only one helping Buchanan keep his book rolling.

James Edwards, a former volunteer in Buchanan's 2000 presidential campaign and current host of the Memphis AM radio show "The Political Cesspool," did his part, too. But this show was no mainstream broadcast. It has featured an array of past and present Klansmen and neo-Nazis, a veritable "Who's Who" of the radical right. In an exultant E-mail sent out by the radio show after Buchanan was featured, long-time white supremacist Winston Smith celebrated.

"Don't ever let anyone tell you that this broadcast doesn't matter, my friends," he wrote, "because when the likes of Pat Buchanan agrees to be on your program, he does so only after his people have researched the program and decided it's in their interest."

State of Emergency is not the first book to reflect Buchanan's racialist philosophy. In 2002, Buchanan's The Death of the West warned white Christendom against a looming demographic tipping point. (The book's message so energized former Klan leader David Duke that Duke fantasized on his own radio show last year about winning the presidency with Buchanan as his running mate.) It was in that book -- edited by Francis, chief ideologue of the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens -- that Buchanan first began using the explicit language of white nationalism. In his footnotes to The Death of the West, the former Nixon speechwriter even cited the late William Pierce, author of the race-war novel The Turner Diaries (the blueprint for the Oklahoma City bombing) and the founder of America's then-leading neo-Nazi group, to back up his own arguments.

Once again, to make his case in State of Emergency, Buchanan relies on a trove of extreme-right sources. His urgent call for thwarting the "invasion" of non-European immigrants leans heavily on material written by hate group members or postings on hate sites, with citations to nearly every sector of the hate movement, from neo-Nazis to neo-Confederates. He cites the work of white supremacist James Lubinskas; Edward Rubinstein, of the white nationalist think tank National Policy Institute; Clyde Wilson, a board member of the racist and secessionist League of the South; and Wayne Lutton, a veteran immigrant- and gay-hater. Buchanan also quotes Lutton's anti-immigrant hate journal The Social Contract.

Buchanan is equally schooled in hate from abroad, mentioning work of British white supremacist Derek Turner published in the American hate journal The Occidental Quarterly, which argues "the civilization and free governments that whites have created" will collapse as they become a minority. And Buchanan knows the oldies-but-goodies, quoting English politician Enoch Powell approvingly at the beginning of his final chapter. Powell was dumped by the Tory leadership in 1968 for claiming that non-white immigration would cause "rivers of blood" to flow in Britain; he has been a white nationalist icon ever since. (In the book, Buchanan claims Powell was essentially correct in his analysis of the problem, but that his "Rivers of Blood" speech was taken out of its original context and distorted.)

Buchanan is especially enamored of his deceased friend Sam Francis, the white supremacist who was fired in 1995 by The Washington Times for breaking the "race taboo" and went on to a 10-year career editing the Citizens Informer, a bimonthly newsletter put out by the Council of Conservative Citizens, which grew out of the segregationist White Citizens Councils of the 1950s and '60s. Far more than Buchanan's friend and editor, Francis was his mentor. Buchanan knows Francis' racist oeuvre inside and out, citing some seven Francis pieces. Buchanan's basic argument in State of Emergency -- America should be a white country and dark-skinned immigrants threaten it -- was made by Francis for years.

Now, through his old friend Buchanan, Francis continues to be heard from beyond the grave.

Patrick Buchanan: In His Own Words

Excerpts from State of Emergency, The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America:

    "Our ancestors were not paralyzed by guilt. Confident in their culture and civilization, they believed in their superiority over what Kipling had called the 'lesser breeds without the law.'"

    "Was not Western civilization vastly superior to the indigenous civilizations it encountered and crushed, from the Aztecs and Incas in the Americas to the Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist civilizations from Africa to the Far East?"

    "Against the will of the vast majority of Americans, America is being transformed ... we are witness to one of the greatest tragedies in human history."

    "Though the South remained segregated [before the Civil Rights movement], culturally, we were one."

    "California is becoming -- indeed, has become -- a Third World state."

    "Thus the world's finest five-star hotel, the United States of America, becomes the flophouse for the planet."

    "Since Americans of European descent -- unlike Germans -- are not into sackcloth-and-ashes, but take immense pride in their ancestor's achievements and bridle at reverse discrimination, it is hard to see a happy future of peace and reconciliation [if white guilt continues]."

    "This idea of America as a creedal nation bound together not by 'blood or birth or soil' but by 'ideals' that must be taught and learned ... is demonstrably false."

    "America faces an existential crisis. If we do not get control of our borders, by 2050 Americans of European descent will be a minority in the nation their ancestors created and built."

    "A new border war has begun with the first signs of an 'intifada' to retake control of the Southwest."

It's both humorus and painful watching extremist trying to distill "facts" out of half-truths and shoddy statistics.

quote:
White America is changing color, Buchanan argues -- "one of the greatest tragedies in human history."

Roll Eyes I'll give that one a "questionable", simply because I do believe in diversity, and in order to have diversity there needs to be a diverse population of races. I don't wish to see any ethnic group or race dwindle, but white Americans aren't going anywhere soon.

quote:
The Mexican government is involved in a plot to take over the Southwestern United States...


Exaggerated, though with elements of truth, methinks. Yes, the Mexican government does turn a blind eye to their citizens fleeing into our borders, and on occassions even appear to encourage it. However, I wouldn't go so far as to call it an organized conspiracy with the clear goal of replacing white Americans.

quote:
...and parts of this country already look like the "Third World."


Another exaggeration with elements of truth. Sometimes I am still shocked to go into a neighborhood and see ankle-high trash blowing about, with corn and goats in a front urban lawn. Seriously, this exists in some parts of Los Angeles. Yet, (as far as I know, as of yet), there is running water, the sewage systems work, no one is dying of starvation, and contagious disease isn't whipping out large chunks of the population (yet?).

quote:
The segregated South wasn't all bad "culturally" -- blacks and whites were united, after all.

Eek nono bs laugh
"What is 'bullshit post of the year', Alex?" DING DING DING! Yeah, because being relegated to a second class citizen, denied basic human rights, humiliated, disenfranchised, impoverished, and assaulted or murdered at whim really fostered unity between the races. Did he actually write this shit with a straight face?


quote:
...American and European civilizations could never have been created without the "genetic endowments" of whites.


nono RACE = CULTURE
The development of European societies (indeed, any societies) owe a large debt to physical environment and climate than anything else. Most of the other fun stuff of culture just follows climatic/environmental adaptations.

quote:
...to ignore the role of race, he adds, is "like not telling one's doctor of a recurring pain that could kill you."


"Oh doc, I've been having the worst pain in the ass ever. It is recurrent, and involves repeated genocides and mass wars. Got any cream I can use?"

quote:
"the civilization and free governments that whites have created" will collapse as they become a minority.


Some element of truth, though it's more cultural and religious collapse rather than an ethnic one. If the Muslim population of Europe continues to increase, de facto Islamic law will continue to spread. One merely has to look at cities like Malmo (Sweden), and parts of Frannce, where Muslim majority populations have establised Sharia as the de fact law of the communities. There are even campaign for the UK and France to officially recognize a "sual law" system in Muslim majority communities.

quote:

"Our ancestors were not paralyzed by guilt. Confident in their culture and civilization, they believed in their superiority over what Kipling had called the 'lesser breeds without the law.'"


They believed, eh? Well, the obvious retort to that is these supposed murderous usurpers of Westerndom believe in their own ethnic and cultural superiority, thus the supposed genocide of whites is perfectly justified. Roll Eyes
Amazing, how racist can see this as a perfectly legitimate claim for their side, yet it is a sign of barbarism in anyone else.

quote:
"Was not Western civilization vastly superior to the indigenous civilizations it encountered and crushed, from the Aztecs and Incas in the Americas to the Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist civilizations from Africa to the Far East?"


No, it was not in any ultimate sense. Objectively, Europeans may have had better technology than many of the other races, cultures, and societies they came into contact with, but that was only within the last few centuries of contact. If Buchanan actually bothered to crack open an history text he would see that Europeans often encountered East Asian, Muslim, and West African societies that were technologically equivalent or even advanced to them. Judging something to be "better" or "superior" in cultural or social terms is ultimately pointless, as these judgements are subjective.

Interesting, how a millenia and a half of history evaporates in a few hundred years.

quote:
"Though the South remained segregated [before the Civil Rights movement], culturally, we were one."


Sure we were! There was Ma, Pa, Junior, and little Sally--with negro Toby hanging from a nearby tree. Wasn't this unity grand!

The one thing that continues to stand out in white "nationalism" philosophy is the idea of "might makes right", yet it's a dangerous position to take; you're not always going to have the might and then what? Will they go quietly? I can't count the number of times I've heard those stormfront idiots justify genocide of the Native Americans on the basis that the Europeans were "stronger" and the Natives "weak". YET, the whole so-called white nationalism movement is founded on the principle that whites are being whipped out. Are we to take that to mean, then, that whites are somehow intrinsically "weak" and their supposed demise is thus justified? Funny: there is the possibility of whites declining dramatically, but it won't be through violence or physical replacement; they're merely not reproducing at replacement levels. A more cynical person would suggest that a race that can't even manage to merely fuck itself into continuation is a suicidal race, and thus deserve to be bred out. Of course, I am not a cynical person.

quote:
"America faces an existential crisis. If we do not get control of our borders, by 2050 Americans of European descent will be a minority in the nation their ancestors created and built."


Ah, cheer up, Whitey. Look on the bright side--by 2050 you'll just be a minority; you won't be practically exterminated on the continent you had occupied for millenia. ther
This reflects the general mindset of the White population right now. They're panicking because they know they're becoming a minority as their population growth has slowed and Hispanics are immigrating into the US in the masses.

White people ought to be glad they won't end up like North Amerindians, there only 4.5 million Native Americans in North America today when there used to be somewhere around 100 million before the Europeans. Now the largest group of Native Americans are in South America (both pure Native and the Mestizos).
Pat Buchanan is a vile man.

He give me a severe case of the 'creepy-crawlies'.

He has always made me feel like I needed to protect our children.

or bash him in the mouth.

PEACE

Have yall noticed that Pat Buchanan can be seen almost daily on political talk shows loudly opposing the Bush administration? He has a seductive quality that might make the masses think he's a plain dealer, a truth speaker to power, and almost liberal. What's up with that?

I've seen him on HardBall, Scarbrough Country, and every other show mentioned in other posts.

What's in it for him to be seen in opposition to the christian right?

Pat Buchanan is most certainly not a liberal. He is Paleoconservative, which is why he is in opposition to some Neocon goals and ideas. Paleocons are opposed to Neocons but have equally appalling ideas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Buchanan

quote:
Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three American presidents: Nixon, Ford and Reagan. He was an original host on CNN's Crossfire. He also co-founded The American Conservative magazine and launched The American Cause, a paleoconservative foundation.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleoconservative

quote:
Paleoconservatives question the supposition that European culture and mores can ever be transplanted or even forced upon non-white cultures, due to separate cultural heritages. As a result, paleocons are most distinctive in their emphatic opposition to open immigration by non-Europeans

-------------------------------------------------------

On some issues, many paleocons are hard to distinguish from others on the conservative spectrum. For example, they tend to oppose abortion on demand and gay marriage, while supporting capital punishment, handgun ownership and an original intent reading of the U.S. Constitution. On the other hand, paleocons are often more sympathetic to environmental protection, animal welfare, and anti-consumerism than others on the American right.

-------------------------------------------------------

Many paleoconservatives also identify themselves as "classical conservatives" and trace their philosophy to the Old Right Republicans of the interwar period who successfully kept America out of the League of Nations, successfully reduced immigration with the passage of the Immigration Act of 1924; opposed Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, the Immigration Act of 1965 and Civil Rights laws of the 1960's.

Paleoconservatives are most easily distinguishable from other conservatives in their emphatic opposition to open immigration, their strong opposition to affirmative action, and their general disapproval of U.S. intervention overseas.

Most paleos are concerned with the "culture-eroding" effects of popular culture. Economic issues are not high on their agenda, and in this they are divided. Many reject the ideology of free trade and laissez-faire economics, arguing that it leads to the deterioration of America's industrial base. Other paleos, however, support laissez-faire economic policies articulated by classical liberals such as Frédéric Bastiat in the nineteenth century.

-------------------------------------------------------

In America, the Southern Agrarians, Charles Lindbergh, Albert Jay Nock, Garet Garrett, Robert R. McCormick, Felix Morley, and Russell Kirk, among others, articulated positions that have proved influential among contemporary paleoconservatives.


That's right, Charles Lindbergh the White Supremacist and Nazi sympathizer.

quote:
Some paleos enthusiastically embrace the extreme decentralizing tenets of the Anti-Federalists, such as John Dickinson and George Mason. The southern conservative thread of paleoconservatism embodying the statesmanship of nineteenth-century figures such as John Randolph of Roanoke, John Taylor of Caroline and John C. Calhoun has proven influential as well, and has found a modern expositor in the late Mel Bradford


Southern Anti-Federalism is a euphamism for Confederalism.....

The Confederacy was a brainchild of John C. Calhoun:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C._Calhoun

Ideologies linked to Paleconservatism are States' rights Neo-Confederates, White Nativists and Isolationists.....
Thanks EP! for the good info.

I knew Pat Buchanan was ultra conservative, but when I see him on talk shows, this aspect of him is somehow minimized and show hosts seem quite enamoured of him.

I am ashamed to admit i had never heard the term Paleoconservatives although I am interested in american political history. 19 and particularly in the whole "southern strategy" thing of late.

Neos and Paleos, huh? the combinations and permutations never cease.

Wow...

Wonder where Chris Matthews falls?
My summation/translation of the book's theme...

"Be very afraid fellow White people, the non-White people we have been oppressing and exploiting internationally and intranationally are about to be the majority within this country's borders. They may do to us what we have done, and continue to do to them. It may be payback time."

^5 to Oshun.

Now that is a summary for ya! lol
Well, here's a relates story:

This week, the Billboard albums chart's top five is
packed with nothing but new releases, with Bakersfield, CA Pop duo Prussian Blue shocking
the nation by taking ..4 after selling 91, 000 copies
of "End of A Black World" its first week out. The album is also serving as the soundtrack to a remake of one of the most controversial movies in U.S. history "Birth Of A Nation".

"End of A Black World" is the third and most successful album for 12 and 13 year old Lamb and Lynx, who have recently relocated to a private compound in Salt Lake City, Utah after their last album gained them national attention and death threats. The girls were lost, especially in December of 2005 when their father was shot twice by an AME Minister. However, their father survived and their career was revived by what seems to be an unfathomable paradigm shift in American values.

"It really breaks my heart to see those two girls
spewing out that kind of garbage, " said Ted Shaw, civil rights advocate and president of the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund.

"This is bullshit. Right now I am more so shocked that
an album advocating the extermination of the black race could be so widely received by America, " continued Shaw, who plans to protest the girls' album and call for black artists to boycott Billboard.

Jessie Jackson of The Rainbow PUSH Coalition gave the
following statement, "White America has spoken. Billboard has spoken. This is only the beginning."

The beginning is just what Lynx and Lamb, who have
been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April, are hoping for. "We hope to bring about change in our people, " said Lamb. "We hope that our
album and Birth Of A Nation will show our people
exactly what needs to be done to make this country safe and white."

When asked about their inspiration for their latest
efforts, Lynx gave this response. "I saw white people hating white people. I was afraid that America wanted to be black, " said Lynx. "I saw that funny nigger's
show where he made a mockery of the KKK and white people were laughing. This broke my heart."

Lynx was speaking of Actor/Comedian Dave Chapelle and
his comic sketch depicting a blind, African American, Ku Klux Klan leader who was unaware that he was not white. Dave Chapelle is also believed to be the
inspiration of their single, "Funny Nigger, " which
describes the gruesome fate of blacks who taunt whites. Dave Chapelle was not available for comment.

Prussian Blue appear to have gone from one of
America's dirty little secrets to Pop princesses overnight. The group is now fielding offers from major record labels such as MGM and Geffen. This may be only the beginning.

Track Listing for "End Of A Black World"
1) Dawn of A New White World
2) Birth Of A Nation
3) Purest Soul
4) Tainted Blood
5) Affirmative Blaction
6) Reggin & Ekik
7) The Cleansing (interlude)
8) Short Drop and A Quick Stop

11) Funny Rich Nigger
12) Crack Babies
13) Nigger Lovers
14) No Darkie In Me
15) End Of A Black World

Thanks for posting this, HB... I like the way UN went point-by-point. I'll do mine:

quote:
White America is changing color, Buchanan argues -- "one of the greatest tragedies in human history."
____________________________________________________
...I don't wish to see any ethnic group or race dwindle, but white Americans aren't going anywhere soon.

Very important point, for a number of reasons. A lot of the hysteria and halluejia's about America's changing demographics seemed to spurred on by 2050 projections which a lot of folks have misconstrued the reported stats where Whites won't be a (dominant) majority flipping it, conflating it into Hispanics will be in the numerical majority.

Off the top of my head, those 2050 figures still show Whites as either a majority at, at least, 51% of the US population if not a 49% commanding plurality.

Beyond the numbers... We know who will still have an overpredominant portion "The Power" and that's what this is all about.

All one needs to do is look at how Whites still dominate in high ranking management and decision-making positions in the private and public sector. I would be interested in demographic projections for WEALTH & POWER by race. What would that be in 2050? and immediately beyond?

quote:
"...and parts of this country already look like the "Third World."

I just want to know what America "looked like" pre-Civil Rights when there was 40% + Black povery, etc.

Sorry... I can't get with that White Perspective. Holla at me when you're being genuine and universal in outlook.

"The segregated South wasn't all bad "culturally" -- blacks and whites were united, after all."

Did he actually write this shit with a straight face?


Though I shouldn't even bother laughing... I mean, commenting on this remark from Buchanan... I do have to tell you UN: HE WAS BEING SERIOUS.

At least that's what I get out of it. I mean, it's not the first time he rationalized... I mean, happened to say something like that.

This is a theme he upchucked - with some half-truths to it - when he wrote a piece about the race riots in France. It's the old "Our Niggras Are Happy Here" segregationists rationale. Now, instead of them damn yankee Northerners who came stirring up that trouble called CHANGE and made them "niggras" want some Civil Rights, it's them damn Mex-cans trying to do CHANGE from the south.

quote:
  • American and European civilizations could never have been created without the "genetic endowments" of whites.

  • "the civilization and free governments that whites have created" will collapse as they become a minority.


  • Straight WHITE SUPREMACY. The logic flows: America is damned/ruined without observing the Abe Lincoln principle:

    The Preference and Placement of Whites in a SUPERIOR social position in society.


    The article was right. These are some rather explicit WHITE SUPREMACY themed statements.

    I just got back from checking out stormfront.org and their celebration of Columbus "discovering" America (yeah they still believe that bs). Granted, I wasn't going to be surprised of their blissful ignorance, but because of those morons being proud of their racism, I can hardly wait for POC to be the majority pop. of the US.
    When people hate with such passion and use the most incindiary weaponry against people, that's not superiority, in my book; that's insanity on a mass scale. Superiority would be: strip naked, let allllllll that hair grow, take off the pounds of makeup, the toupees, stand before all the other colors of the world and let us determine your so-called superiority, if we don't all die from laughing.

    Guess what, I was peeling potatoes the other day, some red, some brown, some white skinned. When finished, they were allllllll still potatoes.

    I really suggest you take some Sex Education classes from people who know where parts go and get off the racism and superiority kick. If one doesn't live to the age of Methusla, there's no superiority of any kind in my book.

    Each of us, all 6 billion, are nothing but individuals, one-on-one. Some just more insane than others.
