Asserting that he was "offended" by comments that Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean reportedly made during a speech at Georgetown University -- in which Dean reportedly said that the Democratic field "looks like America," while the Republican field, made up of white males, "looks like the 1950s and talks like the 1850s" -- Pat Buchanan said on the February 28 edition of Tucker: "Look, what did white males do? OK, they were the only guys signing the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, all the dead at Gettysburg, all the dead at Normandy." Buchanan then responded to radio host Bill Press by stating, "Why is it ... OK to mock ... backhand white -- no wonder you're losing white males," and also said, "I think you guys are self-hating white folks." His comments came after host Tucker Carlson asserted of Dean's remarks: "I must say, I'm not going to sit by a single more time and listen to someone slag on, quote, 'white men.' "Gee, Pat, could the reason for that be the fact that we didn't let women or black men fight at Gettysburg or Normandy because we thought they were inferior, and the reason for why only white males "sign(ed) the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence" was because we though women and black men were property? Then again, Buchanan is a person who wants to go back to that time and whines that white men have it so, so terribly bad because it's not like that anymore. That he said this is not surprising, nor is it a shock to see comments from Tucker "I Got My Ass Handed To Me by a Fake Newscaster" Carlson being his echo chamber.
This is also why it's so distressing that guys like Buchanan and Racist Ron Paul are against the Iraq occupation. They use their stances on it to pull in gullible young people, then fill their heads with the other gobbledygook they preach, and the people they brainwash just accept it all without question. And these people consider themselves informed, independent thinkers.
The great thinkers of ages past would simply keel over and die faced with that kind of illogical bullshit.
