Pat Buchanan's Book - "For this Nation to Survive" & Preserve White Dominance, "U.S. Must Keep Americans of European Descent from Becoming Minority"

Think Progress Full Article

OBM: If America is soooo free & wonderful...then what's wrong with being a minority Mr. Buchanan. Listen very closely....he is accidentally or arrogantly exposing the real truth about America, Neo Cons, and the Religious Right.

On the August 22 edition of NBC's Today, guest host and NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory interviewed MSNBC political analyst and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, providing Buchanan a forum to discuss his newly released book, State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America (Thomas Dunne Books). As the weblog Think Progress has noted, Buchanan's book is filled with controversial statements about the threat of immigration, including a claim that the United States must keep "Americans of European descent" from becoming the "minority" in order to "survive[]." But rather than challenging Buchanan on the contents of his book, Gregory allowed Buchanan to repeat his theories that President Bush's immigration policy "will lose the American Southwest to Mexico linguistically, ethnically, [and] culturally" and "that [the southwest] part of America is moving back to Mexico, from whom we took it in 1848." As Media Matters for America has documented, Today similarly hosted right-wing pundit Ann Coulter when her book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism (Crown Forum), was released on June 6, providing Coulter with a forum to defend her book's claim that she had "never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths" as much as the widows of victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

As Think Progress noted, in his book, Buchanan also criticized The Washington Times for "summarily fir[ing]" columnist Sam Francis, now deceased, for claiming that, in Buchanan's words, "Western civilization was superior and that only Europeans could have created it." In reference to Francis's claim that race is "the Great Taboo," Buchanan wrote that "to submit to the Great Taboo is like not telling one's doctor of a recurring pain that could kill you."

Buchanan also wrote the following:

  • "This [immigration] is an invasion, the greatest invasion in history." [p. 5]
  • "We are witnessing how nations perish. We are entered upon the final act of our civilization. The last scene is the deconstruction of the nations. The penultimate scene, now well underway, is the invasion unresisted." [p. 6]
  • "Chicano chauvinists and Mexican agents have made clear their intent to take back through demography and culture what their ancestors lost through war." [p. 12]
  • "[W]e are in the midst of a savage culture war in which traditionalist values have been losing ground for two generations." [p. 28]
  • "The first imperative is an immediate moratorium on all immigration, such as the one we imposed from 1924 to 1965. ... But even with a moratorium, success is not assured." [p. 250-251]

Gregory did not ask Buchanan about any of these statements.

Gray propaganda Is propaganda without any identifiable souce or author. In scale, these different types of propaganda can also be defined by the potential of true and correct information to compete with the propaganda. For example, opposition to white propaganda is often readily found and may slightly discredit the propaganda source. Opposition to gray propaganda, when revealed (often by an inside source), may create some level of public outcry. Opposition to black propaganda is often unavailable and may be dangerous to reveal, because public cognizance of black propaganda tactics and sources would undermine or backfire the very campaign the black propagandist supported.
