My Opinion On Buchanan’s Sotomayor Smear

May 29, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Showing the world once again that he is an ignorant, racist, sexist pig, conservative pundit Pat Buchanan has accused President Obama of picking Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court as a part of the Affirmative Action program.

According to Buchanan, Obama only chose Sotomayor for Supreme Court because she is a Hispanic woman, and anyone who disagrees with him hates white men.

In fact, when the host of the show he was a guest on, Norah O’Donnell pointed out that maybe there were no white men as qualified as the four women chosen this time around, he blustered that she was a ‘bigot’ for suggesting such a thing, though he refused to answer when the second host, Lawrence O’Donnell, asked if he would be equally as outraged if four white men had been picked.

Apparently equality only goes one way, and the number of times that white men have been chosen over women candidates without apology in the past is irrelevant.

I would like to point out to Mr. Buchanan that most of us don’t actually have a bias against white men, nor are we trying to unfairly take away the many advantages they have enjoyed for so long. But when he comes out and makes a ridiculous (and idiotic) statement like this, it doesn’t actually look good for the conservative side, white male or not.

And MSNBC may want to take a moment and consider what it does to their network to be represented by ‘white men’ like him.

    Msnbc is not represented by Pat, they trot him out because he is such an extreme racist and right wing nut-job and this greatly helps their objectives, ie: making the republican arguments look like the bigoted baloney that they truly are. He is absolutely perfect for this role as he will spout the most extreme racist jargon without thinking, all while foaming at the mouth like a rabid klan member.. Keep him Msnbc he does your job for you.
