Pat Buchanan: No ‘Malice’ With Trump’s ‘The Blacks’ Remarks (Video)
April 15, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)–No surprise here. MSNBC’s resident bigot and champion of the oppressed group, white privileged males, doesn’t find anything wrong with Donald Trump’s recent remarks referring to African-Americans as “the blacks.” This is a man who regularly pens race-baiting diatribes on the right-wing rags, WorldNetDaily and Human Events, lamenting about too many Jews on the Supreme Court, and a man who heaps praise on Adolf Hitler, as an “individual of great courage.” Why MSNBC continues to ignore Pat Buchanan’s toxic racism is a mystery.
Donald Trump made headlines yesterday, when he bragged to a conservative radio host about his bona fides with “the blacks.”
“I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks. But unfortunately, it seems that, you know, the numbers you cite are very, very frightening numbers,” said Trump.
Trump found it “frightening” that a majority of African-American voters support President Obama.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s Jansing & Co., Buchanan said he found no “malice” in Trump’s remarks. Appearing alongside Buchanan, was MSNBC contributor Karen Hunter, who is African-American. During the discussion of Trump’s “the blacks” remarks, Buchanan suggested that Hunter was simply imagining Trump’s racial idiocy.
Hunter told Jansing, “As one of ‘the backs,’ I can tell you clearly…he [Trump] does not have a great relationship with ‘the blacks.”‘
It’s perfectly appropriate for a white guy to refer to African-Americans as “the blacks,” according to Buchannan’s reasoning.
“I don’t find any malice with that statement he said about the black folks. I mean, I’m a Catholic. And if he said I have a great relationship with the Catholics, I don’t think I would take great offense.” [...]
“Well I mean what do you think he meant? That he dislikes them ["the blacks"]? “Where’s the malice in what he said?”
“Maybe you’re hearing something that Donald Trump really didn’t say,” Buchanan said.
Lansing ended the segment, saying “it’s very clear” what Trump said.
