MSNBC’s Buchanan Unhappy With So Many Jews on Supreme Court

May 14, 2010

(ChattahBox)— MSNBC’s resident race-baiter Pat Buchanan penned a strange diatribe on WorldNetDaily, the fevered swamp of birther conspiracy theories, ranting against the number of Jews on the Supreme Court. He is very unhappy with the historical choices of liberal Democrats, bypassing white Protestants and Catholics.

Buchanan asks the question: “Are liberals anti-WASP?” He points out that if Elena Kagan becomes a member of the U.S. Supreme Court, Jews would make up a third of the nation’s highest court. And that does not sit well with Buchanan:

“If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats’ idea of diversity?”

“But while leaders in the black community may be upset, the folks who look more like the real targets of liberal bias are white Protestants and Catholics, who still constitute well over half of the U.S. population,” he wrote.

“Not in living memory has a Democratic president nominated an Irish, Italian or Polish Catholic, though these ethnic communities once gave the party its greatest victories in the cities and states of the North. What happened to the party of the Daleys, Rizzos and Rostenkowskis? And not in nearly half a century has a Democratic president nominated a white Protestant or white Catholic man or woman.” […]

“If Kagan is confirmed, the Court will consist of three Jews and six Catholics (who represent not quite a fourth of the country), but not a single Protestant, though Protestants remain half the nation and our founding faith. If Kagan is confirmed, three of the four justices nominated by Democratic presidents will be from New York City: Kagan from the Upper West Side, Sotomayor from the Bronx, Ruth Bader Ginsburg from Brooklyn. Breyer is from San Francisco.”

Buchanan last weighed in on the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor, enraged that a white male was not chosen. Republicans “…pay the price of affirmative action when their sons and daughters are pushed aside to make room for the Sonia Sotomayors,” wrote Buchanan.

Why is Pat Buchanan a paid contributor on a major network?
