Millions of Americans and people all over the world celebrated the reelection of President Barack Obama to a second term. But his reelection has elicited different reactions from some white Americans, including those who want to secede from the country, particularly in America’s south who voted massively for Romney and couldn’t believe their counterparts up north who put Obama back in charge for another four more years. A white policeman, whose name tells you that he is a recent immigrant, or his parents emigrated to America, was arrested and dismissed from the police force for telling his colleagues that he would volunteer to kill President Obama.
However, the individual most discussed in the media is Pat Buchanan who said in a radio interview on November 7, a day after the 2012 election, that “White America Last Night,” with the reelection of Barack Obama to a second term. As reported in the dailycurrant.com,
Conservative political pundit Pat Buchanan stoked controversy today by claiming that Barack Obama’s reelection has ‘killed White America’.
The paleoconservative nativist is no stranger to racial controversy, having previously been accused of writing books with racist and anti-semitic undertones.
But the former Nixon advisor was more explicit on the G. Gordon Liddy Show this morning. When asked for his reaction to Obama’s victory, Buchanan replied brazenly:
“White America died last night. Obama’s reelection killed it. Our 200 plus year history as a Western nation is over. We’re a Socialist Latin American country now. Venezuela without the oil.”
Stunned by his clear racisim, Liddy tried to walk his guest back from the ledge:
“With what you just said right there…You seem to imply that white people are better than other people. That’s not really what you’re saying is it?”
“Of course that’s what I’m saying,” Buchanan replied “Isn’t it obvious? Anything worth doing on this Earth was done first by white people.”
“Who landed on the moon? White people. Who climbed Mount Everest? White people. Who invented the transistor? White people. Who invented paper? White people. Who discovered algebra? White people.”
“And don’t give me all this nonsense about Martin Luther King and civil rights and all that. Who do you think freed the slaves? Abraham Lincoln. A white guy!”
“But we’re not led by Lincoln anymore, we’re led by an affirmative-action mulatto who can’t physically understand how great America once was.”
“I cried last night G. I cried for hours. It’s over for all of us. The great White nation will never survive another 4 years of Obama’s leadership”
Liddy tried to reason with Buchanan, reminding him that he shares similar positions with the President on Afghanistan, Iraq, and relations with Russia:
“Of course I agree with half of what he does,” Buchanan answered, “He’s half white! That’s not the half I’m worried about.”
Buchanan served as a speechwriter in the Nixon White House. He was fired as an MSNBC analyst this year following the publication of a book many considered to be racist.
Some knowledgeable individuals have pointed out to Buchanan, who seems rather illiterate despite his education, that paper was invented by the Chinese while algebra was invented by the Egyptians who happened to be black at that time before the Arab conquest.
People should feel very sad for Buchanan. Since the MSNBC fired him for writing a book which was deemed anti-Semitic, though he has been making the same homophobic statements about Blacks, he has not been afforded a vehicle for his idiosyncratic verbiage, and become totally irrelevant. His recent outbursts were a way to seek the attention that he has been denied. The fact remains that Barack Obama was reelected to four more years, and no matter how much tears Pat Buchanan sheds, he would have to live with already knowing that a black has bested two whites in national elections, John McCain and Mitt Romney. What a sad commentary on his intelligence.
