Pat Buchanan: No Slur Was Intended Nor Made When Referring To ‘Your Boy’ Obama
MEDIAite ^ | August 3, 2011 | Matt Schneider

Posted on 08/03/2011 7:45:56 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

Just as one fire involving a MSNBC contributor and their description of President Obama is finally put out, might a new one be starting? Today on Morning Joe, Mark Halperin returned to the show after his suspension for calling Obama a “dick.”Yet moments after Halperin completed his analysis of the debt deal, it was Pat Buchanan’s turn to address his fresh controversy.

Last night we questioned the terminology used by Buchanan in a debate with Al Sharpton, and Buchanan didn’t waste any time attempting to set the record straight:

“Let me clarify something that happened last night on the Al Sharpton show, a very spirited discussion. I was asked who was the big losers in these battles, and the big winners. And I said one of the big losers, using boxing terminology, was ‘your boy’ and I meant the President of the United States. . . . This was taken – some folks took what I said as some kind of slur – none was meant, none was intended, none was delivered – for the record.”

It’s likely this will be all Buchanan says regarding the incident, and seems like a sufficient enough explanation. Discussing winners and losers, and how Obama was Sharpton’s “boy in the ring,” Buchanan’s potential offense (unlike Halperin’s) was in the heat of the moment, unintentional and probably requires a leap to make it truly offensive. Yet with Buchanan and Halperin as frequent Morning Joe guests, and the show’s loose format, it will be interesting to see if both men in the future refrain from even hinting at a name for Obama other than “President.”

Watch the clip from MSNBC below:

He’s not actually black, so what’s the problem? More of an Ivy League white Communist who uses blacks and Muslims as tools to achieve his political ends.

So wait. “Your boy” - bad. “Butt buddy” - ok.

Got it.

WTF would anyone engage in a debate with Sharpton? It's like wrestling a pig - you get filthy and the pig gets angry.

Let them suspend Pat for this nothing phrase, without Buchanan’s great performances/debating MNBC which is full of libs and spineless RINOs like Steele, is just a big a big circle-j....of agreement.

Oh, please. Al, Jessie, and others of their ilk would be out of business if they didn't continue to stir the pot looking for trouble. And when they're proved to be on wrong side of the issue (e.g., Tawana Brawley, the Duke Lacrosse team, etc.), they don't even have the civility to apologize for their stupidity. Al...Jesse...you've outlived your usefulness...get over it and get over yourselves.

Lol! Rush Limbaugh calls Obama a Man-Child every day (which if you think about is essentially a boy) and so far he hasn't gotten any heat for it, not that he would care if he did.

If being a Fiscal Conservative, aka "Tea Party" member is akin to an al queda terrorist, the "Your Boy" or "Your Butt Boy" is appropriate - slur intended!

Bingo! This should be the response given to anyone who cries racism when this phony is criticized! I love to ask liberals, and especially black liberals, if they would have voted for Zero if he looked white. I usually don’t get a straight answer. It is great fun to make their heads explode! Try it!

Au, contraire! They "worry" about "this" in order to AVOID discussing the problems in their "communities".

That's exactly what this is about - Sharpton pulled the race card in order to avoid having to defend the policies of 0bama.

And furthermore Mr Sharptongue, you and all your racebaiting black-caucus ilk are the white-democrat’s “boys”. Property and livestock of the DNC.

You are doing what the white-democrat klan could never do...keeping the blacks on the RAT-plantation.

Only one problem. Obama runs the country like a little boy.

No real experience in business, he has never run one. I doubt he has taken a economics course, but, how to get hand outs? How to shake down the system? He is a educated thug.

As a educated thug expect thug results. As a little boy mooch, mooching from the system, expect the system to be molded to that world.

Either way he is a little boy.

To the contrary, Jerry Rivers said Rush used the racist term. Said he had never heard anyone but a black referred to as a “man child.”

Two comments:

1. PB is a jerk regardless of what he said this time.
2. “Your Boy” is used ALL THE TIME amongst blacks to each other. Sometimes written as “Your Boi”. As in - “Hey Yo, it’s your Boi - wassup!”

So much ado about nothing I’m afraid.

Sorry, Pat, but you are plenty old enough to realize that it is insulting to use the term “boy” when speaking of or to a black man. I can defend Conservatism but not stupidity.

Obama is a consummate demagogue--truly a Hitler in Sepia tone. As for any suggestion of a racial slur, in Pat's comment, there should be no confusion there. Obama's non-White side is from East Africa, where the peoples are quite different than the West African folks who were brought to America. (Indeed, it is quite possible that Obama's ancestors were in the business of enslaving others, rather than being enslaved. It is my understanding that his father's tribe spoke the lingua franca of the Arab slave traders.)

But whether or not he is "more of an Ivy League white Communist," or not, depends on how one defines "Communist." He is certainly heavily influenced by Marxist and other Egalitarian Leftist thought; and as such is the enemy of all we hold sacred.

Thus does it really matter if a Conservative is accused of slurring him? He is trying to destroy our heritage!

It’s ok for black people to refer to white men as “white boy”. They do it all the time. So lets call a spade a spade.

Pat was wrong in saying "Your Boy".
He should have said: "Your 'Homie'."(1)
(1) Homie: Shortened version of homeboy, homeboy being your close friend: "Whassup homie"

Then there could be no controversy as it's a compliment. Pat's saying Sharpton and Obama are friends.

It appears Sharpton didn’t interpret it as a racial slur. A “white interloper” did and followed up on it later in the day.

“The way to answer these stupid charges is with ridicule or derision, NOT an apology or explanation”

Exactly.

Once you decide to “apologize”, you’ve lost.

The better response would be:
“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. If that offends you, well, tough...”

Only when the Euro-Americans start saying this more often, will we stop being “a nation of cowards” and make real progress towards addressing race-related issues in this country....

Just sayin’....

But they just couldn’t pass up a chance to attack Buchanan of course.
