Buchanan: ‘Whites are Only Group You Can Discriminate Against in America’
Mediaite ^ | August 24, 2013 | Evan McMurry

Posted on 08/24/2013 11:39:11 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

Denouncing the use of race in college admissions on PBS’ The McLaughlin Group, former Richard Nixon speechwriter and GOP presidential candidate Pat Buchanan claimed that caucasians were the only group in America who could be legally discriminated against.

“It should be like the NFL: whoever’s the best player plays, and whoever does best academically should be advanced,” Buchanan said of diversity in collegiate acceptances. “What is wrong with that?”

“I think there’s an argument to be said that the greatest affirmative action program that there is in the country is being born white,” panelist Michelle Bernard argued. “There is a natural assumption when you are applying to institutions of higher education that you are excellent or you are more superb than others.”

“With due respect,” Buchanan responded, “whites are the only group that you can discriminate against legally in America now.”

“I think there’s an argument to be said that the greatest affirmative action program that there is in the country is being born white,”

Spoken like a true racist.

I suppose it's racism when half the black students "graduating" from NYC high schools (at a cost to taxpayers of almost $20,000 per student per year) can't read.

Whites are born knowing how to read, so that's unfair.

In college admissions, add Asians to the list.

Affirmative action is actually just official acknowledgment by the government, academia, and industry that blacks, Hispanics, and females are inferior to white & Asian men.

The Klan couldn’t be more offensive if they tried, the law backs today’s messengers.

This is one of the most disgusting hateful, racist statement I have ever read. This person is ignorant beyond comprehension.

Not too sure about Jews. Sharpton and Farrakhan sure do incite to kill us. Look what Sharpton did up in Harlem, caused the death of six Jews. Then those incidents in Brooklyn. We could also go into defacing Synagogs with swastikas.

"Buchanan responded, “whites are the only group that you can discriminate against "...well somebody finally managed to wake up Pat, because this has been going on for decades in hiring and promotion, so as to have more females and minorities. I'm told its a strike against 'meritocy"....you know promote those who don't actually achieve...then wonder why jobs disappear...

...former Richard Nixon speechwriter and GOP presidential candidate Pat Buchanan...

Buchanan was also a speech writer for President Reagan.  Coming at least a decade later, one wonders why they felt it necessary to go clear back to Nixon for Buchanan credentials.

Actually, it's quite clear.  They wanted to tie him to the only president who resigned.

I don't agree with Buchanan on some things these days.  He should be introduced in as pleasing a manner as they would an inept far out Left Wing lunatic, like say Obama.

I think they way it works is that the msm’s brains get short circuited when there are two minority groups involved, but I definitely notice they back off of screaming anti-Semitism when the offender’s are black.

on the other hand if someone is white and Christian, for example mel Gibson, even making an alcohol induced anti-Semitic diatribe is a career killer.
I remember that marlon brando said that jewish producers run Hollywood (I think we can see that with our own eyes), and he was persecuted endlessly. I guess i’m just a little ticked that as a white, chistian male, I don’t get the luxury of all that protection.

No, he’s right. You are correct too, but those fall in line pretty much along cultural lines.

He raises the issue. It sure won’t get much play.

I would call it the liberal white power structure. I am running into fewer and fewer conservative types in charge of anything.

Indeed, the assumption is that they are handicapped. But so is a student who must compete with the children of Ivy league Alumnae who have attended select private schools. So is a football player from a small school where six-man football is what he must play.

Then too there was Germany telling Hollywood during the Thirties to ban Jewish producers and any Jew connected with Hollywood. Also, local golf coursed banned Jews in some areas. Then came WW2 and everything was then kosher.

if you watch, just for example, sports shows on espn or even nfl network, what you will notice is that there are almost zero white, Christian, non former althlete men.

there are white females, black females, black men, jewish men, and former althletes of any stripe. but you might find two white Christian men who were not former athletes.

so I know i’ll never be getting that gig.

ps, you’ll notice the same thing on espn.

pps have you noticed the country is now much more racially and religiously divided since our president has taken office.
good job

Hollywood does just fine, unless you are a Christian trying to make Christian movies.

Our greatest living directer and one of our finest actors, learned what happens to a beloved, leading Hollywood figure when the rumors broke about his plans to make a future movie about Jesus (pro), his life has been hell ever since.
