Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan made a statement Friday guaranteed to make liberal media members' heads spin.
During a discussion about Affirmative Action on PBS's McLaughlin Group, Buchanan said, "Whites are the only group that you can discriminate against legally in America now" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JOHN MCLAUGHLIN, HOST: Are you saying college admissions should be based on diversity?
ELEANOR CLIFT, NEWSWEEK/DAILY BEAST: Yeah, I mean, I think lots of factors go into diversity. I think race can be one of them, and I think the Supreme Court so far agrees with that.
MCLAUGHLIN: 67 percent opposed it, 28, youre in the minority. Only 28 percent are in favor of it.
PAT BUCHANAN: It should be based on excellence, John.
CLIFT: As long as the Supreme Court agrees with me, Im fine.
BUCHANAN: It should be like the NFL: whoevers the best player plays, and whoever does best academically should be advanced. What is wrong with that?
MICHELLE BERNARD: Heres a question I have. One of the things I always say because I think you can measure diversity in a lot of ways, but I think theres an argument to be said that the greatest Affirmative Action program that there is in the country is being born white. 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.
BUCHANAN: With due respect, whites are the only group that you can discriminate against legally in America now.....

I will further describe the only group of people can discriminate against is the, white, straight, Christian, male. Everyone else is in a “protected” group.
Without groups to speak up for white people and heterosexuals, they will forever be excluded at the “diversity” table.
Right now you can have art competitions based on sex (women artists only), sexuality (homosexual/transgendered artists only), skin color (black only), ethnicity (asian only, hispanic only), age (25 and under), etc. but there would be hell to pay if there was a “white only” or “heterosexual males only” competition.
Don’t forget Christians, Pat.
Try getting admitted to top universities with a 4.0 and an Asian last name.
Rural and poor whites are the least likely to be admitted to elite schools.
Umm, how about CHRISTIANS, Pat.
Yikes. The formatting looked good in Preview. Stuff happens.
So what about white high school graduates with 4.4 gpa that can’t get into a state college. Oh thats right ,they must pay for ancestral transgressions. Its perfectly “fair.” And isn’t that what life is about? Fairness?
You are so right, my brother.
I think they’ll live to regret that, don’t you?
