Pat Buchanan wants to put hundreds of thousands of 'diversicrats' out of work.
Scores of thousands of bureaucrats academic, corporate, government are on watch, overseeing our economy, patrolling our society, monitoring our behavior.

I still have a Pat Buchanan yard sign from his Presidential bid.
It may come out of retirement.
He’s right and it has nothing to do with racism.
If a business doesn’t want to serve someone because of their race, another business will open that will serve exclusively that race. And likely a 3rd business will open that serves all who enter and put both racists out of business.
Buchanan thinks Christian shouldn’t have any legal protection.
The Left has people well trained to think so.
Unfortunately, this would raise claims that it would “encourage racial discrimination” ...
see for instance,
Reitman v. Mulkey 387 US 369 (1967) where the USSCt upheld the California state Supreme Court’s overturning of a voter referendum repealing the California legislature’s Rumford Fair Housing Law (Yes, another 5-4 vote but it is there).
Not saying it shouldn’t or can’t be done.
Only saying anyone trying this needs to be well prepared (legally) to deal with just how it may be done (and how it may best be defended against challenge).
Christians are more concerned about wholesale discrimination from government than piecemeal discrimination from private parties
It is the only thing they know how to do. They are not productive or constructive. They have no other skills that would allow them to earn a living.
The machine was built by the progressives and it has been destroying this country. They have their tentacles in every aspect of the work force, education and politics. It has destroyed this nation.
The section ruling on private industry was flatly unconstitutional. The Act had these elements added by Emmanuel Celler (D - N.Y.) after hearings during the negotiation. Republicans, though they were widely in support of the Act should have demanded this be taken out. It was blatantly an expansion of government illegaly into the private sphere, and short-sighted people that they were, they never imagined how the libs would abuse it.
Tolerance for me and not for thee is the secular leftist's creed.
“Does anyone really believe if Civil Rights laws were repealed we’d go back to black and white drinking fountains?”
No. And I’ll go one further - we’ll all live much more productive and satisfying lives together.
