Drudge Report ^ | 01/02/2002 | Matt Drudge

Posted on 01/02/2002 7:00:39 AM PST by Pokey78



The New Year is just minutes old and now comes Pat Buchanan to warn: The Death of the West!

In his ultracontroversial book, which will be banned, blocked and burned in many quarters, brave Buchanan contends that the U.S. will be a Third World nation by the year 2050.

The BestSellingAuthorTVHostPresidentialCandidateColumnist predicts Europe will be inundated by an Islamic-Arab-African invasion and most First World nations, including Japan, will have begun slowly to vanish from the earth.

Buchanan is primed and ready for a media blitz behind DEATH OF THE WEST [ranked #492 on AMAZON's hourly sales chart Wednesday morning], set for release from DUNNE.

Buchanan will light the bonfire on NBC's TODAY show this Friday, according to a network source.

But the DRUDGE REPORT can once again bring you the first sneak.

Relying upon the most recent UN population studies, Buchanan declares:

• By 2050, only 10% of the world’s people will be of European descent. One third of Europe’s people will be over 60, and one-in-ten over 80. Involuntary euthanasia has already come to Europe.

• Between now and 2050, Asia, Africa, and Latin America will grow by three to four billion people -- 30 to 40 new Mexicos! -- as Europe will lose the equivalent of the entire population of Germany, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland.

• By 2050, 23 million Germans will have disappeared along with 16 million Italians and 30 million Russians.

• Russia will lose Siberia and the far east to China and be pushed out of the Caucuses and Central Asia, where Islamic populations are exploding while Russia’s is dying.

• Either Europe must effect a radical cutback in pensions and health care for seniors, or Europe must import scores of millions of Arabs and Africans to care for the elderly and pay the taxes to sustain their welfare states.

• The 4.2 million Palestinians in Israel and on the West Bank and Gaza will explode to 9 million by 2025, and 15 million by 2050, when Palestinians will outnumber Israel’s Jewish population two-to-one.

• America’s “Dual Containment” policy in the Persian Gulf seems unsustainable. In less than 25 years, Iraq will have 42 million people and Iran 94 million people, more than any European nation except Russia.

• The Islamic invasions of Spain and France in the eighth century, and of the Balkans and Central Europe from the 14th to the 17th centuries, will be reenacted in the lifetime of most of those now living. Islam has already surpassed Catholicism as the largest religion on earth.

• It is the Christian nations -- Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox -- that have begun to die. In a chapter titled, “Where Have All the Children Gone?” Buchanan explains why, and why it is unlikely the West can solve the demographic crisis before it leads to The Death of the West.

In his chapter La Reconquista, Buchanan contends that an invasion of the United States is taking place and that America now harbors a “nation within a nation.”

• There are 30 million foreign born in the U.S. today, and between 9 and 11 million illegal aliens, or as many undocumented aliens in the U.S. as there are people in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

• Mexico is exporting its poor and unemployed for U.S. taxpayers to employ and educate. Radical and militant Hispanics and Mexican leaders alike believe this will lead to the cultural and demographic recapture of the Southwest from America, reversing the results of The Mexican War.

• By supporting open borders, the GOP is committing suicide. First-time Hispanic voters chose Clinton 15-1 over Dole. Of the seven major immigration states -- Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, Texas and Florida -- Mr. Bush lost five, and perhaps six. Of the 10 states with the smallest share of immigrants, Bush won all 10.

• European-Americans are a minority in America’s most populous state, California, and by 2004, will be a minority in Texas.

• The political agenda of California Hispanics includes race welfare for illegal aliens, racial preferences, bilingual education, open borders, dual citizenship, Cinqo de Mayo as a California holiday, and, in one case, replacing a statue of an American hero of the Mexican War with the Aztec god Quetzacoatl.

• White Americans are fleeing California at the rate of 100,000 a year.

• MeCHA, the student organization that claims chapters on hundreds of campuses has a program that reads like a Mexican version of the agenda of the white-supremacist Aryan Nation.

• In 2001, an Office for Mexicans Abroad in Mexico was providing survival kits with everything from dried meat to anti-diarrhea pills to condoms to Mexicans setting off to break in to the United States .

• As of 2000, there were 8.4 million foreign born in California, as many foreign born as there are people in New Jersey, a primary cause of the state energy and schools crisis.

• Among Third World immigrants, poverty rates and incarceration rates are double and triple what they are among native-born Americans.

Shooting up the flares and waving the flag, Buchanan argues that the 1960s “counter-culture” has become America’s dominant culture, and the iconoclasts of that counter-culture are systematically demolishing America’s history and heritage.

• Under Political Correctness, America’s greatest heroes -- soldiers, explorers and statesmen from Columbus to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson -- are under savage attack as genocidal racists and exploiters of indigenous peoples.

• The history books of American public schools are being rewritten with the old heroes ignored or trashed and Western civilization disparaged and demeaned.

• When Mel Gibson’s film, “The Patriot,” came out in 2000, it was savagely attacked for presenting black Americans as fighting patriots in the Revolutionary War.

• With the assault on Confederate books, symbols, flags, heroes, and holidays almost complete, the attack is now proceeding against the Puritan fathers, soldiers who fought in The Mexican War, and, in New Jersey, even against the Declaration of Independence itself.

• In some school districts, Mark Twain, Flannery O’Connor, and any realistic portrayal of the America South, including Harper’ Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, are now forbidden.

• Even the great museums on America’s Mall, to introduce school children to the greatness and glory of America’s past, are being used to indoctrinate children in how wicked and evil our forefathers were.

In his chapter, “The De-Christianization of America,” Buchanan argues that the death of the Christian faith in Western countries is a primary cause of their dying populations. Whenever faith dies, the people die. A new atheistic civilization is arising, he argues, and is using its dominance of the culture and the courts to drive Christianity out of the temples of our civilization.

• Secular Humanism, widely mocked and disparaged, a few decades ago, is now the dominant faith of the nation’s cultural elites. The moral tenets of humanism are replacing those of Christianity in our public life.

• Even Christian churches are rewriting their hymnals to make them acceptable to the dominant culture.

• Anti-Catholic films and filthy and blasphemous anti-Christian art are the deliberate insults of a triumphant pagan and secularist faith.

The book's publication was delayed after September terror.

If the West dies where will Pat get parts for his Mercedes-Benz?

LOL! I have not heard Pat make a correct prediction in 2 years. The saddest thing is that he does make some good points about the foolishness of some of our policies, but no one takes him serious anymore because he goes off xenophobic rants.

Looks like it could be pretty interesting. Pat has some good ideas, but every time I start to like him he goes off the deep end with something crazy.

Maybe the thread is violating the rule prohibiting ads of Free Republic ....

That's exactly why I took off Drudge's link to Amazon. He gets a kickback for every book sold that uses his one of his Amazon links.

Wonderful! Himself is putting on his Ultramontange togs and trying to out-Spengler Spengler! Pat, I read Oswald Spengler's Untergang des Abendlandes, and you're no Oswald Spengler. Pat has become increasingly irrelevant and it seems that he senses it. As if in response, his writings have morphed from social commentary into Jeremiads that make Ayn Rand look saner every time he dips his quill in the inkwell.

Does it really matter if some(including you)think he sounds like a racist?

Yes, I think it matters because it will take all (of every race) Americans to force changes. Buchanan's racists "sounds" will be rejected by the majority of Americans; his ideas, his stats, and his passions will then come to not.

This thread was pulled without explanation a few minutes ago. Anyone know why?

Because the vast majority of the analysis in his book is racist?

I like Pat Buchanan. I disagree with his stance (since the 1992 campaign) about Living Wage, but I disagree with George W Bush on a few points too. The Liberals have spent the better part of the 90's trying to demonize him because they have no idea how answer his well thought out arguments. There is no doubt that Buchanan is brilliant, so Liberals had to label Pat as a racist. SO WHAT? Everyone who knows Pat, knows he's not a racist ... it has become evident to me that those who toss the label 'racist' around ... are, by and large , the racists in our society.

Why can't the admin moderator share this rule with the forum? Seriously, why can't you or they just come out and say it?

Don't matter to me, I won't be around in 2050

I won't be around in 2050 either but my grandkids will be. I want them to have something. Did you ever stop to think about that?

He is not a racist, he is an alarmist, out to make an alarming killing with an alarming book. But we will all benefit from looking at the points he dramatically raises. The book couldn't come at a better time.

I studied art in the 60s ...we read a book called "The End of Art"..It was all the rage

In the 1920s we had the end of war, in the 60s the end of poverty, and in the 80s the end of history. Stupid predictions never cease.

I'm sure that in the 1890s and early 1900s when most of our grandparents were heading here on 'Banana Boats' speaking strange languages and practicing different religions, some Victorian version of Buchanan was spouting the same nonsense. If I'm not mistaken, the percentage of 'foreign born' citizens was much higher then than now.

Xenophobia is always good for making a buck. There will always be a market for it.

Pat the future employee of the month at Fuddrukers must accept that if the Euro-peons want to eliminate themselves via abortion and excessive use of birth control, let them.

BTW: All of you population control people must accept the fact that the birth rate is FALLING throughout Latin America and other parts of the underdeveloped world. Nevertheless, they still haven't reach the negative population growth of the Euro-peons.

Don't forget the second part of my reply. Do you think the US should be any different than any other culture in history?
