BUCHANAN DECLARES: DEATH OF THE WEST

BUCHANAN DECLARES: DEATH OF THE WEST

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.

Can you expound on this thought and give us some ideas about "white-skin privelege" or perhaps slavery reparations?

I don't know what you mean by 'white-skin privilege' but slavery reparations are as racist as anything else on this thread: Payment by those who did no harm to those who suffered no harm because of a long ago harm to those who will not be compensated by those who did the actual harm. And all of this is done on the basis of race.

Unfortunately Buchanan's picture is factual.

Factual as it may be...it will not resonate with the majority of Americans because of its racist sounding beat.

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

Like the market for books on imminent economic collapse and the Rapture.

In fact, its the same audience that thinks these books are "timely."

They never are.

The first, and most important thing that MUST be done is to repeal the Amendment that gives automatic citizenship to any baby born on US soil. It give an automatic free ride to the parents, who are usually illegal. This amendment was passed following the Civil War, in an attempt at giving freed slaves a chance for citizenship. Like many, many laws, this one is outdated and irrelevant now. It needs to go.

I'm no Buchanan booster in many things, but where does this racist angle come from? I just don't see it. It's not racism that is the motivator, it is the culture war that he's on about. His running mate was a black woman, if I remember correctly.Has he really said something like "too many brown people"? That would indeed be racist.

The Mexicans were against our attack on Afghanistan....The illegal immigrants reap the benefits of our country, but are not required to register for the draft...

Again, I don't know much about the Mexicans in Overland Park or California. I do know many in Mexico, however, and the general consensus was that the US had the right to get Bin Laden, but should not extend the war any further. As far as the Mexican government is concerned, lets us remember that Mexico has been a largely neutral country since the Revolution, although they did commit a small fighter squadron in WWII that wasn't too successful.

Putting Pat down as a racist is missing the point. Even Clinton said something to the effect that the majority of the US will be Hispanic or spanish-speaking sometime not too far in the future.

His comments on Chinese and Islamic expansionism, Russia's contraction, etc., are indisptutable.

In the excerpts above - I have not read the book - I note nothing that is "racist". Please elaborate.

BTW, I'm one of the "white" European-Americans who left California because of what it is becoming. Enforce immigration laws? Who are you trying to kid? The immigration laws are purposely not enforced.

So because people believe (incorrectly) that discussing historical facts, statistical facts and demographic facts is "racist," Buchanan and others should not even bother to make an argument against unrestricted immigration?

That's absurd.

"I am sure that the majority of Americans would agree with his "pronouncements on immigration"...

I believe he was/is viewed as a threat by the left for trying to cut off their voter base. 9 to 11 million illegals who probablly are recruited to vote democrat with promises of money and jobs from federally funded give-away programs. Add to that the already large number who are "legal" citizens who would not be here under a more stringent immagration policy and you can see why the left and their media cronies have tried to make Pat a modern day Hitler.

They can try all they want. It won't work. Pat is trying to protect this Country, not tear it down.

THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE TODAY between the white Euro-peons who live in a stagnant society and the white Americans who live in the most dynamic society in the world. If the former aborted and birth controlled themselves into extinction, the only thing that would change would be our foreign policy.

Do you think that filling the US up with third world illiterates is going to build up America? This country became great and powerful because it was settled by Germans and English and Irish and other northern European people. Latin countries were conquered and settled by Spanards who mingled with the Indian populace. Do you see any difference in the progress of the countries?

This is almost exactly what the nativists of the first half of the 19th century said about the Irish, German, and other immigrants of their time, especially the Irish; that they were dirty and illiterate; that they weren't fit to live in a republic, because they were Catholic and therefore slaves to the Pope; that they were radical, violent socialists; and that barriers should be put up to further immigration. Move a little later in the 19th century and the same thing was being said about the influx of Italians and Eastern European Jews. Some of it was even true, but given a generation or two in the U.S., they were sure enough mainstream as the original Anglo-Saxon and Dutch settlers.

There is one thing though that isn't being done with new immigrants -- especially Hispanic. We have to insist that they learn English. Even with thriving foreign-language publishing in the U.S. (especially NYC), immigrants were expected to learn English and that's how they fit into American culture.

Outside of that, though, one can take what is written about the Mexicans and Chinese today, replace it with what was written about the Irish and Germans 150 years ago, and it would read almost exactly the same.

Whow, what an oxymoronic loaded remark. What qualifications would you set? Someone who never 'wrote a book', was 'never an advisor' to 3 presidents, never 'syndicated in the press' across the nation, never attended a 'world summit'?

Pat has made a good living on the open market. Since he graduated from college, the country has paid him well to speak, write and serve his country. The truth can't be stopped and Pat has more of it than any other 10 people coombined.

I don't think it's racism, when Mexico enforces it's immigration laws to protect it's language and culture and jobs for it's citizens, people will say that's a good thing. When Americans ---who are already the most racially diverse people believe American language, culture, and jobs should also be protected, it's seen as racism because American culture is supposed to be seen as evil now.

You don't get it. In multiculturalism, only American culture and language is a bad thing. It is supposed to be destroyed as quickly as possible ---it stands in the way of worldwide socialism. The pro unlimited immigration people never will suggest Mexico drop it's immigration law or call Fox a racist because he's still enforcing his.

Well, then, if the comment was the reason the thread was pulled and you saw it as an outrage. Then, you have now carried that same problem onto this thread discussion by bringing up the subject again, which will probably result in this thread being pulled as well.

I didn't repeat the slur, only characterized it, and accurately I might add. I could have cut and pasted his actual comments --- it’s still in my cash file – along with the name of the idiot who made the statement, but I intentionally did not do so. It is the kind of expression that has no place on FreeRepublic and definitely is not a part of Conservative thought. It was an expression of blind ignorance and gross intolerance that typifies leftist forums. The Gay and Pro-Abortion zealots regularly damn Catholics the same way. We sure don’t need that nonsense here.

Maybe they are different cultures, but the nativists have been saying the same thing, time and again, about every culture that started immigrating to the U.S. in large numbers. They haven't been right yet. Even if they are now, they've still been crying Wolfowitz for the past 150 years.

The then we lose statement was in reference to the fact that we must worry about being called names when debating a subject. Calling someone a name is the way to deflect attention from the subject to the author. It is a time tested way of those hating freedom, to stifle dissent and to keep others from joining in. It also will tend to make those not committed stay out of the fray, and polarizes everyone involved. The way to defeat the trick of being called names is to ignore it, and stay on point. Unless we do that, we lose every time.

I really am going to get it for saying this, but this would not be a great nation if it hadn't been settled by Europeons. Look around the world today and tell I am wrong. Once the white European races are marginalized the world has little to look forward to.

Apparently you don't take the Fouding Fathers bit about "citizen-politicians" very seriously. Would you be happier if he had been a corporate lobbyist? Or how about a rich daddys-boy who never had to work a day in his life? You need to wake up.

No, it is you who need to wake up. Buchanan's ideas are borrowed from the 19th century. We have already seen where such isolationism leads us (WWI, Pearl Harbor, etc), and it ain't pretty. Sad to say, the world does need a policeman. Our military is the only insulation that we have against tyranny. And that tyranny is now trying to come home to us. Building a wall around the country (as Buchanan would like to do) won't keep you safe. Nor will creating protectionist tariffs. Nor will covering your eyes and hoping that the bad guys will just leave us alone if we promise not to put troops overseas. We are past the point of no return as an economic power. It is our economic strength that causes us to be a threat to many uncivilized nations -- and Pat would like us to simply back out and ignore the problem. Sorry, no takers here.

As for qualifications for office, Buchanan is not fit to lead this country. He hasn't so much as held a political office -- not even dogcatcher. Bush has been twice governor of the State of Texas. Daddy couldn't buy that election for him. He did it on his own. So, scoff if you will, but at least Bush earned the presidency. Buchanan, by comparison, is an empty suit.

Exactly, and well written.

Pat is not a racist; he is, however, race-obsessed.

There is a strain of American which looks to blame somebody or something for their economic plight or "immorality."

The boogeyman inevitably turns out to be "them." And "them" are those even lower on the economic ladder.

Human nature does not change.

Let's have and enforce immigration laws that are colorblind.

Here's the problem. Suppose we introduce a law that requires new immigrants to have the equivalent of an American high school education. Although this standard is race-neutral, it would still be decried as "racist," since its impact would be to make a lot of people in third world nations like Mexico ineligible as immigrants.
