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.

There was briefly a thread in Breaking News entitled 'Buchanan Thread Deletion Rationale,' but clicking on it informed one that 'This thread has been deleted.'

Whine posts dumped into Breaking News generally don't last long here...

Seems like Prophets are not welcome in your home land.

Why do you consider Buchanan a prophet from, God?

The future will be what it will be, regardless of what I do or think.

Following your line of logic, after December 7th,1941 we would all be eating Sushi and speaking Japanese. We DID something about that little problem.

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.

So, then, why is Europe no more significant than it is?

Let me amend my statement: 'only colorblind immigration laws, evenly enforced.' I don't think that this is such a radical position.

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.

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.

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.

Don't you think it is incredible how the PC virus has even infected many Freepers? This is not the same Board it used to be back in '98 and '99. Regarding the 3rd world takeover of the paraphrase the "Rev." Jackson "Just because a kitten may be born in an oven, it doesn't make it a biscuit".

So would Pat repeal the laws concerning Cuban immigration?

I hope not. Although I can tell you as a Miami resident, that relatively few Cubans are coming to this country at the present moment (the biggest wave came in the 1960s-70s).

I just discovered something kind of funny in the "breaking news" column.

"Buchanan thread deletion rationale"

When I clicked on it, I got that all-too-familiar page, "Thread has been deleted."

aint about race. It's about culture.

Culture is an expression of race.

Ireland was an illiterate, impoverished hellhole in 1845, and the women had tons of babies. Only in the past tne years has the economy began to catch up. Learn some history and stop reading Chronicles.

Did it ever occur to you that your grandkids might marry an Asian or Latin?

There is always that possibility but the chances of that are nil to none. That is their decision - not mine.
