Commenters identified as “conservative” often get unfairly, and generally absurdly, labeled by their opponents as “fascists,” but Buchanan is a rare one who deserves it. Why is he still a “respectable” media presence?
UPDATE: Let me clarify: this post is just one of many examples of Buchanan’s general fascistic mentality, not “proof” by itself of that mentality. As for those who don’t even see any racism in this particular column, what about this:
This means white folks on Medicare or headed there will see benefits curtailed, while new arrivals from the Third World, whence almost all immigrants come, get taxpayer-subsidized health insurance. Any wonder why all those tea-party and town-hall protests seem to be made up of angry white folks?
What the McDonnell, Christie and Brown victories teach is that the GOP should stop listening to the Wall Street Journal and start listening to these forgotten Americans.
Why would, for example, black American citizens be less angry than white Americans about subsidizing illegal immigrants’ health insurance? “Angry white folks” are the “forgotten Americans?” Aren’t there any black, Hispanic, or Asian people on Medicare?
