NBC Brings Back Racist Pat Buchanan For Meet The Press This Sunday

NBC News shockingly has decided to invite fired racist commentator Pat Buchanan to appear on "Meet The Press."
NBC Brings Back Racist Pat Buchanan For Meet The Press This Sunday

Former MSNBC pundit Pat Buchanan, who was dumped by the network for his racist book is now coming back for an appearance on NBC's Meet The Press this Sunday.

NBC's Meet the Press this weekend will host Pat Buchanan, a homophobic and racist commentator. MSNBC parted ways with Buchanan in 2012 following blowback over his book Suicide of a Superpower, which claimed to document how diversity and immigration are ruining the country.

The Sunday show states on its website that it will interview Buchanan about "the return of populism" on the presidential campaign trail. Buchanan's brand of "populism" has long included bigotry against minorities, immigrants, and LGBT people during his career as a political candidate and commentator.

Buchanan has repeatedly defended Adolf Hitler and once labeled him "an individual of great courage." He claimed "in a way, both sides were right" during the Civil War. He declined to disavow the idea that minorities have inferior genes. He defended a school's ban on interracial dating. He opined that "this has been a country built, basically, by white folks" and falsely claimed only "white males" died at Gettysburg and Normandy. He once claimed "conservatives are the niggers of the Nixon administration" and urged President Nixon not to visit Martin Luther King Jr.'s widow because King was "one of the most divisive men in contemporary history."

We've always said that disgraceful conservative commentators never die and this is proof of that fact. No matter how odious, racist, hateful and ignorant a conservative commentator is on the airwaves or in print, they are always welcomed back by the networks with open arms.

Chuck Todd tweeted out why Pat is coming back.

Doesn't it make sense to have on a racist hatemonger to discuss the over the top lunacy of Donald Trump? How could anyone else analyze him properly.
