While discussing presidential candidate Herman Cain's assertion that the black community has been brainwashed into supporting Democrats, MSNBC's resident racist and bigot in chief, Pat Buchanan came to Cain's defense on Martin Bashir's show this Thursday.
BUCHANAN: John McCain got the same share of the African American vote as David Duke got for running for Governor of Louisiana. Anybody think John McCain is a racist or an ex-klansman? That's ridiculous.
I think the African American community has embraced Great Society liberalism which has proved devastating for the African American families.
Seventy one percent of African American kids are born out of wedlock. Half of them drop out of high school. I think the whole welfare state mentality, I think has been deeply devastating to all of America, especially including the African American community. And I admire Herman Cain for standing up and going against if you will the conventional wisdom and being a tough African American businessman who's succeeded in a tough world and I admire him in that regard.
BASHIR: But, Pat, brainwashed? That's a fairly strong term.
BUCHANAN: I think what he’s saying is they bought an awful lot of liberal propaganda on the liberal plantation and think he’s right.
BASHIR: On the liberal plantation. Wow.
BUCHANAN: That's right.
It's so nice to see Pat Buchanan speaking out in support of a party that would be happy to take us back to the days of Jim Crow laws if they had their way and who have used racial divisions and not so subtle dog-whistles as Buchanan did here with inflammatory rhetoric to divide the electorate and convince them to vote against their own self interests pretending that Republicans and not those who embrace liberalism have had their best interests at heart.
