MSNBC fired Pat Buchanan

Patrick J. Buchanan
My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.

After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.

The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?" ...

MSNBC President Phil Griffin told reporters, "I don't think the ideas that (Buchanan) put forth (in his book) are appropriate for the national dialogue, much less on MSNBC."
Buchanan is dangerous because he dares to speak and write about what made American a great nation, and how that is being undermined by various forces.

There are anti-Americans who hate American culture. If someone defends American culture, as Buchanan does, he is called racist, sexist, zenophobic, anti-semitic, and other hate terms. They do not want to address what he says because they do not want to say that they hate American culture. So they resort to name-calling.

Note that MSNBC did not say that Buchanan was wrong, or even unpopular. It fired him because it did not want his issued discussed.
