Pat Buchanan: "Who Truly Imperils Our Free Society?"

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via,

“The Barbarian cannot make … he can befog and destroy but … he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.”

Hilaire Belloc’s depiction of the barbarian is recalled to mind as the statues honoring the history and heroes of the Republic and of the West continue to be vandalized and smashed.

A week ago, the statue of missionary and Catholic Saint Fr. Junipero Serra was beheaded at the Santa Barbara Mission he founded. A century-old Columbus statue in Central Park was defaced and spray-painted with: “Hate will not be tolerated.”

Baltimore’s monument to Francis Scott Key, who observed the bombardment of Fort McHenry on a British warship late in the War of 1812 and was inspired to write “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was covered in red paint. “Racist anthem” was written across it.

In Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement, the university last week had to spend $600,000 to protect an invited speaker of the college Republicans from being assaulted.

But St. Louis was where the real action was. Friday, a mob hurled rocks and bottles injuring 11 cops, leaving one with a broken jaw. They smashed windows at the mayor’s residence and marched miles to the Central West End to berate diners on patios of restaurants with the menacing chant: “Off the sidewalk. Into the street.”

Saturday, the mob invaded and shut down a suburban mall, and then smashed windows across a nightlife district.

The protesters rationale: rage at a not-guilty verdict in the murder trial of ex-cop Jason Stockley in the death of Anthony Lamar Smith — in 2011.

Stockley’s police van had been struck by Smith’s car, who had been nabbed in an alleged drug deal and led police on an 80-mile-an-hour chase, at the end of which Stockley emptied his gun in Smith.

Yet even Attorney General Eric Holder declined to investigate.

On Sunday, Black Lives Matter showed up at the St. Louis’ police headquarters chanting, “Stop killing us!” But if the killing of black folks is a legitimate grievance, we need to ask: Who is killing them?

Last year, there were 4,300 victims of shootings in Chicago and 762 deaths. How many of those shootings were by cops?

How many of those shootings, mostly of blacks, were acts of “terrorism by White supremacists, White nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan,” all of whom our ever-heroic Congress demanded that President Trump, in a joint resolution after Charlottesville, denounce.

Nowhere in the resolution was there any mention of Antifa, the “anti-fascist” fighters on the other side of the Charlottesville brawl, where a protester was run down and killed by a Nazi sympathizer.

What is it in their DNA that causes Republicans reflexively to sign on to a one-sided Democratic denunciation of President Trump for the sin of suggesting there were two parties to the Charlottesville brawl?

And are neo-Nazis really a threat to the republic?

In 1963, this writer was at Dr. King’s March on Washington, which began on the Monument grounds where George Lincoln Rockwell’s Nazis were yelling slurs. On the site where Rockwell’s Nazis stood, there stands today the African-American Museum.

When my father was a 21-year-old Al Smith Democrat in D.C. in the Calvin Coolidge era, scores of thousands of anti-Catholic Klansmen strode up Pennsylvania Avenue, and the national Klan numbered in the millions.

But is the KKK of today a serious threat to civil rights?

Lately, St. Louis and East St. Louis have boasted the highest murder rates in America. Is that the doing of white supremacists?

This morning we read there have been so many smashed and stolen bicycles that Baltimore is canceling its Bike Share program.

Did David Duke and his Klan friends steal all those bikes?

Who are the ones shouting down speakers? Who violently disrupts political rallies, on campuses and off? Who engages in mob violence after almost every police shooting of a black suspect? As for interracial assaults, rapes and murders, according to FBI crime statistics, these are primarily the work of black criminals against white victims.

The Justice Department should report on hate crimes by white racists. But from the stats, anti-white racism is far more common and far more manifest in crimes of violence. Who reports that truth?

Are Christian supremacists murdering Muslims in Europe, or are Muslim supremacists committing acts of terrorism in Europe and conducting genocide against Christians in the Middle East?

The left has been marinated in an ideology where the enemy is always to the right.

People blinded by ideology, unable to see the true enemies of their civilization, end up losing it, and their lives as well.

“We sit by and watch the Barbarian,” wrote Belloc, “We tolerate him … We are tickled by his irreverence; his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creed refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond; and on those faces there are no smiles.”

"Are Christian supremacists murdering Muslims in Europe, or are Muslim supremacists committing acts of terrorism in Europe and conducting genocide against Christians in the Middle East?"

Or are Christian and Jewish U.S. war mongers and profiteers conducting mass murders of Muslim civilians, wholesale destruction of their neighborhoods and working on the total destabilization of the Middle East, and, thus, creating worldwide Muslim blowback? Guess Pat forget about the law of cause and effect.

The "protester in charlottseville was struck and killed by a car" is pattently false. There is absolutely no evidence she was hit, it was an early assumption that furthers the narrative. She died of a heart attack. Also the picture showed on the M5M is very old, she is was morbidly obese on the her final day.When this falsehood is repeated it just cements it in societal memory, facts be damned.

The certainly make life way more difficult for regular working black people.  Endless welfare needs to stop, you can't give people indefinite welfare it destroys any desire to better yourself.  At least if you are "forced" to work to survive you say to yourself, "there has to be a better way" then you seek out the knowledge to do that "better way".  The Dems really played the long game by changing their tune and becoming the party of free stuff knowing it would destroy many blacks.

Obviously, you know NOTHING about Pat Buchanan. He's been politically incorrect forever and says whatever he thinks. I don't always agree with him, but I certainly respect him. I have a number of his books. He always painfully documents every fact in the footnotes, so you know it is the truth. I really appreciate that kind of attention to detail.

You are ignorant. Pat Buchanan has been syndicated in mainstream publications, but since the mid-1970s his articles have usually been intended to demonstrate far right opinions worthy only of ridicule and disparagement by the elites. Pat was alt-right when Andrew Brieitbart was shittin' yeller and, since the late 1970s, a loud proponent of just about every plank in Trump's platform. Pat Buchanan was the first major jounalist to chronicle American cultural decadence and foresee the potential endpoints. And he was usually dead right. He remains a far more committed populist/American nationalist than just about any well known thinker or writer in the country today.Unfortunately, he's rather long in the tooth;  PB will be missed.

I don't consider the corrupt Roman Catholic Church to be Christian. They hold their traditions to be equal to the Holy Bible and so teach the commandments of men as gospel. Read a history of the Popes. It sounds like a Most-Wanted FBI poster. Priests should marry. Peter was married as the Holy Bible mentions his mother-in-law, but the RC Church has determined that they know better than God and what has the result been? Sexual predators.Anyone who claims they speak for God is no Christian. That is the height of arrogance.

Paul Kersey,If you're actually the Paul Kersey from SBPDL - which needs to come back online, BTW - then you should know better than to espouse the Marxist bullshit version of the Crusades. The original Crusades were a response to CENTURIES of Muslim jihad. Fact. Of course, they went entirely too far with it, but that's to be expected of any authoritarian government, which is what most organized religions, and particularly the Vatican, really are. BTW, I am not nor have ever been a Christian by belief or practice, but truth is what it is. There's a reason that "the halls of Tripoli" are mentioned in the Marine hymn, and it isn't because of Jesus.

Even Buchanan still equates Dr. Duke with the Klan... an organization he left 40+ years ago. And even so... do members of the modern Klan disrupt NAACP rallies with bats and flame throwers? Did they openly avow on a daily basis their desire to see then President Obama assassinated? Do they scream for illegal European immigration into this country? Of course not. Hypocrites all.

The reason you're "not sure where the Doctor part comes in" is because you've imbibed everything about the man from the jewish media.  Since his Klan days, he has successfully won a Representative seat in Louisiana and earned a doctorate in history from a University in Ukraine (not to mention being a world-renowned author of several books on forbidden subjects).  Go to his website to hear for yourself - without the semitic lying filter - exactly what he thinks and stands for.  You'll be amazed at just how badly you've been duked, er...

Absolutely. FFS Nazism ended in 1945, over 70 years ago. No matter.....if you love your own country and White European people that created its civilization and are attempting to protect your nation's culture from annihilation then by default you are an 'extremist' ....... a ......'neonazi' according to the Ashke-nazis…

Let me fix it for you... (((Global-Lust Banksters))).(((They))) lust for global assets and perpetual rents, using their Babylonian Money Magic. Money Magic that Talmudic Rabbis have safeguarded and passed down the generations. One of the numerous benefits of a tightly-knit, homogenous group, collaborating for the benefit of their own group, not another.To show you how messed (fucked) up our society has become, it would be like working for the success of another family or company, instead of one's own. How do you spell "Reverse Darwinism"?
