Pat Buchanan says blacks not brainwashed they just love the “Liberal Plantation”


Good ole MSNBC Pat Buchanan said that he does not share Herman Cain’s viewpoint that blacks have been “brainwashed”. He just thinks that blacks bought into Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society to their detriment and now they are simply content to be on the “liberal plantation”. Which is worse brainwashed or living on a plantation? Both characterizations are insulting, but is there any truth in either one of them? Tell me what you think.

    Can’t say plantation, oh. no, that is racist. Don’t listen to what Pat said, cling to your bigotry and reactionary “progressive” views and let the black race kill it self off.

    The only brainwashed african americans I have ever heard are Republican african americans… they just blindly believe that the business leadership that took over during the Reagan term has made things better, ( I know that is a broad and sweeping generalization but am going with it for arguments sake). Republicans believe if things go wrong a fairy will come and sprinkle magic capitalist dust on it to make it all better.

    This time it looks like the Republicans using the blame tactic will not be blaming the downfall of America on a little old lady in Chicago, or blaming Mexicans (at least in public), or paroled felons. Lets blame america’s liberals for all the problems; after all historically they have been trouble makers, supporting civil rights, running underground railroads, taking a stand against slavery, taking a stand against poverty.

    We have seen America’s Republicans and big business run things for the last 30 years because they made promises that people wanted to hear. Competition did not make my phone bill cheaper, competition did not lower the cost of my power, competition did not lower the cost of my car, competition did not lower the cost of my insurance, tax cuts did not create those jobs, going back to school did not get me a new job. Being in power gave them wealth beyond imagination.

    And now its time for someone to take responsibility for what happened. But not the kings and queens of too big to fail yukking it up on the sidelines, not the republicans, no…. hmmmm oh right those evil liberals. America loves a good sound bite… that will work!

    Honestly the only person running for office recently I could relate to stated ” Rent is too damn high”. I believe it’s a meaningful solution for troubled times and is something I can believe in.

    African Americans brain washed??? Let me think about that… mmmm…. I’m white so am a little on the slow side like Pat…. hmmmm … yep that thought is almost formulated and is almost here…. nope, gotta go with the brothers and sisters fearlessly speaking their minds on most issues they concern themselves with. Over the years I have been impressed with the elegance, depth, and clarity of african american writers, of african american scholars, of african american artists, and of the occasionally interviewed african american discussing the flavor of the day.

    African Americans brain washed… the right wing propaganda pundits are fishing for something that will turn the angry to their side. Its that simple.

      For the record, In the 19th century the “liberals” you mention here were actually Republicans, and we are proud of their efforts taking on the status quo that kept blacks down. Both parties have morphed considerably in the past 150 years. JFK would today be considered a moderate-to-conservative Republican for his views on national defense and taxes.

      I am glad you have been impressed with the elegance, depth and clarity of writers, scholars and artists of color. May I recommend a few other deep thinkers like Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell, Jesse Lee Peterson and John McWhorter?

    Seems Mr. Cain struck a nerve her, telling it like it is. I do wish Buchanan would keep his trap shut at times like this. Every time I think that Republicans have got a chance to reason with blacks who are amenable to a conversation with the GOP, someone like Buchanan comes along and screws it up!

    The problem isn’t so much WHAT he said, it’s HOW he said it. Yes, a large majority of blacks are clinging to the liberal plantation. It’s all they’ve ever known and they are conditioned to never leave by the Democratic Party. But pointing it out in such a callous way is not how you talk them into leaving it. We need to engage the black community with a search for common ground, show how Republican values are actually very similar to the common values of (at least my generation) the black community, and what we offer in contrast to the tried and failed policies of the current Democratic Party. If I can just break of one in four, it would do everyone some good.

    Well said. This point of view needs to be trumpeted far and wide. The liberals have hijacked the minorities with hand outs and promises of justice, money and security. All they have gotten is poverty, violence, depravity and sorrow.

    It is time that we start acting like the human race and stop dividing up the culture by race. Our survival depends on it.
