TPM has some excerpts from Pat Buchanan’s new book. This one really got me:
Perhaps some of us misremember the past. But the racial, religious, cultural, social, political, and economic divides today seem greater than they seemed even in the segregation cities some of us grew up in.
Back then, black and white lived apart, went to different schools and churches, played on different playgrounds, and went to different restaurants, bars, theaters, and soda fountains. But we shared a country and a culture. We were one nation. We were Americans.
Tell that to the people who rode in the back of the bus Pat! You might be longing for the days of segregation, but black America sure isn’t.
Perhaps it’s time for MSNBC to be shut-off until they stop giving a microphone to this man.
