PAT BUCHANAN DOES HIS BEST PAT BUCHANAN IMITATION…. Pat Buchanan’s record on diversity and ethnicity should, under sane circumstances, force him from polite company.
And yet, syndicated columns like this one, published today, don’t seem to interfere with Buchanan’s lucrative career as a high-profile American media personality.
[O]f the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.
Is this the Democrats’ idea of diversity?
But while leaders in the black community may be upset, the folks who look more like the real targets of liberal bias are white Protestants and Catholics, who still constitute well over half of the U.S. population. […]
[N]ot in nearly half a century has a Democratic president nominated a white Protestant or white Catholic man or woman…. If Kagan is confirmed, the Court will consist of three Jews and six Catholics (who represent not quite a fourth of the country), but not a single Protestant, though Protestants remain half the nation and our founding faith.
Regular readers may recall that, not quite a year ago, Buchanan encouraged the Republican Party to engage in more race baiting and insisted that the key to GOP success in the future is doing more to appeal to whites. He added that the GOP should tell whites that “their sons and daughters are pushed aside to make room for the Sonia Sotomayors.”
The mind reels.
