Pat Buchanan Refuses to Apologize for Calling President Obama a “Boy”

4 Aug

MSNBC commentator Pat Buchanan refused to apologize for calling President Obama a “boy” on national television.  Speaking to Rev. Al Sharpton on the network, Buchanan referred to President Obama as “your boy” to Rev. Sharpton, sparking an on-air fight that went viral on the Internet.

“Some folks took what I said as some kind of a slur,” Buchanan said on Morning Joe. “None was meant, none was intended, none was delivered.”

Most interesting was that on the same day, Buchanan wrote a column stating that the Tea Party was going to “nail the coonskin to the wall,” referencing the debt ceiling negotiations with President Obama.   His appearance on Morning Joe was accompanied by Mark Halperin, the man who was suspended for referring to President Obama as a “d*ck.”

“Your boy, Barack Obama, caved…” Buchanan said to Sharpton.

Sharpton fired back at Buchanan.

“My what?” he said. “My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?”

“He’s your boy in the ring,” Buchanan said, laughing.

“He’s nobody’s boy,” Sharpton responded.  “He’s your president, and he’s our president, and that’s what y’all don’t get through your head.”

Pat Buchanan has been accused of racism on multiple occasions in the past, and some wonder if he uses specific language to rile up those who disagree with him.   Groups are petitioning MSNBC to fire Buchanan, but the network has not yet made a statement on the matter.

    Why they don’t fire him? Why should they if the ratings are good and most importantly, they actually agree with him

    White folks have an agenda of saying anything that they think blacks will be offended and therefore distracted form the real reasons for these attacks, Blacks must realize we have been exposed to his deception and trickery longer than any other oppressed people and we, should recognize when the networks are using these puppets to distract us from the really important business at hand, Pat, Rush, Hanity, etc. are all diversions to make us lose the real focus as a mass voting block and econic force, we can run this whole thing if we decide to stop listening to the bull, and stay on our message…I salute Rev. Al for always being willing to confront these rediculous statements by clows in dress suits, but we as a group must not get caught up in the same old he said she said crap that has and will always be his tool to cause confusion and distraction.
    Lets dig deeper and find out what Pat and his Tea Party crew are really up to or not up to, sometimes it’s just diversion they seek….stay on point and preasure your congress people and you senators, they hold the keys to any real change in what the networks put forth and the talking headless suits spew form the bottomless pit from which thier sounds come forth….Remember Willie Lynch’s teachings and realize they are still in effect….

      @Billy Know. Sir you’ve got it mixed up a little. You are right that they use diversionary tactics, but this much more than diversion. What they are doing now is actually a game play. I’ve mentioned before that the Anglo-elite have schemes that they use to support Obama. Believe it or not. He was their choice because they are using him to do nasty things to us here and to nations around the world. Mr. Obama is part of their con game.
      He is a willing participant and the political machine of democrat and republican politicians are all together in this game. They are all flunkies of the real power players whom are the Anglo-Elite Secret-Society ultra-wealthy and their Jewish cohorts etc.

      We have no control over congress or any form of government! They are not listening to us because they are controlled by those ultra-rich power/warmongers. This group of racist/religious thugs are much too powerful and much too wealthy to touch. They bring down whole nations and destroy the leaderships of those nations to replace them with flunkies who must turn over the wealth and resources that belong to the people. It is what leaves the masses around the world suffering dire poverty!

      So when people like Pat Buchanan say negative things aimed at Obama it is used as a reverse psychological ploy. It’s used to make those ‘blacks’ still in the dark about who Obama is connected to, angry. They realize that if ‘blacks’ are showing support for Obama they are still safely on path to use him for another four years. Obama is not the person you imagine he is and it should be obvious by the horrible things that have been done in his name and the negative actions against the masses that continue to unfold. It is easy for him and his cohorts to act as if they want to help us and not do a damn thing at the same time. In fact that is what they are supposed to be doing!

      We are being conned on a grand scale by the Anglo-Elite and their cohorts and many of us cannot comprehend the enormity of this conspiracy. That saddest part about it is that many citizens are so unaware and confused that they have no idea how bad our situation really is and since they don’t understand and are not aware, they fall for every trick in the book!

        WOW, so you don’t trust Slick Willy (Obama)? Do you think he is just a puppet on a string?

    I have watched buchanan froth at the mouth on morning joe and they just let him go.
    When he called My President ” your boy ” I wanted to reach into my tv and pull him through and let him know he probably should have say what was on the tip of his tongue and that was your N—–. Because that’s what he wanted to say. But let someone black call them a name and it’s world news. I’m so glad that “GOD ALMIGHTY
    is watching over MY President Barack Obama God Bless you and your Family we are behind you all the way to 2016 and as far as God will take you I will be sending another $10.00 for your campaign Thank you God for sending Barack to us.

      @ Jackie. Your are showing normal signs of great delusion. Everything you have said shows signs of overwhelming ignorance and psychological confusion. The traits you are experiencing are pandemic in the African-American ‘black’ community in this country. Many blacks have not studied this country and the people who run it closely enough to understand the twisted thought processes we are experiencing. It takes a very driven person to find out how we are being literally bombarded with BS in such a way that we can’t see straight. No one can see what is happening without a great amount of study, by finding all the proper reading material available. You must strive to increase your worldview, your scientific knowledge, the truth of US history, and what they are doing to numb our minds including the introduction of their religious belief system into the minds of our ancestors. We keep passing these vile traits down to our children generation after generation and they can expect the same negative outcome.

      It is difficult for some people to become enlightened and aware. Some of us have a special talent for finding truth, logic, and enlightenment, just like some are better at math, art or music. Some of us are doomed to be lost in a dark place without ever realizing that the lies foisted on our ancestors has contaminated our brains and our children brains as well.

      When you can’t recognize the ultimate power of the ‘elite’ white-men of this country and what they are capable of doing, you are left angered and misdirected and focusing on either the wrong thoughts or on just the thoughts that they intended (planted), for you. Either way you’ve got it all wrong but you are not alone, you are in the company of tens of millions of blacks and whites alike. If you knew what I know you would not be upset to hear a white man call Obama a name, in fact I could think of some pretty good names I call him on a regular basis these days. He is the opposite of what you believe he is and he is helping those powerful white men murder millions of Africans and steal their resources, while here in ‘America’ he is helping the “white man” reduce many of us to beggars on the street and have tiny little jail cells waiting for those of us who try to feed our families any way we can! Yes I can think of a few choice words to call him myself!!! He is in the ranks of the traitorous Clarence Thomas etc.

    Most African-Americans were born into this very segregated country which was stolen from a beautiful ‘people of color’, the Anglos from England chose to call “Indians”. While knowing that this country wasn’t India!
    Black people are able to adapt to anything, but some of us are not able to adapt into a social structure filled with haters. Many of the upper echelon blacks have gravitated to conformity and assimilation and are doing quite well but unknowingly at the expense of the masses of disenfranchised ‘blacks’. There seems to be a mental block among even some of the most intelligent among us, but some of our richest ‘blacks’ are purposely throwing the rest of us into the fire to protect their own well being.

    Most of the mainstream African-American ‘blacks’ don’t have a clue as to who actually runs this country or should I say are running this country into the ground. Think about the kind of white power we are dealing with. Powerful Anglo-Elite men can take whatever they want from anyone without fear of prosecution. Look at Rupert Murdoch. Do you think that he can be incarcerated as the vile criminal he is? No! He and those like him have so much power and so many powerful connections around the world that politicians, judges, police, and even world leaders are afraid of them. White men like him have the power to bring down nations! That is why it should be easy to understand our political structure when you realize that these ultra rich ultra powerful white men would not have a black man appearing to lead this country unless they wanted it and had good reasons for it.

    We are following and conforming to a country full of people who hate us in many ways, some of them know it, but some of them have psychologically repressed feelings. There are four times more whites in this country than blacks. They own everything and they determine whether we have equal rights, jobs, economic security, and things like
    justice, and fairness. They don’t care whether we live or die and judging by the great numbers of blacks they have incarcerated, dumped with drugs, and murdered. The story should be obvious.

    But black people are hardwired to believe these haters and black people have been here so long that we are basically assimilated into the same social structure that preys on us and manipulates our minds. Nothing is as it seems, but many of our people are so enamored with their environment and have found themselves a comfort zone in false patriotism and religious belief. So much so that they cannot see. Many of us have a twisted and sordid idea of what this country is all about , and are totally confused. Many are so ensconced in “The American Dream” and a manufactured ‘God’ that they will not listen to reason or logic. So when a white man says something negative about one of ours we tend to accept it on face value while never realizing that it could be a psychological ploy. Again. Nothing is as it seems in the US! If we can’t correct our mindsets we are thriving on false hopes and fantasies and remain easy prey to a very skilled and cunning white power elite! (The scatterbrained African-American “black” society. Some thriving, tens of millions suffering). No US president has ever been truly supportive of our well-being, but they (including Obama), put on a mean show!

    “your boy” Really? Sounds a lot like McCain’s “that man over there” rant during the 2008 Presidential Debates, remember? I could be wrong, but if Buchanan is not racially biased, he could certainly use some lessons in cultural sensitivity. God bless us all.

    This is more proof tu me that the dominate culture do not KNOW Black Anericans. We have heard them, Caucasian Americans , refer to the Black POUS in several racist terms and name walling. But, Black Americans see President Obama as the POUS mores than whites. I believe when President Obama is attacked verbally, and in Congress. he is taking a lash for all Black people. Caucasians expect Black people to become angry enough to protest, like the Civil Rights Movement, because they call the POUS a tar baby or “boy”. We do not, can not, offend the office of the first POUS by reacting as though offending him will cause a race riot.

    Thanks for Rev Al and others in positions to provide the required commentary.

    CAUCASIAN AND WHITE AMERICA DO NOT KNOW BLACK PEOPLE.

    Even though I’m inclined to believe some of what WizardG writes; IMO even if Obama’s presidency is/was a type of conspiracy, true inbreed racist attitudes can not be caged. We are witnessing racism running amuck.

    Pat called the President a “Coonskin” at his website Humanevents.com. He also wrote a column about Blacks having too many good jobs in state, local and federal government, thus we now understand why Republicans have gone after those jobs. Read it for your self. MSNBC is well aware, they will keep him off the air until the anger dies down then return him. Hopefully all MSNBC viewers will keep the pressure on. Pat also just wrote a Racist book that is being released. Just google him his colums are very racists the remarks from his followers are worst than anything you will have read in 200 years.

    The Day of the Hobbits
    by Patrick J. Buchanan
    08/02/2011
    Mocked by The Wall Street Journal and Sen. John McCain as the little people of the Lord of the Rings books, the Tea Party “Hobbits” are indeed returning to Middle Earth — to nail the “Coonskin” to the wall.

    Instead of all the picketing, what we can do is cut off the cable and remove all TV’ s from the home…The television is the worst thing that we as black people can have in our homes, these shows are refer to as “programs” for a reason, because the are indeed programming tools to get you to think, behave, and do things contrary to you goals…Why do you think black children @3-4 years of age will think of themselves as ugly? Look at all the children’s programs; white children are in all the rolls and if there is someone of color, they are playing the role of the clown, joking and tap dancing and not taken very serious…This is what is being taught to our children by white supremacy…Cut your cable off, don’t waste money on TV’s and invest in a library card which is still free, books and stop putting them in from of a TV for white people to form their concepts of what is beautiful or acceptable behavior…

    This comment is symptomatic of system that is founded as people of AcricN descent being the stepping stone, the boogeyman, the euphemistic culture other that is the core of all Western European societies. As offenses as Buchannan’s comments were about another grown man, who happens to be the President of the United States, it par for the course, when you consider the time of Buchannan’s upbringing were the following:
    Jim & Janes Crow were the law of the land. Buchannan’s 60 years old plus. That era is pre women U.S. Senators, pre any represention of any people in any sector of the U.S. Congress etc…. In conclusion, Buchannan is an aging devotee of the Founding Deis who viewed people of African descent as 3/5 of a human being; the blazing irony is typified in a Fonding Deist member, Thomas Jefferson’s phedophlliic conquest of the enslaved 14 year old Sally Hemmingway! This view of people of African descent is on display in Buchannan’s many comments; min addition to other of his Ilk!
