MSNBC’s Pat Buchanan: Gay Marriage “Absurd,” DADT Repeal Advocates “Detested”

Published

on

MSNBC’s long-time political analyst, Pat Buchanan, has released his book, titled, “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” and the contents are bone-chilling. While America is all-too-familiar with Buchanan’s deep-seated Christo-centric racism, the depths of his hatred of homosexuality was previously unknown to most.

In the audio clip below, courtesy of Salon, Buchanan calls same-sex marriage equality “absurd,” suggests it is unconstitutional, claims gay marriage is being “imposed dictatorially,” and — while this is subject to interpretation, given his unclear language — Buchanan seems to suggest that the Obama Administration and his military leaders are now “deeply-resented and widely detested” because of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT).

Surely this is enough to get Buchanan, a former Republican presidential candidate, fired?

Remember, the is Pat Buchanan, the man who said in 2008,

“America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.”

Yes, you read that right. No, there’s no room for interpretation.

Here’s the transcript we created from the audio:

In the name of equality, the Supreme Court has declared the practice of homosexuality to be a constitutional right. Vaughn Walker, a gay federal judge in San Francisco, has ruled that same-sex marriage is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Can anyone believe this absurd notion of equality was intended by or written into the constitution by the Congress that produced the 14th Amendment? Although gay marriage has been rejected in 31 states in referenda, judges continue to declare that such unions be treated as marriages. An idea of equality rejected democratically by voters is being imposed dictatorially. In December 2010, a repudiated liberal Congress imposed its San Francisco values on the Armed Forces, by ordering homosexuals admitted to all branches of the service. Indoctrination of recruits, soldiers, and officers into an acceptance of the gay lifestyle will transfer authority over the military, the most respected institution in America, to agents of a deeply-resented and widely detested managerial state.

At what point does America get serious about hate speech? Freedom of speech has been abused long enough. If strict First Amendment advocates won’t budge, let’s make this an issue of capitalism. When will the free market refuse to financially support people who spew hate speech, and when will the main stream media refuse to give them a platform, and pay them for their “opinions?”

FOX NEWS IS STATE TV

Fox & Friends Host Goes Berserk, Calls Reporters ‘Agents of Russia’ Over Report Intel Official Briefed Congress

Published

on

Fox News is continuing to provide enormous spin for President Donald Trump. Earlier this week they twisted the news that Trump was angry an intelligence official briefed Congress on Russia attacking the 2020 election to help get him re-elected, by claiming “Trump Upset Over Kremlin Trying to Re-Elect Him.”

On Friday a “Fox & Friends” contributor launched into an insane – and false – rant to attack reports about an intelligence official briefing Congress that Russia is attacking the 2020 election by calling the press “agents of Russia.”

After co-host Steve Doocy delivered a fairly accurate although highly-edited accounting of The New York Times report on Congress being briefed, Pete Hegseth went berserk.

“Alright let’s be clear about what this really all is. This is all an attempt to discredit President Trump. That’s it. Delegitimize him all the way. So that’s why he wins again.”

“Every single media member in that clip, every single Democrat that parrots what they’re saying, they’re working together, they are the agents of Russia.”

“This is what Russia wants! They want to sow discord and misinformation and delegitimize our republic, destabilize it because they’re not our friends and they know that when we’re strong they’re in a worse position – which they’ve done for years before President Trump. This is what they do. The Democrats, the media, fell for it.”

“They hate Trump so much they’re will to parrot what the Kremlin is saying.”

“They are the agents of Russia. Not Donald Trump, not this White House.”

Hegseth went on to say the media is blowing out of proportion “every single time there’s a tiny itty-bitty little new nugget which could be handled by our intelligence agencies, dealt with through leaders in our government.”

The irony of course is our intelligence agencies brought the information to leaders in our government. House Republicans were furious upon hearing the news – furious that they were being told the truth, and wanted to stomp it out. So Rep. Devin Nunes told Trump, who then fired his Director of National Intelligence.

BAD CHOICE

Trump’s Intel Pick Will Blow Up in His Face as Agencies Revolt and Leak the Truth: Ex-CIA Official

Published

on

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning, former CIA case officer Phil Mudd said the selection of Ambassador Richard Grennell to be the acting Director of National Intelligence will likely blow up in the president’s face because he is not respected within the intelligence community who will seek to undercut him.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Mudd first mocked Grennell, saying, “I tell you, this is taking me back to when I was a child. it’s like if I played the game of Battleship, I could be the secretary of defense — the guy knows nothing about intelligence.”

He then proceeded to explain what Grenell will likely face during what expected to be his brief tenure since it is unlikely he will be sent to the Senate for confirmation to remain in the job.

“There is an upside to this if you are an intel person, I’m going to be real cynical here. If you watch what Grenell said, he said I’m not going to be around for long — meaning he doesn’t want the job,” Mudd began. “Legally he can’t stay around that long. So if you’re an intel person you’re sitting there saying ‘I’m going to slow roll it, I’m not going to pay attention to what he says.”

“There’s a challenge there when staff comes in from the White House that stays beyond Grenell, there’s a problem and there are reports of that happening,” he explained. “First they’re going to slow roll him. Second is, what’s his ability to control the message? The information he gets on Russian hacking is going to come from people who have been around for 20 or 30 years. Is he going to change it before he goes to the Hill to testify? That’s going to get out in a leak.”

“And the last thing is, how do you control the directors of the intelligence agencies, the NSA particularly and the director of the CIA who will get out there in testimony and say stuff different than what Grenell says,” he added. “The system here is going to be interesting. I think it’ll undercut the choice for DNI.”

ANOTHER UNQUALIFIED PICK!

Trump About to Toss His Brand New Director of National Intelligence to the Curb for Another Also Unqualified Nominee

Blowhard Anti-Gay Congressman Who Says ‘Democrats Are in Love With Terrorists’ Likely to Be Trump’s Top Intel Chief

Ambassador Richard Grenell had been President Donald Trump’s acting Director of National Intelligence for less than a full day and already the disloyal president is preparing to toss him to the curb. Grenell has no qualifications for the role – by law the DNI must have “extensive national security expertise” – but he does hold one card that beats all the others: blind, obedient loyalty to Trump.

That is all the president cares about when it comes to choosing the person who will be in charge of all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies and offices.

At 7:25 PM on Wednesday Trump officially made the announcement he was installing Grenell as acting DNI.

Grenell, who is loathed by Germany, the country to which he serves as U.S. Ambassador, started his new job Thursday.

At 10:51 PM Thursday, barely 24 hours after announcing Grenell, Trump announced Grenell’s stint would be short.

Sure enough, on Air Force One Trump told reporters he is considering plucking the also bombastic U.S. Congressman Doug Collins, Republican of Georgia, and making him the latest DNI. Collins literally could be the third DNI in a week, although he will need to be Senate confirmed.

Many Americans likely are familiar with Collins, the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee who throws temper tantrums for a living on national TV.

Here he is just last month saying “Democrats are in love with terrorists.”

Congressman Collins, who is anti-gay, opposes same-sex marriage, and opposed the Violence Against Women Act, is running for an open Senate seat in Georgia. Trump and the GOP are backing his challenger, Kelly Loeffler.

Collins, like Grenell, doesn’t have to worry too much about being totally unqualified. He’s got that blind loyalty to Trump bit down pat:

Here’s how a few experts are responding to the Collins news:
