Here is video of Pat Buchanan telling Chris Matthews that it was his party that was opposed to ending slavery.

Chris Matthews asked Pat Buchanan "where are you on the slavery issue to start with, you're pretty much against that now right? You've stopped your foot dragging on that one right?" Pat Buchanan responded "on that one Chris, I'm with the radical Republicans who passed the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendment. It was your party Chris that was the opposition."

Slap down by Pat. Go Pat Go!

Wishful Thinking by the GOP,  December 9, 2009 at 10:15 AM  

Its a fair statement, insofar as history goes. Unfortunately, the 19th-century abolitionist Republicans are long gone, having been replaced by a less-noble and less-tolerant 20th-century strain. Why else would the Dixiecrats ('Solid South') have joined the GOP, back in the 1970s? Pat knows that, since he lead the Nixonian campaign to embrace _white_ southerners.

Of course, none of this is news. Pat Buchanan is a vile, unrepentant xenophobe going waaay back...some 50 years or more. In fact, he admits it, gladly. Notice how he cheerfully mentioned his admiration for "Nathan Bedford Forrest and other fine folks like that"? NBF was a CSA officer and violent racist who help found the Ku Klux Klan. Stay classy, Pat. ;)

> "NBF was a CSA officer and violent racist who help found the Ku Klux Klan."

He sounds like he has a lot in common with Sen. Byrd. Of course now-a-days the democrats have traded the white robes and burning crosses for empty promises and government programs as a means of keeping minorities and the unaware enslaved to the plantation mentality. Whereas conservative republicans have upheld the American idea of taking responsabilty for one's own life choices, and creating one's own destiny.

Why is it that liberal democrats, including those who like to call themselves reverend this or minister that, spend so much time telling people to turn to their uncle sam for a handout, rather than teaching them to rely on their Father GOD to provide for their needs?
