Pat Buchanan and Tucker Carlson to the Rescue of White Men

Oh no, white men in America are being “slagged on” and these two macho men aren’t going to take it any more. I hope all you white men out there, yeah, you know who you are, send a thank you note to these two venerable gentlemen for their courage in defending this oppressed group.

Asserting that he was “offended” by comments that Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean reportedly made during a speech at Georgetown University — in which Dean reportedly said that the Democratic field “looks like America,” while the Republican field, made up of white males, “looks like the 1950s and talks like the 1850s” — Pat Buchanan said on the February 28 edition of Tucker: “Look, what did white males do? OK, they were the only guys signing the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, all the dead at Gettysburg, all the dead at Normandy.” Buchanan then responded to radio host Bill Press by stating, “Why is it … OK to mock … backhand white — no wonder you’re losing white males,” and also said, “I think you guys are self-hating white folks.” His comments came after host Tucker Carlson asserted of Dean’s remarks: “I must say, I’m not going to sit by a single more time and listen to someone slag on, quote, ‘white men.’ “

Oh and apparently the thing about all the dead at Normandy and Gettysburg isn’t exactly accurate. Among the troops at the invasion of Normandy there were approximately 2,000 African American men and at least two of them died there. And at Gettysburg there were two know African American casualties but one of them was a woman disguised as a man fighting the battle.

It’s easy to see how Pat Buchanan could get his facts wrong in his fevered battle to save white men in America, but please Mr. Buchanan, could you at least try to tell the truth. And obviously Tucker Carlson, well he’s doing the best he can, being a white male an all.

  1. “Look, what did white males do? OK, they were the only guys signing the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, all the dead at Gettysburg, all the dead at Normandy.”

    Ya gotta love these guys. Women had no rights at all, except birthin’ them babies, and blacks weren’t even considered human — but here’s this poor put-upon old white guy blaming the oppressed for failing to participate. And lying through his ignorant teeth.

  2. There might well have been some women and some non-white men signing the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence — except the white men wouldn’t let them. What a stupid comment!
