Welcome back Pat Buchanan; the poster boy for your racist xenophobic American.
And shame on Chuck Todd and NBC for bringing him back. This is just what we need in this current political climate; more ignorant and unenlightened thoughts from Richard Nixon's former inside man.
This is what John Amato, writing for Crooks And Liars, had to say about the aforementioned Mr. Buchanan:
"Buchanan has repeatedly defended Adolf Hitler and once labeled him "an individual of great courage." He claimed "in a way, both sides were right" during the Civil War. He declined to disavow the idea that minorities have inferior genes. He defended a school's ban on interracial dating. He opined that "this has been a country built, basically, by white folks" and falsely claimed only "white males" died at Gettysburg and Normandy. He once claimed "conservatives are the niggers of the Nixon administration" and urged President Nixon not to visit Martin Luther King Jr.'s widow because King was "one of the most divisive men in contemporary history."
Anyway, speaking of Adolf Hitler, it seems that yet another right- wing politician thought that it was cool to refer to a time in our history when Adolf Hitler was committing atrocities in Europe, while talking about the policies of the president of the United States.
"Hyperbolic analogies to Nazis or the Holocaust are hardly a new feature of American political rhetoric, but Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee got weirdly specific about concentration-camp crematoriums yesterday when denouncing the Obama Administration's nuclear deal with Iran. In a Breitbart interview, Huckabee declared, "This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."' [Source]
What is it with these guys and their love affair with all things Nazi?
And Huckabee in particular seems to be enamored with the whole Nazi thing.
He does it, for instance, here, and here, and here.
Anyway, I know that Mike Huckabee is a "religious" man, so I am going to give him a quote from a book that I know he reads: "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he".
