Ding Ding Ding! We Have a Winner!

pat_buchanan.jpg…For the most blatant, punditry motherfuckering of the day, and it comes from Patrick Buchanan, racist dipshit and ass stain on America:

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.
[Jeremiah] Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Appalling! I didn’t realize, Pat, that welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Pell grants, student loans and legal services, et. al., were exclusively for black people. Actually, I received Pell grants and student loans and half my deadbeat family survives on food stamps. Oh, wait: I see. What you’re saying is that all African-Americans are impoverished welfare recipients who buy crack with food stamps! Sorry for the confusion.

Yeah, exactly -- When white people (who I would guess are the majority of the recipients of those programs' benefits) get welfare, student loans, etc, it's because they are hardworking people who've fallen on hard times or who we have deemed it necessary to help for the betterment of society as a whole. But when black people recieve those benefits, it's obviously an act of charity from us generous white folks, and clearly those black people ought to be grateful and therefore forget the continuing legacy of slavery and racism!

*roll eyes* Oh, it just hurts so bad to try to get into the mindset of these people.

I'm sorry, I totally didn't realize that only "white Americans" pay the taxes that go toward funding all of the programs he insists were designed to "bring the African-American community into the mainstream."

I wonder what programs the government funds with the taxes non-white Americans pay.

What a douchebag.

Of course, he happily ignores the fact that all that wonderful 'help' we poor black folks have received would not even be necessary if it weren't for the systematic oppression of our people.

Nice of him to include that nod to slavery though, but it kinda sounds like it was OUR fault.

So, if the Middle Passage (during which more than 1/3 died en route) is the best thing that ever happened to black Americans, does it mean that the Holocaust is the best thing that ever happened to Jews worldwide? After all, they got their own Jewish homeland after that, right? So what if 6 million Jews were murdered? They ought to get on their knees to thank the Nazis for making Israel possible.

Considering this asshole's record, True_Blue, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't think exactly that. You may very well have stolen next week's speech.

Dustin,

Considering that you used those government services, has it occurred to you that ....you might be ....Black? Gasp! The shock. The horror! Ok, grovel like the rest of us.
