Fire Pat Buchanan!

This week Pat Buchanan wrote, astonishingly, that Norwegian Terrorist Anders Behring Breivik "may be right" in his perception of a Crusades-like conflict between Christians and Muslims.

So is MSNBC paying Buchanan to broadcast his extreme views on air?

Buchanan should be able to say just about anything he wants. But MSNBC -- a network that is now working to position itself as the progressive alternative to FOX News and CNN -- doesn't have to give him a platform.

Tell MSNBC: Fire Pat Buchanan

MSNBC President Phil Griffin considers the network "the place to go for progressives." But promoting bigotry and racism is anything but progressive.

Buchanan's laundry list of unabashed white-supremacy includes downplaying slavery, writing a book in which he advocated shutting down our borders to maintain white dominance and espoused the genetic superiority of whites, complaining that confirming Elena Kagan would put too many Jews on the supreme court, and even defending Hitler. Repeatedly.

Now, Buchanan is validating Breivik's radical, anti-Muslim ideology - the ideology Breivik wrote about extensively in his 1500 page manifesto, citing numerous prominent American right-wing voices of Islamophobia, especially regarding the Park51 Islamic cultural center. Buchanan himself likened the center to the Nazi's trying to march in Skokie, Illinois 3 decades ago.

Send a letter to MSNBC now and tell them to fire Pat Buchanan!

Stop giving a platform on your network to xenophobia, bigotry and hate speech. Fire Pat Buchanan immediately.

      It is a disgrace to award hateful, bigots and racists like Buchanan, and give them a public platform from which to launch their filth!
