Following up on BarbinMD's post, MSNBC, Pat Buchanan & White Supremacists, specifically the fact that Pat Buchanan, who is himself pretty radical, has invited radical white supremacist, Peter Brimelow to appear on MSNBC, the animating philosophy of Brimelow and Buchanan is not far from tje Holocaust Museum shooter.  Brimelow runs the far-right, white-supremacist site VDare.com.  The site hosts a range of avowed racists, anti-Semites and Nativists such as Steve Sailer, Jared Taylor and Kevin MacDonald as well as Michelle Malkin and a host of other hateful ranters. So one has to ask why is the mainstream media still treating Buchanan and Malkin, who associate with avowedly racist sites as mainstream commentators? I must emphasize that I am not advocating censorship, simply that these extremists be identified as such and treated accordingly.  

Peter Brimelow and John Tanton, founder of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and NumbersUSA, put together an anthology of his favorite racist writers for the an anthology issue of Tanton’s magazine The Social Contract. If anybody had any doubt about Tanton’s racist proclivities, this should put them to rest. (Peter Brimelow makes no bones of his racism, defending it as a bulwark against "political correctness.") John Tanton, founder of the Federation for American Immigration Reform and a dozen other nativist organizations, still proclaims agnosticism on the inferiority of non-whites, despite statements clearly belying such racism. The whole of the anthology issue of The Social Contract exclusively features writings from the extremist website VDare with the unbowed racist, Steve Sailer featured prominently. Take this gem from a recent Sailer article, (one of a racist multitude) "there’s a much simpler explanation for why white kids spend no more time on their homework than black and Hispanic kids, yet score vastly higher on achievement tests: because they are, ... smarter." What is astounding is that extremistssuch as Buchanan, Malkin, Brimelow are regularly featured on maintream media but are never identified as extremists.

P.S. All this racist crap is paid for by you, the taxpayer. VDare is a so-called "non-profit" corporation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
