Homophobia

Homosexuality involves sexual acts most men consider not only immoral, but filthy. The reason public men rarely say aloud what most say privately is they are fearful of being branded "bigots" by an intolerant liberal orthodoxy that holds, against all evidence and experience, that homosexuality is a normal, healthy lifestyle.
-- Pat Buchanan, September 3, 1989, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Homosexuality is not a civil right. Its rise almost always is accompanied, as in the Weimar Republic, with a decay of society and a collapse of its basic cinder block, the family.
-- Pat Buchanan, 1977, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Gay rights activists seek to substitute, for laws rooted in JudeoChristian morality, laws rooted in the secular humanist belief that all consensual sexual acts are morally equal. That belief is anti-biblical and amoral; to codify it into law is to codify a lie.
-- Pat Buchanan, Wall Street Journal, January 21, 1993, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

The poor homosexuals -- they have declared war upon nature, and now nature is extracting an awful retribution.
-- Pat Buchanan, discussing AIDS in 1983, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

With 80,000 dead of AIDS, our promiscuous homosexuals appear literally hell-bent on Satanism and suicide.

AIDS is nature's retribution for violating the laws of nature.

Short Graphic Rule

Racial Intolerance

The War Between the States was about independence, about self-determination, about the right of a people to break free of a government to which they could no longer give allegiance. How long is this endless groveling before every cry of "racism" going to continue before the whole country collectively throws up?
-- Pat Buchanan, accusing someone of "putting on an act" by associating the Confederacy with slavery, July 28, 1993, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

There were no politics to polarize us then, to magnify every slight. The "negroes" of Washington had their public schools, restaurants, bars, movie houses, playgrounds and churches; and we had ours.
-- Pat Buchanan, when discussing race relations in the 1950s, in Right from the Beginning, Buchanan's 1988 autobiography, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

We were among Hoover's conduits to the American people,
-- Pat Buchanan, who was caught publishing FBI anti-Martin Luther King Jr. propaganda as his own editorials in the St Louis Globe Democrat in the mid-1960s, in Right from the Beginning, Buchanan's 1988 autobiography, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

[For President Nixon to visit King's widow on the anniversary of King's assassination because it would] outrage many, many people who believe Dr. King was a fraud and a demagogue and perhaps worse.... Others consider him the Devil incarnate. Dr. King is one of the most divisive men in contemporary history.
-- Pat Buchanan, while working as a White House adviser to Nixon, reported in the New York Daily News, October 1, 1990, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Take a hard look at [KKK leader David] Duke's portfolio of winning issues and expropriate those not in conflict with GOP principles [such as] reverse discrimination against white folks.
-- Pat Buchanan, February 25, 1989, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

There is nothing wrong with us sitting down and arguing that issue that we are a European country.
-- Pat Buchanan, Newsday, November 15, 1992, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

How, then, can the feds justify favoring sons of Hispanics over sons of white Americans who fought in World War II or Vietnam?
-- Pat Buchanan, discussing affirmative action, January 23, 1995, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

An across-the-board assault on our Anglo-American heritage.
-- Pat Buchanan, describing multiculturalism, when speaking before the Christian Coalition in 1993, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Antisemitism

Israeli-occupied territory.
-- Pat Buchanan, describing Washington, DC, when discussing Jewish influence in US government, St Louis Post Dispatch, October 20, 1990, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

[Despite Hitler's anti-Semitic and genocidal tendencies, he was] an individual of great courage.... Hitler's success was not based on his extraordinary gifts alone. His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path.
-- Pat Buchanan, in a 1977 column, The Guardian, January 14, 1992, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Diesel engines do not emit enough carbon monoxide to kill anybody.

Short Graphic Rule

Gynophobia

Rail as they will about "discrimination," women are simply not endowed by nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism.
-- Pat Buchanan, November 22, 1983, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

The real liberators of American women were not the feminist noise-makers, they were the automobile, the supermarket, the shopping center, the dishwasher, the washer-dryer, the freezer.
-- Pat Buchanan, Right from the Beginning, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

If a woman has come to believe that divorce is the answer to every difficult marriage, that career comes before children ... no democratic government can impose another set of values upon her.
-- Pat Buchanan, Right from the Beginning, quoted from Political Amazon's "Quotes from Hell"

Short Graphic Rule

Like all idolatries, democratism substitutes a false god for the real, a love of process for a love of country.
