In the 10 years I have been at MSNBC, the network has taken heat for what I have written, and faithfully honored our contract.

Yet my four-months' absence from MSNBC and now my departure represent an undeniable victory for the blacklisters.

The modus operandi of these thought police at Color of Change and ADL is to brand as racists and anti-Semites any writer who dares to venture outside the narrow corral in which they seek to confine debate.

All the while prattling about their love of dissent and devotion to the First Amendment, they seek systematically to silence and censor dissent.

Without a hearing, they smear and stigmatize as racist, homophobic or anti-Semitic any who contradict what George Orwell once called their "smelly little orthodoxies." They then demand that the heretic recant, grovel, apologize, and pledge to go forth and sin no more.

Defy them, and they will go after the network where you work, the newspapers that carry your column, the conventions that invite you to speak. If all else fails, they go after the advertisers.

Well, Buchanan certainly has these folks pegged. I think color of change is even run by president Obama's once in-house communist, van something. laugh

Poor, whiney, misunderstood Pat! Though I must admit when I first started reading it I thought it was written by Keith Olberman. You know, the unabashed liberal who was similarly run off MSNBC. For being to outspoken in his liberalism.

Guess they just get tired of old white guys who can't learn to moderate.

Well, Buchanan is homophobic, don't know about the rest. But where is that good ole libertarian right to run a business as you want?
Guess it only works when you are against a liberal, huh?

Hello pot, meet kettle.
The Republican Party has moved the standards so far to the right that even Reagan himself is liberal by today's standards.

Where did you come up with this string of crap, Hoskins? Who said anything about MSNBC not having the right to remove Buchanan from their programming? Are you under the impression that that is the point of the article or are you just trying to run interference for groups that seek to silence the voice of anyone with which they do not agree?

I thought Olberman's boo boo (he got suspended for a couple of days, wasn't it) was violating MSNBC's policy of not making campaign contributions -- especially not to pols he had on his show? Not that I see a problem with it, but then, I ain't MSNBC.

Perty short blacklist, but it's obliviously a trend. My god, who will be next?
