Don't bow nor apologize.
I come from a long line of thinkers and I think you are the single voice for rational Americans among a litany of spineless journalists on television. If Mr. Murdoch gives you an offer, take it. Keep up the good fight. It is sad to see how totally pervasive PC has become at the expense of reality and common sense.
We need someone like you!
Pat, I was in NH in 1996 when you asked us to "mount up and ride to the sound of gun fire." My support, and shared faith in your views and values, has never diminished. Unfortunately, we seem to lack the very leadership you exhibit in our current field of presidential candidates. I hope some day that another will inherit your mantle and expound on a political ideaology more Americans agree with than a biased media suggests. Keeping the faith and still riding in the brigade. Cheers!
Although I am an American Jew and a supporter of Israel, I have been a long term admirer of your intellect. You have consistently defended your values and spoken your mind. I am deeply concerned that you are portrayed as a racist and anti-semite. Condemning you as such is an assault on discourse and undermines the true battle to end racism and anti-semitism. I listened to your interview with Juan Williams and, as always, your unfiltered opinions gave dignity to the American ideal of discourse and debate. I hope you continue to cast light on the other side of the coin. Especially when I don't agree with you. Best of luck.
Thanks for helping me see the truth.
Thanks Pat for your courageous stands on the breakdown of our society. I've read four of your books and am looking forward to reading "Suicide of a Super Power". When I read "Day of Reckoning" and "The Unecessary War" I was hooked. I told my wife "the die is cast". I can never go back to the old way of thinking about our history and culture. Your books also led me to the Mises Institute. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I guess I'm a bonified Lbertarian now. I'm 67 years old and I finally get it. Also I believe many young people are getting it too.
Warmest regards, John McClelland
Sorry you were let go!!!
Pat, Was traveling and missed original news. I can't believe Joe and Mika would put up with this. I am very disappointed and will tell them so. Don't always agree with you, but really want to hear you. Best wishes, Ed
I hosted a radio talk show in San Francisco, for over 30 years, but never had a chance to interview Pat Buchanan. My loss. Pat is one of this country's most intelligent, clear-thinking, honest communicators.
The left will never quit hassling true conservatives, so it's best to expect it, and just roll on. God bless Pat Buchanan. Jim Eason
Check Wikipedia for Hyphenated Americans and the problems as early as 1898. Jesse Jackson fomented this again in 1988 to create separate societies. I am an American not a hyphenated American. 83 Yrs old. Two wars. Lvd RR.
Early support, circa 1991
I contributed $1,000 to your campaign, circa 1991, when you and your wife appeared at a hotel near the Atlanta, GA airport. Other attendees included conservative Atlanta business leader, the late Dillard Munford, who eventually passed on supporting you.
I am reading \"Suicide\" as I simultaneously read \"Travels of a T-Shirt\" a paen to Globalization, which is a required reading for my MS Marketing class at Georgia State University.
What is a commercially, successful, 80 year-old, son of Donegal parents to do to change the tide of Socialism and Globalization in the country I love and served honorably in the USN during the \"First Korean War\"?
Proud to say that M&L helped Sam Nunn, a long, long shot get elected to the US Senate in 1972. Sam had the courage to say \"no\" to Desert Storm, a profile in courage, in opposition to Bushes and their ilk, especially the frog man, Phil Gramm, who was in the pocket of the Banksters.
Go Pat, Mike
As a long time ex-Democrat it's alarming to see our freedoms being taken away by the people elected to serve us not control us. We support you Mr. Buchanan and your right to free speech. Keep up the good work for all of us AMERICANS that care so much for ou country. 2012 has got to change the way we run our country, and that comes with respect for our LORD. J WALSH
Kinship in Truth
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
I am a great admirer of your columns, your books and commentaries which often led me to wish that I could talk to you. You understand history the way I personally experienced some of it.
I frequently watch MSNBC, and still am angry that you became victim to organized censorship by the same elements who attempt to silence or discredit not only private persons, but especially public individuals like you, seeking blatant control of information. This same gang tries to intimidate anyone who does not follow their version of history -- a scheme for which my husband’s generation did not fight WWII!
Best wishes -- and I hope to continue finding your future commentaries and valuable analysis in other venues!
My husband and I watched C-SPAN this morning and really enjoyed your spot. You truly understand the dangerous trends that exist in our country and your expertise in history and politics is without question. Thank you.
I used to joke that "Pat Buchanan has forgotten more than most people ever knew" and for decades I've admired your ability to carefully present a story and to respond to arguments. .
I'm very disappointed you're not on MSNBC. It was a large part of the reason I watched Morning Joe. I'm still a believer in you. (We met very briefly in Atlanta years ago, and don't regret in the least having voted for you.
God Bless You Pat !!
I am a 40 year old man that grew up watching you on Crossfire. I have an autographed copy of Right From The Beginning dated November 15, 1990, and darn near joined you in New Hampshire in 1992. I wanted you to know that even if MSNBC disrespects you - we all love you. God bless you Pat!

It's time to start the1-800-go pat go, good luck Rick Conklin. Anchorage ak
Will miss you Pat!
Though I am a liberal Democrat and disagree with much of what you say I enjoy you on Morning Joe and Mc Laughlin. In reality speaking against Israel is a death sentence for anyone who speaks to the public. Were you not right on Iraq? Yes, and you are right on Iran. Fight on, you are entitled to YOUR religious beliefs too. Good luck you will be missed! Fight on!
I was sorry to hear what happened.
I am sorry for what happened at MSNBC. I believe silencing opposing views is not a good thing. I did not always agree with you and you at times made me very angry, but I do believe you presented your views honestly and sincerely, which I can not say about a number of other pundits. Good luck with all that you do. And thank you for always being yourself when you expressed your views.
Semper Fi Patrick
This world and its leaders are totally screwed up. Families are broken and the idea of attending church services on Sunday has disappeared. Just bought your new book and looking forward to reading it. You were the only bright light on MSNBC and will be surely missed in the Finnerty household.As a retired Fed employee,it is painful but so true that my
beloved USA is in serious decline and so few people see it coming. Ayn rand hit the jackpot
with her analysis in \"Atlas Shrugged\". Hang tight and good luck my friend. Kevin Patrick Finnerty
The only true American
Dear Mr Buchanan
Your books are all an eye opener , with the guts to tell it like it is
Please don't ever stop informing us you are the only one I trust
God bless you
My Husband and I Miss Your Input on Morning Joe
As viewers of Morning Joe, mu husband and I look forward to your "take" on the many subject areas that concern the welfare of the American people. While political stance vary for the most part, we look forward to your articulate arguments, knowing they are based on your vast knowledge, knowing that your responses are nuanced, presenting the often ignored sides of a particular subject. Our local paper carries your column and we look forward to reading it each week. At the end of each column we may not agree with everything as you have expressed it, but we come away with a deeper understanding of the issue presented.
You are also a gentleman and conduct yourself accordinly. MSNBC is wrong. It is becoming very scary out here in our United States of America.
If they ask you to come back, come back. Not for them...but for us.
Mary and John
God Bless Pat Buchannan
I am relieved to hear your voice of reason and common sense. Mr. Buchanan, I am so afraid and sad, as I witness the death of this great nation. I am 59 years old, life time republican, conservative, law abiding, tax paying, always play by the rules person. I have no Washington represention, from either party. No one cares. It is a most helpless feeling. I could never fathom this country as upside down, inside out, good is bad and bad is good. We are living Atlas Shrugged.
Keep on with the fight. I began following you in my college days back in the 1980's while watching crossfire. Since then I've purchased several of your books and voted for you during each of your presidential bids. You are my generations Goldwater eclipsed only by Ronald Reagan. Thanks for being the standard bearer of our message
stay \on TV
Pat I am sure one of the other TV stations will pick you up You are too well respected and controversial for them not to, if not FOX, then one of the Cable channels
If Link TV or Current TV was smart, they would have you on to debate them on certain issues On many issues you are concert with them such as a need to return to National Economics
I have been an ally of yours before and since visiting your home for a fund-raiser in the primaries v. 41 - and, the left press notwithstanding, I suspect you have many others.
Your separation from MSNBC further demonstrates that liberals have all but been replaced by leftists, doctrinaire in their views - anything but liberal. Who would have thought the days of Tip and Moynihan could be seen as nostalgic.
I expect you will keep writing and look forward to seeing you on the air again sometime soon. Fox, however well meaning, could use some bucking-up. Poor Scarborough is all but lost, perhaps you can throw him a line once you get re-established.
Please keep fighting the good fight - we need someone who can hit with both hands, especially now.
All the best to you and yours,
John P. Ley
The Best Thing I Can Say
The best thing I can say about the people at MSNBC is that they are simply intellectually inferior to Patrick J. Buchanan.
Love U Man
I'm a lefty, a tool and die maker and former member of three unions. But, I subscribe to
The American Conservative because I want to believe that there are thinking, caring conservatives that care about the future for themselves and their children. I also read Hitler, Churchill, etc... it was a great book.
You are a great writer and I am glad that you are no longer on MSNBC. I don't know if you are still on McCglaughlin's program, but let's face it the only reason you are is because he's a former priest and you still want guidance from the church, despite all their sins. (Former Catholic here.)
Find a site that will support you and I will support that site. Luv U Man.
