You're Better Off Without Them
I have been a long-time follower and fan of your writing and while we may occasionally disagree, I have always found your input to be thought provoking and an always welcome component of a constructive conversation regarding the direction of the United States. I can't say much of the same for MSNBC (or cable news in general). The truth is, there isn't room in the propaganda market for the opinions of a man of your integrity and anyone of sense can determine immediately that this is more telling about the ideological purists at MSNBC than it is about your stellar career. I look forward to your future insights - keep fighting, Pat!
I'm not surprised, but I am saddened. It's a sorry day for freedom of speech in this country, to say nothing of free thought. I voted for you in the NH primary and I would, again. You speak the truth but the truth is not popular, today, in our Polyanna "everything-everyone-does-is-good" society. There are those who will shut you off and shut you down if you dare to have your own opinions, much less the nerve to express them [:-(
Always enjoy your discussions
DearPat, I have always appreciated your opinions and the way you explain them. I am a liberal. When you speak from your experience in politics and history, you always have unfailingly been richly informative. Thank you.
We need Counter Balance to Liberal Nazism
Dear Pat, knowing that you were fired due to pressure by the extreme left base on your book that points out the truth of liberal values wrecking the way we were raised and brought up and leading to us being the new apartheid; we need more people like you to stand up and fight against liberal nazism, the new ideological evil that will destroy all of humanity. Please do something about the Liberal Nazism ideology in America.
Sorry to see you go.
I am a staunch liberal, but I appreciated your views and your loyalty to your party. MSNBC did you wrong by this and I hope they rue the day. I wasn't a big fan of yours through the years, but your time on MSNBC changed my mind about you. I didn't agree with you but I respected your right to speak your mind, and you were always fair. I never got the feeling your were racist in any way. And now we are stuck with Michael Steele who doesn't seem to care about the party as much as you did. Farewell, I hope to see you again soon.
First Ammendment Blasphemy
First, Pat you are among the rare as your straight-forward cogent line of thinking is truly accurate. Unfortunately, many Americans fall into the PC trap and will not publicly concur - I find this cowardly.
It is evident that the Pelosi/Reid left fanatics are trying to systematically squeeze you out. This is based on fear and opposition to your visionary perspective. Herein lies a dangerous position and one which is gaining momentum. It is time that God fearing Christians must unite and promote the cause towards truth and dislosure in media and fight against the evil left and their agenda of censorship. May God Bless you and provide you with the strength and knowledge to continue the fight with more vigor than ever!
Yo Pat...You are THE BEST - You are TOO great for MSNBC - they are the loser - You are a winner!! Wherever You are - I'm listening!! and learning!!! and reading!!! Don't give up on us - your wisdom and wit are part of the fabric of America
Thank you for standing firm!
Pat, I stand with you in the fight to protect our freedoms and the saving of our great Nation. Your refusal to sacrifice the convictions you hold dear speaks volume. You did not forsake Him in front of men, and rest assured He will not forsake you. Live for the voice of Him saying, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We are praying for peace, strength and blessings for you.
In the process of reading SUICIDE OF A SUPER-POWER. Extremely well done and I congratulate Mr.Buchanan. Publication of this book was well worth being fired from MSNBC. Now, they will surely become the great unwatched network. I especially enjoyed the quote by Pope John Paul II--A nation that kills its children is a nation without hope. Also, saw you recently on Hannity. Again, thanks for writing such an excellent book.
Keep telling the truth Patrick. We all love you and now there is not one good reason to ever watch MSLSD again.
This says something about the liberals and actually how really liberal their are not. Everyone is entitled to their opinion unless they disagree with you!
May the road rise up to you Patrick!
"Keep the faith"
I have no great words anyone will remember. I'm just a former ABC News VP who still believes in free speech, fair mindedness, freedom to speak whatever. I have not always agreed with Pat -- BUT, I will forever defend his right to say 'it.' Whatever it is. I'm not at all happy with MSNBC's treatment of Pat. It smacks of ... well, I'll let better writers craft a line. For me, it smacks of a not to subtle shuttle of a right wing sounding guy who just doesn't fit the MSNBC model of sponsors, bill payers. In short - it stinks. Big time! It's not so subtle blacklisting...the likes of which we haven't seen since the 60's.
I'm just a little guy but-- I hope the big guys rally before they get stampeded by the money guys who are only interested in what can sell.
Pat -- bed well, stay strong and may the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand.
Direction in Life
Hello Pat, I generally skim through articles when reading but I can never tear myself away from one of your articles. The inability nowadays to disagree with someone yet still have an agreeable conversation is absurd. You showed me to create logical, factual based arguments. Mostly though, you showed me that sometimes you will get demonized for it but to not lose sight of your goal. God Bless!
Let's go back to "GO"
Let's go under the issues and the status quo, down to the roots and template of our nation — the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
Let's have the U S government focus always first, foremost, and primarily on its top obligations — to keep us individually and collectively
with all legislation and programs subject to these PRIMARY governing principles.
Insidious, gradual departures from these simple principles have brought us down to where we are. Let's go back to where we were.
Being fired from MSNBC is like being thrown off a sinking ship. Congratulations! I hope Suicide of a Super Power will wake people up to what is being taken from us. I put a link to it in my website. Hope it helps.
I have been reading and watching you in CNN first and MSNBC later since the time I came to this country twenty years ago and always, as a catholic, I was impressed by your courage and your capacity to tell things by their name. Having come from a very authoritarian society, I have loved your sense of freedom to tell people what you thought about issues when others try to avoid them and even if one may disagree with you. Thanks you for your witness. I hope that the direction of this country is not what you are predicting but it seems that, in many ways, you have been not only a journalist but a prophet. I will miss you
Que Dios te bendiga Pat.
I have always regarded you as cut from the same cloth as Solzhenitsen. I am certain that you will use your time in exile wisely and productively. Those responsible at MSNBC can look forward to a little pat on the head from Joseph Stalin when they get to where they are going.
Truly your friend
I Hate Anti-Intellectualism - Whether From the Right or Left
I am so far left it would make your head spin and seldom have I agreed in the slightest with the theses of your books. However, disagreement aside, I have always enjoyed hearing you explain the thought behind those theses. Further, I have always thoroughly enjoyed your commentary and analysis (and sense of humor) - beginning back in the "Crossfire" days and most recently on MSNBC.
I find this entire episode regarding your status very distasteful. I loath Fox and their complete lack of objectivity and refusal to present both sides of a question, but apparently, MSNBC is choosing a similar route. I am heartened that several of your former colleagues have come to your defense but the damage has already been done.
I know you view this as censorship from the Left, but I consider it censorship by those (regardless of political orientation) who fear real intellectual discussion and debate.
I look forward to your reappearance on TV (please don't let it be on Fox!) and I plan on making these same feelings known to the those who are pushing for a "pure" ideologogy at MSNBC.
My respect to you
Dear Mr, Buchanan,I am 74 years old Jewish man who came to the USA in 1981 from USSR. Despite of our different view on Israel I respect you very much and believe you are The Last of the Mohicans of American decent journalist. You stay like Gulliver among those political Lilliputians who insult you for saying the truth. Unfortunately, even politician who agree with you inside his/her soul are too cowardly to support you. Now days when the face of MS NBC is demagogue, bully and "a Hero of Crown Heights" Al Sharpton, there is no place to the person like you who call a spade a spade. Now it's the time for petty politician from the President and down. The Lilliputians are the crew of the ship America who are leading her straight to the icebergs.
Please do not allow them to silence you.
With great respect
I have always regarded you as cut from the same cloth as Solzhenitsyn. Keep
the faith. The brigade is with you.
Health to you and your family
Pat, you are not the only one who has fallen from a black list, you\'d be shocked! but this is what happens in a fallen society. Don\'t give up and as much as I know it would be against your better judgment we need for you to be on the air. Please sue for your job back make sure you get a \"good lawyer\" okay, that is the most important the others will just drain you and will deliberately lose your case. But get that job back, even though we know you don\'t want it or need, but we are the ones who need it and you, God has led you to this path and you mustn\'t give up or weaken you must be even stronger than you have been before and you have to keep going at the by throwing the truth in their faces, please so as I suggest, we need you so much Pat, we have nothing and will surely have nothing if we don\'t have you on the airwaves. God Bless and hang in there!
I have read all your books and i really appreciate your intelligence and historical knowledge. I dont agree with you on social issues but respect your perspective as a Catholic. I just dont know why ou blame your censorship on the Left. You and i both know that is BS. The ADL is not the Left! Helen Thomas wasnt silenced from the Left! They arent Left Or Right!
MSNBC apparently has no grasp of the concept of freedom of speech. While I do not always agree with your philosophies. Perhaps if they used the opportunity to begin a meaningful dialogue with you, they would not become more enlightened. Instead they took the low road. you.
Please continue to speak your mind. Share your observations. We are a pretty messed up country. Tribes of every description and I imagine William F. Buckley would have a few choice comments about it all.
Good fortune to you in your next iteration.
NOT SURPRISED AT MSNBC
I have been a BIG fan of yours for many years. I was not totally surprised that MSNBC decided to end their relationship with you. The usual attack\'s on Conservatives has dramatically increased since Obama ascended to the White House. As he said \'we know who you are\'. Pat, like yourself, I am unable to mask my belief\'s and I \'tell it like it is\', often times to my own detriment. You will bounce back because truth can not be silenced.
I am a 61 year old native New Yorker (of Hispanic decent). I worked on Wall Street for 35 years and retired in 2005, due to health issues. I can not believe our great Country is on such a downhill Progressive march. I love the USA and it both saddens and terrifies me. I am a person who rarely takes the time to express my fellings in writing. However, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for your years of expressing what I believe are the sentiments of most American\'s.
Good luck. God bless America.

From your friend Ben Jones
You are a better man than all of those p.c. bullies. Neither the left nor the right will succeed by shouting down free voices.
Your enemies are the real threat to free speech, free thought, and free expression.
Don't give up the ship!!
