Buchanan: “This has been a country built, basicailly, by white folks.”

Here is the video of Pat Buchanan claiming that “this has been a country built, basically, by white folks.”  The video is a little long and he makes the comment in the beginning but it’s definitely worth watching all the way through to hear all of what Maddow and Buchanan have to say.

This is Rachel Maddow’s response.  She is very careful to make it clear that she is simply fact checking Buchanan’s statement rather than picking a fight while he is not present.

The video shows a photo of a column written by Buchanan titled “How to Handle Sonia.  You can read it here.

This is Colbert’s response.  He starts discussing the issue around 3:30.



  1. Hello, overt racism, meet America. It is irratating ad nauseum to see so much ignorance on the news. The very least a pundit can do is fact check his/her own statements. Doesn’t Buchanan realize such blatantly untrue claims make him lose credibility?
