Buchanan Bemoans Future 'Egalitarian Society'

Pat Buchanan joined Tim Wilmon of the American Family Association today where he warned that the left wants to “convert America into a monstrous replica of the United Nations General Assembly where everyone is equal in every way.” While promoting Suicide of a Superpower, Buchanan lamented that America may become “an egalitarian society” that is part of a vision rejecting what people see as America’s “racist, bigoted, sexist, imperialist, colonialist, homophobic” past:

Wildmon: Why do these folks have such hostility for our traditions and for the Christian religion? Where does this come from?

Buchanan: Well I think it certainly flourished in the 1960s on the campuses, around the mid-1960s, and the ground had been prepared by many in the faculty. The basic feeling on a part of a lot of these people is that the old traditionalist America was racist, bigoted, sexist, imperialist, colonialist, homophobic and every other adjective you can think of, and they look upon that past with detestation. They want to change and alter what was a sort of, basically a Western Christian country, part of the West, part of European civilization, and they want to put an end to that. They want to create a new nation that is of all the races, cultures, creeds of every continent and country on earth and an egalitarian society, and frankly a country that has never before existed. They want to convert America into a monstrous replica of the United Nations General Assembly where everyone is equal in every way, and it’s a utopian idea and I think that it is incompatible with the existence of the country we grew up in. That is what is happening, but there is a deep, ingrained hostility of the country that we were raised in for the reasons that I mentioned.
