The McCain campaign is denying reports that Sarah Palin was a supporter of Pat Buchanan in the 90’s, but Buchanan himself says that Palin “was a brigadier in 1996 as was her husband… they were at a fundraiser for me, she’s a terrific gal.”
Why is this significant? Well, let’s look at what Buchanan has said about women:
- “The rise of women to power in a civilization is very often the mark of its decline.” – On “The McLaughlin Group”, July 2007
- “In short, the rise of feminism spells the death of the nation and end of the West.” – in his book “Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization” (p 42)
- “Rail as they will against ‘discrimination,’ women are simply not endowed by nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism…The momma bird builds the nest. So it was, so it ever shall be.” – Washington Times, Nov. 1983
Buchanan is also no friend to Jewish voters, having praised Hitler for his “great courage”.
