Yep, Pat Buchanan is officially out as a commentator for MSNBC, after being suspended from the network for controversial statements in his most recent book.
The network, in a statement, says it’s severed ties with the conservative icon and former presidential candidate:
“After ten years, we’ve parted ways with Pat Buchanan. We wish him well.”
Buchanan was suspended from MSNBC following the publication of “Suicide of a Superpower,” with eye-catching chapter titles like “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America.” Some detractors deemed the book racist and anti-Semitic, though Buchanan denied the allegations.
In a column he wrote on Thursday, Buchanan responded to his detractors thusly:
“All the while prattling about their love of dissent and devotion to the First Amendment, they seek systematically to silence and censor dissent.”
