Dunetz notes that Buchanan challenged the historical record of the Holocaust. Of the thousands of Jews who were gassed to death by diesel exhaust at Treblinka, he wrote,
“Diesel engines do not emit enough carbon monoxide to kill anybody.” in the New Republic, 10/22/90.
“Of course Carbon monoxide emitted by diesel engines is enough to asphyxiate people when they are crammed by the hundreds into thirteen-foot chambers. And from July 1942 through November 1943, the Germans killed between 870,000 and 925,000 Jews at Treblinka. Perhaps the editors of Rasmussen should run a poll asking all those dead Jews how they were killed.”
And, Buchanan’s position on Jews, apparently, is that the Jews are to blame for everything wrong in the world.
Buchanan: The Jews control foreign policy
In a separate chapter criticizing the power of numerous American ethnic groups over foreign policy, Mr. Buchanan writes, ”After World War II, Jewish influence over foreign policy became almost an obsession with American leaders.”
Buchanan: There are too many Jews on the Supreme Court
“If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is that the Democrats idea of diversity? WND May 13, 2010
Buchanan: There are too many Jews in the U.S. Senate
“If you want to know ethnicity and power in the United States Senate, 13 members of the Senate are Jewish folks who are from 2 percent of the population. That is where real power is at..” The McLaughlin Group, Feb. 2, 2007.
Buchanan: Hillary Clinton is a spy for Israel
On the eve of yesterday’s New Hampshire primary, an article accusing Hillary Clinton of spying for Israel turned up on the World Wide Web site of conservative candidate Pat Buchanan. Political writer Brock Meeks exposed the existence of the article late Monday in Campaign Dispatch, his online column that appears on the Web in the Netizen section of HotWired Meeks also alerted ABC-TV’s Jeff Greenfield, who aired the story Monday on “Nightline.”
Buchanan the Jews pushed the U.S. into the first Gulf War:
“There are only two groups that are beating the drums for war in the Middle East – the Israeli Defense Ministry and its amen corner in the United States,” he asserted on TV’s “McLaughlin Group.” While dozens of powerful pundit and policy voices advocated war with Iraq, Buchanan felt the need to single out four saber-rattlers — A.M. Rosenthal, Richard Perle, Charles Krauthammer and Henry Kissinger — all Jews.
Here again Buchanan’s apparent prejudices about Jews seemed to blind him to the facts. On the key January 1991 Capitol Hill vote authorizing war in the Gulf, most Jewish members of Congress voted no — on Buchanan’s side, not Kissinger’s.
Buchanan the Jews pushed the U.S. into the second Gulf War:
In Buchanan’s essay “Whose War” he blames the Iraq war on a bunch of mostly Jewish public figures such as Bill Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz, Max Boot, and Richard Perle. Buchanan charges those public figures with “colluding with Israel to ignite wars and destroy the Oslo Accords. We charge them with deliberately damaging U.S. relations with every state in the Arab world that defies Israel or supports the Palestinian people’s right to a homeland of their own.” He goes on to say, “For whose benefit these endless wars in a region that holds nothing vital to America save oil, which the Arabs must sell us to survive? Who would benefit from a war of civilizations between the West and Islam? Answer: one nation, one leader, one party. Israel, Sharon, Likud.” The American Conservative “Whose War?, A neoconservative clique seeks to ensnare our country in a series of wars that are not in America’s interest. by Patrick J. Buchanan, March 24, 2003 issue”
Truth be told Sharon warned Bush #43 not to invade Iraq. He correctly predicted that Saddam was the only check on Iran and once he was removed the rogue regime would become a major regional power.
Buchanan apparently also had a Holocaust denial forum until it was exposed.
