Pat Buchanan’s has a new book called Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?
Buchanan has a chapter on the end of White America discussing the decline of whites as a percentage of the total U.S. population. Liberals and even many so-called conservatives have tried to argue that this is a good thing but Buchanan points out that far from being an American ideal, the Founders and all prominent Americans from Washington to Lincoln through Dwight Eisenhower all praised American homogeneity and had racial views on blacks that would be considered “white supremacist” today. When it comes to the issue of race and intelligence he points out that as most kids do not have the athletic ability to play high school sports, or the musical ability to play in the band, or the verbal ability to excel in the debate, not every child has the academic ability to do high school work.
