In this video clip, Pat Buchanan stultifies Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen by posing a simple question as to why Cohen thinks it rancid that whites in West Virginia voted for Hillary (69%-23%) but has nothing disapproving to say about blacks voting for Obama in Philadelphia (92%-8%), or everywhere else by almost the same overwhelming margin, for that matter.
Buchanan's point is not novel in this area of the blogosphere. Blacks are far more clannish than whites are. But Cohen's visible discomfort makes the video worth watching. Near the end of the clip, when Buchanan jocularly offers Cohen a studio mug, a rattled Cohen says of the segment, "I didn't have such a good time." Clearly Cohen is not used to being challenged, even in the polite and measured way that is a staple of Buchanan's presentation, when he embraces such a blatant double standard.
As the Inductivist points out, the video is also remarkable in the making of an argument that whites should be able to vote for other whites in solidarity just as every other identity interest does.
