Pat Buchanan is someone who has genuinely spoken blunt truth to blunt power for years, which is one of the reasons he's not to everybody's liking. He is to mine however, which is why he appears once again on my Sun News TV show, The Arena, Monday night.Most of what Pat Buchanan says about the US is also true for Canada. And his prognosis is by no means optimistic.
"The transformation has been dramatic and unique in our history," he says, "and the reason America has and will lose its greatness is that we are no longer unified. Anybody can become a good American, coming from anywhere in the world. But whereas in the past we asked them to become American, now we encourage America to become like them."
No pause, but straight into the argument. "We've given away what made us one. Faith, symbols of unity, the European, overwhelmingly Christian heritage of the majority who were and made the country. People could be who and what they liked, but they had to know what the national core values and identity were. No longer."
