The modus operandi of these thought police… is to brand as racists and anti-Semites any writer who dares to venture outside the narrow corral in which they seek to confine debate. All the while prattling about their love of dissent and devotion to the First Amendment, they seek systematically to silence and censor dissent.

Without a hearing, they smear and stigmatize as racist, homophobic, or anti-Semitic any who contradict what George Orwell once called their “smelly little orthodoxies.” They then demand that the heretic recant, grovel, apologize, and pledge to go forth and sin no more.

Defy them, and they will go after the network where you work, the newspapers that carry your column, the conventions that invite you to speak. If all else fails, they go after the advertisers.

~ Conservative Pat Buchanan, describing why MSNBC fired him in his February 16 column, “Blacklisted but not beaten.”  Buchanan could easily have been describing how Planned Parenthood and the media attempted to blacklist Susan G. Komen for the Cure for dissenting. On a larger scale Buchanan could have been describing how liberals and the media attempt to silence pro-lifers. They are all members of the same ideological cartel.
