9. Buchanan is also a Holocaust denier and called for the Central Park Five to be lynched.

Buchanan is a white supremacist who has pushed virulently racist rhetoric.

Buchanan said that the United States is “committing suicide” by “not reproducing itself” while “Asian, African, and Latin American children come to inherit the estate.”

Buchanan has repeatedly referred to undocumented immigrants as invaders. His 2006 book is titled State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America. He said on Fox News: “You've got a wholesale invasion, the greatest invasion in human history, coming across your southern border, changing the composition and character of your country.”

Buchanan declined to disavow the idea that people of color have inferior genes compared to white people when pressed by a radio host. And as a Nixon aide, The Boston Globe reported, Buchanan “suggested in a memo to President Nixon that efforts to integrate the U.S. might only result in 'perpetual friction' because blacks and the poor may be genetically inferior to middle-class whites.”

Buchanan has repeatedly defended Adolf Hitler, including claiming that he was “an individual of great courage” and that he didn’t want war. He also complained that the Supreme Court had too many Jewish justices after Eleana Kagan was nominated to the court.

Buchanan defended Bob Jones University's ban on interracial dating (the prohibition was removed in 2000).

Buchanan was asked if he had a problem with California becoming “majority Hispanic, majority Latino.” He replied: “Yes, I do. Yes, I do. If their -- because of the Mexican situation, Mexico has a claim on this country.” He also complained that immigration would turn the country into “a polyglot boarding house for the world, a tangle of minosquabbling rities." He additionally warned against the country becoming “multiracial, multicultural, multiethnic,” explaining: “I prefer the kind -- I grew up in a different country.”

Buchanan said that “in a way, both sides were right” during the Civil War.

Buchanan falsely claimed that “this has been a country built, basically, by white folks” and that only “white males” died at the battles at Gettysburg and Normandy.

Buchanan said that “America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. … We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?”
