MSNBC's Pat Buchanan argues strongly against gay rights in his new book Suicide of a Superpower.

The 72-year-old Buchanan is currently a political commentator on cabler MSNBC's Morning Joe and a regular on The McLaughlin Group, the syndicated half-hour weekly public affairs program broadcast primarily on public television stations.

In Suicide of a Superpower, Buchanan rails against gay rights, in particular the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” and the increasing legalization and acceptance of gay marriage.

On DADT: “Indoctrination of recruits, soldiers and officers into an acceptance of the gay lifestyle will transfer authority over the military, the most respected institution in America, to agents of a deeply resented and widely detested managerial state.”

On marriage equality: “[Judge] Vaughn Walker, a gay federal judge in San Francisco, has ruled that same-sex marriage is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Can anyone believe, this absurd notion of equality was intended by or written into the Constitution by the Congress that produced the 14th Amendment? Although gay marriage has been rejected in 31 states in referenda, judges continue to declare that such unions be treated as marriages. An idea of equality rejected democratically by voters is being imposed dictatorially.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
