Pat Buchanan on Juvenile Crime

Shut down NEA; Hollywood causes moral decay

At Bob Jones University, Buchanan found a receptive audience for his accusation that Hollywood and film producers are a source of moral decay in the nation. “Instead of breaking up Microsoft, why don’t we break up Disney?” he asked. He also said he wants to shut the National Endowment for the Arts.

Columbine shootings due to Hollywood, not guns

Buchanan sees Hollywood, not easy access to weapons, as the dominant factor in the recent Colorado school shootings. “This was about evil in the human heart,” Mr. Buchanan boomed.

Littleton due to poisoned culture declaring “God is dead”

What was it in the upbringing or education of these two boys that failed to instill in their souls a conscience that discerned right from wrong? What was it in our polluted and poisoned culture that suggested that violence, murder, and suicide was a valid expression of their resentment? America got a glimpse of the last stop on that train to hell she boarded decades ago when we declared that God is dead, and that each of us is his or her own god who can make up the rules as we go along.
