Protests have gone on for years about Buchanan’s statements and perceived racism. Buchanan maintains that this is all a conspiracy by the left to have him ousted. And, there were coordinated and concerted efforts to petition and pressure MSNBC to can him.

Most who are happy to see him go can recite certain statements that Buchanan has made over the years, including:
