Buchanan: Davis Defiance Like When I Urged Nixon To Fight Integration
Pat Buchanan likens Kim Davis’s defiance of a court order to his advice to Richard Nixon to defy a court order on desegregation.
“When I was in the Nixon White House, I urged the president to defy court orders mandating court-ordered busing from counties into cities, which were tearing apart cities and towns,” Buchanan said. “(I told Nixon to) defy the court and work with the Congress of the United States to really circumscribe the jurisdiction of the court under Article III, Section II of the Constitution.”
“In other words, it would be a constitutional confrontation, you’re exactly right,” he continued. “I don’t disagree with that, if you believe your position is correct.”
