Protest all you want Pat Buchanan. You stepped into the insular world of liberals and were treated like any non-member – with contempt.
You were kicked to the curb to satisfy the political/personal desires of those progressives around you at CNN.
If you didn’t see this coming you have only yourself to blame.
You can not play middleman in group of lefties. They hate anyone with a differing point of view and it is set in their molecular level to rid any habitat under their control of known opposition, even if you regularly took shots at Republicans and conservatives.
Progressives in a group who control an asset as valuable as CNN can not give shelter to opinions they deem evil. Not for very long. It would be like asking them to hold their breath ontil you decided to leave.
Come on now. You knew this.
