Buckley is a mass of put on affectations. Just look at him. All that eye poping and pretentious "I'm finding it hard to saty awake" crap. If you listen to his part of the debate the simple criticism is that he did not even have the decency to address the debate subject. His inherited superiority was front and centre and his humanity nowhere to be seen.

WFB was a pedophilic dolt. Baldwin, was eloquent in his oratory. Nothing racial about this debate - just two men. One was brilliant the other, edited a GOP rag. This sick nation needs more oratory from men like Baldwin. Not another WFB like Trump-O the clown or Clinton.

You can see the cognitive dissonance at work in W. Buckley's facial expressions towards hearing Baldwin's words of truth/reality, NOT conjecture......

Nothing like some good old white denial! Lol
Everything that James Baldwin said in that speech is right. America has built its civilization at the expense of my black people, and most American whites go around the world with a guilt complex to say that it never happened. Well, I as a black expat working here in Asia will tell all people around the world that America has raped the black people. That is why even as a black Canadian I can exercise my ability to promote anti-Americanism everywhere in the world.

Segregation, The Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, The failure of the Reconstruction Era, the murder of Emit Till, Lynching , The Civil Rights movement were all mythical?
