Buckley vs. Vidal: When Debate Became Bloodsport
William F. Buckley: Who was he, really?

There is much more in the three way discussion above by conservatives Peter Brimelow, Paul Gottfried, and Joseph Ford Cotto which puts new light upon Buckley’s possible faux Catholicism, and the infamous Gore Vidal/William F. Buckley live fight on ABC national TV during coverage of the 1968 presidential conventions: was Buckley, like Vidal, indeed gay as was NR publisher William Rusher, and close Buckley tool, Marvin Liebman, who created such Buckleyite front groups as Aid Refugee Chinese Intellectuals, the American Emergency Committee for Tibetan Refugees, the American-Asian Educational Exchange, the American African Affairs Association, the American Committee for Aid to Katanga Freedom Fighters, and the World Anti-Communist League? In addition, Liebman was an early supporter and co-founder of Buckley’s Young Americans for Freedom and the American Conservative Union. Among his later notable clients were: the Friends of Free China, the Friends of Jim Buckley, the Committee of Single Taxpayers, the American-Chilean Council, the Ad Hoc Citizens Legal Defense Fund for the FBI, Firing Line, and Covenant House.
