QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“People will wear a mask everywhere for a whole year because they’re afraid of a disease but won’t lay off the fast food and lose a few pounds. The latter will do much more to preserve your health. But sure, you’re ‘health conscious’ with that mask and all that extra body fat.”
Matt Walsh

“Who are the groups that we’re targeting on the vaccination? Youthful and the doubtful. … Maybe you go home and kiss your grandmother and wind up killing your grandmother.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo

“He (Cuomo) would know — both about kissing people and killing grandparents.”
Janice Dean

“Anybody making less than $400,000 a year will not pay a single penny in taxes.”
Joe Biden, who probably meant to say “will not pay a single penny more in taxes.”

“Are there individuals who are racist? Of course, but that doesn’t make the nation racist any more than having criminals among us makes us a criminal nation.”
Cal Thomas

“If you’re looking for institutional racism, it exists within Critical Race Theory. Ban it. At every level. It is the new Jim Crow.”
Candace Owens

“[Tim] Scott’s most controversial statement, allegedly, was to contend that, ‘America is not a racist country.’ … Yet, the very next morning, when asked by ABC News about Scott’s comments, Vice President Kamala Harris said: ‘I don’t think America is a racist country, but we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today.’ It’s one thing to see flagrant double standards in politics, and another thing to hear two people say the same thing within 24 hours and be treated completely differently.”
David Harsanyi

“The left devotes tremendous resources to smearing and defeating any female and minority Republicans. They do their best to destroy conservative minority candidates, and then attack the GOP for being ‘too white.’ The left claims to stand for diversity. But it can’t stand diversity of thought. The intolerant, totalitarian left increasingly demands that everyone must think, speak, act and vote the same way.”
Gary Bauer

“I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
“Caitlyn” (Bruce) Jenner

“Only about a quarter of Americans (23%) think the country has become more united since Biden took office.”
ABC News

“Facebook’s Oversight Board says they were right to suspend Trump because he violated their rule ‘prohibiting praise or support of people engaged in violence.’ Last year, nearly the entire media and Democratic Party praised people engaged in the most costly riots in US history.”
Ben Shapiro

“Imagine what would have happened in this country without brave Republican governors. We’d probably still all be locked down. Thank god for federalism. It allows us to have 50 state laboratories & to see big state govs like DeSantis in Florida & Abbott in Texas were correct.”
Clay Travis

“[Democrats] are in fact defunding the police by demoralizing the police. As we have previously reported, cities across the country are reporting massive police resignations and retirements. Meanwhile, recruitment of new officers is nearly impossible. Why? Because many of our elites, including the president, constantly claim that American law enforcement is racist. Hollywood celebrities compare our police to Nazis. Millionaire athletes call our police pigs. Now the Biden Justice Department is launching investigations of entire police departments. Would you stay in a job where you risked your life every day only to be called a racist, a Nazi and a pig? Make no mistake about it: There is a war against cops in America. Some on the left are open about it. They demand we get rid of the police. Others claim they disagree. But they use rhetoric and push policies that will result in only one logical outcome — more crime and fewer police to protect you.”
Gary Bauer

“If the Right gives up the gender fight, then that’s it. It’s over. Once we’ve surrendered reality itself, what else is there to fight for? Tax cuts? I will die on this hill. If this hill is lost, there are none worth keeping after it and nobody left to fight for them anyway.”
Matt Walsh

“Redefining language is nothing new for the left. When they can’t win public opinion with the truth, they change the meanings of words to trick the public into their way of thinking. Examples abound. Bill Clinton famously called taxes ‘contributions’ and talked about how the government needed more of them from you. But if you actually treated them like contributions and decided that they were voluntary, armed IRS agents would knock on your door and put a lien on your home. And when it comes to abortion, there’s no such thing as a baby growing inside her mother’s womb anymore; it’s now called a ‘product of conception.’ That’s the left’s way of pretending that abortion isn’t the destruction of human life. … And what about when a politician tells you that they’re cutting spending? In typical Washington-speak, spending cuts aren’t actually cuts in spending but cuts to increases in spending. So they’re still spending more money than they did before — just not as much as they wanted. … The American Jobs Plan is being used as a Trojan horse to hide an agenda that would cost American families, chase jobs out of the country, add trillions to the debt, and concentrate more power with the federal government.”
Kay C. James

“It should come as no surprise when young people raised by helicopter parents are hoodwinked by the false promises of socialism — promises such as free college tuition, free health care and student debt forgiveness. Is it any wonder young people who have never been required to work refuse to get jobs, even though most employers have ‘Help Wanted’ signs in their windows, are paying well above minimum wage and are offering hiring bonuses? Their parents conditioned them to expect to receive everything they might want without having to work for it. Pandering politicians in the Democratic Party reinforce this unhealthy perspective by promising to pick up where the parents left off. Young people who don’t learn personal responsibility and accountability in the home are sitting ducks for the false promises of socialist ideologues. Unprepared, thoroughly indoctrinated young people who choose socialism over capitalism are just doing what their parents taught them to do.”
Oliver North and David Goetsch
