QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“‘Vaccinate your kids and it’s over!’ say the people who told you to stay home for 15 days and it’s over, wear a mask and it’s over, get vaccinated and it’s over, etc.”
Jimmy Failla

“It was never just tax the rich. Why do you think they want to monitor personal banks accounts with just $600?”
Senator Marsha Blackburn

“It kind of blows my mind that the Biden Administration is about to start monitoring all of our bank accounts and somehow this isn’t a major topic of conversation even on the right. The vaccine mandates are bad. This is worse. A lot worse.”
Matt Walsh

“Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems. We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent. We would instead have had a much worse problem.” Jason Furman, former chairman of Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers

“According to this administration, we must choose between massive inflation, shipping bottlenecks, and huge numbers of Americans dropping out of the workforce…or 10% unemployment. Good midterm messaging there.”
Ben Shapiro

“When people ask me, ‘If you ruled the world, what one thing would you do?’ — I think about that a lot.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

“I think a lot of times people don’t have a really positive image of the government.”
First Lady Jill Biden

“The Build Back Better [legislation] is three baskets: It’s climate … health, jobs, security, and moral responsibility.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (huh?)

“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 and ’24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”
Donald Trump

“Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a worldview. When you realize that, you’ll realize why it should be vigorously opposed. CRT isn’t about teaching history (as many of its proponents would have you believe), it’s about subjectively re-prosecuting history through a Marxist teleology.”
Darrell B. Harrison

“The problem with trying to equalize is that you can usually only equalize downward.”
Thomas Sowell

“Pretty sure never once in history has someone read a person’s announced pronouns in an email signature and thought ‘wow, so glad they did that, really helpful and necessary.’”
Buck Sexton

“VP Kamala Harris’s parents were from India and Jamaica. The racist Democrat Party refers to her as ‘African American,’ but she is every bit as much ‘Asian American.’ Why?”
Mark Alexander

“Not surprisingly, President Biden took a cheap shot at Columbus in his official White House proclamation. It condemned the ‘painful history of wrongs and atrocities that many European explorers inflicted on Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities’ and the ‘wave of devastation,’ including ‘the introduction and spread of disease.’ Interestingly, whenever conservatives express concerns about illegal aliens spreading diseases, the left immediately accuses them of ‘xenophobia.’”
Gary Bauer

“Sadly, data from the Department of Education indicates a majority of fourth graders don’t know why Europeans sought new trade routes in the 1400s, and only 8 percent have a full understanding of how Native Americans were impacted by European colonists. Further, only 34 percent can identify Jamestown as the first English colony, and fewer than 33 percent of eighth graders know why we fought England during the Revolutionary War. We have a good deal of catching up to do and erasing pivotal figures such as Christopher Columbus will only put us further behind. Instead of rewriting history, we should make every effort to study it.”
Ambassador Callista L. Gingrich and Speaker Newt Gingrich

“I’m not in the least bit for defunding the police. Police work is, aside from all the negativity around it, it is very necessary for us to have them and most of them are guys that are doing their job. They’re going about their day-to-day jobs.”
Actor Morgan Freeman

“I think this [harassment toward Senator Kyrsten Sinema] is outrageous. You may not like the politics, but when this s*** starts to happen, I don’t know where the safe space is in America. And I don’t know where it ends.”
Bill Maher

“Parents: keep protesting your school’s curriculum. The DOJ can’t do anything about it, and they’re trying to intimidate you. Don’t listen to them.”
Congressman Dan Crenshaw

“You don’t have to go back too far to find German people who acted exactly as these protesters did. Early in the Nazi era they [stormtroopers] would go into where people were congregating and shout them down, and make sure no other voices could be heard except the Nazis. That’s how you lose dialogue. That’s how you lose a First Amendment. That’s how you welcome in totalitarianism.

“It’s incredibly scary. If we lose the ability to distinguish between people rallying and expressing their own voice, and intimidation and bullying and shutting down the voices of others. I mean, you don’t have to go back too far to find German people who acted exactly as these protesters did.

“It’s just so completely inappropriate, walking into a bathroom. But people shouting down Jews? We don’t have to go back a century to see where that leads.”

Rabbi Yakkov Menken, managing director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, commenting on the left-wing protesters who followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) into a bathroom to denounce her opposition to the high price tag of the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better bill
