QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Mr. President, I hope you see this. … I’d have a sit-down and I’ll explain the facts to you so you can understand them. If he reached out, I’d be happy to tell him my side of the story of what happened.”
Kyle Rittenhouse says that he’s willing to meet with President Joe Biden in order to clear up any misconceptions surrounding the murder trial in which he was acquitted on all charges

“I understand, and we all understand, how people do not like to be told what to do. They wanna make their own choice and their own free will. I get that and I respect that. But these are unusual times, and you can’t think only of yourself and your own personal opinion. … I would prefer, and we all would prefer, that people would be voluntarily getting vaccinated, but if they’re not gonna do that, sometimes you’ve gotta do things that are unpopular, but that clearly supersede individual choices.”
Anthony Fauci

“Screw … all who are all about hiding behind religious exemptions because they don’t want anybody to tell them what to do. … [They] deserve whatever comes their way, including losing jobs, getting sick, and perhaps dying from this virus. … I don’t know why the GOP doesn’t just take those guns they profess to love so much and just start shooting all of their constituents who think this way. It would be quicker and ultimately safer than putting me and my friends and family at risk.”
National Education Association (NEA) board member Mollie Paige Mumau

“My office is not allowed to use ‘Latinx’ in official communications. When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use. It is a vicious circle of confirmation bias.”
Democrat Congressman Ruben Gallego

“The rapidly deteriorating state of law and order has people asking, ‘What is happening to our country?’ The answer is simple: We are all reaping what progressives have sewn by devaluing human life. A tragic consequence of the devaluation of human life is the culture of death now pervading American society. When our political leaders legalize the murder of innocent, unborn children, should anyone really be surprised when murder becomes mundane?”
Oliver North & David Goetsch

“If the 2008 Beijing Games were ill-advised, next year’s Winter Olympics are a complete travesty. The atrocities in Xinjiang province are a matter of public record and the quashing of Hong Kong proceeds apace. No one who crosses the regime is safe from imprisonment or worse. China openly menaces Taiwan with an invasion. Indeed, China could conceivably be in a shooting war with the United States within a year or two of using the presence of our athletes, among others, to enhance the rule of its dictator-for-life. … The [International Olympic Committee] could have taken an off-ramp from these games at any point. Instead, its attitude is going to be, ‘Enjoy the snowboarding, never mind the concentration camps.’”
Rich Lowry

“I’m disappointed that they’re not doing more to take safety and make it a priority.”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blaming violent smash-and-grab robberies on store owners

“In 2020, Trump presided over a worst-in-world pandemic response that caused hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths; held a superspreader event at the White House and got covid-19 himself; praised QAnon adherents; embraced violent white supremacists; waged a racist campaign against Black Lives Matter demonstrators; attempted to discredit mail-in voting; and refused to accept his defeat in a free and fair election, leading eventually to the violence of Jan. 6 and causing tens of millions to accept the ‘big lie,’ the worst of more than 30,000 he told in office. And yet Trump got press coverage as favorable as, or better than, Biden is getting today.”
Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. WTH is she smoking?

“We sure moved fast from ‘mask up to protect the elderly when no vaccine is available’ to ‘give your five-year-old a shot or you can’t take her to a restaurant.’”
Ben Shapiro

“I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest.”
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib

“She’s a perfect example of why we shouldn’t forgive student loans. She makes 175,000 a year and wants the tax payer to assume her debts? No, pay your bills you deadbeat. Student loan forgiveness is upper class welfare.”
Matt Walsh

“This year is not going to be as big as years in the past. If you lived before Pearl Harbor, you would feel more comfortable going back to the Revolutionary War era than you would moving to the era now.  One solider that died represents a mom, and a dad and a sibling back home. I want people to not forget what’s happening with those left behind. I want people to know that war affects everyone.”
National Park Service program specialist Emily Pruett on the 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor

“A new Wall Street Journal poll contains some big news. Hispanic voters have moved significantly to the right, and are now evenly split in their support between the two parties heading into the 2022 elections. That’s great news, but here’s my concern: The GOP party establishment and its corporate wing will misread this news and argue that we need to be more open to mass immigration. That would be a huge mistake! … Contrary to the ‘conventional wisdom,’ we are seeing growing Hispanic support at the very time we are insisting on stopping illegal immigration.”
Gary Bauer

“Since wealth is the only thing that can cure poverty, you might think that the left would be as obsessed with the creation of wealth as they are with the redistribution of wealth. But you would be wrong.”
Thomas Sowell
