Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Brandon Johnson, Dennis Prager, Cal Thomas, and more.

Race Bait

“Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted democratically ran cities. And quite frankly, they’ve been very intentional about going after democratically ran cities that are led by people of color. And their whole motivation is to create disruption and chaos. … They’re still mad that a black man is free in this country.” —Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson

Re: The Left

“Left wingers in sports are furious that little kids dress up like Indians at football games, but think it’s brave and heroic for grown men to dress up like women and win women’s sports championships. Not satire. This is what they believe.” —Clay Travis

“How, pray tell, is anyone supposed to make progress if race-hustlers … never forgive and keep making new accusations no matter what?” —Nate Jackson

“If JFK were alive today and he were espousing the ideas of his 1,000-day presidency, he would be a Republican. JFK was a staunch Cold War anti-communist/socialist. He espoused lower tax rates, was pro-life, served our country in uniform valiantly, was patriotic, was a hawk on protecting First Amendment civil liberties, and he and his brother, who served as attorney general, took on union and government corruption. Not many Democratic leaders today check any of these boxes.” —Stephen Moore

“There are a few things that define the modern progressive movement. It is overwhelmingly committed to abortion. It believes America is evil, socialism is good and it is increasingly secular.” —Gary Bauer

For the Record

“Since World War II, most American Jews have believed that the more secular American society is, the more secure their status. This has been, as I have argued all of my life, a colossal error. Indeed, it may turn out to be a fatal error. With the outburst of unprecedented levels of antisemitism, American Jews are living the famous warning: ‘Beware what you wish for; you just may get it.’” —Dennis Prager

“Too many have exchanged the power that comes with faith for temporal power that quickly fades away.” —Cal Thomas

Political Futures

“One question critical to the GOP’s chances next year is still open, and the primaries will help answer it: Can Republicans get out the vote? Polls testify to Donald Trump’s popularity with the base. What they don’t show is whether he has the campaign organization to turn his lead on paper into an equally conclusive result when the ballots are counted.” —Daniel McCarthy

“The path to the nomination for anyone other than Trump is exceedingly narrow. Yet if Trump is annoyed that he has to fight for the nomination at all, and others are dismayed that voters won’t give them a chance, Republicans are still better off than the Democrats. The GOP will test Trump before it nominates him again — but no one dares test Joe Biden, because Democrats know he would fail.” —Daniel McCarthy
