“Isn’t it interesting that the president, Shawn Fain, has a name very much like ‘Sinn Fein’? Perhaps there’s a connection…” —North Carolina
“Interesting piece, especially regarding ‘instituting socialized medicine.’ I received an email the other day about Gavin Newsom’s move to inflict a state-run, single-payer healthcare system on all Californians, including veterans and Medicare patients. From the way it was written, he plans to eliminate every and all medical insurance from the state. Is Newsom a closet DSA mole? Or just your average, everyday leftist mole?” —California
“Democrat Socialists of America founding member Maurice Isserman has cut ties with the group because of its support for Hamas terrorists. Good for him — a blind squirrel has found a nut. But behold the simplicity of the leftist mind: Everything on the Right is bad, therefore anything bad in the world must represent the Right. What bothers him isn’t that Hamas targets civilians or kidnaps women, children, and the elderly or beheads babies; it’s the unavoidable ‘fact’ that such evil proves that Hamas must be (in his words) ‘right-wing’ terrorists.” —Georgia
“I don’t think people understand how bad the world would be without journalists.” —WaPo’s Taylor Lorenz
“I guess it would be pretty much as bad as what we have now: bloated and intrusive government, designed and operated by corrupt, incompetent, and unaccountable bureaucrats put in power by a woefully uninformed populace who were made that way by sycophants dedicated to providing them only one side of most stories that are filtered through the propaganda office of the ruling party. If only we did have more actual journalists who had a louder voice.” —Georgia
“I think most, if not all, of these people being ‘reassigned’ to non-jobs were hired and assigned by their former employers to write according to that particular corporation’s political views, and because they’ve been outed they now pay the price for unquestioning fealty to one point of view. Leftist colleges are wising up, these poor folk are wising up, and, with a bit of luck and a LOT of the grace of God, media will wise up.” —California
“The only recourse is to stay the course. Texas, the rest of the border states, and the nation will not get any relief from our current Senate or administration. The time for compromise is long over. It is time to vote the bums out.” —Washington
Re: The Trump Enigma
“Of course, Biden will not be the candidate — that’s a definite. I cannot understand why the Republicans think they are running against him. It’s the leftist agenda they should be running against, which the current puppets, Biden and Harris, have nothing to do with other than being the spokespersons. Then the Left will announce the new puppets soon, maybe April or May, and the media will queue the campaign to sell them to the uninformed/misinformed electorate.” —Florida
