Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “The whole drift of our law is toward the absolute prohibition of all ideas that diverge in the slightest form from the accepted platitudes, and behind that drift of law there is a far more potent force of growing custom, and under that custom there is a natural philosophy which erects conformity into the noblest of virtues and the free functioning of personality into a capital crime against society.” —H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

Upright: “What we are witnessing is the complete breakdown and failure of multiculturalism. … A society cannot be unified if it preserves different cultures and cultural identities within itself. That’s why our national motto is translated ‘out of many, one.’ To the multiculturalist it appears to be, ‘Out of one, many.’ History demonstrates that no nation can long survive if it forgets why it exists.” —Cal Thomas

The BIG lie: “[L]ike so many faiths, Islam is rooted in a commitment to compassion and mercy and justice and charity. Whoever wants to enter paradise, the Prophet Muhammad taught, ‘Let him treat people the way he would love to be treated.’ For Christians like myself, I’m assuming that sounds familiar.” —Barack Obama (Yeah, and Muhammad was also a mass murderer who raped children.)

Non Compos Mentis: “Muslim Americans are some of the most resilient and patriotic Americans you’ll ever meet.” —Barack Obama (Just ask the killers in Chattanooga, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, etc.)

Alpha Jackass: “[Ted] Cruz will sell his mother if he thinks it’ll get him another five points.” —"comedian" Trevor Noah

A broken clock is right twice a day: “I think I would choose Trump. … The reason is, Trump has proven already he’s completely malleable. I don’t think he has any fixed [ideas] he’d go the White House and fight for. On the other hand, Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far right wing policies he’d pursue if he became president.” —Jimmy Carter

Late-night humor: “The Bernie Sanders campaign is demanding proof that Hillary Clinton beat him in yesterday’s Iowa caucus. Today Hillary said, ‘Sure, let me check my server.’” —Conan O'Brien
