Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “O liberty! O liberty! What crimes are committed in thy name!” —Madame Jeanne-Marie Roland (1754-1793)

Dezinformatsia: “In the ancient world, well-expressed gender fluidity was the mark of a civilized person. … The Israelites took the transgender trope from their surrounding cultures and wove it into their own sacred scripture. … Counter to everything we grew up believing, the God of Israel … was understood by its earliest worshipers to be a dual-gendered deity.” —NY Times contributor Mark Sameth in a piece titled, “Is God Transgender?”

Alpha Jackass: “[Donald Trump] would’ve loved [Joseph] Stalin. … Trump’s ideas are not only profoundly wrong, they’re dangerous and un-American. They reveal a profound ignorance of our Constitution. It’s a recipe for playing into the hands of terrorists and their propaganda.” —Joe Biden (Barack Obama exchanged five terrorists for an American deserter, Bowe Bergdahl, and gave Iran a $400 million ransom payment, among a plethora of other profoundly wrong decisions.)

Bravo? “Hillary has forgotten more about American foreign policy than Trump and his entire team will ever understand.” —Joe Biden

Upright: “The police are not making black people kill each other at alarming rates. The police are not making black people drop out of school or black men father children out of wedlock. Yet it’s remarkable the extent to which anti-police activists simply take those factors as givens and then demand that police know exactly how to navigate and defuse the resulting, inevitable social pathologies. In other words, activists demand the impossible and then riot when their impossible demands aren’t met.” —David French

For the record: “Remember that there were nine people shot and five killed in Milwaukee in the 48 hours before [the death of an armed black thug, Sylville Smith], but … for some reason Black Lives Matter didn’t think black lives mattered as long as no policeman is involved.” —Newt Gingrich

And last… “It’s understandable that when a criminal is shot by a cop, it makes you so mad you need a free widescreen TV.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
