Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Destroy the family, you destroy the country.” —Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870-1924)

For the record: “Just as in Western Europe, the Left in America seeks to erase America’s Judeo-Christian foundations. The melting pot is regarded as nothing more than an anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-Hispanic meme. The Left suppresses free speech wherever possible for those who oppose it, labeling all non-Left speech ‘hate speech.’ To cite only one example, if you think Shakespeare is the greatest playwright or Bach is the greatest composer, you are a proponent of dead white European males and therefore racist.” —Dennis Prager

Non Compos Mentis: “Say NO'Betsy Devos’.HER QUEST,2 DEFUND PUBLIC SCHOOLS. UR CHILD DESERVES MORE.” —Cher, opposing school choice and needing remedial grammar

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “[Trump’s inaugural] speech was full of hope and inclusion and he reached out to cities in a way they’ve not been reached out to for a long time. … I’m hopeful. … I hope he’ll have the grace and commitment to put all of us under one big tent.” —Jesse Jackson

Braying Jenny: “My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt.” —DNC chairwoman candidate Sally Boynton Brown

And last… “I don’t get what’s so interesting or significant about a White House Press Secretary blatantly lying.” —Frank Fleming
