Tuesday Short Cuts

The Independent’s Andrew Buncombe says “carrying on exactly as before” is the right response. Talk about writing your own death certificate.

Insight: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” —late 16th century Proverb

For the record: “[The Manchester] attack was the virtual equivalent of walking into a middle school auditorium for the express purpose of maiming and mutilating children. There is no reasoning with this hate. … There is no way for the West to be ‘good’ enough to appease terrorists. There is no policy short of religious conversion that will cause them to relent. The best deterrent to jihad is the obliteration of jihadists. They thrive on victory, not defeat. [Last night], sadly, they won a victory, and here’s all you need to know to understand the character of our enemies — they relish the sound of young girls’ screams.” —David French

Nothing to see here, move along! “There’s only one way Britain should respond to attacks such as Manchester. That is by carrying on exactly as before.” —The UK Independent’s Andrew Buncombe

Upright: “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you.’ So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history. When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.” —former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

Braying Jenny: “You are graduating into a very different time than it was when you arrived a few short years ago. … A time when throwing millions of working people off their health insurance to give tax breaks to the top 1% is considered a victory to some. A time when we worry that a late-night tweet could start a war.” —Sen. Kamala Harris at Howard University

And last… “Trump in Saudi Arabia, Pence at U.S. college. One went to foreign turf & spoke to intolerant, dogmatic extremists; other went to Western Asia.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
