Tuesday Short Cuts

Gov. McAuliffe claims Charlottesville demonstrators “had better equipment than our State Police.” The State Police beg to differ.

Insight: “The new paganism of the West, which prides itself on being scientific, is often peculiarly neurotic. Only a neurosis explains its sentimental lack of consistency, the acceptance of the historic duty of the Mohammedan to spread his faith by the sword and the failure to accept the duty of a Christian to spread his faith by teaching.” —Graham Greene (1904-1991)

For the record: “Al Gore’s latest flick, ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,’ is now being shown in movie theaters across America. … Of the estimated $121 million Americans spent at the movies last weekend, less than $1 million was spent on the Gore’s sad grab at political relevancy. Perhaps Gore can take solace in the fact that he narrowly edged out for 15th place another liberal-biased movie, ‘Cars 3,’ which targets children with fossil fuel lies via cute talking cars. No word yet on whether Gore is going to demand a recount.” —Heartland Institute president Tim Huelskamp

The BIG Lie: “I can tell you this, 80% of the people [marching in Charlottesville] had semiautomatic weapons. You saw the militia walking down the street, you would have thought they were an army. I was just talking to the State Police upstairs; they had better equipment than our State Police had.” —Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe

Braying Jenny: “I’m glad elected leaders in the Republican Party are finally … confronting the fact that [Donald Trump is] not only unfit to be president … he’s [also] unfit to be human.” —CNN’s resident “GOP” commentator Ana Navarro

Braying Jackass: “Only 8 months into the Trump Presidency we are on the brink of nuclear war and Nazis are in [the] streets of an American city. Seems about right.” —former Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer

Race bait: “White millennials are just as racist as their grandparents.” —Catherine Rampell in The Washington Post

And last… “Remember: all white people are racist because of a few dozen skinheads, but Islam is peaceful no matter how many terror attacks it causes.” —Matt Walsh
