Insight: “Censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion… In the long run it will create a generation incapable of appreciating the difference between independence of thought and subservience.” —Henry Steele Commager (1902-1998)

Double standards: “Let me see if I understand Sen Elizabeth Warren’s position: A DNA test can establish that you are part (a teensy part) Native American, but a DNA test cannot establish whether you are male or female.” —Mona Charen

For the record: “It did prove that [Elizabeth Warren] wasn’t the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long. I think she’s guilty of claiming she’s an American Indian but has no proof — and then [is] using it for applications for college and for political reasons. She needs to … apologize to everybody for what she has done.” —Debbie White Dove Porreco, a descendant of the actual Pocohantas

Food for thought: “Ironically, the same person who constantly rails against the greediness of ‘the wealthy 1%’ can’t even tell 1% of the truth when it comes to her own heritage.” —Jordan Candler

Braying Jackass: “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-Termite.” —Louis Farrakhan on the Jews (Twitter has not intention of banning him.)

Alpha Jackass: “I’m very worried that the president seems to have a love affair with autocrats. … I just don’t know why this administration seems to feel the need to coddle autocrats and dictators from Putin and Kim Jong-un to, you know, Duterte,” —Joe Biden (Last we checked, Trump hadn’t recklessly shipped billions of dollars on pallets over to a state sponsor of terrorism.)

And last… “When you realize Democrats staying in power is completely dependent on minorities and women doing poorly you wonder how actually determined they are to see progress.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
