Monday Short Cuts

"There is a logical connection between the left's ideology and its authoritarian, intolerant and violent behavior." —David Limbaugh

Political Editors · Oct. 22, 2018

Food for thought: “The problem with race preferences is broader than the inevitable fraud it encourages. What the left did not anticipate when it valorized identity politics for its favored groups was that, eventually, some in the majority would engage in the same kind of self-definition. When it seems that so many major institutions … grant special status to some groups based on identity and not on disadvantage, the majority will be tempted to seize the same flag.” —Mona Charen

Upright: “There is a logical connection between the left’s ideology and its authoritarian, intolerant and violent behavior. … For far too many leftists, the end justifies the means, so they are willing to suspend due process and change the rules when they don’t prevail at the ballot box.” —David Limbaugh

Hyper hypocrisy: “All Americans should recoil from the president’s praise for a violent assault on a reporter doing his Constitutionally protected job. This amounts to the celebration of a crime by someone sworn to uphold our laws and an attack on the First Amendment by someone who has solemnly pledged to defend it.” —White House Correspondents’ Association protest of Trump’s humorous remark about Rep. Greg Gianforte body-slamming a Guardian reporter last year. Meanwhile, the Leftmedia is silent on Democrats advocating violent confrontations against Republicans

Braying Jenny: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life — that’s bulls—t.” —Democrat Arizona Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema

Village Idiots: “I started writing ‘Game of Thrones’ all the way back in 1991, long before anybody was talking about climate change. But there is — in a very broad sense — there’s a certain parallel there. And the people in Westeros are fighting their individual battles over power and status and wealth. And those are so distracting them that they’re ignoring the threat of ‘winter is coming,’ which has the potential to destroy all of them and to destroy their world.” —author George RR Martin

Non Compos Mentis I: “The last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II. And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint [for mitigating global warming]. … And what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialized our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non Compos Mentis II: “The Trump administration is trying to make Trans people disappear by defining gender as only male and female, determined by genitalia at birth. This is an egregious, callous attack on the LGBT community. Send a clear message on Nov 6th that there is no place for hate in America.” —George Takei

And last… “I always hear about how terrible ‘white people’ are from leftists. When you consider they know white women like Elizabeth Warren, it makes some sense.” —Katie Pavlich
