For the record: “This caravan is different than what we’ve seen in the past. [There is] organization at a higher level than we have seen before. We’ve seen violence … and as they pass other international borders we’ve seen them behave in a nature that we have not seen in the past.” —Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, U.S. Northern command

Non Compos Mentis: “Birthright citizenship has been part of the U.S. Constitution since 1868. No flood then, no flood now.” —NPR’s Eric Deggans (By the way: “How long has gun ownership been part of the U.S. Constitution?” —Sean Davis)

Hyper hypocrisy: “Eliminating #birthrightcitizenship would be incredibly harmful & is part of this administration’s radical, hateful agenda to stoke fear in our communities and contribute to many people’s already very real fear of deportation.” —Planned Parenthood Action (Of course, babies have to be BORN to receive citizenship…)


Village Idiot: "We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism. If we don’t stop [Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.” —actor James Cromwell

Braying Jackass I: “The right-wing group killed the woman in Charlottesville. This guy is a right-winger who killed the people in the synagogue. The right-winger sent bombs to CNN and to Democrats. I don’t see Democrats killing people.” —CNN’s Don Lemon

Braying Jackass II: “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right.” —Don Lemon

Oh, the humanity! “I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country. It’s making me fat. I hear what [Trump] said now, and I have to go eat pancakes now, and pancakes are very fattening.” —Barbra Streisand

And last… “The ‘calls for [Trump] to cool his overheated rhetoric’ are what I’ve been calling ‘civility bulls—t’ for years. It’s always only aimed at the other side. They want you to stop fighting them with vigor, and they have no intention of stopping fighting you. Trump obviously know[s] this and can’t be played.” —Ann Althouse
