Friday Short Cuts

“Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward.” —Patricia Sampson

Insight: “Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward.” —Patricia Sampson (1921-1998)

Upright: “I’d never wanna get on an airplane that only had one wing. The president wants to make sure that we’re actually securing the border in … totality, not just with one wing. You need two wings. Which means you have to have a wall. You have to have technology. You have to have all of the things that the president has put forward in his proposal.” —Sarah Sanders

Look in the mirror: “We’re doing serious damage to our country. Totally unnecessarily.” —Nancy Pelosi

Hot air: “[Central America] is the most vulnerable region in the world to global warming. … That is one of the principal causes for [migrants] making that long journey.” —Al Gore

Alpha Jackass: “Last week, a group of boys engaged with a Native American man beating a tribal drum. … These boys, who attend a religious school, were there on a school trip protesting against a woman’s right to reproductive freedom. Several of these boys were wearing red MAGA hats, a hat that has become synonymous with white nationalism and racism. Several were doing a ‘tomahawk chop.’ Several were laughing. When I saw that video, I saw boys flaunting their entitlement and displaying toxic masculinity. It seemed to me like they were reflecting the white nationalism and racism that the hats on their heads have come to represent. I sent out a tweet that read, ‘The red MAGA hat is the new white hood.’ Right-wing pundits and anonymous trolls alike screamed for my head–literally and figuratively. My husband received death threats on his cell phone. Many demanded an apology. Here’s the thing: I was right. So, I won’t apologize to these boys. Or anyone who wears that hat.” —Alyssa Milano

And last… “The funniest thing in the #ExposeChristianSchools tag are the people complaining about the ‘anti-science’ agenda of Christian schools. Do you guys have any idea what sort of anti-science gibberish they teach in public schools? Let’s start with the idea that girls can have penises.” —Matt Walsh
