"The biggest problem America faces are lost adults whose bizarre beliefs are saturating an entire generation of impressionable young minds." —Rebecca Hagelin

Political Editors · Apr. 24, 2019

Upright: “I think there are two big reasons why this country is so great. The first is our Constitution, which guarantees our freedom of speech and expression. The second is our free-market system. … It pains me to see people in this country glorifying socialism. Young people especially have been indoctrinated into believing that free enterprise is immoral because it enriches the greedy and depresses the poor.” —Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus

For the record: “There’s no collusion, says the special counsel. That takes one sentence. It doesn’t take 200 damn pages. It doesn’t take $35 million dollars.” —Mark Levin

Braying Jenny: “I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country [and] in the world. ” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Non compos mentis: “Tourist mecca Notre Dame also revered as place of worship.” —AP headline

Demo-gogues: “I accept that there’s a humanitarian crisis that is being caused by this president. There is a humanitarian crisis when you throw children into cages and separate families. That’s a human-rights violation. We can keep our country safe and strong and honor human rights as well.” —Sen. Cory Booker

Tone-deaf: “I think there’s enough [in the Mueller report] that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.” —Hillary Clinton, who actually broke the law on numerous occasions without being indicted

The BIG Lie: “When it comes to the VA, all I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always told me growing up. Which is that, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ … This thing … provides the highest quality care to our veterans.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Braying Jackass: “While I am a progressive feminist, I have often debated folks who are citing the Bible and shouting out Sodom and Gomorrah. That’s something they always say. And I would always push back and say, ‘Listen, if Jesus is so great, why weren’t you nicer? Why aren’t you kinder?’ … Jesus needs new PR. I always had that line growing up. Because, honestly, I think what Mayor Pete [Buttigieg] is doing — he is demonstrating how to actually be a Christian, to embrace people, to be more compassionate. I think that’s an example that crosses partisan boundaries actually.” —MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell

Re: The Left: “I am thankful [Rep. Ilhan] Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.” —Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb (USA retired) rebutting Omar’s ridiculous assertions about Mogadishu

And last… “The biggest problem America faces are lost adults whose bizarre beliefs are saturating an entire generation of impressionable young minds.” —Rebecca Hagelin
