Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Laura Hollis, Cardi B, Madonna, and more.

Upright: “We know that the coronavirus is highly contagious. So, too, are optimism, courage and action. We should be optimistic about the future. Americans have historically been inventive, creative and persistent. … There is always a third, fourth or fifth option. We just have to figure them out.” —Jackie Gingrich Cushman

For the record: “Photo ID is probably the vote-integrity measure that garners the most vocal opposition. Democrats routinely oppose photo ID laws, claiming that voting is too important a right to be subject to such restrictions, and that photo ID laws impermissibly discriminate against minorities, the elderly and the homeless. In the era of COVID-19, the hypocrisy of that argument is made clear. I looked for states that have imposed photo ID requirements for COVID-19 testing and found plenty… Not only are such tests often a matter of life and death but the populations that have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus also include minorities, the elderly and the homeless.” —Laura Hollis

Non compos mentis (verbatim): “They looting in Minnesota and as much as I don’t like this type of violence it is what it is .Too much peaceful marches,too much trending hashtags and NO SOLUTIONS! The people are left with NO CHOICE .” —rapper Cardi B

Misdirection: “All [social-media platforms] want is to not pay taxes. And they don’t want to be regulated, so they pander to the White House. You see what Facebook’s Zuckerberg is saying today about all this. He just panders.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Non sequitur: “White men … can get armed up and walk into a state capitol, and that’s okay. And the police are benign. They don’t even act afraid. But let black people show up and protest the death of an innocent black man and suddenly … we gotta go full force.” —MSNBC’s Joy Reid

Village idiot: “Until we can overcome Racism in America — no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops.” —Madonna

And last… “Why is Twitter censoring the official White House account of our government while allowing Iran’s supreme leader to tweet death notices to Jews and Israel?” —Charlie Kirk
