Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Heather Mac Donald, Barack Obama, and more.

Insight: “Men are rewarded and punished not for what they do, but rather for how their acts are defined. This is why men are more interested in better justifying themselves than in behaving themselves.” —Thomas Szasz (1920-2012)

For the record: “The idea that the police are wantonly killing black men is a creation of a politicized press and an elite establishment dedicated to the idea that racism is America’s defining trait.” —Heather Mac Donald in a lecture first removed by YouTube for violating “Community Guidelines” and then reinstated with an age restriction of “inappropriate”

Demo-gogues, Part I: “Bull Connor may be gone, but today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” —Barack Obama during a eulogy political speech at John Lewis’s funeral

Demo-gogues, Part II: “There are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting … attacking our voting rights … even undermining the Postal Service in the run-up to an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don’t get sick!” —Barack Obama

Non compos mentis: “We hold China as a potential trading partner, as a country that has pulled tens of millions of people out of poverty in a short period of time, and as a country growing into a respectable nation amongst other nations. I deeply believe that.” —Senator Dianne Feinstein

Braying jenny: “This president is absolutely outrageous in the way that he carries out the playbook of third world countries with dictators.” —Rep. Maxine Waters

And last… “The same people who said Trump would destroy America are currently burning America to the ground.” —Ryan Fournier
