Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from William Barr, Tony Perkins, Joe Biden, and more.

Upright: “[Instituting] a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history. … Most of the governors do what bureaucrats always do, which is they … defy common sense. They treat free citizens as babies that can’t take responsibility for themselves and others.” —Attorney General William Barr

Political futures: “Increasingly, the message of the Democrats appears to be ‘Biden or no peace.’ … As an attorney general, I’m not supposed to get into politics. But … I think we are getting into a position where we’re going to find ourselves irrevocably committed to a socialist path. And I think if Trump loses this election, that will be the case.” —William Barr

For the record: “It’s very necessary to vote for President Trump.” —Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno

Observations: “Just last year, Netflix threatened to boycott Georgia if a pro-life law went into effect. Legalized abortion perpetuates the myth that there are ‘no consequences’ to engaging in sex outside of marriage, and it is often used by sexual abusers of children to cover up their crimes. By releasing the film ‘Cuties’ to its viewers, Netflix is now actively participating in the sexual exploitation of minors.” —Tony Perkins

Verbal gymnastics: “‘Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care runnin’ a, you know, a department store, uh, thing, you know, where, in the second floor of the ladies department or whatever, you know what I mean?” —Joe Biden (Actually, we have no idea what Biden means.)

Braying jackass: “Let me be clear: I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. But I don’t trust Donald Trump. And at this moment the American people can’t either.” —Joe Biden

Alpha jackass: “Trump has more in common with Castro than with Churchill.” —Joe Biden

And last… “Today’s leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from those of Nazi, Soviet and Maoist mass murderers. Keep in mind that one does not have to be in favor of death camps or wars of conquest to be a tyrant. The only requirement is that one must believe in the primacy of the state over individual rights.” —Walter Williams
