Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Tim Scott, Bill Maher, Andrew Cuomo, and more.

Insight: “The tyranny of the many would be when one body takes over the rights of others, and then exercises its power to change the laws in its favor.” —Voltaire (1694-1778)

“It was the woke supremacists, by the way, who said that me and Herschel Walker were the coon squad. [Leftmedia talkingheads] are at their wit’s end because there are African Americans willing to speak their minds from a conservative perspective.” —Senator Tim Scott

For the record: “In this [American Rescue Plan Act], if you’re a [minority] farmer, your loan will be forgiven up to 120%. … But if you’re a white person … no forgiveness. That’s reparations. What does that have to do with COVID?” —Senator Lindsey Graham (As the New York Post reports, the bill “sets aside $10.4 billion for agriculture support, with about half of that amount set aside for minority farmers,” yet “African Americans own about 35,000 farms in the United States — less than 2 percent of the nation’s total.”)

Observations: “Biden’s speech [was] profoundly dispiriting, mean-spirited, ungrateful, petty, and otherwise wanting in good qualities. The state of mind reflected in it was craven and deceitful. … [He] can’t even fake sincerity.” —political analyst Scott Johnson

Friendly fire: “You’re not gonna win the battle for the 21st century if you are a silly people and Americans are a silly people. … You know who doesn’t care that there’s a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Seuss book? China. … We’re not losing to China. We lost. The returns just haven’t all come in yet. They made robots that check a kid’s temperature and got … back in school. Most of our kids are still pretending to take Zoom classes while they watch TikTok and [their] brain cells slowly commit ritual suicide.” —Bill Maher

Belly laugh of the week: “I am not part of the political club. And you know what? I’m proud of it.” —Andrew Cuomo, who actually inherited the “political club” from his father, former Governor Mario Cuomo, as did his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo

Non compos mentis: “Eliminating the Hyde Amendment is a matter of economic and racial justice because it most significantly impacts Medicaid recipients, who are low-income and more likely to be women of color.” —Shalanda Young, Biden’s nominee for deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget

Race bait: “I do absolutely agree that [Georgia’s Republican election reform] racist. It is a redux of Jim Crow, in a suit and tie.” —Stacey Abrams

Racism: “There is nothing white people can say and do that is creative, profound, and intimidating.” —Salem College professor Dr. Kimya Nuru

And last… “Want to see some serious racism? Study the history of how gun control laws have been used.” —Congressman Burgess Owens
