Re: “Biden’s Address Was Full of Lies”

“Another lie is his claim that ‘high-capacity magazines … hold 100 rounds that can be fired off in seconds.’ It’s not possible to get a AR-15, which fires only one round per trigger pull, to achieve that kind of rate of fire, even if you use a now-illegal bump
stock.” —Oregon

Re: “Biden Walks Back His Racism Smear

“Look at the successful black people in our country, whether it’s Tim Scott,
 Oprah Winfrey, Ben Carson, Lebron James, Will Smith, Condoleezza Rice, Clarence 
Thomas, or just about anyone else (except Barack Obama and maybe some Democrat mayors and state AGs). I don’t think preferential treatment or affirmative action had anything to do with their success. It’s because they enjoy the rights and freedoms of all law-abiding American citizens and because of their willingness to work hard and not give up!” —Texas

Re: “Do You Know Your -isms?”

“Easily persuaded socialists/leftists/liberal leaders and colluding media insidiously and methodically intend to keep relevant terms of debate obscure. Ambiguity helps arouse visceral rage, secure unassailable loyalty, and demonize opposition when your followers are mostly low-educated, uncritical, undiscerning ‘sheople.’ Is it subtle evil or coincidence that the GOP became associated with the evolutionary, biological, and universal color for extreme danger, ‘red,’ while the Democrat became the universal color of peaceful and clear skies, ‘blue’?” —Missouri

Re: “Progressive Monsters Are Killing Childhood

“Children are to be cherished and nurtured, not to be carefully brainwashed by the Democrat-inspired systemic murdering of young minds — minds neither understanding what is happening nor having the ability to fight back even if they did. It is evil. It is inconceivable. It is the mark of Satan in the schoolroom. It is leftist fascism on the wing. We saw it in Germany and Japan and China and the Soviet Union and Cambodia and Spain and Uganda. It is ‘my way or the highway’ government where the challenger to the status quo is belittled and intimidated and even killed. Your children need your help or they will never enjoy freedom.” —Ohio

“I believe the pandemic has shown many parents that teachers unions are increasing irrelevant to the education of their kids. My sister — a professional educator with a PhD from UCLA — told me 40 years ago that unions are the greatest obstacle to education, and she was right.” —Michigan
