Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Liz Wheeler, Mark Meadows, Emmanuel Macron, and more.

Insight: “The most dangerous untruths are truths moderately distorted.” —Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)

Re: The Left: “Why does critical race theory peddle bigoted and obviously false assumptions about individuals based on their skin color? Not pure racial hatred. Racialism is a tactic, a tool used by critical race theorists to tear down American institutions. Their aims: abolish the nuclear family, abolish gender, defund the police, abolish the border, abolish prisons, abolish the Senate, abolish the Electoral College, abolish ICE, abolish voter ID, abolish capitalism, abolish private/charter schools, abolish religious freedom, abolish free speech, abolish rights, abolish objective truth, abolish reality. Sound familiar? Democratic political agenda items are textbook critical race theory. We should reject its reduction of people to the color of their skin. It’s a tool with a dangerously clear purpose: to impose simple, unadulterated Marxism in the United States of America. We must overwhelmingly reject it in its entirety on the basis of what it really is.” —Liz Wheeler

Food for thought: “I’m finding increasingly in my travels that with regard to the matter of professing believers in Christ understanding (or not) Critical Race Theory, the greater concern is not that they don’t understand Critical Race Theory, but that they don’t understand the gospel.” —Darrell B. Harrison

For the record: “A remarkable sequence from Joe Biden this week on investigating COVID-19 origins. He cancels an independent probe last week… and now this week announces he wants a G7 investigation led by the WHO, who blatantly covered for China’s lies and cost millions of lives. Outrageous.” —Mark Meadows

Non compos mentis: “We all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, ‘What do we need to do better next time?’ And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives [is] going to be essential. And it’s something that I think we all could have done a little bit better on.” —ex-COVID adviser Andy Slavitt (Because literally shutting down a huge portion of the economy and being confined to our homes for months on end wasn’t sacrificial enough…)

Globalist birds of a feather: “It’s great to have a U.S. president who’s part of the club and willing to cooperate.” —French President Emmanuel Macron

Greasing the skids: “I don’t give up on Joe Manchin [who put a fork in the Dems’ HR 1 power grab]. When he was governor and secretary of state in West Virginia, he initiated many of the initial ideas that are in … the For the People Act.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Lack of self-awareness: “Republicans across the country are undermining our democracy, suppressing the vote, ignoring the sanctity of the vote which is the basis for our democracy. We cannot let that stand.” —Nancy Pelosi

The BIG Lie: “We need to talk about Jan. 6. I’m talking about Jan. 6, 2025. That’s when the U.S. Congress will meet to certify the winner of the 2024 presidential election. ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ was a recent TV crime show. As the 2024 race approaches, the Trump-GOP’s current weekly drama is titled ‘How to Get Away with Murdering Democracy.’” —Juan Williams

And last… “AOC says HR 1 must be passed because it’s not enough for Democrats to ‘rely solely on a wish of winning elections.’ To be clear, is AOC suggesting that HR 1 would guarantee Democrats winning elections?” —Charlie Kirk
