Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Tony Perkins, Kamala Harris, Tim Scott, and more.

Insight: “For liberalism, the individual is the end, and society the means. For fascism, society is the end, individuals the means, and its whole life consists in using individuals as instruments for its social ends.” —Alfredo Rocco (1875-1925)

Re: The Left: “The same party that didn’t bother asking Americans how they felt about transgender sports or voter ID laws didn’t run radical race theory by them either. It’s just another example of how wildly out-of-touch the Democrats are with real people. The same real people, incidentally, who are launching recall efforts in a record-high 50 school boards this year. The Left can call this a manufactured controversy all they want. But we’ll see how phony it feels next election day.” —Tony Perkins

Political futures: “For decades, going back at least as far as the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that concocted a constitutional right to abortion, conservatives have placed a great emphasis on winning back culture war ground through judicial nominations. … The reality is that, as South Texas College of Law professor Josh Blackman recently wrote: ‘We don’t have a 6-3 conservative Court. We have a 3-3-3 Court,’ including three centrists of varying degrees of malleability. Unless fundamental changes are made that cut to the core of the modern conservative legal movement, conservatives will remain disappointed. The Court is not, and will not be, our savior.” —Josh Hammer

For the record: “Biden’s central message is that crime is up because of guns. That’s odd. When a police officer discharges his gun and kills a criminal, it’s always the fault of a ‘racist cop.’ But when a thug kills a police officer or another person, it’s the gun’s fault.” —Gary Bauer

Race bait: “The exclusion & denial of our communities is what DC bipartisan deals require. That’s how you get GOP on board : don’t do much/any for the working class & low income, or women, or poc communities, or unions, etc. … For many communities, their not having a seat at the table is a precondition for bipartisan deals to work in the 1st place. & that’s not only seen as normal, but valued.” —Congresswoman AOC

D'oh! “It’s awful hard, as well, to get Latinx vaccinated as well. Why? They’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.” —Joe Biden

Grand delusions I: “She’s done a great job so far.” —Joe Biden on “border czar” Kamala Harris

Grand delusions II: “We inherited a tough situation. … In five months we’ve made progress.” —Kamala Harris

The BIG Lie I: “I’m glad to be here — it was always the plan to come [to the border].” —Kamala Harris

The BIG Lie II: “This administration does not take their cues from Republican criticism, nor from the former President of the United States of America. We have said, over a number of different occasions — and the vice president has said, over the course — over the last three months, that she would go to the border. She has been before. She would go again. She would go when it was appropriate, when it made sense.” —Harris spokesperson Symone Sanders

And last… “We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. We must address security at our southern border and comprehensively enforce the laws that are already in place.” —Senator Tim Scott
