Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Franklin Graham, Victor Davis Hanson, Darrell B. Harrison, and more.

Insight

“The human heart refuses to believe in a universe without purpose.” —Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)

Upright

“There’s never been a tougher time to be a cop than right now. After years of lopsided media portrayals and misguided attempts to defund law enforcement, many Americans have formed a wildly inaccurate view of the 800,000 good cops out there who will never wind up in the headlines for disrespecting their uniform or abusing their badge. As a result, we’re not only seeing a devastating rise in crime all over the country, we’re seeing unprecedented attacks on cops. … There’s a line between civilization and anarchy. It’s thin, and it’s blue.” —Mike Rowe

Re: The Left

“LGBTQ activists are using corporations to force their agenda on the public, and companies may want to take another look at what they are allowing to happen. Disney has gone too far. The people of Florida have revolted, and it’s going to cost Disney big time. Disney had a special tax status in the state which they benefitted from in a huge way — but because they came out against the parents of Florida, the governor and legislators have revoked that status. What has happened at Disney is moral failure. Walt Disney had a vision for wholesome family entertainment. He was committed to the family. The morals of the corporate leadership of Disney today are in the gutter, and they want to redefine family counter to God’s original design and flaunt sin.” —Franklin Graham

“The administration fears the anger of the hard Left more than the furor of the American people. So it will not change, preferring to be politically correct and a failure than to be ideologically incorrect and successful. … Biden knows that he inherited a stable, prosperous America and has nearly ruined it. And he knows the American people know that too.” —Victor Davis Hanson

“The left have this fantasy that if they can just suppress people from seeing right-wing viewpoints then everyone will have no choice but to believe moronic left-wing ideas.” —Frank J. Fleming

Potomac Fever

“Elon Musk’s real goal has nothing to do with the freedom of others. His goal is the freedom to wield enormous power without having to be accountable to laws and regulations, shareholders, or market competition — which is why he’s dead set on owning Twitter.” —former Labor Secretary Robert Reich

Village Idiot

“This is propaganda. This is misinformation. This is the way in which wars start. This is the way in which hatred starts.” —American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten regarding parental education rights

Lack of Self-Awareness Award

“The window is quickly closing for us to take climate action. Now is our moment. Climate justice is a reproductive health care issue. #FightForOurFuture #EarthDay.” —Planned Parenthood Action (“Your hashtag is laughable! You’re literally in the business of killing ‘our future’ for profit.” —Darrell B. Harrison)

And Last…

“If you think you’re having a bad day, spare a thought for the Twitter person who decided it was a good idea to ban the Babylon Bee.” —David Burge

“What’s remarkable is that one of the most stunning turns in the history of public discourse occurred because a satire account said a man is not a woman.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
