Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Nate Hochman, Ben Shapiro, Seth Dillon, Frank J. Fleming, and more.

Insight

“One of the most pathetic — and dangerous — signs of our times is the growing number of individuals and groups who believe that no one can possibly disagree with them for any honest reason.” —Thomas Sowell

“It is impossible for ideas to compete in the marketplace if no forum for their presentation is provided or available.” —Thomas Mann (1875-1955)

Re: The Left

“Biden boasted [Friday] in a statement that he’d created 8.3 million jobs since taking office, though that’s largely an accident of timing — he took office when the economy was recovering from losing 20 million jobs in two months. That didn’t stop him from gleefully taking credit: ‘This is a direct result of the American Rescue Plan, our COVID vaccination program, and my plan to grow our economy from the bottom up and middle out.’ The truth is all of those policies have made the economy weaker, not stronger. (Firing unvaccinated people created jobs? Come on, man.)” —Nate Jackson

“For all those who have spent the last year and a half believing that American democracy is under attack and that the events of January 6, 2020, constituted an insurrection, where is the outrage about the clear insurrectionist intention of whoever decided to break the sanctity of the decision-making process of the United States Supreme Court?” —Pennsylvania Senate candidate George Bochetto

“Democrats today hold the most unequivocally, unapologetically, and grotesquely radical line on abortion of any major political party in the Western world. So, President Biden, tell us again — and speak slowly, so we can understand: Who, exactly, is ‘the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history’?” —Nate Hochman

For the Record

“We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from [last] week are a symptom of that.” —Justice Clarence Thomas

“Any perspective that argues that all women should consider treating their unborn children as their mortal enemies rather than as the most important gift they will ever receive is perverse and evil. The whole purpose of being a good adult is to protect children. Turning the preborn into enemies so as to preserve adult ‘life aspirations’ is the height of moral turpitude.” —Ben Shapiro

“If aborted babies were merely clusters of cells, there’d be no reason for social media companies to censor images of their lifeless, mutilated bodies. The censorship is a tacit admission of the brutality and gruesomeness of the procedure.” —Seth Dillon

“‘When you have sex, don’t have murder as your backup plan’ is not a huge ask.” —Frank J. Fleming

A Trip Down Memory Lane

“I want to tell you, Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” —Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer, March 2020

Cheering Them On

“The president — for all those women, men, others who feel outraged, who feel scared, who feel concerned — he hears them, he shares that concern and that horror of what he saw in that draft opinion.” —White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when asked about threats against SCOTUS

Admit Nothing, Deny Everything, Make Counter Accusations

“Capitol police are warning the far Right is calling for violence against a religious group planning to rally for abortion rights.” —CNN’s Jim Sciutto

“U.S. Capitol police are bracing for large demonstrations that are being organized by far-right groups to protest abortion rights.” —CNN’s Alex Marquardt

“Law enforcement sources … tell us that they are closely monitoring social media chatter that suggests that there’s a potential for violence against abortion clinic providers, abortion clinic staff, members of the judiciary.” —CNN’s Whitney Wild

Village Idiots

“I don’t think anybody actually believes fetuses are people. I think they’re lying. There are almost 1,000,000 miscarriages each year in America, it happens to almost everybody. But we’re not constantly getting invited to the funerals. … They’re devastating, but not because of souls. Nobody talks about how they can’t wait to be reunited with their fetus in heaven because they don’t actually believe that.” —"comedian" Alex Falcone

“Fundamentally, Republicans don’t give a rip about women. … Is there anything we can do to men that even comes close to forcing a woman to have a baby?” —Senator Mazie Hirono

Swampthink

“I feel like that’s an oxymoron, the black Republican. … I don’t understand black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.” —"The View’s" Sunny Hostin

Race Bait

“Elon Musk grew up in elite white communities in South Africa, detached from apartheid’s atrocities and surrounded by anti-Black propaganda. He sees his takeover of Twitter as a free speech win but in his youth did not suffer the effects of misinformation.” —The New York Times

And Last…

“They put up a wall around the U.S. Capitol to protect politicians. They put up a wall around the Supreme Court to protect justices. But they can’t build a wall at the southern border to protect you.” —Congressman Jim Jordan
