Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joe Biden, Tony Perkins, Seth Dillon, and more.

The BIG Lies

“Everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.” —Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (“In Constitutional America, it’s ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ In Democrat fascist America, it’s ‘prove your innocence.’” —Tim Young)

“There is not a crime crisis in Washington, DC.” —DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson

“I again call on Congress to pass the assault weapons ban. … The velocity with which it comes out of that muzzle, what it does when it hits the body — most bullets would go just straight through and out … but it blows up once it’s inside your body.” —Joe Biden

For the Record

“Even if Democrats somehow managed to win enough congressional seats to entertain a constitutional amendment repealing the Second Amendment, and even if enough states agreed with repeal, and even if Democrats then outlawed guns at the federal and state levels, that’s when the hard part starts — they’d have to enforce the new ‘no guns’ regime. Yet sending heavily armed federal agents door to door across all of America to collect hundreds of millions of guns, or even just tens of millions if ‘assault weapons’ are all they sought to confiscate, doesn’t seem, well, safe or peaceful.” —Nate Jackson


“Make no mistake. A storm is brewing in this country that screams, ‘Christianity is the problem!’ The calls will come — if they haven’t already — for the faithful to step back from cultural engagement, to acquiesce on biblical truth where the battle is raging the fiercest: for our children. It’s the same argument the Left has been using on the parents of confused kids — give in or they’ll hurt themselves. To the church it will be: back off or they’ll hurt others. … But that’s not the way forward in a nation broken and bleeding. As much as the other side would like to manage the chaos by indulging these delusions and passing meaningless legislation, the problem isn’t the state of our laws; it’s the condition of the heart.” —Tony Perkins

“It is our moment to do what the brave officers in Nashville did: confront and engage the crisis. These aren’t men who sat on the sidelines, letting the shooter take aim at more children. They rushed straight into the face of danger and protected the weak. As Christians, we’re called to do the same: confront evil and protect the vulnerable so they may know Jesus.” —Tony Perkins

Non Compos Mentis

“Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul.” —Joe Biden

“Our hearts go out to … the trans community as they are under attack right now.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“God made me in her image. God made me transgender.” —former Human Rights Campaign Press Secretary Charlotte Clymer (“So, lemme get this straight. You’re certain about ‘God’s’ gender, but not your own? Got it.” —Darrell B. Harrison)


“It is telling that the Transgender Day of Visibility falls on the final day of Women’s History Month. Pride Month, in June, already exists to honor the LGBTQ+ community. Why must one of the days of Women’s History Month also be devoted to the acknowledgment of trans-identifying people?” —Cat Cattinson

“This heightening of depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation among teens and young adult women is complex. There isn’t a simple fix or a simple way to prevent our girls from this suffering. Ultimately, these young women need to have their purposes, positions, and identity given back to them, and that can only be achieved by reversing the damage that grooming, technology, and psychological disempowerment has wrought and by returning/discovering the healing power of faith in God.” —Emmy Griffin

“We’re being offered a deal: Accept radical gender ideology, drag for kids, porn in libraries, grooming in schools, compelled speech, the mutilation of minors, etc., and trans people will stop killing themselves and murdering others.” —Seth Dillon (“And even if we went along with all of it, the violence wouldn’t stop because it’s innate in the ideology.” —Allie Beth Stuckey)

“We gave the trans crowd everything they wanted — tolerance, acceptance, a key to the women’s room, and trophies meant for women. It just wasn’t enough. It never will be. That’s the problem.” —Kevin Downey Jr.
