This Week In Quotes: Aug 1 – Aug 7, 2014
This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else. It’s a part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true. — Mo Brooks
“What is the one race that can be discriminated against? … All whites. Mo Brooks
But frankly, (Obama) should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people. —Barney Frank
The hippies have reached the age where they’re expected to be in charge of things, but they still want to rebel against authority when they *are* the authority. — Morgan Freeberg
How many sexual assaults do we have to have before the president of the United States and Washington, D.C., acts to keep our citizens safe? That border is not secure, and we see it everyday. Not just in Texas, but I will suggest to you the other 47 contiguous states of individuals who are committing crimes against our citizens. It’s time for us to secure that border. — Rick Perry
You know, it wasn’t that long ago that we Americans and our allies won wars. Sure, it’s unfashionable to talk about winning today, but we have much to learn from history. And history teaches that if you pummel your enemies into submission, they tend to submit and stop trying to murder you and your kids. I’m not necessarily talking about emulating the original Middle East peacemakers, the Romans, who got tired of Carthage’s attitude and leveled the city, killed the men, sold the women and children into bondage and sowed the fields with salt. But then, on the other hand, we haven’t had a lot of problems with the Carthaginians in the last couple millennia. — Kurt Schlichter
Today’s Jew-hate is worse than 1930s Jew-hate precisely because, unlike 80 years ago, it’s déjÃ vu all over again. We can’t plead ignorance. — Mark Steyn
Just to consider this purely in psychological terms: Large numbers of German people genuinely believed “Jewish financiers” were behind the Great War. They wanted to live under Hitler because they thought the Nazis would govern better than the other parties; they offered the best possibility for a German rebirth. Many other Continentals felt the same, and started looking around for a Hitler of their own. Their Jew-hate arose from their calculation of their own self-interest, however deformed and contemptible that might be.
But no western progressive wants to live under Hamas. His Jew-hate arises only from a dismal reflexive multiculti empathy. So, in the most perverse testimony to the persistence of post-1918 counter-tribalism, he hates Jews not out of perceived self-interest in the ruins of a devastating war but merely as a function of his support for the exotic other. As I said, just to keep it in psychological terms, this strikes me as far weirder than old-school Jew-hate, and makes its virulence even more unsettling. — Mark Steyn
The survey taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked a simple question of 34,557 adults nationwide: “Which of the following best represents how you think of yourself?” The five possible answers were straight, lesbian/gay, bisexual, “something else” and “I don’t know the answer.” Transgenders, the “T” in LGBT, were not included.
The survey found that a mere 1.6 percent of the adult population self-identifies as “lesbian/gay,” and an even smaller 0.7 percent told interviewers they were bisexual. The bisexuals were outnumbered by the 1.1 percent who didn’t know, wouldn’t answer or said they were “something else.”
This result was far from the 10 percent that homosexual rights advocates have claimed since the 1970s. — The Washington Times
I’m reminded of the observation recently quoted by, I think, Kevin Williamson: “Totalitarianism does not consist of iron law; it
I mean, I’d like to see (Mitt Romney’s) house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. It would
