This Week In Quotes: Sept 19 – Sept 25

In the North Carolina legislature, Tillis was Chuck Schumer on immigration. Thanks to his incessant shilling for the Chamber of Commerce on bringing in “guest workers” — who are now being supported by taxpayers — Tillis is currently the only Republican trying to replace a Democrat in a red state who has been consistently down in the polls. — Ann Coulter

It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people. — Ruth Bader Ginsburg

He has not only failed to investigate crimes and potential crimes occurring in this administration, he has been the Cover-Upper-in-Chief and will be sorely missed by those in the administration like Lois Lerner who want to disobey the law and flaunt it. — Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)

They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us. Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals. — Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

(Politicians who don’t buy into manmade gloal warming) are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under. — Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

(ISIS is) the enemy of Islam. That’s what they are, and as the 21 clerics yesterday said in Saudi Arabia, they are in fact the order of Satan. — John Kerry

In 1960, 5 percent of Republicans and 4 percent of Democrats said they would be displeased if their children married someone of the opposite party. By 2010, Cass Sunstein observes, those numbers had jumped to 49 percent and 33 percent. — New York Times

Syria has a lot of oil. A lot of oil. Not a lot of oil in Rwanda or the Congo…atrocities happen there all the time. I don’t know why. I don’t think [Americans go to war] gleefully, but I do think there is a financial agenda attached to it. — Rosie O’Donnell

Isn’t it a shame that for most of black people, the good ol’ days were the days when things were segregated legally in this country? That the good o’ days when there were two parent families were the norm in the black community and they were – two parent families were the norm back during segregation days. Howard University was graduating doctors and lawyers that were genuinely qualified not through affirmative action, but hard-working merit by the score. And there was this sense we’re achieving against the odds and we’re going to push and break through – all of this during the good ol’ days of segregation. What liberalism has done to black communities is horrific. — Bo Snerdly

Much of the scholarly literature estimates that the actual rate is more like a tenth of that one-in-five rate, 2.16 percent, or 21.6 per 1,000 to use the conventional formulation. But that number is problematic, too, as are most of the numbers related to sexual assault, as the National Institute of Justice, the DoJ’s research arm, documents. For example, two surveys conducted practically in tandem produced victimization rates of 0.16 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively – i.e., the latter estimate was eleven times the former. The NIJ blames defective wording on survey questions. — Kevin Williamson

Of all the statistics and evidence that are prevalent in the discussion of sexual assault, there is one datum conspicuous in its absence: the fact that sexual assault has been cut by nearly two-thirds since 1995. Under the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ apples-to-apples year-over-year comparison, sexual assault has declined 64 percent since the Clinton years. That is excellent news, indeed, but it does not feed the rape-epidemic narrative, and so it must be set aside. — Kevin Williamson
