Quotes for our Times:
J.B. Shurk, writer for American Thinker:
The inmates are running the asylum.
America — the only place in the world where success is so obtainable that problems have to be invented. What a country!
Can you imagine how strange it must be for those who literally walk through the desert under great odds of dying from thirst or cartel slaughter just to reach an oasis whose cultural elites find America too repugnant to defend? Welcome to America! You made it! Now pick up this Molotov cocktail and burn it to the ground! (Or at least kneel before our flag to show how much you hate this place you nearly died to reach.) Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel's Tucker Carlson Tonight: New mask guidelines are about politics and control. No one is fighting for the rights of those who don't want the vaccine.
This is about politics and social control. The Biden administration has decided it owns your body. The media agree with that. If the rest of us allow that grotesque claim to go unchallenged, we’re in deep trouble going forward, for generations, long after COVID recedes, and it will at some point.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five : Isn't it time White leftists resign from their jobs to correct injustice?
Every lily-white leftist in a comfy editorial position at a magazine, TV show, or college — it's time to move on and fix your privilege.
If you're White and find race behind everything, it's time to put your money where your motor-mouth is. Get out. You're big on a $15 dollar minimum wage. Give it a try. How great would it be to have Brian Stelter say to you 'you wanna supersize that? (Just check your fries before you leave).
But if you don't quit — then clearly, you're the racist, thinking you deserve that job over a person of color. So until all White leftists resign their jobs, we must all hold them accountable.
Andrea Widburg, writer for American Thinker: America had its first show trial on Tuesday and it was loathsome.
What happened in the House on Tuesday tells us one of two things: We are either witnesses to the complete degradation of those in Washington, whether elected or in the security forces. They are desperately weak, mentally ill people who should not be allowed near power. Alternatively, we are watching a fascist show trial run by people determined to expand their power and obliterate the inherent liberties named in the Constitution. They should be kept even further from power than their mentally ill peers.
Silvio Canto, Jr., American Thinker journalist: Where are the Texas fugitives?
My guess is that this gang left Texas convinced that voters would build each one a statue in Austin. Instead, they are now the source of jokes and getting angry at everyone. It does not get better than the '2021 Bum Steer of the Year.'
