Quotes for our Times:
Will Alexander, retired U.S Marine who now works in real estate and is a former print journalist: It’s Time for the country to wake up, they’re poisoning us.
To get back to anything that resembles normal in America, it’s time to realize that what these people are doing has nothing to do with political differences anchored in shared values. They are committing crimes. Their policies are bringing loss, suffering and death.
But this is still America. The body politic has been poisoned, and these people will not stop. There must be a reckoning. “Normal” will mean nothing if the people and groups peddling the poison are not held accountable. We must make sure that the worst of them live their lives as political town drunks, on the fringes of American life, and viciously despised.
Jeff Crouere, radio host and political commentator: The Biden blame game.
Over the next few months, the Democrats will use every political trick in their arsenal to hold on to power. They know the stakes are high, for if Republicans can win control of Congress, hopefully, some sanity will be restored, and the tables can be turned on the party that is working overtime to destroy our country.
Rachel Alexander, conservative commentator and editor of the Intellectual Conservative: The strange contradiction of criticizing candidates for having no experience while criticizing others for having too much.
And finally, criticisms about celebrities running for office are similarly invalid to those attacking the wealthy. I predicted several years ago that we’d never get another Republican elected president unless a celebrity came along — and then came Trump. Similarly, Lake’s meteoric rise in the Arizona gubernatorial race is in part due to her name recognition as a local celebrity in the greater Phoenix area. And she’s proven to have rock solid conservative values.
So the next time someone criticizes a candidate for one of these traits, think about whether it’s really valid, or whether it’s being used to smear a real conservative.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: The media and Democrats are running away from the assassination attempt on a justice story.
Now, imagine a Trumper in a red hat showing up at Sotomayor's house. Forget a gun, what if he just had a sign?
They'd Ashli Babbitt the s— out of him. See, to be a threat as defined by the Dems, you don't need real weapons — just a MAGA hat and a map of the Capitol.
Look, all we're asking for is that real assassination attempts of Supreme Court justices by liberals get the same attention as fake hate crimes on actors that we've never heard of.
And maybe less selective prosecution, where attacking the White House gate is treated as justifiable because it happened to be Trump?
