Quotes for our Times:
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Whitmer won't say 'women,' calls them 'menstruating people' instead.
[Michigan Gov. Gretchen] Whitmer's reference to women left Tudor Dixon, GOP candidate for governor of Michigan, wondering if the left has gone 'insane.'
'I mean really. Menstruating people?' she told Fox News Digital. 'This is not normal behavior. Someone needs to check the Democratic Party. It's starting to seem like COVID was more like mad cow disease.'
Katie Pavlich, Editor of Townhall.com: White House makes an interesting statement about small arms and bullets.
'But what they'll also tell you is that the bullets and the small arms are making a big difference every single day, because the fighting in the Donbas is close combat. A lot of long-range fires, lots of artillery, no question. But there, it's a lot of small-arms combat, too. So we forget about that,' [National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby] continued.
The comment comes after President Joe Biden called for a ban on semi-automatic rifles for American citizens and as the administration works to shut down ammunition sales to civilians.
Terence P. Jeffrey, editor-in-chief of CNSNews: Boston banned a Christian flag but raised a communist one.
While filing four different opinions, the Supreme Court nonetheless sided 9-0 against the city of Boston — with retiring Justice Stephen Breyer writing the court's main opinion.
'(T)he city's refusal to let Shurtleff and Camp Constitution fly their flag based on its religious viewpoint violated the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment,' Breyer concluded.
Next, we will see if this same court rejects the absurd argument that an assistant high school football coach established a religion when he habitually said a postgame prayer on a public-school football field.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: The left doesn't care about crime.
So we live in two countries. And the left is cool with it. And we can't talk about it because that's racist. But if we can't talk about it, we can't solve it. So who's stopping us?
Well, I'll give you a tiny, tiny hint. Let's start with teachers’ unions, the wardens of these prisons we call schools. We're sentencing poor Blacks to a life of bad education, so it's hard to blame them seeking other options. And it's all brought to you by teachers’ unions who hate school choice because it's competition. So now we're told reading, math and history are racist, to be replaced with pronoun workshops and grievance studies.
You rob kids of the skills they need to succeed and in a few years, those kids will rob you. At least they'll get a person's pronoun correct during a carjacking. That's progress.
