Worst Quotes of the Week – June 4, 2022

“Unfortunately, they’re trying to blame inanimate objects for all of these tragedies.  When I was growing up in Springfield, you had one or two murders a year. Now we have two, three, four a week in Springfield, Missouri, so something has happened to our society and I go back to abortion. When we decided it was okay to murder kids in their mother’s wombs, life has no value to a lot of these folks.”

Rep. Billy Long, on what he thinks is one cause of the scourge of mass shootings in the U.S.

“Salvador Ramos, who is Hispanic, clearly had a lot of mental issues going on, as was shown with him wearing eyeliner, cross-dressing.  I think some of the most dangerous people in America are trans-terrorists because these are the people who want to groom your children and talk them into changing you gender.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, opining about the Uvalde shooter

There is no evidence Ramos was transgender or had engaged in cross-dressing.
