“Not only do we have the DC jail which is the DC gulag, but now we have Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress, spying on the legislative work that we do, spying on our staff and spying on American citizens.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, referring to the Democratic Speaker of the House
For the record, here’s what gazpacho is:
“Here’s a quick thought experiment: If AOC was fat and in her 60s, would anyone listen to another thing she ever said?”
TV personality Adam Carolla, about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to FOX News commentator Sean Hannity
Carolla, creator and co-host of the now-defunct “Man Show”, argued that while the 32-year-old politician is “young, vibrant and beautiful,” and “everyone’s always putting a camera and a mike in her face,” her “opinions are idiotic 95 percent of the time.”
“If you’re going to do this, then let’s be truthful about it, because the Holocaust isn’t about race. It’s not about race. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”
Whoopi Goldberg, on The View
Goldberg made the comments during a discussion of how the Nazi Holocaust-centered graphic novel “Maus” was banned by a Tennessee school board. That school board banned the book, Goldberg said, because there were complaints about the novel containing nudity and bad language. “The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is – it’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white because Black, white, Jews – everybody.”
Goldberg apologized the next day for her comments, but ABC announced immediately they had decided to suspend her for two weeks.
“[It] shows that she was comparing the pre-Holocaust period in Nazi Germany to some aspects of America today, specifically, she was noting how history has shown us that certain countries and regimes have indeed separated people into second class citizens. In essence, she was saying that Jews were branded as second class citizens back then with a gold star, and today we were also seeing a branding and division of people between the vaccinated, and the unvaccinated – two classes of people. That was the point she made look she wasn’t coming from a place of hate.”

Sen. Rand Paul and wife Kelley
“I have been targeted multiple times now. It is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocate for violence against me and my family!”
Sen. Rand Paul, declaring that singer Richard Marx is behind a mysterious package left on his doorstep
The package contained white powder and a threatening note. Paul was referring to a recent Tweet by Marx stating: “I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.” That, in turn, refers to a 2017 incident between Paul and one of his neighbors that turned violence.
The FBI is investigating the package, but there’s no proof Marx had anything to do with it.
“Clearly, we need faith as a component, and it’s just silly to say otherwise. You know the Age of Enlightenment and Reason gave way to moral relativism. And moral relativism is what led us all the way down the dark path to the Holocaust… Dark periods of history is what we arrive at when we leave God out of the equation.”
– Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, in response to a proposal for a “National Day of Reason” made by Charlotte, North Carolina Mayor Anthony Foxx. Foxx, whom President Obama has nominated for Secretary of Transportation, suggested the “National Day of Reason” be held in conjunction with the “National Day of Prayer.”
So apparently just asking people to be reasonable and actually try to think before they act somehow leads to genocide? The Nazi Holocaust remains one of the worst human-made calamities in modern history, and when people like Nance try to connect it liberal ideology, it diminishes its severity. It’s a collective slap in the face to the millions of people who lost their lives in that event and in other similar atrocities. Note to Nance and the cantankerous heifers that comprise CWA: people don’t commit mass murder because they sat down and thought about it for a while!
You know, I’m all for reason and logic! We don’t have enough of it in Washington or in the mainstream media these days!
“Every single member of my family on both sides was exterminated. Both of my parents were in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. And it is precisely and exactly because of the lessons my parents taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians.”
– Norman Finkelstein, American political scientist and author, whose parents are Nazi Holocaust survivors.
