WEEKEND QUOTABLES

Mourning through militancy

Columnist Steven Thrasher

But when death has come through great injustice, mourning through a militancy aimed at stopping similarly unjust deaths is not just healthy, but righteous and ethical. Mourning through militancy is one of the more noble sides of America’s history. -- Guardian

“It’s sad out here. There was so much blood.” -- Tribune
AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders on Janus case
“This is the place, sisters and brothers, where we make a stand today.” -- At rally Saturday in New York City.
Claremont Prof. Charles Taylor Kerchner
"Could [Janus] put teachers' unions out of business? No. Not close. Unions can go to grass roots and get back to constant organizing fairly quickly. It might drive unions to get closer to their core, to get closer to their members, and to be sort of more in touch with what's going on." -- EdWeek 
Republican Congressman Brian Mast
 I have fired tens of thousands of rounds through that rifle, many in combat... We used it because it was the most lethal — the best for killing our enemies. And I know that my community, our schools and public gathering places are not made safer by any person having access to the best killing tool the Army could put in my hands. -- New York Times 
Arturo Sarukhan Former Mexican Ambassador to U.S.
“Even from the get-go, the idea of Mexico paying for the wall was never going to fly... It could end up with the U.S. asking itself, ‘Who lost Mexico?’ ” -- Washington Post

  1. Hey Brian Mast. Dude, I hate to tell you, but your AR-15 is not the "most lethal -- the best for killing our enemies". Have you heard about nukes? And who are these "our enemies" you're referring to anyway?
