WEEKEND QUOTABLES

People celebrate the Office Van Dyke guilty verdict at 71st Street and Jeffery Boulevard on Oct. 5, 2018. (Tribune)




Former Yale Law School Dean Robert Post
"For as long as Kavanaugh sits on the court, he will remain a symbol of partisan anger, a haunting reminder that behind the smiling face of judicial benevolence lies the force of an urgent will to power." -- The Hill
Lone black woman on the Van Dyke jury
“We didn’t come here because of race. We came here for right or wrong.” -- Bock Club Chicago
Emma González
Going up against the country’s largest gun lobby organization was obviously something that needed to be done, but it means that the people we’re arguing against are the ones with the guns. -- New York Times
Taylor Swift
 I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love." -- ABC News
Sen. Chuck Grassley
Asked why women don't serve on the Judiciary Committee, he responded: “It’s a lot of work — maybe they don’t want to do it." -- The Hill 
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono 
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono has been quietly continuing her practice of asking every federal judiciary nominee whether they have ever been accused of sexual misconduct for months now. And to anyone who would criticize her for it, or for her other pointed questions about their commitment to civil rights, Hirono has just two words: "F*** them!"  -- Newsweek
