Quotes of the Day


“You’re tough. If somebody says something you don’t agree with, just engage them on their ideas.”

“[Y]ou don’t have to feel that somehow because you’re a black woman that you’re being assaulted,” he said. “But speak up for yourself, and if you hear somebody saying something that’s insulting, feel free to say to that guy, ‘You know what? You’re rude’ or ‘you’re ignorant’ and take them on.”Technically Still the President of the United States, Barack Obama, courtesy of Breitbart, a reliable web site.

    “You’re tough. If somebody says something you don’t agree with, run to the safe space, grab the crayons and color a picture. Have some cookies and milk, while you cuddle with your blankie and your stuffed animals. Find your fellow travelers and let them tell you how racist and xenophobic those people are, and how strong you were to run away.”

    “[Y]ou don’t have to feel that somehow because you’re a black woman that you’re being assaulted,” he said. “You could be a fat, ugly lesbian witch, or a pan-Asian Hispanic male who is titillated by the sight of men in tight pants and feel that way, too. But speak up for yourself. Use clever, repetitive chants that don’t really mean anything, and if you hear somebody saying something that upsets the preconceptions of reality that we’ve worked so hard to indoctrinate you with for all these years, feel free to say to that guy, ‘You know what? You’re racist, and misogynist, and bigoted, and xenophobic, and homophobic, and Islamophobic, and agoraphobic, and claustrophobic, and arachnophobic, and all the other phobics I can’t think of right now, and you and your ideas and your words trigger me in an irrational way, so I’m going to run screaming in the opposite direction and find a therapy dog to pet,’ and hope to God he doesn’t own the company that provides the therapy dogs.”
