QuotesEdit

2000sEdit

  • [D]escribed the worship of power as "the new religion in Europe." Anti-Americanism, predicated in part on fascism's mirror image, the revilement of power–especially when that power is somebody else's–answers many of the fundamental needs once filled by the Church. There is a transcendant and common goal.

2010sEdit

  • [F]ury is an emotion that I pride myself on *controlling.* Civilization depends upon the control of our instincts--aggression foremost among them. May I suggest rolling back the conversation a bit...
  • I do not like the Democrats. At all. After the year-long sex panic and the Kavanaugh spectacle, frankly, I loathe them.
  • I'll be voting for the Democrats again in the coming election, however much I don't think they deserve my vote. And I'll pray that someone in America has the courage and the ability to form a new political party. This should not be beyond us. We're an accomplished nation.
  • Washington is the most intensely parochial city in the world.
