“The math remains terrible. Support for socialism is rising among Democrats, illegal immigration in combination with birthright citizenship is flipping key states to the leftists, the debt is spiraling out of control even as Democrats promise obscene record spending, and liberals continue to control nearly every cultural institution in America.” – Fletch Daniels, “Trump stands between America and tyranny” – American Thinker, October 14th, 2019.

“These Antifa protesters are a small minority of violent thugs. The most frightening is that their extremist, Far Left ideology is now tacitly supported by many in academia, the media, activist organizations, and politics. Our democracy is in danger.” – People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, quoted by Chris Tomlinsin in “Far-left extremists arrested at populist Canadian election event” – Breitbart, September 30th 2019.

“Normally, in a free market economy, companies that make products that people don’t want go out of business. They shrink, they shrivel. Planned Parenthood instead does some industrial scaling upward. Conclusion? This is not a market dynamic, this is the project of big government and big billionaires foisting an abhorrent project onto the public that the public doesn’t want.” – Monica Showalter, “Planned Parenthood builds giant secret supercenter for industrial scale abortions” – American Thinker, October 3rd, 2019.

“I think there is a general dwindling of civility in this election… Polarization is a consistent theme, pitting an array of communities against one another, vilifying some, marginalizing others… The presence of the party is part of a broader environment of hate – one also occupied by the likes of [Donald] Trump, [Doug] Ford and other similar fear-mongers.” – Professor Barbara Perry, director of the Centre on Hate, Bias and Extremism at Ontario Tech University, quoted by Alex Cosh in “Extreme right-wing narratives gain momentum in federal election, despite parties struggling in polls” – Rabble, October 12th, 2019.

“The fact that you’ve got supposed adults… pushing ideas on a 16-year-old girl and using her as a pawn, is just disgusting; it’s child abuse… Just stop brainwashing the kids and being negative and teach them how to be positive about making good positive changes for the world, not all doom and gloom… You’ve gotta teach kids to be happy and positive and it’s all well and good to be concerned about the environment and wanting to teach kids good practices and basically not be grubs and throw litter around and this sort of thing, but you don’t have to be a greenie to do that” – A parent, quoted by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. in “Australian father pulls son out of school over climate change brainwashing” – Breitbart, October 5th, 2019.
