"We have never invested in public education as we should have because we have kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We have not had a collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is that we have to break through our kind private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it is everyone's responsibility and not the household's, then we start making better investments."

Kill them now. Why kill the women in South Africa? I say kill the women because the women are the military manufacturing center. And every nine months they lay down on their backs and reinforcement rolls out from between their legs, so shut down the military manufacturing center by killing the white woman. Why kill the older crackers? The old crippled crackers in South Africa. How in the hell you think they got old? They got old oppressing and killing black people. Kill 'em all. Kill the faggot.

"I would not look to the US Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary... It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the US Constitution, Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It dates from 1982. You would almost certainly look at the European Convention on Human Rights. Yes, why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world?"
-- Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice speaking to Al-Hayat TV, an Egyptian TV station, that she would not recommend the U.S. Constitution as model for Egypt's new government, 30 January 2012

"Why should any one of us feel that ‘it shouldn't be me taking that brick and chucking it through that window? Why shouldn't I be going to that fur farm down the road and opening up those cages? It's not hard; it doesn't take a rocket scientist. You don't need a 4-year degree to call in a bomb hoax. These are easy things, and they're things that save animals: And so I want all of you in this room to, A) Question not just what is right and wrong, but what is effective, And B) why can't all of us be doing it? I think the animal rights movement is strong - that's my opinion. But it's time to start flexing our muscles."

"Patriotism threatens free speech with death. It is infuriated by thoughtful hesitation, constructive criticism of our leaders and pleas for peace. It despises people of foreign birth. It has specifically blamed homosexuals, feminists and the American Civil Liberties Union. In other words, the American flag stands for intimidation, censorship, violence, bigotry, sexism, homophobia and shoving the Constitution through a paper shredder. Whom are we calling terrorists here?"
-- Barbara Kingsolver, novelist, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 27 September 2001

"Now African Americans are supposed to fight and die for a racist corrupt government in yet another imperialist war, when it is the U.S. which has clearly brought on this attack. We are supposed to fight for a country where we still have limited social, economic and political rights, and where we are still subject to death by any racist cop or citizen, where there is widespread poverty, mass imprisonment of the youth, and massive unemployment concentrated in the Black community. The obvious question is what the hell are we fighting for? To avenge America? To mourn America? Why, we don't owe this country anything."
-- Lorenzo Komboa Ervin, CounterPunch

-- Robert Altman, Hollywood Director

Unfortunately we're in a position where people are so irresponsible that human life holds so little value to them."
-- Tom Cruise explains why he wants his kids to be raised in Australia instead of America

"Just one last thing. We are always looking for signs that the country is behaving like its old self again. Tonight at the World Series, if the Yankee fans boo the President, it won't mean necessarily they are unhappy with his leadership, but he did say that he would cheer for anyone but the Yankees in the series. So if New York fans give him the business it just means they're acting like their old selves. And that's probably a good sign."
-- Peter Jennings on the World Series in 2001

-- Anthony "Van" Jones, President Barack Obama's "Green Jobs Czar", 22 January 2009

"I have no issue with property destruction. I think sometimes it's appropriate, sometimes it's not. Again, I look at it strategically. Does this help us or does it hurt us? Does it help us achieve our goal, or does it not? We're in a society where property is idolized, so a lot of people don't get it yet that it doesn't really matter. It's just glass or products."
-- Lisa Fithian

"I want Barack Obama to be president…in 2016. Barack Obama does not have the support network yet to get to be president. The Clintons have — he's — he's smart, he's brilliant.

Wouldn't it be unfortunate if there were a sudden epidemic of hunting accidents?"
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner, 25 July 2009

"Destruction of property, equipment, buildings, machinery, laboratories, and virtually any inanimate human construct or "resource" used in the exploitation, oppression, maiming, raping, or murder of human animals, other animals, or the Earth is not violence. It may be illegal under a system that fetishizes property and profits, but it is not unethical. In fact, in many cases it is the right thing to do."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

"...the animal liberation movement needs to embrace ‘counter-violence to protect innocent beings' as one of many tactics in the war to end the animal holocaust. Attacks on incorrigible, empathy-deficient, sociopathic speciesist animal torturers and murderers by courageous underground militants are both necessary and morally acceptable aspects of the fight to liberate nonhuman animals. From an ethical standpoint, such acts would be readily justifiable as a form of extensional self-defense on behalf of voiceless, defenseless sentient beings."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

"As ridiculously out-numbered as we are, and in light of the overwhelming power of our enemy, we need to confront this multi-headed hydra with as many tactics of asymmetrical engagement and with as much determination as we can muster, battling them within the framework of the inherently corrupt political and legal systems that are heavily stacked in the favor of anthropocentric murderers... and undertaking various forms of direct action on behalf of the billions of nonhuman animals immiserated and annihilated by speciesist capitalism every year."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

"When you least expect it, in a hallway or on an elevator, in the stairwell or going to your car after torturing primates all day, you'll get a much bigger puncture from a 10cc syringe right in your back filled with rat poison, and we'll be gone so fast you'll never know who did it. We know where you go during the day, we know where you do your dry cleaning, we know where you shop and we know that you will end up being cornered and taught a lesson you and your family will never forget. Until you end your experimentation on primates, we'll be in your life forever watching, waiting and then doing to you exactly what you do to them."
-- An Animal Liberation Front (ALF) Communiqué threatening UCLA researchers as reported by Jerry Vlasak's North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAAPO) website on 26 March 2009

"Them Jews ain't going to let him [President Obama] talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office... Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing by the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel."
-- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former Pastor of Trinity United Church speaking to Virginia's Daily Press, 11 June 2009

"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."
-- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in a 2003 sermon

"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."
-- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in a sermon after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001

-- Jane Anne "Janeane" Garofalo, comedian, actress, political activist, writer, and former co-host on Air America Radio's "The Majority Report"

"Yes, I think lots of people are eager to obtain weapons of mass destruction. But there's no evidence that he (Hussein) has weapons of mass destruction. There's been no evidence of him testing nuclear weapons. We have people that are in our face with nuclear weapons. We've got Iran and North Korea. We've got a problem with Pakistan. You know, I don't know what to say about that. There's a whole lot of people that are going nuclear. And I think that Saddam Hussein is actually, with the evidence, the least able to use nuclear weapons and the least obvious offender in that area at this moment."

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American. Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."
-- Ralph Nadar, in an interview with the Rocky Mountain News, 25 June 2008
