Quote of the Day — Van Jones (October 5, 2014)

In an appearance on ABC's This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos, former Obama official Van Jones is quoted as saying:
This Ebola thing is the best argument you can make for the kind of government that we believe in.
In a cross-fire discussion over how Democrats can win in the upcoming elections, Van Jones is actually advocating "weaponizing" Ebola — that is, making a political weapon out of the Ebola crisis.

As Jeffrey Meyer of Newsbusters points out, the Democrats must be getting desperate if they're willing to try using a lethal pandemic to score more votes.

Sadly, though, I can't say as this surprises me. "Progressives" have long been off the rails, and their moral compass isn't exactly calibrated to the same standards as mine. Or, I suspect, yours, dear readers.

And make no mistake, the kind of government "Progressives" believe in is the kind under which you aren't allowed to choose what you eat or drink, whether you can keep your doctor or health plan, what you write or say in public or whether that camera actually belongs to you (unless you're an "Authorized Journalist"), where or when (or whether) you can carry your gun in public, where your children are educated or by whom, or a million other things we take for granted, every day. Under this kind of government, those choices will be made for you, for your own good.

Found via this post over at Legal Insurrection, where some of the comments are also excellent. As a bonus QOTD, I'll include this one from commenter "Anchovy":
Ebola kills people.
Dead people vote overwhelmingly for democrats.
Ebola can bring you the kind of government democrats believe in.
