On Monday, Elon Musk announced his deal intended to restore free speech to Twitter. Ironically, this was a day when it seemed even more people than usual said and tweeted incredibly false, twisted, insulting, disgraceful, confused and just downright stupid things. I mean, it was one jaw-dropping statement after another. (To be accurate, some were first said a few days back, but they got extra mileage on Monday.)

Yet, because we do believe in free speech, we want to make the point that none of these statements should be censored in any way. We WANT the people saying them to continue to express themselves freely, because what they say tells us what they really think and reminds us that we should keep them away from power at all costs.

At the same time, just because we don’t censor them doesn’t mean we won’t have a little fun with them. So we thought we’d list just these four and let you, the readers, tell us in the comments which one you think is the worst:

#1. (From JEN PSAKI, on whether the Biden administration feels any responsibility for a border guard’s drowning.) “Well, of course we are mourning the loss of his life and we are grateful for the work of every national guardsmen. I would note that the national guard work for the states, so he is an employee of the Texas National Guard and his efforts and his operation were directed by [them], not by the federal government in this effort.”

(NOTE: My writers, who live in Texas –- very near where this Guardsman was from, in fact –- might have to go with Psaki’s detestable, blame-shifting quote.)

#2. (From disgraced Lincoln Project co-founder RICK WILSON, on the election in France.) “Macron should understand that his enemies abroad — Putin, [Steve] Bannon, [Glenn] Greenwald et al — won’t rest and won’t stop coming. They need to mow them down before a cleaner, smarter version of Le Pen emerges. Complacency is death for democracies. In America, too many believe that being rid of Trump ended the threat to our republic.”

(NOTE: Yes, Wilson did actually say “mow them down.” And his follow-up Tweet was "Antifa isn't real.")

#3. (From left-wing activist SHAUN KING, on why Elon Musk is REALLY buying Twitter.) "At its root, @ElonMusk wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right. It’s about white power. The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist. He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”

(NOTE: There were numerous Twitter variations on the Elon Musk/apartheid theme from crazed liberals. We’re letting Shaun King’s stand in for them all.)

#4. (From PRESIDENT BIDEN, when asked about delaying the end of Title 42 at the border.) “No. What I’m considering is continuing to hear from my — my — First of all, there’s gonna be an appeal by the Justice Department. Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we’d be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42.”

NOTE: President Biden gets a bonus quote, from when he was asked about Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education law: “There’s nothing conservative about deciding you’re going to throw Disney out of its present posture because Mickey Mouse? In fact, do you think we should be not be able to say, you know, ‘gay’? I mean, what’s going on here?”

So, readers, who wins WORST QUOTE OF THE DAY?

1. Jen Psaki

2. Rick Wilson

3. Shaun King

4. President Biden

    #4. President Biden wins, per usual when he goes off-script especially.

    You may have already tabulated these results. I’m just catching up on last week’s emails!

    Really tough decision! But, really, don’t we just expect this utter stupidity from ALL of these people? Shaun is obviously a racist. Jen is just a born idiot. I’ll have to go w Biden, the presidency thief, since, if you’re going to steal control of a government, you should at least be coherent

    Enjoy reading your postings. Guns are not the problem, it's the parents who have failed to teach their kids, and has never taken them to church. The Left also have never visited a church. Speech is learned from hearing. Thank you for a great Newsletter.

    It’s really hard to pick! If I have to I’d say King and Biden tie.

    The puppet president has the worst quote. They are ALL bad but he wins because he is supposedly the most powerful.

    Mike, I hate to say this, but all of these people turn my stomach. And I pride myself on being able to eat really spicy food. But none of these idiots are worth it for me to loose my lunch.

    I vote the worst quote to Shaun King, et al of his ilk.
