I’ve always considered myself too individualistic to be either right-wing or left-wing. I like the libertarian view, which is to leave everyone alone. People should be able to be what they want to be and do what they want – as long as they’re not harming other people. I am a libertarian.” ~ Clint Eastwood

Their common disdain for Christianity explains why left-wing judges in America find any inkling of Christianity in the public square unconstitutional, while Islamist judges in the Middle East deem it executable. Their common view that life is expendable explains the left’s embrace abortion-on-demand and why the Islamists don’t hesitate to deploy their own children for homicide bombings.” ~ Gary Bauer
  10. “Left wing, chicken wing, it don’t make no difference to me.” ~ Woody Guthrie
  11. “Left-wing zealots have often been prepared to ride roughshod over due process and basic considerations of fairness when they think they can get away with it.

But with two right wings or two left wings, it’s no longer an eagle and it’s going to crash.” ~ Bill Moyers
  22. “[Albert]Camus had denounced the gulag and Stalin’s trials. Today we can see that he was right. To say that there were concentration camps in the USSR at the time was blasphemous, something very serious indeed. Today we think about the USSR with the camps also in mind, but before it just wasn’t allowed. Nobody was allowed to think that or say that if you were left-wing.” ~ Catherine Camus
  23. “These self-anointed intellectuals are people who think that those who believe in God and Jesus Christ, those who ‘cling to their guns and their religion,’ are a lower form of animal life, while they, themselves, have no problem whatever accepting Obama as a messiah and, in the past, deifying the likes of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Let’s face it, when you kneel in a church, you’re accepting that there is something greater and wiser than yourself in the universe. When, on the other hand, you kneel to a left-wing politician, you’re merely emulating Monica Lewinsky.” ~ Burt Prelutsky

  25. “Only someone as puffed up and demented as John Maynard Keynes, every left-wing fascist’s sainted mentor in this connection, could manage to convince himself that taxing America’s Productive Class can restore it to prosperity. In point of fact, it’s like screwing for chastity, guzzling alcohol for sobriety, or gorging to fight gluttony. It’s like killing indiscriminately for peace – oops, Democrats, Republicans and their moral and spiritual ilk have devoutly believed that particular bit of perverse nonsense since at least the War of 1812.” ~ L. Neil Smith
  26. “Most of us agree that the United Nations is the vanguard of a foreign invasion and must be driven from our shores. Liberalism – Progressivism – all forms of left-wing collectivism, are equally alien to the Founders’ America and must be extirpated, root and branch, laughter and derision being the most effective weapons. Look at the way they have reduced Hillary Clinton to an insignificant greasy spot on the pages of history, turned Albert Gore into an object of merriment, and are accomplishing the same for Barry and Micky Obama.” ~ L. Neil Smith
  27. “No left-wing parties have any respect for liberal economic values; and most center and right-wing parties merely promote a paternalistic stateism.

  28. “It is not the lefty ass-kissers you have to agitate, but the objective left-wing…” ~ Gudrun Ensslin

  31. “Mr. Jones’s book is a cleareyed examination of the British class system, and it poses this brutal question: ‘How has hatred of working-class people become so socially acceptable?’ His timely answers combine wit, left-wing politics and outrage.” ~ Dwight Garner

  39. “Barack Obama, who might be mercifully closing the Clinton parenthesis in presidential history, is refreshingly cerebral amid this recrudescence of the paranoid style in American politics. He is the un-Edwards and un-Huckabee – an adult aiming to reform the real world rather than an adolescent fantasizing mock-heroic ‘fights’ against fictitious villains in a left-wing cartoon version of this country.” ~ George Will
  40. “I’m not left-wing, or right-wing. With only one wing I couldn’t fly, and I just couldn’t have that.” ~ Dennis Sharp

  41. “Of course, the Clintons are not only corrupt but cynical as well.

  42. “When most people see the word “radical,” they think that it must refer to something left wing. Some people also may think of it as referring to far right-wing marginal groups. But here we have a president of the United States [George W. Bush] at the center of power, sitting in the White House, who is a radical.” ~ Sidney Blumenthal
  43. “That is like in my parents’ generation, Walter Cronkite. If you were gonna go into broadcasting, if you weren’t gonna be Walter Cronkite, you may as well not go into it.

The left wing says you have to forget about Jewish self-determination, you will have to live as a minority in an Arab state – just like the whites in South Africa. The key word that both have in mind is that the situation in the West Bank is “irrevocable.” It is one of the words I dislike the most.” ~ Amos Oz
  47. “If you look at Drudge and if you see headlines that portend the end of the world tomorrow, don’t click on it. Just avoid the crap that pollutes the daily so-called news that comes from left-wing news organizations. You will be amazed. And it doesn’t take long, either. Just two days. You go on a Drive-By Media fast, two days of it, and your outlook on life will be dramatically improved.” ~ Rush Limbaugh

  49. “At the moment we have a critical situation in Greece. Even as we speak, where there is an open attempt by the EU to destroy Syriza by splitting it. There is a German obstinacy and utter refusal to seriously consider an alternative. The reason isn’t even a lack of money, because money swims around the EU coffers endlessly, and they could write off the debt tomorrow if they wanted. But they don’t want to do so, because of the election of a left-wing government. They want to punish Syriza in public, to humiliate it so that this model doesn’t go any further than Greece.” ~ Tariq Ali
  50. “The country you’re born in is where your passport comes from. No, not according to Donald Trump! No, not at all. I resent that kind of extremism of any kind. Left wing, right wing.

  51. “I have privileges even in comparison to a Palestinian Israeli because Palestinian Israelis who live permanently in Ramallah risk their status, not as citizens but as residents. They might lose their social rights if they move to Ramallah. But I won’t, so I live with privileges. That notion is very difficult for me as a child who was raised in a left-wing family, a family of people who suffered discrimination as Jews abroad. The notion that I am so privileged is disgusting. But this is what it means to live in a white society. You are white, so you are privileged.” ~ Amira Hass

  54. “I don’t even know what being left wing means anymore.

  55. “The left are not bipartisan. Somebody give me an example of left-wing bipartisanship. They don’t even define it the way we do. Bipartisanship, as they define it, as in we cave on our core beliefs and agree with them. That is bipartisanship. There is no compromise.” ~ Rush Limbaugh

  57. “Because the left, George Bush won two elections, 2000 and 2004. So 2008, we didn’t see. It was obviously there.

  58. “You want to unify America with a sense of culture and decency and all of this that reasserts and reaffirms the concepts of American exceptionalism.But the left and who they are, you watch Hollywood, you watch the Oscars, you watch any left-wing, it’s not even Democrat.

My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.”” ~ Chris Hayes
  64. “As for the European far left, it has very little to do with Marxism-Leninism these days. It has more to do with anti-Semitism, racism, anti-migration. They claim to be left-wing but they’re espousing positions which would actually be classically brown.” ~ Toomas Hendrik Ilves
