ANSWER Me![edit]

  • If I cared about what you thought, I'd be writing for National Geographic or something.
  • This is the real thing, brains lying on the ground, and the spectators love it.
  • Can you imagine a higher moral calling than to destroy someone’s dreams with one bullet…?

The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies, Hicks and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats (Simon & Schuster, 1997)[edit]

  • Written history, like the missionary position, is an act executed from the top looking down.
  • Crank is to coffee what sexual homicide is to a goodnight kiss.
  • All the holy scriptures of all the world's major religions are nonsense.
  • Jesus is dead. Moses is dead. Mohammed is dead. Buddha, deceased. Every one of these know-it-alls has turned to dust. That should be enough commentary on whether they were the final word on anything.
  • Even though tax protest is portrayed as extremism, most Americans probably cheat on their tax reports.
  • I can’t appreciate someone else’s history if I’m forced to reject and feel ashamed about mine.
  • Racial struggles are never purely racial.
  • If indigenous Amazonian tribes were subjects to acid rain, the liberals were emotionally devastated. But if a trailer park of white trash across town all got cancer because they lived atop a toxic dump, it was a joke.

Shit Magnet: One Man's Miraculous Ability to Absorb the World's Guilt (Feral House, 2002)[edit]

  • Life grows short. Have you done everything you wanted to do, or have you played it safe?
  • Shit can be used as fertilizer.
  • If you don't take risks, you're already dead.
  • The City of Angels. In all the years I've lived here, I haven't seen one fucking angel.
  • Roaches. If you see one of them, there's fifty thousand more where that came from.
  • Everybody says I'm a bad kid, so I guess I am.
  • Some would like to pretend that violence is unnatural. Idiots.
  • I never wanted an easy life.
  • Place something good in front of me, and I'll smash it to pieces.
  • Now I know why women have a hole between their legs. That's where they hide all their problems.
  • Every black guy who was in my cell said he respected nazis and no one else because they presume everyone is tribal and everyone is a racist. They know where they stand with the nazis. They're not going to stab them in the back. They will stab them while looking at them, which is preferable.
