Worst of Ethics Award 2022: Most Unethical Quote Of The Year

There were more unethical quotes this year than I recall reading and hearing in a long time, and that’s just the ones Ethics Alarms chose to highlight. Winners in the category included The New York Times (twice) and the Washington Post, CNN’s finally dismissed hack Chris Cuomo, Joy Behar (I just picked one; there were about a hundred or so), Georgetown Law Center’s Dean, William Trainor, Donald Trump (twice!), Chris’s corrupt and disgraced brother, former NY governor Andrew Cuomo, Sen. Lindsay Graham, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Dr. Fauci, Nusrat Jahan Choudhury, a federal court nominee who “explained” in her confirmation hearing that she lied in an address to Princeton students to “make a rhetorical point”; Joe Biden (again, for one of about a hundred 2022 quotes that would qualify); Kamala Harris of course, Nancy Pelosi, Rep Eric Swalwell, Barack Obama, Golden State Warriors owner Chamath Palihapitiya, CNN intelligence analyst Robert Baer, and Van Jones (today!), Ann Hathaway, Media Matters chief Angelo Carusone, Herschel Walker (again, take your pick), AOC (ditto), NY Governor Kathy Hochul, Liz Cheney, GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, GOP Rep. Mary Miller, Democratic Senator Chris Coons, Kim Sill, founder of the Shelter Hope Pet Shop, and Stacey Abrams.

Many of these could have easily been winners in a more temperate year, but President Biden lapped them all with his September, televised “Soul of the Nation” speech that was “wildly unethical…irresponsible, disrespectful, unfair, and un-American, as well as hypocritical, indeed a betrayal, from a leader who promised on his Inauguration Day, “We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. No progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos. This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward.”

Biden gave a fascist speech to accuse his political opponents of being fascists

No American President has ever delivered such a despicable addess. It debased his office, and damaged the Republic. But, to be fair, it may have influenced enough fools to keep Democrats from the mid-term wipe-out they deserved. So there’s that.

Most Unethical Quote of the Year: President Joe Biden

No contest.

    • You captured the problem of what happens when elected officials place more emphasis on their party and their ideals as opposed to solving the problem. Truman’s quote comes to mind.

      “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. ” — Harry S. Truman

  1. “…it may have influenced enough fools to keep Democrats from the mid-term wipe-out they deserved. ”

    Their Fuhrer has spoken! That influence in itself is as scary as the speech, which was scary as hell. I knew it would be your pick this year.

  2. Is the Biden quote the entire speech? I can’t remember if I watched it or if I watched the whole thing. I’ve had to put blinders on when Biden speaks in order to preserve my sanity. Getting chased out of Afghanistan by the Taliban almost broke me.
    I do recall Ben Shapiro’s show on the following day; he dissected it and I was able to laugh at Biden’s obvious lies & misrepresentations from that speech.
    If his entire speech qualifies as the most unethical quote for a year, I think we can wind that all the way back to everything he’s said since New Year’s Day, 2022.

  3. The main problem is that these leftists no longer care if anyone notices or dares to call them out for their lies or unethical blather. They know all they need do is ignore any that point out their lies and with the assistance of the FBI/DOJ/IRS and the corrupt media’s censorship, nothing will come of it.

    They no longer care what the people think, because they have the power and consider themselves to be untouchable.
