The Year in Jindal

Bobby J's Top Quotes in 2015



Bobby Jindal did not spend much of 2016 in Louisiana. Still, local voters received a hearty serving of soundbites from da Gov’. With his term nearing an end and his ill fated campaign rolled up, we won’t have too much Bobby in 2016. So, NoDef is looking back at our favorite Jindal quotes from 2015 on everything from Trump to discrimination.

 

On Discrimination in America (ABC News)

“The biggest discrimination going on in America is against Christian business owners.”

 

On Donald Trump (National Press Club)

“You may have recently seen that after Trump said the Bible is his favorite book, he couldn't name a single Bible verse or passage that meant something to him. And we all know why, because it's all just a show, and he hasn't ever read the Bible. But you know why he hasn't read the Bible? Because he's not in it.”

 

On Chris Christie’s Results (GOP Debate)

“Look Chris, I’ll give you a ribbon for participation and a juicebox.”

 

On the Confederate Flag (ABC News)

“We'll let the states decide that, but again, just like the gun issue -- let's have that debate at the right time. And right now we should all be in mourning. I think flags should be at half-mast across our states across our country. Now's a time for mourning. Now's the time to tell our kids it really doesn’t matter, we're all brothers and sisters ... I happen to be a Christian, and those are brothers and sisters of mine in my faith. Whether you're Christian or not -- whatever you wish -- those were our brothers and sisters, it doesn’t matter if in South Carolina, it doesn’t matter [if you are] Black or White, young or old -- those were our brothers and sisters killed in that church.”

 

On Unproven Claims of No-Go Zones in England (Fox News)

”In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.”

 

On his Election Chances (WSJ)

“When the front-runners are still clumped together around 10 percent, what that tells me there is a path wide open for folks. I get the sense that voters are saying this isn’t about just one good impression.”

 

On Evil (to Fox News)

“I’m a Christian, my faith teaches me there’s evil and sin in the world and no powerful government can eradicate that. I’m not saying government needs to give up -- this president has the government doing too many things, but it’s not going to eradicate evil…”

 

On Obama’s Gun Comments Following a Mass Shooting (to Fox News)

“I think it was completely shameful, that within 24 hours of this awful tragedy, nine people killed at a bible study at a church. We have the president trying to score cheap political points. Let him have this debate next week. His job as commander in chief is to help the country begin the healing process… For whatever reason, he always tries to divide us. Today was not the moment.”

 

On Polls (to the Des Moines Register)

"I'm not going to base my decision off whether I'm going to run on poll numbers or fundraising or consultants. I think our next president has to be someone that wants to do something, not just be someone.”

 

On Dropping Out of the Race (Facebook)

"Now is the time for all those Americans who still believe in freedom and American exceptionalism to stand up and defend it. The idea of America – the idea that my parents came here for almost a half a century ago - that idea is slipping away from us. Freedom is under assault from both outside our borders and from within. We must act now, we do not have a moment to spare."
