"[Fredric] Wertham hated Superman because he said that Superman promoted fascism...What followed the hearings, though, was all manner of small-town yahoos trying to fine local business owners for selling comics, various local organizations across the country in charge of their town’s Hysteria Over Hypothetical Threats to Children organizations trying to ban comics and persecute those who worked on them, and bills to censor various comics in various nonsensical ways getting pushed through different levels of State and local government throughout the country. There was also a prolonged series of actual book burnings in which thousands of comics were destroyed. What’s amazing is that people like Wertham don’t see that censorship and book burnings might not be the most effective reply to fascism, of all things."

Bryan:"The only show that matters what we think about it is iMPACT. I don't care what the rest of you think about any of these shows but iMPACT, iMPACT sucks!"
Vinny:"It does."
Bryan:"I want you all to stop watching it."
Vinny:"You've come to my side then!"
Bryan:"No, I haven't. Your side is we should stop watching it."
Vinny:"That's part of it, yes. I also encourage others to stop."
Bryan:"No, the problem is if we stop watching it, others may continue to do so. It is our job to watch this show, observe how awful it is, alert everyone else to not watch it, hope that the rating tanks, and that they replace the writing crew before they go out of business."
Vinny:"So you see our duty as something of a noble sacrifice?"
The Bryan And Vinny Show, TNA iMPACT 10/25/2007

"China is not a peaceful place, and there's many people who don't understand the fine art of diplomacy. And the only real way of communicating to these people that there is a better alternative to violence is through ultra-violence. Crush them. Subvert them. Invade them and then demand everything they have. When they give you everything they have, demand everything they don't. When they can't meet this reasonable request, extinguish them, then erase them out of every map, book, or scrap of literature. And that is how you peacefully resolve conflict in Emperor."
