I was reading a comment to a blog post in which a lefty troll claimed “In fact, Trump has done more to enable and empower the forces of left-illiberalism than anyone on the left“.

I was surprised by how hard it was to find this quote. IMDB didn’t have it (wut?) nor did a lot of other Forrest Gump quote sites. I finally found the quote in its entirety here, a site that looks to be, like mine, a collection of interesting things or, of course, a Thing Finder. Thanks to the maintainer of that site.
