"The truth is extreme. To make it moderate is to lie” is a saying of somewhat uncertain origin.

(The tweets of Mickey Herouin are private.) “The truth is extreme, to make it moderate is to lie” was posted on Waiting for the Storm (archived on June 8, 2010). “‘The Truth is Extreme, To Make it Moderate is to Lie.’ - Aaron Hawkins” was posted on Twitter by Adam FREEDOM!
