Well, Jonah decided to educate his right-wing followers about young people,
“I don’t think youth politics is something very special or enviable. Personally, I think the voting age should be much higher not lower. I think it was a mistake to lower it to 18, to be brutally honest.”Ah yes! Social Science which is as squishy as the giant band of fat encircling Jonah's brain and midsection.
"It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth. So we should really explain to them why they’re “so frickin’ stupid about some things. We’re all born idiots, and we only get over that condition as we get less young.
"The fact that young people think socialism is better than capitalism. That’s proof of what social scientists call their stupidity and their ignorance. And that’s something that conservatives have to beat out of them. Either literally or figuratively as far as I’m concerned."
However, I sure hope Faux News runs with the Conservatives have to beat young people literally to get them to vote Republican story as much as the New Black Panther Party video! You know who else wanted to restrict voting rights? Adolf Hitler and the Nazis! But, somehow video of blubbering, man-boobed, fleshy-faced Jonah threatening to have conservatives beat young people into voting "Right" isn't that scary...
Moreover, this is basically a warmed-over version of the If you're not a liberal at 20 you have no heart and if you're not a conservative at 30 you have no brain quote falsely attributed to Winston Churchill. So, besides being a literary hack, a chicken hawk coward and a liar (Jonah and his publisher have been claiming he has "twice been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize" when he never had) Jonah's also a sloppy plagiarist.
Sadly, Jonah Goldberg embodies everything wrong with conservatives in one fat corpulent form. He inherited his position at the National Review Online from his mother. He's never done a real day's work. Of course, Jonah is also a rank coward and chicken hawk warmonger (when Republicans are in power) who fastidiously shirked military duty to remain at his keyboard "defending" America.
Besides what I've mentioned Jonah has no credentials or accomplishments and he is clearly doing the bidding of the Plutocracy yet despite his utter lack of anything positive he is treated as a Very Serious Person.
On the release of his second manifesto about mean liberals, Goldberg got into a tiff with Piers Morgan when Piers asked Jonah how much the military operation to Kill Bin Laden cost. Jonah rather than admitting he has no knowledge of anything military related and would rather talk about how mean President Obama is, got flustered, and highlighted his hog-shit ignorance [See My Post: Jonah Goldberg pouts because Piers Morgan is mean and conservatives are Hypocrites].
But, even after Jonah proved he and his work is nothing more than recycled hog shit, Jonah keeps on talking about the military.
On Memorial Day, Jonah spoke about how he studied the military. Now mind you Jonah doesn't actually know anything about the military and he wouldn't go onto a military base to talk to active service members or to a VFW to talk to Vets. No Jonah spent his Memorial Day at the same place he spent the Iraq War, a Keyboard,
“I spent part of my Memorial Day going over some of the demographics of veterans,” Goldberg said. “And it shouldn’t actually shock us that Romney is doing well. It seems to me that if you were a traditional military voter, you might have some serious problems with Obama. The way he sometimes talks about the military, he talks about the troops — it can often seem narcissistic, political, and rub people the wrong way."Leaving aside Jonah's continued despicable comments about the President's character, something he knows even less about than the Military, Jonah, like his mother before him, is nothing more than a paid goon for Rich right-wingers to attack Liberals. Jonah Goldberg has "seen the elephant" and he won't stop stroking him.
