Butt-hurt of the day


Don't know why. Maybe he shelled out $2.99 for the Kindle version and read my book. He joins a long list of block heads, including Kevin Williamson, John Podhoretz, and a few lefties.

  2. I used to like Jonah, but something really strange has happened to him. It's not just his anti-Trump hysteria. Lately, everything he's written sounds like the whining of a petulant five-year-old. It's sad, because he wrote some excellent stuff in the past.

  3. I liked Jonah for a long time, especially Liberal Fascism, but he has taken an odd turn lately. Perhaps he is under a double strain these days, what with the effort in writing another book combined with all of the #NeverTrump angst. - Elric

    2. Liberal Fascism was just another symptom of the disease of letting the liberals set the agenda and complaining about it while going along for the ride. Liberalism on a lag. Goldberg has been found out. Nothing but another neocon. You could say globalism was/is in his blood.

    3. Yeah, I liked him too. Now I know not to contribute to NRO, and not to comment there since they went with (left-facing) Facebook.

  4. The Tea Party was a shot across their bow which they ignored. Now comes the Trump torpedo and they are freaking out.

      at the bow, midships and stern.

  7. Like others above, and Don I imagine, I used to be a fan of Jonah Goldberg.

    But now I cannot get over the irony of the author of "Liberal Fascism" calling Don an "ass", and blocking him, for the crime of asking Goldberg to acknowledge that he is, by his actions, actively enabling Hillary to pack the Supreme Court with her picks.

    Obviously, that is exactly what he's doing. It's not complicated. Yet he can't admit that, and decides to call people names for pointing this out? Whatever. I do not need that kind of petulant punditry in my life.

  8. Nowhere on National Review nor on Commentary can I find anyone who bad-mouthed Don Surber to readers. The fact that you disrespect Williamson, Goldberg and Podhoretz here is not a strike against these well-known conservative writers.

    Goldberg did write:

    A few minutes ago on Twitter, the great semi-retired editorialist Don Surber said to me, regarding Trump, “You will come around. Others may not because they are childish.”

    No. Just no.


    Responding to this Don Surber post, Jeff Brokaw amazingly denounces Jonah Goldberg for writing "Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change" and blames him for enabling Hillary to pack the Supreme Court. First of all, it sounds like he has tossed the election to her already and second Goldberg is not about to vote for Hillary and his non-vote for Trump affected nothing in the primary. As for calling Don Surber an "ass," even if he did it (and if true, I couldn't find it) would be nothing less than the words tossed around here in the comments about Jonah. But the fact is that Jonah has respectfully crossed swords on twitter with Don and came out ahead.

    In the old days, before Trump, conservatives didn't get nasty with conservatives, but things have changed or perhaps the attacking people calling themselves conservatives are really extreme right-wingers. Goldberg, Williamson and Podhoretz have done their very best to convince the country that Trump is a danger to our freedom and to our economy but that only makes Trump folks angry instead of thoughtful. There is no cure for that stubbornness.

    1. Read my comment again, slower, out loud if you have to. Limit your apparent confirmation bias tendency and focus on the words that are **actually** there. Then realize that you invented everything you accused me of in your reply, and don't really know what you're rambling about in this specific case.

      But I'm the stubborn one? OK.

      You Never Trump types are a little more impressed with your intellect, and understanding of actual people and what they care about, than you have a right to be. I've got news for you: intellectuals are just full of shit sometimes.

  9. And he never did answer your Supreme Court question.

  10. Donald Trump wants to build a wall, deport illegals, halt at least temporarily muslim immigration, lower income and corporate taxes, and encourage outsourced jobs to return to the US. hilLIARy will turn us into a third world country, increase taxes, and deepen the War on White Men. Trump has created tens of thousands of jobs directly. hilLIARy has not created one. But Trump "is a danger to our freedom and our economy"? Boy you are going to have to unpack that hallucination of a statement for me. While you are at it please define "freedom" and "economy."
