FotG Jonah Goldberg has it exactly right when he explains what the Israeli blockade is really about and what it truly symbolizes. Better still, he asks some tough questions: if the UN is so pissed off about Israels collective punishment …Continue reading →
Under the rubric “Liberal Fascism: The Font,” Jonah points us to this fun piece on the documentary Helvetica, by Ed Driscoll (whose blog is also linked at left). Mr. D. writes (emphasis ours): And just check out the block of …Continue reading →
Hey, man, come follow the Gormogons on Twitter. All the cool kids are doing it. Proof? You want proof? So, who’s cool? Well, among pale, shut-in, overeducated, alcoholic, right-wing paranoiacs—we hear—someone who’s cool is Jonah Goldberg, the Mobutu Sésé Seko …Continue reading →
Over in the Corner, Jonah Goldberg got flamed by some guy who seems to want to exculpate Rousseau, “smart people,” and “intellectuals” from murderous frenzy of the French Revolution. The historical nuts and bolts come later. Feel free to skip …Continue reading →
