ON CHARLOTTESVILLE, TRUMP, AND ANTI-AMERICANISM, Jonah Goldberg writes: Andy [McCarthy] writes, if you “dare notice the radical Left, you are not an observer of objective fact, you are a neo-Nazi sympathizer. If you dare notice that many of the ‘peaceful protesters’ were swinging batons and spraying chemicals, you need a re-education course in ‘unconscious racism.’” […]
To the editor: I applaud Jonah Goldberg for remaining a member of the “traditional right.” (“The alt-right has gained ground, thanks to a win-at-all-costs strategy,” Opinion, Aug. 15) He says the so-called alt-right won’t replace mainstream conservatism because the overwhelming majority of conservatives...
Jonah Goldberg is fed up: Last year around this time (and the year before that), I was arguing with some of my fellow conservatives about the insanity of finding any common cause whatsoever with the so-called alt-right. The issue wasn’t that every avowed nationalist who claimed membership in the alt-right was a Nazi or Klansman. […]
(Steven Hayward) Jonah Goldberg notes in a recent column that climate change alarmism seems to have turned itself up past 11, probably because (my theory) Trump has driven them out of what little of their minds was left: One of the hallmarks...Show More Summary

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg tries to draw an equivalence between President Trump’s ego-driven tweets and the media’s response to them. Goldberg claims, “The media rival the president in self-absorption and self-regard.” (“There's a word for Trump's relationship with the media: Co-dependence,”...
JONAH GOLDBERG ON THE DANGERS OF ARROGANT IGNORANCE: For many historians, the Polish-born pope’s Mass in Victory Square, more than anything else, set in motion the events that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall a decade later and the dissolution of the Soviet Union soon thereafter. The people in attendance knew exactly what […]
To the editor: Jonah Goldberg may protest this “dumb political moment,” but his uncritical repetition of misleading Republican talking points contributes to the problem. (“Blood money and the death party: Let's tone down the Trumpcare rhetoric,” Opinion, June 27) He passes off at face value the...
Jonah is very upset that Democrats are engaging in the most uncivil act in American political discourse, expressing your visceral loathing for women on a daily basis accurately describing the effects of Republican policy proposals: Two weeks later, many of the very same people are describing Republicans as murderers for proposing changes to Medicaid. “Forget […]

JONAH GOLDBERG ON NANCY MACLEAN’S JAMES BUCHANAN & LIBERTARIANISM BOOK — SHORTCUTS TO EXPOSE EVIL: Indeed, this is all downstream of the century-old effort to turn Herbert Spencer into some kind of monster because he opposed governmental social engineering. The idea seems to be that because the statists are good, anyone who opposes them must […]
Jonah Goldberg suggests today that no one can say what they really believe about health care. Republicans refuse to admit that they don’t really want to repeal Obamacare after all.

Jonah Goldberg is tired of liberals downplaying terrorist attacks with rote claims that terrorism is small potatoes compared to traffic accidents or swimming pool deaths: Imagine if I were to respond to complaints from, say, Black Lives Matter in the same way so many people respond to terrorism: “Yes, yes, this is regrettable. Police shouldn’t […]
To the editor: Jonah Goldberg left out a very important piece of information in his column exploring why the residents of Loma Linda live on average 10 years longer than other Americans. (“Loma Linda residents live a really, really long time. It's not because of their health insurance,” Opinion,...
Let me be upfront – I have zero respect for Jonah “momma’s boy” Goldberg and little respect for fellow rightwing toady Hugh Hewitt. So I did not watch their interview but I did watch Hewitt brag about this part of it: HH: Now I want all of the Comey memos, Jonah, and I don’t think it’s a trap. Show More Summary
