There's irrational fear, then there's fear of Trump and his Republican enablers

To the editor: Bravo to Jonah Goldberg for overcoming his “healthy” fears of “snakes, sharks, and falling out of an airplane.” Those fears are personal and not especially healthy.

For the sake of the country, Republicans must wise up to the fact that Trump will never be presidential

To the editor: Not often one to agree with Jonah Goldberg, I commend him for voicing thoughts privately held by many fellow conservatives.

There is no Milo Yiannopoulos of the left. Why is that?

Ask Language Log: -ism exceptionalism

Jonah Goldberg, "The Trouble with Nationalism", National Review 2/7/20 But I firmly believe that when we call the sacrifices of American patriots no different from the sacrifices of Spartans — ancient or modern — we are giving short shrift to the glory, majesty, and uniqueness of American patriotism and the American experiment. I’m reminded of […]

Trump will make Russia great again — and Republicans are letting him do it

Rational government can return only when Trump leaves the White House

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg, a rare conservative who refuses to be blinded by President Trump’s glitter, nevertheless suggests that he will move to the center.

DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE: Jonah Goldberg on “The ‘Reasonabilists’ of Berkeley:” I hate to give any credence to this “triggering” nonsense, but every time I hear it, it sets me off like I’m Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone has just said my hair looks stupid. Even on Fox News people say it, and I’m […]

Jonah Goldberg: Campuses Are 'Soft, Totalitarian States'

The left does “Groundhog Day”

IT’S FUNNY, but when you read this David Frum apocalyptic take on Trump’s “autocracy,” the future he fears sounds a lot like the FDR administration’s policies as described in Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change.

Birther Donald Trump vs. civil rights hero John Lewis

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg demonstrates that the editorial counterpart to “fake news” is “fake logic” in the opinion section. (“Trump says he'll unite the country. Yeah, right,” Opinion, Jan. 16) He starts by blithely stating, “Put aside Trump’s specific shortcomings for the moment,” and then...

Trump's tweets: refreshing or abnormal?

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg calls Donald Trump’s Twitter addiction a management style of “government by Twitter.” The very thought is frightening.

THE SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE: The Nazis Fought the Original War on Christmas. Who knew? Other than everyone who read Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism eight years ago, that is.

So, Not Really “Never” Then

Mr. Jonah Goldberg, everyone: The thing is: Never Trump is over. Never Trump was about the GOP primary and the general election, not the presidency. The Left wants to claim it must be a permanent movement, denying the legitimacy of Trump’s election forever, or we were never serious. Well, that’s not what we — or […]
