Sure, I'll Join The Googlebomb Party.



Liberal Fascism.

I don't want to be unkind here. My argument is not with anyone's mother or weight or complete lack of sexual attractiveness. I wouldn't want anyone to discuss me that way, and let's follow the Golden Rule at least that far.

What I hate about Goldberg and his book is that we live in an age where "writing" a "book" is done consciously and exclusively as a gateway to attention-whore your insane and ludicrous political "philosophy" in other media. Using book publishing that way hurts American discourse. Period. That isn't Goldberg's fault, but it is his fault that he goes about attacking "liberals" and (gag me here) the "Secret History of the American Left" in an effortless and brainless way merely to get that media attention.

That, my friend, is being a fuckwad.

And all the while Coulter, O'Reilly, Goldberg and the rest can add "published author" to their list of self-aggrandizing delusions.

Hey, why don't we all join The Conservative Book Club and get Doughy's masterpiece for a buck? On second thought...

  2. Well, 'bless Jonah's heart', as others more kind might say.

    He has labored 'mightily' (and by 'mightily' we may infer using a signing statement to render its meaning to 'hardly') and brought forth a rancid mouse in a bottle of off-brand beer. Time to hustle the brewery for a couple of free cases.

    Adolph Hitler a tree-hugging liberal? Oh, of course - Never mind that silly history thingie told from myriad viewpoints, yet recalling the same things about fascism and those miserable creatures who espouse it as a method to power...We must further the narrative by any means necessary that 24% of the populace is right for being Right and the other 76% are big poopyheads who have failed conservatism.

    Does anyone remember an era when mainstream political commentary carried at least a kernel of lucidity within it?

    Or do we now live in times where anyone can say anything, no matter how patently ludicrous and be granted gravitas and publishing advances for doing so?

    Uncritical thinking will be the death of civilization.

  3. If nothing else then Mr. G's efforts will at least create a baedecker of current thought as to what constitutes Liberal waywardness. I've been stumbling upon a great many on the other side who have harped on the subject but not consistently. My personal pet peeve were those who thought Lord Keynes was little more than Albert Speer with an Oxford accent.

    Guess I'd better go put a copy on reserve at the King County lirbabry just to see what the fuss is all about.

  4. Though I don't approve of bombs that are not being dropped on our enemies and unlucky civilians who happen to get in the way, I thought you might want to know that someone else has a different idea for a Googlebomb, which I do not endorse.

  6. jonah is a good guy i'm sure..... too bad he is an idiot. liberalism is categorically different than fascism, though he is probably pretty familiar with fascism on his side of the street.

    Quiz:

    a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. 

    a political or social philosophy advocating the freedom of the individual, parliamentary systems of government, nonviolent modification of political, social, or economic institutions to assure unrestricted development in all spheres of human endeavor, and governmental guarantees of individual rights and civil liberties.

    which one is the definition for Liberalism and which is the definition for Fascism?

    maybe Jonah isn't an idiot..... any idiot would be able to assign the correct definition with the correct word.

    From Wikipedia: After graduation, he taught English in Prague for under a year before moving to Washington to take a job at the American Enterprise Institute.

    Well, that explains it. Doughy's nipples implode with despair.

    Regards,

  8. but--but, it was the National SOCIALIST German Workers Party! Don't you see? That PROVES Hitler was a liberal!

    Interestingly enough, my local paper has started carrying Ann Coulter's excretions as a "counterweight" to my column. Imagine my joy.

  9. And to think, this only took Doughbob Loadpants five years to write...

    Ye gods, that's impressive! I don't think I could avoid reading or speaking to another human for that long!

    Er... that is how he researched this thing, isn't it?

  10. So far, fuckwad is on the fifth page of Google results if you're looking up Jonah Goldberg. I submitted a special definition to Urban Dictionary, but I doubt the mods will accept it.

  11. What can you expect from the spawn of Lucianne? Wingnut welfare abounds, and these are the pathetic results. You'd hope at least they'd gotten something decent for their money, but - alas, it was not to be.

    Betcha he wasn't holding down a couple of jobs and raising a few kids while he wrote that...

  12. BTW, DB - you're referencing one of my favorite movies. Coo loo-coo-coo Coo coo-coo-coo! Shut up, Mom!

    I could crush your head. Like a nut. But I won't. Because I need you.

  13. Clearly- spawn of the devil. And the rotten apple does not fall far from the diseased tree.
