Jonah Goldberg is a syndicated conservative columnist, political analyst, commentator, podcast host, and author of Bridget’s Bible: Suicide of the West. Jonah shares how his upbringing in a media and politics-heavy household shaped his future, and gave him a realistic perspective about politics and the media that most people don’t have. He and Bridget discuss the dangers a generation of children pose when they’ve been raised to believe that their feelings are the only source of authority they need, why middle-aged managers are terrified of their “woke” 20-something staffers, and how fragility is being taught rather than mental toughness. They cover young conservatives being led to believe that it’s cool to be a**holes, why not allowing people to grow or change their positions is not a good practice, how Americans are much richer than they realize, and why Twitter makes you feel like you’re living in a small town where everyone’s in your business. Check out his podcast The Remnant.

“[W]hat truly makes the French Revolution the first fascist revolution was its effort to turn politics into a religion. (In this the revolutionaries were inspired by Rousseau, whose concept of the general will divinized the people while rendering the person an afterthought.)”
— Jonah Goldberg, in his book Liberal Fascism

Once Upon A Time I used to watch television programmes. Then halfway through the third series of House of Cards, I realised that the real drama was to be found on the news networks. As those same networks and so many journalists had guested on the fictional show, it seemed pointless to watch them pontificate […]

I’m not surprised (and nor should you) that the GOP establishment–you know, the one that supposedly hates Trump–is going to be utterly useless in the effort to stop him: Fearful of counterattacks, rich conservatives and their allies are mostly holding their fire. More

Plus some thoughts on how England’s nationalized socialism (heh) led to its disastrous decline in the 1970s, and how it foreshadowed the Obama era.

National Review’s Jonah Goldberg has spent a lot of time since the 2008 publication of his seminal work on the history of the progressive political movement defending the book’s title, Liberal Fascism. He can stop now.

Adam Weinstein, elite liberal journalist — who, sadly, has been reduced to writing “Rants” for Gawker — is example 13,873 that proves the thesis. And it’s a doozy.
