News Roundup for 8/2/11

Crying child
Jonah Goldberg reacts to news that hippie-commie Nazi Marxist America-hating terrorist-sympathizers are calling conservatives names

-Headline of the Day-
"To Hell with You People."

Jonah Goldberg had a "leave Britney alone!" moment today, when he'd had just about enough of everyone comparing Tea Party Republicans to terrorists. Just because a bunch of ideological zealots took the American economy hostage and threatened to blow it up if their demands weren't met, people keep making that comparison. It's just so unfair!

You know what's fun here? Goldberg is the author of Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning, which -- as you might imagine from the title -- says some not very nice (or even true) things about the left.

One reviewer said that Liberal Fascism was "a howl of rage disguised as intellectual history" that could be boiled down to one simple argument: "I know you are, but what am I?" And what can you expect of a book that argues that Hitler's vegetarianism is proof that all hippies are Nazis?

So, yeah Jonah, you go ahead and whine about how people are being so mean to conservatives. You tell everyone in the media to go to hell. Then you go cry yourself to sleep, tucked under the covers of your own shameless hypocrisy. (National Review)

-And now the good news-
It's not like it's all bad news.
