Socialism v. Liberalism v. Jonah Goldberg

In what may be the quintessential Jonah Goldberg moment, here he is bemoaning liberals for purveying the stigma around the term “socialism” instead of just using it to describe a set of policies similar to what a lot of mainstream European politicians support. All while talking about a book about Obama and socialism by his NRO colleague called Radical-in-Chief. The comments from his readers further belie his point.

Jonah Goldberg draws no conclusions

Jonah Goldberg at The Corner:

Some fascinating maps of major American cities, highlighting ethnic breakdown.

Meanwhile, Red State cities like San Antonio and Houston are much better integrated.

It’s not an argument, just an observation.

Hey! Jonah Goldberg wants to show you something.

But he’s not saying it means anything.

He’s not even sure why he’s telling you about it.

He just kind of randomly copies and pastes links into his blogging software.

Not that I would dare suggest anything by mentioning this.

Jonah Goldberg defends his word

In light of the violent and racist things we know that Mel Gibson said — coupled with suggestions of actual violence and following his bizarre anti-semitic rants from a few years ago — Jonah Goldberg thinks that the story is unseemly and whoever released the tape is a jerk and that we shouldn’t react differently to him because he might or might not be a conservative. He also offers this evidence for his fair-mindedness:

Hypocrisy sleuths will note that I took a similar position on Alec Baldwin, of all people.

Yes, because Alec Baldwin angrily calling his daughter selfish is totally the same as Mel Gibson telling his girlfriend she’d be raped by a “pack of niggers”. Those are totally equivalent things, so Jonah Goldberg is indeed very astute to treat them the same.

Also, above all, let’s not let this unfortunate incident tarnish the holy word “conservative”.
