Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Cultures grow on the vine of tradition.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “I think there needs to be a meeting to set an agenda for more meetings about meetings.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The white male is the Jew of liberal fascism.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Liberals are Nazis, and Nazis are liberals. And if you don’t agree with me, you’re a Nazi too.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “A rising economic tide is bad for people who live off of the poverty of others.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “I’ve just returned from my daughter’s Halloween parade at grade school. She was supergirl – and she was perfect. And, even better, she still considers boys to be made of kryptonite.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Our country, if you read the ‘Federalist Papers,’ is about disagreement. It’s about pitting faction against faction, divided government, checks and balances. The hero in American political tradition is the man who stands up to the mob – not the mob itself.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The government cannot love you, and any politics that works on a different assumption is destined for no good.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “I like vengeance as much as the next guy, if the next guy likes vengeance a whole lot...”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “In his unintentionally chilling 1890 essay, Leaders of Men, Wilson explained that the “true leader” uses the masses like “tools.” He must not traffic in subtleties and nuance, as literary men do. Rather, he must speak to stir their passions, not their intellects. In short, he must be a skillful demagogue.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “We drown in information but we starve for knowledge.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “You know those Navy SEALs, they weren’t Democrats and Republicans. They were just doing what was best for America. Wouldn’t that be a great country if all of you Americans were just like that? You followed orders, you marched in step and you followed my agenda.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Pragmatism is the disguise progressive and other ideologues do when they want to demonize competing ideologies.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “When I see hipsters wearing Mao hats or Lenin T-shirts, I’m grateful. It’s like truth-in-labeling. For now I know you are: Woefully ignorant, morally stunted, purposively asinine, or all three.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “But this is the kind of ass-clownery that stems from the fact that all philosophy looks weird when you don’t have one.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “As we all know, the most effective lies are the ones sprinkled with the most actual truths.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Facts are mere speed bumps on the road to lefty moral outrage.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Simply because the nanny-state wants to hug you doesn’t mean it’s not tyrannical if you don’t want to be hugged.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The past shows unvaryingly that when a people’s freedom disappears, it goes not with a bang, but in silence amid the comfort of being cared for. That is the dire peril in the present trend toward statism. If freedom is not found accompanied by a willingness to resist, and to reject favors, rather than to give up what is intangible but precarious, it will not long be found at all. – Richard Weaver, 1962 I.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “We’re all born idiots, and we only get over that condition as we get less young.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Joe Biden says the Wall Street crisis is the result of George W. Bush’s tax cuts, which makes as much sense as blaming the rising price of fairy dust. But as a wise man once asked, Who gives a rat’s patoot what Joe Biden thinks?”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “America’s political system used to be about the pursuit of happiness. Now More and more of us want to stop chasing it and have it delivered.”

Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Are you a producer or a looter? If diversity were always and everywhere good we would be clamoring for more midgets in the NBA.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “In crude Marxist terms, liberals have a theory of infallible government that is constantly at war with the reality of life.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Capitalism is the greatest system ever created for alleviating general human misery, and yet it breeds ingratitude.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The truth is France has been the chief Western advocate of normalizing relations with Iraq – one of its largest trading partners – for years, partly because France holds billions in IOUs from Iraq that wouldn’t be redeemable by a new regime.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “There’s nothing within science per se that says medical researchers must not experiment on human subjects; it is the imposition of ethical dogma that constrains the scientist.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Our fear of hypocrisy is forcing us to live in a world where gluttons are fine, so long as they champion gluttony.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The Founders understood that democracy was important, but if you didn’t filter it through a republican system you’d be just as likely to end up with a tyranny of the majority as you would with a healthy society. Don’t worry, I won’t quote the Federalist Papers, but trust me, it’s in there.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The more you socialize the costs of personal liberty, the more license you give others to regulate it.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Progressivism, liberalism, or whatever you want to call it has become an ideology of power. So long as liberals hold it, principles don’t matter.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Today’s unions are less Mobbed-up than those of yesteryear to be sure, but they’re hardly above tactics that would be considered intimidating and coercive.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Science is wonderful at explaining what science is wonderful at explaining, but beyond that it tends to look for its car keys where the light is good.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Keep Hope alive, particularly if Hope is the name of a very cute puppy and not some ill-defined abstraction that is in fact code for big government.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “The Mars Polar Lander cost the average American the price of half a cheeseburger. A human lander would cost the average American more – perhaps even ten cheeseburgers! So be it. That is no great sacrifice.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “When activists say we need to move past the partisan divide, what they mean is: Shut up and get with my program. Have you ever heard anyone say, “We need to get past all of this partisan squabbling and name-calling. That’s why I’m going to abandon all my objections and agree with you”?”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Both Lincoln and King were appealing to the story – the best story – we tell about ourselves. That our story begins with Americans falling short of the ideals embedded in the Founding is not an indictment of the ideals; it is testament to the nobility of America’s story arc.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Dissent is morally neutral. You can correctly call yourself a dissident because you like to kick puppies, but at the end of the day, you’re just a jerk who likes to kick puppies.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “And in the minds of progressives you are free to live anyway you want so long as it’s progressive.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “You can see why the Marxist left would resist the idea that Hitler was a revolutionary. Because if he was, then either Hitler was a force for good, or revolutions can be bad.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “That internal beast is human nature. It cannot be killed; it can only be tamed. And even then, constant vigilance is required.”
Jonah Goldberg Quote: “Yes, I know liberals are more empirical because Jonathan Chait says they are, but my empirical studies of liberal empiricism keep spitting out contradictory findings.”
