Jonah Goldberg, You're So Funny

The funniest thing that ever came out of your mouth remains me, Jonah.



Oh I get it, Volksgeist, Spirit of the Folk/Race! So you're calling your twitter enemies... drum roll... Nazis!

"I'm so surprised Jonah Goldberg is now freely using the talking points and slogans of the Squad!" said... no one. Not a one. No one said this. No a single soul thought anything remotely close to this.

As a great man (me) said, the problem with NeverTrump socialism is that eventually you run out of Pierre Omidyar's money.





By the way, let me take issue with this other poseur cuck who fell to pieces over the cuck elegy poem.

Tough choice faces the Heterodox Academy
by Grant Addison

...

Founded in 2015 by Georgetown law professor Nick Rosenkranz, Emory University sociologist Chris Martin, and New York University social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, Heterodox Academy is a nonpartisan collection of more than 3,300 professors, administrators, and graduate students, who want to improve higher education from within.

Their raison d'etre is an important one.

Um, the correct word is "mission." Their mission is an important one. A common English word which just happens to be the correct word.

Hint: If it says it in the Mission Statement, that might be a clue that we're talking about its mission, not it's "raison d'etre."

"Raison d'etre" (circonflex omitted because of formatting problems) is the wrong word.

It's a matter of usage -- as Twain said, the difference between the right word and the not-right word is the difference between the lightning and the lightning bug.

You could say "the raison d'etre of Ford Motors is to sell cars and make a profit at doing so," but that would be fucking stupid, wouldn't it?

Raison d'etre is not used to explain what something's obvious, part-of-the-very-corporate-charter mission is.

It's used to say that something, thought it might not be obvious and might not be a common or literal Reason for Being, is, in a metaphyiscal or philosophical sense, something's reason for living.


You could say "His raison d'etre is promoting the arts," if it's a private passion, and not what it says right on his office door. If it says "Vice President for Promotion of the Arts," that's not his raison d'etre.

It is merely his job.

Now, you could say it's his life's work or his life's mission, if it is that. If he was fighting for the promotion for the arts before he had the job, you could say, "Even before landing the job, advocating for the arts was his raison d'etre."

But you can't just say that someone's designated function is their raison d'etre.

A tuna can's raison d'etre is not to hold tuna. If it says it right on the tin, that's not a raison d'etre, that's just what it does.

This annoys me anyway because, okay, so, yeah, I speak French. And a lot of these fucking cuck idiots think that's it's impressive to use Basic Bitch French that is so basic it's not even French, it's English (raison d'etre is an English term, now), and then they use it incorrectly on top of that.

But I guess the Idiots pretending to be intellectuals who read their twitter feeds are impressed by this.

It's a bit like Jonah using a very easily translated bit of German.

It's not impressive. It's stupid, it's Basic Bitch, it's an easy affectation of being intellectual because the user has no way to do the hard work of being a real intellectual.

And it's poseur. It's frimeur.

Pardon my French.


By the way, earlier this week, Jonah Goldberg, get very much this!, dropped a Simspons reference from 1999 to show Today's Youth how he's "with it" and "down."

It just never gets old. Like GAS STATION SUSHI.

Jonah's jokes, like his fat, sweaty face, age like salad.

13 I'm confused. I suppose it's my ageing eyes and ears. But is it "The Squad" or "The Squid"? Seems the 2nd makes more sense.

Also, if I didn't know about Goldberg's ability to be a butthead, I'd be guessing Ace is secretly having stupid shit passed to him, as Ace's own, thus leading Jonah to print it as his. But I know he's quit capable of making an ass of himself, when he's sober enough.

The Never Trumpers have gone completely off the rails. I tuned into former congressman Joe Walsh's radio show earlier in the week and he was agreeing with a caller that Trump supporters are racists and that's why Trump sends out his racist tweets to appeal to all us racists. Walsh is such a super duper conservative and Trump supporters are selling out conservatism according to that assclown.

Posted by: El Kabong at July 17, 2019 04:39 PM (datdl)

68 I started running across "cuck" in comment sections about 2014-2015 on sites like Taki's. The usage was always and exclusively a reference to mixed-race people. The raison d'etre for using the phrase was to refer to white women who have children with non-white men. They thus allow the white race to "cucked."

It's a reference seemingly to cuckold porn, which is, apparently, almost always full of vignettes of Men of Color having sex with white women while their husbands watch.

It's taken on a whole other meaning, sure, but it's always struck me as disgusting and utterly creepy that it caught on. I was pretty disappointed Ace decided to run with this insult like he did.

The GOP has just deflated like a used condom. It just depends on which side of the sheath you're on when it's all done, eh?

And it was specifically for his insistence to equivocate in every anti liberal article he wrote. He always had to include some disclaimer that ' Granted, Conservatives do this too....' and list some obscure , rarer than rare example that may or may not be on point.

He's an OG cuck.

96 >>> started running across "cuck" in comment sections about 2014-2015 on sites like Taki's. The usage was always and exclusively a reference to mixed-race people. The raison d'etre for using the phrase was to refer to white women who have children with non-white men. They thus allow the white race to "cucked."

Well I never read Taki, racist.

>>>It's a reference seemingly to cuckold porn, which is, apparently, almost always full of vignettes of Men of Color having sex with white women while their husbands watch.

I'll defer to your expertise in this particular style of pornography, but when I have happened by it, it's a complete mix of whatever race of dude.

The women do seem to be white. But I think that's more of this being a weak white guy thing.

I don't get that one either. I guess it has some tiny nuance of meaning (nuance is a french word meaning "shade," or even "nuance") that is part of its meaning, but not too much.

there's a term "joie de laide," meaning "joy of (the) ugly," which is a term in art and film meaning seeing the beauty in ugliness. I guess that would be an acceptable term to use because it has an established meaning in art and film across languages.

178 or "PA system," actually. (It was a guy speaking over the PA at the funeral, if I remember right.)

S'en vouloir -- that's a verb I picked up. It means "to be angry at, have an issue with." That meaning is completely idiomatic and cannot be guessed from the basic vocabulary (reflexive se, the nonspecific object pronoun "en," and the verb for "to want.")

Another one he used a lot was something for "cheated on" -- something like, can't remember now, se [word for deceive or trick].

The Insult of the thing - being made to look like Chumps in front of all their leftist pseudo-intellectual pals.

A nice little piece of added justice I just noticed - the Gibson's attorney's billed a huge amount of hours, over 14,000 I think at $290 per hour. Objectively, that could look unreasonable BUT... in the hearing, the attorney's pointed out that Oberlin's defense team had already billed for more hours than that. (15,000, iirc) It sure looks to me like the Oberlin attorney's massively overbilled their client, especially for the results they received, BUT the Judge ruled that Oberlin didn't have the right to claim that the Gibson's legal costs were unreasonable, since they had already accepted a greater amount on their part as being reasonable.

In practical terms, since Oberlin had already allowed their SJW legal pals to massively overbill them on the case, the Gibson's legal team gets to overbill them by just as much. Sweet!!! (And the Gibson's don't have to pay any of it!)

256 >>>244 Okay, is it "not my forte" = not my fortay or not my fort or something else?

in french it's "fort."

In English... most people say fortAY, which is wrong if you're french, but you're not, you're english.

It may have been confused with the Italian "forte," which is pronounced fortAY, but doesn't mean exactly the same thing.

(It does have to do with strength though -- it's a musical command meaning "Play strongly, hard."

3) Allow the use of unreliable forms of electric generation, like wind and solar. Give special emphasis to solar, because it's fun to lose a major chunk of your electrical generation every time the sun sets.

4) Profit!

I often make it a point to purposefully mispronounce French words simply because I'm an American and I don't care what the French think of me.

I also know that actual no-kidding aristocrats do this. They don't try to show off with borrowed words and foreign terms, they just say what they want, how they want.

Goldberg and Co. fancy themselves to be an "aristocracy of merit," but they're really stuck in an Upper Middle Class mindset wracked with status anxiety.

Actual aristocrats have no status anxiety because they were to the manor born. Like Bill Buckley.

Goldberg is a child of privilege, but not an aristocrat. He tries to put on airs but knows in his heart he's just a schlub with a connected mom who got him easy work.

342 Probably from natural gas, minus all the transmission losses of course.

Can't build a new natural gas plant in California, and they are in the process of shutting down most of the old natural gas plants.

What California is doing is increasingly relying on other states to supply reliable generation. Unfortunately, that requires importing power over long transmission lines, which occasionally fail, frequently at the worst possible time.

346 Gas is more efficient for heating. There are no conversion losses from gas to heat. Electricity must be produced by other means, there are transmission losses and conversion losses.

Electricity is easier to take out, in face colander times.

When I lived in a really old house once, there was a time when the electricity went out for 3 days in the middle of the winter. But it didn't bother me much at all, since I had a gas stove, a gas water heater, and gas space heaters. (I had a central system that needed electricity and that was down, but I could plug in the space heaters and keep the place warm)

The real mistake is not using "stash" or "hoard" to begin with. When faced with a choice of English vs French, always use the English.

nope. there are two words:

cache, meaning a secret hiding place for weapons or drugs or money, is "cash."

"cachet" means a "mark of prestige" and is pronounced "cash-ay."

They are related. The cachet formally meant the stamped sealing wax that seals a formal letter from like an aristocrat or high magistrate, and it's come to mean "sign of prestige."

But the cachet term is certainly somehow related to the idea of hiding something, or shielding it from view.

Of course, the analogy that the CON-servative "thought leaders" are impotent weaklings allowing themselves to be cuckolded by the Democrats seems to lost on you. The fact that the Republic-cucks don't like to be called "cucks" is because the insult cuts them to the quick because it is true.

Funny that you mention "poutine".

Vladimir Putin´s last name, pronounced in French, sounds exactly as the word "putain" (whore).

When Putin became known in the international scene in the early 80s, the French had to re-invent, so to speak, his last name to avoid insulting him. For this reason, his last name is pronounced and published in French as Poutine.
