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.
