Famous Historian and Almost Recipient Of Possible Consideration For An Award He Could Hang On His Mom’s Refrigerator Jonah Goldberg is just not “down with the hip cats” voting in elections possibly because they have never had “a very serious, thoughtful, argument that has never been made in such detail or with such care”, and because, when they’re not being young dumb and full of cum, they spend all their time Skrillexing. Which is a thing:
Appearing in a video published online on Thursday, Jonah Goldberg, editor-at-large for the neoconservative National Review Online website, explains that he believes letting 18-year-old Americans vote is a big mistake that should be taken back.
Advocating that conservatives should “literally” beat young people into political submission, Goldberg said that young voters are “so frickin’ stupid about so many things,” which is why, in his view, the system must change.
“It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth,” Goldberg said. “We’re all born idiots, and we only get over that condition as we get less young. And yet there’s this thing in this culture where, ‘Oh, young people are for it so it must be special.’ No, the reason young people are for it because they don’t know better. That’s why we call them young people.”
You should listen to him because he’s a
doctor idiot and he knows whereof he speaks….
