Jonah Goldberg: University should show more tolerance for the intolerant

I once asked my late father if he had any experiences with anti-Semitism. There weren't many. Although that was probably in part because of his scoring methodology. The Irish kids who beat up the Jewish kids in his Bronx neighborhood didn't do so because they were anti-Semitic, but because "they had to fight somebody," as my dad put it. Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime.

Jonah Goldberg: TV’s puffed-up Olympic idols live in a fantasy bubble

By now everyone knows about his transgressions. If even only some of the reports are true, Brian Williams is a serial embellisher, a self-aggrandizing fabulist.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama’s comparison of religions' excesses defies logic

On Tuesday, the so-called Islamic State released a slickly produced video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a steel cage. On Wednesday, the United Nations issued a report detailing various "mass executions of boys, as well as reports of beheadings, crucifixions of children and burying children alive" at the hands of the Islamic State.

Jonah Goldberg: Walker is GOP’s scoop of vanilla power

Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor in America, not because it is the best (that would be coffee) but because it is the least objectionable. Put another way, vanilla is the most acceptable to the most people; it's not many people's favorite, but nobody hates it.

Jonah Goldberg: Saudis offer Obama a window of opportunity

Have you heard about the secret conspiracy between the Saudis and the White House? I haven't either, probably because there isn't one. But events are playing out exactly as one would expect if such a conspiracy existed.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama ignores reality, sticks to comfort zone

A week after his State of the Union address, political observers are still trying to figure out what President Barack Obama's game is. That's because rhetorically and substantively, he seems to be in another world.

Jonah Goldberg: There's safety in numbers; Jews are hurt by mob rule

In the wake of the terrorist attack on a kosher market in Paris, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked French Jews to come home.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama just repeats the same old script

It's hard to believe that was only President Barack Obama's sixth State of the Union address. It feels like he's given so many more. Maybe that's because the man seems to be constantly talking. And talking. The talking is the background noise of much of the last decade, auditory wallpaper that seems to line the corridors of everyday life.

Jonah Goldberg: There's no buzz for Romney nostalgia

In 2007, when President Barack Obama announced that he was running for president, he did it in Springfield, Ill., to highlight his supposed connection to Abraham Lincoln. He brought in his biggest fans to cheer him on.

Jonah Goldberg: French jihadists create bad choices with attack on free expression

The vigils in Paris are moving. The hashtag plumes of #JeSuisCharlie ("I am Charlie") are endearing. The expressions of condemnation from Muslim leaders are commendable, as are the assurances of solidarity and support from Western governments.

Goldberg: So who runs this country? Really no one

There's an old joke in the newspaper business, now immortal on the Internet:

Goldberg: GOP candidates should show, not just tell

Hey, Jeb, Ted, Rand, Marco, Bobby, Chris and the dozen or more others I'm forgetting, here's something to write on your bathroom mirror in 2015 and beyond: The "P" in POTUS stands for "President," not "Pundit."

Jonah Goldberg: Bush stumbling so far on his ‘joyful’ run

By now everyone has had their say about Jeb Bush's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. The consensus is that Bush misheard Megyn Kelly's "knowing what we know now" question about the Iraq war. I'm not convinced.

Jonah Goldberg: Democrats get their own taste of Obama’s arrogance

These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case).

Jonah Goldberg: Identity politics is always tied to one's views

Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?"
