Wisdom From The Doughy Pantload

Jonah Goldberg:

Personally, I think the voting age should be much, higher, not lower. I think it was a mistake to lower it to 18, to be brutally honest….[I]t is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity than youth. 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. […]

The fact that young people think socialism is better than capitalism. That’s proof of what social scientists call their stupidity and their ignorance. And that’s something that conservatives have to beat out of them. Either literally or figuratively as far as I’m concerned.

What the fuck? This guy couldn’t beat up my grandmother. And he never complained about 18-year-olds when Bush was sending them off to die in Iraq.




  1. What makes Jonah Goldberg think that people who are older than 18 know what’s best for them? Should we take away the right to vote from anyone who maxed out their credit cards, or bought a house they could not afford, or bought Facebook shares at $38?
