Military Recruiting Opportunity: Jonah Goldberg in Amherst, Massachusetts

National Review's Jonah Goldberg appears at UMass Amherst Wednesday, December 12, 7:30 p.m., in the Student Union Ballroom, as a guest of the UMass [College] Republicans.

Back in 2005, Jonah Goldberg Answered the Question. Why don't you ask him about Henry Hager who wants the Noblesse without the Oblige?

Jonah Goldberg is a coward. He has no compunctions of allowing other men to fight and lose their limbs, lives and souls in a far away land for nebulous national interests.

His "arguments" for the neccesity of war should be afforded as much weight as the amount of risk he is personally willing to invest. ZERO.

Fortunately, today the flow of information can not be rigidly controlled by the ChickenHawk WarMongers. Which is why troops in country afford him, and those who call for continued occupation and war, the respect they afford their post KBR port-a-shitter visits.

Why would we ask Jonah Goldberg? He's not Henry Hager's agent or something, he doesn't speak for him.

The president of the UMass CRs is in the Navy according to his facebook profile.

I like how the title of the lecture is "Give War a Chance". That's really cute.

If Jonah would have said, "I think the war is wrong", I would support his not serving.

If Jonah had a moral or religious reason not to serve, I would support his not serving.

If Jonah made no comment about the war, I would support his not serving.

However, Jonah has been at the forefront of supporting the war, and he is not willing to serve himself.

That makes Jonah Goldberg is the worst kind of coward.

The question that ought to be asked of Jonah Goldberg is whether Goldberg thinks that Henry Hager, for example, has an obligation to America at least to consider volunteering for military service, thereby setting a good example for the rest of us.

We're not suggesting that Goldberg necessarily knows Henry Hager or can otherwise speak for him. Henry Hager has Media Lizzy to do that.
