Jonah Goldberg believes that conservatives need to "beat" the socialism out of the youth who believe that socialism is preferable to capitalism.
"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 it's something that conservatives have to work harder to beat out of them, either literally or figuratively as far as I'm concerned."

While Goldberg claims he "wasn’t serious about wanting to literally beat the socialism out of young kids today," he still refuses to apologize for his inflammatory so-called humor.
Bullying and advocating violence against people who disagree with you is not brave. Stepping into the ring for a fair fight would be.
This is in no way intended as a threat, instead this is a challenge to participate in a regulated boxing match with rules agreeable to both parties, a referee, trainers and any safety gear.
So a challenge is now on the table. Tell tough guy Jonah to step into the ring with Jamie Kilstein - a 145-pound progressive vegan standup comic who doesn't take kindly to bullies. We'll put it on the Internet and start a kickstarter to raise thousands of dollars in prize money that the winner can allocate to their favorite charity.
What do you say, Jonah?
