George Jonas dead at 80…

George Jonas, who has died aged 80, was a journalist, novelist and poet who fled the brutal Soviet suppression of the 1956 Hungarian revolution for a new life in the West, where he became one of Canada’s best loved and most controversial opinion makers on issues from criminal law, war and politics to Islamism and multiculturalism.

The cause was not specified; he had been ill for the past several years with Parkinsonism.


 

We lost a great one.

I have long been a fan. Rest in peace.

    I enjoyed reading George Jonas’ columns.
    I wish more people knew first hand what communism is like.
    And I wish more people listened.

    I will miss George Jonas’s magic with the English language. As well as a superb wordsmith he had a brilliant grasp of the world’s convoluted condition and the ability to share this with us. God bless, and he will be missed.

    Sad news.
    George Jonas was one of those who very carefully tended the Flame of Freedom.

    I loved reading Jonas. Grew up on a steady diet of him in the old Toronto Sun days.

    George Jonas was a brilliant thinker and journalist. Those two rarely go together at all. George was one of a kind and irreplaceable. R.I.P.

    He was one of the few reasons that I kept my National Post subscription as long as I did.

    He explained to that shit Trudeau that things aren’t wrong because they’re illegal but illegal because they are WRONG.
    Pierre never really understood the distinction therein….the arrogant Marxist shit molder of worlds.

    Look at his legacy….everything he touched he fucked up…..
