On The Anniversary Of Killgore’s Midnight Run
Four years ago today, Little Green Footballs operative Killgore Trout began posting racist comments at Hot Air in order to discredit and dismiss Ed Morrissey, Allah Pundit and other contributors and commenters as right-wing racists. Posting from the west coast, Killgore Trout decided to spew his garbage in the early morning hours of 18 September 2009 while the blog owners were asleep, in order to PROVE that a right-wing blog that Charles Johnson didn’t approve of promoted racism.
This is the Liberal Mind in action. Little Green Footballs’ Killgore Trout had to lie to promote a fallacy.
Not a single commenter on that Hot Air thread echoed Killgore’s racism (in fact they dismissed it immediately) yet Charles Johnson supported his loyal minion with the argument “Yes, he was wrong to pull a Moby, but he was right to do so.” Johnson was embarrassed enough that he had to write a script to defend himself and attack Patterico on 15 April 2012, over three years later.
There’s also a little known tenet called the 9th Commandment that applies to all Judeo-Christian religions. Charles Johnson and Killgore Trout both ignore that one even though it’s embedded in US Law. It’s something along the lines of “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.”
