It’s funny to see LGF which claims to support liberty for females, actually back the oppression of women. The hijab is a symbol of the oppression of women in Islam. Rather than condemn it, the hijab is celebrated at LGF.
Islam’s oppression of women is cool over at LGF!
Listen up, Whitey. We’re Comin’ Ta Gitcha.
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is a hive of racism. Don’t let anybody fool you.
There he goes again, fighting a dead man.
Andrew Breitbart enhanced Charles Johnson’s blogging career by introducing him to the players who in turn promoted Little Green Footballs and escorted Johnson into the Big Tent with fanfare. Instead of walking away with dignity, Charles chose the path of the pissant. Not only did he shun his former mentors, he turned on them, created and promoted lies, reposted invented unsubstantiated claims, and astroturfed his benefactors. Then, like a true coward, he still plays the victim when others call him on his own hypocrisy.
On 13 September 2016, Charles tried once again to erase his own history of astroturfing, but let’s roll back the clock to 18 September 2009.
Seven years ago today The Flying Monkeys of Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs began an astroturf campaign against HotAir. With no evidence to back up Johnson’s accusation that HotAir was a racist website, LGF operative Killgore Trout paid them a visit while the moderators were asleep and provided the “evidence” himself by posting offensive racial comments and daring the moderators to delete them… beginning at 12:34AM and running to 2:01AM. You can read the full diatribe here, but here’s a snippet:
Killgore’s Midnight Run set a precedent for Little Green Footballs that was recognized throughout the political blogosphere, and the running joke was that if racist comments showed up on someone’s website it was due to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs.
Charles Johnson continuously accused Breitbart and others of not policing comments on their websites. Little Green Footballs typically garnered a couple of hundred comments, and Charles employed volunteer “Monitor Lizards” to do it for him. Breitbart’s “Big Journalism” had well over ten times the number of comments per post than Little Green Footballs, so it was impractical to expend the effort to review and/or edit all of them.
And Johnson’s astroturfing didn’t stop there.
Johnson holds the 2 of Clubs and four Post-It Notes, then claims he has 5 of a kind. The first liar never has a chance, Charles.
Vapid. Inane. Pointless. Echo Chamber. Uniform. Ignorant. Predictable. Empty. Brain dead. Clogged with spam ads and pop-ups. Little Green Footballs still loads like a snail pulling a plow through parched earth, with a pantload leading it.
Every page is an idiotic screed by Thanos, and every post is an echo of whatever Charles found at Media Matters. There’s no discussion in the comments, just a lot of butt-patting self-congratulations between the lizards for staying in the LGF Choir and singing praises to Charles of Three Chins.
Little Green Footballs has become a caricature of its own self, and that makes mocking satire even more difficult. Hell, I can’t even think of an appropriate image to post for this brand new thread, so we’ll just let it go for now, but I have no worries for new material. Any day now Charles will step in the same pooch porch pile once again.
Al-Qaeda’s attacks on 9/11 happened 15 years ago. During that time span Charles went from being at the forefront of anti Jihad to being a social justice warrior. He no longer focuses on Jihadists who thankfully are killing themselves in Syria, but instead rants about Nazis.

This is really fucking bad, folks. https://t.co/pdmV2XpZCy

I do find the Alt Right disgusting and they deserve all the scorn in the world, but I find the various Islamic groups bad as well. 15 years after 9/11, Charles has forgotten who attacked us.
The following are Charles Johnson’s own unedited comments as they appeared on Little Green Footballs, 11 September 2001.

The creatures who did this were not human. Humanity is something you choose; when these things chose their course, plotted their evil, and carried it out, they relinquished the privilege of being considered human.
Even more sickening are the scenes of celebration coming out of Palestine and other Islamic states. Such hate. Such joyous embracing of evil. It’s just soul-wrenching.

Jeffrey just put up a note. I haven’t been able to connect to the Morning News, or to Metafilter or wholelottanothing.

So what exactly fills you with “disrespect?” The idea that we know who the enemy is? Do you disagree?
Or are you simply expressing the knee-jerk, unthinking European criticism of anything American that I’ve seen so many times? That’s what I think, and frankly, it’s very boring, and very ignorant. And at a time like this, very inappropriate.
If you have something thoughtful to contribute I welcome it. But if you continue to equate the Israelis with the Nazis, you may get banned. Think before you write.

And isn’t this the central dilemma of trying to deal with monsters like these—that they feel no similar hesitation about involving innocents? And in fact, that they deliberately target innocents?
00001220 01088 9 charles Tue, Sep 11, 2001 5:18:42pm
This is the horrifying reality that Israel has been dealing with; when the monsters create the rules, how can you avoid taking on some of their attributes in the battle?
This is odd because Charles used to rail about pop-ups ads, like this:
Yeah, that’s a genuine screencap, but I’m not sure just what to make of it. Maybe if Charles Johnson posted some original content, even occasionally, he could eliminate the begging buffer and get more traffic. Maybe he could put his blog on the market and find someone to run it into the ground for him.
[Psst… Hey Gus. It’s me, Charles. Have I got a deal for you…]
Yes, it’s a new breakthrough for the master of cut-n-paste, plagiarism and self-promotion of unoriginal thought at Little Green Footballs.
The classic I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER Meme Generator has been around for years, if not decades, so what compels Charles Johnson to re-invent and coopt what already exists? Even without the generator, it’s pretty easy to create a template, paste a stupid caption on it and save it as a .jpg, like this:
Or one can go to the Demotivational Poster Generator site and do something like this:
So congratulations, Charles. Once again you’ve invented nothing original and ripped off someone else’s creation. Now go figure out how to generate a pie chart and eat it.
With the addition of that meme generator knockoff, I’ll bet people are falling over themselves and knocking down your door to purchase a subscription version of your blog platform now, yah? 😀
