Charles Johnson started a GoFundMe account on 6 May 2015 with a goal of $20,000. Between 6 May 2015 and 1 August 2017 he’s collected $7,044.00, 35.2% percent of his goal.
Nobody’s donating much, so let’s break it down for fun.
[From The Diary of Daedalus’ Ain’t Seen The Light Of Day Department, the following untitled draft by Heracles, 19 July 2010, was a cut and paste of an LGF post in text only, with no additional commentary. The text has been replaced with a screencap of Charles Johnson’s original post of the same date with embedded links and my commentary below. – Briareus]
Wow. Not only did Johnson label/libel Sheriff Paul Babeu as a racist, he attempted (and failed) to brand Sen. John McCain one as well just for talking with him. Here’s Johnson’s proof – A post from Media Matters that sources the Southern Poverty Law Center [cached]:
Here’s the link to the YouTube video featuring both Sheriff Babeu and Senator McCain:
Funny how some things from years ago are just as relevant today, unlike Charles Johnson. (BTW, the author of that MM piece, Eric Hananoki, was a staffer for The [defunct] Al Franken Show. Go figger).
Two years later Johnson was still at it, and Daedalus posted about it here.
Charles, you’re a mess.
I don’t know why I find this funny, perhaps because it’s another one of Charles Johnson’s inane cut-n-paste jobs of articles and documents that he didn’t bother reading or couldn’t comprehend. Maybe we should do it Mark Levin style:
“CUT ONE. GO.”
“OKAY STOP. Holy crap. Who thought one of the biggest energy plants in the world, Plant Scherer, might produce carbon dioxide, the stuff that plants breathe? It’s coal-fired. Cheap energy. SO WHAT? They have scrubbers, and the clouds you see coming out of the reactors are steam. Water vapor. CO2 doesn’t even come close to doing the climate change dance that water vapor does, and the oceans are pros at it. The oceans beat out the jungles (I mean the rain forests) for methane generation, and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it.
“Guess where the coal comes from to run Plant Scherer? Wyoming! Why it’s not coming from Appalachia I don’t know. Has to do with economics. Okay, Go on…”
I can’t do Levin like Levin, but here’s what’s got Charles and others all squeevy. A draft of an unfinished report was leaked today entitled
and every blogger (including Charles Foster Johnson) who linked to it, apparently read it, checked out the the footnotes and quoted sources, and vetted it in under 10 hours. ALL 549 PAGES OF IT.
Nazi Germany named this process PapierKrieg.
P.S. Here are the direct links that Charles proffered:
Lisa Friedman is a one-note nutcase with mental myopia and a small weight problem.
Rip it up, me bloogs.
So Charles, what exactly is racist about limiting immigration to those who have skills, talent and finances to contribute to the economic prosperity of the United States of America?
Here’s what Charles and his grips / handlers are all bothered about:
They’re bothered about it because it is the truth.
For 45 years (1920-1965) open immigration policy was shut down to allow for assimilation of a generation of previous immigrants, and the policy was supported by progressives, liberals, conservatives, labor unions and everyone in between because it was sound fiscal policy.
When unskilled foreign workers, accepted en-masse, flood the workforce (and compete for low-skill jobs with other recent immigrants) they deprive young U.S. men and women from important entry-level jobs. It hurts young blacks the most, just like almost every other Democrat Party policy since its founding in 1830. (Any source that claims the Democrat Party came out of the 1700s is a lying historical revisionist.)
Charles, we’d love to hear you ‘splain your lack of education on American History, but we know you’d just embarrass yourself. What did you wash, mow, trim, clean or wipe when you were 16 years old?

Not sure how we missed this gem from someone named “Jummy” but he posted an excellent analysis of Charles Johnson’s persona and actions (post Oslo Massacre) on a blog forum 30 July 2011. Here it is in its unedited entirety. -Briareus

it may be that geller and spenser and fjordman and the rest are corrosive people trading on bigotry. there are many people who knew that at first glance. perhaps the ability to see these people for who they are at first sight is a better benchmark for clearsightedness than the ability to hate them in suspiciously lugubrious terms only after plucking them from obscurity, establishing their blogging careers, and supporting them for nearly a decade.
it’s not absolutely clear that johnson “came to his senses”. rather, it appears more likely that johnson was offended that geller and spenser had challenged his authority. there was no disagreement on any of the themes which would later comprise breivik’s manifesto, only on who geller and spenser should disinvite to the brussels conference vlamms belang was to participate in.
Gus has a thang going on and somehow he’s Tweeted to thousands, follows thousands, and thousands follow him since he joined Twitter in January 2011. Let’s break this down.
Let’s assume Gus joined Twitter on 31 January 2011. Between that date and 17 July 2017, Gus posted 449,000 Tweets according to his own Twitter Account. That’s about 2,490 days according to this calculator.
Now let’s run the math. 450k Tweets / 2,490 days = 180 Tweets per Day. Assuming a 4 hour Twitterday, that works out to an astounding rate of approximately 45 Tweets per hour average, and it includes the two times he claimed to have quit Twitter.
If Gus is indeed following 3,450 as his Twitterfeed claims, that means he’s reading over 860 Tweets Per Hour. Dude’s amazing.
It’s no secret that Gus is unemployed. He turned down three legitimate offers, and this blog offered to help him out with his medical expenses via a PayPal account. He declined all assistance and chose to gripe instead. So what are those little retweeted things on the lower left of his Twitter homepage? I dunno, Babs, but I do know this. Gus seems to take pride in it.
Gusano, you’re almost as entertaining as Charles Johnson.
