Chuck smears again

Today long time poster ryannon was banned from LGF.  Ryannon then came over to the Diary of Daedalus top discuss their banning. No nasty comments were made about Charles “Icarus” Johnson.

Chuck publicly claims he received an email that ryannon was talking bad about him.

Chuck is once again lying. He never received an email about ryannon’s comments on DOD. The Jazz man saw them himself since he reads this blog. Also, ryannon never said anything nasty so he lied in that regard again.

Charles “Icarus” Johnson smears another person. This is why this blog exists, to expose an intellectually dishonest smear merchant.

Deal with it Chuck.

Update: Chuck smeared ryannon even more.

Chuck thinks any discussion about him is talking trash. He really thinks he’s beyond criticism.

Chuck your just a Jazz guitarist, not some shaman.

    I rate this as 4 pairs of pants on fire.

  2. Whatever says:

    Depends on what “is’ is, or something like that.

  3. Charles wants a new gig says:

    “Hate” in Charrulz’s lexicon means “lack of adoring praise for meeeeeee!”

    He’s a Thin-Lipped Moral Paragon™, you see, and those who fail to forbid what he forbids are haram.

  4. Mandingo Warrior says:

    You just keep it classy there, CJ.

  5. Beeduwine says:

    Could you get blogads for this site? It would possibly generate more dough than Charlie’s cookiemaker, if he keeps on riding this decline. Mocking gone pro! I can’t think of a better burn.

  6. ryannon says:

    Having first-hand knowledge of this ‘ryannon’ character, I have to compliment you on the veracity of your observation. He’s not a ‘hater’ and has nothing but a feeling of genuine pity for Charles. He does have a bit of a potty-mouth at times, but in general, he’s well-bred enough to lower the lid and flush after using. Charles’ ‘hate comments’ routine is his stock-in-trade for Lizards who jump ship. You could be a fucking saint and still end up tagged as a hater by him. As an armchair psychologist, I’d venture that he’s dealing with an overflow of various types of hatred himself. His unforgivable error is to project it out on those who threaten his self-image by leaving the blog-bubble of protection he’s created for himself and his acolytes. It’s a sad situation over there, and getting sadder by the day as people begin to understand that he’s neither playing with a full deck nor very honestly. Not a happy ending to this story, I’d venture.

  7. D says:

    “This is why this blog exists, to expose an intellectually dishonest smear merchant.”

    The dude is a dipshit. Can we say that too? Try and add it in there every time you get a chance. For instance, “This is why this blog exists, to expose an intellectually dishonest, dipshit, smear merchant.” Sounds a lot better doesn’t it?

    • Mandingo Warrior says:

      Actually I think “burned out Jazz guitarist whose political savvy came from the intellect of his readers” has a nice ring to it. As CJ would see it, nothing pleases the coliseum like a good banning. Doesn’t really matter who it is, or what the substance of the claim was.

    • jordanduram says:

      Any epithet within reason is allowed. As long as the gods guide you. 🙂

    Oh no, a strongly-worded post from Charles. This changes everything.

    I haven’t ever posted here before. Charles banned me for no reason at all. I hadn’t posted for some time, but logged in for the first time in some months to see the seekrit thread and blam, the next time I logged in my account was blocked. So was my husbands, and he hadn’t posted for a looooong time. I think Charles has become so paranoid he doesn’t know who is what.

    Also, Charles is now talking about ryannon melting down etc. That is total BS. He was banned because of a sarcastic post, and Charles even gave that as a reason for the ban. The dude couldn’t recognize sarcasm if you put it up with flashing LEDs. Now he is lying and trying to make something else altogether the reason. There was a time I respected Charles. He has spiraled into the muck on his own ego and paranoia. Too bad, he had promise at one time. Couldn’t keep the mask in place, could he?

    • Beeduwine says:

      Charles used the super-seekrit thread to flush out socks. You were probably tossed out with the dirty water. Just write him an e-mail where you tell him he’s got the slickest blog with the slickest interface which is the premium site for political discourse on the www-dot-internet-dot-com, and that you hate Pam Geller, and you will be alright.

    • Bagua says:

      Well said Macha, good to hear from you!

      • Carolina Girl as Arachne says:

        Charles uses the sooper seekrit thread for sock puppet hunting. He has that fantabulus ever-wonderful correlator tool that catches us. Except that we don’t go to the sooper seekrit thread for that reason.

        Idiot is too kind a word. Really it is.

    • snowcrash says:

      Macha, haven’t met you before, howdy. Plenty of folks have been blocked for ?? reasons. Johnson’s blog was good because of the commenters insight, not his pithy cut and paste posts. His loss is our gain. Welcome and drag your husband in sometime too.

  12. Beeduwine says:

    That blog is going belly up, tits and all. Waiting for the LGF and 9-11-was-an-inside-job convergence. The prognosis says 2012, if Obama loses to the Illuminati/GOP candidate.

  13. Bagua says:

    Ha! Welcome ryannon! All Hal ryannon!

    *Sounds trumpets, cues choir, checks that the liquor cabinet is locked*

  14. trebob says:

    Beeduwine :
    That blog is going belly up […] The prognosis says 2012 […]

    It’s hard to see how LGF will last through 2011 at this rate.

  15. ryannon says:

    Daedalus :
    Chuck is a smear merchant.

    It’s infantile and the last resort of someone with extreme doubts about his own self-worth. There was a period when he appeared to have it more or less under control, but increasingly, it’s being directed at people who were in one way or another, close to him – either as former colleagues or like the people here, former contributors to his blog.

    The real ‘meltdowns’ have been among those closest to him at LGF, such as Sharmuta and Reggie. I think that says something about the level of disconnect over there, and the price that particularly susceptible people pay for it when they can no longer maintain the illusions of prescience and near-infallibility that Charles has been constructing over the years.

    • Mandingo Warrior says:

      I agree with you about Reginald Perrin. That was the most epic blog flounce I have ever witnessed. From “Piss off, and let the big boys talk.” right down to the “why can’t you read the words that were written” to showing back up here to hurl accusations of anti-semitism he turned what was an overnight flounce into a three day epic binge of a flounce.

      Bravo, Reginald. It was more entertaining than television.

    • Charles wants a new gig says:

      Thing is, his god complex is so particularly obvious and at the same time laughable. How can the “privilege” of posting their pompous drivel at a linkdump like LGF overcome people’s healthy urge to point and scoff?

  16. ryannon says:

    Bagua :
    Ha! Welcome ryannon! All Hal ryannon!
    *Sounds trumpets, cues choir, checks that the liquor cabinet is locked*

    And your women behind doors!

  17. Macha says:

    I wonder how long it will take the tattletales to let him know I’m here now and use that tired and overdone “hater” label.

    • Bagua says:

      You are by definition a “hater” and crazy and such just for posting here. Isn’t that fun to know? Just full of rage and such.

      Only the couple dozen folks at LGF are sane and balanced, the rest of the blogospere, right, left, center and anarchist, are all crazy. Charles Johnson says so.

    • jordanduram says:

      Why not tell him yourself, through the contact form?

  18. Bagua says:

    I note that Charles Johnson has started his typical defamation.

    Charles Johnson is a smear merchant. This is well established and beyond dispute.

    Ryannon was ever a level headed, gracious and humorous poster on LGF. Here he has never posted a word of “hate”.

    I prefer to laugh at Charles, but at times like these, I note that Charles Johnson is a liar and a smear merchant. *spits*

  19. D says:

    I guess “dipshit” isn’t gonna catch on…lol. Okay last dipshit post.

  20. ryannon says:

    I look forward to a bit of music posting around here when no one is looking, Bagua.

  21. ryannon says:

    Macha :

    They’ll have to use The Wayback Machine to figure out who you were. I believe you got your ankles bit by the Weasel at one point, so that should be enough to categorize you as a ‘hater’.

      re: #138 Lidane

      On a completely OT note, I went to a party at a classmate’s house last night and had something I’ve never tried before– Malibu soaked gummi worms. She took the worms, put them in a bowl, then filled it with rum and let them sit for most of the day, soaking up all the booze. They reminded me of jello shots, and were just as dangerous.

      Thank goodness I’d had the sense to leave my car at home and just cab it to and from the party instead of driving. Yeesh.

      That sounds really cool. My husband loves gummi worms. I’m going to have to get some and try it.

      sounds like you will fit in here just fine…. 8)

      • snowcrash says:

        ISTE, maybe not everyone wants their first or last post posted. You know too much. They might want a fresh start, unless they posted an awesome flounce.

      • Internet Septic Tank Engineer says:

        Yeah you are right… It isn’t really fair, I was just letting Charles know we love his Search Engine so much. The gunmmi worm thing is cool though…

      • ISpeakJive says:

        That sounds a lot more interesting than eating the worm at the bottom of the tequila bottle. Plaggh.

  24. ryannon says:

    Damn, it must suck to be Charles.

    • Carolina Girl as Arachne says:

      Clueless’s problem is that he really believed he was the reason the blog was great. He wasn’t. It was the people that posted there that made it great – you had people who worked in defense, you had people who worked in medicine, in law, in information technology, in politics, in think tanks, even. You had a person who was part of the detail that followed the President via the Secret Service.

      Now you have….Ludwig von Quack Quack. Community College janitor masquerading as climate control scientist and Yeshiva scholar. And KKKilgore Trout. Any blog that claims KKKilgore Trout among its supreme elite is already toast.

    • Bagua says:

      It is sad, really. He had some remarkable early accomplishments in the blogosphere, was widely admired and praised.

      Now he is just a bitter shell of his former self, ruling over a couple dozen sychophants and remaining forum members with a “Dear Leader” mentality. Strange and bizarre transformation.

      • Davehm says:

        LGF used to be one of my “go to” sites, I remember there used to be close to 1000 comments per post along with some cool links, now it’s just a waste land.

      • poteen says:

        I would beg to differ with your first paragraph.
        The Killian memo was likely fake but accurate and except for election year puffery an absolute ‘nontroversy’.
        Bush didn’t appear for a flight physical to qualify for flight time he was never going to get. Nothing to be ‘sugar-coated’ but not uncommon for NG and reserve pilots in 1973. The war was ending and active units were given priority in training spending. And even that was diminishing rapidly.
        It didn’t matter in 1973 or 2004.
        Other than providing this forum’s genesis, which he is only indirectly responsible for, he has personally accomplished nothing in the blogosphere. Other than pissing off a couple thousand people.

      • PeteP says:

        Lgf was one of my go-to sites also. For something like the Egypt protests, Lgf would have been one of the first sites I would have read. Now, I wouldn’t bother. The owner is insane and all the insightful commentators are gone.

    Since you posted that YouTube music video by Lizeta Nikolaou a few days ago, I’ve become fascinated by her (she’s a great-looking woman with a lovely voice) and with the history and the musical traditions of the Pontic Greeks in general. Thanks again for posting it here.

  40. Bureaucat says:

    I’ve seen this behavior before in political circles, religions, families and other social groups. When someone leaves a group that is especially orthodox the members of that group demonize them in order to protect their own orthodoxy from harm or question.

    The tragic part of these episodes where Charles feels the need to quickly smear those who question his orthodoxy is that it is very reminiscent of controlling cults. It is an “either you are with us or you are the enemy” mentality.

    My sin was simply looking at places other than the reservation. Many have been shunned for equally benign behavior that threatens Charles absolute control of the narrative.

  41. song_and_dance_man says:

    Foster made the same claim about me after I was banned. That I was sending him weird emails. It was a lie, or course, but he said it, I think, to further justify his decision to show me his back door. All I did was insist that he answer one question. Do you believe in God?

  42. Bureaucat says:

    Ironically, by banning (shunning) and demonizing those who disagree with his version of the truth Charles is acting exactly like the theocracy he claims to disdain.

  43. Charles wants a new gig says:

    See, here’s where I get confused.

    When someone acts like Chuckwit, that is, unaccountable, random, malicious, slandering, petty, and mean, we say with disdain (and rightly so) that he has a god complex and should get over himself.

    Yet people get all giddy and worshipful when they imagine there’s an actual “God” who acts like Charles.

    Anyone care to splain that?

      • Charles wants a new gig says:

        Plainly I am not concerned with being banned here, or with not being free to believe or disbelieve. What interests me is the fact that some people actually believe that it’s not only somehow important to accept a certain metaphysical viewpoint, but also that those who don’t deserve eternal punishment for their failure to toe the faith line. This is not something I have ever been able to understand, and it reminds me of Chuck’s mentality. He, thankfully, merely has the power to exile people from his silly chat room. What I don’t get but would like to understand – if only to avoid them better – is how people who mock someone like CJ can actually think it’s just peachy for a real (in their minds) deity to mete out what they believe to be real eternal punishment for similarly absurd infractions like “dissing the blog owner.”

        Perhaps I’m dense. Perhaps my mocking tone does not deserve an answer. Perhaps this is not the time or place. But it’s a real question.

      • Bagua says:

        You seem to be missing the point that this is not a political nor religious blog. It is here to mock LGF.

        What you are described is symptomatic of human behavior. From time immemorial people have coalesced into various groups or factions, be them family, political, religious, or what have you. People find comfort and acceptance in those that they believe are like themselves. I think it is as simple as that. People are assuaged by the known, what is like them, and abhor the unknown or that which is unlike them.

    Maybe a spiritual advisor would have more answers about God if you are searching. I don’t think a mock blog is um the right place, unless you are mocking. Then talk to yourself. Were you at LGF when AndyMacOP was there? He was a Dominican Friar. He left LGF of course, don’t know if he was banned or not. He would have answers. I could try to find him if you were interested, I had his blog favorited a long time ago.

    • Whatever says:

      Umm, he was recently banned. His nic was xxxx the xxxxx.

    • Daedalus says:

      Andy was banned from LGF. He posted on Blogmocracy in the early days. I haven’t seen him in a while.

      • Charles wants a new gig says:

        Interesting. Why wad he banned? For being a Catholic?

      • snowcrash says:

        Why was he banned? Bet he was defending the Bible literalists even though he is Catholic. Had to be it. But commemnter Irenicum stayed at LGF and he was in Theology or Divinity school or something. Seems like that would be an uncomfortable fit. Wonder if he is gone now? Lot of interesting people once made LGF home.

      • snowcrash says:

        squee, I found Fr. Andy. LOL On YouTube!

  47. Charles wants a new gig says:

    Sorry, godbaggers. Go right on believing in the Universal Charles. The mockery just gets a rich new layer that way.

    • Daedalus says:

      We are trying to avoid political or religious talk here. Lets focus on Chuck.

      Is it apparent to you how ludicrous that statement is? No need to answer. The statement holds enough of that.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      This doesn’t sound like typical Charles. I’m picking up the essence of Barret Brown in the sentence structures. Weird. I wonder if they worked on it before the big blow up.

      Anywho, Charles is trying to bond with his new tribe! How sweet. But I have feeling underpants gnomes will be following him til the end of time trying to steal his mojo. The first comment there is hilarious!

    I’m a lapsed-Catholic, turned fake-Greek Orthodox Christian to placate the wife’s family, agnostic since about age 14. I’m interested in all religions, and have been studying them since I was in college. Not trying to debate the true scholars, but I have a pretty broad (that’s what she was) acquaintance with most of them. I’ve also studied the Great Atheists, and mythologists like Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung.

    Almost everybody I know is religious to some degree, from my very-Catholic family, to my in-laws’ Greek Orthodoxy, and a few stray cats like my Jehovah’s Witness sister-in-law. Some Protestant Heretics, too. Burning’s too good for those heathens…they enjoy it!

    In all this time, and I’m going to be 52 in a couple of weeks, I’ve never seen the need to mock the religious. Well, there were a couple of years in my teens, but I kept it mostly to myself, lest my head be slapped off by me sainted mother.

    Belief in a higher power is deeply-ingrained in man’s psyche, and found in practically every society throughout history, all over the world. I believe there’s a reason for that. Not sure what that reason is, quite, but I’m working on it.

    People who mock the religious beliefs of others are insecure about their own philosophy. Especially when they keep harping on it.

    • spaceallah says:

      Well said. We seem to share the same basic philosophy.

    • GrandJunctionite says:

      Same age, same religous philosophy. I went to church every sunday for the 1st 16 years of my life. Since I was old enough to choose not to go, i suppose I’ve been for the 50 odd weddings, funerals and what not.

      I see no reason to mock anyone who does feel the need to worship a higher power.

      • Charles wants a new gig says:

        Worshipping a higher power is one thing. Actually believing that those who don’t worship your fave higher power, or who get the worship wrong, deserve eternal damnation for that, see, that’s the part I don’t get. And don’t tell me no one believes that. You may not. Maybe no one on this board does. But it’s a big damn draw in many churches. And it reminds me of Charles, which is why I brought it up.

    Oh boy, another bash Michelle Bachmann thread in which Chris Matthews is the intellectual hero. Apparently he called her a doody head instead of a balloon head.

    • Lunatic van Coyote says:

      Speaking of intellectuals, I don’t suppose that they’re talking about Harvard Law’s Chuck Schumer’s lesson in government, are they?

    • song_and_dance_man says:

      When really big words escape the mind. That is a problem with libs. They resort to grunts when cornered.

    • spaceallah says:

      in which Chris Matthews is the intellectual hero

      LOL

      I wonder how come Johnson hasn’t commented on Matthews’ obsession with Obama’s birth certificate?

      • song_and_dance_man says:

        Something about the left leg that no longer goes all tingly. The therapy of the sekrit support group is addressing the problematic loss.

      • spaceallah says:

        According to Matthews, the Panama Canal is in Egypt, but yet he schools people with regularity according to Johnson. Panama, Suez, what’s the difference? Facts are for little people!

  53. Bagua says:

    Whatever :
    Indeed. LET THE RECORD SHOW that xxx, a.k.a xxxx, is an atheist, just like Chuck Johnson. And LET THE RECORD ALSO SHOW that he hasn’t been banned from DoD for that.
    K? Done.

    Thank you for putting it that way! I appreciate it.

  54. Internet Septic Tank Engineer says:

    Back on topic. I think this sums up the tribal thinking at LGF.

    Within the tribe there’s no need to be concerned with facts or accuracy; if the goal is to demonize a hated opponent, for example, anything and everything goes, including smears known to be false. That’s because the objective is not to convince an impartial observer — it’s to reinforce the tribal bonds, the sense of belonging to something, with its own shared reality. That shared reality doesn’t have to reflect actual reality; anybody who doesn’t share it is by definition not part of the tribe, and therefore an enemy.

    Anyone not part of the tribe, or thrown out of the tribe is the enemy. That is pure Little Green Footballs.

  55. garycooper says:

    Bagua :He seems to be cut and pasting from his own playbook. Typical of the mote/beam hypocrites.

    He’s cut-and-pasting the whole article, in fact. Those aren’t his phrases. I’ve seen them before, I’m sure of it.

    Charles defrauding another bunch of suckers…must be a day ending in “y.” 🙄

    • garycooper says:

      I know where I saw it before…on “Survivor.”

      “The tribe has spoken. It’s time for you to go.”

      Pack your shit and leave, racist-wingnut-stalker-deniers. We don’t like your kind.

    It sounds like you’ve discarded a few sky muppets and are looking for a higher power. It just bothers you so much. I’m anything but a defender of the faith, any faith but it doesn’t matter that much to me if someone else is.
    I get annoyed by evangelists at the door but they do me no damage and deserve no more hatred than a salesman.
    If some craggy old fart points a finger at me and says you’re going to burn in hell, I tell him it sounds warmer than a cloud at 40,000 feet.
    It doesn’t sound like you’re firm in your belief. It sounds like you’re considering that one of the finger pointers might be right. (It’s the Mormons. South Park checked it out)
    In any case, avoid prophets named Muhammad, Jones, Manson or Johnson and lighten up Francis.

  57. garycooper says:

    (It’s the Mormons. South Park checked it out)

    But then there was another episode, called “All About The Mormons,” that kind of teased the Mormons a bit. Also gave them some love, for being generally decent people. It’s a really good episode. 🙂

  58. garycooper says:

    Whatever :It reads like Chuck’s trying to out-Ludwig Ludwig. Either that, or out-Reggie Reggie.

    I thought Reginald Poodle was already “out.” I knew Lewd-Thing was still denying his secret man-luv, but I always read Reggie as quite the flamboyant, proud gay man. It was the most admirable thing about him, frankly.

    • Bagua says:

      True. Most of the remaining males on LGF are obviously gay. Some appear ashamed to admit it. They should realise that this is 2011 and nobody will hold it against them.

      • Charles wants a new gig says:

        That they might go to all the trouble of coming out and still no one offers to hold ANYTHING against them is probably their greatest fear.

  59. sacred ham says:

    On the LGF TPM thread, one of the posters says

    The problem isn’t people sharing an identity with others. That’s pretty much the history of mankind. It’s the us vs. them. That’s a regression in civilization.

    So I guess that makes it LGF versus the “us versus them” people then? Hysterical.

    Maybe next Charles will write an essay on how the right (and only the right) demonizes, stereotypes, and caricatures the left.

  65. Bureaucat says:

    Holy Moly I missed a spirited debate about religion.

    I usually avoid trying to defend charactures of religion or God (which is what some of the above descriptions are). Classic straw man.

    Not to say that some religions aren’t all fiery and damnation to those who don’t believe. They exist but they are not representative of all religion and faith.

    Let’s just say the old testament was written for a tribal and agrarian society – and should be read in that context. God is hardly the sum of our perceptions and writings about him. (Heresay for the sola and literal crowd I know).

    Now that I’ve insured everyone disagrees with me I’ll go back to lurking on current threads. 🙂
