“Center-left before 9/11.”Posted: February 13, 2011
Okay, so are you all strapped in and ready to go? Hardhats on? Great. We’re going spelunking into the dark depths of the Memory Hole. Now before we descend into the vapors of the tar pits, check out this quote for accuracy:
“‘Pretty much center-left before 9/11.‘ Charles Johnson’s blog discusses topics related to the War On Terror.”
Nope. That’s not an old pitch. That’s a screenshot from a current Kindle advert captured today. For 1.99 British Pounds ($3.18) per month, you can get LGF delivered to your doorstep from across the pond. Now let’s take a closer look at the advertisment:
Heh. Got the old LGF Anti-Jihad logo on it. After enlarging it, it appears that the post is dated 16 October 2007, but it’s still kinda fuzzy to read. So I did what any SwampSpelunker would do. I Googled it… and guess what?
Yup. It’s gone down the Memory Hole. Can’t find that post in Google cache either, because it bounces right back to the current LGF Front Page to rack up a baker’s dozen views on Charlie’s Magic Mojo Counter. Now that my curiosity has been piqued, what should one do in a situation like this?
CALL THE BOILER ROOM CREW!
Now, why would Charles Johnson want to bury a post like this one?
There he was, at the peak of his game, and recently Charles decided to vaporize that thread in its entirety. Maybe the LGF TrueViewValueCount was too low.

[Correction – Apparently the post was not deleted.
“The Google thing – redirecting all searches like that to current LGF
front page – is something Johnson did, seems like CZ had a DoD article
on it before. But just because that happens doesn’t mean the old LGF
post isn’t there and accessible via direct link, because it is.” – NS]
