The Transformation of the Ethically Confused

Guest Post by MrPaulRevere

In the last week we have seen enough lies, ethical confusion, moral posturing and misdirection to last a lifetime during the Weinergate scandal. And leading the pack of the the ethically confused was a certain Little Green blogger we all know well.

After the election of Barack Obama the Little Green blogger has attempted to ressurect his career by reinventing himself as Saint Charles of Johnson the great defender of the poor and oppressed, a fearless protector of minorities and the elderly and a valiant warrior against the wingnut hordes who are hell bent on returning America to the 1840’s.

While this act may be gaining traction with some, many of us have long memories. While St. Charles postures as a champion of the gay community, in the not so distant past he was quite willing to pass along slanderous rumors that hinted at a lesbian relationship between Hillary Clinton and Rep. Weiners wife:


My message to St. Charles’s new secular parish is to beware: You follow a man with a long history of ethical confusion who is quite willing to pass along homophobic rumors about whomever he dislikes at the moment. You can’t say you weren’t warned.

~ ~ ~

Update by nils: The link in the LGF thread was to an article by the infamous Luke Ford. Charles has no problem with this – “guilt by association” applies only to people Charles smears, not to Charles himself:

Update (ChenZhen): Not surprisingly, like many other lizards who were politely objecting to Johnson’s decision to run with this story, “GreenFootballFan” is among the 4000+ now banned from LGF.

    Ruh-roh!
    Time to spin, spin, spin away more cognitive dissonance, Lizards.

  2. Grand Junctionite says:

    Charles Johnson has done more left turns than a NASCAR driver.

  3. garycooper says:

    The other day he referred to rumors of his own homosexuality as being “sick and twisted speculation.” Really, Chunky? Is that how you want to refer to such a significant subset of society?

    I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the next Zombie photoessay on the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade featured at least one shot of Fatass sporting an inflated-scrotum, standing around with the other inflated-scrotum guys talking about how depraved the Republicans are these days. Seriously.

  4. Juan Epstein says:

    Sham marriage.

  5. garycooper says:

    Hmm…I wonder if Chunky met Iceweasel through his association with Luke Ford. Also, I wonder if Luke is a current loozard in good standing. Seems like he’d fit right in.

  6. sacred ham says:

    No mention of Luke Ford would be complete without the infamous Luke Ford underwear slave pic.

    Warning – no nudity, but NSFW and you may need the brain bleach. In this case, apologies in advance if inline image embedding does work:

    Yep, that looks like someone who would fit in at the swamp now.

    This is more the image LF was trying to project at the time (also NSFW):

    The guy in the brown sweater vest in the background cracks me up.

  7. sacred ham says:

    DoD got a link from McCain:

    And you know who’s laughing hardest now, Charles?

    Not me. Not Breitbart. It’s all those ex-Lizards you banned from LGF.

  8. You don’t have to spin when you don’t care. Charles has adapted to his position as a bottom feeder, thus no defending credibility because he has none.

      You’re just going to dodge the question, right? And throw out the tired, stupid old “If you want to stop AGW then you should go live in a cave” meme?

      I respect your right to have your views. I don’t respect that you dodge direct questions and play passive-aggressive bullshit. It’s wimpy and sad.

      Are you still an AGW-denier, by the way?

      • Is this the same guy who wore the top hat?

        And spats. And a knife in his butt.

      • snowcrash says:

        I’m stealing this Obdicut imitation from Beed. All spelling and grammar errors are his. Lol

        Why do you say that? What is your point? How would it matter antway? I don’t think you really mean what you just said – do you? Why are you skirting around? What do you hope to acheive by not answering my questions? I am never going to get an answer, am I? Why are you not answering me?

  10. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Obdicut demands answers to his direct questions! Cough it up, now, in the name of Chunk!

  11. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Moral of the story: any almost sixty-year-old “political blogger” who uses his baby picture for an avatar is likely to have ethical views that match his apparent ideal age.

  12. garycooper says:

    Oh, that’s wonderful! 😆

    Time to double-down on AGW, now that Weinergate and Reveregate have both gone tits-up. Why not? I mean, just because all the real scientists are quietly streaming out of the exits as the whole theory has stubbornly refused to produce any of the predicted results (no warming in the past decade, no seas rising, an amazing hurricane-drought, polar bears’ numbers increasing, etc., etc.), is no reason for the Fatass to reconsider his hasty, overnight decision (in 2008) to abandon his former skepticism and jump onto the AGW-bandwagon with both feet.

    More merriment is on the way!

    Thank you, Chunky. And Lewd-Freak, if you could just write another of your “rigorous science” posts on the subject, that would be icing on the cake. And we deserve cake!

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      They’re all just testy at the swamp because when Chunk posted about Weiner calling a presser to “deal with” the latest “allegations” from Breitbart, they really didn’t foresee a tearful confession and the implosion of all their hopes and dreams for the month. Then Adam Baldwin totally schooled their hero and laughed off his pathetic schoolyard retorts. This makes them mad.

      So now one of the remaining conservatives has to be tortured into revealing his heart of darkness. But NJDH seems to know that you don’t have to get mad on the intarwebs. Obdicut is prancing for our entertainment! Thanks, Obdi!

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      What Obdicut and Chunk and the rest of the true believers fail to grasp is that at this point they’re just prancing around for our entertainment. It’s a delight.

  13. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Hmm. Two fresh, insightful comments of mine disappeared. What up?

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      I’m in moderation? Seriously?

      • Whatever says:

        FYI, it happens to everybody. The spam filter works in strange ways. And they can’t turn it off, or we’ll be inundated with “comments” about how to make your penis larger. Especially with all the Weinergate talk.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        OK, no problem.

      • nils says:

        There are two spam filters at work on this WP blog. One is Akismet. The other is the “wp_blacklist_filter”. Easily 95% of the false positives for spam are generated by wp_blacklist_filter.

        Akismet is pretty good at not registering false positives. Fine tuning Akismet is beyond the control of even the admins here – they either choose to let it run or choose to not have it running. It’s running, and it does a great job of filtering out true spam (e.g. Ugg boots adverts).

        The “wp_blacklist_filter”, OTOH, works from a list of words. That list is populated by the admins. At one point in time it was generating a huge number of false positives. Then that “blacklist” populated by the admins was (apparently) trimmed down and the false positive problem greatly mitigated.

        It (“wp_blacklist_filter”) seems to be getting worse again. Only admins can see and edit the list (i.e. I can’t). At one point, early on, as an example, the word “Reggie” was on the list, in a mistaken effort to block Perrin apparently. The main result, of course, was that any comment that used the word “Reggie” was marked as spam.

        Anyway, your “in moderation” is nothing personal or even intelligent. Looking at the WP source code, it looks to me like if there’s nothing on that wp_blacklist word list then the entire wp_blacklist_filter routine is by-passed, so it’d be interesting to see what’s on that list.

      • snowcrash says:

        Once it decides you are spam, it only gets worse. Personal experience.

  14. Voltaires Crack says:

    Chuck was the only lefty who, in defense of Wiener, offered the explanation that it could have actually been a picture of his own penis.

    That is a classic.

    I wish some talented blogger would post about that.

  15. OldLineTexan says:

    Yeah, “Reveregate” didn’t work out too well for Stalker Charles.

    Here’s a nice debunking from noted right-wing smear outlet “NPR”:

    http://www.npr.org/2011/06/06/137011636/how-accurate-were-palins-comments-on-paul-revere

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      But he got a mention from Maddow!

      Well, not a mention, but she showed a page of his on cable TV! That’s going to bring in half a dozen curious lurkers (those who can be bothered to record and pause that segment to try and figure out which website to go to)! So a big “LGF arigato” to Rachel! Even though she probably had nothing to do with the graphics for that show, and doesn’t even know who Chunk is!

      The man’s self-enamored pomposity never ends.

    • garycooper says:

      That NPR interview is one for the ages, I tell ya. Pounds the whole “Palin is a moron about history!”-story flat, once and for all. I mean, a couple of other profs already did that, but not on NPR. 🙂

      • ISpeakJive says:

        Thinking about this some more- His whole ride was “secret” so that he wouldn’t attract attention to himself and could complete the ride and get all the towns warned, without getting interrupted and arrested. But once he successfully warned the towns, they spread the message by ringing bells and firing shots and getting everybody ready to defend against the British. Bells were ringing all over the countryside. If the Regulars had any spies (ya think?) they’d have to know what the bells meant- that the colonists getting ready to fight back. The colonists didn’t stay silent and armed, they made it obvious they were armed and ready.

        She is correct that his trip resulted in the whole countryside warning the British that they were ready for them. Bring it on.

        Too much nuance, I guess.

    I propose that the verb ‘weiner’ be officially entered into the lexicon of slang.

    weiner – v. – to double down on an idiotic position as all holders of that position are bailing out like rats on a sinking ship.

    weiner – n. – the act of doubling down on an idiotic position as all holders of that position are bailing out like rats on a sinking ship.

    Examples:

    Charles Johnson really weinered up his predictions on the mid-term elections.

    Charles Johnson is taking the weiner on AGW.

    Variations:

    Uh-oh. Charles Johnson is headed to Weinerville in his coverage of the Paul Revere nontroversy.

    Good Lord. There’s rumors about a Boehner love affair. Do you think Charles Johnson will smoke that weiner and post?

    Etc.

      Good googamooga. He just never stops! Either he really has no clue that what he writes makes him sound like he ought to be in jail (post-haste) or he is on the verge of committing a real crime. These are not normal thoughts, much less thoughts that you share with the world and think there’s nothing wrong with them.

  19. garycooper says:

    Heheh…I agree, the weiner-brand is a strong one, with lots of humorous connotations and possibilities. Why not an award based on The Weiner, to be given to the most foolish dickhead of the year, who doubles down repeatedly on the dumbest idea imaginable? Or something like that. I can see a few prototype trophies inflating themselves as we speak.

    “LGF Takes The First Weiner!”

  21. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Funny how Chunk seems to disavow politics with his quote on the ONT. Could he be getting tired of being wrong all the time? Will LGF turn into a baby-picture blog?

    Meanwhile, this “Page” headline should cause some heads to explode over there: “ABC News Poll: Romney Pulls Even Against Obama in Head-to-Head Match-Up”

    • sacred ham says:

      Will LGF turn into a baby-picture blog?

      Well, actually the quote says:

      that you just have to put up with in your life if you happen to have contracted it

      so that makes it sound more like “I’m stuck with this damned politics blog.”

      It’s even less likely that Chuck will quit or reposition LGF than it is that Walter will come back.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        I was kinda hoping Walter would show up for a gloat and a flounce. The man has class.

  25. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    I’m guessing that at this point, Chunk’s day consists of getting up at the crack of noon, piss into another bottle, take a hit off the Cheetoes bag, make a “Derp!” sound, and finally, type “Charles Johnson”into google.

    Someone needs to tune into the Culver City news feed, and keep an eye out in the “Weird News” department.

    Interesting stuff on the OOT at the swamp:

    Sergey Romanov declares that racism is “hard-wired” into humans:
    “To repeat, racism is completely natural. It’s a part of the xenophobia hardwired in humans which brings an evolutionary advantage. It doesn’t make it OK.”

    Obdicut declares rape is hard-wired:
    “Boys will be boys, and that’s why we need to recognize that we have natural proclivities to rape, just like we do to violence, so we can keep that shit under control, because it’s foul, evil, and wrong.”

    All this immediately after a thread about the evil of not accepting ‘hard-wired’ homosexuality. Nimble intellects over there in loozard-land.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Obdicut is generalizing from his own internal foulness again. He probably also thinks everyone likes to dress like a fool and get stabbed in the ass, and steal Christmas trees every year. What a lowlife.

      I’ve never felt like raping a woman, and for me, no has always meant no, at whatever point of arousal I had arrived.

    Breibart should just ignore LGF. I think he gives them good Karma just by mentioning them. Let LGF slide under the trash heap of history. Logic has left that blog. Truth has left that blog. What’s left of it is situational morals and ethics of people willing to let their minds be molded and twisted into a caricature of who they really are. Charles enjoys his game. He needs clueless posters to validate himself.
