We seem to be getting quite a bit of traffic from many sites around the globe from new visitors looking for proof of Charles Johnson’s dishonesty in his vicious and unwarranted attacks against Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs), Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch), Baron Bodissey & Dymphna (Gates of Vienna), Fjordman, and others.
In fact, Johnson’s vile accusations began even before the casualty count was known.
Johnson attempts to place blame on innocent bloggers for being mentioned in Anders Breivik’s “manifesto,” while completely dismissing the fact that Johnson himself was not only linked to but quoted – many times.

Charles Johnson is having a great old time with the Norwegian shootings. He feels vindicated and is having fun attacking his enemies. The Jazz Guitarist is now attacking the Rightwing blogosphere for defending Pam Geller, Robert Spencer and others from accusations of responsibility. He claims Conservatives are circling the wagon.
Charles, you clearly have a short memory!
Mr. Jazz Guitarist, you circled the wagons around Anthony Weiner. Despite all the evidence he was guilty. The people you arae attacking had nothing to do with the Norwegian shootings. Did Pam, Robert or Fjordman ever call for shooting up camps or government buildings? If they did call for violence, prove it Charles !
On the other hand Charles, you did defend Weiner even after it became clear he was guilty. You even admit, you will defend any Progressive who is accused of misconduct. This makes you a hypocrite in attacking your enemies for circling the wagons.
Give it up Chuck!
Ripped from tonight’s riveting discussion at LGF (we couldn’t resist):
Gosh, that’s a great point! No wait…there were “counter-jihad” blogs around 9 years ago, I think. But just who was spreading around the work of folks like Bat Ye’or and tales of apocalyptic clashes of civilizations; popularizing terms like “dhimmitude” way back then?
Was it Gates of Vienna? Jihad Watch? Pam Geller? ….Fjordman?
LGF is the O.G….the counter-jihad blogdaddy.
Or, as Mark Steyn said in August ’02:
Or as Charles Johnson, whose excellent “Little Green Footballs” Web site turns up dozens of fascinating Islamic tidbits every day, suggested: “Maybe we should start a betting pool: Which European country will be the first to institute shari’a?”

Update: OK, Lidane needs a clue-by-four as well:
This is too easy. Johnson has three of these in the archives:
