Charles thinks he’s funny

Charles, you think that’s cute? I know plenty of people who would punch you in the face for that.

    Ah yes the 1976 King Kong. Just watched it on tv the other day. With a young Jessica Lange. Chuckles probably likes it because he identifies with the hippy enviro-freak played by a young Jeff Bridges, going up against the evil corporatists who want to exploit the oil found on the island.

  2. gizbot7 says:

    It’s vapid, but for once I don’t think he’s being a douche. At least not on purpose anyway.

    • dwells38 says:

      Think what your saying thoug Gizbot. This is LGF! They brought us the WOT! CJ’s blog represented the BEST of anti-Jihad. Now reduced to this shit? Background for fucking Linda Blair forchrissakes with some lame-o 80’s soundtrack? Spit!

      • gizbot7 says:

        You’re right of course. I guess I was looking at it through current LGF glasses and using that as a reference point, it’s not so bad. Looking at it from how it was before, it’s pathetic and sad.

      • dwells38 says:

        And didn’t mean to criticize you. Just coming to grips with it myself!

      • Bunk X says:

        Chuck saw nothing wrong with posting a video that makes light of it all. Reminds me of the viral email that went out on September 12, a Dr. Seuss parody of WhoVille. I received it from several sources, told them all to go to hell.

    • RightWingWriter says:

      I was evacuated from Tower One on 9/11. For days I could smell it burning from my deck in Jersey City. I saw absolutely nothing wrong with that video.

    A better flick that prominently features the WTC is “Man on Wire,” a recent documentary about a French tightrope walker who actually walked between the two towers, from the top of one roof to the other one, on a tightrope shortly after they were constructed. The story tells of the plans that he and his collaborators made to sneak into the building one night and surreptitiously string the wire between the buildings and do the walk before getting arrested. Amazing cojones on that guy. No net.

  4. dwells38 says:

    I saw that too Daedalus. It’s sickening that he finds some superficial Hollywood crap movies where they use the Twin Towers as backdrops as his most poignant memories of their existence. Sad really. And shows just how superficial he and his sycophants are.

    And reading his minions comments the dumbasses weren’t even on the internet that day. No it was people like us who have corporate jobs and internet connections that followed the whole thing online that day. I remember hitting Drudge and maybe even LGF for the first time that day. That’s what turned me onto it.

    And I remember going into a conference room and seeing the second plane hit and feeling sick. We knew it was terrorism after the first but when the second hit you had a better sense of the depravity and evilness that Islamism can produce. Not a good feeling.

    If it ever happens again and I hope it doesn’t I look forward to Weazil Zipper’s minute by minute coverage. They carry and maintain the torch that some other websites evidently don’t think is important anymore.

    • Daedalus says:

      A man who’s blog was built by 9/11 tries to be cute.

    • sven10077 says:

      It’s not a shock, he is the most superficial blogger I know that even attempts to pretend they are a serious voice. He would feel entirely differently if I hired a troupe of clowns to help me film a movie set in Dachau that mocked the holocaust not that I would. He cannot comprehend that it is not a gag and some people will never and indeed can never “get over it and uh go pick up the city park or something and be ‘service’ man!”

      He can’t find it in him to wonder why politicians are crowding out the men who were there, why the names aren’t read, and why a day of reflection is now a day to get scolded into “community service” because he is now content with the PotUS.

      Kathleen Parker at least was more honest in her bad faith bargain in her vapid column…..

      “I am happy with things now so let’s all get along.”

      http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/an-america-that-no-longer-knows-itself/2011/09/09/gIQA3ju5FK_story.html?wprss=rss_opinions

      As we reflect on the events of 10 years ago, it would be nice if all sides could resolve to invite America’s better angels back to the huddle. Another terror attack would put things in perspective, all right, but our survival ultimately depends on our willingness to marshal reason and restraint against the emotional terrorism that surely will bring us down.

      At the risk of sounding bossy: America, heal thyself. Please.

      all because her little Godling faces domestic opposition a 1/5th as hard as she and others gave the last guy…..

    • Bunk X says:

      If you’ve never seen it, this movie was a great tribute.

  5. garycooper says:

    “Man On Wire” is an awesome flick. King Kong, well…you know the drill. Whatevs.

    Chunky is a horrible disaster, like 9/11. He should be ashamed to show his face on Sunday, 9-11-2011. Not that anyone’s looking, but he should just keep his ugly, greasy, fat gray face implanted in Soros’ huge backside, for the duration.

  6. Arbalest says:

    Larches …. I feel your pain … it’s radiating … like a car alarm 1 block away at 2:00 AM.

    Hit the button, k?

    It’s Teh Orange Haze(R) man … the Cheetos, the fried Cheetos … the 100% preservative content provides no nutritional value, yet preserves cells from decay, leaving you stretched, thin gaunt. prone to social withdrawl, hallucinations, walking on all fours, premature balding, whacked-out philosophy…

    Gibson. Soon to be reduced to … particle board? … and all because of Cheeto-induced philosophy …

    Dude.

    I was preparing for a momentous meeting that morning, and running late, as per usual. I basically ignored the first crash, paying only minimal attention to the murmurs in the office while I kept on feverishly preparing the paperwork I needed for my court-appearance that morning. Then came the second plane, and suddenly it was time for me to hit the road, in order to make it downtown on time. I’ll never forget the looks on my colleague’s faces, as I grabbed up my documents and left. They were all stunned, and I was still oblivious, because I was concentrating on the job at hand.

    By the time I drove from Southfield to Detroit, the first tower was down. When I got to the courthouse, they told me it was closed for the day, and to go home. My wife called, and told me to pick up the kids from school, as they were closing. She was with her father, who was recovering from a mild stroke in the hospital. It was a messed-up day, but I never would have guessed it would have led this country to where we are today.

    • dwells38 says:

      Jeezus Gary that’s such a typical story. We got the kids from daycare that day too just in case. And we’re hundreds of miles away from New York.

      I remember thinking “these fuckers have no idea what they’ve unleashed. We have guys that climb mountains in Afghanistan for FUN and they will kill your asses in a heartbeat”.

      I was seething because that was just such audacious shit-headedness beyond the pall. To kill those poor people like that. To kill and destroy like that and then say it’s to glorify some God is just an abomination and a profanity against life.

      That’s not a religion. I’m not one to talk about turning countries into shiny glass parking lots but that shit needs to be reformed and is not a civilized religious practice as it stands today. It must change. And for LGF to turn and act as though this isn’t still a major threat and evil in the world today as it was in 2001 really pains me, all kidding aside.

    • gizbot7 says:

      I think my comment went to your spam box. No biggie, just fyi.

      • Lord Nazh says:

        Show no comments in spam or awaiting moderation 😦 thanks for reading though 🙂

      • gizbot7 says:

        I think you have a problem with your system. The first time, I commented, then chose WordPress as “comment type” and entered my wordpress username. Since the screen doesn’t change and my comment was still there I hit post comment. The screen refreshed but the comment wasn’t there. Today, thinking it was user error the first time, I commented, tried it the same way as the first time and had the same result. So, a third time I clicked on “anonymous” under “comment as” and the same thing happened. None of the times did my comment show up. I don’t care about my comment but thought you would want to know if something was wonky. 🙂

  8. dwells38 says:

    This just pisses me off more and more. He has to remember it through some movie clips?? You don’t remember what happened you stupid asshole? You blogged about it extensively. You have to use Dan Meth’s video which if you reverse his names first letters is Man Deth! That’s a little awkward!

    LGF is a crappy little left-wing political ste and we need to mock with EXTRA energy any commemorative garbage he tries to pull tomorrow.

  9. ISTE says:

    In retrospect I think a moving tribute at little Green Footballs would have been to post the same articles today as were posted on September 10th 2001.

    I just had a quick look and the contrast between then and now is beyond belief.

    That probably holds true for any blog or website that was around ten years ago. The world really did change that day.

  10. garycooper says:

    I was going to post Dylan’s “Idiot Wind” in honor of our execrable MSM, but the record company is currently allowing nothing but mournful, shameless commentary in regards to the pathetic sales of their current offernings. So, if you don’t like it, go ahead and clean my garage.

    Quietly.

  11. gizbot7 says:

    Fox is playing “Timeline of Terror” if any are interested.

  12. FWIW, I don’t think the Johnson was trying to be flip or clever. He probably thinks that it’s perfectly appropriate, as though when the towers collapsed, everybody’s first thought was “Oh no! NOW what will be in the background of mediocre Hollywood films set in New York?”

  13. Pakimon says:

    I have a suggestion for any of the sycophant stalkers skulking by from The Swamp.

    If Emperor Chunky hasn’t deleted/blocked them, go and take a look at the LGF pages and comments from Sept. 11, 2001 and the days thereafter.

    I know this is a lot for your little minds to handle but if you’re as “open-minded” as you and virtually every other leftist moonbat claim to be, you’ll do it.

    If the Pope of CheetosTown has blocked/deleted those LGF pages and comments, ask him why.

    After all, he hadn’t yet been hoodwinked by the evil anti-jihad/Pam Gellar/(insert name of conservative/Tea Party boogyman here) cabal.

  14. Formercorpsman says:

    I just erased a long response to this.

    I’ll sum it up.

    Charles, you are a piece of shit.

  15. Pakimon says:

    I’m sure Chunkles and the rest of the simpering halfwits that infest The Swamp (not to mention the left side of the blogosphere) will be clucking and squealing about all the “hate” and “anger” being generated here and the rest of the right side of the blogosphere today.

    All the while, they’ll be basking in an aura of smug self-satisfaction because they’ve overcome the pain and their hearts are filled with “love” and “understanding”.

    At some level in their twisted little minds, they think that 9/11 was ultimately America’s fault because of (insert idiotic Leftist meme here).

    Never mind that they’re crapping all over the memory of the people who lost their lives.

    But hey, it’s all about feeling good about yourself, isn’t it? 🙄

  16. rightymouse says:

    We were attacked on 9/11 & Chuck thinks it was a joke?? What an effing bastard.
    Grrrrrrrr. That makes my blood boil. 9/11 was a transforming experience for me. I left the Dem party shortly after due to their stupidity & lack of seriousness about the threat of radical Islam and never looked back. Will never forget either.

  17. Pakimon says:

    One more comment and I’ll stop.

    So that video shows how Charles remembers 9/11?

    This video shows how I will always remember that day:

  18. Beau Nerd says:

    I dare say the transformation is complete. LFG is truly “post 9/11”.

    It actually could have been worse. He could have been a sanctimonious leftist prig about it preaching about how “we asked for it”, and insisting on penance by paying fealty to Gaia, as some have done. I’m wondering when that’s coming.

  19. Beau Nerd says:

    And the spam filter eated it again. F’n passive-aggressive software…

  20. YankintheEU says:

    Well, putting the remembrance of the 9/11 attacks in terms of a famously cheesy King Kong movie is pretty low class. It’s sending the message that the event is not that big of deal for him anymore.

    CJ can at least hold up the banner that he is not the biggest progressive douchebag of the day, which goes to Paul Krugman: “Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror.”

    • rightymouse says:

      The fake economist shows his a-hole liberal stripes. What a mo-fo.

    • LouieD says:

      Are you saying that Kerik, Giuliani, and Bush are heroes for incessantly bringing up 9/11 to gain political points?

      • gizbot7 says:

        The problem with people like you is that you are so used to being fed bullshit, you don’t know honesty when you see it. You assume that they bring up 9/11 for points when the truth is that it affected them deeply, just as it did most normal Americans. It’s sad that you assume it is for political purposes.

  21. Zeus Crankypants says:

    Another one of Charles’ “brothers in blood”…

    What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

    http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/11/the-years-of-shame/?smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto

    Krugman didn’t open comments on this blog entry. He’s an elitist chicken shit. Pay attention to Charles, pay attention to Krugman, pay attention to EVERYONE who comments on LGF, especially the “conservative” who post over there… including the adult man-child Dark Falcon. All of them are anti-American to the core for even supporting these lefty traitors.

    • sven10077 says:

      Yeah I was going to post that here.

      The thing that keeps the pain and rage fresh in me when I need it regarding 9/11 are the jumpers.

      In a way guy a part of our nation jumped that day, it became pretty clear to me by 2004 that casual tolerance of the internationalist multi-culti mind is not possible.

      They blame us not the people who did this.

      They always have they are just getting ever more open about it.

      I think Krugman just made up my mind to give every non-essential piece of income and time I have to destroying Obama and the Democrat party next year.

      9/11 is not “National Guided Therapy Day” and I don’t need to be lectured by a guy who can’t carry his predecessor as mayor’s jockstrap when it comes to coping with crisis, or a President whose hardest task thus far has been deciding whether or not to kill a guy who has been our greatest national enemy since Khobar towers….a decision that took him only depending on who you believe 6-18 hours….

      • gizbot7 says:

        Even the National Geographic special I watched about it said he needed time to think about it. They glossed over it pretty quick, but either way, he shouldn’t have needed a nap to decide if OBL needed a steel projectile injection to the head. You worry about the American men and women part of the operation and civilians in the way, but that briefing doesn’t take 6 hours and an ambien.

    • KGB says:

      Note the very carefully chosen phrase “the hijacking of the atrocity” by Krugman. He’s deliberately equating Guiliani and Bush to the 19 hijackers of 9/11. Krugman and anyone who gives him credence are a cancer on this country and we need to take these sons of bitches out, before they forever sink this country.

      • garycooper says:

        Krugman is himself an atrocity. He’s wrong about everything! 😆

      • sven10077 says:

        None of this is by accident or genuine reflection. Their little prince is in trouble and rather than admit the guy they thought was Batman is not even Robin but instead Boy Blunder is killing them. They are passing into openly expressing the cognitive dissonance they guardedly embraced by 9pm on 9/11/01 when they gave into their own worst fears and imagined they would be punished and kept from power if they were ever exposed in their true thinking on foreign policy.

        They undermined Bush to get “whomever comes next” and what we got was Obama because after Bush’s failure to call them out on their domestic agenda and their undermining of our foreign policy irritated us we lost our unity in stopping them from essentially lying their way to winning ’08 through their willful silence on Obama’s character and paucity of experience.

        We must all move forward together or the democrats will continue to divide the nation into ever smaller and ever more competing groups competing for the ever smaller rewards the system will render as they pursue their cult like orthodox following on economics and international affairs.

      • gizbot7 says:

        People need to be aware of crap like this, but I don’t want them to stop. Even the most moderate American can see that this is crazy train shit and the more they try to protect Barry with this kind of rhetoric, the worse it makes him look. They are killing their own hero with their obsessive adoration.

      • LouieD says:

        Note how people apparently can’t use common words of the English language, like “hijack”, without conservative mind-readers telling us what people “really” mean by them. Inciting violence? How Hoffa-esque of you.

      • gizbot7 says:

        Actually, it’s called context. Let me make it easy for you:

        con·text (kntkst)
        n.
        1. The part of a text or statement that surrounds a particular word or passage and determines its meaning.
        2. The circumstances in which an event occurs; a setting.

  22. garycooper says:

    There’s no King Kong in this one, either:

  23. KGB says:

    I wonder if it’s too much to expect Chawuz, on 9/11, to return to sanity for just a second and condemn Krugman’s article?

    Remember how the NYT knee capped you, Chuckles?

  24. garycooper says:

    Chunky’s approximately the same level as the Troofers, in his grasp of the political scene. His retardation on the topic of AGW is another bit of evidence, regarding his cognitive abilities. This is a man who changed his mind on nearly every issue, in a matter of a few weeks’ time. Not because new evidence came in, but because he decided he didn’t like some of the people on the barricades with whom he’d previously been comrades-in-arms. And then there’s the whole Pam/Robert thing, and his infantile rage at being rejected romantically.

    Idiot wind blowing through the flowers on your tomb
    Blowing through the curtains in your room
    Idiot wind blowing every time you move your teeth
    You’re an idiot babe
    It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

  25. Meanwhile. London Uk. Vermin can do as they please,take note of how others are treated.
    As for Johnson;disgusting.

    • beed says:

      Disgusting.

    • gizbot7 says:

      As disgusting as that is, I take comfort in the knowledge that at least here, today, that would not fly. Even in DC where on any given day the mall is home to the most ridiculous of protesters, this scene would have been much different if they tried that here today. Tomorrow might be a different story, but today, not a chance.

    • PeteP says:

      Charles Johnson’s friends, part 1.

  26. snowcrash says:

    Hey, he has moved on. What can you expect from someone so shallow and self centered? No surprise for me.

  27. Golden Nugget says:

  28. kansas says:

    Getting close to Chris Matthews insane.

  29. ISpeakJive says:

    LGF, I thought, used to have a grasp of the bigger picture, the world-wide clash of cultures. And in that way, for a while, it mattered.

    Now he just has daily hysterical hissy-fits about trivial things that don’t matter to anybody.

    He’s dialed his world-view down to his navel and it ain’t pretty.

  30. beed says:

    snowcrash :Hey, he has moved on. What can you expect from someone so shallow and self centered? No surprise for me.

    It is surprising, though. 9-11 defined him as a blogger, and then he treats it with such lightness. Strange.

    • TreBob says:

      He never understood what made the blog popular. It was the posters, content and timing. Charles mistakenly thinks it’s all about him (‘I am LGF’) and as with most things in life, it isn’t and never was about a person.

    • snowcrash says:

      He denies history. He claims he was duped. He prefers the Hollywood image of the WTC to the tragedy. I can’t waste mental energy on people with his kind of simpleness. I am embarrassed to have ever posted there. #secretshame

    • Beau Nerd says:

      9–/11 defined him as a blogger, now he’s defined by “booger”.

      • PeteP says:

        Rathergate was another thing that defined him as a blogger and he’s played that down also claiming Dan Rather didn’t know the memos were faked. He’s clearly trying to distance himself from everything that once defined his blog. Sad in a way.

  31. snowcrash says:

    BTW Ace has a heart rending post about the “falling man” photo. Worth the pain.

  32. PeteP says:

    The lgf of 2006 would have commemorated this day with vivid and graphic pictures depicting the horrors of that day as well as a mention of the ideology which motivated the attacks (ie Islam). Instead, Johnson now remembers 9-11 with movies clips of King Kong climbing the towers. It all highlights his mental sickness or his moral depravity (or both).

  33. beed says:

    Watching the Bush interview now.

    • beed says:

      Bush was an American president for America and the American people. None of that new age world music gaia crap upgraded with nuance and fancy words and shit. I liked Bush. Still not sure if he was right on Iraq though, but I supported him at the time.

      • Bunk X says:

        There was a strategic reason for Iraq.
        1. Saddam should have been taken out years before.
        2. Turkey disallowed airspace.
        3. Bagdad had an airport.

      • dwells38 says:

        Yep and bringing the fight to the middle east rocked them on their heels and had them fighting our soldiers (God blessem’) and not our civilians at home (like on 9/11)

      • thrhymer197 says:

        We should have taken Hussein and his hell-spawn kids (Uday & Qusay) in Gulf War I in 1991. But Bush Sr. stopped short and to Saddam, it gave him a green light to pick up where he left off in his quest to out do some of the other dictators of the area. One big mistake (in my opinion was the farcical coalition we had) and the fact that Israel was told to deal with all the Scuds and do not dare retaliate.

        Also, the UN resolutions (not worth crap); but he violated quite a few, plus firing on military jets (ours) in the no-fly zones.

        One thing that annoyed me about Gulf War II, was giving Hussein time to move all his WMDs to Syria, Iran or send them to whoever was willing take them. Of course, according to liberals, Saddam did not have WMDs, and yet somehow used them on the Kurds.

        Don’t forget that the bastard Hussein was paying bounties (I think $25,000.00) to the families of homicide bombers that blew up Israelis. For that alone, he deserved to be hunted down and terminated.

        Here’s a flashback about the bounties, you may have to do a copy and paste:

  37. Overlook says:

    The Wally seems to be under the impression that what was lost on 9/11 were two tall buildings in New York City.

  38. Minnow says:

    the current discussion over there seems to be focused on the fact that the atrocities of ten years ago somehow reflect a small percentage of the muslim world.

    Yeah right.

    And that is why we still hear, on an almost daily basis, the voice of moderate muslims denouncing these acts of agression.

    SPIT.

    • If it ever came to be that we, as a country, were faced with a mortal enemy, this type of piffle would be quickly condemned and those that mouthed these ridiculous platitudes would be punched in the jaw. As it is, we have met our enemy on numerous battlefields across the world and soundly defeated him. Certainly, the fighting still continues in Afghanistan and, to some degree, in Iraq. But our enemy *has* been decimated by the inestimable courage and fighting skill of our troops, to whom is owed a debt that may never be repaid properly.

      The Taliban? If they want that barren, boulder strewn land, more power to them. There is nothing there for us to do any longer. Iraq? The story is in its early stages there, as well. Chances are, neither of these countries will survive as democracies when we finally pull out. But I would argue that it is not our job to make them democratic states. That is a job for those who populate those countries. Our job, accomplished in large measure, was to turn both of these nations into a killing field, a meat grinder in which to feed the best and bravest that AQ and its various offshoots could throw at us. We set the field, we set the terms, and the leadership of AQ made the strategic blunder of meeting us in the time and place of our choosing.

      A threat remains, of course, but it is surely much diminished. AQ or its successor groups might surely retain the ability to attack American soil. But any operational capabilities they once possessed are much degraded. In addition, with the advent of the regime changes now taking place across the region, an ideology that once held such fascination for the poor and dispossessed of those forsaken lands is now challenged by a people empowered to enforce their will upon autocratic regimes. It is easy to lure in those with no hope, but not so easy to lure a people who have effected momentous changes into what is, essentially, a death cult. Why choose death when the promise of a new day dawns?

      Bush, ten long years ago, said it best: he would work tirelessly to consign the Islamic fascists, and their abhorrent ideology, to the dustbin of history. His policies, and the continuation of those policies by Obama, has very nearly done just that.

      As I said, there is no telling how this story will end, but we have remade this region and effected a wonderous change. Would there have been an Arab Spring were it not for the blood spilled by the US and its allies? Surely not. And just as surely, we have denied Osama his fondest wish: the unification of the Arab world under his standard, devoted to restoration of the Holy Caliphate, living one and all under his oppressive rule. For all his delusions of grandeur, he now lays moldering at the bottom of the sea, may he rot there forever.

      This is how I choose to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11: remembrance of those who died on that terrible day, and acknowledgement, indeed a celebration, of the indomitable American will and spirit that has produced a decisive victory over the forces of jihadist evil. We paid a terrible price that day, and have for ten years, but in the end, we did not quit, we did not surrender and we fought not for treasure, not for lands or oil. We fought because we had to fight, and our fight has benefited free men the world over, whether they choose to recognize that fact or not.

      I ended my remembrance yesterday with a simple wish: a wish for peace. We have fought long and hard and well. Perhaps God will grace us now with a respite from our cares. I hope so.
