At one time Charles Johnson stood against Islamists, but now he stands with them. A French magazine is running a cartoon showing Mohamed naked. Charles Johnson would have supported the right of this artists to make this cartoon. Instead he condemns this cartoon makes clear where he stands.
Charles claiming there needs to be responsibility for free speech is hysterical. He complains when the Diary of Daedalus calls him on his hate speech.
If this is a tiny fraction, why have Islamist parties won free elections in these countries?
Gus802 portrays the JIhadists as victims!
Gus802 doesn’t mention the acts of Islamic terror against Israelis, Coptic Christians, Chaldeans and Hindus. Groups like the EDL were formed in reaction to Islamic aggression.
This is priceless from Charles. He generalizes Christians on a daily basis and allows bigotry on his blog. Killgore then hist Charles with a dose of reality!
Charles refuses to accept the truth. The majority of the Islamic world, supports the Islamist cause.
Charles is trying to be slick with the wording. He did imply a majority of Muslims support free speech. Now he is claiming he just meant millions. Killgore doesn’t back down with the truth.
Charles Johnson is OK with trashing Christianity or Mormonism. Yet when it comes to Islam, he wants to silence those who criticize it. The Cowardly Cretin wants the Fatawa against him removed.
This is Part 1 of a multi-part monograph about a blog named Little Green Footballs and its founder Charles Foster Johnson. Although he will likely consider it a “hit-piece,” the intention is nothing of the sort. The purpose is merely to illustrate a microcosm of the blogosphere, the history and dynamics of a once-prominent blog and its founder, without judgment, prejudice, hyperbole, vitriol or snark. We’ve attempted to present an unbiased story based on factual evidence, citing sources when necessary.
Some of the following is by necessity purely anecdotal and/or speculative; however, objectivity is the goal. We don’t intend for this monograph to be a comprehensive summary of the history of Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs, as it spans more than a decade. There’s just too much to cover in detail, so we’ve chosen to illustrate specific events – a general timeline with commentary.
This documentary was compiled over a span of months (indeed some of the referenced work goes back years) with the majority written prior to the untimely demise of Andrew Breitbart. Those sections where he is mentioned have not been rewritten to reflect his passing.
So with that out of the way, let’s take a curious trip down memory lane. –Ed.
