Umm….Incoming! [UPDATED]Posted: April 16, 2014
I don’t think anyone here would’ve expected that our fun little blog get a tweeted link from a recent Polk and Pulitzer awarded journalist anytime soon, but that just happened.
And even though Greenwald’s tweet doesn’t make mention of LGF or Johnson specifically, CJ -ear to the ground and extremely reactionary when it comes to “Mighty Glenn”- of course assumes that it is meant as a direct shot across the bow, and…. immediately loses his shit:
The thread includes a nice rant, featuring anecdotes about Barrett Brown, George Duke, Serbians and Muslims, Pam Geller, and Timothy McVeigh!
But as we’ve seen as of late, Johnson’s true passion when it comes to flinging poo across the ‘webs is within the domain of the twitterverse:
UPDATE I: Yes the graphic in question (originally seen on DoD here) was a “corrected” version of the original ThinkProgress version, as we felt that TP had omitted LGF’s presence in the Breivik manifesto based (presumably) on Johnson’s turnaround. The LGF references are most definitely in the manifesto.
UPDATE II: Anyone may confirm the stats in the graphic by downloading Brevik’s Manifesto, scraping it into MSWord, then doing a simple search/replace for the phrases “Little Green Footballs,” “LGF,” and “Charles Johnson,” and tallying the numbers. We did exactly that.
Regarding The Last Gasp Charles Magical Ponytail Johnson Defense, here’s the full story from Daedalus, who was there.
