Since some of us are too busy with family get-togethers, vacations, beer-swilling and bounty hunting to go strawberry picking, here’s a fresh thread for critical analysis, stalking and mocking of Charles Johnson and his Little Green Fascists.
This tweet has must be coming from an alternate reality.
@hunterw Thank you for the nice words!

LGF is anything but thoughtful or nuanced. It’s a cheap leftist imitation copy of Alex Jones’ infowars.
Charles had to dig deep for this one. 18 days ago, Antonio French posted that Tweet with a picture of maybe four dozen rose petals in the middle of the street along the double yellow lines, claimed that a police car “trampled” them. Then a K-9 officer took his dog out there and instructed it to pee on the purported middle-of-the-street memorial to Michael Brown.
This was reported in a Mother Jones story that popped up today with an unconfirmed account (like that’s never happened) and Charles is all over it like skeeter assholes on a windshield.
Meanwhile, at least one sentient got through Charles’ Magical Jazzy Filter and called out the idiocy.
Good luck, 1Peter G1. See you soon.
On a daily basis, Charles posts or tweets racist or alleged racist comments from fringe figures on the right. When a major leftist makes offensive racial comments. the 61 year old corpulent blogger is silent. Harry Reid recently made anti-Asian remarks and the Race Detective did not condemn it.
Reid clumsily offered his assessment of the success and intelligence of business leaders of Asian descent at the gathering. “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” he babbled. You put those uppity Asians in their places, Hater Harry!
During a question-and-answer session, Reid followed up his jibe with a crude “joke” about Chinese surnames that would make Archie Bunker cringe: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
Good thing the pale-faced codger didn’t let a “ching chong” slip out, too. You know it was ringing around between his ears. Mocking Asian monikers is a hanging offense if you’re a Republican pol or conservative talk-show host. But it’s just a meaningless gaffe by “diversity’s” best friend when you’re Democratic Senate majority leader.
That’s why Reid’s hosts obliged with subdued tittering. National-news anchors selectively averted their gazes. The Asian American Journalists Association, so quick to issue sanctimonious guidelines for avoiding ethnic stereotypes, maintained radio silence. And the usual left-wing speech police who read racism into every word uttered by conservatives from “angry” to “Chicago” to “Constitution” to “Obamacare” saw and said nothing.
When it comes to progressive racism, the Race Detective is no where to be found.
The LGFers can’t make up their mind about their ideology. Sometimes, they claim to be socialists, other times they claim to be progressives, occasionally they claim to be Center-Right. Salon described LGF as a conservative blog. This prompted to Charles to let the author know that LGF is not a conservative blog.
@Green_Footballs I stand corrected. I won't make that mistake again. Thanks for the props.

For once Charles is being honest.
Aloutte believes eye glasses can restore a person’s vision
Aloutte needs to stick to her day job.
Bonus: This Charles Johnson worshiper claims LGF has never changed.
It seems Gus will have to cut out on tweeting becasue his knees hurt.
That’s some cramp space Gus is living in.
