On 18 September 2009 Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs Thread-Bombed Hot Air To Expose Racism By Planting Racism.Posted: September 18, 2014
It’s been 5 years since Charles Johnson’s inebriated operative Killgore Trout blasted full bore into the internest with his infamous Midnight Run / astroturf / thread bomb heard ’round the blogosphere. Killgore Trout’s point was to illustrate that the owners of Hot Air don’t moderate comments while asleep, and therefore the moderators are Racists. Charles defended Killgore Trout’s blatant dishonesty and protected his racism, including the following comment:
“I hate niggers and space monkeys.”
No one on Hot Air that night agreed with Killgore’s racist comments, and when Charles Johnson found out about it the following day, he played his classic “Yes But” card. He didn’t approve, yet he did. Charles declared that Hot Air is racist because Killgore’s racist comments weren’t deleted within an arbitrary time-span dictated by Charles Johnson on a blog he didn’t own and doesn’t control.
Pure straw man argument.
