Charles Johnson: Without Twitter or Facebook, LGF would be no more

The days of LGF being a serious player in the blogosphere are long gone. These days, LGF is nothing more than a Leftist dime store version of Infowars. Charles spends most of his day on Twitter harassing people he disagrees with or getting them banned.

In a stunning admission of irrelevancy, Charles admits that without Twitter or Facebook, LGF would cease to exist.

LGF to Cease LGF to Cease2

How the mighty have fallen!

Update: Arachne calls BS on Charles’ claim that Twiter keeps LGF afloat.

  1. OLT's Both Roles At The Donkey Show says:

    HEY! Those Thai ladyboys aren’t going to sell themselves, you know!

    Erm, maybe I should rephrase that.

    • Octopus says:

      The thing is, they do sell themselves. Very boldly, with a lot of sassy salesmanship. I’ve seen them on the youtube, struttin’ their stuff. Even the ugly ones have more curb appeal than Chunky McDumbth’s sorry excuse of a blog, negatively enhanced by his lousy personality. I’m not into the whole, “Surprise, here’s a dick for ya!” kind of thing, but I guess enough people are to keep them in business.

  2. livefreeor die says:

    Maybe if you rely on Twitter you shouldn’t be such a douche nozzle to people on it and pick fights all the time.
    And just think what your situation would be like if you hadn’t cleared your blog of 16,000 supporters. Oh wait, they were all closet racists and stuff. I forgot.

  3. Well, there you have it.

    No wonder he gets so bent out of shape when we interact with his twitterers.

    • Daedalus says:

      This is a huge confession. Hey if you want to take a stab at Charles’ admission, do so.!

    • trebob says:

      Ding, ding, ding! Give that man a cigar!

      It’s why he runs from debate too, he can’t be discovered to be the intellectual midget that he truly is. That explains the 25 year old, -300 pound avatar too.

      It doesn’t matter if he acts like a insufferable dickweed, there are a lot of people who would follow someone who is a fool but acts like a pretentious fop. Dig how the citizens of Delaware treat Joe Biden for example.

      • Arachne says:

        Oh completely – he wants to give everyone the impression (from his avatar) that he’s some late-40’s hip jazz musician. In actuality, he’s a 61-year-old FAT shut-in who from the looks of it has no friends and no social life outside his home, which I imagine at this point smells like a landfill. All you need do is look at that ridiculous photo they used for the NYT article (Betsy used it as well). He looks like a chubby, slovenly walking mess. I took a loooong look at that photo, and I noticed from the way the t/shirt and overshirt “fell” that he had a very fat stomach protruding.

  4. Because says:

    He can’t afford to ignore twitter, therefore he has a right to control it? Is that the takeaway?

    • Arachne says:

      That’s pretty much it. His real problem is that he cannot control/ban/suspend those with intellect and erudition that enter his timeline when he makes his frequent stupid remarks. Look at his timeline sometime. This is not an intellectual exercise – it is a chat-room version of Neener Neener.

  5. trebob says:

    What happened to our tweet button?

  6. Arachne says:

    Oh please, that’s just bullshit of the first water. Twitter may have billions of users, but it’s your FOLLOWER count and retweets that matter. If you look at the retweets of his links, they aren’t all that high – and he does how many ICYMI’s to try to drive the traffic? And up until a month ago, when he injected himself into the other Charles Johnson and Jim Hoft reporting (because he doesn’t do anything like that himself), his follower count was way below 10,000 – and considering that he runs this supposed national blog, that’s not a lot of followers. Twitchy Team has been around 2 years, has less than 30K tweets, but 168K followers. An even better example is Weasel Zippers – 12K followers but only 34K tweets – only HALF the Johnson tweet total and with what – 1,000,000 hits a month? As far as I can tell, he is not getting PRIMO advertising – he’s getting the garbage. And does he even HAVE a Facebook page?

    He’s on Twitter for one reason and one reason only – to be an asshole to people and pick fights to get attention to himself. If his blog was any good at all, all he would need to do is what Weasel Zippers does – tweet out a link to the article. Period. And once you’ve established yourself you don’t need Twitter – you get the hits because people know to go to your site.

    In it’s heyday, without benefit of either Facebook or Twitter, how many hits did LGF get a month? Hundreds of thousands. How many NOW?

    I wanted to do an Alexa comparison of LGF versus Weasel Zippers, because in some respects the sites are similar. News aggregation and comment. And WZ is the younger site, and even ZIP admits he got the name from Ick-arus. I don’t know if anyone has the ability to do the comparison but it would be interesting.

    • Daedalus says:

      I updated the thread with your comments.

    • Because says:

      And that’s not even mentioning that the lgf banned Iowahawk just did the Mother of All Tweets a few days ago, with over 3800 RTs.

      I laugh on Chunk’s puny pony tail. Ha.

    • Captain Death says:

      Well said Arachne. The man has this pathological need to engage in twitter wars so he can “make his bones” with the Left- six years after he “broke with the Right”.

      • Arachne says:

        And it still isn’t working. No one thinks about him. Or references him. Or links him. No request for media appearances.

        And I still find it telling that as far as I know, no reference to that tribute album to his “dear friend” George Duke put together by his other “colleagues” Stanley Clarke and Al Jarreau. And I still wonder if he didn’t offer to be on the album and was told to take a hike.

      • Because says:

        Johnson making bones by slapping Johnson?

  7. Because says:

    I stand by my recommendation that he start his own little green version of twitter. He can call it “shitter”. Instead of a bird, his logo can be a turd.

  8. Arachne says:

    BTW Ick-arus, have you taken Think Progress to task for their false tweet about the Dallas health workers wearing no protective gear for two days? DID YOU?

  9. OLT's Chuck Doesn't Even Have Bewbs! says:

    Cowardly subtweeting coward:

    Looks like Babycakes has passed out after a long hard night of doxing Ebola victims. He’ll be back raving again at about 4 pm PDT.

  10. trebob says:

  11. trebob says:

    Pfft. My ICYMI tweet is awaiting moderation. I wanted excess!

  12. OLT's Chuck Doesn't Even Have Bewbs! says:

    Wow, Stalker Charles *really* wants into Chuck C’s tighty-whiteys, apparently.

    Will Greenwald be jealous?

    When did he give up girls? Did the police make him stop?

    • Arachne says:

      I see where he’s tweeted that Chuck C. Johnson got Vinson’s race wrong. Chuck’s issued a retraction and an apology. Contrast that, if you will, with Johnson’s speculation that Glenn Beck followers MURDERED a federal agent and no retraction once the facts were learned.

      In other words, shut the f**k up Ick-arus.

    • OLT's When Will They Ever Learn? says:

      I explained earlier, never trust a Johnson.

      • Because says:

        Yeah. The Evins may be rude, but the Johnsons are unpredictable. You definitely don’t want your Johnson wound up in the prop. That hurts.

        Or get a Honda, and don’t worry about rude evins, or obnoxious Johnsons.

        Or if you’re really into the kinky stuff, you can get an inboard/outboard.

  13. Al-Cheezeera says:

    I have never heard Charles Johnson say a single thing about Facebook, until today.

    • Arachne says:

      I checked Facebook – if he has a page, I can’t see it. The only page that references LGF has 302 likes. That’s not a lot.

    • Because yesterday's grits says:

      Does anybody still use Facebook?

      • Arachne says:

        Kids do for picture sharing and as a message board pretty much. The big thing now I think is Instagram (which is probably why Facebook bought it).

      • rightymouse says:

        My kids use Facebook. Mostly it’s used to keep in touch with each other since they all live in different states now. My hubby has an account & he uses it to snag pics of the grand-kids for me.

      • Arachne says:

        In Facebook, your “power” is based on your “like” count. Ick-arus would be very busy creating Facebook accounts to “like” him. Also, because he’s a thin-skinned asshole, he would have to approve everyone who tried to friend him so that an evil stalker doesn’t sneak on by to leave mean (i.e., honest) comments on his Wall.

      • rightymouse says:

        Arachne:

        Sounds dreadfully sophomoric, so in that sense it’s right up his alley. 🙂

    • OLT's When Will They Ever Learn? says:

      Maybe he has a little gardening page with Angry Black Lady, Shoq, and the rest of the Gulag reply-trap kidz.

      I like to think he does, and I like to think that Killgore is still welcome there, to raise slug-chewed kale, and assist with the intricacies of cooking salmon on a cedar plank.

      It’s a bucolic vision.

      Green grass, glistening slug trails, a garden path lined with festive lights made from Mountain Dew bottles filled with yellowish liquid and keyboard LEDs. A Cheetos bush (ok, a dead bush with Cheeto bags zip-tied to it) stands near the gate, and, in the distance, hefty lesbians mow suburban lawns in inappropriately-sized bikinis. In the air, the tweeting of garage-dwellers and the faint strains of soulless jazz-noodling.

      On Sunday afternoons, they all get together, drink tea, and discuss the weather.

      /sigh

  15. Arachne says:

    Uh oh….remember, Ick-arus when I said it’s not a good idea to go all-in on a narrative for which there is no hard ass facts? And remember when you snarked at Chuck Johnson for saying Ebola was carried via the air (he was saying “aerosol” but you insisted on terming it airborne).

    Well, well, well. Here’s a respected research organization that agrees with Chuck.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/14/CIDRAP-Confirms-Ebola-Transmittable-by-Air/

    “The highly respected Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota just advised the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) that “there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles,” including exhaled breath.”

    Personally, I hope Chuck tweets endlessly about your need to apologize for calling him a liar and a fear monger.

  16. doppel chins says:

    I’m getting a kick out of Betsy Rothstein discovering what a complete turd Charles is.

    he probably thought he would get noticed in a positive way and it’s wall to wall rumpswab as usual

    Charles you are such a loser!

    • Because says:

      He has a habit of that, doesn’t he? Remember how the Jonathan Dee thing went? 😆 😆

    • Pakimon says:

      Heh.

      Chuck C. apparently didn’t have any trouble getting out of the TwitterGulag… again.

      I wonder if “the powers that be” at Twitter grew weary of Chunky’s coy insinuations that he has a powerful say on whose accounts get suspended.

      After reading Chunky’s sniveling retorts to Betsy Rothstein’s tweets, I can picture them saying something like, “F**k that fat whimpering ponytailed turdnugget! Let’s unsuspend Chuck C.’s account and let them have at it.”

      If there was only one pile of shit in a hundred square mile radius, Chunky would still manage to step in it and track it all over Twitter. 😆

    • Arachne says:

      Oh, he’s sent out his little asswipes to foul the comments section screaming about what an asshole Chuck Johnson is. I spotted several who use the same avatars on their Twitter accounts. One said “if you look, MANY people asked he be suspended.” Really, and when asked if Spike Lee and Rosanne Barr were suspended, they were told “Google it.” Well, I took the little pinhead’s advice. They WEREN’T.

  17. doppel take says:

    this is what happens when you have dangerous fools like Charles Ebola-scientist Johnson tweeting that ebola cannot be spread by aerosol droplets. Some dummy strolls up to an ebola infected patient with no protective gear!

  18. Dudebro says:

    So being a typical freeloading liberal, chuckles admits that he NEEDS twitter, something he does NOT PAY for, yet twitter should cater to HIS personal whims. Ok, got it.

    • Because says:

      Yup. This is Chunky’s self image:

        But only temporarily, hence Chunky’s chronic peevishness.

        He’s been trying to get the Twitter banstick to take out Gus_80(insert number here,/em>) for over a year and he keeps coming back to taunt the bloated jazzy ponytail.

        Chunkles is stuck playing “Whack a Mole Stalker and it’s driving him berserk.

        But hey! I like watching him whine and snivel almost as much as watching football. 😀

      Barry – you have a post up referring to the fact that the CDC approved Obama’s sister flying to Cleveland even though she had a fever. And in your post, you state “This could be a problem.”

      Please enlighten us on this.

      You have already bent over backwards telling us how this disease is next to impossible to contract. You know – all of those blatherings you put forth on how this disease cannot be spread “in the air”.

      Please Barry – please tell us exactly why this is now a problem?

      Is it a political problem (you know – the ones that are so important to clueless douchebags like you) or is it actually something worse?

    Dear Fatass appears to be blissfully unaware of the number of air-related (and other) terrorist plots that have been uncovered and foiled since 9-11. In his dim, sick little mind, concern over Islamist terror is now akin to the racism that explains concern over the spread of Ebola. Both are what he considers “nontroversies,” a term which is accompanied in dictionaries of recent vintage with a pictorial depiction of a huge, greasy fat hippie flying through the air, after being blown up in a fireworks factory fire.

My habit was bad, nearing two packs a day, and the price had gone from 80 cents a pack to $1.75, overnight. It was like losing a really good friend at the time, or cutting off an arm. Made me sad. Nearly unapproachable, for about a week. My soon-to-be wife got so mad at me for being so grouchy, she offered to go buy me some Winston Lights, my drug of choice. Then, I horked up brown stuff for about 6-8 months, as the cilia came back to life. Took up running, which I was later able to quit thanks to shin-splints and creeping malaise. Never touched another cancer-stick. Yay, me!

Hansen was the Executive Director of the Environmental Grantmakers Association from 1998 to 2005. They have a daughter (aged 5 in 2014), Willa Hansen-Kohn and live in Brooklyn, New York.[8]”

        And gots the hots for a married woman. Something tells me Michelle wouldn’t reciprocate.

      • OLT's She Wasn't Elected says:

        Please tell Sally nothing drives me crazy about Michelle Obama except her disdain for our country.

        I don’t give a rat’s ass what she looks like, or eats, or wears, or does with her kids/pets/mother.

        I wish I could get the same respect from her, but I realize that every Lefty in the US is a Fascist at heart and I try to deal with that reality as best I can.

      • Arachne says:

        And every single reply in her timeline for this ridiculous tweet (at least when I looked at it) was essentially asking her (1) if she had a mentality beyond junior high or (2) if she shouldn’t be valuing “competence” when looking for leaders.

    It’s depressing me already, to think of the political onslaught of glurge coming our way. I might have to go live on an ashram for awhile, cut off from society. The RINOs and other assorted asshats that will accompany Shrillary on this endless slog are no consolation. UGH!

  53. Pakimon says:

    Never mind that it’ll be tossed into the “round file” as invalid since you pilfered the ballot from a neighbor’s mailbox.

    Not to mention it being illegible due to all chicken pot pie sauce smeared all over it.

    At least I hope that’s chicken pot pie sauce… 😆

    • OLT's Don't Read Here, Gus says:

      Good thing you’re not in the military, or the Democrats would go to court to throw it away.

    • Pakimon says:

      Maybe what he meant by “completed” is that he designed and made the ballot himself using the crayon he found in the corner of the garage.

      It’ll have two candidates on it.

      Chunkles for king of Colorado

      Gus for queen of Colorado.

      Dare to dream Gus! Dare to dream… 😆

      • Arachne says:

        Knowing Gus’s mental acuity, and that razor wit and keen political acumen. No doubt he went out in the to yard, found a leftover ballot from the high school prom that had blown into the back yard, saw that “king” and “queen” were on the ballot, wrote in himself and the Douchenozzle and mailed it off to the registrar.

      • Octopus says:

        That “crayon” that looked like the long-lost “Burnt Sienna” turned out to be something else. Still used it to fill out the ballot, though.

    • Because says:

      Mail in ballots require a postage stamp. That’s why he’s not going to mail it.

      • Arachne says:

        Really, Gus. Katrina was 9 years ago. And NO, asshole, we don’t. Unless you think Cheney steered the hurricane to NOLA. Because it was the DEMOCRAT Governor and the DEMOCRAT Mayor that (1) refused to request that Bush nationalize the National Guard (like the REPUBLICAN Governors and Mayors of the Gulf Coast did), which would have had them IN New Orleans at the time the storm hit and would therefore have been there when the levies broke; (2) refused to use the fleet of school buses to evacuate residents to higher ground in advance of of the storm, to Shreveport, Houston, etc., because he was literally demanding that Greyhound and Trailways bring buses to New Orleans. People were evacuating NOLA long before the levies broke.

        You can also blame the damn MEDIA, which was reporting constantly on the sniper fire and the lawlessness. Believe it or not, Scratchy, FEMA are NOT first responders. FEMA arrives after order is restored and begins the process of assisting with day to day living requirements. Also, FEMA is staffed with many volunteers and thanks to the media reports, it was deemed UNSAFE to bring FEMA workers into New Orleans until the violence had subsided. And NO, Bush did not go to New Orleans during the first three days because the entourage and safety precautions taken for even the shortest of Presidential visits would have hampered rescue and salvage efforts. Oh, and contrast this with your boy OBOLA, who did not visit the Gulf after Isaac, did not visit Nashville when it was as flooded as New Orleans, did not visit Joplin Missouri after that savage F5 cut through it and did not go to New Orleans for months after the BP spill.

        In other words, Scratchy, shut the eff up and drink some more sterno, you ignorant asshole. And come over here and challenge any of this. It’ll be easy. Take your head out of Chunky’s ass and ask permission.

    So Sally Kohn doesn’t like guys. Does she still like Johnson?

    Or maybe she has rejected the Johnson completely. Seems unlikely, but would have been a smart move.

    • Because says:

      Somebody needs to ‘splain to me why women who reject flesh Johnsons pay money for plastic ones. That’s one of those things that keeps thinkers up at night.

      Granted, the plastic ones are more hygienic. And they never run flat. And most of them will do things when you put batteries in them that meatspace Johnsons don’t.

    We are a first world country with effin Ebola because of Obola and the fat disgusting common sense denying prog pigs. There are countries in Africa that don’t even have Ebola. They are smart enough to close their borders like any sane nation would with a raging epidemic. If you are the U.S. President who lets Ebola in, you are automatically the worst President in history. Obola may have gone mad or has nefarious purposes, nothing he says or does makes sense.

      Let me tell you what I remember, you shiteating douchebag. I remember Don Francis of the CDC coming to San Francisco and begging Silverberg, head of the Dept. of Public Health, to close the bathhouses because they had discovered a link with blood and AIDS. I remember that other douchebag Silverberg putting it to an effing VOTE of the gays who screamed discrimination. So the baths stayed open. And AIDS spread. And guess who DIED, Scratchy? Hemophiliacs. From AIDS tainted blood donors.

      I remember Don Francis going to the blood banks and begging them to use the test for HEP-B on all blood donations because they were finding a link with AIDS and HEP-B. I remember the blood banks saying it was too expensive and they weren’t going to do it based on the deaths of a few dead hemophiliacs. I remember Don Francis getting so upset that he hollered out at the blood bank meeting “How many dead hemophiliacs do you need?”

    Itchy – you new friends at CBS are patently dumb. Check out this reporter who wants to know when Rand Paul, after commenting on Ebola, became a “doctor.”

    The answer, sweetie, would be 1993 (MD in 1988; residency completed in 1993). Oh, would she also like to know when Charles Krauthammer became a doctor?
