Curious Lurker reminisces about the old LGF

With the descent of LGF into an obscure blog full of unemployed losers, it’s hard to believe there was a time it was a powerhouse. 10 years ago at this time, LGF was a premier news aggregation website and one with political influence. That was the due to the diverse collection of commentators and views. Charles embarked on a purge in the hopes of gaining acceptance from progressives. Today he is viewed as a clown on Twitter and gets nothing but ridicule.

LGF’s resident Islamist, Curious Lurker condems any thought of LGF being better in the past.

Even Shaun King ignores the fat shut in

Charles tried to provoke the white black guy, Shaun King. Like other Twitter personalities, King ignored the obese leech.

Had Shaun King and Charles gone at it, they both would lose.


Charles Johnson & LGF Can’t Decide Who The Bigots / Racists / Anti-Semites Are.

Charles Johnson’s Flying Monkeys are all over the map after the recent rally disruptions (by hired professional rally disrupters) at Trump’s disrupted rallies in Albuquerque and Anaheim. Seems they can’t figure out the difference between law-abiding citizens cheering a political candidate and loudmouthed racist a-holes pushing for another Kent State Incident.

No Racism At LGF 1

Got that? But what’s an LGF FosterClock™ without a cheapshot swipe at the Catholic Church?

No Racism At LGF 2

In Johnson’s defense, at least he and his Little Green Minions loudly denounced the racist bigots who attacked a gay journalist at DePaul University. Oh wait…


Charley J. on Hillary C.

In 2007, Charles Johnson was all over the 2008 Presidential campaign, cranking out posts like a kindergartner on a 3-day glucose bender with a mouth full of wheat paste and safety scissors. Everyone breathlessly awaited each brilliant assessment of the candidates, and we weren’t disappointed.

The second “Update” was a headline lifted verbatim from HotAir & Allahpundit:

The CNN YouTube freak show debate; Update: Private jet show of hands video added; Update: Biden tells gun owner he “needs help”; Update: I’ll meet with Castro, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, says Obama

Charles Johnson blocked thread comments from public view on that post a long time ago, but the BRC has ways of resurrecting his hidden/memory-holed files. There was only one comment out of 510 posted by Charles Johnson on that thread, and here it is:

Comment 350

A couple months later, Johnson posted this:

Comment 466

Here’s the YouTube video, as appropriate today as it was in 2007.

“There’s medical evidence that Hillary Clinton is a man.” That’s a bit of a stretch, but apparently Johnson found it credible and linked to it anyway. One year later, the metamorphosis was complete:

Comment 652

Apparently Charles IS down with this:

That’s former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau on the left, and he thinks Donald Trump is “gross.”

Keep it real, Charles. Can’t wait until you jump on the Bernie bus and blow out the rear tires.

Bonus: A Gates of Vienna commenter “flabslab” had some fun things to say about Charles’ “Nirth Certifikit” post here: “Charles Johnson Finally Reveals his Fascist Soul.”


Charles continues war with Bernie Bros

Charles tweets out his dislike of Matt Bruenig, a pro Sanders blogger who was recently fired for a Twitter exchange with a Clintonista. Having decided to be part of the Clinton campaign, Charles attacks Bruenig.

 

 

 

 

Charles can’t stand any dissenting views.


Such eloquent debating skills
