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.

    Did He Who Has His Own Zip Code engage in any legal pontificating upon the acquittal of Edward Nero in a bench trial over the death of drug dealer Freddie Gray? Or is the fact that the man’s last name is “Nero” causing Fatso to have frontal lobe fits that prevent him from commenting on it.

These people will believe anything from someone who sounds like an authority. All this technology and knowledge at our fingertips means nothing. People are just as ignorant as ever.

Probably has packed on at least another 100 lbs. since he isn’t all that active. And at our age (yes Chuck, we’re the same age), you have to be vigilant to keep the pounds off. If you look at that one video of him in the Hawaiian shirt, you can see that Chuck’s prone to weight gain. But he used to ride a bike that helped keep the poundage off – now he sits in his little hovel Googling himself and not taking his eyes off the screen.

            So he went out to dinner for four hours? Is that what he’s claiming? I call foul – he probably got stuck on the john and that’s how long it took the Culver City Fire Department to extricate him.

    After a grueling day of drinking delicious wine all over Napa yesterday, we retraced the Donner Party’s path from the Donner Pass/Donner Lake Fun Zone through the salt flats “shortcut” that really fucked them over on the way to their winter hideaway. The whole trip from Donner Lake to the other side of the salty desert took us about an hour and a half. Took the wagon train a bit longer. Travel is easier now.

    • rightymouse says:

      I think it’s amazing how brave, curious, determined, wild & woolly the people were who opened up the west.

      • Octopus says:

        They were incredibly brave and hardy. Looking at that mountain pass today, which had a bit of snow and low-hanging cloud cover this morning, in late-May, I had bad flashbacks to the documentary which showed the Donner Party’s desperate attempts to cross over in late-fall/early winter. And then the long, long trip across the salt flats, which they decided to tackle in the summer on the way over. Bad move. Nothing out there but hardened salt, for nearly a hundred miles. They lost most of their oxen and provisions out there.

        • rightymouse says:

          I admire them because I’m not sure I would have been a very good travel companion. They made it and the West blossomed. European stock created the incredible progress and opportunity here since the 1600’s. Yes, Asians and African folk were here too later on, but the European immigrants paved the way. Our infantilization of American Indians is pretty awful, though. But had the first Virginia settlers and the Mayflower folks encountered a developed culture on the same par as the one they left, perhaps things would have been different.

          • Octopus says:

            You would have provided the menfolk with many hearty meals, and helped pull the cart after the oxen fell. Probably scalped your share of wild Indians, too, if they tried to pull any shit. 😉

    Colonel Allen West Talks About Black Lives Matter

    by Alex Nitzberg on May 24, 2016

    The Black Lives Matter movement is a tool used by the left to maintain their “…90 percent plus hold on the black political electorate,” according to Colonel Allen West.

    “I think that their whole existence is just a liberal progressive socialist movement to make sure that they keep the black community on the 21st century economic plantation that’s been created by the left.”

    While the organization purports to protest societal discrimination and violence against black Americans, Colonel West exposed the movement’s hypocrisy by noting its profound silence on a multitude of issues wreaking havoc in black communities.

    “If it really was about black lives mattering, then they would be in Chicago, they would be at many of the inner cities, they would be talking about better education opportunities, they would be talking about the fact that since Roe versus Wade there have been 13 to 15 million black children who have lost their lives, been killed.”

    Colonel West also said that Black Lives Matter ignores other significant problems including the demise of the black family unit and the necessity of a strong economy to support business opportunities for black citizens.

    In his estimation, Black Lives Matter’s politically motivated determination of which lives matter and its complete failure to discuss crucial issues delegitimize the organization.

    Employing an expression popularized by Vladimir Lenin, Colonel West identifies Black Lives Matter protestors as “useful idiots,” describing an activist involved in a recent incident as “…nothing more than a progressive socialist political pawn in an insidious game of distracting the black community from the failures of progressive socialism and its horrific adverse effects.”

    When asked what person or group is pulling the strings to manipulate these “useful idiots,” he advised, “…follow the money…it’s coming from the far left progressive movement.”

    James Simpson did just that in AIM’s report, “Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter.” The report includes details about the complex web of organizations involved in funding Black Lives Matter.

    Colonel West believes that while the left’s protest movements change their name and shift their focus over time, they remain fundamentally the same: He avers that Black Lives Matter is “…another iteration of what we saw with Occupy Wall Street and it’ll morph itself into something else in the next political cycle.”

    He also says this, commenting on art freedom.

    “Imagine if at the time that rap was starting off that the government had said ‘no because some of the things you say are offensive or some of the lyrics are rude or you’re cursing too much,’” Obama said in reply to a question from Suboi, 26.

    “That connection that we’ve seen now in hip-hop culture around the world wouldn’t exist. So you’ve got to let people express themselves. That’s part of what a modern 21st-century culture is all about,” Obama said.

    That’s his example of freedom of art? Rap and hip hop is mostly about thuggery, coarseness, greed, amorality, lewdness, self-aggrandizement and self-absorption. Can someone point out to me how hip-hop culture has helped the world except to enrich a few narcissistic idiots in the entertainment world and the leaches that profit off of them? Might as well sing the praises of Punk Rock too. Oh wait, that’s white people.

I quit smoking the day after I graduated, and was very impressed by how much clearer my thinking and memory became in the next few weeks. Aside from a couple drunken tokes here and there, I’ve never gone back to it. My friends who smoke say today’s weed is a whole different animal. Judging by the near-total lack of drive and ambition among so many young folks today, I tend to believe it. Maybe I shouldn’t judge.

    Because, as writers, we are particularly aware of the many ways that language can be abused in the name of power;

    Because we believe that any democracy worthy of the name rests on pluralism, welcomes principled disagreement, and achieves consensus through reasoned debate;

    Because American history, despite periods of nativism and bigotry, has from the first been a grand experiment in bringing people of different backgrounds together, not pitting them against one another;

    Because the history of dictatorship is the history of manipulation and division, demagoguery and lies;

    Because the search for justice is predicated on a respect for the truth;

    Because we believe that knowledge, experience, flexibility, and historical awareness are indispensable in a leader;

    Because neither wealth nor celebrity qualifies anyone to speak for the United States, to lead its military, to maintain its alliances, or to represent its people;

    Because the rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression among his followers, shouts down opponents, intimidates dissenters, and denigrates women and minorities, demands, from each of us, an immediate and forceful response;

    For all these reasons, we, the undersigned, as a matter of conscience, oppose, unequivocally, the candidacy of Donald J. Trump for the Presidency of the United States.

      The funniest part of this whole silly “Why I Parted Ways”-style screed is the fact that these pompous old bastards would ever doubt that we all knew they were supporting whichever screechy, incompetent old bat the Dhimmis threw out there. Good grief. 😆

      • rightymouse says:

        We both pegged this crap as pompous. 🙂 Their arrogance is truly amazing.

        • Octopus says:

          Along with pompous, I would have to add absurdist, ‘Mouse. Bordering on dangerously delusional. To think I spent so many of the formative years of my intellectual life being groomed to think like a socialist ninnymuggins, by people like these pretenders. The horror. The…horror. 😆

          Looking forward to a concise reply to this glurge by one of the rational adult writers I’ve come to admire in the past decade or so, like Klavan, Whittle, Hanson, Steyn, etc. Let the pros handle the professional apologists for Dhimmi Daycare.

          Currently reading “A Spy Among Friends,” by Ben MacIntyre, about the Communist spy Kim Philby. It’s an amazing book, very fast-moving and fascinating. To think a whole generation of intellectuals got sucked in by Marxist theory, to the point many of them became traitors to their countries and dyed-in-the-wool Reds. To think the sordid, rotten legacy of those misguided people is still being passed off in civilized countries as compassionate virtue politics, still promising to take the money away from the greedy rich and redistribute it to the proletariat. Sanders is immensely popular with the kids, like Obama. It’s disheartening.

            Don’t get me started on communism. The rise of socialism here is truly scary. I saw so much death and destruction in SE Asia it still makes me sick.

    What a pile of pompous crap. King and his ilk can bloviate all they want, but what will they do when Trump becomes President? Cry? Build safe rooms for themselves? Blech. Babies, the lot of them.

  37. Octopus says:

    You keep saying that, Fatass. Why are you so obsessed with the screeching harridan’s frumpy legs? Because they resemble your own, perhaps?

    How does he manage to carry that massive cross everyday, with the Romans whipping him unmercifully?

    Hillary is in deep shit.

      I think rush is right. Obama hates her guts, and wants to stab her in the back while not being too obvious about it.

      • Octopus says:

        It will be very interesting to see how the Clinton-Obama endgame plays out. I sense powerful forces at work, trying to influence the high-stakes legal issues.
