Not sure how we missed this gem from someone named “Jummy” but he posted an excellent analysis of Charles Johnson’s persona and actions (post Oslo Massacre) on a blog forum 30 July 2011. Here it is in its unedited entirety. -Briareus
Charles Johnson: Unrepentant Bigot Hides from Oslo Culpability Behind a Pointed Finger
it may be that geller and spenser and fjordman and the rest are corrosive people trading on bigotry. there are many people who knew that at first glance. perhaps the ability to see these people for who they are at first sight is a better benchmark for clearsightedness than the ability to hate them in suspiciously lugubrious terms only after plucking them from obscurity, establishing their blogging careers, and supporting them for nearly a decade.
it’s not absolutely clear that johnson “came to his senses”. rather, it appears more likely that johnson was offended that geller and spenser had challenged his authority. there was no disagreement on any of the themes which would later comprise breivik’s manifesto, only on who geller and spenser should disinvite to the brussels conference vlamms belang was to participate in.
Gus has a thang going on and somehow he’s Tweeted to thousands, follows thousands, and thousands follow him since he joined Twitter in January 2011. Let’s break this down.
Let’s assume Gus joined Twitter on 31 January 2011. Between that date and 17 July 2017, Gus posted 449,000 Tweets according to his own Twitter Account. That’s about 2,490 days according to this calculator.
Now let’s run the math. 450k Tweets / 2,490 days = 180 Tweets per Day. Assuming a 4 hour Twitterday, that works out to an astounding rate of approximately 45 Tweets per hour average, and it includes the two times he claimed to have quit Twitter.
If Gus is indeed following 3,450 as his Twitterfeed claims, that means he’s reading over 860 Tweets Per Hour. Dude’s amazing.
It’s no secret that Gus is unemployed. He turned down three legitimate offers, and this blog offered to help him out with his medical expenses via a PayPal account. He declined all assistance and chose to gripe instead. So what are those little retweeted things on the lower left of his Twitter homepage? I dunno, Babs, but I do know this. Gus seems to take pride in it.
Gusano, you’re almost as entertaining as Charles Johnson.
Recently we posted a graphic from web ranking site Alexa that shows Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs in steady and predictable decline. Today we realized that Alexa’s graph was a bit skewed for unknown reasons.
There is some oddness in that graph that we didn’t spot until today. The rows are not equal. They should be the the same between
<50k – 100k
<100k – 150k
<150k – 200k
<200k – 250k
but they’re not. Maybe it softens the blow to Johnson’s ego, but it’s not accurate. Here’s what we posted:
Here’s the same Alexa graph with the rows adjusted:
Don’t see it yet? How about a throbbing Alexa Graph?
What does this mean? It means that Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is tanking faster than even Alexa is willing to admit.
Rock on, Charles. We love ya, man.
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs got a spike in popularity a few months ago for unknown reasons, but it was short-lived. Might have been an echo from the POTUS inauguration, but that was then and this is this.
What happened after the spike in traffic in late January, and the crash of late May? Was it a self-promotion gimmick that kept it level for three months? I suppose it doesn’t matter, because Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is still on the predictable trajectory despite the graphic plateau. LGF fell off the mesa and is heading for The Mojave.
Last time we checked, LGF had a global rank of 168,689 and a US rank of 50,248. Rock on, Charles. You’re awesome.
Took a quick wade through The Swamp this afternoon, and there’s no “traditional July 4th open thread,” so let’s set The WayBack Machine to the Year of Our Lord 2011 and see what Our Hero was talking about.
Who’s up for some BBQ?
Marinate it overnight, then slather it in Barbie Sauce and throw it on the grill. Better yet, get someone else to cook it up for you, Charles, because you don’t barbecue fish.
We’ve seen his amazing photography before and this was one of the best of his banal and uninteresting collection. I rotated it to see if it might be more interesting, and when I did, I noticed that it’s missing some things – like fasteners, a hasp, and it’s not located on the wooden gate hinge point. That piece of hardware does nothing, and it hasn’t for years according to the rust stains because it’s been laying flat on someone’s porch deck for a while.
On the other hand, if you squint, it looks just like Charles Johnson’s brain.
