Charles went all in on the fake UVA story. When the facts started to come out and it did not what the alleged victim claimed, Charles viciously attacked anyone questioning the story. Now that Rolling Stone has admitted the story was fake, Charles does a post on the matter without any apologies. In fact, he comments being fine with the story turning out wrong!
No apologies from Charles for contributing to the lie.
Five years after “breaking with the right” – Charles Fuckface Johnson still is looking to make his bones with the Left and be accepted as an honored member of the Stalinist blogosphere commune. Long after the Left had distanced itself from the likes of Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner, Charles still stood on that hill defending the little guy. Back in August, Charles finally figured out that throwing Israel under the bus might be the key to getting the love from the Left that he never got from his family and wrote a ridiculous thread excoriating Israel. However it was to no avail as the Left at best views him as a flake and at worst as a cynical opportunist. Now that the Rolling Stone false rape story by “Jackie” is disappearing faster than the Cheetos and Mountain Dew in Chunky’s pantry and refrigerator, the corpulent, double chinned loser is standing with “Jackie”. To Tubby the facts do not matter since everything to him has a political angle.

Charles Johnson: Innuendo Is Proof, Unsubstantiated Rumour is True, Unnamed Sources Equal ConfirmationPosted: February 23, 2014
A few days ago Charles tweeted this head-scratcher:
Nevermind that Johnson brags that he was a “co-founder” of PJM (although it was the late Andrew Breitbart who introduced him to Roger Simon’s group due to Johnson’s *ahem* work in exposing the Killian Documents fraud). It was an odd Tweet, posted without any link or other backup. Then today, three days later, this appears on LGF:
Huh. That’s one helluva vague accusation, so I clicked the link:
Check it out. Apparently the purpose of the 2012 “talking points” was to enhance negotiations between the Ukraine and the EU, and to squelch Russian control of local natural resources. Isn’t that what the current uprising is all about? We’ll see.
In any case, that Buzzfeed post went up on 16 July 2013 and describes an accusation by an anonymous source who alleged that in October 2012
Someone somewhere may have been offered $500 to post positive things about the Ukraine and may or may not have accepted it.
Wow. Guilt by innuendo? Pheew. That’s one helluva current scoop, Charles, especially because there is nothing in that article that proves PJM or anyone else accepted anything.
The big question is: How did Charles Johnson suddenly discover the Buzzfeed accusation, how does he benefit from posting vague unsubstantiated innuendo about his previous benefactors and allies, and who paid him to do so?
“All roads lead to Jazzy.” –Andrew Breitbart
We’ve had a few trolls from time to time, as does any blog, but in June 2011 we had two of the best. From LGF. With clever snark, it was one of the funniest troll threads on Diary of Daedalus, and it deserves a revisit.
We’ll not name names, but there was a back and forth tag team that produced some of the best spontaneous free-form prose we’ve seen. The duo who posted here made the erroneous assumption that the populace of Diary of Daedalus is an homogenous group, when in fact we have commenters with widely divergent political views, religious beliefs and nationalities. We’re a hodgepodge melting bucket of all stripes, here only to mock Charles Johnson, and that transcends, um, stuff.
So the two trolls assumed that we’re all gun-totin’ conservative cowboys, and they rolled with it. The story that resulted was interspersed with asides, shown here in brackets [—]. We culled out the best of the thread and included some of the lead-up intro. We haven’t edited for grammar, caps or spelling, and we left the line breaks in, too. Grab a quart of Pabst, git yer spurs on, and saddle up, because THIS was a hoot.
One of the neat things you can do with The World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine™ is stealthily plow through thousands of teh Johnson’s (or anyone’s) comments, looking for any keyword, phrase or quoted lizard that a creative thought might produce. And there’s kind of some interesting stuff in there. For example, type in “hatchling” (their term for a new user account), and you’re whisked back to a time long past, when registration windows were announced, and netizens poured through the gates like Black Friday at Walmart.
These days, @Lizardoid has a pretty tough time getting folks to sign up, announcement or not. In fact, the search revealed that CJ hasn’t mentioned “hatchlings” in the comments section in almost a year.
As a visual aid, engineer no. 5 once compiled a neat graph:
What’s probably more pathetic is that the vast majority of those who had signed up in recent years don’t appear to have stuck around very long. Were they all socks?
…since I have it on my screen, let’s take a peek at those lists that Johnson used to post, and you guys can tell me how many really would up being active participants:
Those of us who have been around this corner of the blogosphere for a while can’t help but see the irony in the fact that LGFers are now compelled to explain the “deal with Fjordman“, given the (formerly) anonymous blogger’s long and storied history on that very site. For years, Fjordman was one of the most revered contributors to LGF. But today, a casual visitor would have no idea because a) most (if not all) of the threads regarding Fjordman’s essays have been scrubbed from the archives and b) for the remaining threads, the comment sections for anything pre-2009 are blocked from unregistered readers.
Johnson’s efforts to hide old threads like this go even further, as even the Wayback Machine has been blocked. This means that all of the internet archive links in our previous “rescued from memory hole” features are no longer valid.
So, in light of recent developments, and because we can see that Charles is whitewashing quite a bit, The Boiler Room has decided to release the complete content of one of these missing Fjordman threads that the engineers managed to save before everything got nuked (all urls in the comments section still have the archive prefixes; however, for the main body, I took the trouble to update those links, and they are still live):
3/2/2005: Scandinavian Rape Epidemic
Fjordman has a detailed look at a serious problem in Scandinavia, getting worse because political correctness dictates it must be ignored: Muslim Rape Epidemic in Sweden and Norway – Authorities Look the Other Way.
Numbers released in January 2005 indicate a sharp rise in the number of rape charges in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city:
Thomas Anderberg, responsible for statistics at the Malmo Police, says there was a doubling of the number of reported rapes by ambush in 2004, following what was already a decade of steadily increasing numbers of sexual crimes. – I think that’s great news, says Anna Gustafsson, head of the Domestic Violence Unit at the Malmo Police. She suggests that the increase is due to the fact that women who otherwise wouldn’t press charges for rape now choose to contact the police.
In other words, Gustafsson claims that we are dealing with a “technical” increase, not a real one. However, national statistics reveal that reported rapes against children have almost doubled in Sweden during the past ten years:
According to Swedish Radio on Tuesday, statistics from Sweden’s National Council for Crime Prevention show that the number of reported rapes against children is on the rise. The figures have nearly doubled in the last ten years: 467 rapes against children under the age of 15 were reported in 2004 compared with 258 in 1995. Legal proceedings continue this week in a case involving a 13 year old girl from Motala who was said to have been subjected to a group rape by four men. (Note: These four men were Kurdish Muslims, who raped the girl for hours and even took photos of doing so.)
The number of rape charges per capita in Malmo is 5 — 6 times that of Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen is a larger city, but the percentage of immigrants is much lower. And it’s not just the rape statistics that reveal a scary increase in Malmo or Sweden. Virtually every kind of violent crime is on the rise. Robberies have increased with 50 % in Malmo only during the fall of 2004. Threats against witnesses in Swedish court cases have quadrupled between 2000 and 2003. During the past few decades, massive immigration has changed the face of Sweden’s major cities, as well as challenged the viability of the welfare state. In 1970 Sweden had the fourth highest GDP per capita among developed countries with income about 6% above the OECD average. By 1997 it was at fifteenth place with an average GDP per capita 14% below average. Malmo has a heavy concentration of Muslim immigrants in particular. According to some estimates, it will be a Muslim majority city in no more then 10 years.
UPDATE at 3/2/05 5:12:41 pm:
Reinforcing and underlining the point I made at the start of this entry, Radley Balko thinks we shouldn’t even be discussing this subject; simply bringing it up is enough to prompt him to make idiotic comparisons of LGF and Stormfront (a white supremacist hate site), with no attempt whatsoever to address the facts: Timeless Themes.

Charles Johnson has been toggling recently. He’s been flipping a switch, blocking and unblocking archived comments on an irregular basis.
Why he’s doing it is anyone’s guess, but it seems to The Boiler Room Crew that he’s testing the waters for a full-blown vaporization of millions of pre-2008 comments from his website, not only erasing his own history, but the history of many others. That he’s poised to evaporate millions of comments is not an exaggeration, either. There’s no question that Mr. Lizard is expending a lot of time and trouble on this.
It has also been confirmed that he’s blocking entire regions from accessing LGF archives. Why would he do this? I’ll tell you. He’s scared and paranoid for what he and his loyal lizards posted back then when they were credible, when they made a difference, before the purge of the sentients.
Check this out. Here’s a recent roster of the current LGF Saints and Sinners. It’s a long list, so it continues below the break.
