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.
On 15 April 2001 Charles Johnson claimed to be a victim of Islamic Extremism and he lived to tell about it.Posted: June 20, 2017
Off by only a month, Charles Johnson claimed credit for spotting local jihadists. He knew what was coming down because his followers told him so, and Johnson always takes the credit for the work of others.
Johnson’s anecdote precedes the horrors of 911 by five months, yet his antennae were already twitching. At the time of the post, Little Green Footballs had little to do with politics (let alone islamic jihad) and a lot to do with bicycling and low-end computer programming. Back then, few people knew or cared who he was, kinda like now.
On the other hand, Charles Johnson has been shown to manipulate and edit his posts after-the-fact, so it’s possible that he changed the posting date to make it appear he was prescient. I don’t think that’s the case here – He was spooked by the event. Johnson was 48 years old at time of posting, old enough to figure it out.
The screencap is not the product of The Official BRC Nil Stooge Template, it’s what the LGF cached post looks like today, with the new FatBody LGF Logo, Twitter links, and an appropriately round, decade-old image of Charles Foster Johnson.
Charles F. Johnson:
My, how times have changed.
Fetched from the RetroBin:
A few years later (2009) Jihad Watch posted this:
I first encountered Aziz Poonawalla during my dialogue of the deaf with the spitting, sputtering hateblogger Dean Esmay, as Poonawalla was and may still be a contributor to his blog. Poonawalla and I also have had several unpleasant exchanges, during which — as you can see if you read them — he didn’t demonstrate an overwhelming commitment of honesty or integrity. —Robert Spencer
Aziz Poonawalla is an anti-semitic muslim propagandist who’s been at it for a while, but that was then and this is now, at least according to Charles Johnson, and something happened. Now they’re best buds. Read the rest of this entry »
Wow. Now Charles Johnson is going after The Gray Lady, aka, The New York Times. Never mind that the NYT states the obvious, that people all over the world are fed up with squishy politicos who allow islamic terrorism to proliferate by rolling their eyes and saying “Can’t we all just get along?” or “We’re all for diversity, no matter the cost,” or more often, “Fuck it. We’re caving.”
Terrorists are essentially cowards, yet they’re still dangerous. The political left seems to think that giving them RC Cola and Little Debbie snack cakes will get them to the poker table, while the political right knows that an enemy won’t negotiate until he’s shoved face down into the sandbox and forced to eat worms.
So, Charles. Would you rather hug a jihadist or make him eat worms? If you’d rather pass on embarrassing yourself, we’ll provide one or more of your archived answers and repost them for you.
[Hint: It’s round on the ends and high in the middle.]
Charles, once a staunch supporter of the State of Israel, sees no big deal in giving $400 million to Iran. He gets mad at conservative criticisms of this abomination.
Right wing bloggers ranting about a $400M “ransom payment” (it wasn’t) are doing exactly what Iran wants.
