Yeah, we all saw it coming, Charles @Green_Footballs Johnson. We also saw how you abused the Twitter protocols, and how you deleted all contents from your dormant @Lizardoid account. We also know why you did so. How ’bout reposting some of the vile stuff that appeared on your account, explain why you deleted it, and justify why it’s still open, Charles?
Two-faced unapologetic slime.
Truth is, Charles Johnson hooked up with Neil Rauhauser, inventor of the Bean Dogs, automated bots created to attack right-wingers by swarming Twitter feeds. Andrew Breitbart didn’t create or promote any of it, but he exposed the practice, as did Mandy Nagy. Neither Breitbart nor Nagy “pioneered this method,” but Charles Johnson promoted it and participated in it by his own admission. (Those admissions can be found under his previous Twitter moniker “@lizardoid” but the content was swept clean long ago.)
Breitbart can’t defend himself because he’s dead, and Mandy Nagy is incapacitated due to a massive stroke she suffered years ago.
Charles, you’re a lying coward.
I took a stroll over to The Mothership this afternoon and found that she was down for unknown reasons. Thinking that my FireFox bookmarks might be corrupted due to the recent upgrade, I googled The Blogmocracy and clicked that link. No dice.
Instead I found an amusing blast from the past by Robert Stacy McCain in 2012. Down in the comments, “Jacobus” posted a link to this:
The last phrase in that self-description says a lot.
So 33-year-old Magical Jazzy played with Chicago in 1986? News to me, so I searched the BRC Archives. He never once mentioned the band, and he’s not listed anywhere in their lineups. Go figger.
Nice catch, Charles.
Military Strategist Charles Johnson Opines on Afghanistan Strategy: Let’s Get Out and Let the REAL Bloodshed Begin.Posted: August 24, 2017
One upding on teh ignancy. Cool.
Charles F. Johnson is now a self-proclaimed military strategist who is regularly included in convo with the CIC and the JCS and apparently believes that the US Military takes high-school grads and ships them to killing fields in the outskirts of Kabul. Never mind that Johnson can’t locate Kabul on a map and believes that Afghanistan is one great poppy field that leads to the Emerald City in the Land of Oz, complete with flying monkeys and a little green witch who sold coffee in the 70s.
Charles. This is about exterminating Islamo-Facists who want to kill you, us and others, and to do it as far away from Culver City California as possible. (If you don’t believe it, see how long your Magical Jazzy Ponytail lasts in Ryahdh.)
Meanwhile, Charles Johnson threw this unedited comment down the Memory Hole a long while ago under this awesome graphic header:

It’s a bit more complicated than that. For all practical purposes, Bin Laden is the Taliban; he financed their government to the tune of $100 million, and used their country as a training ground for terrorist attacks. It’s a very clear example of a nation that supports and harbors terrorists.
And McElvoy makes this point as well:
Action against Afghanistan is a necessary pre-condition of a wider campaign against terrorism.
“Action against Afghanistan is a necessary pre-condition of a wider campaign against terrorism.” – Charles F. Johnson 7 November 2001
Yep. There’s the nut.

Wow. Not only did Johnson label/libel Sheriff Paul Babeu as a racist, he attempted (and failed) to brand Sen. John McCain one as well just for talking with him. Here’s Johnson’s proof – A post from Media Matters that sources the Southern Poverty Law Center [cached]:
Here’s the link to the YouTube video featuring both Sheriff Babeu and Senator McCain:
Funny how some things from years ago are just as relevant today, unlike Charles Johnson. (BTW, the author of that MM piece, Eric Hananoki, was a staffer for The [defunct] Al Franken Show. Go figger).
Two years later Johnson was still at it, and Daedalus posted about it here.
Charles, you’re a mess.
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.
