Charles Johnson Seems To Be Seemingly Awesome (or so it seems).

That seems to be some serious Johnson babble fodder above.

Charles seems to be seeming to say something seemingly brilliant, but it also seems that he’s only seeming to say so. Seems to me that that (((huggy))) response tweet seems just like something someone would say whose initials are “Charles Johnson.”

Charles, please seem to be sentient.

Killgore’s Midnight Run & Charles Johnson’s Foray Into Astroturfing: 10th Anniversary

The following is a repost from 18 September 2016.

There he goes again, fighting a dead man.

Andrew Breitbart enhanced Charles Johnson’s blogging career by introducing him to the players who in turn promoted Little Green Footballs and escorted Johnson into the Big Tent with fanfare. Instead of walking away with dignity, Charles chose the path of the pissant. Not only did he shun his former mentors, he turned on them, created and promoted lies, reposted invented unsubstantiated claims, and astroturfed his benefactors. Then, like a true coward, he still plays the victim when others call him on his own hypocrisy.

On 13 September 2016, Charles tried once again to erase his own history of astroturfing, but let’s roll back the clock to 18 September 2009.

Seven years ago today The Flying Monkeys of Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs began an astroturf campaign against HotAir. With no evidence to back up Johnson’s accusation that HotAir was a racist website, LGF operative Killgore Trout paid them a visit while the moderators were asleep and provided the “evidence” himself by posting offensive racial comments and daring the moderators to delete them… beginning at 12:34AM and running to 2:01AM. You can read the full diatribe here, but here’s a snippet:

Killgore Rant Condensed

Killgore’s Midnight Run set a precedent for Little Green Footballs that was recognized throughout the political blogosphere, and the running joke was that if racist comments showed up on someone’s website it was due to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs.

Charles Johnson continuously accused Breitbart and others of not policing comments on their websites. Little Green Footballs typically garnered a couple of hundred comments, and Charles employed volunteer “Monitor Lizards” to do it for him. Breitbart’s “Big Journalism” had well over ten times the number of comments per post than Little Green Footballs, so it was impractical to expend the effort to review and/or edit all of them.

And Johnson’s astroturfing didn’t stop there.

Johnson holds the 2 of Clubs and four Post-It Notes, then claims he has 5 of a kind. The first liar never has a chance, Charles.

Click it, Charles.


The 1979 Johnson vs. The 2019 Johnson

The Pages’ “Do I Believe In You” made No. 84 on Billboard’s Top 100 Singles list in 1979. Charles didn’t last long with that band either, and his levis look very uncomfortable. That might explain something.

The Little Green Footballs Wiki page has been edited from the last time I perused it, and now includes these links:

Allegations of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment

  • R. J. Smith, writing in Los Angeles Magazine, stated that LGF is a “dysfunctional mix of beautiful photos Johnson takes on coastal bike rides and constitutionally protected hate speech” which “believes all Muslims are terrorists until proven innocent.”[56]
  • Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) called Little Green Footballs “a vicious, anti-Muslim hate site” and says that the FBI has “investigated several threats of physical harm against Muslims posted by Little Green Footballs readers”.[3]
  • Columnist Antonia Zerbisias has described LGF as a “virulently anti-Muslim/Arab website”.[57]

“It’s like somebody got to him” —Andrew Breitbart

Any guesses on who knocked on Charles’ kitchen door at 3AM? Nah. Didn’t think so.


In Charles’ World, The Sky Is Johnson.

C’mon, Icaroid. Who’s paying you to post teh stoopid?

 


TSIAFU – The Tao of Charles Johnson

Since not all of his lizardlappers follow him on Twitter, Charles made sure they saw his brilliant insightful comment by reposting it on Little Green Footboils. But what does it mean?

I don’t know, Babs, but I do know this. It’s time to poll the audience.

Have at it.

 

 


Tweets From Someone Who Is Definitely “not in a blog war with anyone”

From the Department of Never Before Posted Archives:


It’s been almost a year since we saw this:

Of course, the reason we do a lot of “screen-shotting” is because Charles has a tendency to make stuff disappear, perhaps more so than any other blogger on the web…

In any case, between then and now, we’ve seen the self-identified blog pacifist post endless threads taking unprovoked shots at Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Andrew Breitbart, Hot Air, and Gateway Pundit (just to name a few).  So, already we can see that CJ’s statement there is pretty ridiculous.

As far as we’re concerned, however, teh Johnson has had to be a lot stealthier when it comes to the warfare.  After all, he’s on record that he doesn’t visit our site. But for some reason, he knows an awful lot about what goes on.  Let’s see what kind of things he’s done in the past year on offence and defense, and in reaction to us.

Bogus “tweet counters”. When we spread the word that Johnson’s the numbers used in his “retweet” boasts had nothing to do with retweets, he held a private thread, sent desperate messages to bit.ly, and eventually posted this:

(It didn’t work, and the “tweet counter” remains busted to this day).
