ALEXA & Charles Johnson’s Traffic Manipulation

Occasionally The BRC checks the Little Green Footballs ALEXA Statistics, and there appears to be an anomaly in the fabric of the futon vortex. Something happened on 20 September 2019 that gave Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs a significant bump in traffic.

According to ALEXA, in less than two months (52 days) LGF traffic increased by an astounding 143%. Did Charles Johnson post breaking news? No. Did he increase the number of headline posts on his front page? Yes. Does clicking on the LGF front page automatically tally all posts on the front page as having been read? Yes.

Compare today’s graph with this one from 25 September 2014:

In other words, Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs was ranked by Alexa at -73K in September 2014, and as of December 2019 it’s at -307K.

That’s some impressive work, Charles.


No More Dates For Charles?

Okay, so we noticed that Little Green Footballs’ popularity DOUBLED in a mere 90 days according to Alexa Blog Stats. Yeah, that’s not unusual, considering that LGF has been in a death spiral for a decade or so. No, not unusual at all.

Perhaps somebody’s been messing with the hit counter again, eh, Charles?

To be fair, maybe the statistical goose is due to Johnson’s coverage of the “INQUISITION” that began Tuesday,13 November and continued on Friday,15 November 2019, and that everyone in the world wanted to get Charles Johnson’s insightful opinion. Yeah, sure they did.

We also noticed that the LGF posts no longer have dates, i.e., the day and month of the posting. Instead, the posts are listed as “1 day ago,” “2 days ago,” “456 days ago,”etc.

Why would Charles Johnson do that? Pheew.


Veterans Day

Leftists claim to be against tyranny, yet they fight those who fight against it.

Just took a dive into The Johnson Files. In over ten years, not once did Charles Johnson mention Veterans’ Day in the LGF comments section. Not even a pithy, sanctimonious, self-aggrandizing “Thank you for your service” comment. Not surprising

Nice work, Charles. Hope someone has your back when you need it most.


From the unpublished archives of Diary of Daedalus: About “Saint Pancake”

Never finalized, never posted, never seen the light of day, until now. Last saved by Chen Zhen on 08 October 2011.

“Saint Pancake”

On the wikipedia entry for LGF, you’ll find this:

Rachel Corrie

Johnson has stated many times that he is disgusted with media coverage of the death of International Solidarity Movement activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Rafah, a town in theGaza Strip.[40] Johnson disputes the ISM’s account, holding that Corrie was “trying to ‘protect’ a house used for drugs and weapons smuggling”.[40] Johnson states:

Rachel Corrie was emphatically not a “peace activist”. She sided with terrorists and criminals, and advocated—in fact, was excited by—violence and mass murder.[41]In support of this view, he has cited[41] a diary entry[42] from Corrie in which he claims that she expresses the view that Palestinian violence towards Israel is justifiable and laudable.[41]

In posts about her on LGF, Johnson often features a photo of Corrie burning a hand-drawn American flag and surrounded by Palestinian children.[40]

What the wiki editors leave out is the interesting story behind the term “Saint Pancake”, which originated on LGF and was a staple reference to Corrie (and the manner of her demise) for years after her death (it was an entry in the long-lost LGF Dictionary, and even the handle of an LGFer).  It remains as one of the quintessential examples of the gall and dishonesty of Charles Johnson.

You see, rather than owning up to his culpability in popularizing the term and simply apologizing for it, Johnson instead denied any association, going so far as to state this at The Guardian:

It took a little while, but not only was it discovered that Johnson DID use the term, an analysis of the LGF comments section reveals that he essentially christened it.


Heh.


THE JOHNSON FILE

Have at it.


Charles Johnson paints Trump in blackface, claims the black man wants to execute a “whistle blower” who’s not a whistle blower, and ignores the Little Green Footballs whistle blower. Pheeew.

Um, no, Charles, he really didn’t. Here’s the clip:

“Mum’s the word. Keep it to yourself and don’t tell a soul, but I heard from a reliable source that someone seems to have said…” Hearsay is not admissible evidence in court or anywhere UNTIL NOW.

That’s a game changer, Charles, especially for you. See, we had a commenter a long time ago who made some unverifiable  accusations. The Boiler Room Crew couldn’t confirm the allegations, but they were posted here with caveats. Since The Rules have changed, we now have to accept the comments of the anonymous “BabyGiraffes” as credible.

In retrospect, Babygiraffes was likely a credible source.

Good luck defending yourself against this one, Charles.
