Thanks for everything you’ve done for us, Charles. Were it not for you, we’d have never known about the Nazi Threat, the Confederate AirCav hat, the Tennessee State Flag, Obama’s flag, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Stacy McCain, George Duke’s VW and others. The Boiler Room Crew would not have existed, we’d have never gotten to interview Andrew Breitbart.
The Ruse and Fail of Little Green Footballs would have never been posted.
You’re so awesome, Charles.
Anders Breivik is very proud of you.
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs Has Been Reduced From Posting Important Current Events and Breaking News to Music Vids and Links to Comics Who Think They Are The Reincarnation of Lenny Bruce When They’ve Never Heard Of Either Lenny Bruce Or Charles Johnson.Posted: May 17, 2018
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs blog is fading, and it’s fading in non-spectacular fashion. When was the last time he bragged about his “open sign-up” stats? You remember the “Door Is Open – Door Is Closed” taunting? When was the last time he posted something original, with links to prove it? Never. When was the last time Charles Johnson posted an honest-to-god current photo of himself while screeching at others for hiding behind avatars? Yeah, we heard your song long ago, Charles.
Everyone in the Blogosphere knows the answer to that one, and everyone in the Blogosphere doesn’t give a Johnson.
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.
[This post by the legendary ChenZhen has been sitting silent in the bottom of the DoD drafts folder for years for unknown reasons, but since it’s the 6th Anniversary of Charles Johnson’s Johnson TwitterFail, we might as well turn it loose. –Briareus]
In light of Johnson’s recent, um, friskiness in the Twitterverse, and the fact that we kinda skipped the DoD awards ceremony this year, I’m going to go ahead and declare what would have been the winner anyway.
To be fair (not that we need to be), the tweet came during Johnson’s hilariously desperate attempts to defend and excuse Rep. Weiner while he was dealing with the bombshell that Breitbart delivered (in retrospect, perhaps we can assume that the fact that it was AB played a factor in the intensity of CJ’s efforts).
Frustrated, and convinced that he was fighting the good fight, he even added the trending hashtag to ensure that as many netizens outside his swamp saw this as possible:
After so many years of being ignored, the Culver City Blimp is a splash at Twitter. Of course, it’s not the same as getting a daily shame post at Twitchy, but with the guilty plea of America’s second-favorite pervert (after all, who can to BJ and the Blue Dress?), Alex Griswold has resurrected one of our Favorite Fatman’s classic got-it-wrong posts from his glorious days of yesteryear.
If you want to see Alex’s tweet and the Chevy’s-worthy fajita’ing of the man who blocks everyone that can expose him, click here: https://twitter.com/HashtagGriswold/status/865615146550538241
One can only imagine Chubby Cheeks went berserk with the Google ping. Notice also his slathering minions came nowhere near this tweet to defend him.
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’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.
Almost Everything Charles Johnson Ever Posted About Andrew Breitbart From Behind His Little Green Encrusted Iron Curtain Is A Load Of Crap.Posted: March 23, 2015
Charles Johnson is a unrepentant petulant pissant liar, currently whining on Twitter about how a dead man abused him. In fact, the late Andrew Breitbart was one of Chuck’s mentors, introduced him to the movers and shakers of rightwing internet media, and helped Johnson promote Little Green Footballs.
So then something happened. Johnson reversed course, and instead of leaving his previous persona behind and quietly walking away, he decided to attack those same people who helped him out, like Andrew Breitbart, Roger Simon, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Zombie, Fjordman, RS McCain, and others, in order to prove something. What that something was is still unknown.
