No, Charles. Breivik linked directly to your website, quoted from articles that you posted and promoted, and named you multiple times. You took responsibility for your own content with the statement “I AM Little Green Footballs. It’s only me.”
Remember when Charles Johnson claimed that Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and others were responsible for deranged madman Anders Breivik’s murder spree in Oslo within hours of the shootings, merely because they were mentioned in his “Manifesto?”
Remember when ThinkProgress posted a bar chart of Breivik’s influences based upon his online “Manifesto” and omitted Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs? Remember when the BRC did a simple word search of Breivik’s “Manifesto” and found over 30 citations that were omitted by ThinkProgress? Remember when we posted an updated StinkProgress bar chart to include Breivik’s references to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs?
Remember when Glenn Greenwald found it, verified it and reposted it? Heh.
Remember when we turned the ThinkProgress bar chart into a pie chart?
Charles Johnson is a lying coward. At least Glenn Greenwald is honest.
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.
