Racism, Bigotry, Arson & The Brady Bunch

So I dragged out the old BRC waders (they still smell like ISTE) and took a brief stroll through the LGF wallows. Not much of interest, mostly reposts of tweets, misplaced hatred, and a picture of a vinegar pie (whatever the hell that is).

Check out the number of UpDings on Number 43. Is it bigotry, a call to violence, or just snark? It appears to be all three. “Preach it Brother!” indeed.

Passé Political Punditch Charles F. Johnson Abandons Word Salad, Adopts Verbal Coleslaw

Read that title and caption again. Bet you can’t decipher it.


Update 25 November 2019:
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m still here. I did not threaten to resign. Let’s just say we are here to talk about external threats and Eddie Gallagher is not one of them.” – SECNAV Richard Spencer

Charles Johnson vs. Sarcasm – Sarcasm Wins

Hey, Charles.

Mark Levin’s book “UNFREEDOM OF THE PRESS is an easy read. It’s not historical fiction, and he backs it all up with easily found references and sources. Dare you to read it, Charles, and if you disagree with any of it, go rip him a new one. You’re all about history and facts, yeah?

Double dare you to call into Levin’s daily radio show and educate him. Give us a heads up when you’ll be calling in so we can have the popcorn ready.

BTW, Charles, let us know what books you’ve written, and we’ll give you a free shout out, too.


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.

3 November 2019 screencap proves that Little Green Footballs is still a cutting edge news aggregation site.

Have at it.


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.
