For most people, the OK sign means, “Okay.” When the universal symbol for well being is misconstrued and coopted to imply a white-supremacist neo-nazi meme, it often defaults to “Charles Johnson is a flying asshole.”
Saw this hit piece recently:
Then I saw this response.
Then I saw this:
Which led me to this:
Which includes this:
And I laughed, because it obviously stands for The Washington Post. Maybe it stands for WordPress, War Pigs, or Wanker Pumpers. Charles Johnson retweeted all of that inane garbage because it’s in his Truth Serum.
Then I saw this.
Whoa. That’s way too close for comfort, Charles. Design some more little green virtual glass buttons and update your avatar.
We’ve seen this story before. The media can’t wait to blame white people en masse for an atrocity perpetrated by a lone psychopath, whose father abandoned him and whose mother is apparently a basket case.
Charles Johnson can’t wait to put the blame on someone who had absolutely nothing to do with it.
During the past few years, Charles has gone through numerous periods during which the posts at LGF have reflected his obsession with one perceived enemy or another. Past targets of this attention include, in roughly decreasing order of posts devoted: Andrew Breitbart, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Pam Geller, and Glen Greenwald.
In recent months, 3 major events have dominated the US news cycles: the Michael Brown shooting, the presence of Ebola in the US, and the midterm elections. What makes the LGF coverage of these events unique is how Charles effortlessly cuts straight to the heart of these complex issues, namely, how someone else is covering them. Lately he has singled out two individuals for his special attention, Jim Hoft of thegatewaypundit.com, and Charles C. Johnson of gotnews.com .
Between August 12th and November 29th,
- LGF had 105 posts about Ferguson, 28 (27%) of these focused on Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 46 posts concerning Ebola, 12 (26%) of these focused on Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 64 posts (out of 376, 17%) focused on either Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 12 posts (3%) focused on the midterm elections.
It wouldn’t be a statistics post without a chart, so here’s what may possibly be the first Venn diagram in the history of DoD.
I wrote that in Gullah because Charles Johnson believes that’s how all Southerners speak (including Californians south of Culver City) and that they’re all racists because of regional dialect. By definition, this is called bigotry.
Ya, gugl Gulla MissaChos.
But here’s the latest from Alexa, LGF by itself, showing traffic ratings for the last 6 months:
By the end of December 2013, LGF’s traffic dropped to a new recent low, and ALEXA ranked it about 106,000th based on traffic. Since then, LGF bounced back to almost 80,000 within 90 days of bottoming out. Good job, Charles!
That graph means nothing on it’s own, so let’s compare it with those others who began blogging about the same time. Let’s add and compare a few of Charles Johnson’s peers from the early days.
Hell, let’s add two more, including a dead man.
Charles, we suggest you start a line of Big Boy Shorts and hawk them on Amazon. Put a bigass green embroidered ass patch on ’em and sell them in the Target parking lot at a discount.
Last week Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit flashed his cards and coughed up some personal information. He’s got serious medical troubles, and at the top of the list are the repercussions of ObamaCare. Hoft was served THE NOTICE.
THE NOTICE was from his insurance company, and it told Hoft that despite his current conditions his medical insurance was null and void. “We’re so sorry to hear about your multiple strokes, and that pesky knee problem that almost cost you your life, but you’re on your own now. Thank you for your premiums over the years, and if there’s anything we can do to help, just dial 1-800-FUCK-YO. Have a nice day.”
Meanwhile, the Master Of The Swamp, Mr. I AM LITTLE GREEN FOOTBALLS IT’S ONLY ME [aka Charles Johnson] allowed a page to be posted on his Little Green Footballs website that mocked Jim Hoft for his medical problems.
Dork Falcon is a fool, Kragar is an ass, and Killgore Trout, for all the crap he’s pulled over the years, is surprisingly sentient.
But it’s the newcomer “S’latch” who nailed it, and he’s spot on. We’re looking at the extermination of a class of citizens via ObamaCare, and it’s perfectly legal…
Yeah. Right. It can’t happen here.
Only behind the fevered forehead of Charles Johnson (nestled in the damp darkness somewhere between his blank black bead-button eyes and his Magical Jazzy Ponytail scrunchie) could this photo be construed as a Pro Nazi Rally, but that’s precisely what he claimed while trying to smear Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit. What exactly is Hoft guilty of? Pulling a Breitbart.
Okay. So radical grampas and grammas and mommies and daddies are neonazis for wanting to prevent the IRS from becoming a US version of Germany’s SS. Got it. So what was Hoft’s “Monumental Fail” that Mr.#Rumpswab refers to? An honest clarification of obvious intent, caught by a Wonkette reader. Original version:
Hunh. That’s a “Monumental Fail” according to someone who is notorious for editing and deleting his own words and those of other years after they were posted on LGF, who claimed he had nothing to do with nicknaming Rachel Corrie “St. Pancake”, who couldn’t identify the State Flags of either Tennessee or Ohio, who can’t tell the difference between a menu board and a laptop, who lied about Brevik’s Manifesto, who honestly claimed Anthony Weiner’s PeniePix as his own, who claimed George Zimmerman wasn’t injured by Trayvon Martin, who supports planting racist comments on rival blogs, who doesn’t know the definition of the word “bogus” or how to pronounce the word “milieu” and who’s been reduced to licking the fetid rump-pus-infections of a blogger known as Wonkette for liberal street cred.
Chuck, you’re a mess.
Update: The inane attack on Hoft continues. Here’s the pertinent part of the DSCC Request For Donations:
The unspoken insinuation is undeniably clear:
The Tea Party is a radical group comprised of neo-nazis.
Jim Hoft’s offer of a reward was poorly worded, but his intent was also undeniably clear:
Prove that the Tea Party supports National Socialism or STFU.
[Update: Added “St. Pancake” to the list of lies, h/t Swamprat.]
I find it a bit odd that Our Pal Charles keeps referring to fellow blogger Jim Hoft as “dumb” without realizing how childish that sounds.
Recently Johnson claimed a “gotcha” for a post on Gateway Pundit titled “Oh, Good Grief… Al Gore Explains Advantages of Sharia Law to Andrea Mitchell (Video).” In his own myopic view, Charles thinks that Hoft bought into the satire as true, even though Hoft (in case anyone whose initials are Charles Johnson missed it) clarified that the vid was a spoof. That wasn’t good enough for Mr. MakeUpABunchaCrapAndStompOnIt.
The linked video was an obvious parody by Sooper Mexican who even described it for the slower lizards: “Parody of an interview of Al Gore by Andrea Mitchell where they discuss his controversial sale of Current-TV to Al-Jazeera.”
Now we don’t need to play a dumb schoolyard name-calling game with Johnson. We don’t need to bring up the Tennessee State Flag, the Ohio State Flag, the Laptop Menuboard, the weiner that owned Charles, the Sarah Palin Shoeshine Hoax, or all the other frauds that Charles fell for and promoted as true without retraction. All we need is to look at the little red worm at the bottom of the current Alexa stats:
Looks like Gateway Pundit’s doing pretty well against El Gusano Rojo, and since Hoft is no threat to Charles, perhaps it’s something else…
Just a coincidence, I’m sure.
