The Pages’ “Do I Believe In You” made No. 84 on Billboard’s Top 100 Singles list in 1979. Charles didn’t last long with that band either, and his levis look very uncomfortable. That might explain something.
The Little Green Footballs Wiki page has been edited from the last time I perused it, and now includes these links:
Allegations of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment
- R. J. Smith, writing in Los Angeles Magazine, stated that LGF is a “dysfunctional mix of beautiful photos Johnson takes on coastal bike rides and constitutionally protected hate speech” which “believes all Muslims are terrorists until proven innocent.”
- Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) called Little Green Footballs “a vicious, anti-Muslim hate site” and says that the FBI has “investigated several threats of physical harm against Muslims posted by Little Green Footballs readers”.
- Columnist Antonia Zerbisias has described LGF as a “virulently anti-Muslim/Arab website”.

Any guesses on who knocked on Charles’ kitchen door at 3AM? Nah. Didn’t think so.

Well, Jackson did visit recently. It would not surprise me if the subject came up.

Ladies and gentlemen: Al Sharpton, the racist demagogue par excellence. He fits in beautifully.

Dennis Kucinich is insane.
Al Sharpton is worse. “In the Middle East, it’s not about terrorism.” Wow.
And Sharpton is getting a riotous ovation for these remarks.

I posted this because I had a feeling the LGF hordes would criticize the ads. I agree — they’re not very good. Invoking Horton is probably a bad idea.
The connections of Al Sharpton to the Kerry campaign should be drawn out; Sharpton is a dangerous man, and represents the looniest wing of the Dems. But it would have to be done more artfully than this, to avoid as much as possible the inevitable cries of racism.

re: #779 shiek al beif salami
IMHO, racism as an accusation against the United States is dead, dead, dead. A few racists may live here, but the country isn’t racist. That issue died once and for all last night, and anyone who keeps it going is a racist by definition.
Sorry, I don’t agree the issue has died. Al Sharpton is already ramping up to push even harder on his favorite race-baiting issues, and that’s the direction things are headed.

re: #528 Cosmo
Just as I do not judge Catholics against the yardstick of John Kerry, nor Baptists and Pentecostals based on Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson, I sincerely hope that, although both Skousen and Beck were/are LDS, that those who frequent this site do not judge the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints solely on their commentaries and opinions.
Nothing I’ve seen here, including Charles’s inherent fairness, would lead me to believe otherwise.
Absolutely not – I don’t judge all Mormons by Cleon Skousen, any more than I judge all Southerners by Robert Stacy McCain.

re: #32 hanoch
So you look at the Nancy Pelosis, Michael Moores, Al Frankens, Cindy Sheehans, Jimmy Carters and Al Sharptons of the world and you conclude that the left side of the political spectrum is where sanity and moderation exists? I can’t understand this.
As you’re a creationist, I wouldn’t expect you to agree.

Notice that American Renaissance can barely hide their contempt for Kevin Martin:
Kevin Martin was the next to speak. He opened by lamenting how difficult it is to be a Republican in the black community. He blamed most of the problems that blacks face on the fact that “self-appointed leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have conditioned blacks to believe in a culture of victimization that prevents them from ever taking responsibility for their own problems.
Nevertheless, Martin seemed to blame the media for most of the negative stereotypes about blacks. His speech was also full of the usual banalities, such as “we’re all members of one race: the human race,” etc. Nevertheless, Martin should be praised for rejecting the culture of victimhood that he described.
Their differences with Martin stem from the fact that they consider him to be genetically inferior to a white man. That’s why they sneer at his comment that the media are to blame for negative stereotypes — because to them, it’s Martin HIMSELF who is to blame, because that’s how black people are.
It’s a profoundly sick world view. This is why decent people shun the Jared Taylor crowd.
No, Charles. You’re not exempt from being called a racist. These days, nobody is,
Charles Johnson wants Twitter to censor the President of the United States.
Here’s the copy:
Comment 9 in the thread:
If you click on the embedded links in that comment, or look for @viciousbabushka on Twitter, you get this:
What she posted that sent her to #Twittergulag is unknown.
Meanwhile, another long-time lizard-lapper, @teleskiguy, confirmed the suspension, called @Jack and @twittersupport assholes.
BONUS: Vicious Babushka (aka Alouette) created and posted these gems on Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs, and nobody on that blog saw anything offensive.
On Friday, 21 June 2019, at 7:35AM, that was the first thing on Charles Johnson’s walnut. Never mind there’s no citations to back up his assertion, never mind no civilians would be killed, only a vapid tweet Yeah, Charles, your bullshit couldn’t possibly be more obvious.
Q: Were you the lefty type one associates with long haired guitar players?
I was pretty much center-left before 9/11. Never an America-hating loon, though. I’ve been a history buff most of my life, and on 9/11 I knew instantly who and what was responsible; I was aware of Bin Laden’s declaration of war on the US and as soon as I turned on the television that morning and saw the World Trade Center collapse, I knew it was Bin Laden and Al Qaeda.
But that day was a real mind-blower, for many people, myself included. At first, my center-liberal leanings caused me to ask, “Why do they hate us?” and similar questions; that questioning led me to begin serious investigation of the Islamic fanaticism that was growing unchecked in the Middle East.
Now I think the question is a pointless one, not because we shouldn’t self-examine, but because the answer lies within the Islamists, not within us — and understanding them will not achieve anything, except to the extent it allows us to defeat them.
Q: What does ‘defeat’ mean, though? Make them cry ‘uncle’?
Yes — the real problem is that America (and most of the civilized world) has tended to brush the Islamists off as “all talk.” They were able to attack us over and over in the years leading up to 9/11 (the USS Cole, Nigerian embassy bombings, first WTC, etc), and never suffered any consequences.
In the Arab/Islamic shame-honor mindset, this is interpreted as weakness — and it was. It was that perceived weakness that was directly responsible for 9/11. The only way to rectify this is to demonstrate superior force; and that’s what President Bush did after 9/11, smashing the Taliban and dethroning Saddam Hussein.
Charles “Pantload” Johnson pantsed himself again.
Yeah, she supported American soldiers who greased some dangerous assholes and celebrated in a profane way. We also remember when you didn’t. You got a problem with that, Charles?
Hurr hurr indeed, #Rumpswab. Go pound arugula.
Nearly 1,000 Tweet Mentions between 6AM and noon, and Charles Johnson read each and every one of them by 11AM. Pheeeew.

Mike: you have stung me to the quick.
Guess you missed the numerous statements from the owner of that site saying it was exactly what he wanted, and that he was delighted with it?
Thank you for the comment, though. Every time you folks reveal yourselves as the low, crass, hate-filled slogan spouters you are, I laugh. But just a little; then I get back to work.
85 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 7:13:34am
It’s on the front page, cedar.
102 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 7:44:17am
cedar: got it. So, in other words, a front page post that contains a vile picture (unflattering, too) of me as Eva Braun is fine with you?
Thanks for clarifying.
113 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 8:09:05am
No, it’s not. However, I don’t recall seeing a picture of you at all on MetaFilter. Did I miss something?
Nice dodge. Thanks for playing.
169 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 10:45:48am
Folks, we’re talking about two different things. The actual picture was not visible on the Mudfilter page.
There was, however, a link to the picture. That’s what cedar and johnny dee think is just fine. According to these guys, there’s a huge difference between posting the actual picture, and posting a link telling people to go look at the picture. Apparently, when someone posts a link to a crude photoshop that puts my head on Eva Braun’s body at Metafilter, I’m supposed to have humility and acknowledge that I’m not always right.
It’s a matter of nuance, you see. When executing a personal smear job, it’s good to do it in as nuanced a way as possible.
176 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 11:09:10am
One is left to wonder how long that personal attack would have remained on Metafilter’s front page if I hadn’t linked to it.
Getting caught does wonders for some people’s scruples.
180 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 11:24:31am
Folks, what we have here is a typical case of lefty role reversal. To divert attention away from the fact that a link to a really nasty personal attack was left on Mudfilter’s front page for several hours — on Easter morning, mind you — it’s now become a matter of the “group think” at LGF. We’re all supposed to be ashamed and I’m supposed to be humble. And even pointing it out is called a bad thing.
Just observe the tactics at work.
182 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 11:32:07am
OK, folks — I don’t know for sure — I never saw the picture at Mudfilter. So I don’t know either way, at least from my personal experience.
But be aware — this is not the issue. This is an attempt by Mudfilter groupies to turn the argument around and deflect the blame.
197 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 12:12:15pm
cedar: you’re really starting to show your jerk badge.
The “Nuke Mecca crowd,” as you put it, does not appear on the front page.
“A dumb post.” I’m trying to remain level-headed here. But someday I’d like to see how you react if you wake up on a nice Easter morning and find the Mudfilter slimeballs chuckling and patting each other on the back at how clever they are for comparing you to Adolf Hitler’s girlfriend.
In an ugly polka dot dress to boot.
Right, but that’s just “dumb.” Whereas, pointing it out is “shameful, hypocritical, disingenuous,” etc. etc. etc. retch.
That “dumb” post stayed up for almost 6 hours, until I linked to it. I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t linked to it, it would have remained.
Now go away, you pest.
204 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 12:23:43pm
Please note: now the discussion has turned to ways to shut LGF down, at Metatalk.
215 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 12:33:49pm
That’s right, not everything is about me. How could I have thought that putting my head on Eva Braun, then gloating over it at Metafilter, was about me?
I’m such a thin-skinned narcissist. You have taught me much, cedar.
304 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 7:47:08pm
And by the way, at this point, you’ve made my case, underlined it, signed it, sealed it, bought insurance, and shipped it FedEx. Thanks.
59 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 2:44:03pm
Note: See the update to the thread. They’re saying mean things about us over at “Screw Them” Zuniga’s hole again.
104 Charles Mon, Apr 12, 2004 7:35:16am
SAO (who is in Canada) takes a pause from bashing LGF at every other site in the blogosphere, to spew:
Nobody is comparing Charles himself to a Nazi, just a few “cherry-picked” comments.
Uh huh. That Eva Braun thing, why, that’s just a joke, right?
167 Charles Mon, Apr 12, 2004 9:36:17am
It’s a lie. There has never been a single post by me that uses the word “pancake” to refer to Rachel Corrie. Not one.
