Charles, you’re a mess.
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.
On 15 April 2001 Charles Johnson claimed to be a victim of Islamic Extremism and he lived to tell about it.Posted: June 20, 2017
Off by only a month, Charles Johnson claimed credit for spotting local jihadists. He knew what was coming down because his followers told him so, and Johnson always takes the credit for the work of others.
Johnson’s anecdote precedes the horrors of 911 by five months, yet his antennae were already twitching. At the time of the post, Little Green Footballs had little to do with politics (let alone islamic jihad) and a lot to do with bicycling and low-end computer programming. Back then, few people knew or cared who he was, kinda like now.
On the other hand, Charles Johnson has been shown to manipulate and edit his posts after-the-fact, so it’s possible that he changed the posting date to make it appear he was prescient. I don’t think that’s the case here – He was spooked by the event. Johnson was 48 years old at time of posting, old enough to figure it out.
The screencap is not the product of The Official BRC Nil Stooge Template, it’s what the LGF cached post looks like today, with the new FatBody LGF Logo, Twitter links, and an appropriately round, decade-old image of Charles Foster Johnson.
Johnson can’t debate, won’t discuss, makes fun of names and mocks the genetic physical features of others. Charles, you’re a mental defective who needs an in-house counselor during your waking hours. Call @Gus_802. He knows everything.
Something happened in The Swamp recently. A registered lizard opined on the possible repeal of ObamaCare and a rare upding/downding confusion storm followed.
So on the same day that Charles Johnson bloviated about a “roadmap to theocracy,” here comes someone echoing Johnson himself. “Brian J.” posted a blatant attack on whites and religion, then got the hairy eyeball from the same people who, despite being white and religious, disparage being white and religious on a regular basis. No idea who this “Brian J.” is, whether he’s legit or a troll, but he certainly pantsed the LGF hypocrisy.
So please explain, Charles. How did you manage to choose your ancestry, and why is it so much better than Oprah’s?
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.
Something flew up Charles Johnson’s HooHah recently that got him to post a series of Tweets attacking the late Michael Crichton. Unfortunately, Mr. Crichton isn’t around to defend himself, so he’s an easy target for Mr. Hypocrisy.
Michael Crichton was a successful formulaic novelist who based his themes on research. Many of his novels had similar characters thrown into similar situations with similar challenges, yet they were entertaining. “Jurassic Park” may be his most famous work. My favorite was “Eaters of the Dead,” a retelling of Beowulf with the hypothesis that Grendel was not a dragon but a tribe of mountain Neanderthals carrying torches to drive out the invaders.
In “State of Fear” Crichton used his typical formula for a fast-paced novel, but the Appendices were where the meat was. He included graphs and links to data sites (including NASA) to show that Global Warming was little but promoted hysteria based upon false assumptions. Shortly after SoF was published, NASA took down the referenced links, and subsequent edited copies of the book deleted reference to them. Someone got pantsed.
Now back to Charles Johnson. Why is he suddenly bothering with a novel from ten years ago? He fights with a dead man, offers no evidence to contradict Crichton’s sources, and remains an ignorant blowhard. Charles, your a mess.
Update: Charles was indeed a fan of Michael Chrichton, as evidenced by his comment on 4 March 2007:
