Charles, you’re full of crap.
William Horton was a 23-year-old hoodlum in 1974 when he and two friends held up a gas station in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Despite the fact that the 17-year-old attendant, Joseph Fournier, handed over $276.37 – all the money from the cash register – the three stabbed him repeatedly and then stuffed him in a garbage can, leaving him there with his feet by his chin, to die from blood loss.
Horton was captured, convicted, and sentenced to life without parole. But in June 1986, he was released from prison as part of Massachusetts’ weekend furlough program, which in 1973 the state supreme court had ruled must be extended to first-degree murderers.
Horton didn’t return from his furlough. Ten months later, he broke into the home of Clifford Barnes and Angela Miller in Oxon Hill, Maryland, and terrorized the couple for 12 hours. He pistol-whipped and stabbed Barnes, then tied him to a pole in the basement. When Miller got home from work, Horton raped her repeatedly at gunpoint, before finally fleeing in the couple’s car.
After he was captured (again!) and sentenced to two consecutive life terms, the sentencing judge refused to return him to Massachusetts. “I’m not prepared to take the chance that Mr. Horton might again be furloughed or otherwise released,” he said. “This man should never draw a breath of free air again.”
When Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis ran for president in 1988, the Horton affair was stapled to his campaign – first by Al Gore in the Democratic primary, who challenged the furlough program in a primary debate. It was raised later, to devastating effect, in an ad for Bush produced by a political action committee that featured Horton’s glowering face, and by Bush himself on the campaign trail.
There is nothing false stated in the ad from 1988. Nothing racist, either. Willie Horton was an animal, a murderous robber, kidnapper, torturer and rapist who never should have been let out of prison in the first place.
Charles, your blatant ignorance and fabrication of easily-verifiable history is an embarrassment to the left wing media. #RUMPSWAB
Charles Johnson Promotes Shinola Again: Planned Parenthood closing had nothing to do with HIV outbreak in rural Indiana in 2015.Posted: April 7, 2017
We’re gonna tear this one apart, Charles. You ready?
Let that sink in for a minute. According to Charles Johnson, defunding Planned Parenthood caused an outbreak in HIV infection in rural Indiana.
That photo was taken by Paul Sableman at 30 South 3rd Street in downtown Terre Haute, Indiana in 2011. Not exactly rural, but geography isn’t Johnson’s strong suit. This particular clinic operated with limited hours for several years, until Planned Parenthood decided to close that location. So what.
Here’s the problem.
The closing of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Terre Haute had nothing to do with an outbreak of HIV in Austin, Indiana, 130 miles and 2-1/2 hours drive time away. Austin is a small rural town of about 4,300 people and it has a drug problem. It’s closer to Louisville Kentucky and Cincinnati Ohio than it is to Terra Haute Indiana.
Apparently Planned Parenthood closed the clinic on South 3rd Street on or about July 2016 (prior to the presidential election) yet they still have local clinics elsewhere. A search of zipcode 47807 on their own website turns up 10 clinics in or near Terre Haute. A search of clinics in zipcode 47102 results in another 10 clinics in or near Austin, Indiana.
So the premise is false, and Charles Johnson is promoting an easily disputable lie.
The HIV outbreak happened in March 2015, affected about 190 people, and was due to needle sharing. The idiots were injecting a liquid version of Opana ER (oxymorphone) an opiate painkiller. In other words, an astounding 4% of the residents of Austin fucked themselves up by sharing HIV-infected needles. That’s not Planned Parenthood’s fault, the fault of the Religious Right or that of conservative politicians. It’s the fault of brain-dead white trash morons who did it to themselves.
BTW, Dillo Bush is the Mayor of Austin, Indiana, and he’s a Democrat, not that it matters…
Charles, you used to pride yourself with fact-checking before posting stupidity. What happened?

1. Charles Johnson posts what he thinks is a scoop on Sarah Palin, and even his own Loyal Lizard Lappers call him on it, but for the wrong reasons:
3. Then Johnson claims, without evidence, that Sarah Palin has a John Birch Society newsletter on her desk. How Charles knows what a JBS Newsletter looks like is up to you to decide. Here’s a blow up of that image, cropped and inverted with enhanced contrast:
Now look at this and note the date:
Palin was reviewing a newsletter about “Con-Con Call” that argues for a Constitutional Convention OPPOSED by the John Birch Society. Is it any surprise that in 1995 a Wasilla Councilwoman might have had such a newsletter on her calendar blotter, just to read it?
In JazzyJohnsonWorld, the answer is yes.
“People like Mark Steyn are just dishonest, bigoted opportunists” – look in the mirror (if you dare) Chunky and see a real dishonest, bigoted, opportunist.
Once upon a time Mark Steyn used to be a treasured columnist on LGF and his columns were regularly posted there.
The Charles Johnson of 2006 would not recognize the 2012 version.

It is fair to point out that the sage of Culver city is a liar. he has lied about his role and goals in Rathegate. Now is lying claiming that Fox News has hired Donald Trump.
Here is the truth, Charles go this story from the Hufington Post. Well here’s the headline from that article.
Here’s what the article Charles linked to actually says.
As Mediaite’s Frances Martel notes, while Trump is merely making a weekly guest appearance and is not becoming a Fox News contributor, “it is surprising to see a potential presidential candidate assume a media role so close to the election.
Trump is not being hired by Fox, but will just have a weekly segment. That’s a huge difference than him being hired. Once again, Charles lies in his headline and the story he links to contradicts it! Another day and another lie by the Sage of Culver City.
Chuck who is warming of some massive Ron Paul led plot involving White Supremacists, Nazis, the Catholic Church, Glenn Beck, Pam Geller, the EDL, the Vlaams Belang, Rightwing Israelis, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Extraterrestrials, Marco Rubio, Tobacco companies, Michelle Bachmann, and Christian Reconstructionists/Dominionists. The latter group he has attacked very harshly and has warned of their nefarious plot to impose a theocratic state in America.
Well the following post is very interesting. Ed Brayton wrote a post, where he discusses the threat of Sharia and radical Islam. His point was to not use the threat of radical Islam to disparage every Muslim. The point of this post is not to argue what Brayton wrote. It is to show that once again Charles has been caught in a lie.
Chuck has said he agrees with every word. Well I ask the readers, do you really think the Jazz Man agrees with this statement below?
So does Charles “Icarus” Johnson agrees that Christian Reconstructionists are not as big a threat as Islamic Imperialists? We know the answer to that is no. In fact his posts discuss the Christian threat and claims the Islamic one is contained.
Chuck has been caught in yet another lie
After being called out for his statement that he agrees with Ed Brayton’s every word, he retracts!
Chuck can’t admit the obvious, he hates Christians.
