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.
Slinging Poo is Charles Johnson’s specialty, and he does it for attention. The Corpulent Blogger believes he’s one post away from being important again. Hoping to get noticed, he blames Fox News for an attack on a Mosque.
Using Charles Johnson’s logic, he himself inspired Anders Breivik to commit the shootings in Oslo. That is another hypocritical post that will not give Charles any traction.

Anders Behring Breivik’s Manifesto
After perusing Charles Johnson’s irrational and slanderous attacks on Fjordman, Pamela Geller, and others, let’s look at some facts.
I downloaded Breivik’s “Manifesto,” as a Word document file and performed a simple search/replace to determine the frequency of mentions of relevant names and blog sites. Caveat: I have not read the entire “manifesto,” I may not read it, and I cannot confirm its authenticity.
“Charles Johnson” and “Johnson” is mentioned 17 times; “Little Green Footballs” and “LGF” is mentioned 16 times.
[Note that there are references to “Marguerite Johnson,” “The Johnson Boys,””Tim Johnson,””Allen Johnson,” and they are not included in the tally.That totals 33 for Charles Johnson, not counting footnotes.]
“Geller” is mentioned 1 time; “Atlasshrugs” is mentioned 12 times.
[Pamela Geller totals 13.]
Other related searches:
“Fjordman” is mentioned 111 times.
“Spencer” is mentioned 55 times.
“Jihadwatch” is mentioned 155 times.
“Geert Wilders” is mentioned 15 times.
“David Duke” is mentioned 3 times.
“English Defense League,” “English Defence League” and “EDF” is mentioned 11 times.
Here are Anders Behring Breivik’s own unedited words as expressed in his “Manifesto.” The references to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs are in the order in which they appear, and I’ve attempted to keep the comments in context. The bold text is my own.
APPARENTLY THE “MANIFESTO” IS A HOAX. Regardless, the point of this post still stands, that Charles Johnson assumed the paper to be legitimate (as did we and many others) and used it to attack other bloggers with charges of guilt-by-association. –Ed.]
[UPDATE No. 2: The MSM, including the Norwegian press, are treating the “Manifesto” as authentic. –Ed.]
