An aberration in the Little Green gastro-reflux continuum

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?

Charles Johnson Attacks A Violent Religious Fanatic

CJs POPE BASH

Charles can’t even get his CNN Cut-N-Paste Abortion correct.

“Every man or woman, whatever their situation, can be saved. Even non-Christians can respond to this saving action of the Spirit. No person is excluded from salvation simply because of so-called original sin.”
The Rev. Thomas Rosica, Vatican spokesman

[…]

Even atheists like David Silverman, president of American Atheists, who has had an antagonistic relationship with the Catholic church, welcomed the pope’s remarks.

“While the concept of Jesus dying for atheists is wrong on many levels (especially given that Jesus himself promised hell for blasphemers), I can appreciate the pope’s `good faith’ effort to include atheists in the moral discussion. Atheists on the whole want no part in Catholicism, of course, but we are all interested in basic human rights.”

According to Charles “I AM LITTLE GREEN BLOGOSPHERE” Johnson, Pope Francis violated the “terms of service” of the Catholic Church and somehow “raised a ruckus” by saying that even the souls of assholes like Johnson may be saved from eternal damnation. Pheeeeew.

Johnson has finally transformed himself into the relative insignificance of Keyboard Cat.


BUCK PART II

The drama continues. Here’s a recap.

Long time Lizard “Buck” (LGF Class of 2001) called out Charles Johnson for taking quotes out of context with regard to anti-jihadist Brigitte Gabriel on the CNN/President Zucker thread. Rather than debate differences in opinion, Johnson and the LGF hive descended with emotional vitriol and name calling, completely disregarding the facts.
[Ref: Buck Schools the LGFer]

In order to dismiss Buck’s argument, Johnson posted fabricated quotes attributed to Gabriel (just as he did with Rush Limbaugh) and linked to a NYT article attacking Gabriel written by Laurie Goodstein whose information came from Lebanese Hizbollah supporter Hwaida Saad. (Saad claims that Arab-Christian Brigitte Gabriel lies about her family’s persecution at the hands of muslim extremists.)

Back to the present.  Buck chose not to walk away quietly, as he knew he had facts on his side:Buck II

Buck was polite and to the point, but self-appointed LGF guard dog “wrenchwench” spotted the new comments and put out the alert:130422 Wenchwrench Finks On Buck

Charles Johnson can’t accept being shown he’s wrong, even when it’s done with polite respect and backed up by facts. It’s easier to demonize and kill the messenger at Little Green Footballs. MORE TO COME.

____________________________________________________

Update: We held off posting more as we fully expected a new swarm of dingwars, but there are so few Lizards willing to be marked and tracked by Johnson’s in-house stealth system (“spy mode” allows registered lizards to track and fink on each other) that they went silent in paranoia. Once the ban stick is taken down and bonked on the floor a few times, the eggshells get big, brittle and scary for the sycophantic lizard lappers of Little Green Footballs.

Buck III

We agree that name calling is childish, but once we post Charles Johnson’s own words and bust him on it, we’re only quoting the late Andrew Breitbart when we refer to the big boy cheap-shot cut-N-paste futon drama diva as “fuckface.”
Thank you Charles.


Mr. Pitiful: Charles Johnson Cuts & Pastes & Propagates Misinformation

Charles Johnson Rumpswab

You ready for the dissection? Here we go. The story Charles Johnson refers to links here, where we find this:

The resolution grew out of a dispute between the American Civil Liberties Union and the Rowan County Board of Commissioners. In a federal lawsuit filed last month same time with http://sideeffectsofxarelto.org/xarelto-lawsuits/, the ACLU says the board has opened 97 percent of its meetings since 2007 with explicitly Christian prayers.

Overtly Christian prayers at government meetings are not rare in North Carolina. Since the Republican takeover in 2011, the state Senate chaplain has offered an explicitly Christian invocation virtually every day of session, despite the fact that some senators are not Christian.

Got that? The State of North Carolina is under attack by the ACLU for opening prayer at state sessions, so in defense and to defeat the frivolous lawsuits, the State proposes to legalize Christian prayer via legislation. In other words, North Carolina was goaded into action by the actions of the liberal ACLU.

But that’s not how the story is presented by Mr. Cut-N-Paste. “It’s an explicit violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution,” he says, and he’s completely wrong.

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The key word is Congress, Chuck, and the State of North Carolina is not it. The ACLU is attempting to prohibit the free exercise thereof, and that’s what the story is about.

“The word for this is ‘theocracy’,” claims Mr. Charles F. Rumpswab, thus displaying his basic lack of understanding about what the word means. The “fanatical religious nutjobs who are wasting money on pointless anti-Constitutional legislation” are the ACLU weasels, Chuck.

[BTW,  Charles cut and pasted this unoriginal image from istockphoto, so we modified it for purposes of this post; otherwise the screencap was left untouched.]


Easter In The Swamp: The Intolerant Bigotry Flows

What a surprise. The pseudo-cognoscenti of The Swamp congealed into a large dollop of pathetic snark against Easter celebrations and Christianity in general, so let’s visit some of the blatant bigotry. Note that not ONE SINGLE LIZARD POSTED ANYTHING in defense of this Holy Day of Reverence.

Easter At LGF

There’s really no point in posting more screencaps because the Little Green atheists, agnostics, Muslims, Jews and Christians who populate Charles Johnson’s hate-mongering website just can’t be bothered (or are too afraid of being downdinged) to call him out on it. It’s just another typical shovelful of the inane garbage posted daily at Ladle Grease Fartbigots.

[P.S. Gus_802, your blatant racism against Michelle Malkin is noted, as is your lack of talent with graphic design. Eat a bag of #rumpswabs.]

[UPDATE: It appears Daedalus and I were posting at the same time, so let’s combine the two since they’re related.]

Gus_802’s finest moment was when he was defending Argentina’s reputation from bigots on Twitter. But that honorable moment lasted very briefly. Today Gus tweeted a picture that reminds us why he is a low life worm.

Would he tweet a picture mocking Mohammed? Of course not, since it would get him banned from LGF. Gus is just your typical Progressive intellectual coward.


Blatant Bigotry On Little Green Footballs: “He’s just another piece of shit.”

Charles Johnson (owner of Little Green Footballs, Race Detective and Nazi Hunter, Internet Watchdog for bigotry and predudice) is a wonder to behold. What should have been a respectful and tolerant benign thread, The Johnson set the tone.

Pope Francis
“Magic Hat?” Coming from someone who once fought anti-Jewish sentiment and radical Islamic anti-Christian propaganda, that childish epithet is a bit much even for King Charles. I thought perhaps the other lizards might be more civil despite that dogwhistle. Indeed the first comment was benign, so Charles made sure that his little green lizardlappers got the message beginning with Comment No. 2.

Pope Francis.2

“Apparently?” Who’d have thought that the new pope would promote marriage between a man and a woman, and believe that children are better off with a mom and a dad? With that, they’re off and running. Read the rest of this entry »


The Ruse And Fail Of Little Green Footballs Part V – The Turnaround

This is Part 5 of a monograph about a blog named Little Green Footballs and its founder Charles Foster Johnson. Click the links below for related posts. They will be updated as the series continues.

PART 5 – THE LIBERAL TURNAROUND

Up until the election of Barrack Obama in 2008, LGF could still be seen as essentially a conservative blog. Indeed, in blog awards voting, LGF was consistently listed as “conservative” and Johnson voiced no qualms about the distinction.

But a change was in the wind, and in 2008 Johnson became obsessed with religion and “creationism” in particular. At the same time, his posts took a decidedly “anti-Christian” tone. The same fervor with which Johnson once exposed Islamofascism around the globe, he became intent on uncovering the evil ensconced in the Christian belief that God created the heavens and earth, while ignoring the fact that other major religions held similar belief systems.

Johnson ran regular threads about lawmakers wanting to teach creationism in classrooms, with the theme that if this view prevailed and Intelligent Design and/or creationism was even discussed in schoolrooms, the Republic was doomed. While many at LGF agreed with Johnson that creationism or even intelligent design should not be taught in the schools, many were not ready to abandon their own religions and follow the tenets of Darwin. Of the religious frequenters to LGF, most realized that creationism and evolution were not necessarily contradictory.
