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 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.
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.)
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.
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.
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, 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.
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.]
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.
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.
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.
“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.
“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 »
