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.
Fetched from the RetroBin:
A few years later (2009) Jihad Watch posted this:
I first encountered Aziz Poonawalla during my dialogue of the deaf with the spitting, sputtering hateblogger Dean Esmay, as Poonawalla was and may still be a contributor to his blog. Poonawalla and I also have had several unpleasant exchanges, during which — as you can see if you read them — he didn’t demonstrate an overwhelming commitment of honesty or integrity. —Robert Spencer
Aziz Poonawalla is an anti-semitic muslim propagandist who’s been at it for a while, but that was then and this is now, at least according to Charles Johnson, and something happened. Now they’re best buds. Read the rest of this entry »
Almost Everything Charles Johnson Ever Posted About Andrew Breitbart From Behind His Little Green Encrusted Iron Curtain Is A Load Of Crap.Posted: March 23, 2015
Charles Johnson is a unrepentant petulant pissant liar, currently whining on Twitter about how a dead man abused him. In fact, the late Andrew Breitbart was one of Chuck’s mentors, introduced him to the movers and shakers of rightwing internet media, and helped Johnson promote Little Green Footballs.
So then something happened. Johnson reversed course, and instead of leaving his previous persona behind and quietly walking away, he decided to attack those same people who helped him out, like Andrew Breitbart, Roger Simon, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Zombie, Fjordman, RS McCain, and others, in order to prove something. What that something was is still unknown.
Charles, you so funny.
[From KUSI San Diego 25 March 2014]
EL CAJON (CNS) – Jury selection is scheduled to begin Wednesday in the murder trial of an Iraqi man accused of fatally beating his wife in their El Cajon home after she asked for a divorce.
Opening statements in the trial of Kassim Alhimidi are expected next week.
Alhimidi, 49, was arrested on Nov. 8, 2012, by El Cajon police in what was first thought to be a hate crime. His wife, 32-year-old Shaima Alawadi, was found mortally injured with at least six head wounds in their Skyview Street residence on March 21, 2012.
First-responders found a note in the home that read, “This is my country, go back to yours, terrorist.”
When the murder hit the news in March 2012, Charles Johnson jumped on it as undeniable evidence of U.S. anti-Muslim bigotry, linked to some Think Progress propaganda, then named the perpetrators:
Yeah, that’s the same Think Progress that posted mass murderer Anders Brevik’s top influences, yet kinda sorta forgot to mention the 3rd runner up in the “Manifesto” was
Charles “I AM LITTLE GREEN FOOTBALLS” Johnson himself.
[Hat tip to @markhumphrys for reminding us.]
UPDATE: Contributor Hercales posted the story on Diary of Daedalus on 15 November 2012 and included this quote from Nina Burleigh of Time Magazine:
New information in the Shaima Alawadi murder case in El Cajon, Calif., suggests that the family was cracking over a forced marriage for daughter Fatima, 17, and that Alawadi herself was preparing to divorce her husband. If female freedom turns out to be at the heart of the murder, it will highlight not so much the intolerance of Muslim immigrants by Americans, but the cultural restrictions on women in those communities …
This was not a run-of-the-mill domestic dispute. Kassim Alhimidi beat his wife to death with a tire iron…
The polls are closed and the votes as tallied by PollDaddy.com have a healthy margin of error that even Dan Rather would envy. No tracking of individual votes is possible. The polls could have been set up to block by IP address but that creates undesirable side effects – for example, every McDonald’s in Culver City might be inadvertently blocked by a single corpulent wifi vote. With those caveats out of the way, let’s proceed.
PRESENTING THE 2012 LGF AWARDS AWARDS
THE BUZZSAW AWARD is for intrepid and pithy flouncing, and is hereby awarded to right_wing2, aka MF Horn, who quietly kept his LGF account alive through The Great Purge, until resurfacing on 3 November 2012. His flounce survived for 6 hours and garnered a mere 7 downdings before Mr. ThinSkin was alerted and deleted it. It’s preserved in all it’s glory here courtesy of The BRC. Congrats.
THE IRISH ROSE AWARD is awarded to those sycophantic echo-chamber lizards possessing the thickest calluses on their lips. It takes a lot of suckage to earn this one, and it was a close race between Dark Falcon and Gus_802, both well deserving of this ignominious award.
Before we proceed with the formal award, we’d like to point out that Destro was in the running. This full-blown piece of anti-American crap got exactly ZERO votes. Anti-semite lizard Curious Lurker was a write in candidate who deserved to be included on the ballot, but she’s got nothing on the two front runners.
Dark Falcon, winner of the 2010 Irish Rose Award, is the mountain lion of this category once again. Dork climbs the LGF ladder rung by rung, gets smacked down, apologizes and repeats, over and over. Dork, you’re the epitome of a sycophantic suck up of the worst kind, and you deserve every last steaming chunk of This Glorious Award. You’ve held onto your crown of awesome, so kudos and congrats go to you, The Electrolux Posterboy, Dark Falcon.
THE JOHNSON AWARD – Really, who gives a Chuck, but before we move on to our final Award, we should mention some awesome that happened in 2012 on Diary of Daedalus.
The Ruse and Fail of Little Green Footballs was requested by the late Andrew Breitbart via direct communications with The BRC in fall of 2011. It resulted in the most extensive and detailed monograph on Charles Johnson & LGF ever posted on the internet to date. Perhaps the best smackdown came last June as a stand-alone report.
Revisiting Rathergate ripped apart Charles’ specious claims that he’d discovered and exposed the Killian Documents Forgery by creating the “throbbing memo” that eventually brought down Dan Rather. (Hint: He didn’t.)
This brings us to the final award of this auspicious occasion. A Most Prestigious Award was created to recognize those sentients from Beyond The Valley of Diary of Daedalus who chose to expose and mock the hypocrisy of Charles Johnson elsewhere in the blogosphere. Without further adieu, we are proud to present THE MILYO.
Awarded To One Most Deserving for the Following Excellent Reasons:
- He introduced Charles Johnson to Pajamas Media (and Pamela Geller) and explained his stunned amazement at Charles’ penchant for unwarranted backstabbing.
- He stuck Charles Johnson with the nic “The Magical Jazzy Ponytail.”
- He beat Charles Johnson in the #TwitterWars of 2011 and got him to whine about being blocked.
- He exposed Twitter links between Charles Johnson and some nefarious characters, eventually forcing Johnson to delete his own tweets and direct messages, and to abandon his former persona as @Lizardoid.
- He participated in an interview on Blogmocracy Radio, without pretense and with cordial nonchalance, and referred to Charles Johnson as “fuckface.”
- He passed away unexpectedly on 1 March 2012, yet Charles Johnson continues to attack him.
THE 2012 MILYO AWARD is hereby bestowed upon the late
Congrats to all who stalked, mocked, monitored, nominated, were nominated and voted for the 2012 LGF Awards. Rock on, y’all.
[Update: Poll results may be viewed here.]
I was starting to worry about Charles when he didn’t put up a new thread in over 18 hours. I thought something bad happened, like maybe he swallowed a whole deep fried turduken for Thanksgiving and was glued to the linoleum.
Fortunately I found him stomping around on an LGF Page posted 21 November by “Rochi613.” It was a two-paragraph excerpt written by Daniel Greenfield [Winning the Peace] that stated the obvious fact that a military cannot win conflicts by being politically correct.
Charles and his stooges jumped on Rochi613 (the daughter of a Rabbi in Israel) not for the page content, but for the linked blog. Read the rest of this entry »
