I took a stroll over to The Mothership this afternoon and found that she was down for unknown reasons. Thinking that my FireFox bookmarks might be corrupted due to the recent upgrade, I googled The Blogmocracy and clicked that link. No dice.
Instead I found an amusing blast from the past by Robert Stacy McCain in 2012. Down in the comments, “Jacobus” posted a link to this:
The last phrase in that self-description says a lot.
So 33-year-old Magical Jazzy played with Chicago in 1986? News to me, so I searched the BRC Archives. He never once mentioned the band, and he’s not listed anywhere in their lineups. Go figger.
“All roads lead to Jazzy.” –Andrew Breitbart
As an addendum to our previous thread, with impeccable timing and acerbic wit Robert Stacy McCain took his current events report about professional internet litigation troll Bill Schmalfeldt, wound it around the ample backside of Charles Johnson, and then kicked The Magical Jazzy Ponytail right in the mudflaps.* Given the size of the target, it’s not that tough to do.
In September 2009, while I was covering the Tea Party rally in Washington, D.C., Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs (whose blog had once been fairly important among conservatives) decided to unload the SPLC/Signorile “white supremacist” on me, and I fought a two-week blog war to prove my point: Charles Johnson is a worthless damned fool. Everybody at that time recognized that CJ had gone off the deep end. He had started losing his grip in October 2007, when he began smearing Pamela Geller as a “neofascist,” and his slow descent into madness (ranting against “creationists” and “climate denialists”) had been watched with quiet chagrin by Charles’s former allies. Once he attacked me, however, Johnson’s defection to the Left suddenly became a matter of public knowledge, and actually got noticed by the New York Times.
The Little Green Meltdown was big news back in 2009. It had the incidental effect of creating a sort of residual echo for the Internet Legend of Robert Stacy McCain, White Supremacist. Because there are many friends who can vouch for my bona fides, this doesn’t really bother me — “Don’t Give a Damn About My Bad Reputation,” as Joan Jett said — and my indifference to this really seems to make some people crazy.
Yet there is a certain type of person who thinks, “A-ha! I’m an expert at this Internet Detective stuff, so I will prove what an awful racist this guy is! I will expose him for the Evil Right Wing Hater that we all know he must be! And then I will become the Most Famous of All Internet Detectives! People will love me!”
So they run off chasing that phantom and, when they fail, they become convinced that I’ve played some kind of dirty trick on them by evading their Internet Detective skills and they go nuts. This explains my tendency to attract crazy trolls and, speaking of which, Charles Johnson has created a Secret Blog Commenting System that will allow him and his dwindling mob of kooks to discuss their weird obsessions without fear that someone will screen-cap their insanity.
Here, I’ve got $20 that says this latest Wile E. Coyote Acme Rocket Skates™ genius plan will fail. What will happen, I predict, is that someone inside the Secret Blog Commenting System will say something that pisses off Charles Johnson, resulting in one of his periodic spasms of ban-the-dissenters fury. Screen-caps of the Secret Blog Commenting System discussion will then be published, with embarrassing consequences for Charles & Friends. Of course, this will be of interest only to those of us who remember who Charles Johnson was, back when he really mattered, which was many, many years ago.
Here’s the whole shebang, and it includes these gems:
Breitbart was right. “All roads lead to Jazzy.“
P.S. For those who are new to Diary of Daedalus or don’t remember, RSM spent some time with us on BlogMock Radio on 29 April 2012. What a hoot. Jump to 00:32:00 for the intro to
“The Little Green Footballs Power Hour.”
* Mr. McCain’s right boot was forever lost in, um, The Great Johnson Crevasse, and he needs a replacement. Hit his Tip Jar.
Charles, you so funny.
A Hearty Welcome to all BlogMockers, Stalkers, TwitterWarriors, Chuckleophiles, Current & Former Lizards and Esteemed Fellows of The Diary of Daedalus! Grab a brew and a big bowl of Cheetos’ cause it’s time for
The Annual LGF Awards!
Pickin’s were slim for Stupor Bowl 2014. Charles Johnson’s website Little Green Footballs has become a homogenous mix of like-minded vaporbrains, answering the right questions with the wrong answers while patting their fuzzy pockmarked behinds with congratulatory updings. This year’s Award Nominees and Poll Results turned up some surprises, so without further adieu, here are the recipients of The 2014 LGF Awards.
Previous winners of The Buzzsaw Award for intrepid flounce-worthy snarkage were:
2013 – Killgore Trout
2012 – Rightwing_2 aka MF Horn
2011 – No Awards. Fire in the Boiler Room
2010 – Cato “Do It Now” The Elder
The 2014 Buzzsaw Award is hereby presented to Killgore Trout.
Killgore Trout (Recipient of the 2013 Buzzsaw Award) received a whopping 52% of the vote this time around. He’s best known for his dishonest astroturfing of right wing websites in order to gain favor with Charles Johnson, and it worked for a while. Killgore lost his crown due to LGF hive attacks (orchestrated by Iceweasel & Jimmah), his penchant for non-conformity and general contrarian positions on LGF, and especially for his unwavering support for the State of Israel.
THE IRISH ROSE
Previous winners of The Irish Rose Award for salivating suckage:
2013 – Gus_802
2012 – Dark Falcon
2011 – No Awards. Fire in the Boiler Room
2010 – Dark Falcon
The 2014 Irish Rose Award is hereby presented to Stabby
The Irish Rose is not one that most recipients cherish. It acknowledges drooling unrequited love and adulation of Charles Foster Johnson and is reserved for those sycophantic little lizard lappers who remain in good standing at Little Green Footballs by stroking the Big Green Donkey Charles. Many assumed that El Gusano would win again this year, but it wasn’t in the cards for the Argentinian anti-American pro-jihad Johnson-catching Jew hater.
To his credit, Stabby had the cojones (unlike other LGF patrons like Gus_802 or Dark Falcon) to venture past the confines of The Swamp and opine at Diary of Daedalus, and therefore deserves the Award. (We’ve hosed off and disinfected Gus’ stained and encrusted throne, so shut up and have a seat.)
No one ever doubts who’s going to win The Johnson Award because there are so few 60+ year old guitarist bloggers with magical jazzy ponytails who qualify.
Here’s the vote breakdown. G’head. Click it, Charles.
2013 – Robert Stacy McCain
2012 – Andrew Breitbart (awarded posthumously)
Of all the LGF Awards, this one is perhaps the most auspicious (Charles pronounces the word “ouse-picky-use”) because it involves those who smack down The Corpulent Blogger with intelligence, logic, clever wit and humor.
Nick Searcy [@YesNickSearcy] won with 32% of the vote for his concise and effortless Twitter smackdowns of Charles [@Green_Footballs] Johnson’s kikmidog-style of ankle biting, and demonstrated the heart, soul, snark and wit required of all recipients of This Award. Therefore
Without disparaging Mr. Searcy’s entertaining and invaluable contributions, he never endured the vile barrage that Charles Johnson and his Little Green Flying Monkeys unleashed on Mandy [@Liberty_Chick] Nagy. While coping with Lupus Disease, Mandy suffered a massive stroke last fall, leaving her seriously crippled, both physically and mentally, and Charles Foster Johnson sent NO condolences.
Honorable Mention: Mandy Nagy
Kudos to all who participated in This Poll, and thanks also to The Corpulent One, whose hyperbolic bloviation and juvenile attention-whoring idiocy has provided us so much inane entertainment over the years.
Charles, PLEASE keep up the stupid. Were it not for your massive ego, your unjustified backstabbing of benefactors and supporters, and your dearth of coherent logic, we wouldn’t be sitting behind you at the Matinee kicking your chair, spitting Milk Duds down your shirt collar and betting on how many wet jujubes your magical jazzy ponytail can hold before they start dropping into your plumber’s crack. Thank you, Charles.
Charles F. Johnson is an amateur leftist. He can’t hide his lies and smears against those who supported him, regardless if his blogger buddies were on the right or left. He’s a man without a clue.
Seems there’s another way to get people who disagree with Charles F. Johnson to get their Twitter accounts suspended besides the infamous Twitter Comment Block/Report Trap. Spam Twitter CEO Dick Costolo (via #AskCostolo) with false complaints and accusations with no evidence until he caves just to shut them up. That’s exactly what happened to @Gus_807 and others. It’s the un-hidden leftist method: Lie And Lie Loudly. Read the rest of this entry »
Charles Johnson’s hatred of Ronald Reagan continues to be on full display. He is angry at R.S. McCain’s post ripping into Charles Johnson’s talking points on Reagan and Apartheid. Rather than admit that his allegations that Reagan supported Apartheid and forced Mandela to ally with Castro were false, he goes on the attack via Twitter.
You wingnuts retweeting @rsmccain‘s idiotic post about me “denouncing Reagan?” You should have heard what I said about Reagan in the 1980s.

Charles is just a smear merchant and is not a paradigm of deep thinking.
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.
