Wow. Now Charles Johnson is going after The Gray Lady, aka, The New York Times. Never mind that the NYT states the obvious, that people all over the world are fed up with squishy politicos who allow islamic terrorism to proliferate by rolling their eyes and saying “Can’t we all just get along?” or “We’re all for diversity, no matter the cost,” or more often, “Fuck it. We’re caving.”
Terrorists are essentially cowards, yet they’re still dangerous. The political left seems to think that giving them RC Cola and Little Debbie snack cakes will get them to the poker table, while the political right knows that an enemy won’t negotiate until he’s shoved face down into the sandbox and forced to eat worms.
So, Charles. Would you rather hug a jihadist or make him eat worms? If you’d rather pass on embarrassing yourself, we’ll provide one or more of your archived answers and repost them for you.
Something flew up Charles Johnson’s HooHah recently that got him to post a series of Tweets attacking the late Michael Crichton. Unfortunately, Mr. Crichton isn’t around to defend himself, so he’s an easy target for Mr. Hypocrisy.
Michael Crichton was a successful formulaic novelist who based his themes on research. Many of his novels had similar characters thrown into similar situations with similar challenges, yet they were entertaining. “Jurassic Park” may be his most famous work. My favorite was “Eaters of the Dead,” a retelling of Beowulf with the hypothesis that Grendel was not a dragon but a tribe of mountain Neanderthals carrying torches to drive out the invaders.
In “State of Fear” Crichton used his typical formula for a fast-paced novel, but the Appendices were where the meat was. He included graphs and links to data sites (including NASA) to show that Global Warming was little but promoted hysteria based upon false assumptions. Shortly after SoF was published, NASA took down the referenced links, and subsequent edited copies of the book deleted reference to them. Someone got pantsed.
Now back to Charles Johnson. Why is he suddenly bothering with a novel from ten years ago? He fights with a dead man, offers no evidence to contradict Crichton’s sources, and remains an ignorant blowhard. Charles, your a mess.
Update: Charles was indeed a fan of Michael Chrichton, as evidenced by his comment on 4 March 2007:
Okay, Charles, let’s go. You posted it.
Yeah. Now what did you leave out of that brilliant piece of cut-n-paste “journalism”, Charles? Did you even read the article from the Washington Post? Did you miss the facts? The innuendo?
During an interview with the Washington Post editorial page staff in March 2016, Trump identified Page, who had previously been an investment banker in Moscow, as a foreign policy adviser to his campaign. Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks later described Page’s role as “informal.”
Page has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in his dealings with the Trump campaign or Russia.
“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Every President in US history, including President Trump, has employed experts with experience dealing with foreign trade partners. Hell, the United States probably wouldn’t even exist had it not been for Franklin successfully negotiating with DuPont.
Why would the Obama Administration direct the FBI to investigate legal business practices? Okay, that’s a rhetorical question because the answer is obvious.
Does the FBI know that Charles Johnson threatened people with a Mossberg? I’ll bet they do.
Charles, you’re a mess.
P.S. “Tick Tock” is a threat meme used by Anonymous and other splinter vigilante groups. You playing footsie with them again, Charles, or did you make amends with your ex-buddy Barrett Brown?
Not much original content found at The Swamp these days – it’s all cut and paste echotropes from the leftwing feed troughs. It used to be fun to see what the most downdinged comments were, but since downdings are now verboten, those gems are rare, and all we have left to check the pulse of the Greatest Blog In History are the most updinged posts. They produce similar results, at least for the purposes of our own mockery, like this inanity:
Yeah, that’s what Little Green Footballs is all about these days. No sentient discussion, no original thought, all echos and unsubstantiated political tropes and stereotypes. Congratulations, Charles. You’ve completely purged your website of any recognizable form of intellect.
Now update your avatar.
The largest dinosaur footprint found to date was discovered in Australia recently. This previously unknown species has been named Mannulus Cauda Johnsonia for obvious reasons.
The answer is NO.
Charles Johnson never saved anything, including his credibility, self-respect and his own blog. Almost six years ago he beclowned himself in defense of Rep. Anthony Weiner, and we all know how that turned out.
Recent reports suggest that Weiner‘s proxy wife Huma Abedin “is working hard” to get them back together, now that the political heat is off. I suspect that her husband of convenience is doing the *ahem* same.
Meanwhile, Charles’ original Tweet is still functioning, unlike his neocortex.
Yeah, that classic deserves many more retweets than it’s received. Now about that dated avatar, Charles…
