Charles F. Johnson:

My, how times have changed.


There’s a new Sheriff in town and Charles Johnson doesn’t like it.


That’s Sheriff David A. Clarke and he accepted an appointment to the Department of Homeland Security. Here he is in action, smacking the crap out of Don Lemon about #BlackLivesMatter:

Unfortunately, Charles Johnson sees the appointment of Sheriff Clarke as a “Jesus F*ng Christ” moment.

What’s not being widely reported is that Sheriff Clarke is a Democrat, but Charles Johnson doesn’t like him because of, um, something. (The late Andrew Breitbart suspected it, but could never prove it.) Keep pretending, Charles. You’re getting more transparent by the hour.

Let’s talk about peckerwoods.

On Mothers’ Day, Charles Johnson posted nothing in tribute to his deceased mother (or anyone elses’ mother for that matter). It’s no surprise as he’s never been gracious or warm to his feminine benefactors for reasons only known to himself, so let’s see what he allowed on his Little Green Footblog yesterday. Didn’t take long to find this:

Yeah. That’s awesome. An LGF aficionado claims street cred for someone he never met, his parents never met, and who fucked up big time during the War Between The States. Look up Brigadier-General Peter F. Bacon for yourselves. He got pantsed. He lived to tell about it, died in 1900, but so what.

Charles Johnson and his flying monkeys have no concept of history or historical context. Now update your gravitar image, Charles, so we don’t confuse you with Maxine Waters.

[Update: The obituary and grave marker for Brigadier General Peter F. Bacon can be found here (h/t  rightymouse).]


Johnson’s Trigger Monkey Post of the Day – FBI Director James Comey is Dismissed

That’s the headline on Little Green Footballs, and as expected, Charles Johnson completely misrepresents the story. Here’s the letter of dismissal President Trump sent to FBI Director James Comey today.


Johnson’s response to this was obviously fed to him by others hoping for an LGF trigger monkey post, as the MSM also seems to be focusing on the second paragraph while ignoring the first.

“Trump’s pink slip to Comey says ‘I am not under investigation’ — which is totally false.”

– Charles Johnson 9 May 2017

and

“Here’s some more jaw-dropping information: they’re trying to claim Comey was fired over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. I seriously doubt that.”

– Charles Johnson 9 May 2017

Johnson linked to a twitter account that posted barely legible letters (from Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein) that Trump referenced in his decision to replace James Comey.

Rosenstein’s analysis is damning, as it names names of those who believe that Comey was way out of line and breached protocol, including former Attorney General Eric Holder.

It’s not a partisan attack, Charles, it’s an attack on Comey’s apparent disregard for law, ethics and protocol due to political bias. Here’s a six-page downloadable .pdf that Johnson (and many others) didn’t bother to read [via]:

Charles, you’ve turned your website into inane clickbait bullshit. Now update your avatar.


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?


“This is NOT ‘religious liberty.’ It’s a roadmap to theocracy.” – Charles Johnson

So Charles Johnson doesn’t like a Presidential Executive Order that does nothing other than to reaffirm the 1st Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…

Charles, you’re the Bishop of Bloviation, with a capital Blow. Pheeew.


Alexa Talks About Little Green Footballs

Once in a while it’s kinda fun to see how Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs stats are doing, and Alexa turned up an interesting aberration in the decline.


The image above has been chopped and channeled and lowered and louvered for clarity (and a little bit of ventilation) but the graphs and data from Alexa are sound and legit as of 1 May 2017.

What happened in January likely had to do with the Presidential Inauguration, as a lot of people (including me) wanted to watch Charles Johnson’s meltdown, but the views should have dropped off shortly after. Then there’s that bizarre spike mid-February, and it took until late April for the LGF Decline to resume. Johnson has fudged his view stats in the past, so perhaps he got caught at it again and was busted by an extraneous algorithm. Search engines don’t give him much traffic as he’s got little original content and he’s got most bot crawlers blocked. Not only that, but LGF hasn’t been a “news aggregator site” for years, because these days it’s all about “clickbait.” Here’s the kicker:

95 percent of all websites load faster than Johnson’s Little Green Footballs.

Nice work, Charles.
