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.
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…

Oh, shut up about Pam Geller. She’s equivalent to Nazis? How do you reach adulthood with that level of blind їdiocé, Charles? On Thanksgiving? Bet you’re a fun person to be around during holiday get-togethers with family (and friends, if you still have any).
At least there’s some funny on the thread:
What’s the percentage of sites that load faster? 69%?
Bonus: Some wag threadbombed the Pamtrum Convo already.
Recently, Charles Johnson added a new blogclogging feature to Little Green Footballs, and apparently the intended results haven’t born fruit. The purpose is to allow the Lizard Lappers to spam Twitter with unfounded inanities in order to appear to be a larger number of imbeciles than they actually are. It’s an automated form of stealth astroturfing.
Well, Charles, we can play the same game. For every Tweet you post, we can post a Tweet that refutes your assertion that an AirCav hat is part of the uniform of the Confederate States of America. We may post a picture of a menuboard, or the State Flag of Tennessee, or your specious claim that Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner’s throbbing .jpeg was actually your own. Perhaps we may post something else, so that everyone reads your racist screed against Oliver Willis and your well deserved smackdown. Maybe we’ll just post something innocuous and innocent from Little Green Footballs, like this:
“Rural America can go fuck themselves.” That pretty much sums up Charles Johnson’s Little Green Hate Site these days.
LGF2.0, aka The Blogmocracy, had already left a welt on the soft underbelly of Little Green Footballs, if only by existing and attracting ex-lizards who’d had enough of Charles Johnson’s fascist blogging style:
Yes, you can post comments and opinions freely here unless I disagree with them, and I won’t tell you when you’ve crossed the line or where the line is until you’re gone.
Ludwig Van Quixote was Charles Johnson’s darling when he penned an LGF Tutorial for new “hatchlings” and gave his assessment of “The Stalkers” without having any idea who or what he was writing about. Here it is in its entirety.
Some oddness showed up in my email bag recently. Twitter wants me to follow these guys, while at the same time they’re trying to vaporize their accounts.
Not knowing which account is legit, I went to the source, Charles Johnson. At last report he’s got 89.7% of the Free World blocked, including me, while the other Charles Johnson doesn’t, and the latter no longer has a Twitter account at all.

I see you’ve been sent to #TwitterGulag repeatedly but I’m having a tough time sussing your current Twitter handle. I see several claiming to be you, and I’m scratching my head. On one hand it makes sense to have sock accounts, but in this case they seem to be posting all at once, to either hide you from Twitter or to troll your followers by false flag tweets.
Are you are promoting the #iamchuck socks to mock Twitter, or is the deception coming from somewhere else, like the Little Green Footballs crowd?

I’m not on Twitter but other people are making handles for me and I support it.
So what the Chuck does this mean?
It’s a legitimate question. It means that the raging furball Charles F. Johnson is busy fighting sock puppets, finding nazis under his futon and muslim terrorists only in the Little Green Footballs Archives, while the GotNews Charles C. Johnson doesn’t give a magical jazzy ponytail about it.
Since CFJ doesn’t read here, our guess is he’ll keep up his inane petulant attacks without having a clue. Rock on, Barry.
In 2007, Charles Johnson was all over the 2008 Presidential campaign, cranking out posts like a kindergartner on a 3-day glucose bender with a mouth full of wheat paste and safety scissors. Everyone breathlessly awaited each brilliant assessment of the candidates, and we weren’t disappointed.

The first link leads to Yahoo News (it’s dead now).
The second “Update” was a headline lifted verbatim from HotAir & Allahpundit:
The CNN YouTube freak show debate; Update: Private jet show of hands video added; Update: Biden tells gun owner he “needs help”; Update: I’ll meet with Castro, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, says Obama
Charles Johnson blocked thread comments from public view on that post a long time ago, but the BRC has ways of resurrecting his hidden/memory-holed files. There was only one comment out of 510 posted by Charles Johnson on that thread, and here it is:
A couple months later, Johnson posted this:
Here’s the YouTube video, as appropriate today as it was in 2007.
“There’s medical evidence that Hillary Clinton is a man.” That’s a bit of a stretch, but apparently Johnson found it credible and linked to it anyway. One year later, the metamorphosis was complete:
Apparently Charles IS down with this:
That’s former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau on the left, and he thinks Donald Trump is “gross.”
Keep it real, Charles. Can’t wait until you jump on the Bernie bus and blow out the rear tires.
