On the wikipedia entry for LGF, you’ll find this:
Johnson has stated many times that he is disgusted with media coverage of the death of International Solidarity Movement activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Rafah, a town in theGaza Strip. Johnson disputes the ISM’s account, holding that Corrie was “trying to ‘protect’ a house used for drugs and weapons smuggling”. Johnson states:
Rachel Corrie was emphatically not a “peace activist”. She sided with terrorists and criminals, and advocated—in fact, was excited by—violence and mass murder.In support of this view, he has cited a diary entry from Corrie in which he claims that she expresses the view that Palestinian violence towards Israel is justifiable and laudable.
In posts about her on LGF, Johnson often features a photo of Corrie burning a hand-drawn American flag and surrounded by Palestinian children.
What the wiki editors leave out is the interesting story behind the term “Saint Pancake”, which originated on LGF and was a staple reference to Corrie (and the manner of her demise) for years after her death (it was an entry in the long-lost LGF Dictionary, and even the handle of an LGFer). It remains as one of the quintessential examples of the gall and dishonesty of Charles Johnson.
You see, rather than owning up to his culpability in popularizing the term and simply apologizing for it, Johnson instead denied any association, going so far as to state this at The Guardian:
Since not all of his lizardlappers follow him on Twitter, Charles made sure they saw his brilliant insightful comment by reposting it on Little Green Footboils. But what does it mean?
I don’t know, Babs, but I do know this. It’s time to poll the audience.
Have at it.

It’s been almost a year since we saw this:
Of course, the reason we do a lot of “screen-shotting” is because Charles has a tendency to make stuff disappear, perhaps more so than any other blogger on the web…
In any case, between then and now, we’ve seen the self-identified blog pacifist post endless threads taking unprovoked shots at Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Andrew Breitbart, Hot Air, and Gateway Pundit (just to name a few). So, already we can see that CJ’s statement there is pretty ridiculous.
As far as we’re concerned, however, teh Johnson has had to be a lot stealthier when it comes to the warfare. After all, he’s on record that he doesn’t visit our site. But for some reason, he knows an awful lot about what goes on. Let’s see what kind of things he’s done in the past year on offence and defense, and in reaction to us.
Bogus “tweet counters”. When we spread the word that Johnson’s the numbers used in his “retweet” boasts had nothing to do with retweets, he held a private thread, sent desperate messages to bit.ly, and eventually posted this:
(It didn’t work, and the “tweet counter” remains busted to this day).

This “compensation” crap makes me wonder if these people haven’t been taking lessons from Jesse Jackson and the rest of our Slavery Reparations crowd.
Well, Jackson did visit recently. It would not surprise me if the subject came up.

Ladies and gentlemen: Al Sharpton, the racist demagogue par excellence. He fits in beautifully.

Dennis Kucinich is insane.
Al Sharpton is worse. “In the Middle East, it’s not about terrorism.” Wow.
And Sharpton is getting a riotous ovation for these remarks.

I posted this because I had a feeling the LGF hordes would criticize the ads. I agree — they’re not very good. Invoking Horton is probably a bad idea.
The connections of Al Sharpton to the Kerry campaign should be drawn out; Sharpton is a dangerous man, and represents the looniest wing of the Dems. But it would have to be done more artfully than this, to avoid as much as possible the inevitable cries of racism.

re: #779 shiek al beif salami
IMHO, racism as an accusation against the United States is dead, dead, dead. A few racists may live here, but the country isn’t racist. That issue died once and for all last night, and anyone who keeps it going is a racist by definition.
Sorry, I don’t agree the issue has died. Al Sharpton is already ramping up to push even harder on his favorite race-baiting issues, and that’s the direction things are headed.

re: #528 Cosmo
Just as I do not judge Catholics against the yardstick of John Kerry, nor Baptists and Pentecostals based on Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson, I sincerely hope that, although both Skousen and Beck were/are LDS, that those who frequent this site do not judge the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints solely on their commentaries and opinions.
Nothing I’ve seen here, including Charles’s inherent fairness, would lead me to believe otherwise.
Absolutely not – I don’t judge all Mormons by Cleon Skousen, any more than I judge all Southerners by Robert Stacy McCain.

re: #32 hanoch
So you look at the Nancy Pelosis, Michael Moores, Al Frankens, Cindy Sheehans, Jimmy Carters and Al Sharptons of the world and you conclude that the left side of the political spectrum is where sanity and moderation exists? I can’t understand this.
As you’re a creationist, I wouldn’t expect you to agree.

Notice that American Renaissance can barely hide their contempt for Kevin Martin:
Kevin Martin was the next to speak. He opened by lamenting how difficult it is to be a Republican in the black community. He blamed most of the problems that blacks face on the fact that “self-appointed leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have conditioned blacks to believe in a culture of victimization that prevents them from ever taking responsibility for their own problems.
Nevertheless, Martin seemed to blame the media for most of the negative stereotypes about blacks. His speech was also full of the usual banalities, such as “we’re all members of one race: the human race,” etc. Nevertheless, Martin should be praised for rejecting the culture of victimhood that he described.
Their differences with Martin stem from the fact that they consider him to be genetically inferior to a white man. That’s why they sneer at his comment that the media are to blame for negative stereotypes — because to them, it’s Martin HIMSELF who is to blame, because that’s how black people are.
It’s a profoundly sick world view. This is why decent people shun the Jared Taylor crowd.
No, Charles. You’re not exempt from being called a racist. These days, nobody is,
Last time we checked (19 May 2019) Little Green Footballs was in adjustment mode after an inexplicable spike followed by a sharp decline in traffic. The Alexa graph seems to suggest that Charles’ drop in popularity has subsided somewhat, and now he’s gliding (instead of plummeting) downhill. Little Green Footblobs is at the lowest ranking since July 2018, and for comparison, LGF was within the 80,000 range in July 2014:
BTW, longtime LGF Lizard-Lapper Alouette aka @ViciousBabushka is on Day 16 in #TwitterGulag. If anyone has a screen cap of her offending Tweet, please forward it. Inquiring minds want to know.
UPDATE! WITHIN JUST HOURS OF THIS POSTING, ALEXA UPDATED THE LGF RANKING! HERE ARE THE CURRENT STATS:
So yesterday I decided to put on the waders and wander into The Swamp Of The Lizard Lappers to see how they celebrated Independence Day. I found no surprises. The place is a cesspool of irrational hatred.
[Hey, HappyWarrior, you’re an idiot, and Little Green Snotblobs is a great place to display your ignorance. It’s intuitively obvious to the casual observer that everything you know about Jefferson came from here.]
Then they went on to bash Ivanka Trump with photoshops. What that had to do with Independence Day is a non-sequitur, but they completely missed the irony of the image posted by “Gocart Mozart”:
Breaking News: The Pie Overlord, aka Alouette, aka @viciousbabushka is still suspended from Twitter. 😀
Charles Johnson wants Twitter to censor the President of the United States.
Here’s the copy:
Comment 9 in the thread:
If you click on the embedded links in that comment, or look for @viciousbabushka on Twitter, you get this:
What she posted that sent her to #Twittergulag is unknown.
Meanwhile, another long-time lizard-lapper, @teleskiguy, confirmed the suspension, called @Jack and @twittersupport assholes.
BONUS: Vicious Babushka (aka Alouette) created and posted these gems on Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs, and nobody on that blog saw anything offensive.
