Remember When…


Yeah, we all saw it coming, Charles @Green_Footballs Johnson. We also saw how you abused the Twitter protocols, and how you deleted all contents from your dormant @Lizardoid account. We also know why you did so. How ’bout reposting some of the vile stuff that appeared on your account, explain why you deleted it, and justify why it’s still open, Charles?

Two-faced unapologetic slime.

Military Strategist Charles Johnson Opines on Afghanistan Strategy: Let’s Get Out and Let the REAL Bloodshed Begin.

One upding on teh ignancy. Cool.

Charles F. Johnson is now a self-proclaimed military strategist who is regularly included in convo with the CIC and the JCS and apparently believes that the US Military takes high-school grads and ships them to killing fields in the outskirts of Kabul. Never mind that Johnson can’t locate Kabul on a map and believes that Afghanistan is one great poppy field that leads to the Emerald City in the Land of Oz, complete with flying monkeys and a little green witch who sold coffee in the 70s.

Charles. This is about exterminating Islamo-Facists who want to kill you, us and others, and to do it as far away from Culver City California as possible. (If you don’t believe it, see how long your Magical Jazzy Ponytail lasts in Ryahdh.)

Meanwhile, Charles Johnson threw this unedited comment down the Memory Hole a long while ago under this awesome graphic header:

John,

It’s a bit more complicated than that. For all practical purposes, Bin Laden is the Taliban; he financed their government to the tune of $100 million, and used their country as a training ground for terrorist attacks. It’s a very clear example of a nation that supports and harbors terrorists.

And McElvoy makes this point as well:

Action against Afghanistan is a necessary pre-condition of a wider campaign against terrorism.

“Action against Afghanistan is a necessary pre-condition of a wider campaign against terrorism.” – Charles F. Johnson 7 November 2001

Yep. There’s the nut.


On 15 April 2001 Charles Johnson claimed to be a victim of Islamic Extremism and he lived to tell about it.

[Link]

Off by only a month, Charles Johnson claimed credit for spotting local jihadists. He knew what was coming down because his followers told him so, and Johnson always takes the credit for the work of others.

Johnson’s anecdote precedes the horrors of 911 by five months, yet his antennae were already twitching. At the time of the post, Little Green Footballs had little to do with politics (let alone islamic jihad) and a lot to do with bicycling and low-end computer programming. Back then, few people knew or cared who he was, kinda like now.

On the other hand, Charles Johnson has been shown to manipulate and edit his posts after-the-fact, so it’s possible that he changed the posting date to make it appear he was prescient. I don’t think that’s the case here – He was spooked by the event.  Johnson was 48 years old at time of posting, old enough to figure it out.

What’s Important to Charles F. Johnson on Memorial Day 2017?

Even in 2003, way before Little Green Footballs was on anyone’s radar, Charles Johnson was paranoid and couldn’t trust his own few commenters to police themselves on a Memorial Day weekend, so he shut off comments on LGF for four days.

Not sure what “Deathberg” warned him about, as the comments have been blocked from public view. Five years later, Charles posted this:

That was Charles Johnson in 2008, and a Memorial Day post is good enough for me. Then I found this in the BRCCJ Comments Archive:

So I Googled it.

And I found this. The following day, Charles Johnson posted a bitchrant that Google didn’t properly acknowledge Memorial Day in their logo.

So what’s the point of all this?
Charles Johnson’s 2017 Memorial Day Post.

Turns out the guy hated muslim infiltration and was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and the POTUS didn’t say enough himself, at least according to Charles Johnson.

Charles, your spittle is dribbling down your chins.


Exposing Poonawalla’s Johnson

Fetched from the RetroBin:

A few years later (2009) Jihad Watch posted this:

I first encountered Aziz Poonawalla during my dialogue of the deaf with the spitting, sputtering hateblogger Dean Esmay, as Poonawalla was and may still be a contributor to his blog. Poonawalla and I also have had several unpleasant exchanges, during which — as you can see if you read them — he didn’t demonstrate an overwhelming commitment of honesty or integrity. —Robert Spencer

Aziz Poonawalla is an anti-semitic muslim propagandist who’s been at it for a while, but that was then and this is now, at least according to Charles Johnson, and something happened. Now they’re best buds. Read the rest of this entry »


LGF Stats Inspection Time

Once in a while it’s kinda fun to check on the Decline of Little Green Footballs. Remember this one from 19 February 2010?

About a year later, on 9 February 2011, we posted this:

110209-webworth-lgf

The Webworth.info site is now defunct as far as we can tell, but now there’s WEBUKA. Here’s the February 2017 estimate for LGF:

170220-webuka-estimator

GAH! What a graphic abomination, and there’s not much we can do to fix it. On the other hand, the estimated numbers are relevant. In just six years, Charles Johnson’s website value has decreased in value by approximately 75%. So what does Alexa have to say about all this?

Since we last checked in with Alexa, it had been purchased by Amazon and a lot of the freebee stats are no longer available without a pay-to-play subscription. So what. This is all we need.

alexa-stats-170220a

What happened in September 2016 to drive down his rank, and why did he get a bump once Trump was inaugurated? I don’t know, Babs, but I do know this: Little Green Footballs is STILL slower to load than 2/3 of all websites tracked by Alexa. Go figger.

SitePrice estimates the value of a blog differently, and comes up with this number:

170221-siteprice

It also provides a graphic of the top 5 search terms that lead to Little Green Footballs:

No real surprises in that subliminal goatse, but how does “A. J. Delgado” make it to the Top Five with only 5%? Something smells like your socks, Charles.

On the Anniversary of Charles Johnson’s Foray Into Astroturfing: Killgore’s Midnight Run

160913-charles-on-brietbart-astroturfing

There he goes again, fighting a dead man.

Andrew Breitbart enhanced Charles Johnson’s blogging career by introducing him to the players who in turn promoted Little Green Footballs and escorted Johnson into the Big Tent with fanfare. Instead of walking away with dignity, Charles chose the path of the pissant. Not only did he shun his former mentors, he turned on them, created and promoted lies, reposted invented unsubstantiated claims, and astroturfed his benefactors. Then, like a true coward, he still plays the victim when others call him on his own hypocrisy.

On 13 September 2016, Charles tried once again to erase his own history of astroturfing, but let’s roll back the clock to 18 September 2009.

Seven years ago today The Flying Monkeys of Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs began an astroturf campaign against HotAir. With no evidence to back up Johnson’s accusation that HotAir was a racist website, LGF operative Killgore Trout paid them a visit while the moderators were asleep and provided the “evidence” himself by posting offensive racial comments and daring the moderators to delete them… beginning at 12:34AM and running to 2:01AM. You can read the full diatribe here, but here’s a snippet:

Killgore Rant Condensed

Killgore’s Midnight Run set a precedent for Little Green Footballs that was recognized throughout the political blogosphere, and the running joke was that if racist comments showed up on someone’s website it was due to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs.

Killgore 947
Killgore 965

Charles Johnson continuously accused Breitbart and others of not policing comments on their websites. Little Green Footballs typically garnered a couple of hundred comments, and Charles employed volunteer “Monitor Lizards” to do it for him. Breitbart’s “Big Journalism” had well over ten times the number of comments per post than Little Green Footballs, so it was impractical to expend the effort to review and/or edit all of them.

And Johnson’s astroturfing didn’t stop there.

Johnson holds the 2 of Clubs and four Post-It Notes, then claims he has 5 of a kind. The first liar never has a chance, Charles.
