Charles Johnson Seems To Be Seemingly Awesome (or so it seems).

That seems to be some serious Johnson babble fodder above.

Charles seems to be seeming to say something seemingly brilliant, but it also seems that he’s only seeming to say so. Seems to me that that (((huggy))) response tweet seems just like something someone would say whose initials are “Charles Johnson.”

Charles, please seem to be sentient.

Killgore’s Midnight Run & Charles Johnson’s Foray Into Astroturfing: 10th Anniversary

The following is a repost from 18 September 2016.

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.

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.

On 9 September 2005, Charles Johnson Was Outraged About The Winning Entry (Out Of 5K Submissions) For The Flight 93 Memorial In Pennsylvania.

[Source.]

Seems we covered that one a long time ago, and got a friendly visit from conspiracy monger Alec Rawls. Damned if I can find it, but so what. The Great Design Conspiracy was pure crap, and was debunked by numerous sources. The natural topography was a crescent (possibly an ancient meteor impact crater) and most of the submitted designs for the memorial kept the existing terrain intact.

Even the moderators started laughing at the hired conspiracy theorists.

Maybe one of these days I’ll find the Bunk/Rawls debate, but it’s not going to happen tonight.

Pony Up Chuck.

Click it, Charles.


The 1979 Johnson vs. The 2019 Johnson

The Pages’ “Do I Believe In You” made No. 84 on Billboard’s Top 100 Singles list in 1979. Charles didn’t last long with that band either, and his levis look very uncomfortable. That might explain something.

The Little Green Footballs Wiki page has been edited from the last time I perused it, and now includes these links:

Allegations of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment

  • R. J. Smith, writing in Los Angeles Magazine, stated that LGF is a “dysfunctional mix of beautiful photos Johnson takes on coastal bike rides and constitutionally protected hate speech” which “believes all Muslims are terrorists until proven innocent.”[56]
  • Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) called Little Green Footballs “a vicious, anti-Muslim hate site” and says that the FBI has “investigated several threats of physical harm against Muslims posted by Little Green Footballs readers”.[3]
  • Columnist Antonia Zerbisias has described LGF as a “virulently anti-Muslim/Arab website”.[57]

“It’s like somebody got to him” —Andrew Breitbart

Any guesses on who knocked on Charles’ kitchen door at 3AM? Nah. Didn’t think so.


In Charles’ World, The Sky Is Johnson.

C’mon, Icaroid. Who’s paying you to post teh stoopid?

 


TSIAFU – The Tao of Charles Johnson

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.
