Little Green Sheep: A Telling Update

Nothing is more predictable than the herd instinct. Despite their insistence that they make up their own minds, many people are in fact, as psychologists say, highly suggestible, and subject to peer pressure, so that if any trend becomes dominant within the particular herd with which they identify, the average person follows the trend without […]

Profiles in Narcissism: Charles Johnson Blinded by His Own Self-Righteousness

Among the books I most often recommend are The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy (Thomas Sowell, 1995) and The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations (Christopher Lasch, 1979). Thoughtful readers familiar with both books will understand how the phenomenon described by Sowell — liberals […]

Humor-Deficient Charles Johnson Sides With #Occupy Movement vs. NYPD UPDATE: NYPD Investigates Occupier’s Twitter Death Threat Against Police

Raised during the Cold War — when my uncles and cousins and neighbors were fighting the Viet Cong and the NVA, when American troops stood on guard against that doomsday moment when the Red Army decided to make a try for the Fulda Gap, when any blink of an eye might bring down a worldwide […]

Busted: Why Is LGF’s Charles Johnson Now Embracing Louis Farrakhan?

When Charles Johnson went wacko and began purging commenters at his Little Green Footballs blog, he purged some of the most clever “Lizards” whose participation had once made LGF a must-read for many. Among the purged were those who formed Diary of Daedalus and The Blogmocracy, which today join forces to expose how CJ’s pro-Obama turn […]

Who Is James Wolcott? And Why Would Anybody Want to Know? Or Care?

Pamela Geller’s commentary about Sandra Fluke has caused a conniption on the part of — you guessed, didn’t you? — Charles Johnson. Mr. Jazzy McBikeshorts then got into a Twitter colloquy with the infamously boring James Wolcott, who decided to bring my name into it. A commenter informed me about this, prompting my Twitter reply: […]

Andrew Breitbart in CPAC Video:
‘This Is the Charles Johnson Special’

Thanks to I Own the World for this memorable video moment in which Andrew Breitbart poses for a photo with Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, featuring a surprise cameo appearance: People who get the joke are laughing their asses off. Everybody else is wondering, “Who is Charles Johnson?” UPDATE: Professor Reynolds gets the joke. And […]

An Idiot Obsessed With Commenters

What can we say about Charles Johnson’s increasingly desperate efforts to simulate relevance? We will now examine (a) what happened, (b) what Charles Johnson wants us to believe happened, and (c) what the discrepancy between (a) and (b) tells us about Charles Johnson’s pathetic idiocy. OK, what happened: Fox News posted a story on its Web […]

Saint Charles, Martyr of LGF

Because there are so many important things to blog about — hey, CPAC starts Thursday — I seldom take notice of Charles Johnson’s idiocy anymore, but His Weirdness has once again been pursuing his sick obsession with Pamela Geller. And when Donald Douglas of American Power called him out for it, Charles predictably played the […]

Give Thanks to … Charles Johnson?

The terminal stage of narcissistic personality order: Happy Thanksgiving to all LGF readers. On this day, I’d like to thank 2007 me, who woke up and realized that the “counter-jihad” bloggers were in truth a bunch of bigots and fascists. And I’d also like to thank the 2009 me, who realized that the Republican Party […]

He Used to Be Somebody

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH … BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH … BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH … It was a little less than two years ago that he “parted ways.” Can anyone remember the last time he wrote anything important? While I was writing this, Ali Akbar called to talk about his success with NotMittRomney.com. Ali is now […]

Pamela Geller Vindicated, Again, While the LGF Auto-Beclownment Continues

Donald Douglas at American Power has a post about how LGF’s Charles Johnson bullied a Forbes writer into removing a reference in her article to an incontrovertible fact: Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik cited Little Green Footballs in his “manifesto.” Breivik linked LGF 20 times, mostly while quoting anti-jihad blogger “Fjordman,” a former LGF commenter. […]

CAIR Loves ‘Em Some LGF: ‘Glad to See That Chaz Is Now Marketing the Caliphate’

Doug Ross: “It’s come to this: CAIR now tweeting links to LGF.” “Breivik was deeply involved in the ‘counter-jihad’ blogosphere and UK far right groups . . . Breivik boasted online of his discussions with the English Defence League (the anti-Muslim group praised and supported by US bloggers Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller), and with […]
