There are few more loathsome than those who promote hatred and ignorance for profit. Charles Johnson is one such with his Little Green Footballs websewer, brand-leader of Pajamas Media. Over the past few years, Johnson has collected a rabble of syncophantic followers who proudly and collectively refer to themselves as "Lizardoid Minions". They even have their own clothing line. Hiding behind a disclaimer on LGF, Johnson stokes his followers with an endless diet of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim cut-n-pastings sprinkled with sneering asides, the limit of his "creative" abilities. When not inculcating racism and bigotry, Johnson likes to parrot GOP talking points and heap praise on Bush.
In a faux-neutral post about the kidnapping of journalist (and presumed "leftist") Jill Carroll, Johnson knows exactly what to expect. The "minions" deliver. Example:

Whats her problem ? She went to Iraq on a "peace" mission to "help" victims abused by the american military...now the holy warriors dress her up as a muslima and want to martyr her...
What more could she ask for?
Jeez, Rachel Corrie would spit[spat] blood to be in her position...What an ingrate.
A few weeks ago, the "minions" celebrated the deaths of hundreds of Haaj pilgrims.

look forward to this every year.

IIRC, dying in Mecca is the best thing that can happen to a RoPer.

Latest novelty item: a burkha with footprints on it. Across the front it reads "I made the Hajj and all I got was this lousy burkha"
