LGF News Values

When Charles Johnson shouts 'Breaking' you can be pretty damn sure that whichever MSM news item has caught his attention is not going to be a case of terrorism but a hoax (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=24239) or a crude nationalist prank (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=24407).

However, when there is a real incident of 'breaking' news (such as a gunman walking into a crowded mall and shooting dead half a dozen people) but it doesn't involve Muslims or terrorism, then you can bet your bottom dollar Charles isn't going to be 'breaking' it.

UPDATE: Charles has now got round to posting about the Utah shooting. Why? Because there's a possibility there could be a Muslim angle to the story (the shooter was from Bosnia, a Muslim-majority ex-Yugoslav republic). How much more transparent is Charles going to get in his racism? Note that he has yet to post on the incident that happened on the same day in Philadelphia, in which four people died...

Uh...that's because it's not about crime, or he would also have posted about the two kidnapped boys.

There are other sites for that.

One subject of LGF is about terrorism.

If it was so news worthy - why don't you post about the mall shooting?

Because it's not about LGF.

You do understand?

Why don't you tell us what LGf is about then?

So what is this incident about?

cokane said...

Islam is The religion of peace, that being said, the hate-mongers and racist shills for lunacy are alive and well at LGF

What happened here and what happened to me last year should be a warning not to go unheeded. The jihad is already in the U.S. and... another 9/11 attack is imminent. I had to to sacrifice my family, my past lifestyle, my businesses to be where I am (don't ask, I can't tell you) and safe at last from the Muslim maniacs who have done thier damage to me and my family. This is a warning to all of you: DON'T BELIEVE A WORD WHAT YOUR POLITICIANS SAY...THE U.S. WILL BE HIT AGAIN WITH THE BLESSINGS OF THE U.N.

G-d bless and take up arms against the jihad...it is in your hands Lizards and Americans


this is the type of hate that Charles and his ilk endorse...no wonder the rest of the world despises the "Great Satan" USA

I'm glad Charles posted on this so that we can learn from lizards such as #216 InklingBooks that:

Many of us would say that self-defense trumps a pointless, hide under the table and hope he doesn't shoot me" cowardice like that displayed by the students at Columbine.

Got that? The Columbine students were cowards. What a charming group of people.

Anonymous said...

Jeebus! The fact that Charles only reported it when it turns out the gunman was of Bosnian origin proves LGFW's point doesn't it? He wilfully ignores outrages unless there's the slightest chance of a 'Muslim' angle.

Do you think this will be mentioned on LGF:

QFT!
since the kid is supposedly a bosnian muslim refugee , there is a possible terrorism connotation to it. boefore the muslim connection it was considered a psycho shooting, now it may have more conotations AFAIK.

As for Islam being the religion of peace, like christianity it's own history disproves that title. but go ahead and brown-nose the imans if you want to. MEMRI proved long ago that fatwas calling for death do not equate to a "religion of peace".

yodaking said...

I just did, it's about terrorism - specifically the sort of terrorism pravalent today - Islamic radical terrorism.

hahahahhha oohhh the irony here is greatokay yodaking, now that johnsons IS reporting on it... whaddya say? oh right, because a muslim committed it, it's now "terrorism"

Yes there is irony here. My point is still logically consistent - I said that LGF is about terrorism - specifically Islamic terrorism, if it turns out that this guy was motivated by Islam - then it *DOES* become consistent with LGF....and is worthy of a post. Get it?

***As for the racists idiotic comments on LGF***

Kids, basic lesson of the net - I can go on any board, left or right of the political spectrum, and dig up idiotic, racist, facist, communist, marxists, comments.

It's not an accomplishment or a revelation - there are idiots on both sides of the aisle. That's the unfortunate truth of a public comment board.

Case in point? On this very website - one poster says that Ronald Reagen was a white supremacist racist that hates blacks, another poster on the very same thread supported racism as long as it's about your own race.

Take a look yourself

https://www2.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5940511&postID=8471511551737902033

But do you see me saying that the owner of this site believes these things? No...because I have the intellectual honesty to understand what some idiot of the virtual street decides to post does not automatically reflect what the owner of the blog believes or supports.

It's basic net 101 kids.

Christian Jihad said...

To YodaKing:

LGF removes all racist comments that are racist against Jews, Christians, Whites, etc.

Only racist comments about Muslims are allowed to stand.

There's your "net 101"

cokane said...

link me to some racist comments on "lefty blogs" please.

otherwise, admit you're full of shit

calling reagan a "white supremacist" is not a racist comment. Perhaps it is wrong and ignorant, but you can't say it's racist. You're dumbass comments about obama didn't even make sense, so you need to try again.

You're equating soemone calling reagan a "white supremacist" and obama's "i was wary of white people" with people on LGF who call for the extermination of all arabs.

Why you can't see the difference is ridiculous and it makes you look like an idiot.

yodaking said...

Hey "Christian Jihad"

What's this then? (it was pointed out on this very site)

"#2 freakagriep 2/10/2007 04:05PM PST

He'll won't be the first black dude to get his butt beat!"

LOL

My pleasure - it's extremely easy -

Here is a query on the term "Redneck" on daily kos

105 posts in the last two weeks calling people 'rednecks'

http://www.dailykos.com/search?offset=0&old_count=30&string=redneck&type=comment&sortby=relevance&count=30&wayback=20160&wayfront=0

Or is racism okay as long as it's directed toward whites?

calling reagan a "white supremacist" is not a racist comment.

You're right, and that was an example of an idiot (one of my groups) why did you ignore the comment where it said racism is okay as long as it's about your own race? Holocaust denial and anti-semetism from Jews is okay I guess from your perspective.

You're equating soemone calling reagan a "white supremacist" and obama's "i was wary of white people"

Nope, my point was any idiot or racist is allowed to post on comment boards (as I illustrated above) I don't think Obama is a racist, I just pointed out that if a GOP member said he didn't trust blacks it would be front page news.

Do I believe there are racists on LGF? Yes

Do I believe there are racists on Daily Kos? Yes

Do I believe ALL people that read LGF and Daily Kos are racist?

Nope

with people on LGF who call for the extermination of all arabs.

Of course any decent minded person would reject this notion, if you can show me where Charles said we should exterminate all Arabs - you would have substance to this point.

Why you can't see the difference is ridiculous and it makes you look like an idiot.

I think a person that can't acknowledge that public comments on any board, on any side of the political spectrum will contain inflamatory, racist, idiotic statements is deluding themselves...who is the bigger idiot is up to anyone observing these boards.

yodaking said...

Oh 'cokane' I forget this one, where the owner of this site calls Charles a Redneck.

http://lgfwatch.blogspot.com/2007/01/charles-sinking.html

I guess racism toward white people is okay.

It's when you say somebody is acting like a nigger, chink, kike, or beaner that you qualify as a racist?

But again, 'cokane', I'm just a racist idiot right? I suggest you stop doing your namesake and achieve some clarity before you respond.

yodaking said...

haha

well...well...well

we now find out that our crazy utah shooter often attended Al-Noor Mosque...a block from the site of the shooting

-Salt Lake Tribune

but wait, there is more...Al-Noor Mosque is the same Mosque is the same Mosque of Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, a Marine deserter who claimed he had been kidnapped, then fled to Lebanon.

http://www.pownetwork.org/gulfII/hassoun.htm

but hey nothing of this matters...LGF is just about racism against Arabs....right?

What is "Occupation" said...

let's see a moslem walks into a mall in UTAH murders 5..

the entire nation's news refuse to say he is a moslem..

yep...

Awake and drinking the coffee said...

Yodaking, two thumbs up. Way to debate with facts! I've been trying to register on LGF for almost 2 years now and can't seem to catch it when it's open. Charles reports facts and refuses to "swallow" whatever the MSM is dishing out. They have deliberately lied to the American people and continue to run terrorist propaganda. But, since none of you actually believe our country is in danger and we are at WAR, you'll dismiss my comments as being "another right-wing nutjob".

MJ said...

1. There's a huge difference between saying somebody reacts like a 'redneck' (which is not racist) and somebody reacts like a Jew. To argue that proves that you can't distinguish between genuine racial slurs and insults based on a perceived lack of education and breeding...you should really avoid discussions and using sharp objects if you can't manage that.

2. "Charles reports facts and refuses to "swallow" whatever the MSM is dishing out."

Charles regurgitates the AP and Reuters coverage and then puts his own ideological slant on it. He's a wannabe hack.

3. It is no surprise that both LGF'ers fail to comment on the point of the post which is a tragedy such as this one isn't a tragedy to certain parts of the Arab hating blogosphere unless they can dig up the alleged religion of the shooter. New media? More like new lynchmob.

Right, you believe it's not racist because it's directed toward white people. That was my point, thanks for reiterating it.

If you still don't think it's directed toward white people. Here is definitions of "redneck" from Dictionary.com

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/redneck

Notice every definition clearly lists race of "white"

you should really avoid discussions and using sharp objects if you can't manage that.

hmmm...did you get cut with that?

Charles regurgitates the AP and Reuters coverage and then puts his own ideological slant on it. He's a wannabe hack.

Ahh...as opposed to this site regurgitating LGF coverage and putting it's own idelogical slant on it?

It is no surprise that both LGF'ers fail to comment on the point of the post which is a tragedy

LGF is about terrorism - specifically Islamic terrorism, if it turns out that this guy was motivated by Islam - then it *DOES* become consistent with LGF....and is worthy of a post. LGF does not post every tragedy/crime that occurs in the world. Only those motivated by Islam. There is not shortage that.
