Meanwhile, in California


We're a bit perplexed as to why a rabid cyclist and cycling fan like Charles Johnson, who posts breathless updates during -- and sometimes even after -- every single Tour de France, is choosing to ignore a world-class cross-country bicycle race that is taking place right in his own backyard.

Apparently an exciting bicycle race is only LGF-worthy if there are French people available to be humiliated.

He should also post about the flower growing...maybe about airplane technology? Perhaps he should posts topics on cooking?

oh wait....LGF is about Islamic Terrorism...I forgot.

This is nuts. You can't invent a motive from silence, impute that motive to CJ, and then criticize him on account of the motive you ascribed to him without evidence. A person can prove anything with that sort of "argument."

Case in point. You call this site LGF Watch. Yet you fail to comment on the majority of LGF's posts. From this fact one may reach one of "only" two conclusions.

(1) You tacitly agree with most of what CJ posts, and hence your quarrel with him is greatly outnumbered by your numerous points of agreement -- which you unjustly fail to indicate.

(2) You don't care about those other posts, and thus have a callous disregard for the victims, atrocities, and danger signs that he blogs. Wow, what kind of monster does that make you?

See how worthless this sort of argument from silence is?

johnson uses the "silence" argument you just mentioned anonymous on the "MSM" all the time. I think where he talks about the MSM ignoring the "religion" of a certain killer in Utah for example... but don't let facts get in the way of some good hypocrisy

Why do we not comment on every single thing Charles posts?

Because -- unlike Charles -- we have real jobs.

Cokane...MSM versus a partisan site....you do know the difference?

Would I expect this site to report on how to grow flowers? Nope because it's a partisan directed site.

MSM is supposed to be non-biased, inclusive and reportive of all facts....when LGF mentions that MSM likes to downplay Islamic Terrorism...like not mentioning a possible Islamic terror motive, or the fact the shooter attended the very same mosque that another traitor attended is disturbing.

LOL, Charles has over 1 million visitors a day, and makes enough money to support himself with his site....yet here you have this site that the owner devote a lot of time too...I wonder how much traffic/revenue LGF watch makes?

LGF Watch -- unlike LGF -- is a not-for-profit blog, and proud of it.

No one owns us. Who owns Charles? He's never said, which is yet another indication of his monumental hypocrisy, because he delights in exposing financial connections between the Daily Kos and the Democratic Party, to cite just one example.

Charles can only be a hypocrite if you can show proof that somebody 'owns' him, if you look at his site - it's easy to see where revenue comes from...banners.

hmm....let's see - one is for Wachovia bank, another for Volvo and finally Amazon.com.

I guess these companies are part of some anti-Islam conspiracy and not just involved with a banner company...

(evil laugh)

As I was saying in a post in another thread here - this blog comes off looking creepy, as though its owner has an unnatural interest in Mr. Johnson.

This one thread in particular stands out on that point.

Why on earth would you pick on the guy for bike riding?

I'd assume you dislike Johnson's political views, so why rag on him for his hobbies?

- Because you do so, it makes you look like you have a twisted, disturbed crush on the man.

As an aside:
you'd have to be blind not to notice how the main stream media is reluctant to mention that a Muslim is behind some crime or another.

The BBC was, for a while, refusing to use the word "terrorism" when reporting on Muslims blowing people up and was using other, more innocuous terminology.

Do people on the left honestly not see that there is a segment of the Muslim population that is violent?

There are Muslims out there who want all Americans dead (including liberals), and they cannot be bargained with.

Such Muslims are not interested in solving things via "diplomacy" or by talking - they just want us dead period.

You are so right. This is an absolute outrage! I find it hard to believe that a cyclist would ignore a race that is occurring in his own state. There has got to be more to this than meets the eye. In my opinion this is simply more proof that Charles Johnson is actually Satan. Thank you so much for your helpful, informative site.

That's a complete non sequitur.

Chuckles describes LGF as a diverse 'news' source covering all of his interests, and the evidence shows otherwise. Perhaps you can argue that he's not a hypocrite, but he's certainly a disingenuous bigot.

That's a complete non sequitur.

It is? Did you not read the whole thread? Somebody said Charles is a hypocrite because he is 'owned' how can this be a non-sequitor when nobody has yet to prove he is 'owned'??

Do you even know what non-sequitor means?

how has the evidence showed otherwise? Has LGF ever claimed not to be partisan? As for Charles being a bigot...what proof do you have?
