Charles Johnson discovers polygamy

How many wives has Charles 'Code Monkey' Johnson got? We don't know, because he never tells us. But we do know that Charlies has discovered, via the NYT, a "serious problem" in the marital relationships of certain New Yorkers. It's polygamy, baby, the African variety. And in his oh-so-subtle style, CJ tells us this practice is going to usher in "the Dark Ages" (Africans, Dark Ages, geddit, nudge-nudge?) in the Big Apple. Ho, ho, ho.

Of course, in all the years Johnson's been blogging he has never, to our knowledge, written about polygamy as it is practised a lot closer to his California home. You see, when polygamy is practised by Africans, it's obviously a problem. When it's practised by whites, it ain't. That's LGF for you.

P.S.: For all we know CJ is in a monogamous relationship with Stinky Beaumont. But we're not asking and we're not telling...

The myth of Muslim support for terror
By Kenneth Ballen, Fri Feb 23, 3:00 AM ET
WASHINGTON - Those who think that Muslim countries and pro-terrorist attitudes go hand-in-hand might be shocked by new polling research: Americans are more approving of terrorist attacks against civilians than any major Muslim country except for Nigeria.
The survey, conducted in December 2006 by the University of Maryland's prestigious Program on International Public Attitudes, shows that only 46 percent of Americans think that "bombing and other attacks intentionally aimed at civilians" are "never justified," while 24 percent believe these attacks are "often or sometimes justified."

Poor lady, imagine coming home and having someone else invited in by your partner. That would be horrible, hope she divorces the prick and has him locked up.

Perhaps it's been there for a while, but what is that bizarre cartoon that is gracing LGF now all about? I kind of know what it is meant to be, but why does the black thing look like a Penis, why is the (I assume) dirty hippy (dh) drawn like it is shagging the big black penis (bbp). Why have they both got their tounges out? Is that meant to be a gun that the bbp is carrying? and is so, how would it be carried as the bbp either has no arms or is carrying the dh? And why has the dh hippy got a crown on? And what is with the football, it is really out of proportion and looks stupid?
Perhaps this is a lizard's version of humour (well they all think Mark Steyn is funny!), but its oddly unsettling at best and bad gay porn at worst, imho.

Ummm... maybe because polygamy in Utah isn't new? Whereas I venture most of us had virtually no clue that it thrives within a sector of New York's immigrant population? Furthermore, Mormonism officially renounced polygamy in the 19th century, even if it persists in isolation. When will it happen in the culturally-Islamic countries cited in the story? Consider these two paragraphs from the Times article:

Other women spoke bitterly of polygamy. They said their participation was dictated by an African culture of female subjugation and linked polygamy to female genital cutting and domestic violence. That view is echoed by most research on plural marriages, including studies of West African immigrants in France, where the government estimates that 120,000 people live in 20,000 polygamous families.

“The woman is in effect the slave of the man,” said a stylish Guinean businesswoman in her 40s who, like many women interviewed in Harlem and the Bronx, spoke on the condition of anonymity. “If you protest, your husband will hit you, and if you call the police, he’s going to divorce you, and the whole community will scorn you.”


Seriously, do you want to see this sort of retrogade social ill imported into the U.S.--for the sake of the women involved and the strain it puts on our multiethnic cities? THAT's the point of the article, THAT's what made it blogworthy.

I neither idolize nor demonize CJ, and thus I can agree or disagree with him as I see best by my own lights. You, on the other hand, are so consumed with hatred for him, that you'd rather downplay the rights of women than admit he might have a valid point.

You're right to do so, but I think the point of this post on LGF Watch is that CJ is only interested in polygamy if it concerns Muslims. If these were animists in New York, the story wouldn't warrant a mention on LGF.

You mean the Eastern European organized criminals who import sex slaves to the United States?

I hate it.

How about you?

Oh wait. They're white so that doesn't matter.

Dear CJ,

You must always first state that white people are undertaking sexist discrimination or you are a racist. This is because white people are the most important race. The fact that you base your attacks on Islam being an intellectual belief that is not racially based does not excuse this behaviour.

To satisfy the demands of us modern freedom fighting anti-racists you must always assign primary status to acts carried out by the white race over the past 3000 years. It is these acts and these alone that have caused all the evil in the world, failure to acknowledge this is racist. Each act of non-white evil must be contrasted with a historical wrong committed by white people and judged accordingly, failure to do so is racist. Actions of non-white people cannot be judged as evil in isolation and must always be compared to worst thing white people have ever done, judging otherwise is racist.

CJ by failling to explicitly acknowledge the evil committed by white people you are showing yourself to be a racist.

Ouch. That crack about your East European mail order bride must have hit you where it hurt.

From what i understand LGF is a "ANti-jihad" and by proxy critical of Islamic culture web site, no? So Why is he expected to somehow do everything all the time?? When i go to a PETA website i expect to see Animal abuse stories. I will not say these PETA people are "indifferent to suffering" or "hypocrytes" becuase they dont cover Child abuse!
Also, Mormons dont have polygamy, in fact to insinuate so is "racist" IMHO. It is neither legal in Utah nor Allowed by the LDS church. The same can not be said of Islam or the codified laws of Sharia based countries.
As for that foolish remark about "the dark ages" when Chrales uses a Coloquialism that refers to primative behavior codes, it does
nt hold water. Any person who doesnt see racism in everything can see what he meant. You are'nt one of those people who thinks that the game of "pool" is racist do you??

It's a white supremacist site.

There's plenty of room to criticize Islam. There are several Communist newspapers I can think of immediately that have withering critiques of the repression of women in Muslim countries.

But they do just that, criticize religion, not provide a forum for genocidal fantasies against immigrants and non-whites.
