Milking Lizards

Charles is trying to get his little green followers to use their credit cards on Amazon so that he can benefit from the 4 percent affiliate kickback.

Desperate or what?

whats with the idf redirect... i dont get it... if it was like... tubgirl or something id understand... but seriously... wtf?

Two, three days of posts on LGF, plus hundreds of comments, and this is the best you can come up with to show up CJ and his minions as "rabid racists?" What, is he the only person on the net to partner with Amazon for a "kickback," as you put it in your usual delicate regard for accuracy and objectivity?

Naw, it's not like you're obsessed with CJ or have some irrational animus towards him...

(And a "hat tip" to boot! It took two people to uncover this shocking scandal...)

There are some sites where he redirects any incoming links to a seizure inducing flash video telling you that you're an idiot.

Just another one of those "Oh hardy har har" moments.

In Charlie World, this makes sense. See, readers of LGF Watch *obviously* hate Israel, so there's no greater snub than redirecting us to the IDL's site. In Charlie World, he's hurting us with every redirect.

Huh? This does not demonstrate that the lizards are rabid racists. It tarnishes the (quality!) editorial on LGF-- it's essentially advertising disguised as impartial content. Elsewhere, people clearly mark advertising so their readers know.

The Lizards just can't seem to understand that other people have 'lives' outside blogging. Unless they post constantly 365/24/7 they don't compute.

Charles makes his money from hosting moronic bigots. So it's in his interests to keep them fed with fresh meat. LGFW is run by people who have left their basements and live in the real world with families, work and college. That's the difference.

Hey dont mock the guy. Keeping the kettle of hate boiling since 9/11 doesnt come cheap!

The Muslim global invasion predicted by hardcore LGFers since 9/11 never came so people are getting bored with the LGF monotone and starting their own blogs.
LGF droids arent refreshing the site every 10 seconds to see if the Muslim Hordes are climbing over the hill and Chucklings advertising income isnt what it was.



PS

I wouldnt say LGFWatch hates Israel, though like most people in the world I would say they think Israeli society and the occupying regime has a blinkered self-defeating outlook and is dominated by militant dicks. Israel just sucks.
Fuck Israel.

The Sphinx said...

Anonymous, you can't blame Israeli society for the "militant dicks" that are running their government. I'm pretty sure there's quite a handful that doesn't approve of the asshattery that's supposedly meant to "grant more security for them (Though security through occupation" and quasi-imprisonment of an entire other population doesn't work out on the long-run).

Uh... yeah... I'm sure that's the difference. That and the fact that you're so much more in touch with reality...

So, LGFWatch, are you going to let this stand? If so, you better not say another word about how CJ's silence in his comboxes is tantamount to tacit approval of every whackjob thing you find there.

rofl, when's the last time this man had a real job?

Hi sleeping LGFWers , posting about small issues, and ignoring the big party at LGF?

Threats and vile wishes to former US president Carter

False headlines about UN human rights mission to Iraq which is to meet with Iraqi religious leaders not the Islamic world to seek fatwa against recruiting children as bombers.

Many of the religious leaders in Iraq are allying with the US and constant destination for US officials, but if UN does that, CJ is quick to bash on UN . Charles remember the parties holding majority in Iraq are actually religious ones?

V said...

@cokane: Good question. Probably sometime in 2006, because that's approximately when the URL "littlegreenfootballs.com" stopped resolving to a splash page that included a link Charles' web-design business, and started going directly to "littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog". Evidently LGF is now Charles' full-time job, since prospective clients now have no obvious way of getting in touch with him, or viewing his portfolio, etc.

Hi

I'm the original poster of the 'Israel sucks' comment.

Why shouldnt it stand? Its rather tame by the LGF metric. Rather low on the scale of nuke Mecca-transfer them-glass parking lot staple of LGF commentary.

I have no obligations of courtesy to Israel. Wheras you however, feel obliged to defend it.
If you ever have the time, and I the patience, I can give you a list as long as your arm why Israel is a sucky country.

Ill withdraw and delete the comment myself if you give me a coherent reason.

cokane said...

haha great. This is the lizard king eh? A man who does nothing with his life but scan MSM websites for stories about scary mooselimbs and/or LIEbruls.

9/11 changed everything indeed.

CJ quote of the day :

Associated Press photographer Bilal Hussein has been freed, under a new amnesty deal with the Iraqi government.

...

"CBS reporter Richard Butler, meanwhile, was also freed—by the US military, from an Al Qaeda hellhole, after two months in captivity."

The article he linked and quoted actually say:
"Richard Butler, a British photographer working for CBS who was kidnapped two months ago, was freed when Iraqi soldiers burst into a house in central Basra"

Little Green Footballs decline, see the 5 years figure to see the picture of going up then down and down.. Sign of people get tired of him? Or the mean evil MSM tm

Recently his posts even more trashier than ever, useful for plenty of materials for LGFW, but you people have life.

Lex said...

Anon 2--pardon me. I'll get back to posting ASAP for you. Until then though, read through some threads at LGF for your very own proof! Yes, it's just that simple!

Sphinx--seriously, I know, I can't wait for a lawsuit from someone with epilepsy.

As could the garden variety LGF'er as regards the Palis or Islamofascists.

You guys really do deserve each other. Separated at birth.

Anyway, the point is this. "Fuck X" is about the harshest thing you can say in the English language while avoiding an original thought. And you're not just condemning the Israeli leadership, or this or that Israeil policy, but Israel in its entirety. The country, the people, its very right to exist. That's a lot of hate to be wishing upon other people.

The collective wits of LGFWatch have jumped down CJ's throat for far less extreme words left in his comments section. But they don't seem to have much of an objection when it comes from someone wishing the same on their particular enemy of choice.

Hypocrisy? Yup. In triplicate.

Anonymous said...

Finally, in the interest of fairness, I will note that Sphinx at least called Mr/Ms "Fuck Israel" on some of his extremism. Sphinx strikes me as a basically decent guy who should get his own blog rather than try to imitate the monogrammed nebbishes here with the creepy, demented obsession with CJ's every word.

Here you go, even older than my own knowledge of LGF Watch's existence. (Sorry for the shameless plug). I appreciate your remark about me, but if you took the time to go through LGF Watch posts, you'll find just about nothing to support your doubt in these guys' decency.

The "obsession with CJ's words" accusation is extremely old and easily falls flat, simply because this is, after all, "LGF Watch" and not a site for selling cabbage, and furthermore only a side project of the authors here, by far not an obsession. We still have lives you know (e.g. as seen by my latest blog post as of now).

Wow. Just wow. Are we reading the same thread? Please explain yourself. Youre typing nonsense.

Sorry to go off topic, just wondering if this will go down as Debbie Shlussel's biggest public lie and most rabid attack on Muslims/The British yet

Anon @ 11:38:00

Thanks for that.

Shlussel's site is Lies. Lies. Lies.

Ive never heard of teams of airport staff hanging around the UK baggage reclaim to assist with passengers bags. Nevermind picking and choosing which cases to collect on a whim.

If anyone at all was hanging around baggage handling itll be taxi drivers, not paid airport staff. Were these figments of imagination wearing uniforms? Where they wearing the mandatory security badges?
If they existed at all which I certainly dont concede for one milisecond how did the 'witness' know they were Muslim? Did she follow them to a mosque and watch them worship? Who is this outraged witness? Lets hear a full and first hand account.

Its just more pro-Israel propaganda and nonsense trying to drum up support and sympathy for a failed state.

Debbie Shlussel is a liar.

I call bullshit.

Oh, I'm sorry. Did I misconstrue "Fuck Israel?" Was that supposed to mean, "I feel strong a strong, unabashed love for Israel and its people, that, metaphorically, it can be likened only to a desire for sexual congress?"

Re: Anon. @ 11:38:00

Good link Anon, I had a laugh at the idiocy of Debbie and her minions, they are trashing Britain and some people made British look like Nazis and anti-semite and a disaster, she even advised people not to go to Britain,

and when a Brit replied to her saying:

"I'm sorry but this story is pure fiction. Porters do not hang around the baggage claim carousel on international flights, at least not at any airport I've used. You have to claim your own baggage, unless you are disabled and have pre-requested help in retreiving them. It sounds as if the 'gentleman' who was escorting Beryl Dean to the carousel was a bit dodgy. I'd be more worried about him than a few Islamic porters.
And by the way, we Brits are not all anti-jew. Does using 'history' from 400 years ago prove that todays populace are racists? Ask the Navajo, or the Sioux, or the Cheyenne etc. Or was that all the Brits faultas well? And oh, another thing, some of us in this country are aware of, and are trying to, highlight the threat of 'creeping Islam.'"


She replied to him using idiotic All Caps:

"[BA: ACTUALLY, YOU ARE WRONG. SEE THE UPDATE TO THIS ENTRY. SO SAD THAT YOU FOUND THE NEED TO BE RUDE AND ATTACK AMERICA IN YOUR RESPONSE. IT ONLY HIGHLIGHTED HOW IGNORANT YOU ARE. DS]"


This is my favorite, the guy wasn't rude and didn't attack America in the way she attacked Britain.

Debbie and CJ can make new journalism and all this report based on word of mouth. Tabloid gossip blog

Even if it was true, it does not reflect the "disaster" of Britain, these incidents can happen regardless of race or religion and the answer to it? complain and punish the offender.

I pity these people who read such garbage "journalism", they must imagine the world in nightmare and that they already live under Caliphate.

Sphinx:

I respect you because you're an inhabitant of two worlds, the Egyptian (Arab, Muslim) world and the world of one with some degree of Western education. The world needs more people who can bridge those two worlds and interpret them to each other. I have traveled in a Muslim country and have relatives who live (or have lived) in Muslim countries (in civilian, not military careers). My experience and theirs largely jives with what you say about your countrymen.

Nevertheless, I think you're doing a disservice to yourself and others by casting in your lot with a group whose sole raison d'etre is finding fault with another blogger. It narrows your view. It restricts your focus. It precludes any possibility of finding truth or meaning in anything CJ says. It weds you to an unhealthy tendency to manufacturing the worst motive for anything CJ does.

Case in point: CJ promotes an item. LGFWatch makes it out to be a desperate attempt to shill for change. This is just silly. Or previous suggestions that he was receiving secret pay from the IDF. After all, one couldn't have some legitimate, untainted reason for believing in Israel's right to exist, could he?

The fact is, there is an extremist strain in certain modern Islamic sects and there are pockets of unassimilated Muslim communities in the West. To pretend these aren't problems or to dismiss anyone who thinks these are problems as a "racist" is blindness.

I'm done. Respond as you please, the last word is yours.
