Having successfully leveraged the labors of many tiny wingnuts into a commercial enterprise of sorts (Pajamas Media), which then provided a platform for "PJTV", a streaming video portal for wingnuts, Roger "The Hat" shows his appreciation by dumping them.
PJTV's watershed moment came when Roger hired Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher for some ace reportage from Israel. Flushed with that sucess, and the prospect of dinging thousands of losers between $15 and $37 per month to watch the likes of Glenn Reynolds and Victor David Hanson interview each other, and drawing on his extensive experience with Hollywood rejection letters, Roger sends out this:
As you know, last September Pajamas Media began a new initiative in Internet television called Pajamas TV. When we started with our RNC coverage from Minneapolis, we noted that we would be in a Beta Phase through the first quarter of 2009. In the last few months we have strengthened the PJTV lineup with shows covering Media Bias, Education Bias, Middle East Update, Sharia and Jihad, Powerline Report, Ask Dr. Helen, Hugh News, Poliwood, Conservatism 2.0, Economy and Finance, National Security, and others.
As the end of the first quarter approaches and we near the production phase of Pajamas TV, we will continue to build our emphasis in this area. As a result we have decided to wind down the Pajamas Media Blogger and advertising network effective March 31, 2009. The PJM portal and the XPressBlogs will continue as is.
Since our ad relationship continues for the time being, you should note that in order to be paid for the 1st quarter of 2009, you must leave the current Pajamas ads up until 12:01AM April 1. We will be sending you information in mid-March on removing the ads. As of April 1, 2009, you will be free to arrange syndication or re-sale deals.
We thank you very much for participating during the formative years of Pajamas Media and we look forward to working with you in other ways. One of those is, of course, Pajamas TV. If you have any ideas in that regard, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our best wishes in the new year and again our deepest gratitude for your participation in Pajamas Media.
Roger L. Simon
CEO, Pajamas Media
You got to give Charles some credit: knowing that the ponytail would never fly in TV Wingnutistan, he bailed some time ago....

Lizard Minions old and new must have been startled by this post today from their Lizard Master:
Never joined? Such modesty! For many, Charles is the "right-wing blogosphere". Of course, with the brand in such disrepute and disgrace, it's hardly surprising that Chuck is trying to edge away from the dead-end diehards, torture enthusiasts and chickenhawks he's been spoon-feeding for years (at great profit to himself). Let's just do a Google quick fact-check:

While Charles Johnson is entertaining his little green funhouse with the overchewed topic of Barack Obama's Muslim roots (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/32581_Suddenly_Obama_Has_Muslim_Roots), he has either overseen, or is just uncomfortable with the fact that Russia has stopped its new short-range missile program in the wake of the new administration's attitude, as of Obama's and Medvedev's pledge to stop the 'drift' in the US-Russian relations. For those who are interested in world peace, this can be considered a good first step in the new US administration's foreign policy.
So Charles, let this be a reminder from LGF Watch that you might want to report on that.
Though while we think about it for a while, he most probably will not.

Sometimes Charles Johnson's postings are so baffling that you have to wonder whether he is pursuing a political agenda or just plain dumb.
Take this one.
Europe has been overwhelmingly sympathetic to the terror suspects imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, so this seems like a very good idea.
France is pushing for European Union countries to take 60 of the detainees deemed innocent but at risk of torture in their home country, according to a report by the German magazine Der Spiegel that was picked up by Reuters.
Notice that the Europeans are only interested in the ones “deemed innocent.” Naturally.
Well duh! Imagine the Europeans wanting to let the Americans deal with the criminals they picked up. Crazy huh? And only accepting the ones that aren't going to end up in a US high security prison? Wow. It's hard to see how Charles finds that a difficult idea to comprehend.
Then there's this one.
Barack Obama’s first interview since his inauguration went to Al Arabiya, the virulently antisemitic Arab satellite network that regularly broadcasts support for jihad and militant Islam. This is an absolutely horrible precedent, and the implied weakness will surely encourage jihadists worldwide—no matter what Obama thinks he’s “communicating” to them.
This is the very same channel that allows Hamas rockets to be fired from their studio building in Gaza: Video: Al Arabiya Studio Used As Rocket Launching Site.
Anyone who follows the Middle East knows that Al Arabiya was actually launched as a progressive/liberal challenger to Al Jazeera. I mean, look at their presenters for chrissakes! They're the last people to throw their lot in with Hamas. And, if you view the video Charles links to the presenter certainly doesn't look like someone who would "allow" Hamas rockets to be fired from her studio building. Her reaction is one of incredulity and concern.
To misinterpret that isn't just stupid, it's got to be outright malice. And there you have the reason for these idiotic postings. They're the product of a man driven to smear the politics of progress and peace - however stupid it makes him look.
Hat-tip to Jeppo for this one. I am posting only part of this here for brevity, the rest is at Gates of Vienna Vs. The World Vs. LGF:
Hat-tip to Jeppo on this one:
I'm really starting to think that they're fighting just for our benefit. Sphinx, is this all just to amuse us? Can't be....OK, readers might remember the call by Pamela Geller for Charles Johnson to be publicly flogged as well as the ensuing mayhem over this post at LGF. It appears that Pamela has a case of subjective outrage (actually it's a rather advanced case, this is merely one episode being pointed out by Charles here):
And speaking of bloggers who are pushing the fascist agenda, Pamela Geller posted something on Saturday, outraged about a sheikh who called for Geert Wilders to be “flogged.”
Remember, this is the woman who recently called for me to be “publicly flogged,” because I won’t sign up with the fascists she’s shilling for, particularly the Belgian Vlaams Belang.
And now, she has deleted the post about Geert Wilders, obviously realizing that it made her look like an addled hypocrite.
Ooops, pardon me for missing the post at AS folks, back to Chuck now:
Here’s the Google cache of the page that’s no longer on her blog: Atlas Shrugs: New York Sheikh Khalid Yasin in speech in Holland: Wilders must be flogged.
Well, is it hate speech? Here’s Geller wishing the same fate upon me; should she be prosecuted?
Wow, how long did Charles mine Atlas Shrugs for any little bit he could call her on for the "flogging" comment? Speaking of comments, the lizards' obliging anti-Pamela comments are really quite amusing, though not as much as the caption contest in the post below;)

Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller Calls for Me to Be 'Publicly Flogged'
Blogosphere | Sun, Jan 11, 2009 at 8:08:22 am PST
In yet another post praising the European neofascist group Vlaams Belang, Pamela Geller reveals that she wants me publicly flogged, and I’m fairly sure she’s serious.
Since this is coming from the shrieking lunatic who thinks Barack Obama is the love child of Malcolm X, I guess I should take it as a compliment. Stay as classy as you are, Pamela!
Comments are rather hilarious and still incoming. Run on over and take a look at the mayhem. And someone please tell me Pamela did this as a stunt for blog traffic. Please.

The conflict in Gaza has really stirred up the wackos, and they’re pouring their fury into illiterate emails sent to little old me. Here are the latest two messages sent through our contact form by Hamas supporters and Jew-haters; first, from St. Louis, Missouri, with the descriptive title “Assholes...” and the phony but almost humorous return address “firstname.lastname@example.org:”
Brought out the wackos, as opposed to the genocidal lizards....yeah Charles, that's a problem. Now the "hate mail":
You dickheads are shameless... 555+ Palestenian, mostly innocent, killed, and what 5 Israeli’s killed by chance... genocide ongoing in Gaza at the hands of the putrid and horrific Zionist criminals, and you pricks have the NERVE to marginalize and BLAME THE PALESTENIANS for their own deaths?
Well yes, LGF has turned into a comment mill for blaming the Palestinians and cheering for dead Gazans. What exactly is the problem here Chuckles?
Then we have a love note sent from Dubai, with the title, ‘Shame on little green “Hitlers”:’
You people are truely sick! It is sicking to see how the little green “Hitlers” are enjoying the Jewish massacare of the Palestinians.
Wrong call on who the "wackos" there Charles, way wrong. Now for the obligatory "Grand Mufti comment":

On the one hand, this kind of depraved, foaming hatred is mildly humorous. On the other it is scary because it reveals the really dangerous, deranged heart of the liberal mobs mentality. Dangerous because you can't reason with it, anymore than you can reason with rabid animals.......
As opposed to the mob mentality of the Charles-worshipers? Speaking of:

"You people are truely sick! It is sicking to see how the little green “Hitlers” are enjoying the Jewish massacare of the Palestinians."
I don't get it. The Jihadis continually proclaim that they love death. They rejoice in it. What's wrong with rejoicing in it right along with them. There's no pleasing some people.

Just a rerun of every time the Palis have a war with the Jews. Palis greatest talent: dying in a loud grotesque manner. They suck at any combat where you go head to head with real soldiers. Much better at firing rockets at schools. The schools don't shoot back.

re: #115 Nevergiveup
20:36 British PM: This is the darkest moment yet for the Middle East (Reuters)
A democracy beating the crap out of barbaric savages is the darkest moment yet for the Mideast?
Off the top of my head, when pizza parlors and buses and cafes and school cafeterias and Passover Seders and nurseries and on and on and on and on and on were the target of these same savages, when Arabs screamed for Israeli blood, just may have been darker.
OK, I'm not going to go through the next 1,000 or so comments, I think this small sample is quite enough. I just might go ahead and send in my own hate mail though, though it will be full of mockery of the mighty lizard mob mentality rather than "hate". Now what exactly was Chuckles complaining about here?

There's true desperation at LGF, where the lizards are in full denial mode about the killing of over 100 Palestinian civilians in Israel's attack on Gaza. It's not true, they rant, in the face of all available evidence.
Wait! All evidence? No! CJ&Co have dug up two pictures that might or might not be staged. It's hard to tell. But surely this is evidence that all those reports of civilian casualties are anti-Israel lies, no?
Meanwhile, don't expect Charles to run a "work accident" headline about the three IDF soldiers who were killed by a round from one of their own tanks. He reserves that kind of Shadenfreunde for the

They are trying to say to the world that the Arabs living in the vicinity of Israel (I refuse to call them Palestinians) who danced in the streets and distributed candy while Americans burned to death and died in the World Trade Center on 9/11 are victims... and in a way they are.
They are perpetual victims:
They are victims of their own inability to chose enlightened leaders,
They are victims of their own murderous excesses,
They are victims of a warped, savage and blood thirsty philosophy,
and finally, they are victims of their own stupidity.

Charles rightfully doesn't tolerate what could be labelled as calls for genocide.
But would I be out of line if I occasionally wished Israel was guilty of just 10% of which she is accused by these projecting savages.
I think just 10% would solve a whole lot of problems.

It's funny how middle-aged men get all aroused by video footage of military 'precision strikes'.
I'm sure The Naked Gun said all there is to say about that issue.
Now it appears that these 'precision strikes' may not be so precise after all.
Hey Charles, how does it feel to be jerking off to the killing of women and children?
