LGF fauxtography?

In a post about the attempted breaking of the Gaza embargo by former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Charles Johnson links to and quotes from an article on the Atlanta Constitution Journal website.

However, the picture he uses alongside the cited article _ and inside his "quote" tags _ is not used on the AJC site.

Is CJ trying to pass the photo (a rather unflattering one) off as the work of the AJC, when in actual fact he added it?

Open question to Charles Johnson

From the recent thread:

#144 Charles

Here we go. I did not say I was "against carpet bombing." The reality is that indiscriminate bombing is not being used or even considered by Israel in this case, and they're not going to use it. It's not going to happen.

The only thing people achieve by fantasizing about killing 'em all is to make LGF look like an extremist site, and I don't like it.

Well, we don't like it either. Unfortunately though..
#126 Iron Fist

Yeah, I'm pretty much over all the motherfuckers in Gaza. They claim they want an independant State, but isn't that what the Israelis essentially gave them when they pulled out of Gaza? How's that working out?

It's past time that Israel finish the job in Gaza. There is no reforming for those people. They claim that they love death, and who can doubt them? They show their devotion on a daily basis.

It is time to put an end to it.

So, here's an open question to CJ: When are you going to consider banning this lunatic? He's obviously giving you lot a pretty bad name, seeing that he's been happily fantasizing about death for a few years now, without a note from you that he should start to behave.

Being quite the tyrant means that you should be capable of ruthlessly implementing your rules on your own site, and not - as we have shown here - talk about them while letting your fans humiliate you a few comments before.

Or does the armed ol' Fisty happen to know where you live, Charles?

No pity in LA this Christmas

The attack on Gaza is a bit like a Rorschach test. People's reaction tells you a lot about what kind of person they are.

Take Charles Johnson of :

More than 300 people have died since Friday, the vast majority of them Palestinians. Some were armed militants, some were police and other municipal workers, some were civilians.

What's striking is that Charles Johnson's reaction to this is: they probably deserved it. All of them. Indiscriminately.

He doesn't say: well, maybe the Israeli response to the rocket attack was a little over-the-top

He doesn't say: surely a highly-trained and ethical army such as the IDF can do better than mirror the Palestinian militants by firing into densely packed areas full of civilians.

No, he says, quote: "At some point, though, don’t we need to ask, 'How innocent are those ordinary Gazan civilians, anyway?'"

You see, that's a rhetorical question. For obviously, in Charles Johnson's mind the answer is clear: the civilians aren't innocent. By virtue of the fact that they live in Gaza, where the majority voted for Hamas, they are guilty, and therefore we shouldn't shed a tear if they are killed. Man. Woman. Child. All of them.

That's the kind of person Charles Johnson is.

Charles on Pastor Rick Warren

Well, while the left jumps all over Obama's choice of Pastor Rick Warren to give a prayer at his inauguration for Warren's more conservative views, Charles Johnson takes a different angle. The Muslim angle. Then the "creationist" angle. Then any angle he can find to milk this story for more posts. Quoting this article Charles posts:

"Warren, like many Muslims, opposes abortion and same-sex marriage."

Although the article doesn’t mention it, Warren has another thing in common with fundamentalist Muslims: a belief in young earth creationism.

ZING! You've got him now, Charles! Now go in for the kill:

Christopher Hitchens seems a bit disappointed to find Barack Obama engaging in the same sort of pandering that caused Hitchens to bail out on John McCain: If we must have an officiating priest at the inauguration, we can do much better than Rick Warren.

Wait, Sharmuta agreeing isn't enough for the kill? OK, try again:
Saddleback Church Deletes Page on Creationism and Homosexuality?

Religion | Mon, Dec 22, 2008 at 3:58:43 pm PST

Rick Warren, the Saddleback Church pastor chosen by Barack Obama to deliver the invocation at the presidential inauguration, has been getting a lot of media attention because he’s a very vocal opponent of gay marriage. Panda’s Thumb points out that Warren is also a creationist: Creationist to Give Invocation at Inauguration.

Oddly enough, the FAQ page at the Saddleback Church that contained their policy statements on dinosaurs, evolution, and homosexuality (among other subjects) has suddenly been wiped clean: Saddleback Church: Small Group Information.

But Google’s cache has a copy as it appeared on December 16, 2008.

I'll admit, this last one (posted at 3:58 PM, 22 December) does sort of prove the point with the "dinosaurs" theory and all, but is it another Rathergate or simply another Ron Paul obsession? I'm thinking Ron Paul since the next post is at 7:05 PM:

Video: Jackie and Dunlap on Rick Warren

Video | Mon, Dec 22, 2008 at 7:05:16 pm PST

Come Tuesday Charles catches now bedragled Pastor Warren "reaching out" to another Muslim group:

Politics | Tue, Dec 23, 2008 at 9:17:27 pm PST

When Pastor Rick Warren’s “Global Peace Coalition” presented President Bush with the International Medal of Peace recently, one of the groups invited to attend the ceremony was the Islamic Society of North America—one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial: ISNA ATTENDS SADDLEBACK CHURCH CIVIL FORUM ON GLOBAL HEALTH.

This event took place after the of the Holy Land Foundation defendants.

See? Pastor Warren is for Creationism and Islam! Bad! But wait, Charles has yet another weird link for us:
God Will Punish Rick Warren

This was said by a "Baptist Pastor/Nirther" and as for poor ol' Chuckles:

God was unavailable for comment.

Well, for anyone sick of the incessant mainstream media coverage of outrage over Pastor Rick Warren, this has been a report on the Charles Johnson outrage over Pastor Rick Warren. Signing off, this has been Lex, and a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Jolly etc. to everyone.

Global Warming Fun

The lizard army is chuckling its collective arse off at the conclusion of the overwhelming majority of scientists and ecologists saying that global warming is indeed a human-made problem that'll have a large impact on our future.

Now regardless whether you believe in global warming or not, it should strike you as odd that in this recent thread, ( one of the prime arguments in the comment section against global warming, despite the fact that it's freaking winter, must've been the instant classic: "Oh look, it's snowing outside. Global warming is bunk". If I didn't know better, I'd look around my apartment, observe the lack of other humans, and conclude that I'm one of a kind, if I were to follow this tragic line of trashy logic.

Then the lizard tyrant shot himself in the foot with his latest post:

The three YouTube videos in that thread should cause your jaw to involuntarily hit the floor or your head to bang repeatedly against the next wall for the sheer dishonesty displayed by Martin Durkin, producer of the documentary "The great global warming swindle" and representative of polemics the lizards are so vehemently clinging to. The part where he gets to defend his own film is literally anywhere between funny and torturous.

Go ahead and watch them if you're feeling adventurous, and give yourself a laugh or two at a group of people not even capable of noticing how excruciatingly bad this man performs, proven by the lack of comments questioning Chuckles' reason for finding this sad excuse of a skeptic - of all people - to present to the world, a scenario oddly reminiscent of their ongoing drooling at a certain female vice president candidate who boasted on how geographic location is a main credential for foreign policy experience.

Charles IS a Nirth Certifikit Troofer!

Well, a big old hat-tip to Beamish on this one. It appears that prior to his enemies espousing the great big absurdist fight for Obama's "nirth" certificate Chuckles was calling for it himself.

Charles, please go ban yourself, block your account and hand over the keys to Killgore and Sharmuta. You are no longer welcome.

Oh, and just for fun:

re: #33 DesertSage

Yeah! I think we have a right to know. Not releasing it only sends the message that there's something to hide.

Guess she's out too. But Charles, oh Charles!!:

re: #393 Cognito

Can't get behind this one.

Obama's citizenship is not his personal business, but his birth certificate is.

Just rumors.

What? Are you seriously suggesting that it doesn't matter whether he's a citizen or not? Because without the birth certificate, there's no way to know for sure.

A US citizen's birth certificate contains NO sensitive personal information. What could possibly be Obama's reason for refusing to release it?

(please note the 7 votes for his comment...LOL)

Charles Insults of the Week

Charles is really into insulting other bloggers lately, I just thought I'd chronicle the egomania with a few highlights:

(Cross-posted at govvs)

Birth Certificate fun

Charlie Johnson is throwing somewhat of a fit over the cock-and-bull stories of Barack Obama's "Nirth Certifikit", etc. More developments covered here. However, in his whole frenzy to scrape off the slime from himself for helping promote the story in the first place (, he has probably failed to notice that Vandals have desecrated French Musl.. I mean youths' graves, just in time for Eid el Adha.

That, or he doesn't give a crap. Or he's afraid to lose his large Islamophobic donor base readership, shortly after having alienating creationists, right-wing fascists and Bobby Spencer.

Anyway between the thread mentioned above when Chuckles was still wallowing in his own juvenile "Nirth Certifikit Troofer" days and the present, there have been some interesting developments in the mindset of his sycophantic worshipers. For example..
#29 Sharmuta

Come on, Barry! What's the big deal? It's only a birth certificate.

What's with the hiding?


And then:
#1 Sharmuta

I hope when others come across such links they'll use the report function and help Charles and Stinky keep the joint nice and kook-free.


Some other gems found on the same thread:

#5 warnergt
Sounds like censorship to me.


A rating of -32 for that one! To which the lizard tyrant responded:

#17 Charles

re: #5 warnergt

That's because you don't understand the meaning of the word "censorship."

You do not have a right to post anything you like at LGF. Period. If that's not to your liking, go and post somewhere else.


And finally someone just had to say it:

#15 Sharmuta

Uh- no. This is private property. Free speech rights don't apply.


Glad we got that one settled. All other comments raining down on warnergt proved one thing: The lizard army thinks their deity is free to do whatever he wants on his own freaking blog, but don't actually deny that he can be seen as the biggest pro-censorship asshat of 2008.


Here's a great quote by Chuckles, remember he's just spent the last couple of months banning people for disagreeing with him, deleting all of their posts, censoring spin off links etc etc.

Appel clearly has no idea what happens at LGF, where we have more than 5,000 comments a day debating every topic under the sun from every viewpoint.
Charles should really be a little bit more honest and add the words 'as long as I agree with them' to the end of that sentence.

Video Killed The Blogging Star

Could this be the most hypocritical piece of crap ever recorded and put out on the internet?

What next?

Perhaps a chat with Debbie Schlussel discussing bigotry and racism?

That Old, Familiar Feeling

This is just for those who kept saying that LGF had gone soft, gone leftist, or not bigoted anymore. Charles may have reined in his lizards for a while, but it's back to good old Islam hating at LGF now.
