I Have Removed Little Green Footballs from Our Blogroll


Much of the right side of the blogosphere is talking about this story today.

Yesterday, Kilgore Trout, Charles Johnson’s enforcer moderator, decided it would be a good idea to go over to Hot Air and post racist comments to see if they would be moderated out or not. He did this in the wee hours of the morning, while Allahpundit and Ed were, you know, sleeping, so of course the mess wasn’t cleaned up right away. Duh, right? Erm, no.

Charred Johnson claims he didn’t send Kilgore on this fool’s errand, and I believe him, but neither did Charles stop him when he telegraphed his intentions much earlier. Not only that, but Charred didn’t fire Kilgore for shitting in his neighbor’s living room in the middle of the night either. Of course, Charred will ban anyone who questions him on the least of anything these days, but evidently, extremism in promoting an LGF agenda is no vice (Apologies to Barry Goldwater). To top it all off, the conventional stupidity at LGF is that the delay was some sort of proof that Hot Air tolerates racism.

I_shit_you_not.

Unfortunately, Ed overreacted and now one can’t even refer to Michelle “The Klingon” Obama as a Wookie at Hot Air. Don’t worry, you still have Tizona, because we’re racists. Just ask Charred or Kilgore.

At this point, you’re probably wondering why no links… or not. I’m really pissed at Little Green Snotballs, so I won’t link to them, and I’m not a fan of how deeply Hot Air caved either, so I’ll just send you to a third party, Ace of Spades HQ. In the comments, if you dig deep enough, are screen captures of the filth that Kilgore was spewing. I must admit, however, that aside from the n-bombs, much of that would pass me in the comment approval process here at Tizona. We’re a First Amendment site, and I’ll approve almost anything if it’s funny, whether I agree with it or not. I’ll also delete annoying and unfunny drivel even if it supports my posts. See how that works? If you’re a leftard, just be entertaining and I’ll approve your comments!

Anyway, LGF was fun four or five years back, but Charred and Killer have banned about 1,500 people now, so all of the funny and smart commenters, like me, are now banned and all that is left are the sycophants who bow to the Almighty Charred and see creationists around every corner and racists under every rock. I’ve simply had enough.

    Yeah, there were quite a few complaints about this at Tim Blair’s the other day. I doubt you’ll have anyone here complaining of your decision.

    On a side note, all this reminds me to add Iain Hall’s blog and get rid of VodkaBlogger’s. Not that I’ve a problem with VB, but the bloke went on vacation, then deleted his blog.

    • Angus Dei Says:

      Great idea. Iain Hall rocks, and VB has flown the coop.

    I posted on a thread here a few weeks ago how LGF had lost me, even as an occasional visitor. Seems my judgement was correct.

  3. Alone Says:

    You still have LGF listed on your Links page on your site.

    Yes, a purge of LGF is on everyone’s list of things to do this weekend.

    • bingbing Says:

      Ta.

    I tend to agree.

    “Batshit crazy” doesn’t begin to describe the issues at LFG.

    Cahrles is probably reflecting upon the lost opportunity of advertising on his blog.

    It is sad, I think, as he was one of the leading lights in the post 9/11 maelstrom, and I was only recently bemoaning the lack of dead Islamic terrorist porn and car-swarms which I used to enjoy.

    He did some sterling work, but it’s now time to move on.

    “dead Islamic terrorist porn and car-swarms” 🙂

    A guy at The Jawa Report said Charred now has a Muslim girlfriend named Kendra. I have NO WAY to verify if that’s true or not, but it sure would explain EVERYTHING that has happened there over the past couple of years. He’s gone from anti-idiotarian to idiot and anti-jihad to anti-Christian in that time.

    Hey, he does guilt-by-association – it’s his main schtick now – so I can indulge too.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      Yeah, i’m with Kabs on this, i question his sexuality.

      Does this mean i’m either a homophobe or a racist, i can’t keep up with Democritter speak.

  7. Kaboom Says:

    Girlfriend? I thought he was a raving pony-tailed shirt-lifter!

    • Angus Dei Says:

      I don’t think so. I’ve seen a couple of interviews he’s done on TV and I have a pretty finely tuned gaydar (LOL! I love that term). It didn’t register any alerts. He reminds me of many, many musicians I’ve known and worked with over the years, which is why I thought it strange he wasn’t a raving, ignorant, malinformed leftard. Turns out THAT was the alert I should have listened to, because that’s what he, in fact, is.

      I’ve always thought that the middle-aged-man-with-a-pony-tail psychology he displays is a bit pathetic, though. Not really dignified to cling to a youth long past, IMO. One thing is for sure, and it’s that he displays the psychology of a megalomaniac perfectly: Charred is absolutely intolerant of any criticism whatsoever, and so he surrounds himself ONLY with sycophants.

      There is no such thing as freedom of expression at LGF anymore, which is sad, because it used to be a great place to hang out with some hilarious commenters. Charred Johnson is an authoritarian absolutist hack now, and has more in common with the jihadists he used to criticize than he does with American libertarian-conservatives.

      Oh well. Nothing we can do about it, so it’s time to move on.

    Charles Johnson is an unstable, self centered, small minded, insecure douchebag with mommy issues that make Norman Bates look like Dr Phil. He also has a horse face and every day is a bad hair day in his world. Other than that he’s a hell of a man.

  9. nbpundit Says:

    Going onto someone elses’ blog, hijacking threads, leaving
    any kind of bombs, and then accusing the blog owners of
    racism is over the top and trying to run someone elses’
    business. Now HA has toppled to the ACORN type of
    thuggishness from LFG, starting down the same crappy
    road of censorship that is destroying a once premier blog.
    I guess thuggishness does pay off sometimes.
    I wouldn’t want any of them in a firefight with me, they
    have no ones’ back.

    When I saw Charles Johnson “basking in the light” of newfound adoration on a Network morning show, I knew he was over. He was just soaking up the approval from the host for going liberal and denouncing his previous stance. It was ugly and embarrassing to see; a grown man publicly groveling for approval from his erstwhile opponents.


Well, SAY something...
