Little Green Footballs excreter Charles Johnson at the keyboard.
Did you know that Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs probably supports apartheid? Not only that, he may be a full throated supporter of the Nazi extermination of the mentally handicapped. He probably is for the re-institution of human chattel slavery, both in the Confederacy and in Sudan. He might believe that the Romans were perfectly justified in destroying ancient Israel and it is possible that he believes that the Turks should have murdered more Armenians.
How do we know that?
Charles never protested in front of the South African embassy in the 1980s. His blog has never denounced the Nazi killing of the handicapped even once. He has never been seen at a Juneteenth celebration and he has never contributed a nickel to stop the genocide at Darfur. He has never said that the Romans should have left the Judeans alone and his silence on the Turkish genocide of the Armenians speaks volumes.
Therefore, it is entirely possible that he be a Nazi, an apartheidist, a slavery supporter, a supporter of Muslim genocide of Christians, and desires the utter crushing of Judaism.
“But you’re a lawyer!” I hear you cry. “How can you say that? That’s not evidence! Otherwise all of us are completely guilty of supporting every single human institution of wrongdoing simply by the fact that we never protested it! That’s completely unfair! That’s utter bullshit!”
Indeed it is.
Charles is of course none of these things; I'm sure that he's as pure as the driven snow with regard to every one of the above statements. So, Charles, (yes I know you’re reading this) you can hang up your phone with your lawyer.
I’m just applying to Charles Johnson the same logic he applies to those protesting the undeserved appearance of our abortion-mongering President at the Catholic school of Notre Dame, in this (utterly stupid) post here:
Not one of these people uttered a word of protest when Notre Dame University tried to bring radical Islamist Tariq Ramadan to the school, to make him chairman of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. But Tariq Ramadan is in favor of the death penalty for homosexuals, so maybe they have that much in common.
Charles, most days you merely annoy. But when you engage in madness like that, I can truly say: you certainly suck.

Charles also commits actionable libel against Rev. Norman Weslin, founder of the Lambs of Christ abortion protest group, by claiming there are "links" between him and James Kopp, the man who murdered abortion provider Bernard Slepian.
And what is that "link"?
Kopp, in 1992, was a member of a forerunner to the Lambs of Christ, before he went on to murder Slepian in 1999.
By Charles' logic, YOU ARE TAINTED BY EVERY CRIME OR ILLEGAL OR IMMORAL ACT OF ANYBODY WHO HAS EVER KNOWN YOU, OR EVER WILL KNOW YOU, NOW AND FOREVER, AMEN.
I hope and pray that everybody that has ever posted on Charles's site was born without sin. Otherwise, what with all those sinners he knows, he will very likely have all their sins held against him one day.
Glass houses, Trelayne, glass houses.

"Rhymeswithright", a poster on LGF, sez:
Charles -- but were they "perfectly fine" with letting the guy into Notre Dame? You make a big assumption there. After all, I have been involved in the pro-life movement for years, but have never participated in the any activities to raise money for breast cancer research. Does that mean I am "perfectly fine with women dying of breast cancer"? Or does it mean that I have chosen to focus my energies on an issue other than breast cancer? ... Besides, your response above makes it sound like you think there is something wrong with protesting "the legally elected President of the United States". Be careful lest you start sounding like those who argue that disagreeing with Obama is treason.Charles' reply:
Thanks -- I'll give your advice all the careful consideration it deserves.Rhymeswithright, at this point, has a -5 downding. Charles OTOH has two wet smoochie kisses smack on his ass.
