Ann Coulter, The SPLC, LGF And The CCC

Perhaps you have seen this latest alarmist screed from Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, by way of the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Huffington Post:

Ann Coulter and the Council of Conservative Citizens

Feb 15, 2009

In her new book, does Ann Coulter actually defend a white supremacist hate group, claiming they’ve been unfairly branded as “racist?”

Unfortunately, she really does. I’m not taking the Southern Poverty Law Center’s word for it, either; I have the book and I’ve confirmed that everything they say in this article is accurate.

Coulter spends the better part of three pages defending a group called the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), which The New York Times had described as a “thinly veiled white supremacist organization.” Coulter begs to differ. The CCC, Coulter opines, is “a conservative group” that has unfairly been branded as racist “because some of the directors of the CCC had, decades earlier, been leaders of a segregationist group.” “There is no evidence on its Web page that the modern incarnation of the CCC supports segregation,” she says. “Apart from some aggressive reporting on black-on-white crimes — the very crimes that are aggressively hidden by the establishment media — there is little on the CCC website suggesting” that the group is racist. Indeed, its main failing is “containing members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.”

Coulter could hardly be more wrong. And even if she can’t find time to read beyond a page of the CCC’s website, she really ought to know — after all, the organization where she frequently speaks, the Conservative Political Action Committee, has publicly banned the CCC from its annual gathering because it is racist. Also in the late 1990s, Jim Nicholson, then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, asked GOP members to stay away from the CCC because of its “racist and nationalist views.”

How could conservative Republicans be inspired to say such ugly things? Let us count the ways.

The CCC’s columnists have written that black people are “a retrograde species of humanity,” and that non-white immigration is turning the U.S. population into a “slimy brown mass of glop.” Its website has run photographic comparisons of pop singer Michael Jackson and a chimpanzee. It opposes “forced integration” and decries racial intermarriage. It has lambasted black people as “genetically inferior,” complained about “Jewish power brokers,” called gay people “perverted sodomites,” and even named the late Lester Maddox, the baseball bat-wielding, arch-segregationist former governor of Georgia, “Patriot of the Century.”

This is completely beyond the pale.

I won’t link to the CCC website, but it takes about two seconds of looking at their front page to see that it’s a white supremacist site; prominently displayed as I write is an advertisement for “White Pride T-shirts,” apparently run by the neo-Nazi website Stormfront, and a host of articles with a blatantly racist slant—including one that touts the Eurofascist groups (Vlaams Belang, BNP, National Front) that have been the subject of many LGF posts. It stretches credulity to the breaking point to think that Coulter simply missed all of it.

So much hand-wringing over a fairly innocuous couple of pages from Ms. Coulter’s (great book) Guilty.

Rather than take the Southern Poverty Law Center’s word for what Ms. Coulter says, you can read it for yourself.

From pp 24-26:

Chapter 1 – Liberal Motto: Speak Loudly And Carry A Small Victim

… According to his devoted media claque, Obambi was a victim of "guilt by association" whenever anyone mentioned his two-decade association with a racist preacher or his ties to an unrepentant domestic terrorist. Being offended by "guilt by association" was another new posture for liberals, who heretofore had specialized in making guilt-by ­association charges.

Republican politicians who had given speeches to a conservative group, the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), were branded sym­pathizers of white supremacists because some of the directors of the CCC had, decades earlier, been leaders of a segregationist group, the Citizen Councils of America, which were founded in 1954. There is no evidence on its Web page that the modern incarnation of the CCC supports segregation, though its "Statement of Principles" offers that the organization opposes "forced integration" and "efforts to mix the races of mankind." But mostly the principles refer to subjects such as a strong national defense, the right to keep and bear arms, the traditional family, and an "America First" trade policy."

Apart from some aggressive reporting on black-on-white crimes—the very crimes that are aggressively hidden by the establishment media—there is little on the CCC website suggesting that the group is a "thinly veiled white supremacist" organization, as the New York Times calls it in one of its more charitable descriptions. At least the crimes reported on the CCC’s Web page actually happened, as opposed to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s claim that the U.S. government invented AIDS to kill blacks.

Republicans Senator Trent Lott and Representative Bob Barr did nothing more than give speeches to the CCC, yet they were forever damned by their association with it. Neither man even belonged to the CCC, nor did they attend CCC meetings once a week for twenty years. They certainly didn’t have their daughters baptized by CCC activists.

But according to the establishment media, Lott and Barr were fully responsible for the decades-old affiliations of some of the directors of a group . . . because they spoke at the CCC. As the media’s hysteria about the CCC reached a fever pitch, a Times editorial howled about "fresh evidence of the persistence of racism" on the part of Lott based on his "links to the white separatist group called the Council of Conservative Citizens." The New York Times was shocked by the group’s "thinly veiled white supremacist agenda," but was somewhat more accepting of the completely unveiled racism of Obama’s preacher. One surmises that the CCC’s thin veil of white supremacy would have become a bit thicker had Democratic congressman Dick Gephardt ever been a seri­ous candidate for president. In the 1970s, he had spoken to a branch of the related, but more outre, Citizen Councils of America. That, and the fact that he’s a preposterous boob, are probably the only two things that kept Dick Gephardt out of the White House.

After the initial flurry of articles, editorials, and news stories in the Times excitedly reporting that Barr had spoken to the CCC, Democratic representative Bob Wexler introduced a resolution in Congress for the sole purpose of denouncing the Council of Conservative Citizens. Other than the 9/11 terrorists, the CCC may be the only group ever sin­gled out for denunciation in a congressional resolution. How about a resolution from Obama porn-porn girl Wexler on Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ?

When Barr later gave a speech on the House floor favorably citing President John F. Kennedy, Senator Ted Kennedy’s son, Representa­tive Patrick Kennedy, got in Barr’s face, shouting, "How dare you! Anybody who has been to a racist group has no right invoking my uncle’s memory!’ Liberals are now reserving the right to tell us which former presidents we can mention by name.

Barr had given a speech to a group that, even assuming everything that the Southern Poverty Law Center says about it is true, does not hold a candle to the racism of Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Obama was married by the Reverend Wright, his daughters were baptized by the Reverend Wright, Obama gave his second autobi­ography the title of one of the Reverend Wright’s sermons. And yet after decades of majoring in Guilt by Association, liberals were indig­nant when an ad on cable television linked Obama and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr. The Times produced a blistering editorial decrying the "hate mongering" and calling the ads "the product of a radical fringe that has little regard for rational debate."

Liberals, who will attack with whatever is available because they have no principles, were also appalled by any attempt to link Obama to Bill Ayers. In an op-ed so clever she couldn’t stand herself, New York Times columnist Gail Collins wrote that if Obama was respon­sible for Ayers’s actions then she was responsible for the banking scandals of the eighties by virtue of the fact that savings-and-loan king Charles Keating had spoken at her high school thirty years ear­lier. Collins’s satirical chain of causation did not, however, apply to Republicans speaking to a group containing members who had be-longed to a segregationist group thirty years earlier, which, come to think of it, pretty much describes Collins’s connection to the banking scandals.

Can Trent Lott and Bob Barr get an apology now?

As any sentient being can tell, Ms. Coulter was writing about the power and dangers of ‘guilt by association,’ as it is selectively applied by our watchdog media.

Ms. Coulter was not defending the CCC, but describing it as no more racist — and quite a bit less racist — than Mr. Obama’s preacher of 30 years.

Nothing in the subsequent attacks upon her contradict her characterization of the CCC. They are just the worst kind of (liberal) moral posturing.

The Reverend Doctor Jeremiah Wright was far more racist and Mr. Obama’s ties to him were far more immediate and direct. And yet mentioning Mr. Wright’s connections to Mr. Obama was deemed to be out of bounds during the campaign – and ever since.

It is cited as yet another despicable instance of the (imaginary) ‘Republican attack machine’ practicing (the underrated) ‘guilt by association.’

Indeed, the CCC could actually be a lot more racist and Ms. Coulter’s points would still be accurate.

Mr. Obama attended Trinity Church going on 30 years, and is now the sitting President.

Messrs. Lott and Barr merely gave speeches to the CCC, and neither ever ran for President on major party tickets, much less won their party’s nomination.

Obviously Ms. Coulter’s comparison was too subtle for some.

Meanwhile, Discover The Networks provides a handy refresher course on the background of both the Southern Poverty Law Center and its con artist boss, Morris Dees.

    Strikes me that Johnson is proving himself to be either an idiot, or is so scared of the Dear Leader and his communist minions, that he’s abandoning Conservatism in order to not be shut down by the Dear Leader’s Ministry of Propaganda and Popular Enlightenment.

    Whichever it is, I’ve read Ann’s latest book, enjoyed it immensely (as I do all her writings), and could tell she wasn’t defending racists, but was comparing the treatment libs get when they address odious groups (such as NOW, NARAL and various communist front groups, such as Code Pink and MoveOn.org) with the treatment Conservatives (or at least Republicans) get when they address any group that doesn’t hew to the lib line.

    Johnson needs to extract his head from his anal orifice…he’s suffering from oxygen starvation.

  2. JohnMG

    Johnson’s not too bright, is he? He even tells us how he arrives at his loopy conclusions.

    …..”it takes about two seconds of looking at their front page to see that it’s a white supremacist site…..”

    His entire article reflects that he took about “two seconds” to absorb all that Ann said.

    A short attention span, I’d say.

  3. Weasel

    If the liberals and the feeble minded are getting their panties all bunched up because “some of the directors of the CCC had, decades earlier, been leaders of a segregationist group”, then just imagine the outrage there will be when they find out that Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was once in the KKK and pesonally tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964!!!

    And despite that history, the dems have given him multiple leadership roles such as:
    President pro tempore of the US Senate, (a position third in the line of presidential succession, behind Vice President and Speaker of the House), 1989-1995, 2001-2003 and 2007-now
    Senate Majority Leader, 1977-1981, 1987-1989
    Senate Minority Leader, 1981-1987
    Senate Majority Whip, 1971-1977
    Secretary of the Senate Democratic Conference, 1967-1971

    I bet when they read this, they will run him out of town on a rail! Especially since he “tricked” them into giving him leadership jobs for the last 40+ years!!! He’s just lucky he was never caught dropping the “N” word during a national broadcast (like on Fox News Sunday in March 2001).

    But that’s all in the past now. Maybe we should just publicly execute those CCC directors and get it over with. Then the other side will like us and never say bad things about us ever again…

  4. an_inconvenient_ruse

    What is truly frustrating is the Liberal notion that minorities, like Rev. Wright cannot be racist because they are not in “power” like those racist, sexist, homophobic, priviliged white folk.

  5. brad

    ALL CONSERVATIVES are racist in the eyes of these people—-Why do you care what they think? It bothers me that Conservatives still do some hand wringing whenever a liberal accuses them of racism?

    THERE IS NOTHING that a Republican or Conservative can do that is worse than what black liberals say and do. Just look at Robert Byrd, Ted Kennedy, the black self-appointed “reverends” and Louis Farrakhan.–All these people and many more are worse than Republicans. Hell! Liberals call terrorists “freedom fighters” and if they can’t call them nazis, then who are they to call anyone anything?

    Whenever liberals bring up the race card, it is just a wide open opportunity to talk about the double standard that they ignore. Shove it back in their face, and don’t worry about it.

  6. al

    Charles Johnson is a strange bird. I’ve posted on his site a few times and he keeps censoring – as if he’s a liberal. Plus his mismatch of liberal and conservative topics to support is strange. I’m thinking that he is a liberal, but he has some reasoning left to know that a lot of liberalism is goofy.

    On the other hand, his cognitive dissonance concerning people trying to save Europe’s culture with some posts against Militant Islam and terrorism is sort of funny. I can’t say I’ve read all of his posts, but it seems he can’t make a mental connection that it might be good to stop the Islamification of Europe. You can’t have it both ways and yet he tries.

    Regardless, the censoring is telling. It’s childish, really. He should just read Coulter’s book – I’m about half way through it and it’s very good.

    I’m done with his site.

  7. sheehanjihad

    Seems like Johnson is the type to hang a noose on his own office door, and then screech to the media that Coulter did it.

  8. GnuCarSmell

    Obama just appointed Otis Moss, Jr. to the President’s Advisory Council to be part of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Moss is a close associate of Jeremiah Wright and the father of Otis Moss III, the new pastor who replaced Wright at Trinity United.

    Just incredible. Obama is turning the White House into a way-station for hate-mongers posing as religious leaders (Moss is not the only such radical selected for this “advisory” group).

  9. catie

    I don’t know what has happened to Charles Johnson, he seemed to be alright in the beginning but I got banned there too. It was only recently though (after the election of the Dear Leader). Oh well, I’m glad to be here now.

  10. VMAN

    I don’t know who this Johnson creep and don’t much care. It seems allot of folks are doing a little CYA these days. All I can say to those people is that they are cowards. The real fact has nothing to do with skin color. It doesn’t matter what color you are if you’re conservative you’re wrong with the libs. Wasn’t there just an article here or somewhere recently that called Michael Steele a racist? But I though Black people were not capable of racism. I guess that these people have forgotten that all dems were segregationists back in the 50s and 60s. You remember George Wallace and Lester Maddox and the gang.

  11. ropatrick

    Charles Johnson probably dislikes Anne because of her intelligent questioning of the theory of evolution. His website, LGF, has expanded from just keeping an eye on the muslim menace, to posting items that ridicule and mock anyone that dares to disturb this status quo.

    But this is what Anne does best! She sees the issues of the day in ways that the average person can not. Who else would have thought of writing a book in support of Joe McCarthy? Who else would have taken the risk of debunking the accepted dogma of evolution? But not only does she see the inherent truth to issues such as these constantly in her columns and her books, she documents her proofs. Any intelligent person reading her books and included documentation is hard pressed to be able to disagree with her findings.

    She is brilliant as an author, but her real value is in the humorous way she is able to get her point across. By couching these truths in entertainment, she has a far better chance of reaching, informing, and perhaps convincing a larger audience.

    What Rush Limbaugh is to the radio world, Anne is to the publishing world. She is one of the only hopes that conservatives currently have of restoring rationality and reason to society. So that is why it is so worrisome to see the degrading comments responding to the post on LGF. Many are full of hatred toward Anne and other conservatives like her. These people probably consider themselves conservatives, but it would seem they are more like mindless drones parroting the view of their leader Charles, rather like the Obama fan club. Perhaps they should read the book for themselves and then decide what they think Anne was trying to say. Not defending a racist organization, but pointing out the reaction (or lack thereof) of the mainstream media when confronted with one.

  12. 12 Gauge Rage

    The left will always pick on Anne no matter what she says or does. If they knew they could get away with it, they’d have her silenced permanently.

  13. bl

    Here, Here, to all the above! I have stated this a couple of times at Ann’s other site, I’ll state it again. It’s so funny how a 99 pound woman, who is not on T.V everyday, just every so often. It’s amazing how the uniqueness of her, plus her brain all in itself just drives them up the walls. What is happening? Can’t they relate to someone who had a basic upbringing in a basic suburban, residential neighborhood? With, two parents who had basic values of right and wrong?
    That somehow, she would learn from her parents the strength of what makes this country tick? I once read her dad worked for the FBI as a union buster. I love that, guys like her dad knew how expose the commi mind within, so they could be exposed and not go full throttle as to destroy companies one by one. Her parents are also WW11 generation. Any one who comes from that cannot be broken or changed. They must deal with it. Not be so quick with the racist, nazi, accusation. Every time they do, guess what? It reverses right back to them. This is why she and others like her always win. For that, we say “Thankgod”

    • 1sttofight

      Communist are not taking over the US, The American citizens are giving it to them by being afraid of offending someone. Just when did being called a racist become a Scarlet Letter? I am a white male and I am a racist yet if I were black I would not be a racist.
      It is time to start calling a spade a spade and get back to making a better world for our children and grandchildren. If I offend some people, so be it, don’t read what I post, but one thing is for sure, I will never lie, it is just to much against the grain for me.

  14. VMAN

    As far as racism goes my wife and I have been talking about genetics lately. Now I admit I don’t know much about genetics but I do know that as blacks and other dark skinned races procreate with light skinned races they become lighter not the other way around. Look at the O hole. He is much lighter than daddy. I would say give it about 3 to 5 hundred years and people in general will all be white unless they choose to be racist bigots. So to all you white supremesists out there take heart. Please don’t jump down my throat I say this all tongue in cheek.

    • VMAN

      Another thing to the O hole in chief. By the time you leave office, in 4 years, your 2 daughters (or as someone called them the two punishments) will be of dating age. What you gonna do when they bring home whitey?

    • proreason

      Melanin helps protect against the sun’s rays, which in turn blocks the formation of the critical vitamin D. But since the skin gets so much sunlight in the tropics, the dark pigmentation does no harm.

      So dark skin has a benefit in the tropics without a cost.

      In non-tropical climates, white skin becomes an advantage and over time, is selected over dark skin.

      http://www.washingtonpost.com/.....28_pf.html

      But skin color isn’t hard linked to other genetic attributes. For example, dark skinned Asian Indians can be brilliant, but don’t seem to excel at athletics.

      Of course, I could be shot for saying anything on this topic.

    • 1sttofight

      Just look at Africa. Geeees….

    • TNpatriot

      I had this recent thought on racism. It is always said that black racism towards whites doesn’t exist because they don’t hold the power.

      Well now that we have a black president does that mean that they now hold the power and will now have to acknowledge the existence of black on white racism?

    • catie

      VMAN-I called them the “two punishments” because back on the campaign trail he said that “I don’t want my daughters to be punished with a baby”. So it would seem to the Messiah that kiddos are “punishments”. There are plenty of people who would love to adopt these babies including my neighbors who are actually from Africa and they are now Americans who cannot have children. Funny, neither voted for him as they thought he represented what they escaped.

    • VMAN

      I understand that melanin is a determination in skin color but wouldn’t there be some effect on that as races inter-procreate (I guess that’s correct)? I mean if everyone was running around naked then maybe a high melanin content in the skin would be needed.
      I did get that Catie about the first daughters. I remember when he talked about being punished with a baby. He is the jerk in chief

  15. joeblough

    The little green balls fellow gets far too much attention.

    He is proof of the stopped clock principle, to whit, even a stopped clock is right sometimes.

    He got a couple of things right. OK, fine.

    Ever since then he seems to get everything else, WAY wrong.

    To hell with the idiot already!

  16. How low the mighty have fallen. Used to be Charles was a respectable conservative blogger, whose part in Dan Rather’s downfall was an inspiration to many. Unfortunately, Charles has surrounded himself with a bunch of sycophants and turned his blog into an echo chamber. Worse, he has turned his back on a coalition opposing anti-Islamicization because some parties to the coalition have had associations with racist groups in the past.

    While I abhor racism in any way, shape or form, the term has become such an over-used and over-politicized epithet that it has lost its true meaning. Culture does not equal race, despite the continuous conflation of the terms among the Left and the MSM. Charles’ hysteria over possibly being called a racist is symptomatic of how the disease of political correctness is detroying truth, and shackling conservative voices of resistance to the Collective.

    During Clinton’s terms, I heard a number of sober, rational people discussing the possibility of eventual armed resistance to the continued attacks on individual liberty and traditional notions of virtue. Unfortunately, nutbars like Tim McVeigh and others used the so-called militia movement as a vehicle for advancing their insane and truly racist agendas, tainting the patriot movement and driving away good people. I’m not sure how now to separate, in the public’s mind, the difference between true patriots and the racist rubbish. But Charles’ approach is clearly suicide.

    I fear that the same unrest that began to boil over during Clinton’s term may return ten-fold during Obama’s. This is not what I want for my country or my children. But I am a true patriot, a son of liberty, loyal to the Constitution and the true spirit of America, and I will do my duty if necessary.

  17. Richard Romano

    I don’t know what happened to Charles either — his shtick about evolution is embarrassing. Fine, you support evolution, but you don’t need to call your detractors names and accuse them of “slowing” science…it’s pure rubbish since many of the progenitors of science were indeed religious. He recently called for Republicans to choose between moderates and far-right conservatives, such as Bobby Jindal (who would eat Johnson’s lunch on any topic).

    He uses rhetoric that is reminiscent of far-left liberals. Too bad — his posts used to be a good read.

    re: #439 MrPaulRevere

    “Charles, you have really struck a nerve here. I am disappointed to say Steve Gilbert at sweetness-light has chosen to attack you over this.”

    Steve Gilbert sent me several completely insane, abusive emails full of threats and rage during the campaign, accusing me of stealing his posts without credit — which I did not do.

    Just for the record. The guy is whacked out.

    http://tinyurl.com/bgvr9e

    This is a flat out lie. I did email Mr. Johnson about his practice of posting material from S&L without any credit. (Even images that I had screen captured, etc.)

    He denied everything and blew me off, quite rudely.

    I mentioned this on some of the threads in question at the time.

    Unfortunately for Mr. Johnson, I cc-ed my emails to him to several prominent persons in the conservative movement.

    Mr. Johnson seems to have made a long and well-documented habit of picking fights with other websites.

    He seems to have (as they say) “issues.”

    (For the record, he does seem to have stopped lifting my material since I asked him to stop.)

    • 1sttofight

      He has appeared to have gone off the deep end.

      Maybe reality is catching up to his ego.

    • proreason

      It must hurt to not be the CPAC blogger of the year.

    • Consilience

      Rush should remove the LGF link from his stack of stuff section of his website (which wasn’t up today—at least when I looked earlier).

    • gipper

      1st said, “Maybe reality is catching up to his ego.”

      I doubt it, 1st. Mr. Johnson seems to be an egomaniac. Egomaniacs ignore reality. Egomaniacs need to feed the ego and will often resort to dirty tricks–hence the website turf wars and the lifting of information without crediting the source.

      I’m not in the psychological field, but it’s very interesting to look at those vain souls who care more about furthering themselves to make them feel better about themselves. Take a look at Blago and Obama.

      Please stay humble, SG.

    What a complete load of worthless nonsense!

    So what if Ann Coulter is defending white supremicists?

    Apparently the term, “multicultural” can be applied to people like Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, or this clown Kamal Cambon but its racist if someone likes Coulter mirrors their actions…

    BTW the name Kamau Kambon doesn’t appear on the Hate Watch site and using the search engine on that site produced nothing either…

    Thanks for letting me know that LGF awash in faux indignation over Coulter’s defense is now a site NOT worth wasting time on…

  20. mybrotherkeeper

    I’ve heard a saying which can be very true: An enemy who you can befriend can become closer to you than even some of your closest friends. If the liberal democrats would ever show an ounce of mercy for some mistakes in judgment–wow, what a difference! But when they judge Ann Coulter by one standard and Obama by another, they make things much worse. I remember in the 60’s some of the blacks’ music was reaching out, like they wanted to be friends. Maybe it was not listened to. Today it seems only the conservative side reaches out– and we’re not listened to, either. Don’t kid yourselves, blacks who are racists, you don’t wear halos. You do wrong, too. This business about you not being able to hurt anyone or be racists–you disgust me! And Obama, you never show a shred of mercy for a conservative, but oh how you cut slack for black and/or liberal hate mongers!

      Anyone who could sit in Wright’s church and listen to his hate-filled bilge would have to be at least sympathetic to his inherent racist views—but the thug messiah has messianic standards not fit for mere mortals…

  22. ropatrick

    I read through nearly two thousand comments on LGF related to this post. I didn’t find a single one questioning the reasoning behind the post, much less disagreeing with Charles. So obviously he is removing them. How strange and immature. I don’t think he has much standing to complain about the antics of any other site or group considering his censorship of those that would disagree with him is about as low as you can get. By the way, I don’t recommend anyone else read through these posts. 90 percent are from people trying to be clever and failing miserably.

  23. Steve

    Folks, please don’t go over to LGF to post or email the site for our sake.

    We have had Mr. Johnson’s number for some time. As have many.

    And of course the recent PJM debacle has awakened even more to his (ahem) nature.

    If you want to know about him, read his obviously self-scribed and hilariously self-aggrandizing Wikipedia entry. (He popularized the term “Moonbat” and the phrase “Religion Of Peace” doncha know?)

    It’s really all you need to know about Charles Foster Kane Johnson. That and the preposterous article we posted to start this thread.

    Mr. Johnson might try to get some hits and attention for his site by attacking people and inventing controversies.

    But we have bigger fish to fry.

      Was careful not to mention SNL (or any other website). I was merely growing weary of his pro-evolution diatribes and his ludicrous attack on the awesome Ann Coulter was the last straw for me. Not the she needs me to stick up for her!

      p.s. Crap! I just went to his wiki entry. I had no idea he could have been the same Charles Johnson whom I listen to play the guitar. Dang, he can really wail on the axe! Oh, well…

      Recall the recent story about Ben Stein, who was forced out of a commencement speech because the virulent evolutionist lobby objected to him giving the speech. Charles Johnson, instead of condemning these clear mob tactics, wrote that he lost all respect for Stein since the release of his “dishonest” film.

      This is how a lib talks — Stein’s speech was to be about the economy, not about evolution. But to Johnson, it doesn’t matter — you support creation or ID, then you’re a nut and you should be silenced. The delicious irony is that he proves Stein’s main point in the film — that evolutionists instead of arguing points of view and discussing science, engage in intimidation tactics and smear campaigns.

      “But we have bigger fish to fry.” I’d say this sums up the situation nicely.

      In the midst of the biggest Socialist takeover in our nations history, attacking one of the most effective conservative voices we have speaks volumes about Mr. Johnson’s “conservatism”.

    Why the hell is Ok to be a black racist but it is against the laws of nature to be a white racist?

    I really want to know.

    • 1stToFlight, I offer my own estimation, based on the fine liberal arts education I received at Ohio University in 1996: (they didn’t teach me the following, I had to observe academics and their indoctrinated to learn this) Liberals are the true racists. The white liberal looks at a black-as-spades American and subconsciously thinks, "I’d hate to be him/her". They know that they couldn’t live with the exploration of that impulse, so they turn consciously into rabid accusers of anyone like you and me into a RACIST for pointing out the truth, no matter how obvious and well-researched the data may be. [similar to the way an old, sexually-repressed, cranky man sees a "Jezebel" in any young girl who may be showing a bare shoulder in public. The old man wants her, but is battling with himself to admit it.]

      The white liberal knows we’re right when we say that the African American community is committing 70% illegitimatacy in America right now, and it is because those responsible obviously can’t control themselves. And that it is WRONG to behave thusly.

      But the white liberal can’t live with themselves if they begin to give in to our truth. They "flip the script" on you and me, saying, "No, no, you conservative Neanderthal, it is only society that makes a poor black person in America into what they are today. Racists like you have dominated our nation with your WASP mores and paternal power structure, obviously resulting in dysfunctional patterns for the African American culture, compounded by the residual affects of 250 years worth of slavery." And that soothes their nerves just a bit, because they have not only shut the conversation down [we usually have more class in an argument than to get into their type of name-calling, so the conversation dies], but offered an "argument" for the various behavioral differences between African Americans and European Americans.

      It helps them sleep at night and gives them a chance to prove how non-racist they are in front of their peers.

      People like us volunteer to die for this “white culture”, while they scream “racists” at us and pat themselves on their backs as having “fought the good fight”.

      That’s why it’s ok for black racism to exist.

    You know, I read “Guilty” while on a plane sandwiched between an enormous woman who kept getting up to use the restroom and a young man with headphones who appeared to be suffering from Tourette’s and I still managed to grasp Ann’s real point in that chapter. It just proves my long-held theory that critics of hers never actually read her work.

    “It just proves my long-held theory that critics of hers never actually read her work.”

    Or they read it looking for “gotcha!” opportunities.

    Even when they aren’t there.

  27. DEZ

    Boy im gone for awhile and every thing falls apart, OK, maybe not.

    I read what Ann wrote, I saw it as an example, not defence.
    But then again I dont smoke a lot of hash on the California coast line.

  28. You know, having never contributed to LGF or spent a considerable amount of time there, I didn’t know any better that Johnson is this irrational and obviously money-driven. Mistakenly, I regarded him to come from a place of principle and integrity because of his demonstrated effort to go against the grain of the MSM to highlight the Left’s domination of our culture. I always considered Johnson to be one of us, to some degree.

    Seeing this disturbing defection from our beleagured side doesn’t make me feel sorrowful or regretful at all. Let this sabateur and opportunist jump ship. And all others like him should do so quickly, IMO. Let this movement of ours be cleansed of empty souls like Johnson. We need to expose MORE of them.

    It reminds me of Arianna Huffington and her fall from grace. In the mid-90’s I used to LOVE to listen to her. She beat up on Clinton and the entire Left so sincerely that even I, alas, was fooled. So fooled was I that I even called in to talk to her on an episode of Jim Bohannon’s Mutual Radio show on New Year’s Eve (1996). She was a guest along with a few opponents with Bohanon acting as referree. The other two pinheads were arguing for even more of a drawdown of our Armed Forces, and Huffington was a lone voice saying that Bill had already done enough damage to our military, so on, so forth.

    Then George Bush was elected. From nowhere Arianna Huffington went from sounding like a blonde Ayn Rand to a (Cha Cha) Charo Chavez. ("Charo Che"?)

    The opportunity for Arianna to "remake" herself after her famous divorce from a gay man made her change too many things.
    Apparently, Johnson has had some post-mid-life crisis of his own.

    Thanks, SG, for bringing this up to our attention. Let’s keep looking for the others. Once they open their mouths, I’m confident that our crowd here will help to expose them.

    Now I’m laughing out loud! Googled LGF (as I deleted it from my ‘favorites’ earlier today) and tried to access the site to check in on the lizards (some of whom are hilarious) and ‘Icarus’ Johnson has blocked my IP address from even viewing his site! Now that’s funny! What a puerile punk. Makes me step back and be evermore grateful that I have a full and complete life. Isn’t this the Internet equivalent of stomping your little feet and saying ‘I’m taking my ball and going home!’ lol

    p.s. didn’t The Kinks sing ‘Paranoia will destroy ya…’?

    When I think “radical racism” the first person to pop into my “clouded mind” is none other than the “wicked witch of D.C.” introducing not my friend or yours ms. h.o. I must stop here because there’s no doubt I will go too far commenting about this “newly born again American”.

  31. 12 Gauge Rage

    Before I found this site I tried in vain to register on LGF but the register was always closed. Good thing for me. I can’t believe how self destructive and spiteful Mr. Johnson has become. Thank you SG for letting me post on your site, and to everyone else for your humorous, well thought out comments.

  32. Steve

    Apparently, Mr. Johnson now deems Sean Hannity ‘beyond the pale':

    Little Green Footballs – Hannity’s Scaremonger of the Day
    http://littlegreenfootballs.co.....of_the_Day

    Once again his understanding is based upon a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    It really is to laugh.

  33. .
    Wow, CJ seems like one sick, deluded puppy. What a baby, he can’t take any dissent, can’t argue back, nothing. I know lots of good people who were ‘blessed’ to be able to ‘register’ before his precious registration was (closed). They must feel real disillusioned by this pompous and confused failed ‘musician’.

    Just look what he has in a post on this day,(Mission Statement of the Day – Blogosphere | Tue, Feb 17, 2009 at 11:33:51 am PST) this is how deluded he is:

    “If you argue that it’s vitally necessary to deport the entire Muslim population of the United States, you are ADVOCATING MASS MURDER.”

    How does he arrive at that lie?

    First of all, most anti-jihadists don’t advocate that. They advocate stopping or severely limiting future immigration of Muslims, and throwing out Radical Imams who preach Jihad, and shutting down Jihad training camps and throwing out radicals, shutting Islamic schools that teach Jihad, stop making concessions to Islam; and making all Muslims denounce Jihad (although that would be meaningless due to taqiyya.)

    May God help the apparently insane Charles Johnson, whether or not he believes.
    .
    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    let yourself go insane

    get so frustrated with life
    that you turn against allies
