Weird... erratic blogger Charles Johnson blocks my account at Little Green Footballs

The case of Charles Johnson's descent into odd and erratic behavior keeps getting stranger.

I recently learned Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs has been attacking conservatives Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty, and others. It's been going on for awhile but somehow I missed it. Anyway, a few days ago I started looking at what he had been saying and concluded Johnson's attacks are mean-spirited and off-base.

I weighed into the debate over Charles Johnson's behavior in a very small way by posting negative comments about Charles on Twitter here and here, then I left a negative comment about LGF on Stacy McCain's blog (check the comment thread in this post).

That consitutes the sum total of my negative comments about Charles.

But apparently what little I did was way too much for Mr Thin Skin: yesterday he banned me from logging in at Little Green Footballs. (What's odd is I'm a not exactly major blogger, which shows you he is not only vindictive, he is petty.)

(Seriously... he has time to troll through the comments section at Stacy McCain's blog to list the people he wants to blacklist???)

In the latest development, Charles is now hinting that he might attack Michelle Malkin and Robert Stacy McCain.



Charles has every right to run his blog in the manner he chooses, but people are starting to notice he acts like a cretin.

BTW, don't tell Charles, but getting into a fight with Michelle Malkin is not a smart idea; he'd lose. But given how erratic Charles has been acting, I expect he'll do the dumb thing and start a fight with her anyway.

UPDATE: Stacy McCain has a new post up: "Holy crap! Threatening Malkin?"

I did notice LGF had gone sour several months. I almost pointed out some irresponsible statements, but figured no one cared in the first place. I would never read that blog again, and I don’t see links to it either. It doesn’t take long for word to get around, and there is no going back, once a blog is suspected of theatrics. The lack of trust in the MSM can testify to that loss of readership. The best feature of the Internet and blogs, is that you can move right along to the sites that interest YOU. No one has a monopoly on opinion, it‘s like a free market.

The blog Tony Kansas City, is also a site that runs hot and cold. I might check it out for a laugh, and a look at his pictures, but for news? I don’t think so.
I replaced TKC with 'Kansas Meadowlark' for another view of KC politics. Checking out several opinions appeals to me. The Red Star just offers their same old DNC talking points, no reason to bother with them. You know what they are going to say, and they never even surprise you with some original thought once in awhile.

How's it feel to be censored Kevin. You do it on here all the time so don't cry when someone does it to you. What goes around comes around. POS

A reader suggested Kansas Meadowlark, a blog I had never heard of before. I took a look and discovered this blog has several videos on tea protests in Kansas.

Yeah right Kevin, you keep believing that. You removed all the post about "newspaper trails" or do you consider that profanity? In the meantime you let some of your posters say whatever they want while you remove anyone that exposes you for the POS you are!!!!! Like I said before, you would have made a good nazi or comunist....

Your just a bitter little boy without a job. Someone that got fired because you were unable to perform at a level that would keep you employed. Had you never been canned, this site would not even exist....

No church today or do you go only when it serves your position? I'm surprised they would let you in the door after some of things you and your followers say on here. Perhaps they don't know and you don't say anything about what you are about...

The little trolls here probably add to life in general what they add to this blog, nothing.

...Les hasn't the guts to post under his own name. Typically of the lefty loser, he blames the readers who quit the SacBee for his having been fired. He blames McClatchy Watch for exposing the Bee drivel. He blames everyone but...Les, for Les's losses.

It looks like CJ has sent you to the Cornfield too.

I guess he either wants to burn his bridges completely or he completely believes his own bullshit that he's the father of the blogosphere. If he's walking back to the left like Andrew Sullivan he forgets that AS has a long journalistic career and his temporary move to the right was only a personal grudge against Howell Raines of the NY Times for firing him. About the same time that Raines was pushed out back in May of 2003 was about the same time that AS found out that he wasn't so enamored with Bush. Bicycle Guitarist might think he has a new career with MSNBC in the offing, but he doesn't realize that he's just a temporary useful idiot for them. The DemSM isn't about to hand a job to the guy who took down Dan Rather.

Kansas Meadowlark is one of the hidden secrets of Kansas politics. It is data based and excellent research by a conservative. Unlike most blogs that offer a lot of opinion and very little hard data, the Kansas Meadowlark site is a wealth of information on who funds who in Kansas politics, which judicial appointees were major contributors to Kathleen Sebeljevich, etc. Excellent, excellent site if you want to know, not just guess, what's going on in Kansas.

McClatchy Watch said...

John -- agreed, I'm going to add it to the blogroll.

Oddly, I never saw Kansas Medadowlark as a blog. I just saw it as the correction department that the KC Star refused to enlist. I've never seen anyone quite so capable of dissecting the drivel and correcting it with the truth in the manner he does.

The Star would be a wildly successful enterprise with Bottom Line and him at the helm.

Agreed. Both are top notch folks who have put service to community above personal gain and they deserve our respect and admiration.
