5. Thanks for that info

I just assumed it was the same Johnson when the name splashed it the news the other day

Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs is still an odd duck in many ways, but I really enjoyed his divorce from the kooks in the republican party:

Why I Parted Ways With The Right

By Charles Johnson
30 November 2009

1. Support for fascists, both in America (see: Pat Buchanan, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.) and in Europe (see: Vlaams Belang, BNP, SIOE, Pat Buchanan, etc.)

2. Support for bigotry, hatred, and white supremacism (see: Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter, Robert Stacy McCain, Lew Rockwell, etc.)

3. Support for throwing women back into the Dark Ages, and general religious fanaticism (see: Operation Rescue, anti-abortion groups, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, the entire religious right, etc.)

4. Support for anti-science bad craziness (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

5. Support for homophobic bigotry (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

7. Support for conspiracy theories and hate speech (see: Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Birthers, creationists, climate deniers, etc.)

8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

9. Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide (see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source)

And much, much more. The American right wing has gone off the rails, into the bushes, and off the cliff.

I won’t be going over the cliff with them.

8. I knew there was some sort of figurative divorce between him and wingnuts

but never read how/when/or what precipitated it. This gives a glimpse at the context. Thanks for posting.

6. Chuck C. Johnson is a fucking creepy little treasonweasel.

It appears to me that he is one of those types that got pulled into the alt-Reich by means of the Pickup Artist/Men's Rights path, since he is so fucking insecure he refers to himself as an "alpha male" frequently. LMAOROTF!

If Charles Chuck C. Johnson is an example of an alpha male then I am Queen Beyonce, Michelle Pfeiffer and Maya Angelou all rolled into one.

What a floor-pooping, racist, sexist jackass he is.

And beyond the links we see here, I think he is at the center of getting all those funds (Russian dirty money and bitcoins) to Ryan and McConnell to CHEAT in the downballot campaigns.

Also, clearly he is at the center of the email hacking crimes, so I hope Mueller assigns an agent or two to research him and his connections -- and his so-called alpha male ass should prepare for being in federal prison for a long, long time.


on edit: Sorry for all the f-bombs. With the pardon and the trans ban and my phone breaking yesterday so I can't follow the news like I usually do, and with having a demented fuckstick sitting in the Oval Office where Hillary is supposed to be sitting right now -- it means I am running very, very hot today.

7. Chuck Johnson is the one refusing to cooperate with Senate intel probe

 

‘Alt-right’ figure who set up Assange meeting refuses to cooperate with Senate intel probe
Michael Isikoff

A controversial “alt-right” journalist and provocateur who met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London this week says he is refusing to turn over documents and emails requested by the Senate Intelligence Committee about any contacts he has had with Russian agents, telling Yahoo News he has no intention of cooperating with the panel’s investigation.

“I’m absolutely not” going to cooperate with the committee, Charles C. Johnson said in an interview after returning from London, where he had set up a meeting this week between Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy.

“They’re going to have to subpoena me and then they’ll be sorely disappointed,” he added. Johnson said his lawyer would raise journalistic “privilege” issues to resist turning over any communications he might have had with Russian nationals or agents. The committee had requested the material in a July 27 letter it sent him, asking that the documents by turned over by Aug. 10. Johnson has since posted the letter on a website he runs, GotNews.

Johnson’s stand would appear to make him the first figure in the Russia investigation to take such a publicly defiant position — refusing to cooperate in any way with the committee probe. Even prospective witnesses who have repeatedly derided the Russia investigations, such as longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone, have said they will comply with requests from the Senate and House intelligence committees (although Stone in particular has been dodgy about whether he will respond to questions about the identity of a “backchannel” figure who tipped him off to material Assange was about to publish.) Another key figure, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, initially refused to respond to a committee request and requested immunity, but later turned over people sought by the panel. A spokeswoman for committee chair, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., declined any comment about Johnson.

Johnson is an intriguing figure to committee investigators for multiple reasons: He is an inflammatory “alt-right” journalist and entrepreneur who was banned from Twitter two years ago for appearing to threaten a Black Lives Matter activist. Despite this, he maintains apparent ties to some officials in the White House as well as Assange, whose organization, WikiLeaks, has been described by CIA Director Mike Pompeo as a “nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

9. Trump would only pardon him. He needs to go to jail for other than Federal crimes.
