On the Anniversary of Charles Johnson’s Foray Into Astroturfing: Killgore’s Midnight Run


There he goes again, fighting a dead man.

Andrew Breitbart enhanced Charles Johnson’s blogging career by introducing him to the players who in turn promoted Little Green Footballs and escorted Johnson into the Big Tent with fanfare. Instead of walking away with dignity, Charles chose the path of the pissant. Not only did he shun his former mentors, he turned on them, created and promoted lies, reposted invented unsubstantiated claims, and astroturfed his benefactors. Then, like a true coward, he still plays the victim when others call him on his own hypocrisy.

On 13 September 2016, Charles tried once again to erase his own history of astroturfing, but let’s roll back the clock to 18 September 2009.

Seven years ago today The Flying Monkeys of Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs began an astroturf campaign against HotAir. With no evidence to back up Johnson’s accusation that HotAir was a racist website, LGF operative Killgore Trout paid them a visit while the moderators were asleep and provided the “evidence” himself by posting offensive racial comments and daring the moderators to delete them… beginning at 12:34AM and running to 2:01AM. You can read the full diatribe here, but here’s a snippet:

Killgore Rant Condensed

Killgore’s Midnight Run set a precedent for Little Green Footballs that was recognized throughout the political blogosphere, and the running joke was that if racist comments showed up on someone’s website it was due to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs.

Killgore 947
Killgore 965

Charles Johnson continuously accused Breitbart and others of not policing comments on their websites. Little Green Footballs typically garnered a couple of hundred comments, and Charles employed volunteer “Monitor Lizards” to do it for him. Breitbart’s “Big Journalism” had well over ten times the number of comments per post than Little Green Footballs, so it was impractical to expend the effort to review and/or edit all of them.

And Johnson’s astroturfing didn’t stop there.

Johnson holds the 2 of Clubs and four Post-It Notes, then claims he has 5 of a kind. The first liar never has a chance, Charles.

    Killgore got to say, “I hate niggers!,” and it was clear he meant what he was saying. That’s okay, old boy, you came from the sticks, and you don’t just lose all that ratty upbringin’ overnight, especially on the Overnight Raid Shift. And then Yawn Clod Killy got shitcanned himself, for not toeing the line at the fascistic swamp where only Virtual Niggers are welcome.

    The wifey and I really enjoyed this doc-flick this afternoon, before the crazy football began. The “over-educated” (I would say, “misled”) semi-special snowflakes work at a parking lot adjacent to bars servicing a university town. A couple of them are very droll, but the general tone is one of bitterness towards less-educated townsfolk and upwardly-mobiles who diss the attendants, never realizing the attendants maintain a superior attitude towards such bouzhie drunkards. We both used to live and work in the university town of A Squared while attending college, so we know the types presented. Our kids did, too. Now that we’re old and jaded by existence, the attitudes of these young folks seem very quaint and silly, but we were also young once, and kind of wish we still were, despite all the downside of being idealistically stupid.

  3. Octopus says:

    Nope! You can rest uneasy, Chunky. Nobody gives a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut about your idiotic parroting of the Soros-sponsored daily Waddling Orders.

    Except us, of course. We REALLY dig ya, baby! You’re so groovy. You should put out a long playing record with your philosophical musings, with maybe some eerie desert music on there as background. Probably would be a major underground and college hit.

  4. Octopus says:

    Nope! Despite the worst efforts of the Unicorn Messiah, we are still here, and many of us still want to continue the Great Experiment. Losers like you should be gone, and need to be managed better, but the rest of us working stiffs will carry on as per usual, supporting ourselves and our families through intelligent educational choices followed by a lifetime of steady employment. Yes, sometimes we need to change jobs due to economic cycles and whatnot, but we don’t give up and move into somebody’s garage to take drugs and thumb away at our cellphones and behinds.

    It a beautiful Sunday morning and Pakimog ready for some football!

    Today, Pakimog’s Jaguars travel to San Diego to battle electric guys in late afternoon slugfest!

    Will Jaguars bounce back after heartbreaking loss last week against Packmen from Bay of Green which made Pakimog more peevish then fat ponytailed blogger?

    Pakimog hope so. Being peevish make Pakimog crave Cheetos and Mountain Dew and want to sign up for Twitter account which is fate worse than death!

    Save me Jaguars… You’re my only hope! 😆

    • Pakimog says:

      Actually, Pakimog has other hope.

      Pakimog’s other team, the Eagles travel to Chicago to play Bear men in Monday night showdown!

      Eagles win last week prevent Pakimog from succumbing to terminal peevishness so Pakimog hope they continue winning ways!

    • Pakimog says:

      Also on tap, the Detroit Lions host Tennessee Tuxedos!

      Hopefully, Lions win to give Octo football trifecta after wins by Michigan and Michigan State yesterday!

    • Pakimog says:

      Pakimog don’t want to leave rightymouse and abu out so Pakimog submit this:

      Sorry abu, since Eagles battling Bears tomorrow, Pakimog had to do it! Posting a fetching lady Bears fan would be bad mojo for Pakimog this week.

      Pakimog also figure rightymouse would appreciate this fine specimen of football manliness.:grin:

    • deplorable pineapple says:

      I hear the Jags have improved so I’m not holding out much hope for the Chargers to win today.

      My Bolts will probably snatch defeat from the jaws of victory again like they did last week against KC. Bolts were up 24-3 in the 3rd quarter and lost 27-24.

      Enjoy the game Pakimog!

      • Pakimog says:

        Pakimog knew he forgot someone. Sorry Pineapple, Pakimog get forgetful in old age.

        In spirit of sportsmanship, Pakimog post sporty good luck complete with underboob! 😀

        Pakimog just hope it don’t bite Pakimog and Jaguars in ass….

    The Wolverine and Spartan victories were so awesome yesterday, I just know the Lions are in for a drubbing in their home opener. The new cheerleader squad will be sobbing through their pompoms. Stafford will throw four interceptions. The Same Old Lions will make their triumphantly terrible debut in front of the beleaguered faithful.

  9. Octopus says:

    I need two pro teams to root for, like Pakimog. I have two college teams, so why not?

    I’m gonna have to go with the guy who was in the Big House yesterday, tossing a football back and forth with Harbaugh before the game. I select the New England Patriots as my auxiliary football team!

    • Octopus says:

      Lions went kablooey today, as I feared. Lots of critical injuries, loads of dumb penalties, and a final interception to salt it away for the Titans. Yowsah, the SOL are back!

      The cheerleaders got about five seconds of tv-time, but they looked nice and peppy. Hate to see them getting their illusions shattered, though.

    A comment on the latest bombing incident.

    Many, many years ago an American citizen said to me (and I paraphrase because it was a very long time ago. sometime in the late 1970s or 1980s)

    “”London is a beautiful city but there is trash on the street everywhere!!!!!! The english people just throw it on the street.””merican citizen asked.

    I replied… “”The reason for that is, there are no trash cans.””

    “Why?” the American citizen asked.

    I told her the reason. “A terrorist organization puts bombs in trash cans, only way we can stop it is to remove trashcans. Where do we now put our trash?”

    30+ years later where ever she is in the USA I hope she remembers that conversation.

    LATEST NEWS!!! The trio of dangerous episodes began Saturday when a pipe bomb exploded inside a plastic garbage can in New Jersey’s Seaside Park at 9:30 a.m. Investigators eventually found several devices “wired together” that did not detonate in the same garbage can.

      Final straw..


      1993: Child killed in Warrington bomb attack
      A young boy has died and at least 50 people have been injured in two bomb blasts close to the heart of a busy shopping centre.
      Emergency services said the dead boy is believed to be four-years-old.

      Another older boy suffered grave injuries when two bombs, hidden in dustbins, exploded in Warrington, Cheshire.

      Twelve of the injured have been hurt “very seriously” as eyewitnesses said the first explosion drove panicking shoppers into the path of the next blast just seconds later.

      ‘Huge hand grenades’

      The explosions shattered the Golden Square shopping mall in Bridge Street just after 1212 GMT.

      The mall was packed with shoppers brought out by the warm spring weather ahead of Mother’s Day tomorrow.

      The bombs went off in Bridge Street, the first is understood to have been outside a British Gas showroom and the second went off near Argos, the catalogue store.

      Police said the bombs had been planted in separate cast-iron litter bins which had the effect of turning them into huge hand grenades.

    Shrillary’s latest campaign gambits, the introduction of the alt-right and the rebirth of the Birther thing, backfired horrifically for her in the polls. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next! 😆

  20. Octopus says:

    Last night Fatass made a huge ass of himself, trying to say it wasn’t a bomb in NYC, and that Trump was wrong for calling it a bomb and a terrorist attack. The Streak is intact, of course, as the rational deduction by Trump turned out to be right on the money. Chunky is still very butthurt about his humiliating idiocy when you’d think he’d be well used to such by now. He’s tweeting away angrily, trying to smear Trump and journalists who acknowledge he was right. He hits rock bottom, and just keeps digging, while stamping his chubby feet. 😆

    WTF? When I click the link it’s about how Teh Donald was spectacularly right about it being a terrorist bomb in NY. When the media was waiting and hoping it was the elusive violent right-wingers. How does that make Chubby Feets right about anything?

    And this HRH_Orchid seems a bit of a nutjob. In her Twitter she quotes Buddha “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth”. Yet she’s clearly backing a pathological liar for Preezydunce who has many times tried to hide the truth. Chubby Feets always attracts the weirdo women eh, like Irish Hosehound and Charmin-uta.

    Also I Googled her Buddha quote. First hit: http://fakebuddhaquotes.com/three-things-cannot-be-long-hidden-the-sun-the-moon-and-the-truth/

    It originates from a real Buddha quote but has been dumbed down and badly paraphrased by idiots who get their “wisdom” from other idiots on the internet.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A suspect wanted in the bombings that rocked Chelsea and Seaside Park, New Jersey was captured Monday after an intense manhunt that ended in a gun battle with Linden police.

    The arrest came just hours after the FBI, NYPD and New Jersey State Police issued bulletins and photos of Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan with an address in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

    The gunfight erupted after Linden Mayor Derek Armstead said he owner of a bar reported someone asleep in his doorway late Monday morning. A police officer went to investigate and recognized the man as Rahami, police and the mayor said.

    And who has pledged to bring in millions of more foreign Muslims from back-assward countries? The SHRILLDABEAST!

    Also Obungle reminds us to be on the lookout for Islamaphobia – “fear” is the code word.

    He called on Americans to show the world “we will never give in to fear.”

    “We all have a role to play as citizens to make sure we don’t succumb to that fear. And there’s no better example of that than the people of New York and New Jersey,” the president said. “Folks around here, they don’t get scared.”

    And he took a pilgrimage to Afghanistan and came back a super devout terrorist…er Muslim. That should’ve flagged someone’s watch list is Trump’s point. That is if the FBI were doing anything other than trying to white wash the Shrillbeasts as merely stupid instead of criminal. I read they had up to 100 agents on “Project – Shrillery’s a dumb ass” task force.

    This here is extremely rich:

    They should also denounce the FBI for not arresting Trump, the terrorists for doing terror every day and creating fears about Shrillary’s plan to import millions more of them, and the weather for not providing enough hurricane-y global climate chaos to underscore the Left’s commitment to Teh Warmening.

      Besides the hacked emails, the extremely low turnout for Hillary rallies (ha, you feel worse after you leave) in the primaries was another hint the Dim primary was rigged entirely. Now, the polls show her neck and neck (ha again, especially afte 9-11). Who are you going to believe CNN or your own eyes. Her winning is more a question of can they steal enough votes, not actually winning by real votes:

      • Octopus says:

        That’s quite a document, there. The difference in support from Real People, not talking heads or libturd polls, is actually shocking.

        • OLT's Knows Who Did It says:

          The only problem is getting Real People to the polls to actually VOTE.

          Here’s some WaPo luv about 2012: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2013/03/12/the-states-with-the-highest-and-lowest-turnout-in-2012-in-2-charts/

          Assuming one can believe WaPo (big leap of faith), it is easily seen that my fellow Texans are basically split down the middle about whether to vote or just bitch … allowing Minnesotans to go be blue or purple or whatever the hell they are. The article makes the point that the most populous states are the turnout cellar-dwellers, as many voters apparently feel that they are outnumbered or unnecessary for victory so they may as well just drink. This despite early voting and all sorts of other concessions to the reality that getting to the polls on one certain day during certain hours just ain’t happening for some people (especially the few still employed).

          The media whores and charlatans take advantage of this inherent laziness and/or lack of focus and beat the drums for their preferred outcome. Voting is discouraged by declaring “likely” winners for months and months ahead of the polls, in addition to the typical propagandized fare and selective editing. The Real People must be disconnected from the process and made to feel that they cannot affect it; they stay “home” (they’re probably working), and then the protected class of voters take the free bus ride and the coupon to Church’s and go vote as the slip of paper tells them to.

          I go and vote every time. The local elections are even more dismal, with more poll workers than voters for hours at a stretch and turnouts in the teens.

          A Republic if we can keep it. But if you don’t participate, what of it?

      Someone lead Grandma to her rocking chair. She’s so tired. Oh, and take that knife away from her. She’s still dangerous.

    Wait…what? Trump has a slush-fund, too? Can I get one?

    Take a gander at Weinstein’s timeline, if you want to see how a cray-cray modern Lefty thinks about politics. 😆
