Exposing Poonawalla’s Johnson

Fetched from the RetroBin:

A few years later (2009) Jihad Watch posted this:

I first encountered Aziz Poonawalla during my dialogue of the deaf with the spitting, sputtering hateblogger Dean Esmay, as Poonawalla was and may still be a contributor to his blog. Poonawalla and I also have had several unpleasant exchanges, during which — as you can see if you read them — he didn’t demonstrate an overwhelming commitment of honesty or integrity. —Robert Spencer

Aziz Poonawalla is an anti-semitic muslim propagandist who’s been at it for a while, but that was then and this is now, at least according to Charles Johnson, and something happened. Now they’re best buds.

“Never had any animus…” Charles, you’re a liar. Everyone knows it and we’re here to remind them of your hypocrisy.

Here’s the Tweet, and here’s the lowdown on #RatherGate that exposed Charles Johnson as a fraud.

    Johnson can always claim that he came up with the idea on his own, but somehow that stretches the limits of credulity.

    Chunky was soon to embark on the Cheeto Jihad that stretched the limits of skin elasticity, and annihilated the limits of several succeeding sizes of sweatpants.

    As for honesty and integrity, he never had any. We all know now about his deceitful dealing with George Duke, and his too-late apology for same. I also had personal experience with his lying in 2005, the first time I was banned, when he made up a story about how I threatened him by email after I was locked out of commenting — then, as now, there was no evidence presented of this falsehood. Lying liars lie. 😆

    • Bunk X says:

      First banned in 2005. Now THAT’s impressive.

      • Octopus says:

        I was kind of feisty back then. 😆

        • rightymouse says:

          You were our beloved Stinky Inky. 😆

          • Octopus says:

            I was awesome. Even Nodrog paid tribute, in his now-extinct blog about the banned and stinky. God bless that man. 😆

          • dudebro says:

            Was? You’re still awesome!

          • Octopus says:

            Thanks, dude. 🙂

            Back then, I was irritated by the way certain cliques were enforcing certain dogmas in the comments at LGF and elsewhere. I was active on Delphi Forums back then, along with helping to moderate a now-defunct Red Wings forum. I like to stir the pot, too. It was a fun game to play, for awhile. 😆

  2. Octopus says:

    This is what ISTE is attempting to replicate, using nothing but a manually operated slow cooker. I was skeptical of the effort required being worth the finished product, but I totally see the point now. This is truly the art of cookery.

    • ISTE says:

      Dorian over at Blogmocracy is doing it using a beer cooler. Filling it with hot water and then putting steaks in. The temperature needed is 135F for a medium rare steak. That is nearly the temperature water comes out of the hot faucet. Because a cooler holds several gallons there is a big thermal mass and it cools slowly. You only need to check it and add more heated water occasionally.

      I am using a 4 quart crock pot. Tonight I am really pushing it because I have slightly over a pound of steak in it at the moment (1.16 pounds) so my tiny crockpot cools down fast and heats up fast. Hell of a struggle getting it stable after I put the steak in.

      I have all the parts laying around to build this… https://learn.adafruit.com/sous-vide-powered-by-arduino-the-sous-viduino/sous-vide

      At the moment I am just monitoring the temp not controlling it automatically. That is how I collect the data to draw the chart.

      Some people will ask “Why is all this relevant on a blog dedicated to Charles Foster Johnson?”

      I just have a single word answer…..



      • ISTE says:

        90 minutes until she feeds me!!!!

      • Bunk X says:

        It’s an interesting but tedious process than makes eating animal flesh difficult. Who likes boiled chicken?

        • Octopus says:

          Boiled chicken is underrated! Not only is the meat tender and juicy, you also get the delicious broth in the deal.

        • ISTE says:

          Ah but it is perfectly cooked, juicy chicken then seared at a very high temperature.

          Not brave enough to do chicken yet but tonight is steak and eggs.

          Steak and eggs. Different temperatures and timing. then add veggies to meal. I need at least four sous vide cookers.

          Sad thing is I have all the electronic parts scattered around on the floor. Just need three more crockpots and getting my shit together,

      • Octopus says:

        You could defrost and cook a salmon in this painstaking manner, but why not just eat it like a popsicle, on a hot California day?

  3. Octopus says:


    Your life turned to shit in 2009, Fatass. You just ignored the truth as long as Unicorn Messiah and his minions were in power. Now you’re reduced to begging for pennies, trapped in the bunker beneath an avalanche of avoirdupois. Nobody wants to smell like Charlie. 😦

    As far as Gus goes, with his nightly descent into unintelligible grunting after a day of retweeting left-wing glurge and occasionally fighting with Berniebros, there is nothing left to say about how a man can throw away his life without providing anything of value to society. Except for perhaps an example of how NOT to live, with some comic aspects tinged with schadenfreude.

    • dudebro says:

      Is goose in the US legally? Maybe ICE needs to stake out dumpsters In Colorado?

    • OLT's Screw Your Immigration Status You Anti-American Fuck says:

      Uh, Gus-Gus? Your team made it bad to say “illegal” and “alien”.

      So this is a result.

      Like it, dumbass? We tried to warn you.

      • Bunk X says:

        Seems like we offered support several times over the years, and we suggested he set up a GoFundMe account for donations to fix his bum leg and provide vector control for his side of the Visqueen. Johnson didn’t even go that far.

  4. Octopus says:

    There’s a poonawalla buried beneath your pannus, Chunky. That’s real enough. We wish you all the best on your Comeback Tour!

    • Octopus says:

      Now why would somebody who knew Rather used forged documents knowingly to try and smear a candidate, who continues to lie about the incident 13 years later while bitching bitterly about the way he was mistreated, want the crazy old prevaricator to launch a successful comeback? Is it because Chunky identifies with Rather’s fall from grace, as both men’s trajectories took similar dives after venturing too close to the sun?

      Perhaps Chunky feels he could pull off a return to former glorious heights of popularity and influence, if an old fraud like Rather could manage it. Keep dreaming, Fatass — that ship has sailed, and sunk. You pulled the plug yourself. Own it. As Bukowski says on his tombstone, “Stop trying.” Embrace the suck.

    • Bunk X says:

  5. rightymouse says:

    Thanks for the hat tip, Briareus. 🙂
    I am embarrassed to say, however, that Poonawalla’s name was not familiar. 😯

  6. rightymouse says:

    Fatso sure is in bed these days with people he used to say he despised. Unreal.

  7. rightymouse says:

    Two words. Grow up.

  8. Pakimon says:

    Witness the searing pain of massive stinging butthurt. 😆

  9. rightymouse says:

    Wow! Who knew Fatso was such ahttp://twitter.com/Green_Footballs/statuses/857725083866939392 misogynist??

  10. dezes157 says:

    Chuck, take a long look in the mirror you disgusting, nauseating tub of grease.

  11. Octopus says:

    Another youngster who is 1000X the musician Fatass ever was or will be. Looks familiar…hm.


  12. Octopus says:

    Checked your GoFundMe recently, Chunky? Agree, it’s horrible. Going nowhere. But don’t you give up! Victory is right around the corner.

    • Pakimon says:

      Things got horrible for Chunkles when he “Parted Ways With The Right” and burned ALL his bridges while doing it.

      I think Chunkles is finally realizing that was a mistake of a lifetime.

      He knows there’s no going back so he’s boxed in as being a Twitter clown with a failed, clunky blog with no choice but to double down and triple down on stupid 24/7.

      I’d feel sorry for the old, fat, discredited, ponytailed fraud but he’s so obnoxious and pretentious, I just can’t do it.

      Mocking and ridiculing “The Man With The 15 20 Year Old Avatar” is much more fun and satisfying.

      Does that make me a bad person? 😆

      • Pakimon says:

        On second thought, the actual MOMENT things got so horrible was the instant Pam sharply rebuked his gropey, clumsy advances at that PJ Media party.

        For Pam, it was like trying to fend off a ponytailed *octopus. 😆

        *Not to be confused with Octo. 😀

        • Octopus says:

          Gropey, clumsy…and sweaty. It was either really humid that night, or Chuck was just dripping with flop-sweat working himself up for the Big Move. The move that was met with a stunning stiff-arm reminiscent of Jim Brown rambling down the sideline, brushing aside defensive backs like a boss. The palm-print on his greasy forehead is still visible in the right light.

  13. Octopus says:

    When you’re an unemployable wastoid like Gus, every night is Friday night. Party on, Gus. 😆 (but winter will be back before you know it, grasshopper)

    It’s true. When I think of God Emperor Trump raining nuclear annihilation down on our enemies, the oral waterworks go crazy…

    • Bunk X says:

      How can it be a “Winter Storm Warning” when it’s Spring?
      Hope Gusano still has a cache of Sterno so he doesn’t wake up dead.

      • TreBob says:

        Global warming can reverse time. I read it on the internet.

        • Bunk X says:

          I’d forgotten about that. Thanks.

          • rightymouse says:

            Also, polar bears reproduce like crazy, but forget how to swim & drown.

          • Octopus says:

            The Polar Bear Tourism Organization, which is actually run by polar bears, is encouraging science non-deniers and environuts worried about Teh Warmening to come on up and bask in the balmy sunshine on a comfy ice floe, bobbing in the Arctic Sea. They are truly hungry for such visitors, with lots of cubs to feed this spring. They promise to pose politely for selfies with humans and hopefully their pets, such as comfort dogs and cats. They love to play, so bring toys and snacks. 🙂

  15. OLT's Screw Your Immigration Status You Anti-American Fuck says:

    “Gropey, clumsy, and sweaty” – Octo has me reminiscing about my time as a young would-be Lothario.

    Good times. Good times.

    • rightymouse says:

      Have we met before?

      • Octopus says:

        It’s one thing when you’re 16-18, trying to unhook a confounded brassiere in the dark. That’s a learning experience, or a teachable moment. And it’s fun. I mean, really fun! 🙂

        When you’re in your fifties, and you pin all your hopes on the Rand-quoting siren in your blog’s comment field, who happens to be somewhat curvy and come-on-big-boy (in your own ponytailed head), and then you make your desperate fumble at the brass ring only to end up spitting virtual teeth thanks to the unexpected force of the siren’s palm-strike, well…that’s going to leave a mark.

        Such a miscalculation could happen to anyone, but most men would go home, get drunk, and realize they’d misjudged the mutual ion-flow of attraction. Chunky went home and killed his blog, along with hundreds of thousands of dollars of potential income. What else had he killed? His marriage. His soulless jazzy noodling career. His photograpic…no, wait. That was never a thing. His cycling career, that’s what also went over the precipice, with something brown and sticky between its spokes. What’s brown and sticky? Yes, a stick.

      • minnowredux says:

        and the sad/happy aspect of this comment by Charlie is that he totally doesn’t recognize himself in his comment above!

        Hey Mr. Amateur Vanity Project! I guess you and Mark Zuckerberg will be mealing together tonight – huh?

        What are we having? Fish sticks?


  23. minnowredux says:

    I am not sure how the rest of the adults feel, but I am doing pretty well in the Trump Era. People are beginning to spend money again and I am busier than ever.

    Here, I will translate this for you Charlie. When I say I am busier than ever….. that means… I am making more money than ever….

    It is such an amazing concept. It transcends all of my white privilege, all of my inbred racisim, all the pent up misogyny, hate and ignorance and general horridness that I wear on my filthy, worn Republican sleeve.

    You see. The way it works is…. I work. Then I get paid.

    That is. I sit in front of my computer. I use my brain. I get my creative juices flowing. I design shit and then other low life scum actually build what I design.

    Isn’t that hip and groovy Charlie?

    And if I told you how much I made this week, you would weep I am sure.


    Go Trump!

    Go good guys!!

      I owe you one, Octo. I almost started capping that crap, and it would have cut into our “Breaking Bad” Netflix Night. We’re starting Season 3.

      • Octopus says:

        We finished watching the speech, had a couple of beers, and watched a very funny comedy show: https://www.netflix.com/title/80117534

        Incorrect politically, and very funny. Quinn and director Jerry Seinfeld get it, about NYC and its colorful history. Would cause a riot on UC-Berkeley campus. 😆

        As for “Breaking Bad,” you’re just getting to the good parts. Lucky you.

  33. Octopus says:


  34. Octopus says:

    Almost 17K viewers like my cut-and-paste job on Al-Jarreau-Jazeera. I get daily notifications of new comments. Lots of people have copied and re-used my clip-job. Am I approaching Chunky’s Dan Rather-ish fame yet?

  35. Octopus says:

    My buddy Ed’s first hit. Wrote it when he was 18, after a visit to a drug shelter. The first time I heard it, I was blown away just by the fact of such a song making it to pop radio, and of course the powerful lyrics.

    I understand the simps at Pitchfork published a scathing review of his latest album, along with rude dismissals of each song, including the stadium rocker (Castle On The Hill) I posted the other day here. Fuck those imbeciles! This kid has heart to spare. You bastards want soulless noodling, I can direct you where to find it. 😆

  36. dudebro says:

    The “stupidest” man on the internet (that isn’t even into women!) vs. Chuckles, on a Saturday night. HaHa (Nelson laugh)

  37. rightymouse says:


    • Octopus says:

      He thinks they “normalized” Trump, I bet. Because they didn’t melt into puddles of hysterical grease like Fatass did last night. 😆

      I have to say, I really enjoyed that speech. Some pundits think he was too brash and insulting, but that’s what the media deserves, with their constant attacks on Trump and every member of his family. Just as he did in the campaign, he swats them aside like so many buzzing gnats. He treats serious people with the proper respect, such as the premier of China.

      • rightymouse says:

        Trump speaks the language of the forgotten man & woman.

        • Octopus says:

          He really does. It’s still damn refreshing. The effect it has on the libturds is a wonderful tonic for the spirits, too.

    • Bunk X says:

    • Octopus says:

      The concept of holding down a real job as a productive member of society is so foreign to Gus, he can’t begin to countenance such a life. How fitting that Chunky’s closest ally is a complete bum and drug addict.

    • minnowredux says:

      If I were out of work and unskilled…. I would jump at a paper mill job! There is one close to where I live and a lot of people I know work there. It beats a LOT of other jobs in terms of salary and benefits.

Possibly seat covers, but it’s not clear.

          • minnowredux says:

            That reminds me of this idiot I know (ahem) who answered a dating site ad and didn’t think too much of it when the “gal” who placed the ad thought it would be better to skip the phone conversation (ahead of meeting) and just meet for coffee.

            Being the gentleman that my friend is, he didn’t think a thing of it.

            And so, the two lovebirds met for coffee.

            “And my! What a low voice you have Grandma!”

            Needless to say… an Adam’s Apple was an integral part of this experience…. which (according to my friend) was too bad.

            I guess he likes to listen to Lou Reed a little more often now.

            And, I think he then instituted a new policy on requiring at least one phone conversation before meeting.

            Type thing.

            And, because my friend was a little dense about things, he (much, much later…. – like, the next day) ran an ad on a similar web site. Only to find that the same gal from before called in and left a message.

            I think that was about the time my friend gave up on dating websites.

            ‘n shit.

  44. minnowredux says:

    Even worse when you throw “Johnson” into the mix…
