Paper Dollop

Thread downstairs was getting kinda full. Had to do something about it.

*BLT = Black Liberation Theology = Critical Race Theory
and yeah, Charles was against it before he was for it.

Of course, the title assumes that Gus really means what he said here:

So, that assumption made, we of the BRC have decided to shower our readers with a few gifts in eulogy, as this particular lizard was the butt of many, many jokes here at DoD and therefore shall be missed.

First, we might as well direct you toward memory lane, and link Gus’s official tag (every thread we mentioned Gus). There’s some good stuff in there.

As for highlights, who can forget this?

Or when Gus decided to chide DoD for posting a thread on Christmas eve and Christmas day, after posting 31 comments and an LGF Page over the same time span?

Or when he managed to post an amazing 903 comments in a single week (therefore inspiring the twitter doppelganger “Gus_903“)?

We could go on and on, of course.

But perhaps it would be more fun to make this a bit more interactive, and use The World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine™ to preserve Gus’s legacy for all time.

The Charles Johnson Robert Byrd Post

Interesting that Charles decided to subtweet to Joel Pollak, author and senior-editor-at-large of Breitbart.com about the late ex-Klansman and U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV).

Byrd was the founder and recruiter for the West Virginia branch of the Ku Klux Klan, and although he left the organization, his voting record on race never changed. He is relevant to current events as President Biden praised and supported Byrd’s race segregation and anti-civil rights policies.

Charles Johnson knows this. So why did he send this post down the LGF Memory Hole? Because his assessment in 2007 was correct.

Fortunately for us, The Way Back Machine provides us with all the info we needed to recreate the original (via the BRC Nil Stooge LGF Template). The text is verbatim; only the format differs slightly from the original. Right click on the image for larger view.

[Kudos to BRC Engineer ISTE for finding it on the WBM & h/t to Charles for reminding us.]
