Joe Biden was promoting platform censorship and claimed that people died of COVID-19 because of Facebook. Charles is partially correct in that Facebook and others are actively squelching the free flow of information – the exact thing that tyrannical governments have done (and still do). Post anything you like as long as it agrees with The Office of Approved Opinion.
In 2009, Charles attempted satire and failed, yet he was accidentally prescient:
Charles wanted a Facebook account, yet he couldn’t do it. He spent much time castigating others for joining Facebook “groups” that (according to Charles) included neonazis, anti-semites and other unsavory types, and everyone in such a “group” were guilty by association. Robert Spencer joined one such group (either accidentally or due to their deception) and suddenly he became an anti-semite himself. Once Charles discovered that bizarre connection, all of Spencer’s Facebook “friends” became neonazis including Pamela Geller.
Due to his paranoia, Charles could never join Facebook without vetting EVERYONE who connected with him lest he be painted with his own guilt-by-association brush. He has no control – no way to ban anyone, no way to prevent others from reading his blog-pimping unless he kept his posts private. That’s a deal breaker for an attention whore.
Pure obsessive-compulsive paranoia, then and now; Charles Johnson gets a vicarious thrill watching the Censorship Games.
BTW, the LGF groups are still there, Charles.
What is a “patronizing Irish pub crawl?” Charles? “They’re not fit to crawl an Irish pub?” Does anyone know what that means? Charles, are you fit to crawl to the mailbox? Can you still crawl?
BTW, Charles, what year did you finally get your GED?

Charles F. Johnson, Credentialed Professor of Economics & Master o fArts at #Rumpswab University, Dimisses Arthur Laffer, BA, MBA, Ph.D as a Right Wing Crackpot. Pheew.Posted: June 2, 2019
Wow. Just Pure Wow.
From JFK to RWR to DJT, boosting tax revenue by lowering taxes has worked every time it’s been tried, and every time the US economy exploded, creating more prosperity for all. The basic concept is not new. Arthur Laffer himself said “The Laffer Curve” wasn’t his own invention, that he learned it by studying Muḥammad ibn Khaldūn al-Ḥaḍramī (14th century Tunisian muslim) and 1st Baron Keynes. (early 20th century British liberal). Those guys were right-wing crackpots, according to Professor Johnson.
Charles, fascism IS socialism.
Does your brain abcess block history? Are you trying to get your Salon gig back? Good God, you’re a transparent illogical mess.
Happy Easter, Charles.
Just for fun, we’re gonna start publishing the unpublished draft archives. This one is from Daedalus.
Charles wants people to subscribe to get add-free service to his website, wants to prevent other sites from making revenue. He advocates using Google to beat the paywalls.
Protip: want to read an article behind a paywall? Search for the title at Google and click through from there. Works w/ a lot of sites.

Stay classy Jazzy.
So El Gusano Pobre complains about being blocked by people “who I never even interacted with.” Hunh.
A quick search through the BRC Archives suggests Gusano may be telling the truth, but he had access to one and he certainly used it. More than one account on that list whose owners never Tweeted to @Gus_802 were instantly blocked from reading his Tweets directly. Did he keep a block list? No. He kept the link and undoubtedly contributed to it.
That list of Twitter accounts was compiled by Furious Burkha in 2012, and comprised those contrarians she deemed unworthy, their followers, and those they followed. With a bigoted algorithm like that I’m amazed that the list didn’t morph into thousands, but then again, she was never the sharpest bulb in the LGF Crayon Box.
Here’s the Pre-Banned List in full regalia [or click here].
From The Diary of Daedalus Draft Retro Archives: “ProLifeLiberal makes demands on Israel while admitting he never met a Jew.”Posted: July 29, 2018
This post by Daedelus has been sitting in the DoD draft file bin since 20 February 2012. Might as well give it some air. Here it is, verbatim, unedited.
The mentally imbalanced and Islamic radical, ProLifeLiberal now is making demands on Israel. He said he would only be OK with peace with that nation if they accept his demands.
This shows the delusions of this fool. ProLife thinks he can make demands on a nation. Then he gets into a very interesting exchange with Alouette.
Wow, so he makes demands on Israel, criticize their government and admits to not knowing any Jewish person? In a rare moment oif sanity, Marxist loon Obdicut calls out ProLifeLoser.
In answer to Obdicut’ question, ProLife stays online all day fantasizing of being some great Jihadi warrior spreading Islam. He’s someone with mental issues who doesn’t live in reality. He really needs to be watched.
The supposedly Pro-Israel Charles Johnson was on that same thread. He had nothing to say on this subject.
Little Green Footballs is at the cutting edge of website design. World renown web designer, Charles Johnson announces another technological achievement that will leave his rivals in awe!
I am sure Apple and other Tech giants will be banging on Charles’ door!
Charles will be in mourning today as a Leftist icon has died. Cuba’s communist dictator Fidel Castro, a man who took peoples property and bushiness, is at last dead.
HAVANA (AP) — Former President Fidel Castro, who led a rebel army to victory in Cuba, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents during his half century rule, has died at age 90.With a shaking voice, President Raul Castro said on state television that his older brother died at 10:29 p.m. Friday. He ended the announcement by shouting the revolutionary slogan: “Toward victory, always!”
Castro’s reign over the island-nation 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Florida was marked by the U.S.-backed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 and the Cuban Missile Crisis a year later that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. The bearded revolutionary, who survived a crippling U.S. trade embargo as well as dozens, possibly hundreds, of assassination plots, died 10 years after ill health forced him to hand power over to Raul.
Castro overcame imprisonment at the hands of dictator Fulgencio Batista, exile in Mexico and a disastrous start to his rebellion before triumphantly riding into Havana in January 1959 to become, at age 32, the youngest leader in Latin America. For decades, he served as an inspiration and source of support to revolutionaries from Latin America to Africa.
His commitment to socialism was unwavering, though his power finally began to fade in mid-2006 when a gastrointestinal ailment forced him to hand over the presidency to Raul in 2008, provisionally at first and then permanently. His defiant image lingered long after he gave up his trademark Cohiba cigars for health reasons and his tall frame grew stooped.
“Socialism or death” remained Castro’s rallying cry even as Western-style democracy swept the globe and other communist regimes in China and Vietnam embraced capitalism, leaving this island of 11 million people an economically crippled Marxist curiosity.
Castro finally got his wish, he died and will be burning in hell. Charles will be weeping and knows he will suffer the same fate.
The election is over and we can resume our regular Charles bashing. Today he blames Hillary loss on what he deems the Far Left.
There was lot of well-poisoning in this election, and a fucking horrible amount of it came from the far left.

Charles is far Left by any standards, so this group he is talking about must be Stalinist.
