It’s true, and here’s a prime example.

In 2011, Chen Zhen left this unfinished draft, and it’s not certain where he was going with it as it contained only three of Charles’ comments in text format. Here they are in the order Chen logged them, unedited, and as found in The Wayback Machine.

LOLOLOLOLOOOOL! OMG CHARLES WHERE DO WE START?!
First of all, Diary of Daedalus has never been a “far-right anti-muslim hate site.”
Secondly, regardless of your opinion of Glenn Greenwald‘s politics, at least he’s honest about his reporting and has written many unbiased stories, backed up with verifiable facts. Charles Johnson has been envious of him for decades, and his “criticism” of Greenwald amounted to almost non-stop harassment on Twitter. No debate, just insults and name calling, and Greenwald had enough.
Breivik had also written a “manifesto,” a rambling dissertation that listed those he admired and who influenced his opinions. Think Progress, a far-left website (now defunct), created a bar chart with names of people mentioned in Breivik’s manifesto, with the number of citations. All those people were well-known for their aggressive opposition to radical islam and muslim terrorism and its proliferation around the world.
Within hours of the Oslo Massacre, Charles Johnson began pointing fingers at those on the Think Progress chart and accused them of being responsible for the acts of a madman. Once the Manifesto was made available, we obtained a .pdf copy, and noticed someone missing from the list of Breivik’s heros and influences: Charles Johnson & Little Green Footballs.
We took the .pdf, converted it to MS Word, did a simple word search, and added the data omitted by Think Progress. These were the results, easily verified by anyone. Both charts are based on the same data.
Charles Johnson, after blaming everyone in Breivik’s manifesto as culpable for the atrocity, found himself near the top of the list of the very same people he condemned in July 2011.

Charles “updated” his profile image and no one gave a foster, but he wanted to be sure we didn’t miss it. We noticed that someone had messed with it to mask the photogrodys, so we restored it to something closer to reality and gave it our best shot at a worthless mark.
We couldn’t get the suet pallor quite right, and he still appears a bit narrower in the neck department than in real life – not that he has either one. The un-enhancement indicates some semblance of a ponytail (judging from the terrified stray grays flailing against the hidden scrunchie sucked up tight to his no-neck on the right). Crack spackle hides the pumas in his crevasses.
His head was likely not vertical either: his torso would have been leaning backwards and no chair back could take that kind of abuse for long.
Got bored of that non-project real fast, but a dark mockery oozed from behind the rec room couch, from under the cat stuff, and whispered, “What’s behind the mask?”
Up in smoke is where their money goes.
Yeah, that’s a graph of actual and cumulative donations from data burgled from Charles Johnson’s own begging bowl, spanning June 2015 through March 2020. Except for an initial windfall of $2,583 in June, there hasn’t been a lot of activity. After 4 years and 7 months, the big boy has garnered just over 53% of his goal of $20K. BTW, I didn’t add the “smoke.” Excel did.
Here are the monthly totals (sans the June 2015 outlier). The unusual bumps in donations are a mystery, but the months with no donations whatever are no surprise.
Some folks here (including me) suspected that Charles has been priming his pump by taking his winnings and plowing them back into the fund for appearances. Breaking out the “anonymous” donors from the rest doesn’t prove the theory, and there’s not a lot of correlation.
Many or most of the anonymous donors could be legit, but they can’t be vetted – only Charles can do that because GoFundMe ID’s contributors and allows the host access. (The host can also edit the donors’ love notes as we’ve noted previously.)
GoFundMe also does something else: they charge fees. The going rate is 2.9% plus $0.30 per donation. As of 31 March 2020, Chuck’s begging bowl contained $10,615.00, so
[($10,615 x .029) + (237 donations x $0.30 per)] = $378.94 that he won’t get.
Oh yeah, almost forgot:
Happy 67th Girthday, Charles!

Biden wins for “phoniest emotional outburst.”

Biden’s fine with sanctuary cities too, but he’s taking a much longer time to say it.
Biden’s makeup goes all the way over his balding head.
I feel for the makeup artist who had to make Biden’s scalp look natural.

Biden’s had too much Zoloft.
Biden’s forgetting to complete words. It’s the lightning round!
Charles Fri, Aug 22, 2008
Please pick Biden. Yes. Couldn’t ask for an angrier, more arrogant Dem.
Charles Thu, Oct 2, 2008
Biden: I’ve dealt with violence against women.
Biden’s grinning like a goon at her when he thinks the cameras are not on him.
Biden is beginning to look very tired.
Biden: “This is the most important election since 1932.” WTF?
Who would have thought that it would be Biden who started crying?
Biden’s voice is approaching a monotone. He’s lethargic.
There are going to be some koolaid drinkers voting for Biden.

I’ll bet Andrew Breitbart wrote this headline for Drudge Report:
Biden Compares Republicans to Nazis…

Occasionally The BRC checks the Little Green Footballs ALEXA Statistics, and there appears to be an anomaly in the fabric of the futon vortex. Something happened on 20 September 2019 that gave Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs a significant bump in traffic.
According to ALEXA, in less than two months (52 days) LGF traffic increased by an astounding 143%. Did Charles Johnson post breaking news? No. Did he increase the number of headline posts on his front page? Yes. Does clicking on the LGF front page automatically tally all posts on the front page as having been read? Yes.
Compare today’s graph with this one from 25 September 2014:
In other words, Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs was ranked by Alexa at -73K in September 2014, and as of December 2019 it’s at -307K.
That’s some impressive work, Charles.
Okay, so we noticed that Little Green Footballs’ popularity DOUBLED in a mere 90 days according to Alexa Blog Stats. Yeah, that’s not unusual, considering that LGF has been in a death spiral for a decade or so. No, not unusual at all.
Perhaps somebody’s been messing with the hit counter again, eh, Charles?
To be fair, maybe the statistical goose is due to Johnson’s coverage of the “INQUISITION” that began Tuesday,13 November and continued on Friday,15 November 2019, and that everyone in the world wanted to get Charles Johnson’s insightful opinion. Yeah, sure they did.
We also noticed that the LGF posts no longer have dates, i.e., the day and month of the posting. Instead, the posts are listed as “1 day ago,” “2 days ago,” “456 days ago,”etc.
Why would Charles Johnson do that? Pheew.
