Charles Johnson’s Echo Chamber of Wonder.
The best summary appeared at the close of the debate:
Meanwhile, for all the little green rah-rah for Faucahontas, Drudge posted poll results (9:45pm PST):
Yep. Rush Limbaugh (radio talk show host, author, entrepreneur, philanthropist, founder of charities that raised tens of millions of dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Marine Corps–Law Enforcement Foundation & the Tunnel to Towers Foundation) received the Medal of Freedom.
Congrats & Dittos.
Once the Medal of Freedom was awarded, Charles Johnson’s hatefest blew a gasket.
Way to go, lizards. You’ve outdone yourselves.
Uh, sure they did, Charles. Let’s see what others had to say on Little Green Footballs:
Yes it is, um, Charles, except for one thing. Microsoft’s translator app sucks donkeys. Here’s the actual Tweet:
Here’s the script cut-n-pasted directly from that tweet:
به مردم شجاع و رنج کشیده ایران: من از ابتدای دوره ریاست جمهوریم با شما ایستادهام و دولت من همچنان با شما خواهد ایستاد. ما اعتراضات شما را از نزدیک دنبال می کنیم. شجاعت شما الهام بخش است.
Here’s the Farsi to English Google Translate translation:
Here’s an enhancement of that translation:
Charles Johnson, you blew it again, just like you did with the laptop menu board, the Air Cav Hat, the Tennessee State Flag, the Ohio State Flag and your credibility.
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.
So I dragged out the old BRC waders (they still smell like ISTE) and took a brief stroll through the LGF wallows. Not much of interest, mostly reposts of tweets, misplaced hatred, and a picture of a vinegar pie (whatever the hell that is).
Check out the number of UpDings on Number 43. Is it bigotry, a call to violence, or just snark? It appears to be all three. “Preach it Brother!” indeed.
[Personal to Mr. Bratwurst: Don’t bother with the homeowners’ association. Call the local Fire Marshal. They’ll come out and do a pressure test of the entire system, find the leaks (if any) and force the building owner to pay for repairs. I’ll also wager that the fire sprinkler system is not the culprit. –Briareus]
