After reading about the dust-up, it occurred to me that Charles could be exposed as a hypocrite by using his own methods. CJ uses what I call a "Six Degrees of Extremism" (or Six Degrees of Racism/Euro Fascism, etc) political parlor game.My goodness! Because I'm a reporter and not a conspiracy theorist, it never would have occurred to me to attempt such vile guilt-by-association tactics. But if God told Lydia to send me that e-mail . . . Well, the Lord sure does move in mysterious ways!
He condemns Robert Spencer for "associations" with "extremists"* and you for "connections" to white supremacists, yet he adds Daily Kos to his blogroll and approvingly links their posts, which contain the exact kind of material and links to people that CJ uses to excoriate his new targets.
Based on his own criteria, CJ himself is now a racist, white supremacist, anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi fascist. Here's how:
DKos approvingly featured a video from the neo-Nazi website Vanguard News Network, gave detailed instructions on building a bomb and posted conspiracy-mongering Truther diaries, a presidential assassination fantasy as well as anti-Semitic and racist material. Markos Moulitsas is a business partner in Vaster Books with Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake, which DKos blogrolls and approvingly links.
Hamsher infamously photoshopped Joe Lieberman in blackface and recently called 9/11 Trutherism "mainstream."
Don't forget Moulitsas' first guest diarist at Daily Kos, the late African-American blogger Steve Gilliard, who Kos stated "inspired me to keep writing.' Gilliard called Michael Steele a "Simple Sambo" and put the then-Maryland Senate candidate in blackface. Sure, it was at a different site, but they're still "associates," right? Using CJ's own methods, below is more proof of his "extremism" at the LGF-associated DKos, which:
Connections!!111!!!11! About the SLPC-the milblog This Ain't Hell noted the SLPC listed the American Legion under their "Hatewatch" category and smeared conservative service members and vets.
- approvingly linked to and quoted from neo-Nazi website Stormfront
- approvingly linked to white supremacist Hal Turner's site (or as CJ called it when he condemned Pamela Gellar for unknowingly running a Turner story, "promoting" & "running agitprop from neo-Nazis." However, Gellar didn't actually link to Turner, just to a blog that based the story on a random Live Leak video that CJ says is based on a Turner story)
- posted a cartoon of the KKK whipping Michelle Obama, which CJ tagged "racism"
defended Hezbollah supporters
- claimed the "Jewish Lobby" controls media and US foreign policy
- blogged about what it called "Holocaust Hucksterism"
- engaged in what CJ called a "homosexual slur theme" about Lieberman, accusing Israel of "terrorist attacks"
- imagined a "world without Israel." CJ called it "blatant antisemitism."
- posted what CJ called "Convenient Election Time Anti-Semitism" (Iranian Holocaust cartoons)
- rehashed false USS Liberty conspiracy theory-CJ called it "antisemitism" anti-Semitic. Another diary about USS Liberty . CJ called it "antisemitic"
- posted "(p)erhaps the most sickening, hate-filled antisemitic diary ever at Daily Kos." Blood libels, "the Mossad killed JFK" and "Zionist tentacles." (at bottom of post) contains so much anti-Semitism, much of it labeled and documented at LGF, that I can't list it all.
All the Best,
UPDATE 2:40 p.m. ET: Wait a minute, something just now occurred to me . . .
Mad King Charles attacked Pamela Geller (Jew). He threatened Michelle Malkin (married to a Jew). He denounced Stephen Green (Jew). How long before CJ starts taking ads from Hezbollah front groups and quoting The Secret Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion?
Of course, Johnson will deny this, which would make him . . . a denier. IYKNWIMAITYD.
But then again, this sort of thing protects CJ against any "racist" accusation. He can always call as his character witness Billy McKinney: "The Jews have bought everybody! The JOOOOOZZZZ!"
