Little Green Footballs’ Charles Johnson Breaks With the Right
Tuesday, December 01, 2009 at 11:19 am
Way back in April, I talked to Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs about his very public arguments with fellow “warbloggers” whom, he believed, had gone off the rails. Johnson told me that he’d never considered himself a “conservative.” But last night he put up a scorching post announcing an official break from “the right.” Among his reasons: “Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide” and the mainstreaming of fringe attacks which he denotes as “witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source.”
It’s an interesting post to read today as the president announces a troop escalation in Afghanistan — and much of the media Johnson denounces is attacking the decision anyway.
