Here’s an update to my earlier article on New York Magazine editor Abraham Riesman’s story about Chuck Johnson. Riesman said that in 2008, Chuck Johnson told him he had seen video of Barack Obama calling Deval Patrick the n-word, and that Chuck himself used the n-word repeatedly in a “blaccent.”
Following my publication of Riesman’s tweets, Johnson actually phoned Riesman to intimidate him, and deny he said anything about seeing a video. And this is a perfect example of what Chuck Johnson does — spews hate speech, then tries to intimidate people who call him out for it.
UPDATE: Just got off the phone with Chuck Johnson, who called me on my cell to clarify some things about the above tweetstorm
He says he worked at the NYSun for three weeks and has no memory of me. The conversation may have happened, though he disputes details.
He made it emphatically clear that he NEVER thought Obama was going to lose the election. And that he only “strategically” uses the n-word.
He recalls *reading* about Obama using the n-word in a conversation with Deval Patrick. Doesn't recall a video.
To clarify: Johnson said he *himself* only uses n-word “strategically,” for “taboo-busting” purposes. Doesn't recall using it in that convo.
Johnson made it emphatically clear that he would never insult Deval Patrick. Additionally: “He lived down the street from my parents.”
His 3wk NYSun job was amorphous, but he mostly did fact-checking for EIC: “The title i was putting on my resume was 'Seth Lipsky's bitch'”
Johnson says the conversation I recall may have been a “prank” he was pulling with a coworker we both knew. He said he liked to joke around.
Johnson: “I do remember making a joke in the newsroom about Biden being assassination insurance, and everyone was like, 'That's not funny.'”
Though he denies using n-word with me, he did recall speaking ill of Sarah Palin in 08: “I think I called her a bitch once. Not to her face”
I won't continue boring you. He asked me to publicly clarify my tweets, and I have. Thanks for calling, Chuck.
And in case you had any doubt about whether Chuck is still stalking LGF:
A postscript: Abraham Riesman said it was “a civil phone call,” but make no mistake — Chuck was enraged by his tweets. Here’s what he posted to his private Facebook account after he saw the LGF article:
Note the date on that Facebook post, by the way: June 19. I didn’t post Abraham Riesman’s tweets until June 23. So Chuck was actually lying to Riesman when he said he only saw the tweets after they were embedded at LGF.

A New Chuck Johnson Story Surfaces: He Claimed He Saw Video of Obama Calling Deval Patrick the N-Word
A reader emailed to let me know about the latest bizarre story to emerge about cyberstalker Chuck C. Johnson; New York Magazine editor Abraham Riesman brought this out on Twitter a few days ago.
Periodic reminder that I worked with Chuck Johnson at the NYSun and he told me he had a videotape of Obama calling Deval Patrick the n-word
That's not a rumor, it really happened
And he was convinced that it would cost Obama the election (this was summer of 2008)
Wait sorry, he said he KNEW a guy who had the video, and that he'd SEEN the video. Didn't have it in his possession.
Important detail: Chuck, in recounting the video, did not say “the n-word.” He said the actual word repeatedly
In a blaccent
In other news, it has now been 18 days since Johnson updated his blog — you remember, the amazing journalistic masterpiece that was going to utterly destroy the mainstream liberal media? Not much destroying going on there lately. (Unless you count Chuck’s career.)
For your overnight listening enjoyment, here’s Marc Maron’s interview with President Barack Obama, in which Obama uttered the dreaded N-word to make a point about racism, and prompted Fox News to launch into paroxysms of fake outrage that are still going on tonight: WTF With Marc Maron Podcast - Episode 613 - President Barack Obama.
President Obama should just give up trying to sneak these sinister schemes past the monumental genius known as Alex Jones. Jones is blowing the whistle on yet another Obama plan to start a civil war by grabbing all our guns, this time using Caitlyn Jenner to distract us.
Sounds crazy — but just crazy enough to work.
“I don’t like being force-fed constantly this weird, one agenda,” Jones said. “The obsession, it’s got to be from like five, six years, because I cover media, with trannies and transvestites. Just constantly force-feeding it, shoving it down my throat, pun intended, as if it is the only thing in the universe, the only thing in the world. What’s behind the agenda?”
Jones said the sinister agenda is to make “the coolest thing to be is a tranny or a transvestite” and glorify a “creepy old guy.”
Lots of buzz today about the latest Seymour Hersh conspiracy piece, published by the London Review of Books, claiming that the official story about the death of Osama bin Laden was a Big Lie; but the White House is heatedly rejecting Hersh’s claims.
In a piece published in the London Review of Books on May 10, Hersh disputes the official account of the operation and intelligence that led to bin Laden’s death. Relying heavily on an individual identified as an “retired senior intelligence official ” Hersh reports that bin Laden had been held prisoner by Pakistani intelligence since 2006, and that Pakistani intelligence cooperated with the Central Intelligence Agency and US Navy SEALs in the raid to kill bin Laden.
In a statement tweeted by CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, White House national security spokesman Ned Price said that Hersh’s report contained “too many inaccuracies and baseless assertions” to fact check.
“The notion that the operation that killed Osama bin Laden was anything but a unilateral US mission is patently false,” Price said.
“As we said at the time, knowledge of this operation was confined to a very small circle of US officials. The president decided early on not to inform any other government, including the Pakistani government, which was not notified until after the raid had occurred,” Price said.
“This was a US operation through and through,” Price said.
Seymour Hersh is justly famous for his exposure of the My Lai massacre in 1969, but since then he’s done much to diminish his reputation, often veering into outright conspiracy theories. This piece is emblematic of that decline; riddled with inconsistencies and largely based on statements from a single anonymous source.
Here’s the statement President Obama gave earlier today on the violence in Baltimore; he appropriately called out the rioters and looters as criminals, but also made the very serious point that the violence distracted from “multiple days of peaceful protests” focused on “entirely legitimate concerns of these communities in Baltimore” that “frankly, didn’t get that much attention.”
You can almost sense the glee Obama feels when he cuts loose and tells it like it is about climate change deniers like James Inhofe.
Oh, it’s all in fun, of course. Except it’s deadly serious, and Obama isn’t the only one who should be getting angry about it. For real.
I know it’s only April, but I think we may already have the most insanely paranoid wingnut conspiracy of the year — because it’s difficult to imagine anything getting crazier than this one: Is Obama Arming Iran for a Secret Reason?
The link goes to American Thinker, and you may think you know what the “secret reason” is already (probably something to do with Obama being a secret Muslim commie, right?)… but trust me, you don’t.
I’ll let Thinker Jeannie DeAngelis explain the reasoning that leads her to conclude Obama is helping Iran get nuclear weapons … because a nuclear winter would put an instant stop to climate change!
Surely the president is well aware that U.S. government computer models predict that even a small nuclear war anywhere on the planet could trigger “unprecedented” global cooling. With global warming the culprit, cooling, however it’s accomplished, would provide a quick fix for the guy in need of a boost in the polls.
Sure, a small-scale nuclear war would cause global cooling, further reduction of the ozone layer, and harmful ultraviolet radiation. That, in turn, would usher in death, disease, and drought due to things like lack of rainfall.
But ultimately mass starvation and plague could deliver positive results, particularly for the growing problem of overpopulation. Then, in due time, as millions die off, the president’s credibility would be greatly improved among organizations concerned with controlling world population, like the U.N., and his legacy as a transformative leader would be secured.
If Iran lobbed a nuke at Israel, smoky, dusty, ashy high-carbon clouds would block the warmth of the sun. That, coupled with radioactive fallout, would usher in a “nuclear winter” capable of instantly stopping the destructive heating trend Obama so passionately believes is wreaking havoc in places like the Florida Everglades.
But most importantly, thanks to superb forethought and unprecedented planning, global warming would cease, and global cooling would commence.
Either way, for many — including the entire nation of Israel — the perplexing question for a long time has been: why is a U.S. president helping the Iranians acquire an atomic bomb? The thought of it didn’t seem to make much sense.
But now, the idea of a small-scale nuclear war being environmentally friendly could actually be a stroke of genius.
On Earth Day, at the edge of the swamplands, the motivation behind the former president of the Harvard Law Review negotiating with the Ayatollah may be falling into place. Could it be that Barack Obama’s long-term goal is to help Iran acquire the nukes necessary to finally put an end to global warming?
Some swivel-eyed loon out there in a survival bunker is going to have to work really hard to top this one.
