In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo terror attack, anti-Muslim ranting at right wing blogs has reached an insane feverish pitch, totally out of control, and not a single blogger or commenter is denouncing it. It’s off the scale; I’ve never seen it worse than this.
For example, at Breitbart “News,” whose editor John Nolte was recently invited on Meet the Press, they’ve posted a video of Ralph Peters on Fox News calling for the Muslim world to be reduced to “smoking ruins and crying widows,” and it led to an outpouring of incredibly vicious comments calling for genocide; at last count, 4,342 of them.
There’s so much of this stuff it’s impossible (not to mention absolutely sickening) to look through it all, but here are some of the most recent comments, hidden by default because they’re unbelievably horrific.
Also, wipe out the kids and you will not need to come back.
the medieval savages need to be destroyed.
Well said !!! Extermination of scum Muslim terrorist needs to being NOW !!! Feed so called prophet muhammad to the pigs
We need to treat the Muslims the way we treated American Indians back in the 1800’s. Col. Peters ideas sound good, but Col. Chivington’s ideas seem better.
Three simple words. Kill. Them. All.
I wish the CIA would engineer a ‘bug’ which, after caught by Muslims as an STD by donkey and goat secks, causes all their body hair to fall off.
Bring out the giant can of Raid!!!
Repeated Arc-Light missions deploying Neutron ordnance from Pakistan to Morrocco. Followed up by “bugs”
the colonel is right, we need to start bombing them back to the stone age. Yemen needs to be obliterated and then we take out the boko haram
As there are more Muslims than legal citizens in the US, offing everyone isn’t in reality possible. Given that this tit for tat will continue until mankind becomes extinct.
unpopular controversial opinion ahead….
but dont leave behind widows or kids.. these people will continue the goals of their dead husbands and fathers. they all must die.
LOL. KILL ‘EM ALL
ALL OF ‘EM
MEN WOMEN CHILDREN
ALL OF ‘EM
I like him………..he sounds like me……
Obama is a Muslim and wants to turn the USA into a south-american toilet. So fat chance implementing all these great ideas.
I’d much prefer to see Islamic genocide than American genocide. The islamist will never ever stop trying to take over the world and demand that every living breathing human pray to Allah. Eff that. If the islamists snatched you like they did James Foley and so many others, you would change your tune really quick especially as you see the knife headed for your throat.
This isn’t unique to Breitbart “News.” You’ll find this hate speech all over the right wing sites today; it’s their business model to incite it.
This one will go down in the annals of Chuck C. Johnson’s very worst failures, an utterly ludicrous and flat out stupid post titled: BREAKING: We Can Conclusively Prove That #PrinceAndrew Underaged Prostitute Photo Is Fake - GotNews.
Chuck has gotten it in his thick head that a picture of Prince Andrew with “underaged prostitute Virginia Roberts” is a fake, and he’s calling on a real expert to help him prove it: @FlippingOffCat, a random Twitter account with one follower, whose timeline consists mostly of pictures of people … flipping off cats. Yes, really. That’s who Chuck is referring to as “our analyst.”
Gotnews can conclusively prove that the photo of Prince Andrew with Virginia Roberts, the alleged underaged prostitute is a forgery.
The photo [below] is said to date from 2001 when Roberts was underaged and in London was provided to the Daily Mail by Roberts in 2011.
We consulted with experts in photography and analyses performed using the computer program, Image-Pro Plus by MediaCybernetics.
The key to investigation is the size of the pixels. You would expect a photograph to have the same pixelation throughout. And yet the sections with Andrew and Virginia have different sized pixels that become clear when you zoom in.
Our analyst writes:
Virginia’s and Andrew’s facial photos were taken using different cameras, different shutters speeds; therefore; at different times. Pixels in the photo of the brunette and Andrew are a better match, yet not exact.
It is 99.8% likely that the photo of Andrew and the brunette [Jeffrey Epstein assistant Ghislaine Maxwell] were taken by the same camera, with the same shutter speed, at the same time.
However, the photo shadows, color gradients, and pixel sizes of Virginia Roberts indicate with 99.9% certainty that her photo could not have been taken with the same camera, shutter speed, or at the same time as the photos of Andrew and the brunette [Maxwell]. Higher resolution settings were used to photograph Andrew and the brunette [Maxwell], and neither match the lower quality resolution settings of Virginia’s photo.
DIFFERENT SIZED PIXELS, folks. If you know anything at all about how digital images are composed, you’re laughing already. By definition, pixels in a digital image are all the same size. That’s how they work. There’s simply no such thing as a JPEG with “different sized pixels.”
Chuck isn’t just wrong here, he’s off in outer space. Did he get taken in by a deliberate fraudster? Could be, because if we examine the “proof” provided to him by @FlippingOffCat, we see what looks very much like a deliberate attempt to deceive. Here’s the comparison showing “different sized pixels:”
(By the way, the image shows the subjects’ right eyes, not the left.)
I knew this was bullshit as soon as I saw it; so I loaded the photo into Photoshop to do my own comparison, and it quickly became obvious what @FlippedOffCats did - he or she grabbed two different sized selections. The one on the right was a smaller selection, so when zoomed in the pixels appear larger.
This can’t have been an accident — you have to try to do something like this. It’s much easier to simply use the same selection area over. Here’s what these two areas look like with a selection of 50 x 54 pixels, zoomed in 1000%.
The pixels are exactly the same size, because they have to be. That’s how pixels work.
It’s hard to overstate how massive the fail is in Chuck’s post. He looks like a complete ignoramus here.
I hate to even give his ridiculous theory the credit of arguing about it, because he’s literally the only person in the world who thinks this photo is fake (well, and any wingnuts he managed to convince with his post), but there’s no way to prove conclusively either way. The photo is from 2001, was obviously taken with a film camera (not digital), and has probably been scanned, copied, resampled, tweaked, cropped, color-adjusted, and who knows what else many times in those 14 years. The image is so degraded it’s pointless to try to prove anything from it by zooming in and “analyzing” the pixels.
The only real question is whether Chuck C. Johnson fell for a scam, or whether he’s pushing yet another lie knowingly, on purpose.
Famous ESPN sportscaster Stuart Scott passed away today, after a battle with cancer. He’ll be greatly missed.
And this is how the National Review remembers Scott:
As I write this an hour later, the tweet has still not been deleted.
Approximately four hours later, the tweet is now gone with no explanation or apology.
Sometimes I really love right wing journalism. Where else can you find such amusing self-beclownment on a regular basis, written by people with marginal command of the English language and no fact-checking skills at all? It’s some of the funniest stuff on the web (if you ignore the sheer hatefulness of so much of it).
Today’s example of this fine tradition of idiocy comes through TruthRevolt, Ben Shapiro’s lowest common denominator propaganda site for dolts, where they’re hilariously trying to defend Sarah Palin by attacking (who else?) Ellen Degeneres: When Ellen DeGeneres’s Kid Stood on a Dog, There Was No Liberal Outrage | Truth Revolt.
When Sarah Palin posted a New Year’s photo of her 6-year-old son Trig standing on the family dog to reach the sink with the offering of an inspirational message of turning an obstacle into a stepping stone, social media erupted in vile attacks against Palin for allowing such an “atrocity” to take place.
However, when Ellen Degeneres posted the same photo of her daughter standing on their family’s dog to reach the sink back in July of 2014, no one cared:
TPNN [Tea Party News Network] points out that there were a few comments to Ellen’s talk show Facebook page that expressed disappointment and warned that the dog could become uncomfortable and possibly bite, but no one attacked the entertainer personally, and no one stooped to the level of pedophilia as they did in the instance above with Palin.
And the punch line to this inadvertent joke is … wait for it … Ellen Degeneres has no daughter! Boom! They just assumed the photo she posted at Facebook was of her own daughter. Fact-checking? What is that?
If you click the link to the “Tea Party News Network” (bwa haha!) you’ll see that they’re the numbskulls who originated this bone-headed error. TruthRevolt’s Trey Sanchez just parroted it like a good little wingnut propaganda spreader.
Look out, the truth is revolting! Clicking the link above now leads to this:
Our stalker pal Chuck C. Johnson is now targeting the family of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio for his special kind of right wing hate attack, and using Twitter to ask his knuckle-dragging followers to help and give him money:
And today at his awful website, we find what might be the most ludicrous use ever of “BREAKING” in a wingnut headline: BREAKING: DeBlasio’s Father Backed Appeasing Hitler in 1938 #NYPD - GotNews.
Yes, that’s right, dear readers; the Ginger Avenger is labeling a 76-year old story as super-duper EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS!
Bill DeBlasio’s father, Warren Wilhelm, supported the appeasement of Adolph Hitler in an October 26, 1938 debate, Gotnews has learned.
DeBlasio’s father, then a Labor member of the Yale Political Union, gave a stirring speech in favor of appeasing Hitler.
Appeasing Hitler was the “least terrible” of five alternatives, Wilhelm concluded as reported in an article in The Yale Daily News.
The New York Times didn’t reveal DeBlasio’s father’s appeasement views ahead of the 2013 mayoral election.
Seriously? What kind of swivel-eyed loon thinks the New York Times should have written about this completely irrelevant detail from 76 years ago?
The opinion expressed by de Blasio’s father in 1938 was not unusual at all, and nobody saw it as “appeasing Hitler” at the time. This post by Chuck is absolute garbage. Really nasty, smelly garbage intended to harm people — and I’m not just talking about Mayor de Blasio and his family. Chuck is doing his best to spread racial hatred in the wake of the Brooklyn shootings.
And it gets even more ridiculous: Johnson is now putting his “Got News” watermark on historical photos as if he owns them!
The second photo is actually owned by the Associated Press, by the way.
Chuck C. Johnson is a real piece of work, and he’s being pimped and promoted now by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Fox News. He’s so deranged and unprofessional, he’ll probably eventually get himself in real hot water — but he’s going to continue deliberately hurting innocent people on the way.
LGF contributor Gus points out that the man Johnson is viciously smearing as an “appeaser of Hitler” is a decorated war hero who lost a leg in combat during World War II.
Father -> “…was sent to the Pacific, where he hopped between islands on short combat missions and earned a Bronze Star.” @Green_Footballs
On news of the shooting of two police officers in Brooklyn, right wing smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson immediately launched a full-on hate campaign, culminating in this frenzied piece of sheer bigotry (another “BREAKING EXCLUSIVE,” of course — they all are): BREAKING, EXCLUSIVE: NYPD Cop Killer Worked for Alleged Muslim Terror Front Group - GotNews.
Johnson is trying to take the act of a sociopathic career criminal and turn it into an opportunity to incite hatred against Muslims, and he’s not above using flat-out lies to do it. He quotes his usual far right “source” for these police-related stories:
“His killing of his ex-girlfriend is entirely consistent with an honor killing,” says John Cardillo, a former NYPD police officer who investigated terror cells in New York.
This was posted last night, and I saw several people on Twitter point out to Chuck that it’s simply wrong, but… no correction, of course.
Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s ex-girlfriend was:
- Not killed; she was seriously wounded but is expected to recover.
- Absolutely not the victim of an "honor killing."
In fact, Brinsley went to her apartment intending to kill himself, but she talked him out of it — and he repaid her kindness by shooting her.
This was no “honor killing,” not even an attempted “honor killing” — and it had nothing to do with Brinsley’s Muslim faith. It was a spree killing, ending in a suicide.
A horrible crime, made worse by grotesque bottom feeders like Chuck C. Johnson who use it to spread hatred and divisiveness.
And now this despicable low-life is smearing the killer’s mother: BREAKING: NYPD Cop Killer’s Jamaican Mom Praises Polygamy, Hates Capitalism - GotNews.
At the Washington Post, Erik Wemple reports that Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner is seeking the aid of Columbia Journalism School to do an independent audit of their botched story about rape at the University of Virginia: Rolling Stone Farms Out Review of U-Va. Rape Story to Columbia Journalism School.
Rolling Stone magazine has decided to enlist the Columbia Journalism School to audit its handling of a discredited Nov. 19 story about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia, according to a just-released statement from Editor and Publisher Jann S. Wenner, which reads as follows:
In RS 1223, Sabrina Rubin Erdely wrote about a brutal gang rape of a young woman named Jackie at a party in a University of Virginia frat house [“A Rape on Campus”]. Upon its publication, the article generated worldwide attention and praise for shining a light on the way the University of Virginia and many other colleges and universities across the nation have tried to sweep the issue of sexual assault on campus under the rug. Then, two weeks later, The Washington Post and other news outlets began to question Jackie’s account of the evening and the accuracy of Erdely’s reporting. Immediately, we posted a note on our website, disclosing the concerns. We have asked the Columbia Journalism School to conduct an independent review - headed by Dean Steve Coll and Dean of Academic Affairs Sheila Coronel - of the editorial process that led to the publication of this story. As soon as they are finished, we will publish their report.
I noticed our stalker pal Chuck C. Johnson tweeting about this:
OK. I don’t get it. Why is this supposed to be “pathetic?” It sounds like an excellent idea to have an independent review, and who better to do it than a renowned journalism academy? A teaching experience for all involved, if you will.
Seriously, why is this supposed to be a bad thing? It’s usually not difficult to see what wingnuts are getting at when they rant about something, but I’m drawing a blank on this one.
All week long, right wing smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson has been ranting on Twitter about his goofy theory that North Korea had nothing to do with the Sony hack, claiming to have proof from “Sony insiders,” and demanding apologies from anyone who dared to suggest otherwise. A small sample of his dozens of boasting tweets:
So when is everyone who blamed #NorthKorea going to apologize for running with that claim?
The more I learn from Sony insiders about Sony's security system the more obvious it becomes that North Korea wasn't behind Sony hack.
Et cetera, et cetera.
If you’ve been following the sad saga of the Ginger Avenger and his long-running habit of shooting himself in the foot, you probably already know where this is headed.
Yes, that’s right — the FBI announced today that they have conclusively linked North Korea to the Sony cyber-attack.
Some of the evidence they cite in their statement:
Technical analysis of the data deletion malware used in this attack revealed links to other malware that the FBI knows North Korean actors previously developed. For example, there were similarities in specific lines of code, encryption algorithms, data deletion methods, and compromised networks.
The FBI also observed significant overlap between the infrastructure used in this attack and other malicious cyber activity the U.S. Government has previously linked directly to North Korea. For example, the FBI discovered that several Internet protocol (IP) addresses associated with known North Korean infrastructure communicated with IP addresses that were hardcoded into the data deletion malware used in this attack.
Separately, the tools used in the SPE attack have similarities to a cyber attack in March of last year against South Korean banks and media outlets, which was carried out by North Korea.
Hmmm. Who do we believe? The FBI’s investigators, or Chuck C. Johnson’s “anonymous sources?” It’s a real quandary.
We notice, however, that for every single recent breaking story, Chuck has claimed to have anonymous sources right in the middle of it. A cynical person might begin to suspect he’s just inventing these “sources” to inject himself into the news.
