Why we will never link to LittleGreenFootballs


Elimination is the only solution; I know that sounds bad, but that's the way it is. Forced sterilization, and full occupation to keep them under control until the problem solves itself in about 50 years.


At one time, I had this group in the blogroll. A darling of the right, including so-called moderates like Glenn Reynolds, this site's readership is disturbing, to put it mildly.

Their comments are filled with references to Muslims and Arabs as "surplus populations", in the term of Adams & Balfour. Genocide, forced sterilization, and other "Final Solution"-type rhetoric is thrown around there pretty often. I read the site before I read the criticism, but it only confirmed my belief that there is something very odd and discomforting about the site's general readership.

I'm a pretty forgiving guy - I don't think Larry Summers should be hung up by the left anymore than Ward Churchill should be hung up by the right for their comments. I like "Crossfire"-style discourse, and I promote and participate in hyperbole as a rhetorical device.

I abhore censorship of any kind, and obviously, this group has right to speak their minds, but I challenge you to take this quiz:
LittleGreenFootballs or Late German Fascists? (the LGF quiz), identifying quotes from either the LGF comments section or Nazi leadership.

It is groups like this that give me cause for concern. In the anonymity of the Internet, these people talk a good game and may be nothing more than talk, but the language and themes also seem to invite the idea of mass movements - movements that seize newspapers (the "MSM" they so often deride), jail reporters, detain academic intellectuals and opposing community leaders, and quash dissent through intimidation and threats.

The line between champion of the downtrodden and vigilante exterminator is very thin.

Right on, man. Smart move! I consider LGF to be the number one hate site on the internet.

What a maroon you are!! Check out the immediate condemnations of that poster "jan" by the others. You'll find lefties, Europeans, libertarians, Muslims, right wingers, etc. all posting at LGF. Charles can't watch up to and more than 5000 comments per day. He gives a disclaimer as well.

LGF is a good site for discussion, if you think your skin is tough enough.

Discussion at LGF? Don't be ridiculous. You can't even register, and most "dissident" participants are blocked instantly.

Damn Perry (Mason), you’ve got old Burger up against the wall now. Matlock couldn’t beat those closing arguments. That’s the same trick Sean Hannity employs to show up Leftists. Only he tries to use about seven or eight quotes that are actually attributable to some one of some importance. Like let’s say a senator or a Presidential candidate. But using that one line is good. Less is more sometimes. And finding that needle in the haystack at 3:00 am (ish) in the morning. Now that sure is a fine example of crack reporting. Good thing you checked up on it and determined it was not a hoax or planted the way you did; before you besmirched that fascist bastard’s good name. Keep up the good work. Love “Karl” Billy Bob Lewis.
