Posted on 08/21/2009 11:56:21 AM PDT by Notoriously Conservative
I've noticed a much more moderate tone at Little Green Footballs lately. Has LGF jumped the shark, and gone left of center? He has admitted that prior to 9/11 he used to be left of center; perhaps he is on his way back. As my good friend Bunk pointed out, CJ's claim to fame was exposing the forged "memo" that Dan Rather was hawking to smear GWB. All CJ did was post the proof that came as a tip from one of his readers.
There is a site out there with a list of those that have been banned from LGF, Kirly. There are over 928 in all. Why so ban happy? And why the recen moderate tones? For example, concerning Glenn Beck:
About 20 major companies have now pulled their advertisements from the Glenn Beck Comedy Hour; the latest to bail out is Farmers Insurance.Concerning Barney Frank:
A Fox News spokesperson told the Daily News yesterday that advertisers referenced have all moved their spots from Beck to other programs on the network so there has been no revenue lost.
... and that means this is a pretty meaningless boycott, since Fox News has no incentive to do anything about Becks extremist statements, even if they wanted to.
Im not Barney Franks biggest fan (that would probably be him), but he handled this idiot with an "Obama = Hitler" sign exactly the right way.Since when has Barney Frank handled anything the right way? Except perhaps a male intern.
Barack Obama ran on a platform of sheer positive messages. Not once did he wish for the other side to fail. You're just wrong to claim that negativity is winning strategy. One of the big reasons why Obama won was because he did NOT go negative -- everFrom Ace of Spades:
What was once a must read blog for news and analysis on my rss feed has recently become a once or twice a day stop and that's only for the car crash quality of it all.
Sadly I can only conclude there's no room for me anymore under LGF's big tent.
Looks to me like LGF has veered from the "right" course, and is now muddled in the gray mists of the middle ground. It's sad to see the ship go down.
What are your views on LGF? Do you agree? Were you banned? Why?

What was once a daily read is now a never read for me. Pulled them from my blogroll a year ago.
CJ? I thought it was a Freeper 1st?
Blame it on the girlfriend/wife.
yep. no doubt.
Ditto for me.
I think I still have an account over there. Haven’t been to the site in ages. It became a politically correct site, coupled with a high level of rudeness and crudeness. It didn’t used to be that way.
I stopped reading them a while back and they are not on my blofroll any longer either.
Little green cojones? Never heard of em.....
CJ was not a conservative. He was “mugged” by 911 and it veered himn “right” for a while. Now he has gone back toward where he had been before 9-11.
That’s my opinion as well.
She must be hot or something. It used to be good but it is worse than Huff Po. The guy is a liberal tyrant.
I think you're right. CJ does not like Christians or conservatives. He was bothered by Islam on 9/11 and decided to run to the conservative side for a while, but we're to icky for him, now that he's gotten over his fright.
I'm proud to have been banned from LGF for being inadequately PC and challenging him.
Used to love that site but it did change for the worse. I never go there now.
I registered there and posted the night I got on. And I think that was it. He has gotten really strange. Kind of like liberals and others like them who have no room for opinions other than their own.
LGF is a gay publication/blog.
lgf, with it’s notorious perpetual “closed enrollment” sign was a sort of coveted forbidden once. Now I can’t be bothered...
It’s a lunatic asylum. Reminds me of Kos. DU is more conservative than that knucklehead’s drek.
