Skip to comments.Profiles in Narcissism: Charles Johnson Blinded by His Own Self-Righteousness
Posted on 04/08/2012 3:39:43 PM PDT by Mozilla
Charles Johnson is doing his Race Detective bit: He accuses me and Dan Riehl of being the first to defend Derbyshire, then he writes a blog post using Riehls name to connect the racist meme to Breitbart.com. And then exhibiting a stunning lack of self-awareness Johnson complains to Pam Spaulding that right-wingers spend so much time & energy trying to smear & discredit me.
Got it? Charles (a) writes a blog post to smear and discredit Dan Riehl and Dans employers, then (b) engages in psychological projection to claim that his enemies are doing to him what he is doing to them.
This kind of blame-shifting rationalization is typical of narcissistic personalities: Nothing is ever their fault. Whenever anything goes wrong, some scapegoat must be blamed for the failure.
You see why paranoia is so closely related to narcissism, in that the damaged ego, being unable to accept responsibility for failure, eventually exaggerates the evils of scapegoated enemies to the point where contact with reality is lost amid persecution fantasies of an all-powerful them conspiring against the grandiose self.
Grandiosity the unrealistic inflation of personal significance is necessary to the delusion: Why would all these powerful forces of evil be conspiring against an obscure nobody? The damaged ego must inflate the imagined power of scapegoated enemies in order to explain how the grandiose self has been thwarted.
During a three-year purge that began in 2008, Charles Johnson banned more than 15,000 commenters from Little Green Footballs, destroying his own traffic, alienating his friends and making himself the laughingstock of the blogosphere. The only person responsible for this was Charles Johnson, yet he continues to seek out racists and other scapegoats to blame for his self-destruction.
Good luck turning your paranoid delusions into a career, Charles.

That’s a pretty powerful analysis and indictment in very few words.
I’m pretty sure everyone of my friends and I have had “the talk” with our sons. Stay out of certain neighborhoods and be respectful when speaking to elders and policepeople while keeping your “attitude” in your pocket.
It's impossible to soar with the Patriotic Eagles when you're just a Paranoid Turkey.
This Charles Johnson
I know! I haven’t thought about LGF’s in years! Looks like he’s still a pompous arse.
Isn’t this the guy with little green balls?
I think Charles is a drama QUEEN.
Hey, nothing to worry about! Most small children are like that. They tell fibs. They have imaginary friends. They want what they want, and they want it right this minute, and if they don't get it, they have tantrums.
The difference between small children and Marxists is the vast majority of small children grow up.
Meanwhile, Johnson has been waiting 35 years for Carly to write another song about him.
Help me along. Charles Johnson was very big in exposing the TANG fraudulent docs. When did he become such a leftist nincompoop? Not that he was a right winger at the time, but he was on that story like stink on a monkey.
