(Reason #)8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

He “parted” with the right because he was faking it to get hits on his blog. Now, he sees the real money is with Soros, so he slithers back home.

Good riddance, Charles, you spineless coward.

Weird. I went to the site expecting to see a guy who was maybe now calling himself a moderate or liberatarian, but he seems to have gone completely over to the left.

LGF has been off my radar for a very long time. We keep feeding the troll by giving him hits.

It’s not the end of the world to post articles about the loon, but I’m not visiting his site to drive up hit traffic.

Not long ago, LGF was a fairly conservative blog. Charles Johnson must be trying to pull an Arianna Huffington or an Ed Schultz.

From visiting the site it sounds like the reason they parted ways with “the right” is because they realized they were of the left.

According to wikipedia (for what that's worth), he was a lefty before 9/11. I guess the September 10 mentality caught back up to him. Whomever compared him to Andrew Sullivan probably nailed it.

Eyes rolling while wondering how they consider the Daily Kos and Huffington Post their holy grail for pure peace and love speech. An obvious oversight perhaps? (sarcasm)

There isn't many places one can express their despair of America being sold out
and not being able to save it.

This site is not about hate speech. It's cries of despair and FREE speech.

It's the best site on the net for letting loose but with lots of restraint from Jim
if we get unruly.

FR is about truths, vanities, jokes and many things. Stories you won't see or read with the what I now call the Enquirer types and the so-called media that refuse to be anything but the left's water carriers. If the comments offend idiots like LGF, then don't read them.

I bookmarked LGF right after 9/11 when they were producing some excellent commentary about the terrorist attacks.

For a while, I’d check in there about once a week, but in time I stopped in less and less. In time, I rarely visited. Some time this year I began to see tidbits about Charles going off the deep end, so I took a look and couldn’t believe it was the same place.

My first tip-off should have been the name of the site. Only a stoned liberal would choose such a name for their website.

yeah LGF went off the deep end. Conservatism today took it off its list of blogs. Site abandoned conservative prinicpals as well.

I read LGF last year when I was sent links because it was posting various stuff in the obama website.

So he has suddenly adopted all of those positions? Each one is 180 degrees out of phase with what used to appear on that site.

“Climate Change denialism [sic]” - This has to be a joke.

The misspelling, bad grammar, and total lack of reasoning (i.e. attempting to support each point with an ad hominem attack) would indicate that is not the same writer.

LGF ceased being a reputable blog site a long time ago- they are made up of nothing but the same old tired out irrelevent whiners that infest most liberal blogs like Darwin Central or Huffington Post-

Why he ‘left the right’? When was he EVER part of the right? Just like the climategate scandal- He’s tryign to dazzle everyone with BS hoping they won’t notice that he’s been far left all this time- Nice try at a cover-up- but liek the climategate scandal, LGF’s reputation was sullied long before the ‘confessions’ and anyone with an iota of commo nsense saw right htrough their Schtick!

Well, I knew that LGF had gone off the rails, but I never realized how thoroughly.

There was a time when they did a lot of really good stuff.

Was he bought off? Hoping to be bought off? Hoping to get more hits? It beats me. I don’t see how anyone could POSSIBLY change so completely in a fairly short time, and for no good reason.

Is he Jewish? There seem to be a number of Jewish links and references. But I don’t see how someone who seemed to have a lot of common sense could turn into a left-wing, self-hating Jew just like that.

Once again, "hate" is defined as "anyone who has an opinion different from mine". Very pre-kindergarten, very liberal. Only on the left are stomping one's feet and incessant whining considered debating tactics.

A bit of hyperbole by Charles. Sorry to see it and I feel it is rather selective of him. Surely he could qualify his statements by using the English language. For example "some of" and "certain of" and so on. Blanket condemnations show a sort of intolerance.

Meanwhile, I will glance out at my just installed Christmas lights on the modest lawn up here in Northern Ontario. I see the first gentle reminder of a very late coming winter. A sprinkling of the first snow. I compliment my liberal spouse and pet my dog.

I am a Freeper of over ten years, Charles old boy!.

“Raging Hate Speech” = anything that doesn’t end in “and in Obama we trust our soul, for AlGorian mild temperatures we pray, that we shall see the everlasting hand of government grow heavy on our rich neighbor’s back, and the Wise Latina shall release the poor psychopath to perform more acts of Twin Towers urban renewal . . . “

Who told him that he was on the political Right to begin with? Considering the smears that he used against us (notice also that he used Pat Buchanan’s name more than once), he was either a Neocon or a Lefty all along.
