A Wise Decision

I disassociated myself from political blogger Charles Johnson and his littlegreenfootballs.com site a little while back, because I began to see blatant bigotry and a leftist imbalance in what I believed was formerly a fair site.  The final straw was how he and the commenters that he approved of portrayed the 9-12 Tea Party Protesters in Washington D.C.

So, out of a morbid curiosity, I decided to take a quick look at how he covered last week’s G-20 protests in my hometown of Pittsburgh.  As I’m sure you know, the protests rapidly became violent on Thursday and the violence continued late into the night. In the aftermath, many business owners were cleaning up damage to their shops as a second non-violent march called the Peoples’ March paraded through the city.  The Peoples’ March, which was financially supported by a litany of socialist and communist groups, allowed the violent protesters (from Thursday) to march with them after they promised not to be violent for the duration of the march.

So what did Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, who got all frothy over the 9-12 D.C. Tea Party, have to say about the openly violent G-20 Protests?

Nothing.  Absolutely nothing. Not a single thread was devoted to the issue.

I wish I could say I’m surprised.

I’m just glad I got out of that nut house when I did.

  1. 9/11 made foxhole buddies out of a lot of bloggers. Now, eight years on, that alliance is cracking up, very noisily and publicly. “The Commissar” of The Political Diktat, Juan Cole of Balloon Juice, all bailed earlier.

  2. Excellent post! The drive towards COP 15 does not benefit from the association between climate change activism and bloody riots. Green has come of age, the movement must dissociate itself from its adolescent tendencies or risk alienating the vast majority.

    In mood, G-20 protests are not all that different from conservative “tea-parties.” Although the anarchists and the conservatives may not agree on economic policy, they are very much alike when it comes to their love of protest and support for revolution.

  3. Richard,

    To tell you the truth, I’m somewhat mystified about why leftists protest against the G-20. It’s a huge gathering of governments that are trying to build a collectivist world financial system. Isn’t that what the left wants? A giant government entity that distributes wealth around to whomever they deem needy?

    It would make more sense if the Tea Partiers showed up to protest in favor of free markets. But, I doubt the Tea Partiers are all that interested in the cause of capitalism as an ideology. They’re more practical than ideological. They just want lower taxes and smaller government.

    Awesome blog!

    I thought about starting my own blog too but I’m just too lazy so, I guess I’ll just have to keep checking yours out.
