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.
