I try to not waste my time commenting on other bloggers. However, Charles Johnson over at Little Green Footballs (no link on purpose), has stepped so far over the line in his accusations against other bloggers, Christians, and anyone who happens to disagree with him, that a word or two is in order.
From what I understand he originally decided to attack Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugged. He then turned his attention to Robert Stacy McCain at The Other McCain, and Dan (i before e) Riehl at Riehl World View, with accusations of raaaaacism. The good Lord knows how many others have been in his cross hairs. And today Mr. Johnson has seen fit to insult home schooling parents and Christians.
I have never seen the appeal of his blog and cannot for the life of me understand why tens of thousands of people visit him every day. His content is poor, writing is lousy, and the guy has absolutely no sense of humor. I'd sure appreciate any insight anyone could lend to that question.
Today's link fest at The Other McCain in which Smitty (I heart Smitty!) does such a magnificent job, is loaded with comments from supporters of Stacy McCain. I would like to add mine.
I have never witnessed Stacy, Dan, Smitty, or Pamela exhibiting even the slightest tendency toward racism. Mr. Johnson, on the other hand, has not missed an opportunity lately to insult just about everything and anybody that could be considered mainstream. It appears that Mr. Johnson is having some sort of a melt down, and for that I offer my condolences. I just wish he would do it in private.
I have been a grateful recipient of the kindness of Stacy, Dan, and Smitty taking the time to answer questions or just support my blog in any way they could. It takes class people to build up rather than tear down others.
I am not fond of this particular aspect of blogging. The carping, attacking, insults, and arguing. Get a life folks. If you don't like what someone has said on their blog just move on. The exception to this is when the attacks become personal, unwarranted, and unfounded like Mr. Johnson has done.
This is not the first melt down I have seen and probably won't be the last. But when our country and our way of life is being threatened by a government that has spiraled out of control, we don't have time for this nonsense.
