This is where the fun starts. MassGolfGuy comes in when the residents of LGF start defending Van Jones.

Jones is getting defended, I had to come in and see for myself...???
Now, I'm no fan of Van Jones, but I would (at least) be interested to hear what the liberals at LGF have to say to defend him. But as soon as I read that comment, my flounce radar went on high alert. Here's one thing they had to say about him (before/after MassGolfGuy's comment):

re: #336 iceweasel
Lies were spread about Van Jones being a truther, and he resigned because he didn't need the bullshit and didn't want to get in Obama's way.
And no amount of spin is going to change that.
Jones is a quitter and I'll never trust him again!
This post makes we wonder why iceweasel or albusteve would trust Van Jones in the first place, but I digress. The next quote comes from Killgore Trout, who is not as clueless as one may have suspected.

Here come the flouncers!
For once, he is right. Now, for a longer sequence of comments:

Flounce level is on red.

Ok, you came, you saw, now git...

re: #328 Spare O'Lake
Van Jones was thrown under the bus by his boss the President.If he was innocent of the right wing smears then his boss should have come out publicly to defend him, but of course he did not.And no amount of spin is going to change that fact.
[So, Charles has now taken up residency in the West Wing. He knows all the details. He doesn't state it as his opinion, he says "that's simply not true". And how, pray tell, does Charles know these details?]
No, that's simply not true. Van Jones resigned, and issued a statement saying that he was removing himself from the job.
You can believe Obama threw him under the bus if you like, but this differs considerably from other cases where the Obama administration publicly said they asked people to leave.
Now, SixDegrees comes into the picture and makes a good point. How naive of him/her.

re: #320 iceweasel
Yeah, the wingnut wardance over Jennings the last few days-- Hannity was pushing it. Others too. Claiming that he concealed or hid a male underage student's sexual relationship with an adult man. There's been a number of smears and lies circulating about Jennings. Zombie has obviously sussed out that this is the new area ripe for a smearjob and is whoring for wingnut traffic.
Actually, that Jennings was aware of an underage student's affair with an adult isn't so much a claim as a fact; Jennings himself has openly admitted it on several occasions. And it's disturbing in the extreme. Teachers are supposed to report such knowledge, and Jennings kept it to himself.
The slime being peddled about dubious tapes distracts from this issue, which actually has substance.
And then we have the first flounce. Sorry, I didn't get the actual post. These things happen fast.

Sharmuta then chimes in with a thoughtful comment.

re: #332 MassGolfGuy
heard him on tape that Schools are indoctrinating children to be heterosexual
I saw him on tape playing poker with Elvis and an alien.
And now for the actual banning.

re: #349 MassGolfGuy
I guess being opposed to child molesters is now reason for banning at LGF. Unless the child molester is a Catholic Priest. Oh well.
So MassGolfGuy is gone. Who's next? Well, this was kind of unexpected:

Off subject and I haven't posted in some time. But I find it ironic at the time of McCain's decision to choose Palin as his running mate which I vehemently opposed I took a beat down on this site. Now I can only laugh at the 20-20 vision both charles and the rest of the lizards who attacked my valid concerns are showing. Amazing. The saddest part is that in your attempts to keep your eye on the real problems of islamo-facism, and the failures of the Obama administration seem to have been over taken by an obsession with the same extreme right that I argued Palin was a part of. The legitimacy of Charles work has been tainted in my view. That said, I still find this one of the few places on the web or elsewhere that mirror my convictions as a member of the human race. I welcome all comments, yet I was labeled a "fool" for my conviction prior to the election by fellow lizards. I suppose I will be banned soon for my comments. Or perhaps hindsight will prove 20-20 and I'll find an apology or two waiting. I don't have my hopes up. Charles where is the outrage with the Obama administration and their appeasement of Iran and the continuing sell out of Israel? Lost your focus perhaps? Just a little?

re: #530 steveoh
Wow, that's two creeps posting 30 seconds apart. Amazing.
Well, he predicted he would be banned and his prediction came true. No surprise there.
Next, we have the most clueless post I have ever seen. And it didn't come from Sharmuta.

Seriously, though. When I used to drink in bars, there were some places that changed (filled up with hipsters and frat boys) and I'd just go elsewhere. Never felt the need to hassle the management or pick fights with the other patrons.
LGF, though, hasn't changed; I don't see any evidence that it's any different than previously, and don't see what folk are getting all worked up about.
This whole wig-out by the right reminds me of the old purges of Stalin et al, but without the organizational skills he brought to the table. It's freelance and amateurish.
LGF hasn't changed? You don't see any evidence? You are right about the purges, but not the way you think. Guanxi88, your observational skills are so sadly lacking you probably wouldn't notice if you stopped breathing.
Now, for a comment on earth2moonbat's flounce. This is priceless:
talon_262 Tue, Oct 6, 2009 5:54:39pm replyquote
re: #541 Charles
You must have missed it -- Earth2moonbat staged a really nasty multi-comment flounce.
Damnit, I've said it before and I'll say it again...WTF is wrong with seemingly nice and rational people that they go and backstab their "friends", spit vitriol, and basically dare Charles to get them the stick?
The short answer, I suppose, is that the flouncers and banees never really were our "friends". They only feigned to tolerate being among us so long as they thought we thought as they do and, when it became clear that most of us wouldn't join them on the "right-wing" krazee train after Obama took office, they pitched fits like petulant, spoiled little brats and screamed how much they hated Daddy Charles.
Sure, not all of the long-timers who have left, forcibly or otherwise, have made screeching farewell screeds, but what is clear is that it's not so much that Charles and LGF have changed, but rather that (most of) the departed Lizards either dropped the mask of their true nature or decided to discard logic, reason, and common sense for bigotry, willful ignorance, and hate.
OK, that explains why we are approaching the grim milestone of 2000 banned. Not all of the long-timers have left? Who's left? Besides Sharmuta. Every week I hear about someone else being banned, usually due to poor punctuation or bad hygiene or some other lame excuse.
And now for one last comment from LGF's resident rocket scientists:

re: #571 Cato the Elder
Ex-LGFers over there kissing Zombie's ass on the Jennings blackmail thread right now, the way they used to do here:
Ringo the Gringo
F**k 'em...they took leave of their sanity and integrity and threw in with the stalkers and haters.
/it's a damn shame...
Damn! They didn't include me. I feel jilted.
