Fauxblography: Johnson Expunges His Own Dictionary from LGF

The LGF Dictionary: Gone but Never Forgotten

Charles Foster Johnson's compulsive revisionism of his Little Green Footballs site continues apace as he expunges his own dictionary. Jay Tea at Wizbang foresaw this, or perhaps caused this, a few weeks ago with: The Fall Of The Lizardoid King (Wizbang)

Oh, and [Johnson would] go through his site's dictionary and clean up some of the hate-filled language there -- "Nazimedia," "Islamofascist," "ZioNazi," "Oil Ticks," "Religion Of Pieces," "St. Pancake," "Aloha Snackbar," "Fwench," "IslamoNazi," "Jordyptian," "Frogistan," "Holy Shiite," "Sudden Jihad Syndrome," "Paleostinian," and a host of others.

I'd HATE to see you judged by the words you posted yourself on your own site, Charles...

As it has turned out, Johnson waited a bit so that perhaps nobody would notice and then dumped "The Johnson's Anti-Jihad Dictionary: The Lizard Blinks (Wizbang)
A couple of weeks ago, I had a bit of my say about the devolution of Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs. In the course of that article, I cited a few quotes from the LGF Dictionary which seemed decidedly at odds with the current direction of the site.

Well, Charles apparently agreed with me, because the vaunted LGF Dictionary is no more.

It still lives on in Google's cache, for now and I was foresighted enough (for once) to save a LGF Dictionary.pdf copy on my laptop.

How sad, because the dictionary had a lot of good work by Johnson, or more likely one of his minions.

Like Jay Tea I believe that such a fabulous bit of arcane blogorea should not perish from the sphere. Hence, I'm uploading a copy of Jay Teas LGF Dictionary HERE.


Grab you own copy and upload it to your site. We wouldn't want such a historic web document to ever go missing. That would be like the disappearing people next to Joe Stalin in the original fauxtography. It would be, dare I say it, "fauxblography".

UPDATE: The original is archived at Zombietime here --> LGF Dictionary What's interesting about this one is that it actually credits all of the original compilers. These credits were cut from the not defunct dictionary at LGF because most of the original contributors had been banned at that site.

Somebody should remind Chuckles the Clown of Winston Smith, the protagonist of 1984 who worked in the Ministry of Truth, constantly revising newspaper articles to reflect the ever-changing party line.
