Delinking Is So Hard To Do

Not really. It had been over a year since I’d even been over or linked to Little Green Footballs. When he started attacking fellow bloggers, for some pretty petty and imagined slights, I just took my business elsewhere. But then he came after Stacy. Robert Stacy McCain – loud of mouth but big of heart. Poor, delusional Charles had slid so far to the left, he was sounding like Keith Olbermann and playing by the (gasp!) liberal playbook. In other words, if you disagreed with him, you were out. Smeared, labeled, libeled, cherry-picked, drug behind the king’s chariot and left for the dogs. So much for (ahem) civilized discourse.

So I delinked him. In the meantime, Hot Air keeps him in their blogroll, but in a more appropriate category.

UPDATE: Perhaps I should explain: LGF was removed from the blogroll here over a year ago. By delinking, I mean I went through my posts and removed the links back. The trend I saw was interesting…as a beginner blogger, I linked there quite a bit. His reports on Islamic cruelty to women were compelling. He had strong opinions on the American ostrich politics regarding the tsunami of Islamic danger heading America’s way. Over the months I linked less; either I felt more comfortable with my own voice or his had changed it’s tune. Then he started attacking other bloggers. You know the rest of the story.

UPDATE II: Linked by The Other McCain, who outlines the root cause of the “Little Green Meltdown.”

    Not wanting people to see these pictures… so hard to do, and so intellectually dishonest.

    Thanks for the cherry-picked pictures. I’m sure you could have found much of the same at any anti-Bush rally, but would you forward THEM around?
