Frankly, I’m having a hard time typing. My hands are practically shaking, I’m so pissed at the likes of Jim Hoft, Debbie Schlussel and their exultant readers.
Who the hell could be furious with or mocking of reporter Lara Logan, someone who has suffered this way?
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.
Here’s Debbie Schlussel:
Alhamdillullah [Praise allah], Islam Fan Lara Logan Gets a Taste of Islam
. . I just love it when the people of the profession of “the public’s right to know” suddenly want “privacy.” Tell it to your next interview subject, Lara. Of course CBS has no further comment. Wouldn’t wanna impugn the “peacefulness” of “Religion of Peace” animals, would we? Now, if they were Christians or Jews, well, then there would be comments galore.
So sad, too bad, Lara. No one told her to go there. She knew the risks. And she should have known what Islam is all about. Now she knows. Or so we’d hope. But in the case of the media vis-a-vis Islam, that’s a hope that’s generally unanswered.
This never happened to her or any other mainstream media reporter when Mubarak was allowed to treat his country of savages in the only way they can be controlled.
Now that’s all gone. How fitting that Lara Logan was “liberated” by Muslims in Liberation Square while she was gushing over the other part of the “liberation.”
How do I comment on something so devoid of the hallmarks of humanity: intelligence and compassion? Debbie Schlussel acts like some ugly fraction of a human.
“Praise Allah” for Lara’s sexual assault? “How fitting” she ended up in the hospital?
And, for the record, where is Lara Logan’s blog? The one where she identified herself as a leftist? Or her Twitter feed, where she’s found “gushing over” the Disneyland Muslims of Tahrir Square? Neither exists. None of the things they identify as Lara Logan is true. They’ve completely lost their minds, and they couldn’t be happier. Jim Hoft:
Lara Logan is lucky she’s alive.
Her liberal belief system almost got her killed on Friday. This talented reporter will never be the same.
Jim Hoft is notoriously stupid, so there’s no way he actually knows any of the things he’s alleging here. He’s just in his glory, period. Nothing more than that. He’s just drunk on Logan’s bruising and blood.
Why did this attractive blonde female reporter wander into Tahrir Square last Friday? Why would she think this was a good idea? Did she not see the violence in the square the last three weeks? Did she not see the rock throwing? Did she miss the camels?
Jim refuses to treat Lara with the respect she’s earned. She’s reported from war-torn hellholes like Iraq and Afghanistan for years and years, so she’s well aware of what dangers exist in the environment. The revolution in Egypt is the biggest story of the year, and Logan is particularly well-suited to report upon it. I can’t blame her for being there, even after others got assaulted while covering the events.
Jim, though, like other right-winger bloggers, would prefer to piss on her professionalism and good reputation. Ace of Spades:
Here’s Logan shooting her dirty, dirty whore-mouth off on The Daily Show.
Jammie Wearing Fool:
Howard Kurtz gushed over Logan being a rapid riser a couple of years ago. Apparently she knows how to get a rise out of others.
Here’s Jim joining in the fun . .

You can imagine Hoft’s readers are at least as rotten a kennel of shit-bottomed curs, as he is. You imagine correctly:
