Conservative sh*tbags thoroughly rip victim Lara Logan

Frankly, I’m having a hard time typing. My hands are practically shaking, I’m so pissed at the bacterial 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:

Democracy and Freedom, courtesy only White Christian America (part one)

The Egyptian Revolution. Hallelujah. Wow. What a thing of beauty, an awesome spectacle.

And what a great reminder of our own shocking, but humble, beginnings. I am struck again by the genius of our Founding Fathers.

Perhaps never before was, never again will be, a statement as brilliant as the Declaration of Independence issued by the rebels while they were rebelling. These were no bargain basements insurgents, these were the best a whole new nation had to offer.

These may have been some of the best a whole new world had to offer. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson remain iconic inspirations to peoples across the globe. There’s a good reason for that: their ideas have stood the test of time.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

They might have been (if you ask me) as famous for these words just as easily, from the paragraph before:

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them . .”.

They evoke similar themes. Man is free, thus no one may justifiably trap him in a ‘lesser station.’ His Freedom is a natural thing, like Earth’s gravity. This is always true, it always will be.

Good stuff! Quintessentially American. Taught to all of us from the first years at school, practically wallpapered on our brains. So tell me: why are Conservatives so uncomfortable with it?

The people of Egypt are people, right? Each is endowed with natural rights, no question? So what foreign philosophy have the wingnuts newly embraced here? Why have they forsaken the lucid legacy of the Founding Fathers? Glenn Beck:

This is the coming insurrection. It is. And it is imperative that you get up to speed. Do your own homework. This is not about Egypt. This is about your hometown and your lifestyle. It is important to see what is really going on and what this leads to.

You can just imagine Britons saying the same of us in 1776. John McCain:

This virus is spreading throughout the Middle East. The president of Yemen, as you know, just made the announcement that he wasn’t running again.

This, I would argue, is probably the most dangerous period of history in — of our entire involvement in the Middle East, at least in modern times.

Freedom, the dangerous virus. The poor martinet, on the other hand, dictator of 30 years, he’s a good person, he’s practically American himself. Just ask Dick Cheney:

So he’s been a good man. He’s been a good friend and ally to the United States, and we need to remember that.

Hosni Mubarak: gone after running away with billions of Egyptians dollars, oppressing his people for decades and torturing anybody he didn’t like. So he’s a good man, in Cheney’s eye. Pastor John Hagee:

. . an American ally and closet friend to Israel . . Israel will soon be surrounded by enemies screaming for their blood. Will America support them? Our president certainly has not been supportive of Israel to this point in his administration; why would he change now?

Freedom and human rights mean death to Israel. I wonder if the opposite is really what Israel wants for the world. Sarah Palin ain’t so comfortable with any of this, either:

. . surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak and I’m not real enthused about what it is that that’s being done on a national level and from DC in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt. And in these areas that are so volatile right now because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information yet.

Underpinnings of freedom, anybody? Any of our guiding principles? Constitution, Declaration of Independence, yadda-yadda? Every one of these Patriots has been rendered a nervous babe lost in the woods. Sarah herself, with her mouth in gear and brain in neutral, admits she’d know better what to do if she only she could figure out “what it is that America stands for.” All, clueless or deranged with respect to understanding how to react to the events unfolding in the Middle East.

They weren’t always this way. George W. Bush, 2003, on the approach of democracy:

. . the power of freedom to transform that vital region, by bringing hope and progress into the lives of millions . .

Now that’s what I expect. Very odd — don’t you think? How can they be on both sides of the same issue?

From his studio in Philadelphia, syndicated radio talk-show host Glenn Beck urges Americans to support President Bush and what he characterizes as Mr. Bush’s plan for seeding freedom in the Middle East with the invasion of U.S. troops.

OHHHHH. Now I get it. If WE bring them democracy, it’s terrific. If they get it for themselves, it stinks (and Israel will die). Version 1: 100,000 dead, continuing violence and strife, no government yet installed. Version 2: 300 dead, elation in the streets, oppressive regimes across the Middle East shaking in their boots.

But Conservatives across America aren’t overjoyed, to say the least.
