I’m just now getting back to this story which has more or less stopped in its tracks when it comes to CBS and the rest of the state-controlled news media.
The story of network TV reporter Lara Logan and others being assaulted and intimidated in Tahrir Square were obvious under reported so as not to upset the Obama administration's narrative about the “freedom-loving” ragheads in that wonderland called Egypt.
There is a major truth in this nonetheless--People’s Exhibit 263..... liberals will get you killed:
(NY Post) — “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, “Jew! Jew!” as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo’s main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.
Despite her experience in the field, including Iraq and Afghanistan, Logan (right) naively expected to be warmly welcomed by the democracy-bent “youths” fronting for the military junta that has suspended the Egyptian constitution, dissolved parliament and overthrown the government of Hosni Mubarak… without firing a shot.
She also made a grievous tactical mistake by dressing as if she was in America as she waded into the howling sub-humans in just one more Third-World shithole. Her riot ensemble included a strand of pearls (above).
She went further several years ago and dyed her hair a severe Goth-black for just to lower her public profile.
Though confronted during the riot, she was not assaulted.
I have the greatest sympathy for Miss Logan.
When this country stopped executing men convicted of rape, two signals were sent; women, you're on your own, and rapists… no more than 10 years, three with good behavior… IF you’re convicted.
But if you’re a “white” female raped in a Muslim country, it’s 80-20 that the sub-human won’t questioned, let alone prosecuted, and it’s at least 50-50 that YOU’LL be charged under Sharia law with a crime.
That’s the background.
The second is as follows:
According to some internet claims Logan was intentionally separated from her “security” (sic) and camera crew, and surrounded by a large group of animals who stripped her naked while screaming “Jew! Jew! Mubarak’s whore!”.
Brutal details are recounted, but I’ve not seen the alleged cellcam video, however the claims is persistent.
News media reports were that she was eventually “saved” by the Egyptian police and Egyptian “women”.
Medically treated for her injuries and returned to the U.S., Logan is with her children and “vowing to go back to work within weeks.”
One source said she has an "incredibly tough constitution" -- and she is candidly discussing what happened to her. As one friend said, "She is going to be OK."
Friends tell us Logan -- a seasoned, tough and respected foreign correspondent -- is "unbelievably strong."
None of these “friends” have the right or qualifications to be assessing this poor woman.
Such comments are garbage, and make light of what she has suffered and endured.
“She is going to be OK.” ???
Since 9/11 my default position on anything involving Muslims and Islamist nations is… “the ragheads did it”; then I wait for additional information.
So far I’m batting 1.0000.
The left on the other hand, insists that unless they have iron-clad “proof” from a left-wing source that Logan was indeed gang-raped, then they are “innocent until proven guilty.”
Yeah that’s fine in a breaking and entering case on Keokuk Iowa, but don’t confuse that with sexual assault in Cairo.
The news coverage makes it clear that liberals actually believe (being anti-American themselves, not to mention fifth-columnists and traitors) their politics gives them a pass in the Muslim world.
This would be fine with me if they were the only victims; but that’s not the case. Though most of us are not left-wing, idiot sell outs, like the en mass democrat party, the president and all the rest of his administration, we all suffer from:
- wars that we refuse to fight to win,
- a suicidal liberal belief that you can talk to psychotic mass-murders
- constantly confusing right and left with wrong and right
- the “chickification” of American society
- the ruinous impact of the secular left which hates your faith, your patriotism, even your family and insists it is not a reprehensible crime to cut a baby apart in the mother’s womb because children are a “punishment.”
If the story that Logan was assaulted with unbelievable viciousness is only half true, she should be on medical leave for the one-two months and in intense reality-based therapy for her trauma. I base this on my 20+ years dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder as a volunteer with the VA and other organizations, and a lengthy private practice career.
If she is allowed to return to work without the appropriate treatment, her employer will be responsible; this woman is not psychologically capably of making any decisions beyond what time to get up and what to eat.
My experience tells me that she needed and should have been debriefed by an experienced professional once medically cleared. There is much research to indicated that a thorough critical incident debriefing conducted before the victim sleeps, reduces the chance of, and may even prevent a full-blown case of posttraumatic stress disorder.
The last thing she needed was:
I believe that state-run news media—so cemented in a Utopian world in which we talked out enemies out of removing our heads—were shocked, shocked that a group of of Muslim men became somewhat unruly. And these news organizations have chosen to ignore for the most part the persistent reports of a vicious gang rape by Islamists.
Logan is a blonde American (and is not a Jew) and according to these wastes of skin, she got what she deserved as dictated by the Koran, the Muslim funny book.
During the coup last week, you’ll recall the jahadis tended to attack, threaten and bully defenseless women… Logan, Christiane Amanpour, and Anderson Cooper, who fled the country immediately after his jihadi ass-kicking.
Thank God Shep Smith was safe at home.
It doesn’t matter who the sub-humans are; pro-revolution, students, drop-outs, anti-revolution… my cash is on the Muslim Bros which all liberals believe are only interested bystanders.
The response from the left, from the safety of a free country protected by two oceans a the best military in the world:
Film critic Roger Ebert summed the left up best when he tweeted: "The attack on Lara Logan brings Middle East attitudes toward women into sad focus."
- Cooper offered his “thoughts and prayers” on Twitter, saying he was "sickened and saddened by the attack on Lara Logan."
- And the first ex-president proven to be a fifth-columnist had earlier chimed in with: “I think the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of in the upcoming (Egyptian) political situation and the evolution I see as most likely,” Carter said. “They will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and true democracy.”
Much is true in this horror story…. CBS will use and abuse Logan as a brave example of the intrepid reporter, but will never admit its unconscionable failure to provide adequate security or (as I prefer) admitting that she shouldn’t have been allowed to be there in the first palace.
But the number one truth is: liberals will get you killed.
