...I've been surfing around last night and today on some of the stories about the attack on CBS reporter Lara Logan...some of the horrible comments after the stories and commentary from some bloggers is literally enough to turn one's stomach.

Vileness know no bounds on the internet, that's for sure.

Debbie Schlussel? I haven't heard that name since she used to go on Howard Stern a few years back. They used to tear her a new one, which was pretty funny. They also did phenomenal impersonations of her too; she has a thick Chicago accent.

Intersting that all she wants to so is blame all of Islam for the horrific attack on Ms. Logan...and then take swipes at the "left" as somehow being complicit in said attack when she is called on it by those who disagree with her point of view. Makes me wonder, what religion or political ideology does she blame for the 300,000+ violent sexual assualts that happen to women in THIS country every year? Where is her outrage and moral superiority when it comes to her own back yard? What a sick, twisted woman.

Lets post this horrific, racist stupidity from Debbie Shlussel for everyone to enjoy...

The reaction of the left to this article is funny in its predictability. Sooo damn predictable. Of course I don’t support “sexual assault” or violence against Lara Logan, and I said that nowhere here. RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. Your premature articulation is a problem. I did say that it warms my heart when reporters who openly deny that Islam is violent and constantly promote it get the same kinds of threats of violence I get every day from Muslims. Because now they know how it feels. They aren’t so dismissive of the threats when those threats are directed at them, instead of at us little people. And yet they still won’t admit that THIS. IS. ISLAM. Lara Logan was among the chief cheerleaders of this “revolution” by animals. Now she knows what Islamic revolution is really all about.

I’ve received many moronic insults and threats of violence from the left in the hours since I posted this, showing me more and more that there is very little difference between the left and the dominant, violent, fanatical forces in Islam. In fact, there’s really no difference at all. My favorite part of all of the responses is their common claim that the “real rapists” of the world are white males and American soldiers. Uh-uh, you keep telling yourself that, as you live here under the protection of American soldiers. Riiiight–It’s not Muslims who don’t respect women and treat them as baby factories, sex toys, and property. It’s America and the West. You keep tellin’ yourself that, morons.****

As I’ve noted before, it bothers me not a lick when mainstream media reporters who keep telling us Muslims and Islam are peaceful get a taste of just how “peaceful” Muslims and Islam really are. In fact, it kinda warms my heart. Still, it’s also a great reminder of just how “civilized” these “people” (or, as I like to call them in Arabic, “Bahai’im” [Animals]) are:

Alhamdillullah [Praise allah], Islam Fan Lara Logan Gets a Taste of Islam

On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.

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.

I am not condoning for one second what happened to her.

But, she should have never been there in the first place. There was just as much anti-american sentiment surrounding Mubarak as anything else. The people of Egypt knew he was a puppet of the United States. There was a revolution going down. Whoever sent her there was negligent at best and should lose their job. Just look at what happened to Anderson Cooper and crew and anyone that thought that place was safe for Americans, let alone a white american girl, was flat out stupid.

Reporters have been in dangerous places forever. It is what they do.

I don’t blame her for this. Reporters go to **** ty places all the time. This attack allegedly lasted for 20-30 minutes. It’s amazing she is still alive.

Things like this, and the beating of Anderson Cooper, make me scratch my head and really wonder what this “revolution” is all about. I guess the fact still remains that there is a portion of people who, as they say in the Dark Knight, just want to see the world burn.

She wasn't the only "white american girl" there reporting, i.e. doing her job, i.e. what she chose to do, i.e. what reporters have been doing for decades in dangerous places all over the world. I'm sure she knew the dangers and put herself in harms way. That doesn't mean "she should have never been there in the first place", just as it doesn't make what happened to her any less appalling ir shameful.

So you're saying that she was forced to go there?

Just because she chose to put herself in harm's way doesn't make what happened any less appalling, disgusting, distrubing, etc. It also doesn't mean that we shouldn't feel bad for her and offer prayers or whatever kind of support we can in our own ways. To tacitly imply she deserved it on ANY level is disgusting and shameful, IMO.

I agree with this.

Perhaps the only thing she might have done differently is to know the culture a bit better? Not even sure that would have helped. I think about a woman like Christianne Amanpour (sp?) and she is usually dressed in somewhat traditional garb when over there (I really hope I didn’t come across as the guy who blames the rape victim for wearing a short dress right there; its not what I meant at all). This is just sick mob mentality. It almost seems well coordinated too. She had security, cameras, etc. It took 20-30 minutes to rescue her with 20 soldiers.

You really think that is what that poster meant? I think he was just responding to the idiotic assertion that someone should be fired for sending her there. I can't imagine the poster meant that this is anything other than an awful event.

It was a REVOLUTION, not a block party. I wonder how many revolutions she had covered? I wonder how many food riots she had covered? Had she ever been embed with troops in Iraq or Afghanistan? I don't know her history as a reporter, so I can't speak for her experience.

Like I said, what happened to her was awful. She should have never been there, period.

The media did not report on the anti-american sentiment at all. We had 30 years with Mubarak under our thumb, that is what happens when you prop up regimes.

(although I like "jackwagon" more than "imbecile")

If I am "the poster" you are referring to, you are indeed correct. If I am not, well then carry on.

So you are speaking from pure ignorance and have no f'ing idea what you are talking about when you assert that "She should have never been there, period". Got it.

How much anti-American sentiment was there exactly? What is your source if the media did not report it? Were you there?

Sorry, I should have quoted. I am thinking that fanfrom 71's comment to JPB was just saying no one should be fired and I didn't take from that post he was saying she was forced to go. She is a brave reporter period and I admired her before this and I admire her now.

Just two weeks ago 3 U.S. reporters got their asses beat down over there so I think questioning the wisdom of any reporter putting themselves or being placed in a position that has already proven dangerous is not unreasonable.

What happen to Ms. Logan is inexcusable and I hope she has a full recovery and is able to put this behind her at least enough to carry on. I doubt the perpetrators will ever be caught much less justice served, but one can hope.

As for the OP, yeah we all lose it now and again but it still doesn’t come close to the foul crap that happens on other sites.
