Nobody's Opinion

Lara Logan: Alive by the Grace of God

Nobody Wins: The rape and violent beating of Lara Logan, CBS’s Chief Foreign Affairs reporter in Cairo this week, was appalling. Everyone agreed how brave she is…how talented she was…
****
Sorry, I’m going to go a bit further. For all her courage, the woman was just downright stupid. The whole point in life, no matter what job you have: is not to get yourself killed.
****
I have long blond hair, and every Muslim man that I run into here in my neighborhood gives me a look as if they would like to do to me JUST what happened to her. The hatred oozes, out of them. I give it right back to them, but deep down inside, I feel it’s still my country, so they can just go jump on a camel.
****
BUT…I wouldn’t do that in Egypt. Where was HER boss? Really…what WAS she thinking? She could charm them with her good looks? Couldn’t she have sent out a Muslim looking man reporter? Or given updates from the balcony of her hotel like the CNN reporters? Is CBS so hard up for viewers that they have to send out the good-looking blond?
****
Since Lara has worked in Afghanistan, surely she knows how Muslim men feel about blonds. But…I guess when you are being protected by the great American soldier…you start to thinking nothing will happen to YOU personally. Evidently, Lara and her crew had been out in the crowd before this incident. and felt safe. But was it nighttime? Daytime?
****
You could say she didn’t expect it…but Lara knew that Anderson Cooper had been beaten up…and two of Fox’s male reporters barely got out with their lives. Also, Lara and her crew were arrested by the Egyptian army and some of her crew members were beaten, before this horrible event.
****
But— the story of the great uprising of the Egyptian democratic and peaceful demonstrations MUST be presented to the world, so out she went. The more reports on T.V. about the joy and glory of it all, was just too important for the liberals, and she felt it was her job.
****
What’s the saddest part of this…is that it’s just another story. If this had happened in our parents generation, a President would have condemned the action of the whole nation…sternly, and with threats. Everyone in the media, kept the story on her bravery…and IGNORED the fact that the Muslims…hate American, Jews, women, (especially blonds) and they are NOT our friends.
****
After all, the attack was not one or two…but 200. So they act like it was just a mob rule sort of thing, and had NOTHING to do with the average Muslim.
****
Right…and Nancy Pelosi has never done Botox, and hates chocolate covered strawberries.
****
Liberalism, laced with the idea that a woman can do anything a man can, almost killed her.
****
Obama called her up it is reported …to say what? Sorry, they hate the Jews not Americans? Don’t take it personal? Muslims are good people, as is the fabulous Islamic religion?
The Muslims cried “Jew, Jew” as they beat her. They knew she wasn’t Jewish…they’re just gutless, spineless, despicable snakes.
 
Nobody Wins when we ignore the facts of Islam. Obama, and his liberal media could get us all killed. And in his next move at the UN…he will stand against Israel.
You know, Bill O’ Reilly ‘s feeling is that we must act respectful of the man in office…out of respect for the Office. This nobody thinks that because we respect the office, this is the time we must stand up for it, and attack Obama at every turn with reality.
****
We might not be as lucky as Lara f we don’t start calling out Obama soon.
****
She’s still alive thank goodness…and it’s by the grace of God.
****
Allah could have cared less.

    Lara Logan was a gorgeous chick, but now she is garbage due to being tainted by shitskin jizz!
    Any man that would fuck her now is obviously a liberal moron who doesn’t realize that he IS getting diseased and contaminated sloppy seconds from shit for brains sand nigger rapists!

  4. Thanks for that long essay amfortas. Like I said: she was stupid to go into that mob.

    And we also cannot prove the “rape” We can only go by what is reported.

    Nevetherless, the Muslim men stone their women..they are NOT the same as the Western men, who get blamed all the time with false accusations.

  5. Lara Logan has been accused of being naively provocative, a very attractive young woman in Western dress in a country where such open displays of pulchritude are considered immoral.

  6. I agree, Lara was not a victim, but an active participant in a criminal act. Perhaps a few decades in prison might help Lara to change her mind for participating in such conduct in the future. Send her back to Egypt, we sure don’t need people like her here in the U.S.A.

  7. Something to ponder, Joy,

    The Overblown Coverage of Lara Logan’s Alleged Sexual Assault

    By False Rape Society | Thu, Feb 17 2011, 08:49 AM

    America has a new patron saint of atrocities against women. She’s Lara Logan, the CBS reporter allegedly attacked in Cairo last Friday in the jubilation following the resignation of former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak.

    President Obama personally called Logan yesterday to see how she was doing.

    Headlines screamed that it’s an unsafe world for women reporters, and for women generally. Among many, many, many others: “Logan Attack Highlights Women’s Plight”; “Should the media pull women journalists out of war zones?”; “Sex attacks are shameful secret job hazard faced by female war reporters”; “Lara Logan Assault More Impactful Than [OJ] Simpson, [Frankie] Muniz Attack Scandals”; and “Egyptian women’s issues highlighted by Logan case.”

    Ms. Logan isn’t just a reporter any more. She is a symbol of the oppression of an entire gender. She is Lorena Bobbitt, Jessica Lynch, and Crystal Gail Mangum, with a camera crew.

    And it’s all another big step back for women. The over-the-top coverage says that women, by virtue of their gender, should be immune from harm even though men aren’t. It’s the same mentality that tells our college-aged daughters they must “Take Back the Night,” even though it’s always been theirs — our sons have always been at far greater risk of physical assault, and everyone knows it. Women can never hope to be truly “equal” so long as they are plopped up on a pedestal to be worshipped and adored, free from the risks men are expected to face.

    We really know nothing about what happened to Ms. Logan, except for what CBS told us in a released statement:

    “On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS chief foreign 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.”

    Thank goodness for that group of women! (Oh, and for the 20 soldiers, too.) No other witnesses have come forward, and even the nature of the alleged attack has not been made public.

    Yet, somehow, we know the attack was “brutal.” Read what a Washington Post reporter wrote, just don’t let your head explode: “Her sexual assault was clearly a brutal event, although the exact nature of it remains unclear.”

    How something can be “clearly” brutal when we don’t even know what happened tells us more about the Washington Post than we might care to know.

    In another report, a journalist described the attack against Logan as “brutal,” and noted that Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was “brutally beheaded” in 2002.

    Excuse me, but to use the same word to describe the vague, unsubstantiated alleged sexual assault against Ms. Logan as is used to describe one of the most gruesome, inhumane public executions on record is a barometer of how overblown the Logan incident has become.

    The fact is, attacks on reporters — mostly male but some female, too — are not unusual. When they occur, trumpets rarely blare and headlines don’t scream.

    Anderson Cooper was attacked in Egypt while he was reporting on the turmoil in Tahrir Square. Cooper’s cameras kept rolling during the melee. A female member of his crew was protected against the crush of humanity.

    A BBC journalist and his cameraman were deliberately attacked — cut, bruised, nose bloodied — and his cameraman beaten in Yemen by government supporters while they were reporting on violent protests spilling over from the Mubarak chaos.

    ABC News reporter Miguel Marquez was attacked while reporting from Pearl Square in Manama, Bahrain. Marquez was covering a security crackdown on anti-government protesters who had gathered in the square.

    The fact of the matter is that journalists from Egypt, Great Britain, the United States, India, Australia, Greece and other countries have been jumped, beaten, detained and interrogated while reporting on the uprising against Mubarak. Even Al-Jazeera’s Cairo office was stormed by thugs who burned the facility. “In a one-day span, attacks on reporters included 30 detentions, 26 assaults and eight instances of equipment seized, and plainclothes and uniformed agents reportedly entered at least two hotels where international journalists were staying to confiscate media equipment . . . .”

    Nevertheless, some will say, female reporters are subject to worse atrocities than their male counterparts by virtue of their gender.

    Go tell that to Daniel Pearl’s widow. It’s simply not so.

    Longtime war correspondent and author Anna Badkhen, who has covered wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Israel, the Palestinian territories, Chechnya and Kashmir for a number of media outlets including The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, FRONTLINE, and Salon, said this:

    “I categorically do not believe that women war correspondents are more vulnerable than war correspondents who are men.” She continued: “Female and male correspondents have been killed, maimed, wounded in conflict zones. Female and male correspondents have been raped. . . . . Male colleagues I know have been subjected to torture that involved their sexual organs. The nature of torture, the origin of torture, is to degrade, to render the tortured helpless. . . . . As a rule, war does not discriminate.”

    Susan Milligan, a political reporter who has covered war in Iraq and the Balkans, said this about war: “It’s a risk for everyone. I was at greater risk for being raped, probably. But [compared to her male colleagues] I was at lower risk of being killed.”

    Did you get that? Women reporters are at lower risk of being killed, according to a woman who should know, yet, a headline screams: “Logan Attack Highlights Women’s Plight.”

    Leila Fadel, the Cairo bureau chief for The Washington Post, explained that the alleged sexual assault against Logan “appears to be an isolated incident.” A woman’s rights activist in Egypt suggested the alleged attack might have been rooted in xenophobia.

    None of that matters. Ms. Logan has been firmly implanted on the pedestal, and it’s my guess that any attempt to dislodge her will be decried as misogyny.

    But women will have no hope for true equality so long as she’s up there.

  12. Lara Logan strikes me as another Geraldo Rivera(ish) tv news journalist who wants to be top rated, awarded and respected among her peers and audience; willing to go where the action and danger are; willing to go in deeper and farther taking more and greater risks ! She`s got the “purty” goin` for her ! He had the moose-stache !

    I will never believe she “asked” to be beaten and raped….no man or group of them is justified in beating and raping anyone !! Period !

  13. Why isn’t Lara Logan not being charged with prostitution since she was allegedly having sex in the street multiple times? Shouldn’t she have waited at least until she got back to a room at the hotel? It’s amazing what some tramps will do.

    What happened to her, could have happened to any American women in that situtation. Even you…or me.

    NO woman asks for that.

  16. It appears Lara Logan got what she wanted. She is not a victim. Some people might even call her a tramp. Tramps are just tramps and seem to bring on much of the torment in their lives by their own decisions. Wonder if Lara got any money for doing tricks in the street? Will she claim that money on her taxes as a tax deduction for work?
