A couple of days ago, Debbie wrote a column on her blog to the effect that Lara Logan is one of the many self-deluding liberal reporters for the mainstream media who, as we used to say in high school, "believes her own bullshit."
Schlussel's point was that self-deluding liberals never learn from their flawed ideology; that though raped by a mob of Muslims in Egypt, Logan is likely to go back to believing that Islam is a "religion of peace" and other nonsensical propaganda. I agree with Schlussel on several points: Islam is evil. Islam is violent. Muslims hate our guts because of their religion and for no other reason. To deny this truth is a form of insanity. Of course, liberalism is a form of insanity. At the very least, it is a dangerous form of delusion, where reality is replaced with rigid ideology, wishful thinking and dogma.
Schlussel's comments brought a storm of denunciation and a flood of hatred from the left. She wrote:
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.I suppose that Schlussel could have been a tad more tactful. Her comment about Logan's rape being "fitting" was uncalled for and implies that Schlussel takes pleasure in the dreadful crime against Logan. No one deserves to be raped by a crowd of smelly, hairy Muslims. Well, maybe Charles Johnson, but I digress. Most of us on the right were outraged by the attack on Logan, regardless of Logan's political views.
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.”
Hope you’re enjoying the revolution, Lara! Alhamdilllullah [praise allah].
However, the truth of Schlussel's other statements is undeniable. Islam is the enemy and it is unredeemable, vacuous speeches by our airhead-in-chief notwithstanding.
