Debbie Schlussel Has a Point RE: Lara Logan

I notice that I am getting mega-hits today on the subject of Debbie Schlussel. I have noted in prior posts that Debbie appears to be unhinged.  (See here and here.)  I have not changed my layman's opinion about Schlussel's mental health.  However, her recent column about CBS reporter Lara Logan, though tactless, was largely factual.  Let me explain.

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.

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].
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.

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.

To paraphrase RSM "that there is funny I don't care who you are"

One of the reasons that the mainstream media will not dwell on what happened to Logan is that doing so might get listeners and readers to do a little research of their own and thereby uncover the willful whitewash of Islam -- and of what's going on with these uprisings in the Middle East.

Great post.

High-larious comment about CJ.

Hi, Stogie.

I have mentioned elsewhere that I fear this girl will come out in time as a defender of those who raped her, blaming it on, for example, Sarah Palin or Yanqui imperialisme, or capitalism. I hope she won't disgrace herself with clear foolishness, but one cannot have such a hope anymore, not after we have witnessed so many siding with rapists and murderers against the obvious good.

My guess, for what it's worth, is that the men these women know are Michael Moores and Charles Johnsons. Any five foot tall, 20 something girl is a match for those men, and why should she fear them? And Muslims men? They are in need of mothering and nurturing by sensitive suburban American women who will protect them from racism. When people live with that as their personal understanding of reality, the strange thing is that they aren't, men and women alike, gang-raped more often.

But wait. I just happen to have written, however guardedly, about three such cases I encountered in the Middle East. I could have written about more if I had the stomach for it.

When these people do believe their own bullshit, when they think themselves gods who control all the universe simply because they are the smartest and most moral and enlightened, then all it takes is one thug to ruin a very pretty dream. No, it's no good seeing them meet reality; but it must happen that they do eventually find out in the flesh.

I don't like seeing D.S. gloating about it. I can understand her rage against the fools who make these things happen, but I don't like it.

I think I'm just saying, "Hello, Stogie."

Dag, good to hear from you! You were one of my earliest blogger inspirations. I agree with your observations about Lara Logan, the Middle Eastern men and Debbie Schlussel. Thanks for writing!

Was she raped?

Stogie said...

Anon, that is my understanding.

Bonjour Stogie , cette affaire est sordide ,mais à quoi s'attendre d'autre de la part des musulmans vis à vis de la femme blanche ?comment cette dame a t-elle pu être aussi imprudente ? est-ce que cela ne pouvait pas arriver à cette dame par ce qu'elle est d'une chaine TV de gauche ? Ce sont des primitifs aux bas instincts ,ils n'ont de respect pour personne et haîssent tout ce qui n'est pas l'islam ! ceux qui à longueur de temps nous parlent de l'islam de paix,de lumière, seront chatiés comme ceux qui ne veulent pas de l'islam ! En France ,la situation devient explosive , personne n'a parlé ( ou très rare, 5 secondes ) de Mme Logan Lara ! il ne faut pas que cela nuise aux musulmans... ! nous avons la Police de la pensée maintenant !certains médias dhimmis en arrivent même à mettre dans les articles des prénoms français pour désigner les auteurs de délits qui sont d'origine étrangère!les agressions de femmes , de personnes agées,les vols, les viols ,(récemment une jeune touriste Américaine s'est faite violée à la sortie du tramway à Nice )sont de plus en plus nombreux,les prisons sont pleines ,et les politiques construisent de plus en plus de mosquées , déjà plus de 2000 ! les musulmans en demandent le double !et 3000 tunisiens débarquent en Italie et à la frontière Française ! ils font la révolution chez eux et se sauvent à l'étranger au lieu de reconstruire leurs pays !l'Occident court au suicide s'il ne réagit pas vite! sombre avenir pour la France Stogie .....

Unlike Lara Logan, I suspect that, on some level, Charles Foster Johnson might actually enjoy being raped by a crowd of smelly, hairy Muslims.

The reason he hates Pam Geller is that he is angry about the fact that he is not Pam Geller.

Stogie said...

1389, you may be right. It would be the best action Charley's had for quite some time! :)

Hello Stogie, this affair is sordid, but what can we expect from Muslim men regarding white women?
How could this woman be so careless? Is it because she could never admit the truth due to her association with a leftwing TV network?

These men are primitives of low instincts and have no respect for, and hate anyone who is not a part of Islam!
Those who for a long time have spoken of an Islam of peace and light, will be just as condemned as those who reject Islam! In France, the situation is becoming explosive, no one talks about (or very rarely) Ms. Lara Logan! We must not annoy the Muslims! We have thought police now!

Certain media dhimmis have begun substituting French names in their articles about crimes by foreigners [instead of using their real names that might prejudice the public against Muslim immigrants]. Attacks on women, the aged, robbery and violence (recently a young American tourist was assaulted at the tramway exist in Nice)are more and more numerous, the prisons are full, and the politicians are constructing more and more mosques, now there are more than 2,000! Muslims are demanding that the number be doubled! 3,000 Tunisians have crossed into Italy and the French border! They start a revolution in their country and then seek refuge among foreigners instead of reconstructing their own country!

The West is courting suicide if we do not react quickly! A dark future for France, Stogie...
