Skip to comments.'No one told her to go there': Now FEMALE pundit lays into Egypt sex attack victim Lara Logan
Posted on 02/17/2011 8:52:52 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
A female political pundit has been heavily criticised for suggesting Lara Logan should have seen her sex attack coming - and for calling the Egyptians who were protesting for democracy 'animals'.
Debbie Schlussel posted a picture of Miss Logan on her blog, under the headline: 'Islam Fan Lara Logan Gets a Taste of Islam', before adding 'How fitting that Lara Logan was liberated by Muslims in Liberation Square while she was gushing over the other part of the liberation".'
It comes as an American academic, Nir Rosen, yesterday resigned from his post at New York University after calling Miss Logan a 'warmonger' who was 'trying to outdo' rival news correspondent Anderson Cooper.
CBS correspondent Miss Logan endured a 'brutal and sustained' sexual assault and beating while covering the resignation of President Mubarak in Egypt.
The mother-of-one had been surrounded by an angry mob of 200 people before the assault which is thought to have lasted up to half an hour. She had to be saved by a group of women and 20 Egyptian soldiers and was later taken to hospital.
Yesterday Schlussel, who is Jewish, wrote: 'Lara Logan was among the chief cheerleaders of this 'revolution' by animals.
'Now she knows what Islamic revolution is really all about.
'So sad, too bad, Lara.

the truth hurts
OK, so I read what Schlussel said.
How is this “laying into” Logan?
Forget I asked. This article is just a liberal getting her knickers in a knot.
She has freedom of speech but I don’t want to see Schussel on TV in a week bitching about all the hate mail and death threats shes had.
Besides, too many provocative pictures of Lara in bathing suit are available on the internet. Apparently, she was known to the crowd before she came to Egypt.
I wonder what her attitude toward Islam is now?
sounds a lot like ‘she shouldn’t have dressed that way’
argument...not very ‘progressive’ of her.
Are you sure she was rapped ?
Debbie is spot-on.
Those of you with offended sensibilities can just go fan yourselves in the Ladies room.
The incident with Lara Logan revealed these animals for what they are and, as such, may possibly redound negatively to his Zero-ness who has been taking credit for everything up until now.
So am I. She actually did have to go there because it was her job and her employer sent her there; she wasn’t out there cheerleading.
But I think that the media, which is wildly pro-Islamist, may have had a wakeup call. These peaceful, celebrating Muslims beat a male reporter and sexually attacked a female reporter, and would have done a lot more damage had it not been for the Egyptian army. I hope CBS et al. think twice before sending their reporters (of either sex) into a crowd like this again.
Debbie Schussel is blaming the wrong person. The real culprits are the Muslims, but the true fools were the media chains.
Thank you. If someone had told me how many freepers would be from the “yeah well, she was asking for it” school I would have called them liars. I would have been wrong.
How there can be ANY justification made for a mob of brutal savages raping a woman is beyond me.
Did the soldiers arrest the rapist?which I still believe the rapist were Muslim Brotherhood, Obama thug friends..
It is very sad that some people believe this poor woman deserved this..Sick society!!
The reporter was truly unwise and like most taken in by contemporary PC conventions, dangerously unaware of the nature of evil in the world. But it is reprehensible to to take such vicious glee in such an ungodly act as a gang sexual assault as Debbie S. did.
Not her fault she was raped.
But only those who go into the ocean get attacked by sharks.
Lara Logan did not deserve to be raped or molested in any way.
I think Debbie Schussel is totally out of line.
At this point, I'm disgusted with FReepers who blame Lara for being raped. I know of at least one thread that was pulled.
While I agree she should have used better judgement, it is in no way an excuse for muslim men being on the same level as animals and not being able to control their barbaric urges. Islam itself encourages animalistic behavior in muslim men.
Well, the possibility was certainly foreseeable. that doesn’t make the horror any less, nor the perps any less guillty and despicable, nor Islam any better.
But people that take risks, take risks. They have to be prepared to lose, occasionally. So it helps to know when you are actually taking a risk, and what kind of people you will be meeting.
You can be assaulted in Church on Sunday morning, but the odds are less than those outside a bar on Saturday night.
“It comes as an American academic, Nir Rosen, yesterday resigned from his post at New York University after calling Miss Logan a ‘warmonger’ who was ‘trying to outdo’ rival news correspondent Anderson Cooper.”
Nir sounds like a Muslim. You punish the girl who gets raped. Not the guys who do it.
I am too. Everybody, put down your politics for 2 secs and be a human being for God’s sake. She was a reporter covering a news story. Whether she supported the revolution or not, whether she was a lib or not...none of that matters. Debbie Schluessel’s comments are just as bad as Nir Rosen’s. Shame on both of them. Shame on the left. Shame on the right. SHAME!!!!
Mrs. Logan and her family will be in my prayers.
What ever happened to the time-honored tradition of keeping your FREEKING MOUTH SHUT?
Did Debbie Schussel say that Logan deserved to be raped or molested?
No? Then why is she totally out of line?
Its cognitive dissonance taken to a brutal extreme.
Real Muslims in the Mid-East (not the ones on exhibit by CBS or CNN) tell us all the time - uncovered women are whores, women from the corrupt west are whores, and women travelling without male relatives are whores.
CBS and Ms. Logan have heard this 1000 times, yet their ideology did not allow them to understand the words.
You can’t criticize third world Muslim barbarians, so you have to blame the victim.
off with her head?
The Muzzies use rape as a form of jihad by the followers of Islam. If Logan had ever mentioned that she would have been attacked by the Left as being a racist.
Exactly. There was almost universal condemnation on this forum of Nir Rosen’s comments; now I’m frankly shocked at the tenor of some of the responses here to Debbie Schlussel’s.
I’m as partisan as the next person, sometimes, but I’m increasingly convinced that politics has poisoned our humanity, as well as our ability to reason.
Do you think she should be whipped to death? stoned to death? or beheaded for the crime of being raped?
Also, do you think a $200 fine for the rapists is too high?
Thank you, and keep hammering that in.
Some here don't seem to realize that many of our overseas Embassy staff are female, are are many of the overseas dependents of male staffers.
Do they expect them to all submit to sharia in islamic turd world countries by wearing hijab, abaya or burkas and blame them if the get molested or raped by a savage pack of koranimals?
The world is not a safe place... and some us have to be in unpleasant places, and deal with unpleasant people so we can do our jobs - for the safety and benefit of others.
Thank you. I've just avoided these threads because they are so disgusting.
Debbie, nobody told you to go there (metaphorically speaking) either, but you did anyway.
There isn’t any justification for what happened. But the point here is that Logan has been a cheerleader for Islam and her own network covered up this attack so it would’t have to report the truth about how Islam operates.
And by the way, actually somebody did tell Lara Logan to go there. CBS News told her to go there and get the story.
It doesn’t matter if you’re right.
You can NEVER win with this argument.
Schussel just picked a losing battle.
Snoop Dog...is that you?
Well - she shouldn't have dressed that way. Even a first time tourist to Egypt knows enough to wear a blouse buttoned up.
Victim focus is usually a leftist charge against the right. How convenient!
Schlussel always did give me the creeps.
Excellent point! CBS sent one of their foreign correspondents to cover a major news story. It happened to be her. It’s not like she was Rachel Corrie who went over there as a private citizen to stir up trouble. Ms. Logan was doing her job. Her politics have nothing to do with this. She should have our support, prayers, and well wishes.
In the cirles she keeps, she would still be the only one to possibly change her position in Islam.
If she would have taken her liberal goggles off, she would have know what Islam is all about and would not have gone out in the square (actually a circle). Apparently, those in charge of her activities thought Islam was a religion of peace also.
In the circles she keeps, she would still be the only one to possibly change her position on Islam.
“Do you think she should be whipped to death? stoned to death? or beheaded for the crime of being raped?”
No, do you?
Do you think its proper to hide the fact CBS (with her willing participation) put her into a very dangerous situation? A situation with an entirely foreseeable outcome.
Do you frequently ignore reality?
Interesting that you bring up Rachel Corrie.
It’s universally accepted that she deserved to get smashed by a Caterpillar.
But what if she was raped?
I’m guessing you and Dr. Scarpetta and others would have VEHEMENTLY denied that she would have deserved to be raped.
So why the contradictions?
The Lame Stream Media told us ad nauseum how peaceful these demonstrators were, how much they wanted democracy, blah, blah, blah, while the truth was far from that. People are trying to compare Schlussel to Nir Rosen and the comparison is not there. Rosen is a lying Islamist apologizer who hates the USA and hates Israel. Notice how CBS tried to hide this story. Too many reporters were cheering on the animals.
