    Re: CBS News' Lara Logan Assaulted During Egypt Protests

    This was Lara Logan's fault, she was not escorted by her husband or brothers and she was not wearing hijab. She should face prosecution for tempting this crowd of fine moderate muslim men. Now it is up to her family to execute her for bringing dishonor to her family, right?

    Re: CBS Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Tahrir Square

    Check out what one of the academic elites from NYU tweeted about the reporter following the assault.

    *“Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson. Where was her buddy McCrystal." (That is a reference to CNN journalist Anderson Cooper, and to retired Gen. Stanley Allen McChrystal, who was forced to resign as commander of troops in Afghanistan by President Obama for unflattering comments about administration officials attributed to McChrystal in a Rolling Stone article.)

    *“Yes yes its wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don’t support that. But, it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too.”

    *“Jesus Christ, at a moment when she is going to become a martyr and glorified we should at least remember her role as a major war monger”

    *“Look, she was probably groped like thousands of other women, which is still wrong, but if it was worse than [sic] I’m sorry.”

    I think it's hasty to blame the entire group of protesters for the actions of a few jerks.

    I am sorry this happened to her but she should have known the risks were enormous.
    For the love of god, she was just trying to do her job. Sexual assault of journalists is not a common thing and I doubt this even crossed her mind when she took the assignment.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    This wasn't just Logan being assaulted. According to the Post:

    "[Logan] was not in the country for long -- she'd been thrown out, if you remember -- and had just gone back in," one source said.

    "She had security with her, but it wasn't enough."

    Jubilation of Egypts potentially new country by attacking, sexually assaulting and threatening the beheading of journalists sounds... not so good.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    "Jerk"? That might just be the understatement of the year. I'm getting a little sick of being told not to be too outraged because of who commits a crime. Sometimes outrage is the appropriate response.

    Then insert whatever adjective you'd like

    Be as outraged as you want, just dont lose sight of the fact that this was the responsibility of a handful of individuals and blaming the entire crowd for this is not valid.

    Anger is perfectly find, so long as it doesnt blind you to other important things.

    How is what you're doing any different than the insinuations made towards Tea Partiers because of bad actions by a handful of various idiots within the movement throughout the country?
