If you are as adept as I am at picking Jews out of a police lineup, you would realize upon first glance that South African-born TV reporter and war correspondent Lara Logan  is not Jewish. Like Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron , another South African-born blonde butterfly, Logan has the sort of icily superhuman Nordic beauty that leads one to suspect she was designed in a biolab by some lascivious descendant of Hugo Boss. She’s so decisively non-Jewish, bagels immediately go stale in her presence.
Still, this didn’t stop a mob of 200-300 Egyptian males, drunk on the illusory victories of the “Arab Spring,” from gang-raping Logan in Tahrir Square in 2011 after one of the men in the crowd shouted out that she was a Jew and thus deserved to be defiled.
And although I’m unaware of Logan ever even using the word “Jews” in a negative context — she’s said several unflattering things about Nazis, though –, it hasn’t stopped big-name Jewish public-relations agents from accusing her of being a rabid, vehement, virulent, seething, venomous, poisonous, totally yucky Jew-hater.
Clearly, Lara Logan has a Jew problem. Or Jews have a problem with Lara Logan. Or maybe the problems go both ways, compounded by the fact that each side has an array of problems with the other side, all of it raised to a higher power by the fact that the very word “Jew” is hopelessly problematic.
The so-called Arab Spring of 2011 inspired a tremendously naïve instant optimism among the chi-chi urban leftoid Apple Store types who felt swept up in an epochal moment when technology and progress had broken through superstition and ignorance and they could finally bring Western ideas about progress to the Middle East and pretend it wasn’t colonialism.
But that entire narrative went silent  after the night of February 11, 2011 in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo. The blinkered optimists were suddenly crestfallen to realize that these Egyptian revolutionaries were far more rapey and lynch-mobby and toxically male . . . and, heck, anti-Semitic . . . than they’d imagined in their dreams.
Logan, who’d been a CBS correspondent since 2002, had been broadcasting Egyptians’ gleeful response to the abdication of their President, Hosni Mubarak, live from the square for about an hour . . . until the moment the battery went dead on her cameraman’s light, when the mob got a bit rowdier and someone shouted out that Logan was an Israeli or Jewish spy. A CBS representative later said that the accusation was like “a match to gasoline,” and a huge group of brown, sweaty, leering Muslim males began pawing at Logan’s hair and clothes as she screamed helplessly.
Here  is the expression of a natural blonde who realizes she’s going to be put through a meat grinder at the hands of Mohammedan cavemen whose Jewdar was so bad that they mistook her for a Jewess.
A few months later, Logan finally spoke publicly about the prolonged sexual assault in an interview with 60 Minutes . She says that the mob of sweaty Egyptians, inflamed with imaginary anti-Semitic lust, raped her “with their hands” for an estimated 25 minutes, tearing off her clothes and yanking at her hair and groping at her body and recording it all on their cellphones until she finally found refuge amid a group of homeless Muslim women who protected her until a group of Egyptian soldiers beat back the crowd and escorted her to safety.
I realize I risk sounding indelicate here, but this is hardly a delicate situation. One would think that being mistaken for a Jew and then put through a psychosexual wringer for nearly a half-hour at the grubby paws of leering Egyptian Muzzies would at least have earned Lara Logan some sympathy points with international Jewry — I mean, talk about “taking one for the team” without even being a member of the team!
But the Official Jews — meaning the ones who are called upon to provide Official Jew Comments to the press — are cutting Lara Logan no slack. Remember, these are the people who said “never forget,” and they weren’t kidding.
As a non-Jew who thinks even the word “Jew” is funny and that the very concept of “Jews” is even funnier, I take great delight in trotting out before the jury the assembled “evidence” that Lara Logan is a dirty, no-good, low-down, triflin’, Jew-hatin’ hussy.
During an interview with FOX News last November, she said  that several people across the world had compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele:
And so in that moment, what you see on Dr. Fauci, this is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele, Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps, and I am talking about people all across the world are saying this.
So she didn’t directly compare Fauci to Mengele. She said others had compared him to Mengele. And it’s clear that she was saying Mengele was the bad guy and the Jews were innocent sheep, and by extension, people who refused the COVID vaccine had her sympathy because they were poor, humble, oppressed Jewish sheep — i.e., the good guys.
Regardless, Official Jew Outlets such as the Auschwitz Memorial  and time-traveling Space Jew Jonathan Greenblatt  of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned  Logan’s statement and hinted that if they didn’t continue to aggressively and loudly condemn it, another Holocaust might suddenly break out, so don’t say they didn’t warn you if it does.
In what became like a Three Stooges pie fight where shame substituted for cream pies, Logan even retweeted  a Jewish follower on Twitter who wrote, “Shame on the Auschwitz Museum for shaming Lara Logan for sharing that Jews like me believe Fauci is a modern day Mengele.” This, in turn, had Logan being shamed for promoting “Attacks on Auschwitz Museum .”
On a February 17 episode of FlashPoint on a Christian TV network called The Victory Channel, Logan likened herself and other Right-wing people of faith to Jews on a death march to Auschwitz:
But understand this: You are sitting at the gates of Auschwitz right now. We are there. We walked the nine miles. We’ve been marched to our deaths. And there is no going back, right? At this point there is no going back. The choice is whether we go through those gates or fight. And that is the moment where we are in history. I know where I stand, right? It’s very, very clear and it’s always been clear every day of my life.
In March, on a podcast called Cowboy Logic, she doubled down on the “sitting at the gates of Auschwitz” thing, warning that the world was on the brink of annihilation while its leaders were consumed with trivialities: “We’re sitting at the gates of Auschwitz and we’re arguing about whether the, you know, the smoke coming out of the ovens is climate change.”
Hyperbolic? Sure. Paranoid? Perhaps. So hysterical that it suggests early menopause? I wouldn’t rule it out. But again, as with the Mengele comment, she’s saying Nazis are bad and Jews are good. She wants to be a Jew. She wants to be a poor, suffering, downtrodden, misunderstood Jew.
So what’s her crime here? Impersonating a Jew?
No. She had to go and mention the Rothschilds, who are still smarting over that incident when Marjorie Taylor-Greene  hinted they were manipulating the weather using a Giant Jewish Space Laser.
On yet another podcast  — methinks Lady Logan needs to lay off the podcasts for a bit — she blamed the Rothschild banking family for funding Darwin’s theory of evolution:
Does anyone know when, who employed Darwin? Where Darwinism comes from? Well, I mean, you know, look it up. The Rothschilds. . . . It goes right back to 10 Downing Street, the same people who employed Darwin, and that’s when Darwin wrote his theory of evolution, and so on and so on. And I’m not saying that none of that is true. I’m just saying Darwin was hired by someone to come up with a theory — based on evidence, okay, fine. But even the people, the scientists, all of the people who can take you back to the Big Bang, what is the one question they can never, ever, ever answer? They can never tell you what that was. Whether it is the molecules or the energy, or, you know, all that stuff.
I could have done without the bit about “the molecules or the energy” at the end. It only makes her sound dumber. But I was unaware of any Darwin/Rothschild connection. At Ms. Logan’s urging, I looked it up. Writing as I do under a deadline, I could find nothing confirming that the Rothschilds funded Darwin. Maybe they did. Maybe they didn’t. It’s such a muddled premise, I’m not even sure where Lara Logan was going with it.
But ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, who always seems to be lurking just off-camera waiting to pounce into the spotlight the moment it becomes advantageous, said,
There’s nothing accurate or factual about blaming Jewish financiers for financing Darwin or claiming that Jews are trying to form a world government. That’s the kind of messaging more suited for a white supremacist chat room than for a major news network.
Wait a minute — Jews are trying to form a world government? Lara Logan didn’t say anything about that! That’s an interesting concept, though.
As far as I can discern, the most openly anti-Jewish thing Lara Logan ever did was to use her verified account on the Right-wing social media site Gettr to share a rambling article  that hammers heavily on the Rothschilds’ historic meddling in world banking markets, accuses Putin of having “New World Order Teutonic Zionist” financiers, and features a graphic  accusing Zionists of being an unregulated international terrorist nuclear cabal who are secretly behind Communism, radical feminism, multiculturalism, one-world government, the Federal Reserve, and “tabloid journalism and pornography.”
Okay. I’m a fair goy. I can see how that might raise some Jewish hackles. And it’s hard to think that, being trained in journalism, Lara Logan wouldn’t have at least read such a spicy article before sharing it. Maybe she’s soured on the Jews. Maybe it’s because they didn’t have her back the night all those Egyptians were grabbing her ass.
I’m a peacemaker by nature, so here’s my solution:
I think the Official Jews need to go easier on Lara Logan. Although she had no choice in the matter, she was gang-raped in their name. In fact, I think the Official Jews need to go easier on everyone. I know you people get touchy when it seems that others don’t like you, but have you ever considered that your incurable touchiness might be the reason why they don’t like you?
I think Lara Logan needs to forgive the Jews, because a lot of them clearly can’t help how they are. God made them that way, and for some reason, he chose them anyway. I also think Lara Logan needs to forgive those dumb Egyptian men who thought she was Jewish. Finally, she needs to stop comparing everything to Jews and Nazis, because it’s always a mistake to make other people’s problems your own.
