One thing you learn when covering Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft is to never declare anything he does “rock bottom,” because he always manages to find a new low.
Today, he blamed CBS reporter Lara Logan and “her liberal belief system” for her sexual assault and beating in Egypt. In a post headlined “After Sexual Assault & Beating... CBS Reporter Logan Learns That Political Correctness Is a Killer” Hoft writes [emphasis in original]:
Lara Logan is lucky she's alive.
Her liberal belief system almost got her killed on Friday. This talented reporter will never be the same.
Why did this attractive blonde female reporter wander into Tahrir Square last Friday? Why would she think this was a good idea? Did she not see the violence in the square the last three weeks? Did she not see the rock throwing? Did she miss the camels? Did her colleagues tell her about the Western journalists who were viciously assaulted on the Square? Did she forget about the taunts from the Egyptian thugs the day before? What was she thinking? Was it her political correctness that about got her killed? Did she think things would be different for her?
Earlier today, we documented the unfortunate wave of victim-blaming and ugliness Logan's sexual assault has spawned. Add Hoft to the list.
Hoft has updated his post with a response to Media Matters, saying that “the post stands” :
UPDATE: Sorry Media Matters the post stands.
The far left does not like it when their tenets are questioned. It must be hard when someone holds a mirror up and you see that your twisted agenda has caused such havoc and pain around the world. These warped individuals must have missed that day of school when they talked about playing with fire.
One final question- Does Media Matters ever post anything that is not a dishonest smear on their website?
