Lara Logan The World’s Litmus Test on Sexism, Racism, Self Loathing and a Thought….

What a Bomb to be dropped on all of us! First and foremost what happened to Lara Logan is horrific there is no disputing that, but that the horror has not end but only continued when she returned to the US is a demonstration of how Women are viewed and treated everywhere. Sexism is a Fight worth Fighting, Racism is a Fight worth Fighting, and a lot of women need to address their self loathing.

As of this morning Mofo Politics has deleted their offensive comments and Nir Rosen a fellow at NYU has resigned.

Thought- It seems pretty strategic that Lara Logan was singled out and Sexually Assaulted. The question is… Who’s behind it? It all makes for a great Anti Muslim, Anti-Pro-Democracy* smear campaign if you ask me. I look forward to hearing from Lara Logan what her take on all this, if or when she is prepared to do so.

* That’s a mind bender  Anti-Pro-Democracy !
