Lara Logan Has An Agenda

FeaturedLara Logan Has An Agenda

As Dr. Anthony Fauci is on national television urging Americans to get vaccinated to help protect them from the coronavirus and its variants, conservative media pundits are either comparing him to the Italian dictator, Mussolini, or to Joseph Mengele, the Nazi doctor during world war two who performed horrifying experiments on Jewish prisoners in Nazi death camps. Others are urging viewers to take “kill shots” at the director of the NIAID.

According to Factcheck.org, Waters’ comments were taken out of context, or misinterpreted, but this is the type of rhetoric – laced with violence – that has been directed at Dr. Fauci for sometime now, who has received death threats for doing nothing more sinister than encouraging others to do their part in bringing an end to a pandemic by getting themselves vaccinated.

Since Fauci first criticized Donald Trump’s handling of the pandemic, ever since he recommended school and business closures be enacted, since he dared push back against Trump and the GOP’s enthusiasm for hydroxycloroquine as a treatment for COVID, Trump, his GOP lackeys, and mouthdogs in the media, have had it in for him. They said that his agenda was to undermine Trump, even as their own agenda has been directed at thwarting any effort to alleviate or bring an end to the pandemic, for political purposes, through misinformation, outright lies, and outrageous conspiracy theories regarding the origins of the coronavirus, all in an effort to smear Dr. Fauci and whitewash the previous administration’s unwillingness to take the pandemic seriously and lead the American people through a crisis.

Terrified that his supporters would see him as a weak president if he followed the advise of the CDC on how to properly respond to a pandemic, he chose not wear a mask in public places, and as a result, contracted COVID. Likewise, he discouraged a nationwide lockdown, complaining every step of the way against any sensible response to counter the spreading of a virus that has taken the lives of over a half a million people, always blaming the Democrats for his failures.

“That’s been his strategy from the beginning,” Tara Setmayer, former White House communications director, told The Guardian last year. “That’s how we got into this cluster fuck in the first place. He’s been wishing it away since his intelligence community has been telling him this would be a problem months ago, which is why the country wasn’t prepared, mixed messages were sent and it’s now a red or blue issue to wear a mask and do things that are socially responsible for your health and the people around you.

“That’s Donald Trump’s fault because he did not lead on this issue and was too busy running around calling it a hoax and blaming everything under the sun instead of taking responsibility for leading us through this challenge. It’s terribly irresponsible of the president of the United States to start having rallies where people wear it as a badge of valor not to wear a mask.”

“He’s continued to urge states to reopen before they’re ready, drastically scaled down the coronavirus task force, is not ramping up the necessary testing and is now scheduling in-person campaign rallies,” Zac Petkanas, director for the campaign group Protect Our Care, told The Guardian last year. “All but making sure that tens of thousands needlessly die and remain out of work.”

Via Media Matters coverage of Fox News Primetime from 11/29/21:

Pete Hegseth: “As Omicron is being introduced and you hear people talking about it Lara, what’s your take on where we are and where we’re going?”

Logan: “Well, it’s very simple, Pete, right? You just have to look at Africa. They didn’t have the death rates from COVID that were predicted. And what is happening over time is that the entire response to COVID and everything we were told about it from the beginning, is being exposed. And it’s falling apart. The lies are coming apart.

“And really now, there’s no justification for putting people out of their jobs or forcing vaccine mandates for a disease that is very treatable. It’s cheap to treat. Medicines are available all over the world, and it has death rates that that compare very much to seasonal flu.

“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 Joseph Mengele, Dr. Joseph Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the second world war and in the concentration camps. And I’m talking about people all across the world are saying this because the response from COVID, what it has done to countries everywhere, what it has done to civil liberties, the suicide rates, the poverty – it has obliterated economies. The level of suffering that has been created because this disease is being seen in the cold light of day, i.e. the truth. And people see that there is no justification for what is being done. So, as they are being exposed and the control is slipping easy, lo and behold another variant surfaces and nobody should be surprised by that because there will be more variants until the end of time, and we will never be free of them.”

Logan, who hosts a program on Fox Nation ironically title Lara Logan Has No Agenda, doubled down on her analogy when called out by Twitter users, posting links to conspiracy websites like Natural News, and The Gateway Pundit.

The only lies that have been exposed from the beginning, are those spread by right-wing media pundits like Logan, a once respectable journalist who apparently has decided to abandon any integrity she may have once possessed, to propagate misinformation and conspiracy theories. If anyone is telling Logan that Dr. Fauci is like a Nazi war criminal who experimented on Jewish children, then they must be the fevered voices within her mind, a side effect of her sexual assault when a correspondent with CBS News.

In The News Last Week: Donald Trump Delivers Bizarre, Slur-Ridden Speech At Mar-A-Lago Donor Retreat – Was He Drunk, High, Or Simply Being Himself?

In The News Last Week: Donald Trump Delivers Bizarre, Slur-Ridden Speech At Mar-A-Lago Donor Retreat – Was He Drunk, High, Or Simply Being Himself?

Certain words and events have been changed for humorous effect.

Trump before his bizarre speech at Mar-a-Lago.

Speaking to a group of Republican donors at his Mar-A-Lago golf resort Saturday night, Donald Trump lambasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Looking as if he were about to fall asleep standing up, Trump said, “That bitch… I mean that Mitch McConnel, I’ll tell you, he’s one dumb son-of-a butthead, don’t you think?”

The crowd cheered wildly, hissing and booing in agreement.

Ever since McConnell had the testicles to criticize him for his role in the Capitol riot, which he had referred to as “a disgraceful dereliction of duty,” Trump’s panties had been wadded into a bunch.

McConnell had been one of the forty-three Republicans to vote Trump not guilty of the charge of inciting the attack on the Capitol.

“There’s no question, none really, that president Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day,” McConnell said back in February. “No question about it. I mean, look, they listened to Trump whine and cry like a two year-old about an election he lost fair and square. They listened to him babble about haunted voting machines, the evil spirit of Hugo Chavez, the evilest Jew in the world – George Soros – Antifa, Captain Crunch, and Tony The Tiger working with China, Joe Biden and the Democrats to steal the election. The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president. And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on earth.”

Despite his criticism, McConnell voted not guilty because he believed Trump was “Constitutionally not eligible for conviction” given the fact that he was no longer president.

“Do you know he had the balls to criticize me after the, uhh… the ahh… that… uhh… whatever it was at the Clapitol,” Trump continued, stuttering and slurring some of his words. It was obvious that he was either drunk, high, or medicated on something, but no one noticed, or seemed to care. All they cared about was Trump. All eyes present were adorably fixated on Trump.

“The riot by Antifa!?” some joker in the audience shouted, and everyone laughed, this time with more gusto.

“That’s right,” Trump said. “It was Antifa. It had nothing to do with me! It was Antifa, and Sleepy Joe prodly put ’em to it. Anyway, you know what he said? He said it was “a definition of duty.”

The crowd laughed again. Trump thought they were laughing at how stupid they believed McConnell was for blaming him for the riot. But they weren’t laughing at McConnell. They were laughing at Trump’s description of McConnell’s criticism – “description of duty.” To them it probably conjured images of bowel movements or something similar, hence the laughter.

“That’s right. That guy’s a real boozer. He should take up drinking instead. He sucks at being a Senatorial. I heard his wife once to clean my toilets. She suffered so greatly… marrying Mitch… not cleaning my toilets. Did he ever tell you that? No? Did I ever tell you that? No? I guess he’s ashamed to have people know his wife cleans crap for a living… and married Mitch. Well, I guess it’s true what Democrats say about that guy, that loser. He looks like a pencil-neck greek masquerading as a tuttle. To me he looks more like that weasel in that Foghorn Leghorn cartoom from Warmer Brothers.”

The crowd laughed uproariously, still blissfully unaware that he was drunk or high… or just not caring.

Speaking on Anthony Fauci he said, “Have you ever seen any- bloody so full of clap?”

“Mitch McConnel?!” another joker shouted, although it sounded like the same guy.

The crowd once again erupted into laughter.

“That’s right,” Trump said. “No one’s more full of crap than that… that… that Mitch the pencil-neck tuttle. Except Dr. Gouci. Fist he said not to wear a mask, then he said to wear a mask, then he said to go outside, then he said to don’t go outside, play social distancing media instead. Well, which is it Dr. Nouci I assed him. I never wrote a mask when I went outside and I was fine until I got sick, but I was OK, they gave me all kinds of drugs to make feel better, just like I do now. I felt like Superman in Christian Slater. I should have wore my Superman cape to show everyone how strong I was, don’t you think?”

“Yeah, Donald!” the joker shouted. “Ain’t no one stronger than you! Not Superman, not Batman, not Spiderman, not Iron Man, and not even me!”

Most of the crowd laughed again, like they hadn’t heard anything so funny in ages. One old woman cackled so hard her dentures flew from her mouth and landed in the hair of a woman sitting in front of her. No one noticed or seemed to care, especially the woman whose hair it was stuck in. Another old lady with a face like a donkey snorted so hard, snot exploded from her nostrils splattering several people in front of her. No one noticed or seemed to care. An old man laughed until he literally crapped himself, farting explosively as he defecated. Again, no one noticed or seemed to care.

“They made fun of me when I said the corona beer virus would be gone by Easter, and when I said you can mix belch with Kool-aid and drink it to get rid of the virus, they thought I was crazy. They laughed. But I was right. A lot of people did it and were cured. I guess I showed ’em, am I right?”

“That’s right Donald!” the joker shouted again. “No one knows more than you do! Not Mitch the tuttle, not Dr. Nouci, and not even me!”

Trump babbled on for nearly forty more minutes, about space aliens wanting to eat his brain, Mexicans being bad people who want to eat his brain, the Democrats and Sleepy Joe stealing the election through Dominion voting machines, Hugo Chavez, Antifa, George Soros, Tony The Tiger, Captain Crunch… and space aliens who wanted not only to steal the election, but eat his brain.

He also babbled about the vaccines he claimed he had been responsible for and said they should have been called Donaldcines. The media, other than Fox News, Newsmax and OANN, had no idea what the whole thing was about.

Was he drunk? Was he high? Or was he simply being himself? Your guess is as good as anyone’s guess.
