After comparing Dr. Anthony Fauci to Nazi war criminal Josef Mengele, and receiving widespread criticism from Jewish groups and the Auschwitz Museum, Fox Nation Host Lara Logan just digging deep.
On Wednesday, the frustrated investigative reporter criticized her, posting links to conspiracy websites claiming HIV was “totally fake” while ramping up a tweet attacking the Auschwitz Museum for criticizing Logan .
The challenge began earlier this week when Logan announced in an appearance Monday night on Fox News that the White House was overusing the super-mutant variant of Omicron, the nation’s top infectious disease expert. teamed up with Mengele, a Nazi doctor dubbed the “Angel of Death” to experiment medically on Jewish prisoners in the Auschwitz death camp.
“What you see in Dr. Fauci — this is what people tell me: that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele,” she said, adding: “And I’m talking about how people all over the world are saying this, because of the response from COVID, what it has done to countries. everywhere, what it did to civil liberties, suicide rates, poverty, it wiped out the economy. “
Logan, who in recent years has become a far-right provocateur, has caused backlash from Jewish organizations and the Holocaust . memorial. The Anti-Defamation League condemned the former CBS News reporter for “making disparaging and offensive analogies” while the American Jewish Committee called her comments “absolutely despicable”. tiger” and called for a public apology. “It is disrespectful to the victim and a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decline,” the Auschwitz Museum tweeted Monday night.
Logan, instead of apologizing or rebutting his comparison, decided to double down. With the aim of targeting Fauci for his research work in the early days of the AIDS pandemic, Logan shared a series of articles showing that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases had harmed many people. than benefit.
Some of the links she posts on Twitter are to far-right conspiracy websites, such as The Gateway Pundit. As Christian Vanderbrouk of The Bulwark Note, Logan also links to websites that sell outrageous theories that HIV is “completely fake” and obsess about HIV. Freemasonry. (One of these tweets is now pinned to the top her Twitter timeline.)
In addition to turning to Internet crazes to prove herself right on Fauci, she amplified attacks on Holocaust memorial groups to her 197,000 Twitter followers simply for denouncing the German analogy. her commune. (And during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, no less.)
“Shame on the Auschwitz Museum for embarrassing Lara Logan for sharing that Jews like me believe Fauci is a modern day Mengele,” reads the tweet prompted by Logan.
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
After this article was published, the Auschwitz Museum announced that Logan even locked their official Twitter account.
Both the ADL and the American Jewish Committee criticized Fox News for their continued silence over their star’s extremist rhetoric, especially when Logan doubled down on her comments.
“It’s not surprising that neither Logan nor Fox News have apologized for the extremely offensive remarks Logan made,” he said. ADL spokesman Jake Hyman said in a statement to CNN on Wednesday. “Logan and the network appear to be unashamed and unrepentant. Equally disturbing, but also unsurprising, Logan will double down on Twitter this morning. “
Meanwhile, the director of the American Jewish Committee Against Anti-Semitism, told CNN it was “disturbing” that Logan did not apologize and dig into her “disgusting comparisons”. him, adding that “Fox’s silence was jarring.”
After achieving a solid reputation as an award-winning investigative reporter for CBS News throughout the 2000s, Logan’s credibility inflicted a serious blow in 2013 after her bombshell story in Benghazi in 60 Minutes was completely exposed. Apologizing for the inaccuracies in the broadcast, she was later forced to take a long break from competition. She will eventually leave the network in 2018.
After leaving CBS, Logan soon become a right-wing cause célèbre when she became a fierce critic of the mainstream media. She eventually landed on Fox News in 2020, hosting her own show on the network’s Fox Nation streaming service.
Since then, she’s pushed further to the edge, regularly garnering attention for delivering conspiratorial, not conspiratorial compliments. The girl has reliably pushed obvious hoaxes about leftist activists under the guise of news coverage, falsely asserting that Sweden is “not vaccinated”NS,” incorrect statement that the COVID-19 vaccine is not “really a vaccine” and warned Fox viewers that Haitian migrants can act as a ‘viral bomb’ on the United States.
