Lara Logan, Sh*tcanned By Fox News, Emerges From Cocoon As Full-Fledged Antisemitic Loon

International Jewry is why your daughter dresses slutty, also too.

Disgraced former "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan was shitcanned by Fox News and its streaming service, Fox Nation, Logan told a wingnut livestream Monday. Logan hadn't appeared on either the cable channel or the streaming platform since last November, when she proclaimed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was just like the notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, who performed monstrous medical experiments on Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz. (We should note that Fox's far more popular host Tucker Carlson, who said the same week that Fauci was exactly like fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, still has his job.)

As Rolling Stone reports, Logan told the "Stand Up America With Major General Paul Vallely" show (how do they come up with these titles?), "I was dumped by Fox. That’s what happened to me.”

We're guessing something else may also have happened to Logan, who over the years has become more and more unhinged in her embrace of rightwing conspiracy theories. More recently, as Media Matters also reported on Monday, Logan has veered out of mainstream, "respectable" wingnut fantasies like Trump's Big Lie or anti-vaccine panic, and has graduated to open antisemitism, combining extremely crude antisemitic slurs with a bunch of crazy conspiracy bullshit.

QAnon People Devastated To Discover How Search Engines Work

They thought DuckDuckGo didn't do site rankings, never realizing that made no sense.

This week, DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg announced on Twitter that he opposes the Russian invasion of Ukraine and that "[a]t DuckDuckGo, we've been rolling out search updates that down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation."

Most people would consider that a good thing. Not having disinformation and blatant propaganda pop up when searching for information on current events is certainly convenient.

Sad Story: Lady We've Never Heard Of 'Canceled' Just For Being Terrible

How does this keep happening?

If there is one surefire way to get attention these days, it is to write an article in a major publication read the world over about how you were "canceled." Especially if not that many people even know who you are.

I did not know who Gillian Philip was until yesterday, when I read a Daily Mail article she wrote about how she lost her career as a ghostwriter of YA books about magic dogs or something just for saying that trans people shouldn't be allowed to exist. And how is that fair?

She writes:

The first sign of trouble was the unusually high number of new Twitter notifications that had pinged overnight on my mobile phone.

As a successful author with an established social media profile, I’m used to a steady stream of messages, but this ran to hundreds. And the tone of them was different – horribly so. [...]

It was far from a pleasant start to my day but, if I’m honest, I had been expecting at least some negative reaction.

The reason? I had dared to offer support on Twitter for J.K. Rowling’s stand against allowing transgender people to self-identify as male or female.

Oh? Is that all? Just a casual condemnation of a person's right to exist and assert their own identity? Okay then.

Christian Crowdfunding Site Raising Money For 'Freedom Convoy' Hacked By Disney Fans

Now we know all of their secrets.

In the last few weeks, anti-vaxxers have raised $8 million for the so-called "Freedom Convoy" — first on GoFundMe and now on GiveSendGo, the Christian crowdfunding site popular among right-wing extremists and neo-Nazis. It's not clear what's being done with the money given that these (mother)truckers showed up at an Ottawa soup kitchen to assault and harass workers, scream racial slurs at security guards and demand to be fed.

Around 10pm Sunday night, Daily Dot reporter Mikael Thalen reported on Twitter that GiveSendGo had been frozen and hacked — and initially redirected to the url GiveSendGone.wtf, which featured a picture from the Disney movie Frozen, with the following text superimposed over it.
