Newsmax bans Lara Logan over QAnon-inspired tirade about drinking children’s blood

  • Lara Logan, a war correspondent-turned-conspiracy theorist, addressed a QAnon-inspired tirade on Newsmax.
  • She accused world leaders of feeding on the blood of children and making people eat insects.
  • Newsmax said in a statement that it had “no plans to interview her again.”

Right-wing news outlet Newsmax has cut ties with former war correspondent Lara Logan after she aired a bizarre QAnon-inspired tirade, the company said in a statement.

The Guardian reported that Logan Newsmax host Eric Bolling said world leaders are “feeding on the blood of children,” referring to the blood libel conspiracy theory spreading in QAnon circles.

QAnon is a baseless far-right conspiracy theory that claims former President Donald Trump is secretly fighting a “deep state” cabal of satanic pedophiles and cannibals.

During her on-air rant, The Hill reported that Logan also said, “God believes in sovereignty and national identity and the sanctity of the family and all the things that we’ve lived with since the beginning of time. And he knows that Open Borders is Satan’s way of taking control of the world through all these people who are his henchmen and his servants.

“And they may think they’re going to become gods. That’s what they tell us. You know, those who want us to eat bugs, cockroaches and that while eating children’s blood? These are the people, right ? You won’t win.”

Newsmax said in a statement to The Hill on Friday it “strongly condemns Lara Logan’s reprehensible statements.”

The news outlet said it had “no plans to interview her again.”

Logan, 51, who was once chief foreign affairs correspondent at CBS News, left the network after her 2012 report on the Benghazi attack was withdrawn after an internal review found key elements of the story untrue.

Since then, Logan has pushed right-wing conspiracy theories, including comparing Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s foremost infectious disease expert, with notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele.

She has also linked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to “satanic, occult” practices, while praising Russian President Vladimir Putin and baselessly claiming that Charles Darwin was employed by the Jewish Rothschild banking family to develop his theory of evolution.
