Sally Kohn: How can Israel supporters argue the IDF’s violence is justified, but Hamas’ isn’t?

posted at 10:01 pm on July 22, 2014 by Guy Benson

I now present to you my Twitter exchange with progressive pundit Sally Kohn,* sans commentary:

Her rebuttal, as of this writing? Crickets.  Maybe she’ll eventually enlighten us with additional insights into the moral pillars of her faith.  And maybe those who read the above conversation will consider the state of Ms. Kohn’s moral compass when judging her counsel on other matters.

 

*Disclosure: I’ve met Sally on a number of occasions and have found her to be funny and delightful.  She’s dead wrong about virtually everything, though, and this level of sophistic “analysis” belies a disappointing intellectual shallowness that I struggle to reconcile with her in-person charm.  Oh well.

Nope, sorry Guy, I don’t CARE if Sally Kohn is a delightful lady. If she is a part of the unofficial Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between the International Left and the Islamic Fascist movement, she is your enemy and mine.

Posing a false moral equivalency between a democratic state such as Israel that is trying to defend itself and a gang of eliminationist Arab Nazis is a cute rhetorical trick, but under no circumstances should one call it an honest attempt at debate.

Israel is using weapons to protect her citizens.

The palestinian terrorists are using their own people to protect their weapons.

Israel has the ‘moral authority’ to defend herself – period – and no amount of blathering from anti-Israel nuts like Albright, Kerry, obama, obama’s state-run media, et al, is going to change that

Well, GB, your charm meter is far more expansive than mine. Then again, mine has a two-dimensional aspect to it, the other factor being “shallowness.” The more shallow, the less charm, if you get my drift.

CW20 on July 22, 2014 at 10:19 PM

When you read such statements from flaming liberals then you must just assume that there is no rebuttal. Their original statement is so absurd that to dignify it with logic is silly. To even engage them on their level is to lose. Think of their logic on the border crisis. They will not address the long term costs to our nation or to the security of it but they will immediately ask you how you can allow “Innocent” children to suffer and be deported to their possible deaths. There is no way to talk directly to them on any issue that they are allowed to emotionalize. Think how simple the word retaliation is. When someone tries to kill you and your family you retaliate. If you end up using more force than they did then according to liberals you are just as guilty as the perpetrator.

She thought you were enlightened enough to be fully up to speed on the rape culture pandemic in colleges and universities.

Not to mention that “enlightened” women do NOT fight off their rapists!

They just wait a few days to see whether having sex with a guy is considered a positive or a negative by their feminist collective …

… before deciding to file or not to file a rape accusation with the college administration.

That is beyond irrelevant. Why would you even bring this up. I’m sure Hitler was funny adn delightful lots of the time, too. He probably even cracked jokes as he was planning the Jewish extermination.

Sally Cohn is an idiot and an ugly moron. I find nothing delightful, which squares with the way she thinks about herself, since her self-hate is so obvious and all-encompassing. She knows that she’s a lowlife POS and she wants to bring everything familiar down so that the world around her can be as ugly and pain-filled as her demented self.

You know, the problem with holding the moral high ground (or at least the modern concept of it) is that you always restrict yourself from actually solving anything. This is particularly true when dealing with a group like Hamas that uses civilians as a weapon of war. They constantly attack and harass until there target gives in. To attack such groups the target must attack civilians.

It never ends.

Sooner or later they will eventually win that conflict unless their target is willing to go medieval.

We are teaching a whole new generation of our youngsters that anything violent must be BAD, and avoided at all costs.
.
I submit to you that :

Dynamite used in a quarry, or on a construction site is VIOLENT.

Shooting a firearm of any kind, at any time is VIOLENT.

Athletic sports of all kinds are VIOLENT.

Butcher shops are VIOLENT.

Police arresting a resisting suspect will get VIOLENT.

A steam locomotive in motion is VIOLENT.

An internal-combustion engine running is VIOLENT.

An electrical power generating plant is VIOLENT.

Power tools of all kinds are VIOLENT.

Simply raising your voice in anger can be considered VIOLENT.

Where should I stop with this ?

Dear Ms. Kohn:

The answer is rather simple: One side attempts to avoid killing innocents, while the other commits murder-by-proxy.

Here’s a question back to you: What makes your opinions more valuable or valid than anyone elses? If – as you assume – all violence is morally equivalent, then all opinions are too which means you should not be paid to give yours unless we are all paid.

Think about it and . . .

BuckeyeSam on July 22, 2014 at 10:48 PM

Dear Ms. Kohn,

As a reminder, Hamas only puts their civilians in harm’s way because of persons like yourself who then blame Israel for the civilian deaths. Morally, you are more responsible for their deaths than Israel. Israel is defending itself. You are encouraging a terrorist government to have its civilians killed for public relations purposes by propogandizing the result. The blood of the Palestinian civilians used as human shields by Hamas is on your hands, Ms. Kohn. Failure to condemn Hamas for using their civilians as human shields while blaming Israel for their deaths encourages Hamas to continue to use their civilians on human shields.

I hope this wasn’t too difficult for you to understand.

Remember every time you blame Israel for Palestinian human shield deaths, you are encouraging more Palestinian human shield deaths. I hope you think it’s worth it to continue to promote your notariety at the expense of innocent lives.

How can same people who believe Hamas violence justifies Israeli violence then disagree that Israeli violence justifies Hamas violence?

Easy…

(1) Israel believes in equality of women and men before the law.
(2) Israel does not think the Lions Club, Rotary Club, Masons, etc. are part of some international conspiracy to rule the planet.
(3) Israel does not have a stated goal of conquering the planet and submitting all mankind to their laws and religion.

etc., etc., to many to count…

Sally is a moron.

RonRon on July 22, 2014 at 10:58 PM

Damn, I was going to throw some more insults at Sally, but
I just got a text from some Australian Female Senator…

ToddPA on July 22, 2014 at 10:35 PM

If you’re “hung” and rich enough for make sure she’s at least a 34-DD.

bw222 on July 22, 2014 at 10:59 PM

Sally is a moron.

RonRon on July 22, 2014 at 10:58 PM

What does it say about Guy Benson that he finds her delightful and funny?

gryphon202 on July 22, 2014 at 10:59 PM

1. That picture looks like a young Ben Affleck
2. The palestinians are terrorists squatters and Israel has displayed too much patience with them

I think her “faith” has something to do with sacrificing goats to some moron with horns in hopes of becoming slightly less stupid and ugly.

It isn’t working.

Diluculo on July 22, 2014 at 10:49 PM

Give it time, but alas ugly is easier to fix than stupid. She’ll be lucky to get at least one.

Why are liberals always defending jihadist and Muslims? Aren’t these the people that have the true war on women?

rich8450 on July 22, 2014 at 11:04 PM

er was a cofounder, I believe, of the Liberty Unyielding blog. Check ‘em out there if you enjoyed the old Green Room contributors here. gryphon202 on July 22, 2014 at 10:53 PM

I do read there.

That gal is smart as all get out. No cheesy twitter alpha-male ~vs~ whatever slapfests.

Takes me a long time to read and digest J.E’s posts. They are intense.

This?

Not so much. Not much intel analysis going on at a gathering with Guy and Sally, though.

wolly4321 on July 22, 2014 at 11:07 PM

found her to be funny and delightful.

Nothing I see here to ever make me think that about her. Mental and emotional dysfunction is all that is clearly evident in this wanting human being.

wolly4321 on July 22, 2014 at 11:07 PM

Not much “intelligence” to be analyzed, if you catch my drift.

/heh

gryphon202 on July 22, 2014 at 11:12 PM

Why does anyone give a shit what Sally Kohn thinks about anything?

ConstantineXI on July 22, 2014 at 11:14 PM

So Sally Kohn is saying the US should have completely stayed out of WW2, even after Pearl Harbor?

malclave on July 22, 2014 at 11:20 PM

I believe we should stop throwing asparagus at Guy Benson. He has a part to play in advancing the conservative cause in a Progressive world media dominated culture. I’ve admired his and Mary Katherine Ham’s wit and wisdom on the young guns portion of Reynolds radio show.
We should not allow the hate the left feels and encourages in their following to become ours. Look to the revolutionary and civil wars.

Gebirgsjager on July 22, 2014 at 11:21 PM

I’m sorry — when you harbor this kind of moral vapidity, it’s not the “intellectual” that’s shallow…it’s the “in person charm” that is shallow and has no depth.

This kind of person should be treated no differently than any other thug who would side with evil, and take away the liberties of good people…even stand by while good people are killed by evil people.

There is nothing there to like. There is nothing there to find delightful or charming.

This sort of person is dangerous for precisely these reasons.

EastofEden on July 22, 2014 at 11:21 PM

Sally’s favorite song is “A Boy Named Sue”

Doc Holliday on July 22, 2014 at 10:03 PM

Yeah, but the Phister Sister’s cover.
Not Johnny Cash’s original cut.

soundingboard on July 22, 2014 at 11:22 PM

Hamas puts innocent people in harms way and Israel is wrong??
