Petition: Send CNN's Sally Kohn to live in Shariah-based country to teach right-wing a lesson

CNN’s Sally Kohn is being trolled in epic fashion over a Tweet she sent out trying to criticize Donald Trump’s position on Shariah law not being compatible with the US constitution:

A sensitive and compassionate person named Jon Lo decided to hold Ms. Kohn up to her own rhetoric. He began a petition suggesting that Kohn be an example to the hate-mongers on the right. The petition says CNN should send Kohn to a Sharia law based country without any bodyguards so she can be living proof of what beautiful and tolerant societies they are:

A lot of right-wing nazi bigots are saying Sally Kohn is an idiot for showing support for Sharia Law, especially considering that she is a gay woman. As progressives, we know both Sharia Law and Muslims are tolerant and very LGBTQ friendly.

In order to show how LGBTQ friendly the Sharia, and it’s practitioners, are, Sally Kohn should spend a week’s holiday proudly displaying her homosexuality in Raqqa/Riyadh or any other place where Sharia is the law of the land, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro LGBTQ these practitioners of Sharia Law are.

Oh yeah… did we forget to mention?  Sally Kohn is lesbian and an outspoken champion of LGBT rights.  Those rights and Kohn’s very way of life are not necessarily congruent with the Shariah-based culture she seems to glorify for the sake of hammering Trump.

The brilliant sarcasm embedded in the petition for Kohn to go full Shariah is revealed further in a brilliant column by Andrew McCarthy who supports Trump’s argument for an ideological test for new immigrants to America. McCarthy paints an imaginary scenario where a Syrian alien is questioned by an immigration official about whether he supported the US constitution:

Well, sure, except that I believe the government should be overseen by a caliph, who must be Muslim and male, and who must rule in accordance with Islamic law, which no man-made law may contradict. None of this ‘We the People’ stuff; Allah is the sovereign. Non-Muslims should not be required to convert to Islam, of course, but they must submit to the authority of Islamic law — which requires them to live in the second-class status of dhimmitude and to pay a poll tax for that privilege.”

“I also believe women must be subservient to men, and that men are permitted to beat their wives if they are disobedient — especially if they refuse sex, in which they must engage on demand. There is no such thing as marital rape, and proving non-marital rape requires testimony from four male witnesses. Outside the home, a woman should cover herself in drab from head to toe. A woman’s testimony in court should be worth only half of a man’s, and her inheritance rights similarly discounted. Men should be able to marry up to four women — women, however, are limited to marrying one man.”

And it goes on and on…  concluding with a brilliant response from the pretend immigration official:  “Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on a second. That’s not supporting the Constitution. That would be destroying the Constitution.”

And that, of course, is the whole point. People like Kohn who wrap themselves in the protection of the constitution while celebrating Shariah Law are writing their own suicide fatwa. Add to that irony the fact that Kohn was the first to condemn Christians  for their “hate” after the Islamic terror attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando last June.

Kohn has responded to the petition via Twitter:

That last Tweet shows her precious frustration that conservatives who may have had reservations about the redefinition of marriage by popular vote or by judicial fiat seem to be outraged over Kohn’s naive take on Shariah. Because, you know, preventing same-sex marriage is the same as hurtling someone off a roof top to their death because they’re gay.

As of Monday morning, the petition has over 7,000 signatures.
