Idiotic leftist responses to Charlie Hebdo #1

For complicated and fundamentally irrational reasons, the American left is determined to deny the obvious and pretend that Islam is a “religion of peace,” and if religion has anything to do with violence, why, all religions are equally bad.

Case in point: Sally Kohn, the former Fox News contributor now seen on CNN by a tiny fraction of the audience that once was treated to her defenses of the left.

On Twitter, she erected this straw man:

Twitchy collected some of the responses, pointing out that nobody is claiming that all Muslims are responsible.  The problem is that a nontrivial minority of Muslims do approve and even celebrate such actions.  But Sally wasn’t done.  She made this absurd claim:

For her source, she cited an article CNN published that conveniently ignored 9/11’s 3,000+ deaths, Fort Hood (“workplace violence,” dontcha know) and many other Islamic terror actions.

Is anyone persuaded?  Does CNN want to drive away viewers?  If so, it is succeeding.
