PC out. EC in.

CNN commentator Sally Kohn is a leftist piece of work.  As such, her idiocy deserves to be exposed and mocked.  So here we go.

As I wrote earlier, Kohn appears to have no problem with sharia law.  A Jewish (at least technically) lesbian who sees no problem with sharia law is a fool.  And since her breathless tweet early this week about sharia, she’s continued to dig in with more ignorant tweets, such as her passionate question for Trump on Thursday as to whether or not he cares about misrepresenting 1.6 billion people.

There’s nothing like a lesbian Jew going to bat for a holy book that mandates world domination, with a special hatred for certain groups in particular, such as women, Jews, and homosexuals.  Sally, my dear, that would be you, you, and you.

But I digress.

After delving into her Islamophilia, I got curious just how foolish she was and discovered that her stupidity runs pretty deep.

A couple of years ago, Kohn gave a talk as part of the TED Talk series – you know, that ultra-pretentious elitist organization that promotes “ideas worth spreading” via curated talks in front of curated audiences.

Anyway, Kohn’s talk focused on how we should be less concerned with political correctness and more concerned with emotional correctness.  (This is emblematic of the kind of thing you get at a TED Talk, where ideas are put forth as exceptional and cutting-edge when in fact they are often trivial, forgettable, contrived, and pointless.)

The gist of her idea (such as it was) is that while many people are concerned with being politically correct (um, that would be leftists, not the rest of us), they ignore the importance of how their ideas are communicated.  “How” = “emotional correctness.”

The motivation to strive for emotional correctness, according to Kohn, seems to be founded on the idea that a lot of people don’t like leftists and that in order for their message to be heard, leftists need to pay attention to how they express themselves because their ideas have a better chance of being adopted if they’re expressed (emotionally) correctly.

(sigh and gag)

During the talk, Kohn shared stories about her tenure at Fox News, where she worked for a few years before being fired.  Although she disagreed with the views of her colleagues at Fox, she said the people at the network were incredibly nice, singling out Sean Hannity as a person who would be there for anyone in need.

Strangely, Kohn seemed to be making the case for how a lot of folks who aren’t leftists are inherently good people.  And she seems to think leftists can learn a thing or two from them with the ultimate goal of wooing more people to the left.  (Apparently, this is a hard lesson for her, as she interrupts and screeches at fellow panelists, here, because, you know, she is right and they are wrong and she is so angry and therefore has a right to be patronizing and snarky, while ranting and screaming, or here, where she also screams while denying the facts on the topic at hand, or here, where she steamrolls her way through political discourse.)

Oh dear, Sally.  It seems that “emotional correctness” is not as easy as it appears.

As an aside, if her theory had any merit, she should have been a test case during her tenure at Fox.  But she left the network as much of a leftist loon as when she arrived despite being surrounded by “emotionally correct” people with worldviews diametrically opposed to hers.

But never mind.  Her talk was brilliant, insightful, clever, and intriguing.  If it weren’t, it wouldn’t be TED! (sarc off)

Next up in the Sally-Kohn-as-poster-child-for-leftist-lunacy, we have a video montage featured on her website titled “The Funny Cut.”  It opens with her referring to former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich as “peach pit.”  (But hey, don’t worry.  She said it so affectionately that surely she meant no disrespect.)

After the brief clip of her exchange with Gingrich, the montage cuts to a panel of guests on a Comedy Central episode from a few months ago where the moderator (someone named Larry Wilmore, whose show, by the way, has just been canceled) presents Kohn with the following scenario: “You’re standing at a quarry with Antonin Scalia.  It’s the middle of the night.  You’ve both been drinking.  No one is around.”  (Kohn, who makes a lot of faces that I’m guessing she thinks are adorable, makes some of her faces.)

The lead up to the question continues: “And he’s, like, 78.  He’s had a full life, right?  Plus, who knows what’s going to happen in 2016?  Maybe a Republican gets in office, and they’re going to choose another Supreme Court justice.  If you push him over the edge, then the Democrat president can appoint—”

He can’t finish the question as hysterical laughter erupts among his guests and the sheeple audience.

He finally composes himself to complete the question: “—another justice.  What do you do?”

Kohn, smiling, makes note of the fact that Wilmore had just asked if she would commit murder and says she could not commit murder because it would be immoral and she’s part of a moral movement.


The morality of communists has been born out time and again throughout human history.  But hey, it may not be so bad when the goons dragging people off to gulags are emotionally correct about it and very nice.
