Sally Kohn: Conservative Christians Treat Women No Better Than Islamists

October 13th, 2015 2:15 PM

Wonder if this latest lightbulb moment from Sally Kohn will win her another “Stupidest Analysis” award at next year’s Media Research Center Gala? CNN political commentator Sally Kohn set off a firestorm Oct. 10 on Twitter when she compared fundamentalist Islam’s treatment of women to Christianity’s treatment of women.

That didn’t sit well with conservatives on Twitter who called out the liberal commentator for her ridiculous and insulting comparisons. Katie Pavlich of Townhall wrote:

Ben Shapiro of Breitbart also stepped in:

Kohn then backpedaled on her ridiculous statements, attempting to make them sound more reasonable, but it didn’t work.

We can always rely on Kohn to say ridiculous things and genuinely believe them. That is one of the reasons Kohn was chosen for the Media Research Center’s Dishonors Award for “Stupidest Analysis” when she held up her hands up in the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” pose during a CNN segment last year. The false statement of Michael Brown putting his hands up before getting shot was disproven early on but Kohn, like many in the media, kept repeating it as gospel, regardless.

Maybe Kohn thinks if she keeps equating conservative Christians with Islamic radicals often enough, the rest of the media will jump on board too.
