Sally Kohn appoints herself Chief of Speech Police

It takes a special kind of stupid, yes, I know stupid is a harsh word, but in this case it applies, to be Sally Kohn, who truly believes that silencing certain opinions is somehow diversity!

At a University of Missouri free speech symposium, CNN commentator Sally Kohn said conservatives fighting for free speech on college campuses are afraid of multiculturalism.

Kohn added that because conservatives can no longer criticize multiculturalism while remaining socially acceptable, they have taken on the campus speech fight because it is a way to “attack diverse principles.”

When Kirsten Powers countered Kohn with reason, and facts, Kohn went full blown propagandist

Powers countered by citing examples of liberal bias on college campuses, such as the uproar that is often encountered by both liberal and conservative students who diverge from the liberal orthodoxy, and specifically mentioned Christina Hoff Sommers, an American Enterprise Institute scholar whosespeech at Oberlin College was disrupted by numerous protesters, some of whom set up a makeshift “safe space.”

Powers also cited the case of a feminist professor at the University of California-Santa Barbara attacking a pro-life demonstrator because she felt threatened by the display, as well as that of a libertarian Muslim student at the University of Michigan whose satirical newspaper article led to demands for his firing because people felt “unsafe.”

Kohn retorted that both her and Powers’ white, upper-middle-class upbringings cloud their vision on the issue, claiming that speech that may not be threatening to them may nonetheless be threatening to someone else.

“Feelings are valid,” she mused. “I’m never going to argue with people’s feelings.”

  1. Kohn is in the same category with an individual (Progressive) who told me a few months back that the only reason that I disapproved of freeloaders getting their paws on Obama phones was because I “hate Obama.”

    That conversation and our friendship went downhill really fast especially after unable to contain myself, I reminded this person that she had in her pocketbook an I-Phone so why again did she need an Obama phone?

    It is impossible to have a conversation with these people.
