A Change.org petition to send left-wing talking head and CNN political commentator Sally Kohn to a country which practices Sharia law for a week without bodyguards has begun to pick up steam.
Earlier this week, Kohn faced strong backlash after she tweeted, “Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!” (RELATED: Sally Kohn Got Internet Murdered For Posting This Tweet, Her Stupidest To Date)
Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!
— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) August 16, 2016
In a response this change.org petition was launched with the following explanation:
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.
At time of publication, the day-old petition has well over 700 signatures, well on its way to reaching the goal of 1000. (RELATED: ISIS: Here Are The Six Reasons We Hate YOU)
Raqqa is the headquarters of ISIS, the notoriously anti-gay, Sharia law-abiding terrorist organization. And Riyadh is the capital of Saudi Arabia, a country where Wahabism, a strict form of Sharia, is practiced.
Saudi Arabia bans women from driving, requires women to wear a hijab that covers everything but the eyes and hands. Furthermore, gays are persecuted.
At 6:36 p.m. EST, there have been over 1,800 signatures with a new goal of 2,500 signatures.
