It’s not a good idea to Tweet ugly Tweets to Donald Trump.
Case in point:
After a CNN commentator sent out an idiotic tweet to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump last week about supporting Sharia Muslims, the Internet backlash prompted a petition through Change.org.
The political commentator, Sally Kohn, tweeted at Donald Trump the following:
Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!
— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) August 16, 2016
Clearly with no understanding of how Sharia law works, Kohn’s tweet is brainless. Most Sharia law countries, like Saudi Arabia, ban women from driving, require women to wear a hijab that covers everything but the eyes and hands, and persecute gays and lesbians.
Thus, the internet’s sarcastic response was the following petition below:
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.
As of now, there have been over 7,000 signatures to send the CNN pundit to Raqqa, the anti-gay ISIS headquarters, or another Sharia country. The new goal is to reach 7,500 signatures. You can sign the petition here. Below are more dumbfounded reactions to Kohn’s progressive hypocrisy:
