Sally Kohn is a progressive pundit on CNN who frequently says dumb things on Twitter. She is also often critical of Donald Trump, who has reached out to the LGBT community like no other Republican before him.
Kohn recently made a supportive comment about Sharia law as a dig at Trump so now people want her to put her life where her mouth is.
The Daily Caller reported:
Petition: Send Sally Kohn To A Country That Practices Sharia Law WITHOUT Bodyguards
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!!”
Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!

The petition can be seen here and reads as follows:
Spend one week in a country where Sharia is the law for LGBTQ-rights (without bodyguards)
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.
Will Sally do it and prove to America how accepting Sharia communities really are?
We won’t hold our breath.
