CNN’s ‘Butch Lesbian’ Sally Kohn Publicly Hopes Her Daughter Becomes Gay

Facebook/Sally Kohn

According to a Washington Post editorial she wrote recently, CNN contributor Sally Kohn — who refers to herself as a “butch lesbian” — explained that exposing her homosexuality to her 6-year-old daughter is not enough.

“I’m gay,” she asserted, “and I want my kid to be gay, too.”

She went on to explain her predilection by comparing her sexual proclivity to any trait a parent might want to pass down to their offspring.

“More often than not,” she wrote, “we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.”

As it stands, however, Kohn lamented the fact that the girl she is raising with her partner, Sarah Hansen, is not exhibiting same-sex attraction.

“Time will tell,” she explained, “it doesn’t look like my 6-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy. It seems early to me, but I’m trying to be supportive.”

She acknowledged that another parent at her daughter’s school pointed out an unpleasant truth in relation to the girl’s infatuation with a particular boy.

“Bet it wouldn’t bother you so much if her crush was on a girl,” Kohn quoted the other parent — an allegation she couldn’t deny.

“She was right,” Kohn admitted, adding that she is a “slightly overbearing pro-gay mom.”

Even during playtime, she said, her bias comes through.

“When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad,” she wrote, “we gently remind her that they could be a dad and a dad. Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice.”

Do you think Sally Kohn should be pressuring her daughter to become gay? Sound off in the comments section below.

BREAKING: Shocking New UN Report Reveals Even More Barbaric ISIS Brutality To Children

ISIS stolen planes

Even as President Obama tries to make an argument of moral relevance in equating ISIS atrocities with the Inquisition — even as his administration seems determined not to name radical Islamists as the enemy of Western civilization — a new report identifies shocking new acts of barbarism being committed by terrorists fighting for the Islamic State.

CNN provides details of what a new United Nations investigation has found as ISIS intensifies its campaign of terror in Iraq and Syria. The focus of this UN report is the jihadists’ cruel and inhumane use of children:

In reference to Iraq, at least, the U.N. report found that the terrorist group is resorting more and more to brutal acts such as enslaving, raping, beheading, crucifying and burying people alive. Some of those affected are children.

The report claims that children as young as 8 years old are being given guns and trained to become soldiers. Others have explosives strapped to their bodies and are being sent out as human bombs.

A member of the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, Renate Winter, describes the unspeakable atrocity of turning young innocents into suicide bombers.

“We have had reports of children, especially children that are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding what has happened or what they have to expect.”

The CNN report makes a very interesting observation, especially in light of the outrage over President Obama’s Prayer Breakfast remarks in which he compared current day Islamic extremism with the long-ago crusades.

Says CNN, “ISIS has in the past attempted to justify atrocities — including the enslaving, raping and selling of captives — as being done in God’s name.”

Curiously, a report on The Daily Beast says ISIS atrocities are being inflicted not only on infidels and non-believers. In fact, says the post, there’s widespread “internal bloodletting” among the many factions of the Islamic State.

The propagandists of the putative Islamic State would have you believe it is just one big happy family, righteously slaughtering apostates, enslaving women (literally), beheading and burning alive its prisoners, all in the name of God.

But quarrels over a range of issues—from divvying up of the spoils of war to competition over women and, yes, the handling of foreign hostages—point to a lot of trouble beneath the surface of this terror army.

For Obama And His Keystone Cops, This New Pipeline Poll Could Be A Game Changer

Twitter

Buoyed by outspoken environmentalists, climate change doomsayers, and liberal lawmakers, President Obama has repeatedly threatened to veto any bill that Congress might send him to authorize the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

The House of Representatives has overwhelmingly approved a measure to move forward with the controversial pipeline project. That legislation is now in the Senate, where its fate could be an early test of GOP leader Mitch McConnell’s ability to assemble a bipartisan coalition big enough to override a presidential veto.

Thehill.com reports that contentious debate over the measure could begin on the Senate floor as early as next week.

Democrats are aiming to use the amendment process to force Republicans into a number of tough votes, including on whether to back an amendment that states man-made climate change is happening.

Asked if the Republican caucus was ready to take that vote, McConnell said, “Yeah!”

It will be interesting to see if the results of a brand new poll on the pipeline have any influence in that Senate debate, possibly giving pro-pipeline Republicans a boost in their head-to-head with Obama.

The CNN/ORC poll whose findings were released today shows that the percentage of Americans who support the Keystone project is double the percentage who oppose the construction of the long-delayed oil pipeline.

“The 1,179-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline is backed by 57% of the 1,011 Americans surveyed on Dec. 18-21. Just 28% oppose it, while 15% say they are unsure.”

CNN notes that the measure up for debate in the Senate would end the State Department’s six-year review of the project and give the green light to its immediate construction.

As Western Journalism has reported, proponents of the international oil pipeline cite its potential for extensive job creation and increased energy independence for Americans.

What These CNN Show Hosts Just Did On Set Blew Up The Twitterverse In A Massive Way

CNN arrows

In Washington, DC and Manhattan over the weekend, thousands of people took to the streets to march in protest of police actions and grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Missouri and New York City.

And in the news studios of CNN, four women discussing the protests and their purpose assumed a pose that caused quite a stir when one of the show hosts sent it out on twitter.

As reported at mediaite.com, Margaret Hoover, Sally Kohn, Sunny Hostin and Mel Robbins saw fit to insert themselves and their anti-police opinions into the news as they showed solidarity with the protestors they were supposedly covering.

Three of the women on the CNN set raised their hands in the now familiar “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture, while the fourth held up a sign that read “I can’t breathe,” referring to the New York incident in which Eric Garner died while in police custody.

Not long after the picture was shared on social media by one of the four, twitter exploded with reaction, much of it negative…leading one of the CNN anchors to apologize:

CNN President Jeff Zucker Insists HLN Is “Not For Sale”

9371641922_c0f444c5c3_k

Mediabistro reports that HLN held an all-staff meeting Wednesday in Atlanta to discuss the future of the troubled network. The meeting was led by HLN general manager Albie Hecht, with CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker also present.

Jennifer Westhoven, who covers the economy, business, and money for HLN, tweeted out Zucker’s statement about the network.

The tweet was in reference to this past summer’s negotiations with VICE media about a partnership that would have largely turned control of HLN programming over to VICE. Those talks ended when the two sides couldn’t agree on VICE’s valuation.

Even though the talks ended months ago, VICE founder Shane Smith apparently still has his eyes on the network, telling Jeff Jarvis at the Paley Media Council that HLN is a “distressed media asset,” and that VICE could do a better job with it than the current management.

Zucker reacted angrily to Smith’s comments, calling him an a*****e, but Smith is right. HLN’s ratings have plunged, with the network firmly lodged in a distant fourth place in the cable-news ratings.

With VICE flush with investor cash, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them take another run at HLN. Even though Zucker says the network isn’t for sale, it’s not entirely his decision to make.
