'Opposite of Hate' Author Sally Kohn Hates on Trump
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/12/2019 7:08:11 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Oh, the irony!

Liberal activist Sally Kohn is the author of "The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity." Amazon describes her as someone "learning how to talk respectfully with people whose views she disagrees with passionately . . . It was time, she decided, to look into the epidemic of hate all around us and learn how we can stop it."

And: "In The Opposite of Hate, Kohn talks to leading scientists and researchers, investigating the evolutionary and cultural roots of hate and how simple incivility can be a gateway to much worse."

But when she appeared on Ari Melber's MSNBC show this evening, Kohn proceeded to . . . hate on President Trump. True, she did it with a smile and a jovial air. But the substance was as hateful as that of your standard, enraged, social justice warrior.

Do liberals have no self-awareness? This woman writes a book about how we need to get away from hating our political opponents. She then goes on TV and proceeds to hate on Trump!

Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

She does look rather manly and I see on her wiki page that she has a “wife.”

For some reason, Sally always reminded me of “Lurch”. And what is this “WE” have to stop hating , Sally? Liberals can’t breath without hating.

ALL the hate starts with, and comes from the Left. All of it.

“This woman writes a book about how we need to get away from hating our political opponents. She then goes on TV and proceeds to hate on Trump!”

And that is why they need to synchronize it into a daily “Two Minute Hate”.
The afterward they can attempt to perform something productive?
Limited to Inner Party members only. Very exclusive; “Discriminating clientele”.

All nicely explained by Mr. Orwell.

“The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp.”

It’s not Trump they hate, it’s US.
He’s just in the way.

Germans in World War II thought of themselves as nice people too... Hating Jews didn’t ‘count’... same as ‘hating conservatives’ doesn’t count today.

“Liberals” are clueless about who they’ve become...

Her book is aimed at US, about how we need to be civil to Leftists.

Pinochet's approach was a more effective way to deal with subversive parasites.

Mr. Kohn seems very concerned about Trump’s success.

Her long face and features remind of Beto O’Rourke.
