This time it comes from CNN’s Sally Kohn.
Kohn used to be at Fox News, and before that she was one of the ramrods at NY Occupy Wall Street. But apparently supervising protesters defecating on police cars and raping their fellow activists lost its adventure, and Sally managed to convince someone in the media that people would want to know what she thinks.
