Sally Kohn is an economic illiterate

Sally Kohn is an economic illiterate

How is it Sally Kohn managed to get a reputation of being intelligent?

Because it certainly isn’t a reputation Sally has earned.

This morning we learned that last week another six million unemployment claims have been added to the already ten million from the previous two weeks.  This mandatory, government-imposed shutdown of our economy is destroying jobs, killing small businesses and creating an economic calamity that will only get worse the longer it continues.

But how did Sally Kohn react to this news?

Well, stupidly.

I imagine that anyone whose small business is about to go under just loves hearing Sally Kohn tell them it’s their choice.

Yup.  You CHOSE to watch your livelihood fail.  Nobody FORCED you*!

[*Except your mayor and your governor who deemed that your business was non-essential, that is.]

You’re watching your business go under just to “mask exploitation of workers” says the wretched, awful human being named Sally Kohn.

Sally knows nothing about how businesses work.

Does she think that small business owners have a never-ending gob-stopper of cash on hand to keep paying employees who are being ordered to stay home?

Clearly Sally Kohn has never owned a small business. She’s never had to make a payroll. Why should she? She’s a cable news pundit and she’s still getting paid.

Why is it always the so-called smart people whose paychecks are safe that smugly lecture those whose livelihoods are in the crapper?

Sally Kohn has no idea how much time, investment, effort and care goes into starting a business.  She’s never stared at a balance sheet and worried if she’ll have the revenues to meet expenses.

Sally isn’t spending every night of this pandemic lying awake in the dark worrying about losing everything you spent years building because of mandated “stay at home” orders.  

A business needs capital coming in to survive.  You don’t need an MBA to understand this.  Anybody with half a brain understands that.

Yet Sally Kohn doesn’t.

The reason there is no capital coming in is because of mandated shutdown orders imposed on us by governors.  For Sally, I’ll point out that if it’s mandated, it is forced.

In fact, the mayor of Los Angeles is urging residents to call the police and report any non-essential business that does not comply with his draconian orders. In other words, he is enforcing the mandate by use of snitches whom he will reward for snitching.

There is no freaking CHOICE here, Sally, you utterly stupid fool.

For her to suggest that small business owners (who up until a few weeks ago employed the vast majority of Americans) are just cavalierly, but CHOICE screwing their employees out of a job isn’t just insulting; it shows a callous lack of understanding — not to mention a heaping helping of smug ignorance.

I told you when the skyrocketing unemployment claims first began that Jesse Kelly is sharing tweets from small business owners who have no choice but to lay off their employees – and in many cases have no choice but to shutter their businesses permanently.

JK tweet - Sally Kohn is economically illiterate

These are real Americans whose lives, businesses, and livelihoods are being ravaged by a mandated shutdown enforced by their city and state governments. And Sally Kohn actually wants you to believe that they aren’t being FORCED, but are doing this by CHOICE.

Boy, I’ll tell you. Every time I think these idiots in the corporate news media can’t possibly get me any angrier, someone like Sally Kohn opens her gaping maw and proves me wrong.

    She CHOSE to write that crap.

    That gives me pause in itself.

    And she probably cheered, “You go, girl!!” when Ellen compared lounging in her multi-million dollar mansion to being in prison!

    To a far degree, I find the majority of female “journalists” twist the “facts”, lack actual common sense, and ignore the”truth” when writing/whining about their extremely biased, sexist, uninformed, ill-conceived world view OPINIONS. The majority of articles with female bylines are nothing but brainwashed, warped “touchy-feely” liberal propaganda and should be ignored completely to maintain ones long-term mental health. Just sayin’!

    I don’t listen to lifeforms that wear Bob’s Big Boy hairdos. Both homosexual genders do it.

    It’s kind of a rule for me.

    And if you own a mirror and do that on purpose you have failed life’s lowest IQ test.

    The IQ test is….will people take my arguments seriously if I look like I should be hoisting a hamburger in the air?

    Dianny, you vividly and accurately describe Kohn as “an economic illiterate”, as displaying “a callous lack of understanding”, and being the possessor of “a heaping helping of smug ignorance”.

    Exactly right. But there’s more. She has proudly declared that she wants her daughter to grow up to be a sexual deviant. In February 2015, she wrote a piece (of what?) for the WaPo: I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too. Note: and that’s the title. It’s really quite remarkably odious.

    See Sally, I “chose” not to watch your show. A business owner can’t chose to pay his/her employees if they have no money with which to pay them.

    “…an economic illiterate” with “…a heaping helping of smug ignorance.”

    The former begets the latter. It is very easy to imagine that this demonstrated low level of economic knowledge and business experience could produce a dangerously high level of smug ignorance that would allow one to be comfortable with promoting socialism over capitalism.

    Not sure if Sally Kohn is promoting socialistic changes in our economy — but it seems like she could

    Ok, Sally. When Garcetti says water and power will be shut off to businesses that do not comply with the “stay-at-home” mandate for “non-essential” businesses, will you please tell us all how they have a “choice”. You, my dear, are a choice piece of dog sh**. Sorry if I have offended any dogs out there.

    This isn’t just poor Sally who thinks this way. She didn’t come up with this concept on her own. A majority of the left operates in a bubble, an echo chamber that pumps out these unworkable, impossible policy ideas and sells them to the Sallys of the world. They just burp out what they are fed on an endless loop, just select a topic and pull the string. Everything I’ve ever seen attributed to this imbecile is just standard leftist tripe, she has zero independent thought.

    Same thing with the “make corporations pay their fair share” crowd. Pull their string and they can all recite chapter & verse about how all society’s troubles would be solved if .gov would simply confiscate enough corporate cash.

    As though every corporation that makes a profit has a big vault down in the basement and all .gov needs to do is back up the truck. They just don’t get it, there is no pile of cash. WE are the vault that they are trying to raid, WE are the ones that pay the money.

    Some people wake up as they become adults but I’m afraid it’s far too late for Sally, she will never get it.

    I guess in Sally’s world, checks written without a sufficient balance don’t bounce! (And unicorn farts bring good luck to all who smell them.)
