Sally Kohn gets schooled after comparing #ChapelHillShooting to the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack

Posted at 1:46 pm on February 11, 2015 by Greg P.

The shooting of three Muslim students yesterday in Chapel Hill, NC is horrific and tragic and awful and just about any other adjective you might think of to describe a triple-murder, but there’s one thing that’s clear: It’s not at all comparable to the terrorist attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris last month.


But not according to Sally Kohn:

For real.

Readers quickly schooled Kohn on where she went wrong. First up, on her criticism of the media’s coverage of the event, which is now quite extensive:

Heh. Maybe she needs a time machine to accurately judge the media’s coverage?


And secondly, let’s point out the obvious: there’s no “remotely comp coverage for shooting *OF* Muslims right here @ home” because the two stories aren’t remotely comparable. At all:


Great job, Sally. Except for the number of killers and victims, the weapons used, terrorist ties, multi-day search, multiple terrorist attacks, a police/military stand-off, world solidarity marches and millions of Muslims angered by cartoons, these stories are remarkably similar.
