Sally Kohn, a former senior strategist at the Soros-funded Center for Community Change, has been hired as a Fox News Contributor. Soros is the controversial hedge fund billionaire, convicted of insider trading in France, who finances the “progressive” movement in the U.S.
It is significant that Kohn is now a regular paid commentator on Fox News, while Glenn Beck, the one-time archenemy of George Soros, was ousted from the channel last year and now hosts an Internet TV show.
An open lesbian who shuns feminine attire and frequently wears a suit jacket, Kohn is joining Fox News after being a regular on such programs as “The Ed Show” on liberal rival MSNBC. She is now officially part of the “Fox News Family,” as she puts it, and has been making appearances on the channel for several days.
The selection of Kohn raises disturbing questions about the direction of Fox News in a critical election year. Kohn worked at the Center for Community Change, one of the leading Soros-funded groups, for six years, from 2004—2010. During this period, the group received $5.8 million from Soros’s main vehicle, the Open Society Institute (OSI).
The former chair of the board of the Center for Community Change, Cecilia Munoz, was recently named the Director of the Domestic Policy Council in the White House, a position that makes her one of Obama’s top aides. She had been serving as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. A White House press release about her appointment notes that she previously served on the U.S. Programs Board of the OSI and was Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza.
Kohn has a history of her own, having worked for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a group that tries to keep criticism of the homosexual agenda out of the mainstream media. Interestingly, GLAAD has relentlessly attacked Fox News, with one of the latest examples being an occasion during which correspondent Shannon Bream interviewed guests critical of a transgendered person, a man dressed as a woman, who had used a woman’s changing room at a department store. GLAAD viewed this criticism as “dangerous.”
GLAAD attacked CNN for including an ex-gay activist on the air, saying his views were harmful to their interests.
Not only is Kohn’s hiring by Fox News a victory for GLAAD, where she worked for two years, but the Soros-funded and gay-run Media Matters organization is extremely happy with the selection.
“Fox News Hires Gay Rights Activist Sally Kohn As Contributor” declared “Equality Matters,” a division of Media Matters. “Aside from her history of progressive activism, Kohn has also been an outspoken proponent of LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] equality,” it said. Still, Media Matters wonders if Kohn is going to be aggressive enough on the air.
Soros had given Media Matters $1 million for a campaign to neutralize the conservative message of Fox News. “Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast,” said Soros. “I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.”
In response, Fox News fired Beck, even while calling it a mutual decision and promising collaboration on “a slate of projects for Fox News Channel and Fox News’ digital properties” that have yet to materialize.
Kohn herself narrated a video making fun of Beck, insisting that he was spouting misinformation about fascism and communism being extreme left-wing ideas and implying that he was the real fascist. She said that liberals like President Obama and herself favor “democratic capitalism,” not any kind of state control of the economy.
The reality, however, is quite different.
“Sally Kohn makes the world safe for radical ideas,” her website says. In fact, Kohn is a far-left radical who attended the 2003 World Social Forum in Brazil, a meeting place for groups which say they are opposed to capitalism and U.S. imperialism. The 2011-2012 “Calendar of Struggles” for the World Social Forum includes:
Not only is Kohn now on Fox News, where she can demonstrate the channel’s “fair and balanced” commitment by championing radical Arab and pro-Marxist causes, she is being given open access to the influential FoxNews.com website, where she writes articles praising the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The Kohn bio at the end of her Fox News columns says she is the founder and Chief Education Officer of the Movement Vision Lab, “a grassroots think tank,” but clicking on the organization’s website takes you to Kohn’s personal page. It appears that the Movement Vision Lab was a project of the Center for Community Change that has since been discontinued.
One particular aspect of Kohn’s gay rights career—working at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force—has caught the attention of Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth, a group that monitors the advance of the homosexual agenda. He said the Task Force is one of the most radical homosexual organizations on the scene today and works openly with the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, a group dedicated to advancing what are called the “BDSM-Leather-Fetish, Swing, and Polyamory Communities.” The latter are references to so-called “kinky” sexual practices widely considered dangerous and/or immoral.
Kohn’s three-year stint at the Task Force included “organizing campaigns and research projects for gay rights, earning the ability to call myself a ‘professional gay’ for the rest of my life,” she says.
Kohn has a three-year old daughter, Willa Hansen-Kohn, with her “partner,” Sarah Hansen, a community organizer with involvement in such groups as the Soros-funded Tides Center.
The relationship is newsworthy because Kohn reportedly met Hansen at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in January 2003. The World Social Forum is a gathering of groups “opposed to neoliberalism and to domination of the world by capital and any form of imperialism, and are committed to building a planetary society directed towards fruitful relationships among Humankind and between it and the Earth.”
Kohn also regularly attends the U.S. Social Forum, the American affiliate of the World Social Forum, which has assembled in the past under the banner of “Another U.S. Is Necessary!”
Its National Planning Committee includes such groups as:
Both Kohn and Rashad Robinson, executive director of a group called Color of Change, have attended the Soros-funded event known as the “Creative Change Retreat,” described as a place where “arts and social justice” come together.
Color of Change was co-founded by Van Jones, the former Obama official who lost his job after Beck, then on Fox News, highlighted his radical communist connections by drawing on material from anti-communist blogger Trevor Loudon and others.
Jones had the last laugh, noting during an appearance at the Campaign for America’s Future conference that Beck had lost his job at Fox.
Soros’s Open Society Institute had provided $300,000 to Color of Change and its parent entity called the Citizen Engagement Laboratory. Executive director Robinson had previously worked as Senior Director of Media Programs for GLAAD, where he apparently learned the techniques of protesting the presence of conservative voices in the media.
It was in response to Beck’s attacks on Soros and Obama that Color of Change organized an advertiser boycott of Beck’s show, while other Soros-funded organizations such as the Jewish Funds for Justice and Media Matters accused Beck of anti-Semitism for criticizing Soros.
Despite the phony nature of the charge against Beck—Soros is an atheist with no love for Israel—Fox News buckled under the pressure. “Beck’s lack of advertisers made him a financial liability for Fox, and it’s clear that this was a driving factor in his departure from Fox,” Robinson said. “This is an incredible and unprecedented victory.”
But Beck was not and is not the only target. Color of Change has also demanded that Eric Bolling, now a regular on “The Five” Fox News program that replaced Beck’s show, be fired for “race-baiting and fear-mongering.”
Bill O’Reilly, host of “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News, has been a target as well. But Kohn’s former employer GLAAD has been his nemesis. O’Reilly is now featuring Kohn as a liberal guest on his show, apparently hoping to stave off the criticism of his program.
WHAT IS THE WORLD IS FOX NEWS THINKING? I go to FOX NEWS on the internet, but haven't in a couple weeks as I've been busy with other things -- such as here and like sites. Once you get IN BED with anyone who has anything to do with SOROS you're DONE!! At least as far as I'm concerned. They've wanted to shut Fox UP or shut them DOWN for a long time!!! My opinion 000 DUMB MOVE!!!
O'Reilly has been moving towards the dark side for over two years now. Most of his guests are liberal loons, ie Juan Williams, Lamont Hill etc. He usually has 2 liberals on at the same time for a debate instead of a liberal and a conservative! I don't watch his show very much any more. Also he constantly advertizes his books and his tours and barely reads many e-mails! I faced it, he has turned! I also turn off Rivera when he comes on and never watch his sunday of saturday show! Sick of having to listen to all the liberal loons and and told that they are legitimate! Bye Bye FOX NEWS, YOU HAVE GONE OVER TO THE DARK SIDE!
'What do you expect for a network that is majority owned by one of the muslum shieks of Saudia Arabia. He is the largest stockholder in the company... http://thinkprogress.org/media/2010/02/10/81482/right-rebels-foxnew...
Kohn is just another "Freak" to report the news. Have all seen her pic on the internet where she is holding a Tea bag in her teeth???? that aught tell you something. She is also the cheif agitator for the Soros funded Womens Media Center (womensmediacenter.com) she needs to be sent back to sodom and gomarrah where she came from.
this country is going downhill fast and will not be long before we are the USSA. especially if obummer and his cronies are re-elected. Their socialist, radical, activism will increase ten fold if they are put back in DC. And there will be no stopping them, short of a second American Revolution to restore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Just like the debates last night..... all the trouble this county is in, and all the liberal media is worring about is wheither Newt wanted an open marriage or not......... what a crock of BS. Has anyone checked on all the Dumocrats and their misstresses lately? Newt wants an open marriage (if true) and thats the worse sin in history, but Clinton has Monica crawling all over the Oval Office floor, putting things in her mouth, and thats OK............ Gary Hart pays for a little on the Monkey business and thats the worse sin in history......... but Clinton has Jennifer Flowers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and he is the greatest thing since sliced bread???????? Why are the Republicans not bringing out all this dumocrat BS?????? Go ahead, stick your head back in the sand and next time you pull it out you may look around to see King Obummer and the new USSA. I guess, if you get Horney, you better be a dumocrat, Republicans are nailed to a cross for it...
How many of satan's' minions does it take to make it fair and balanced?
Fair and Balanced is one thing, but we have MSNBC, NBC, CB we didn't need FOX to go over to their side! If we wanted to listen to BS AND LIES WE COULD HAVE WATCHED THE OTHERS!! Glad I just have basic channels for the weather -- and they can't get that right either !
I have found that O'riley has to be turned off several times while watching Fox. Why? It is difficult enough to keep ones mind pure with no outside lures. But, O'riley finds it amusing (I guess) to have scantily clad women somewhere in his 8 p.m. to 9p.m. program every night. I switch him off and go to a Christian Station such as NRB or CBN or anywhere else that isn't wild and crazy. Christian sounding songs sung by seductive acting women or wondering eyed studs don't resonate either.
The world gets darker by the hour and seduction/deception more intense. There is only one source of truth and that resides in the person of Jesus Christ and His word. There is no other word given among men where-by we must be saved. We can expect to see the wickedness increase but it should never increase thru us.
IN MY OPINION SALLY KOHN IS A DYKE FOR IF YOU LOOK LIKE A DYKE, TALK LIKE A DYKE AND WALK LIKE A DYKE, YOU ARE A DYKE. I AM NOT SURPRISED AT FOX NEWS WITH THEIR "FAIR AND BALANCED" AGENDA TO HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY INFILTRATED BY THE "LIBERALS" FOX NEWS WELCOME OUT OF WEAKNESS, LIBERALS SUCH AS JUAN WILLIAMS, LESLIE MARSHALL. KIRSTEN POWER, (PERVERT ANTHONY WEINER EX-GIRLFRIEND) BOB BECKEL, ELLIS HENICAN, JEHMU GREENE, ALAN COLMES, MARY ANN ,MARSH, THE BLACK COLUMBIA PROFESSOR MARC LAMONT HILL WHICH ADS UP TO A BUNCH OF LIBERALS WHO ALWAYS HAVE THE LAST WORD AS PER BILL O'REILLY MANTRA OF BEING "FAIR AND BALANCED" BS...!!!
FOX WENT TO THE DARK SIDE LAST YEAR, I DON'T WATCH THEM ANY MOORE. ( IT'S CALLED GREED )
I found out about FOX shortly after the Saudi Arabia investors came in to the picture. I sent Bill a ton of information on the UN, NATO and NWO. The connections they all had. Thinking he would look at and report, but only silence. Then later the story broke and he was accused of not reporting it intentionally. He said that he would report on it if he had any information and that he is sure he would have heard from someone if it was out in the public. He said if anyone has any information he would love to see it. So I sent it all again and he cut me off his email list. I was just blocked. I didn't say anything mean or wrong, so it proved to me that he was intentionally not going to get on the topic. So it's selective Fair and Balanced with no fair or balance.
So many times he acts like he knows it all, when in fact he really knows very little about whats going on in this World. Or he is in the business of cover up. I am sick of all the Liberals on there . I turned to FOX to get away from them.
Oh well, GBTV has the truth and soon they will have complete News and all kinds of Family TV and shows. I hope they succeed and blow the rest off the TV. They will be my only source soon.
wounder what will replace FOX, if anything?
I'm new to this site and saw this post and was mad as hell! I couldn't stand Sally whenever she was "guest", and now to have hired a Soros connected radical makes me livid. Reading this article made me aware of much more than I knew about her. Besides the internet and watching Beck and listening to my talk radio hosts, Fox is the only place I can go to on tv that I trust. I don't always agree with everything but felt (and still do at this time) they do make great efforts to bring in other opinions...as it should be. Don't believe a word about them spouting off about Beck being fired....a year before he told his audience he was wanting to do something and was in the works....but stay tuned....Beck is not done...he mentioned something will be coming announced next week and it sounded like it had to do with Soros....so welcome to the nightmare again Soros - you treasonous pile of you know what!
all of msm these days is who FARTS the loudest, you know like a car without a muffler can "out-talk" a thousand muffled cars... fox news has always been in the msm race, with bob beckel in the lead of any derby.
