Bernie Sanders tweeted out this video of fellow socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the road in Kansas to campaign with Dem Brent Welder when she accidentally said, “We’re going to flip this seat red in November”:

Here in Kansas City with @Ocasio2018 to support @BrentWelder and flip this seat in November.

— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) July 20, 2018

Maybe she means red as in the signature color of communism?

Welder, a labor lawyer, is running against Emily’s List endorsed Sharice Davids, a lesbian, Native American, amateur mixed martial arts fighter who was a fellow in the Obama administration:

Kansas– you have a primary August 7
Here are two Emily’s List endorsed candidates who are not backed by Russia. Please take a friend and vote.
Sharice Davids (KS-03) @sharicedavids
Laura Kelly (KS-GOV) @SenatorKelly

Israel Launched Another Air Raid On Hamas Targets In Gaza

Newsy - 14 hours 7 min ago

Watch Video

Israel's air force said it launched a "wide-scale attack" Friday on Hamas targets in Gaza after an Israeli soldier was shot and killed along the border with the Strip. 

Israel Defense Forces responded, killing four Palestinians, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. Reports vary on whether three or all four of the Palestinians killed were members of Hamas, the militant political group controlling Gaza. 

The IDF then targeted dozens of Hamas locations in Gaza. This barrage follows similar attacks in recent weeks that were reported to be the largest exchanges since the 2014 war. 

Gaza and Israel have been on edge for months amid continuing Palestinian protests against a yearslong blockade that has devastated its economy. 

Reuters reports a Hamas spokesman said the group agreed to a ceasef-ire. Israel has yet to comment on a possible break in fighting. 

FLASHBACK: James Gunn endorsed advertiser boycott of Laura Ingraham

Twitchy - 14 hours 8 min ago

It’s not just Roseanne Barr who writer-director James Gunn thought should be fired. Check out what he had to say about Fox News’ Laura Ingraham:

I’m really looking forward to season two of Handmaid’s Tale so I hope @hulu stops advertising on the Aunt Lydia show – uh, I mean, on the Laura Ingraham show, so I can watch it. Online bullying & shaming of teenagers should not be supported by Hulu. Let them know.

— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 29, 2018

That mob doesn’t look so good when it’s heading your direction, does it?

It gets worse…

Gunn defended Laura Ingraham losing her show because Fox News would just replace it with something else so nobody would lose their jobs:

A) He’s the freaking President of the United States. One of his jobs is to facilitate the economy. B) If Ingraham’s show is canceled it’s replaced by another – an equal amount of jobs. It’s not an overall loss as it is with the NFL. C) Do I really have to explain all this?

Planned Parenthood of NYC: ‘Protect our freedom to f***’

Hot Air - 14 hours 23 min ago

Usually, when you hear Planned Parenthood talking about it’s core issue, abortion, it’s in serious tones, i.e. this is a difficult choice which a woman makes in consultation with her doctor. It’s not something anyone takes lightly, etc, etc. And that’s followed with a claim that the right to abortion is under assault and must be protected (usually by making a donation to Planned Parenthood).

The ad isn’t really focused on abortion but it still seems to be claiming there is a threat to your freedom to do…something.

Actually, I’m not sure what this ad is saying. Are they speaking to people who think the Handmaid’s Tale is just around the corner in NYC? That’s sort of the impression I get overall. In fact, the ad basically boils down to one four-letter word. From CNS News:

Titled “Protect Our Freedom to F*ck: Donate to Planned Parenthood of New York City (PPNYC),” the video shows one person after another saying “F*ck.” It begins with people using the vulgarity to condemn things they don’t like – then, shifts to people cheering their desire to “f*ck” others, like their local bartender or neighbor.

Here’s the utterly NSFW clip.

It’s worth saying once again that even if Roe v. Wade is overturned, there is zero chance that would have an impact on Planned Parenthood of NYC, except that it’s likely the state would move to eliminate existing restrictions on it. It’s even less likely that sex is about to be outlawed on the island of Manhattan. Simply put, the freedom to have sex with whoever you want isn’t at stake, especially not in New York City. So this edgy, revolutionary stance is just a pose. We’re edgy, give us your money!

The ad went up more than a week ago, just a couple days after comedian Michelle Wolf hosted a “Salute to Abortion” on her TV show. As Allahpundit noted at the time, it seems Planned Parenthood is casting aside the mask of gravitas for something more like giddy celebration. Desperation does strange things to people, I guess.
