New GOP campaign ad targets 'unhinged' Dems
The Hill ^ | June 27, 2018 | Max Greenwood

The Republican National Committee is going after Democratic politicians and liberal celebrities in a new ad dubbing the left as "unhinged."

The ad, released Tuesday, splices together sound bites from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), as well as several celebrities, to cast the modern Democratic Party as radical and — at times — violent.

"A few years ago, ideas that we talked about were thought to be fringe ideas, radical ideas and extremist ideas," Sanders can be heard saying in the ad, as images of burning cars and graffiti promoting revolution appear on the screen. "Those ideas are now mainstream."

Among the celebrities featured in the video: comedian Kathy Griffin, talk show hosts Bill Maher and Samantha Bee, actor Johnny Depp and singer Madonna.

"Voters have a clear choice in 2018, the Democrat Party is the party of obstruction and extreme rhetoric while the Republican Party is working to deliver a stronger economy for all Americans," Steve Guest, a spokesman for the RNC, said in a statement.

The ad also uses controversial quotes and footage that has sparked outrage among conservatives, like a controversial photo in which Griffin is seen holding a facsimile of President Trump's severed head.

The use of that image in the GOP ad prompted a response from Griffin herself.

"The @GOP has used video from my Trump mask photo shoot in their latest web ad," Griffin tweeted. "They've also included @MaxineWaters and @iamsambee - I'm in good company. Is this the best you got guys? A comic's photoshoot...while your president is keeping children in internment camps?"

"Also I'd like to note I was under a two month federal investigation for this image...but the GOP and @GOPChairwoman use it in an ad?" she added. "So it was allegedly dangerous enough that I needed to be the subject of this investigation but now it's no longer dangerous?"

The ad also weaves in a recent video of Waters calling on Trump's opponents to push back on administration officials when they see them in public. That comment has sparked backlash from Republicans, as well as some Democrats.

The ad is part of an effort by the RNC to cast Democrats as obstructionists – a line of attack often repeated by Trump – ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, a party official said. The RNC is also preparing a substantial digital ad buy aimed at turning out volunteers in key states.

Conservative Reporter Laura Loomer Presses Assault Charges Against Maxine Waters
Gateway Pundit ^ | 6-27-2018 | Cristina Laila
Posted on 6/27/2018, 7:35:18 AM by Proud White Trump Supporter

Laura Loomer asked Maxine, “Should conservatives sit in the back of the bus?” and “Where should conservatives eat?”

Maxine Waters did not like the questioning and swatted at Laura.

Now this…:

On Tuesday evening, Laura Loomer went to the Capitol Police in Washington, D.C., and filed assault charges against Maxine Waters.

Laura Loomer says Maxine Waters assaulted her 3 times and it’s all caught on camera:

“Today I filed a police report in Washington, D.C. to press charges against Congresswoman Maxine Waters for assaulting me,” Loomer said.

“When I confronted her regarding her call for targeted harassment of Trump administration officials, Ms. Waters assaulted me 3 times. She hit my hand to try to knock my phone out of my hand, and then she hit me in the face with her papers twice,” Loomer continued.

Excellent. I heard a talking head say the other day that Elizabeth Warren is running around the country making speeches to leftist groups in which she argues for the abolition of any border enforcement. They need to get that in the commercial.

It got kathy griffin mad. The late night talking a$$HOLES known as “comics” are mad, and attacking DJT. Horseface Waters will be getting up and calling for more attacks on White House women.
Leftist dog-training papers are calling for attacks on White House women.
Bug eyed alien pelosi is supporting MS13 murderers.

Yes, the left is unhinged. Easy for them to be, because they are already insane and have no fundamental principles to base their lives on. They have nothing, believe in nothing, and are worth nothing. Their lives have no meaning. I wish them a quick end to their suffering and the blissful repose of nirvana-like annihilation.

The issue is, there is sooo much unhinged content it’s difficult to put together a short highlight reel for TV.

Apparently, Mad Max does not like to receive what she is calling to be dished out.

Very effective. I am pleasantly surprised the RNC has had the courage to put it together. I was afraid the Republicans wouldn’t take advantage of all these stunts and use them against the Democrats. I’m very glad to see they are.

I hope someone slaps her false horse teeth out of her mouth. She speaks with forked gum. Max Max you nasty old battle-ax. She's a bitch over troubled waters. I would bet money that they would find numerous crimes if they investigated the old wench. They would probably find a dozen crimes based on her level of stupidity.

Yes, they should

Film or animations of “drug mules” gun runners, MS-13 ANIMALS . . . hordes of poor desperates lined up at the border, per the encouragement of Pelosi, Schumer and the Prez of Mexico.

Then ask . .. “who’s REALLY for ‘open borders”? You? Your kids? Your grandkids? Neighbors? School?

The "resistance" began before Trump was inaugurated, the pink-hat march was on inauguration day. So Trump had literally not done a thing as President. Yet the crazy was already uncontainable. Why? Well, they thought he was crude, he was vulgar. He called Hillary a "nasty woman". And the things on the Access Holloywood tape.

Their response? To be 10,000 times more vulgar. Makes sense if you're a mental midget that can barely form a coherent thought, like someone suffering a debilitating brain injury or an actor or a pop star.
