‘Hell yes’: This USA Today opinion piece on Kamala Harris is perfect ammo for the Left’s ‘circular firing squad’

What do leftists serve at dinner parties? Each other, of course! They just can’t get enough of eating themselves.
Case in point, this prog opinion piece on Kamala Harris:
More from Peter Funt:
This under-publicized revelation comes as Harris is getting a lot of ink for being tough about guns. Her words are fine, but for a progressive like me, they are undermined by that handgun. And I can’t be the only one who is disturbed. Keeping a handgun for personal safety is a bedrock conservative view. The best defense against a “bad guy with a gun,” the NRA falsely argues, is “a good guy with a gun.”
At this week’s CNN town hall on the campus of Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, moderator Don Lemon noted that many students are “concerned about how gun violence might affect them or a family member.” That led to a routine question about gun control, but neither the student questioning the senator nor Don Lemon thought to ask Harris if she owns a gun.
This time, Harris didn’t mention her handgun. She returned to her standard stump speech, blaming lawmakers who “have failed to have the courage” to act reasonably about guns. It’s a “false choice,” she said, to suggest that “you’re either in favor of the Second Amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away.”
Perhaps. But Kamala Harris doesn’t seem to have the courage to concede that owning a handgun for protection is a bad idea. Instead, she has given voters a real choice: Back candidates who care enough about gun control to not own handguns, or support the only major Democratic contender who has one and won’t throw it away.
Is Kamala Harris a hypocrite when it comes to guns (and a ton of other stuff)? Yes. Is Funt a hypocrite for touting his progressivism while trying to shame a woman? Yes. Is hypocrisy inherent to progressivism? Yes.
But but leave it to liberals to claim they care about women but now they don’t want someone because she protects herself

The hypocrisy gets old. The self-cannibalization, on the other hand, never stops being fun to watch.
But we’re here for it.
