Remember when Bernie Sanders explained that Planned Parenthood was part of the “establishment”? This statement sent all the usual suspects into a tizzy. But interestingly the Senator’s supporters – a pretty “progressive” lot – were surprisingly warm to Bernie’s critique and used the hashtag #ImSoEstblishment to mock Hillary Clinton and the congressional Democrats who were unleashed to defend the abortion provider.
Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million in taxpayer financed subsidies. Even still the organization has openly supported Hillary Clinton with millions in ad buys, and political support.

Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, his vast political network’s 501(c)(4) “social welfare” arm, sought a $1.5 million boost for a Planned Parenthood legal, lobbying, and rapid response operation it called the Fight Back Campaign.
The money would enable the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the group’s lobbying arm, “to mobilize grassroots and grasstops supporters and lobby Congress to counter attempts to defund Planned Parenthood at the federal and state levels,” an internal OSPC document said in language designed to brief its board on the grant.
