Chaos erupts at the Nevada Democratic convention as Bernie Sanders supporters are threatened with arrest
It was not supposed to be this way. The Republican primary season was supposed to be filled with chaos as 17 candidates vied for the nomination of the party while the Democratic primary season was supposed to be a cakewalk ( I prefer coronation) for Hillary Clinton.
While all is still not right within the Republican party there are signs of a unification beginning as Donald Trump pivots to the general election and everyone sets their sights on defeating Hillary Clinton. The same cannot be said for the Democratic party and the latest example of this comes from Nevada’s Democratic convention earlier today. Chaos erupted after Hillary Clinton’s campaign successfully got 60 Bernie Sanders delegates disqualified because they are not registered Democrats.
Sanders delegates felt “cheated” after the Clinton campaign challenged the standing of 60 Sanders delegates for not being registered Democrats.
If Democratic party rules require delegates to be registered Democrats (which would seem obvious to me they should be) then Bernie Sanders supporters do not have a leg to stand on, but of course they do not care about the rules but only in what they believe is fair. And of course they forget (if they knew in the first place) that Bernie Sanders was not a registered Democrat in the first place…
It got so bad that the police had to come in and threaten to arrest supporters of Bernie Sanders, here are a few videos of what happened:
Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States, it sickens me to think about it but I believe this with all my heart, but we might as well enjoy the show while it is going on because it does make for great entertainment to see Bernie Sanders’s supporters come to the realization that they really do not have a voice.
Maybe the rift will be so large that these voters will stay home in November or possibly support the libertarian nominee but as I said above; this is not the way it was supposed to happen and I think it shows us that the mainstream media is losing its influence in shaping the news to its agenda.
