A whole bunch of bad stuff went down at the Nevada Democratic Convention over the weekend.
Supporters for Bernie Sanders disrupted the proceedings by throwing chairs and later threatening the state chairwoman in a fight over delegates. They’re threatening to take the fun all the way to Philadelphia to. So much for unity.
Sanders has said he doesn’t support the violence or death threats, but he’s not actually doing anything to reign in his supporters. If you’re going to demand Donald Trump to calm his people down, you should do the same when your crowd gets chair-throwing happy.
He could at least tell his supporters to stop calling Roberta Lange, the chairwoman of the state party, with death threats to her and her family. They could also stop giving out her private phone number.
Bernie Sanders is not going to be the Democratic Party’s nominee. That doesn’t mean he should drop out as many of Clinton’s supporters are suggesting. The man has a right to take his campaign all the way through California to the convention in Philly. His platform is important and the party needs to listen. That said, his supporters should realize Bernie isn’t going to win, demand his voice in the platform, and support their party unless they want to see three more John Roberts on the Supreme Court, or worse, three Gary Buseys.
If you’re going to live by “Bernie Or Bust,” then bust is exactly what you’re going to get.
I can’t support candidates. I can’t give them money. I can’t campaign for them. That said, I’d really like one of those Bernie shirts. Not because I’m on Bernie’s team (I’m not on Hillary’s either). I just think they look cool.
