Bernie Sanders supporters have violent meltdown at Nevada conventions forcing security to shut it down.

Courtesy of MSNBC:  

On the surface, the results from the state Democratic convention in Nevada may not seem especially noteworthy. Hillary Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders in the state’s caucuses in February, and her supporters prevailed at Saturday’s party gathering where delegates to the national convention were chosen. None of this has much of an effect on the overall race. 

At least, that’s the way it may look on paper. When activists gathered in Las Vegas on Saturday, however, Sanders supporters hoped to take advantage of Nevada’s complex process to give him the statewide edge in the delegate count, despite coming in second in February balloting. 

The Washington Post explains what led up to the explosion of anger:


Prior to the state convention, some Sanders supporters began an effort to shift the convention rules in a way that they viewed as more favorable to their candidate. One of those changes, the Las Vegas Sun reported, was a process for verifying voice votes; another took issue with the state party chairwoman, Roberta Lange, heading up the convention. Supporters at the event circulated petitions to the same end. The scene was set. 

The first report from the credentials committee on Saturday morning indicated that Clinton had a slight edge in delegates. Sanders fans voted against that report, per Jon Ralston, and then demanded a recount – but this was simply a preliminary figure…. That was when the vote to approve the rules as written – Roberta’s Rules versus Robert’s Rules, as some Sanders backers dubbed them – was conducted by voice vote. The motion, seconded by a Sanders supporter, passed – which is when the room, in Ralston’s phrasing, “erupts.” 

You can see that eruption for yourself right here.

And things actually got worse from there:

Some Sanders supporters upset with Saturday's proceedings protested against state party chairwoman, Roberta Lange, outside the Nevada State Democratic Party headquarters on Sunday. Her cellphone number was posted on social media and officials said Lange had received hundreds of phone calls and text messages, including death threats.

Some Sanders' supporters are now talking about a third party emerging to challenge the Democrats:  

A third party will emerge from the anger, frustration, and animosity felt by millions of Bernie Sanders supporters, who believe Bernie stands for ideals, while Clinton represents the vapid allure of political power.It’s impossible for establishment Democrats to understand the level of emotion involved in helping elect Bernie Sanders in 2016. 

Battling a political machine that earns millions in speaking fees from Wall Street and lobbyist ties, Vermont’s Senator has raised enough money to compete and win. Also, the groundwork for a new political party is rooted in the manner establishment Democrats have treated loyal constituents.

So essentially everything we gleefully predicted might happen to the Republican party if they nominated Donald Trump is instead happening within the Democratic party.

I have little doubt that the GOP convention will come off relatively smoothly.

As for the Democratic convention......well has anybody seen the beginning of "Saving Private Ryan?"

This should be our time. The Republicans have one of the most deeply flawed candidates in history, while the Democrats are on the cusp of nominating one of the most qualified individuals ever to run for office.

But instead once again Democrats are on the verge of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Does everybody finally understand why I have been calling for Bernie Sanders to drop out of this race? Is it finally getting through?

He cannot win, period.

But he can, and IS, creating the kind of chaos and mayhem that destroys political parties and their candidates. Both at the top of the ticket, and down ballot.

    Bernie Sanders (and his wife!) have intentionally split the Democratic party and it makes me sick!

    He 'joined' the Democratic party when he wasn't even a Democrat for Christ's sake!

    The guy and his wife are nothing but evil as far as I'm concerned.

    Democrats - get your shit together and circle around Hillary Clinton as our candidate for POTUS. The Republican party and media have been tearing her apart for months and none of their crap is true!

    Donald Trump would be a horrible POTUS and is very disliked throughout our country and world.

    Come together Democrats - learn the facts, get out the Democratic and Independent voters and VOTE in November!

    From another blog:


    And in other “Fuck the Sanders” news, Burlington College just sent this email about to staff and faculty a little while ago:

    Burlington College Closes Academic Programs

    Burlington, VT– In recent years, Burlington College has struggled under the crushing weight of the debt
    incurred by the purchase of the Archdiocese property on North Avenue. Through sales of property, the College has worked to reduce this debt to a manageable level.

    In April, the College’s lender informed the College it would not renew the College’s line of credit. The College relies on its line of credit to shoulder the cyclical nature of cash flow between semeseters.

    Since July 2014, The College has been on probation with it’s accrediting agency, The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) due to not meeting its financial resources standard. The Federal Department of Education allows a college only two years of probation. Hence, we anticipate notice from NEASC that we have not met the Commission’s financial standard, and, therefore, our accreditation will be lifted as of January 2017, and the College will not be able to award academic credit after this time.

    These hurdles are insurmountable at this time.

    Well done, Jane.

      Absolutely, not true. There was no rule change.

      Sanders delegates (and a few Clinton delegates) were denies because they were not eligible. They either didn't fill out the paperwork correctly or, in the case of a few Sanders delegates, they weren't registered Democrats. I believe a few of them weren't even Nevada residents.

      The county caucus didn't follow the rules about eligibility. This was remedied in the State caucus.

      Thank you!! Except for repeating the false accusation of Hillary Clinton, this is exactly correct. When Sanders and Trump [and their idiot believers] whine about how "the system is rigged" against them, they are right. The parties have organized their internal works so that no one can just stroll in and announce they are the party's candidate. If either Sanders or Trump thought they could win with a third party venture, they would have done that. Unfortunately it didn't occur to either one that joining the party of their choice a few months ahead of declaring their candidacies wouldn't really impress long time party members.

If you look at Politifact, the Pulitzer Prize-winning site that examines candidates’ pronouncements for accuracy, 76 percent of Trump’s statements are rated either “mostly false,” “false,” or “pants on fire,” which is to say off-the-charts false. By comparison, Hillary Clinton’s total is 29 percent.

    I am not wondering if Bernie Sanders' whole purpose in "joining the Democratic Party" was to destroy it. The only people who would benefit from that are the billionaires and they already have their party: the GOP led now by Donald Trump.

    According to Real Clear Politics there have been 21, 951, 362 votes cast in the 2016 Democratic primaries and caucuses. Of those votes Sen. Sanders is getting 43% of them while Clinton is getting 57% of them. Folks that is definitely not winning. In fact it is losing in a landslide. In 2008, for example, Clinton got around 47.8% of the vote while Obama got around 48.1% of the vote. For all of the talk about how Sanders is energizing the Democratic Party a significant majority of voters have not responded to his message.

    Yet despite her lead in the popular vote there are many Sanders supporters who act as if her lead in delegates is somehow illegitimate. That somehow Sanders is being deprived of a victory by the way the rules are being applied.

    Sanders: THE EPITOME OF STRAIGHT WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE

    Bernie and many of his supporters keep acting like victims when he is arguably the most pampered serious contender to a major party's nomination in modern history. Nobody has been treated with so much deference and this diary will explore all of his privileges.

    http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/5/16/1527035/-Sanders-THE-EPITOME-OF-STRAIGHT-WHITE-MALE-PRIVILEGE

    Bernie or Bust Millennials: Grow Up!

    ...With the risk of sounding like my own parents, something I never thought would happen: Grow up. I’ve been a liberal since before you were born. It took two decades of protests over four presidencies to end our involvement in Vietnam. It took more than 90 years to gain the right to abortion—a right we are in imminent danger of losing. Universal healthcare? We’re still working on it.

    Why are you supporting Sanders? Is it because he’s handsome, well-dressed, and you’d like to have a beer with him? Or do you share a vision for our country? Because if you support Sanders because you share his world view, then your political involvement should outlast his candidacy. Barely a year has passed since Sanders announced, and you’re threatening to quit, because your guy may not win. Well, if you can’t give your world view more than a year or two, then it isn’t much of a priority to you, is it? You’re a fraud.

    Yes, our elections are corrupt, rigged, and our candidates are bought and paid for. If you want something different, then I’m sorry to have to tell you: it’s going to take more than a year, more than one candidacy, even more than one presidency.

    Why hasn't Sanders disavowed the undemocratic and unethical acts committed in his name this weekend?

    Bernie Sanders likes to present himself as the last ethical politician in America and the last best hope for democracy itself. Over weekend, some grossly unethical and undemocratic actions were committed in his name, by his supporters and representatives, at the Nevada state Democratic Convention. A day and half later, and still not a peep out of Sanders disavowing it, which is a major moral failing on his part as well as terrible leadership.

    Graph, This is not t he fault of Democrats. It is all up to Bernie Sanders and his enormous ego. He should have ended the "berniebro" nonsense months ago but he's been enjoying it too much. The Democratic Party has its rules in place; Bernie should have known them and should have schooled his campaign people about them. This is clearly an attempt to create anarchy. At this point, by letting all of this happen, Bernie Sanders is doing a great job - for the GOP. I sure with the Democratic Party had turned him down when he came, all sweetness and light, wanting to be a Democrat and toss his hat into the Democratic ring for the nomination. What respect I once had for him is all gone now. I just wish he, like Sarah Palin, would just go away.

  46. Thank you Gryph for posting this.

    It's funny, just about 2 hours ago someone asked me if I knew anything about "this Nevada thing" because a friend of his on Facebook posted something from a Bernie supporter perspective basically saying "They've stolen our election" and ended his post with "This is why I will not vote in November".

    I said "Well, I haven't read anything I think I can trust to repeat, I'm waiting to hear what Jon Ralston has to say. He's been covering politics in Nevada for years and I don't think he can be called a partisan, so I would trust his reporting" and voila!

    Now, to try to stem the Creep of Misinformation that floats around Facebook as real and infects people's brains.

    People will easily believe that which they want to believe.

    But Hillary understands that, and I don't think Bernie does. If he did win the nomination, which he will not, he would face a smear machine the likes of which he has never witnessed.

    Any small lead he may have in polls taken today (Sanders v Trump compared to Clinton v Trump) will be washed away with just a measly million-dollar cross-country ad buy calling him a Socialist (Democratic or otherwise) and saying his plans would raise taxes (which I believe is true).

      Berniebots and rabid fundies make the same mistake: they have no idea how most of American voters think and they greatly overestimate their own numbers. And they're not interested in learning how to win; they think that if people didn't accept their message the first time, they can just yell louder and magically attract a majority.

      The problem is that state colleges and universities are state-funded, with varying levels of support. How will the federal government step in? Will they pay full freight for a state university education in states that fund at different levels? Will states jump in and stop funding their universities because the federal government is now paying?

    "Yes, the Sanders are quite the gruesome twosome."


    Townhall.Com:
    Total Destruction: College That Jane Sanders Ran Into The Ground Closes Its Doors

    Jane Sanders, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, ran Burlington College from 2004-2011. As president, she retrospectively took a financially idiotic task of expanding the college, taking on $10 million in debt to purchase a plot of land from the local Roman Catholic diocese. The plan to repay the debt was to increase enrollment and beef up fundraising, with both ventures ending in failure. In 2011, Sanders was shown the door (and given a $200,000 severance package). By 2015, the school was $11.4 million in debt, with $300,000 in unpaid bills. Most of the land acquired by Sanders was sold off, as the school was in an untenable financial situation. Now, the school that Sanders ran into ground is closing its doors at the end of the month (via Politico)

    Yes, the Sanders are quite the gruesome twosome. Jane utterly destroyed Burlington College. The school only had a little over 100 full-time students, with a total graduate and undergraduate enrollment of less than 500--and she was to accrue a $10 million debt?

    Bernie plans to take the country down the same path of financial ruin, with his agenda leading to an explosion of government spending to cover his left wing goodie bag items. In all, the self-described, disheveled Democratic socialist plans on increasing spending by $33 trillion over the next ten years, while adding $21 trillion to the national debt over the same period. To boot, his $15.3 trillion in tax hikes won’t be enough to pay for his left wing, Candy Land vision for this country. And Democrats want these two running the country?

    Lord help us.

    How Bernie Sanders Is the Biggest Con-Man of the 2016 Election -

    Politicians are infamously known for speaking out of both sides of their mouths, giving them a very bad reputation, and rightfully so. This is especially the case when talking about presidential candidates.

    Too few people authentically express their views without worry of the consequence, and because of his unabashed stances vocally supporting socialism, Bernie Sanders’ raw appeal makes nearly all from both sides recognize his apparent authenticity.

    But how does Bernie’s actual record hold up? Bernie wants to make his supporters think that he stands for the little guy.

  65. bernie sander's ideals; dead beat dad (never paid child support and that alone should disqualify him from the presidency), didnt have a real job till age 40, got kicked out of a commune for being lazy and doing no work (all he wanted to do was sit around and talk politics), says he was a conscientuos objector but there was no CO status till 1967 and he was draft age long before that plus COs were given alternative service and bernie claims he never did that kind of service. more likely he just could not be found since he had no job and no address till the 70s, when he lived in a house he stole electricity for from neighbors. sided with developers when they wanted to develop burlington waterfront park, which lost against neighborhood activists. ironically he launched his campaign from that park and the neighbors were very pissed. in all his years in congress he never hired one single person of color or lgbt person. not in dc or in vermont. sided with yankee power to send vermont's nuke waste to a small poor ltino community in texas even after the people in that community begged him not to do that. that right there is environmental racism. broguht home almost a trillion dollars for lockheed martin for a jet that doesnt work, is over budget and will never come online. voted for the iraq war TWICE!!!!!! look that shit up im tired of explaining how the iraq votes went. took over $20,000 from hillarypac for his campaigns for senate. is against golden parachutes for CEOs of failed businesses but had no problem when his wife took a golden parachute when she was fired from burlington college after nearly driving them into bankruptcy. and where are his tax returns? why are all his assets in his wife's name? what exactly is her salary as a consultant to the campaign? how much money has the fec ordered him to send back in illegal campaign contributions ($20 million plus). where did the single source $10 mil foreign contribution come from and why hasnt he sent that back yet? how does he plan on paying back the millions the campaign is in debt? is hillary supposed to help him raise money to retire that debt?

    Do the math, then add in the delegate counts, then explain to America what a Socialist Democrat is, and you got your winner, and all the votes aren't in yet.

    Bernie Sanders’s Wife Just Destroyed An Entire College

    A college once run by Sen. Bernie Sanders’s wife Jane has announced it’s closing in two weeks, thanks to a crushing debt burden it took on during her presidency....

    But the amount of debt was dramatic for such a tiny school, and it ended up backfiring horribly....

    In a statement, Burlington College Dean of Operations Coralee Holm bluntly said the college failed due to “the crushing weight of the debt incurred by the purchase of the Archdiocese property” made by Sanders. [BY WHO?]

    In a press conference Monday afternoon, Holm described the college’s collapse as “heartbreaking.”

    “To see an [educational] institution go out of business is very difficult,” she said, with tears filling her eyes. The school’s employees will lose their jobs, while students in the middle of degrees will have to transfer to another school, potentially losing credits in the process.

    Remember reading comments about the con the Sanders campaign are running? Well Jane Sanders may be under investigation.

    Dailycaller.com
    But there may be even more to the story than a case of bad business sense.

    As was reported in a 2015 Daily Caller News Foundation investigation, Burlington College obtained the fatal $10 million loan through dubious means that may even have amounted to fraud on the part of Sanders or others. In order to have the loan approved by the Vermont Educational and Health Buildings Finance Agency (VEHBFA), Burlington College had to demonstrate it was set to receive at least $2.27 million in pledges and donations in the near future. The school subsequently produced a list of $2.6 million in grants and legally-binding pledges it expected to receive within the next five years.

    Yet in the summer of 2011, just a few months after the school received its big loan, an audit of the college’s finances showed only $1.3 million in short- and long-term financial commitments, suggesting about half of the school’s supposedly guaranteed pledges had simply vanished. If Sanders or others at Burlington College misrepresented the school’s financial situation, it could represent a case of fraud.

    In January, 2016, attorney Vermont Republican Party vice-chair Brady Toensing sent a letter to U.S. Attorney Eric Miller asking him to investigate the matter, but thus far the federal government has shown no signs it is looking at the issue.

    What I find very curious is that Senator Sanders has only been a member of the Democratic party since 2015. He is the longest serving Independent in Congress, and in this presidential primary, the biggest detractor of the party. So my question is, "If the Democratic Party sucks so much, why did Senator Sanders join it just before he announced he was running as a Democratic nominee and now he continues to bad mouth it endlessly. Leads me to the question of why the hell he would run as a Democrat if they are so damn bad. In my opinion Bernie and his followers are just as bad as Trump and his followers for the very same reasons.

      I've begun to think that Bernie Sanders joined the Democratic Party to implode it. And his continuing silence over the uproar caused by his "supporters" at the Nevada Democratic convention makes me even more suspicious. He needs to speak out and stop the craziness among his "supporters" right away and then withdraw from the campaign.

    All this fighting and stuff going on at Sanders's rallies is an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. All those frat boys are just looking for a place to hook up with sorority girls.

    The cost of Sanders Vatican trip


    I'd like to seriously discuss the cost of Senator Sanders' Vatican trip. Given that his campaign is funded by small donors, I expected this to be a rather frugal affair, but my calculations are showing otherwise. Senator Sanders chartered a 767-300, which costs $17,000 per hour to fly. The cost of the flight alone approaches $300,000.

    According to ABC News, this whole trip was organized and funded by the Sanders campaign. Obviously, donors to a campaign don't get to say how that money is used by the campaign, but still, this is a lot of $27 donations to use for a speech at the Vatican that lasted 15 minutes and that the press described as excerpts from his standard stump speech. It's jarring to me, given how Sanders portrays himself and his campaign to the media.

    What do you guys think? Is there something wrong with this? Is this a reasonable campaign expenditure in an attempt to influence the Catholic vote? (This is my first post to r/politicaldiscussion, I've read the rules carefully and I think I'm following all of them.)

  76. I've understood for a long time why Bernie should drop out. He persuaded naively idealistic people that his cantankerous finger-pointing and pie-in-the-sky promises represent some kind of revolution for the common good.

    Months ago, a reader here complimented a photo Gryphen posted with the note that it showed Bernie's "flinty" look, when all I saw was a squinty look. Apart from his failings on domestic policies (which would be legion), Sanders could never be a strong, effective leader on the world stage. Especially considering what a hard act Obama will be to follow.

    It's too late for Sanders to bow out gracefully, preserving a measure of dignity. Now he's just going to be written off as a sore loser, a forgotten historical footnote in some freshman's term paper.
