The moment when Bernie Sanders was denied access to the stage during a Spanish language festival at Plaza Mexico.

Y llego el Bernie A tirar party Asta La Plaza Mexico!! #BANDAIMPERIO #berniesanders

A video posted by Daren Mendoza (@daren780) on

I love some of these comments:

His campaign forgot to call ahead and the event producers didn't let him speak. So disorganized 

Hope he felt that Bern! ¡Viva! 

They just pushed those latinos out of the way 

How embarrassing . Guess white male privilege didn't work out for you dude. #imwithher 

Yeah, sorry! You can't just come and take over an event! What the heck?! 

Man, Bernie Sanders is a mess!

This seems to me to be emblematic of the entire campaign. Unprepared, pushy, and disorganized.

I am just waiting for a statement from the Sanders campaign blaming this on Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party.

    "And yet, Sanders is carrying on as if it’s obvious that he deserves to win, and just a little more pressure will cause everyone to finally see it and give him what he clearly believes is his due"


    Salon:
    Why can’t Sanders admit defeat? He’s looking more and more foolish as he denies Hillary’s victory

    ... But Sanders refuses to give up the ghost, insinuating that he must, on some level, be the real winner and that this fight has to be taken to the convention so he can snatch the prize he clearly believes belongs to him, even as the voters continue disagreeing...

    It’s a frustrating argument, because Sanders spent most of the campaign portraying superdelegates as some kind of corrupt elites there to deprive the popular winner of the vote. But now that Clinton is the clear winner of the popular vote, suddenly the superdelegates are legitimate again....

    That is almost impossible for Sanders to pull off, even if he wins California. Which is why he is hedging his bets by arguing that he should win even if he doesn’t win, by leaning on the very superdelegates he otherwise denounces as anti-democratic evidence of a supposed elitist conspiracy to deny him victory...

    And yet, Sanders is carrying on as if it’s obvious that he deserves to win, and just a little more pressure will cause everyone to finally see it and give him what he clearly believes is his due. Thus all the chatter about how the system is “rigged.”...

    Bernie was one of the few who assured Americans that Social Security wasn't going broke, back when Republicans wanted to allow citizens to withdraw their money and invest it themselves. Bernie was one of the earliest to warn Americans about the Koch brothers. Bernie is the strongest voice for the working class.

    I'm also just waiting for Hillary Clinton to be blamed. Why not? Bernie Sanders will not issue a statement that his campaign really mess-up. He's refused to take responsibility for the misbehavior of many of his supporters, he's been whining himself into headlines for the last couple of months. The Bernie Sanders' train wreck seemed to begin when he traveled all the way to Italy to accost the Pope in hope of garnering a papal blessing before the NY primary. And it's only gotten worse since then.

    6. To those of you who refer to Bernie as a democrat - he's not. He was an Independent until 2015 when he decided to run. He's made public statements against leaders of the Dem party and has accused democrats of rigging the system against him. I was a fan of Bernie like many others but after watching 2 videos of him being rude to his wife on stage - the other video showed his arrogance towards a woman seated next to him - while his arms were flailing in front of her face as he ranted - she was clearly trying to be a good sport about it but it just turned me off.

      He had an incredible start as his campaign exploded with support - I was seriously impressed until I began to see cracks in the image. His desire to be POTUS appears to be the most important outcome no matter what the cost. That includes Trump winning by default as Bernie continues to attack the leaders of the Dem party - and appears he has no problem with his supporters that vow not to cast their vote if it's not him.

      Trump hates to fail, although he has had many failures in his not-so-stellar career, including two marriages. In light of his falling poll numbers as the campaign winds down, he will probably pull out of the campaign, blaming the press, Hillary and everyone else for his "poor health" which, according to his very best doctors, was "tremendous" before the attacks against him.

      Right now, even his businesses are seeing the backlash. His brand is failing. He cannot abide failure; he is a liar. He will tell The Big Lie to get out of a crushing defeat.

    "Clinton is the antithesis of that young captain, someone with no honor, little courage and commitment only to her endless ambition. This has nothing to do with gender, party affiliation, ideology or policy. It is a question of character — not just hers, but ours. Electing Clinton would mean abandoning holding people accountable for grievous errors of integrity and responsibility. What we already know about her security infractions should disqualify her for any government position that deals in information critical to mission success, domestic or foreign. But beyond that, her responses to being found out — dismissing its importance, claiming ignorance, blaming others — indict her beyond anything the investigation can reveal. Those elements reveal her character. And the saddest thing is that so many in America seem not to care."

      Ah, but you forget, he's not really a Democrat, he's an Independent at heart, always has been, always will be,and that's where he's coming from. Not saying that's a bad thing, but IMHO, it's probably why he's rebelling against the Democratic platform. He can still reclaim some of his former respect by graciously changing his attitude & accepting the inevitable.

      The sole objective here is defeating the Rethuglicans. If we don't,it's the end of America as we've known & loved it.

      I've always been a Bernie supporter, but have lost a lot of respect for him. Many of his supporters sound more like Drumpf's supporters and have bought into all of the GOP's smear tactics against Hilary - hook, line & sinker. that's obvious by some of his supporter's comments here.

      If, by some miracle, he stays in & pulls it off, I will gladly vote for him. We have to unify the party or just hand it off to the worst people in the Nation.

      And i would defend Gryphen's right to waste his elequence on Bernie-hating, even though this blog would be a lot more interesting to me if he reported on Drumpf's antics and Hillary's Drumpf-stomping.

      I'm entitled to my fucking opinion, Meghan, no matter how stupid you think it to be.

    His campaign forgot to call ahead. I REST MY CASE!!! Love the Bern, have known since day one for he can't get elected because he has no political organization to rely on. He hasn't been a Democrat until recently, so he has no party support either. Give it up Bernie, c'mon over to the Democrats and help us get Hillary elected.

    Interestingly, those who would vote for Sanders but not Clinton against Trump are evenly split when it comes to party identification – 35 percent identify as Republicans, 33 percent as Independents and 31 percent as Democrats. This is not particularly good news for Clinton as more than two-thirds of those who would support Sanders but not Clinton do not identify as Democrats. If the 31 percent who identify as Democrats vote in the general election, they will be much more likely to vote Democrat than Republican. But the likelihood that the 33 percent of Independents in this group would vote Democrat is unknown. And it is hard to believe that a large number of the 35 percent who identify as Republicans would be persuaded to support the Democratic nominee.

    Throughout the Democratic primary race, Sanders has repeatedly said he wants to move the party to the left and has openly challenged the party to adopt his left-leaning policy platform in their July convention. This has led many pundits to suggest that very liberal voters would abandon the Democratic Party in November and it leads to the question of whether Sanders but not Clinton voters are mainly left-leaning liberals. Surprisingly, 57 percent of Sanders but not Clinton voters identify as moderates. This is a stark and surprising finding. It means that Sanders’ margins over Trump are being driven by large numbers of moderate voters.

    If you actually read the article with all of the tweets you will see that the organizers extended a welcome for Bernie to speak after the initial rebuff by one festival worker, but he had moved on by that point. Kind of a non story really.

    I said I'd be ok to vote for either D that got the nod up until the time the Bernie-bots started to complain that they couldn't vote for him in closed primaries because they were registered something other than Democrats.

    What an incompetent. He's been an Independent since 1979. He couldn't take the time to figure out how primaries work in each state and keep his supporters up to date so that they could vote for him if they wanted to? Then they had the gall to call the process "crooked". Nope, their candidate hasn't got a clue, and that's just how he'd be as POTUS.

    I guess the thing that really gets me the most is how seriously most of you take this process. It's theatre, political theatre, no candidate is better than another and America is already on the way out as a first-world power so why not just enjoy the show and now worry so much about it, much less spend any actual time or money on it. Just let it go. The rest of the world sees the writing on the wall; very soon America will no longer dictate what other nations do, nations rise and then they fall, and we're all witnessing the downfall of America.

    Things happen, so his people forgot to make plans? Bernie can just soldier on until he's good and ready to end his campaign. There's a point of diminishing returns, and maybe I'm biased because I'm a Hillary voter, but that point seems to have passed.

  39. I'm beginning to think Sanders is non compos mentis. Maybe he's in the early stages of some form of dementia, or he's always been impaired, but managed to fake normalcy.
