While the mainstream media focus almost exclusively on the chaos within the Republican Party, civil war lurks just under the surface of the Democratic Party. Last week, violence broke out at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel during the Nevada Democratic Party State Convention, with Bernie Sanders supporters tossing chairs and sending violent texts and voicemails to the Nevada chairwoman, Roberta Lange. Lange took a fake voice vote on an issue of importance – whether to select alternative delegates from the Sanders slate – and then unilaterally adjourned the convention.
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who is unusually sensitive to criticism, complained that there were 100 Sanders supporters who “were very vocal and I can’t describe it.” CNN reported “Loud cursing, shouting, obscene gestures and vile insults, including crude comments about the female anatomy.” Sanders supporters threaten similar activity at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Boxer said, “He should get things under control…We have to be united. He knows that.” Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that Sanders should drop out if he lost California to Hillary Clinton: “I think it would be most regretful if there becomes a schism….It’s the responsibility particularly of Senator Sanders to see that doesn’t happen.”
