Again today, at a rally for Bernie Sanders, this one in Seattle, the event was shut down because of #balcklivesmatter protestors.

If i'm a Dem, I'm concerned that these people don't even know who Sanders is, that he was a civil rights protestor back in the 60's. He is, quite literally, one of the good guys working for the black community.

This disconnect may be worse than Trump supporters trying to undermine the Republican Party. With Clinton facing so many inquiries, any one of them could knock her out, leaving Sanders next in line for the nomination.

With the black left and the white left going at each other, looks like trouble looming.

Regardless who the Democrat nominee is, the blue wall is practically insurmountable.  I don't know how the GOP sweeps all States not already blue.

If Bernie Sanders, a registered Socialist, is the nominee, you can throw your blue wall out the window.  If Hillary Clinton, whose lies have yet to be really delved into in a general election, is the nominee, you can throw the blue wall out the window.

You also predicted, if I remember correctly, that there was no way Republicans would get both houses of Congress in 2014.

pabar - I don't believe I ever predicted the Democrats would hold on to the Senate in 2014.  I have said there's a strong chance the Democrats will re-take the Senate in 2016.  In any event, which State in the blue wall do you think the GOP has a good shot at?

If Walker is the nominee, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan can all go Republican.  If Christie is the nominee, New Jersey can go Republican.  If Sanders is the nominee, every state is in play.  If Hillary is the nominee, every midwest state and Pennsylvania are in play.

The last few posts missed the larger point, I think:

This blacklivesmatter thing was founded on a lie (hands up don't shoot), fueled by a POTUS and AG that only takes one side and, rather than helping anything, is making matters worse.

If they are shutting down rallies for Sanders, they are really screwing up.

One of my daughters has become liberally radicalized at college, unfortunately.  She is all about love, peace, and tolerance for all, and is a Sanders fan.  She used to be on the side of blacklivesmatter, but her opinion of that idea is changing.  She was all wrapped up in knots when the cop in Ferguson wasn't indicted.  Now, she understands why he wasn't, and her interest in those types of issues is waning, rather than strengthening, precisely because of the people pretesting at Sanders events.

A year ago, she would have marched with those people.  Now, they are obnoxious obstructionists.

Another wrinkle, the #BlackLivesMatter protesters have started a #CutTheCheck hashtag protest, because the Soros funded group that *pays them* to protest - hasn't been paying them. They charge the group, MORE, (formerly ACORN) is controlled by whites and holding back money from the black community.

Soros, of course, is a billionaire who funds progressive Democrat political candidates, who in turn feed off the social unrest created by Soros' progressive Demicrat *PAID* protesters. See how this works? Democrats fund, as in pay the money, social unrest that tears at the fabric of American society to further the aims of Demicratic Party politicians. That is a vile manipulation of people and their communities -in this case it's African Americans being manipulated, or "Social Engineered" by big money Democrats to disrupt their own communities. Soros and his crew also fund protest movements to disrupt poor Hispanic communities, purpotedly on behalf of illegal immigrants. But the real aim of the *paid* protests is to advance progressive Democrat political ambitions. In light of the Sanders protests, you have to wonder how screwed up this entire movement is becoming.

Seconds after Sanders took the stage, a dozen protesters from the city's Black Lives Matter chapter jumped barricades around the stage and grabbed the microphone from the senator. Holding a banner that said "Smash Racism," two of the protesters -- Marissa Janae Johnson and Mara Jacqeline Willaford, the co-founders of the chapter -- began to address the crowd.

"My name is Marissa Janae Johnson, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Seattle," she said to sustained boos for an audience that had waited an hour and a half to hear Sanders. "I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is, filled with its progressives, but you already did it for me, thank you.

"You are never going to hear Bernie speak if I don't hear silence now," said Johnson, adding later, "Now that you've covered yourself in your white supremacist liberalism, I will formally welcome Bernie Sanders to Seattle."

To sustained boos from the audience that assembled to see Sanders, Johnson demanded that the senator take action on saving black lives and called on him to release his plans to reform policing.

"Bernie Sanders, would you please come over here," she said.

Johnson and Willaford demanded -- and eventually won -- a four-and-a-half-minute-long moment of silence in honor of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by an officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a year ago on Sunday.



When CNN asked about the protesters wanting to hear his criminal justice message, Sanders said, "They didn't want to hear anything."

In a statement to CNN after the event, Seattle's Black Lives Matter chapter said it protested the event because "the problem with Sanders, and with white Seattle progressives in general, is that they are utterly and totally useless (when not outright harmful) in terms of the fight for Black lives."

The statement added: "White progressive Seattle and Bernie Sanders cannot call themselves liberals while they participate in the racist system that claims Black lives."

Will any of the Democrat candidates have the nerve to call these people out for this?

Is this appropriate behavior?  Does it advance the cause?

Like I said above, my Bernie-fan daughter, who would've marched with these people a year ago, is turning against them.  They are losing folks they need.

I wonder if these people were paid by Soros to be there....could be interesting to see if they were and if they had orders to shut down the event.

Well, the Iowa Dems did rename their Jefferson-Jackson dinner, because they can't hold an event named after slaveholders.

I'll stay away from the GOP thread while dewy is attempting his latest hijack attempt. This thread will do.

One of dewy's favorite GOP candidates said over the weekend that if Bernie Sanders, another dewy favorite, won the democrat nomination that the Republicans would win 49 of 50 states. I agree, don't you?
When will hillary come out and make her case for why she should be POTUS? What is Hillarys message anyway?

There's that whining again.  I believe whoever wins the Democrat nominee will win in 2016.  The blue wall.

So how can Kasich be so wrong and you be correct? So much for you and your claim of "look at me, I'm a political junkie". Go Bernie go
We don't need to read about your blue balls

Quite a platform, perfect for the low infos. She may have a chance with that platform. Plus she has dewy on her side and he can sway his Californians to stay blue balls

The blue wall faltered because of a fluke and those dirty ruskies.

Whining is not winning

On a serious question of the day, would one side with pabar or with dewy when analyzing an election or a candidate?

As Bluedog will remind you, I also said there was no way Trump could get the nomination or win.  So you have that.

Considering the epic failure of dewey's 'blue wall' prediction, why does he continue to 'predict' things as if he has any sort of critical reasoning skills? I'm confused.
