Check out what Barbara Boxer had to say about the dissent in Nevada;
“I was not able to stop these people for doing what they did,” Boxer, a Hillary Clinton supporter, told CNN. “Apparently they’ve done it before. …. This group of about 100 were very vocal, and I can’t describe it — disrespectful doesn’t even explain it, it was worse than that.”
That sure sounds like “round ’em up” to me. It seems the senator is more used to people just falling in line. She doesn’t like that the Bernie people aren’t rolling over after so many wins in so many states. Don’t these people know their place?
The establishment just can’t believe that anyone would question them. They are shocked. Where is the rank and file loyalty? (Fear.) Where are the rubber stamps? The Democratic Party is a machine and one can’t have the cogs acting on their own.
But Sanders’ statement Tuesday was defiant, saying that the Democratic Party “has a choice: It can open its doors and welcome into the party” his backers or “maintain its status quo.”“At (the Nevada) convention, the Democratic leadership used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place,” said Sanders, adding that there have been “zero reports” of violence during his massive rallies across the country.
Asked to respond Tuesday afternoon, Reid was angry, telling CNN it a “silly statement” that “someone else prepared for him.”“Bernie should say something — not have some silly statement,” Reid said. “Bernie is better than that. … I’m surprised by his statement. I thought he was going to do something different.”
Fundamentally everyone in Democratic Party leadership thought 2016 was going to be a coronation. But then the peasants revolted.
Off with their ‘eads!
