More discontent by the Bernie Sanders folks at the Democrat National Committee today amidst the DNC email scandal. The Democrats have already lost control of the event.
Bernie Sanders Supporters Chant ‘Hell No, DNC, We Won’t Vote For Hillary’ Outside of Democratic National Convention (VIDEO)
BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS LOATH HILLARY CLINTON …
In the wake of the DNC email scandal and ahead of the start of the DNC, Bernie Sanders supporters chanted, ‘Hell No, DNC, We Won’t Vote For Hillary’. Bernie Sanders may endorse Hillary Clinton and beg his supporters to vote for Hillary; however, that possibility seems hardly likely. Sanders’ supporters know they were screwed, even if Sanders wants to goose step to Hillary’s beat.
Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia’s sweltering streets Sunday, cheering, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the city wilted during a heat wave.
Throngs of Bernie Sanders supporters marched down a main thoroughfare to show their support of him and disdain for Hillary Clinton ahead of the convention.
Chanting “Hell No, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary” and “This is what democracy looks like,” the marchers headed from City Hall down Broad Street, the main north-south artery that leads from the city center to the convention site about 4 miles away.
BERNIE FEELS THE “BERN” FROM HIS OWN SUPPORTERS …
Today Bernie Sanders learned the difference between an election and a movement. Sanders was booed by his own delegates and supporters as he urged the voters to vote for Hillary Clinton. The crowd wanted no part of it. Sanders supporters are pissed and feel that they had the nomination robbed from them. Guess what, they did. For months Sanders had stated that the system was rigged. Thanks to Wikileaks and the leaked DNC emails, that is exactly what happened. Now that the truth is out, Sanders supporters want their pound of flesh and want no part about hearing they should vote for Hillary. This is what a political movement looks like, its not a BS campaign where one bows down and admits defeat, especially when they probably should never have lost.
Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders booed and jeered when as the Vermont lawmaker and former presidential contender told them, “We must elect Hillary Clinton.”
Appearing for the first time this week in Philadelphia, where the Democratic National Convention kicked off this afternoon, Sanders tried to control the room and his fans.
“Brothers and sisters, this is the real world that we live in,” he said. “[Donald] Trump is a bully and a demagogue. Trump, Trump has made bigotry and hatred the cornerstone of his campaign.”
But the crowd, in the last sign of the party struggling for any sense of unity, chanted, “We want Bernie!”
The LA Times reports that protesters took to the streets outside of a Donald Trump rally in Orange, California. The crowd gathered in the streets outside the OC Fair & Event Center as Trump addressed several thousand supporters at the Center’s amphitheater. As Trump fired up the crowd inside, the crowd outside formed into nothing more than a mob. Freedom of speech is one thing, outright chaos, crime and violence is unacceptable. Many were arrested during the protests by police.
Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.
Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car.
“Dump the Trump,” said one sign. Another protester scrawled anti-Trump messages onto Costa Mesa police cruisers.
“I’m protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest,” said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly Latinos in their late teens and 20s.
“I knew this was going to happen,” Lujan added. “It was going to be a riot. He deserves what he gets.”
Video footage showed some anti-Trump demonstrators hurling debris at a passing pickup. One group of protesters carried benches and blocked the entrance to the 55 Freeway along Newport Boulevard, with some tossing rocks at motorists near the on-ramp.
Lazy, entitled “Fight for 15′ protesters are asked to leave a TACO Bell in Austin, TX where they were hindering someone trying to work ..
What a joke the “Fight for 15″ truly is. If these people actually knew what it was like to work for a living, they might have a shred of credibility. But these entitled, slack-asses would rather protest and interfere with others right to work and do their job. It is an amazing concept that that making the minimum wage do not comprehend the definition of the word minimum. Maybe they should have been paying more attention in school.
A minimum wage was never meant to be a living wage. NEVER! A job with a minimum wage was never meant to be a career nor meant to be a sole full time job for someone who had kids. It was a starter job not something you strive for. The current minimum wage is between $7.25 and $11.00 depending on what state you live in and these clowns want to raise it to $15.00. Really, who thinks that the last person who could not give proper change back at the last fast food restaurant you were in or the lack of courtesy you were provided should have their pay doubled? Just curious … if the minimum pay is made $15, what happens to the people that were making $15/hr, or $20? Are you going to tell em that their wages should not be increased as well where as all of a sudden, people who were only worth $7.25 are now making more they they are truly worth.
A note to the “Fight for 15″ crowd … DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY MIGHT COME TRUE. If this BS is actually passed, all of you making $7.25 will most likely be fired and more competent people worthy of $15/hr will be taking your place. Or, if it were me I would automate the system and completely eliminate your position. How difficult would it be to replace order takers with kiosks both inside and outside to go? And sliding your credit or debit card into a machine to pay like at a gas station? Actually, I am surprised this has not been completely done already.
A group of “Fight for 15” protesters invaded a Taco Bell restaurant in Austin, Texas, on Thursday and invited a worker to go on “strike” to demand more money and better working conditions.
The protesters’ message wasn’t well received by the employee, who said she just wanted to do her job.
After one protester informed her it was a “day of action,” the employee responded sharply, “This is also a job that I am trying to do.”
“Y’all are hindering my work, you may leave the building,” she added.
