It is like a session with the New Left from the '60s...

...which probably explains Sanders' spineless reaction.

Shot: "Event organizers allowed the period of silence, as some in the large crowd booed and shouted for the protesters to leave the stage. Afterward, Marissa Janae Johnson, who identified herself as a leader of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Seattle, asked the crowd to “join us now in holding Bernie Sanders accountable for his actions.” She motioned for Sanders to join her at the microphone."

Chaser:"The Black Lives Matter arm of the SJW is successfully performing like a small pack of wolves who have found the weak bison in the herd. They have learned that Sanders has a weak team and no stomach for a confrontation and can be bullied into silence as they advance their agenda. Sanders had a huge crowd at the first event who were obviously there to see and hear him and were disgruntled when he was denied the chance to speak. Yet he let them down and ran away from a confrontation with a few agitators. This is a leader? This is what inspires a nation to follow you into the future?

The agenda at the second, larger event speaks volumes also. Sanders came with his own program of topics, wishing to speak about the the anniversary of Social Security, the minimum wage, family leave and programs to “improve the lot of the working class.” Yet he had to highlight his new National Press Secretary and make absolutely sure everyone knew she was black. Then, each and every speaker – including the Senator – had to mouth the catch phrase “black lives matter” over and over just to make sure that his own event wasn’t shut down by malcontents.

Bernie Sanders has demonstrated that he can’t even lead one of his own rallies, say nothing of the nation. He is currently little more than a hostage to a small group of activists who, spotting a target who can easily be bullied, are following him from event to event and dictating his behavior. If you try that at a Chris Christie rally you are told to sit down and shut up. When Sanders comes to town you can kick him around like a tin can. And now that the precedent has been set, it will be all the harder for Bernie to regain control of his message. It’s a sad spectacle to behold."

We are fools being led by knaves.

"We are fools being led by knaves."

As long as you include the Republicans along with the Democrats under the moniker "knaves" then I agree with you. However, your whole blog smells of knee-jerk support for the party that birthed Trump.
