"“Let her speak or we shut it down!” one activist yelled."

I love how Democrat candidates are getting bullied by their even crazier constituents.

//When the crowd asked the activists to allow Sanders to speak, one activist called the crowd “white supremacist liberals,” according to event participants.

After waiting about 20 minutes, Sanders himself was pushed away when he tried to take the microphone back.

Instead, he waved goodbye, left the stage with a raised fist salute and waded into the crowd. He shook hands and posed for photos with supporters for about 15 minutes, and then left.

The rally at Westlake Park was organized as a birthday celebration for Social security, Medicare and Medicaid.

It’s not the first time that Black Lives Matter activists disrupt the Vermont senator’s event. At a town hall for Democratic presidential candidates in Phoenix last month, protesters affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement took over the stage and disrupted an interview with Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.//

I mean it is bad for democracy and civil discourse and the order necessary to accomplish anything worth accomplishing.

And it resembles nothing more than Storm Trooper tactics.

But since it is happening to Democrats, then maybe there is a chance that the opinion-makers will decide that enough is enough.

Here's hoping.
