Violence at the 1968 Democratic Convention resulted in the election of Republican Richard Nixon -- Sanders' supporters violent behavior at the Nevada Democratic convention -- chairs thrown, vocal threats of violence, vulgar and sexist insults shouted at Democratic leaders -- brought to life images of the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Hardcore Sanders groupies violent actions will cause the demise of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia this summer...thus, handing the Republicans the presidency.

Hardcore Sanders Groupies refuse to accept that the battle for the nomination is lost. At the Nevada Democratic convention, longtime liberal California Senator Barbara Boxer was repeatedly booed and shouted out during her appeals for party unity. A fight literally broke out on the convention floor during the setting of rules regarding the election of 43 delegates with 3 alternates to go to the July 25th national convention in Philadelphia.

Democratic party leaders have blamed the clashes on a "disgruntled group of Sanders supporters" -- the reality is that the final split between the Democratic Party and the Socialist candidate from the hills of Vermont could be televised. The party will not be able to tolerate the ongoing violence that was on display at the Nevada Democratic Convention. The escalating violence of the Sanders' Groupies has created a worse case scenario for Democrats -- Sanders supporters may take to the streets at the Democrat Convention and destroy the chances of presumptive Democrat party nominee, Hillary Clinton winning the general election in the fall.

Bernie Sanders issued an angry response to the chaotic Nevada State Democratic Party convention, denouncing the entire process as illegitimate.“It is imperative that the Democratic leadership, both nationally and in the states, understand that the political world is changing and that millions of Americans are outraged at establishment politics and establishment economics,” Sanders said in a public statement. “The people of this country want a government which represents all of us, not just the 1 percent, super PACs and wealthy campaign contributors.” Worse, Sanders' political advisers are encouraging the supporters to maintain their anger at Wall Street greed and political corruption... but will the party burnout this summer? It’s not clear that the tactic will work beyond a political platform battle in Philadelphia, but it's a very dangerous strategy, that can backfire and change the ultimate outcome in the general election, defeating the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.

Is this the chaotic anger of the 1968 Democratic convention..... one more time?
