Its a clinton tactic. I bet you they are getting paid by the clinton camp.


You know, I think you may be onto something. I don't know if it was Clinton or the GOP ... but my spidey senses tell me someone was behind this.

I'm utterly delighted to see this. They're showing up Bernie for what he is. An old white man who doesn't get it.


What do you know about Bernie Sanders aside from him being an "old white man"? Do you know anything about what he stands for? Do you know his voting record?

- Voted NO on ending preferential treatment by race in college admissions.
- Rated 93% by the ACLU, indicating a pro-civil rights voting record.
- Rated 97% by the NAACP, indicating a pro-affirmative-action stance.
- Voted to recognize Juneteenth as historical end of slavery.
- Voted to re-introduce the Equal Rights Amendment.

He may end up being the most powerful man on Earth in little over a year from now and he's a staunch ally for black civil interests and equality in general.

What they did at his rally went completely against their own interests.

Or maybe what they did at his rally exposes what their real true interests are, hate whitey.

Bernie is the ONLY candidate who has discussed his support for BLM. Bernie has 50 years of civil rights activity and marched with MLK. What does he not get?

These obnoxious women rushed the stage uninvited, demanded to talk, were offered accommodations to speak after Bernie, responded by saying "don't tell me what to do" and were then allowed to speak after making an ass of themselves. Are you sure you're perception has not been manipulated?

yep, something is defiantly fishy when the one guy who repeatedly shows his support, and has a strong history within the civil rights movement is the one guy that has had this happen multiple times. It makes no sense. If it's not uninformed people it's defiantly a ploy to build a false impression that Bernie is not on their side.

The Facebook page of the interrupters was only made yesterday, and they've been liking things related to Hillary, but that could be a GOP smoke screen. There was a longer existing BLM Seattle page that denounced these women. it stinks. COINTELPROish.

I look at this similarly as I did regarding Occupy Wall Streeter's (OWS) when Ron Paul rallies were going on back in 2012 at the same time OWS was. Paul constantly got heckled by that group when they really never did entirely understand that he was their loudest voice. You could talk for hours to those people, but they REFUSED to listen to reason no matter what was said.

People get on bandwagons and trends, and those same people don't even understand what they are bitching about. Maybe only "4" people participated in this recent heckle, but it just shows how ignorant people loudly proclaiming their "cause" really are in America. We had a similar heckle on the socialist Bernie not too long ago. Some people just want to bitch about something, without understanding their own demands, and I think this group is way bigger than 4 people.

I think the real numbers are in the millions, including ALL bandwagoners who just want to seem trendy, so that they can appear smart, and feel smart. When in reality, they are the dumbest mofos in America. People love feeling important, and they couldn't care less if they know all the facts first.

With that said, I am totally against socialism and Bernie Sanders, but damn, people need to understand what the Hell it is they are complaining about before they decide to be dicks in public. There are a LOT of morons like this in America, not just these "4" idiots.

He's an old white guy with money and like any racist that's all they see...

not that they could possibly be prejudiced and ignorant bigots...

I mean, only white males can be that...

All it takes to be a hateful bigot of any ethnicity is to judge people not by the merits of who they are, but a couple superficial traits...

No one would dare call these protestors that did this bigots, it's perfectly reasonable for them to do this with NO CLUE who they were being pricks too...

He is not a guy with money; I am not even a Bernie Sanders fan however he is not wealthy.

...and yes there are just as many bigots on each side of the fence.

Most of you might be happy to know that at his next speaking engagement in Seattle the same day, 15,000 showed to hear him speak -- uninterrupted, this time.

Just look at what happened to the Occupy movement. It's not hard to discredit a movement via infiltration. Anyone can claim to be part of such a movement and claim to be speaking or acting on behalf of a movement. It doesn't make it true.

I was one of the organizers for my local Occupy Chapter at the same time I volunteered for Ron Pauls Campaign. At least in my city, most of the people involved in my local Occupy were also Ron Paul supporters. You should have seen the sheer number of Ron Paul signs at the Occupy protests. However, we had a handful of Ron Paul supporters that sought heavily to distance themselves from the Occupy movement.

The large number of Ron Paul supporters we had show up to the protests, let alone the sheer number that came to hear him speak when he made an appearance, is why I will never believe my local election results.

Yep, the Blm movement are killing themselves due to un-warranted ignorance. And I believe there are millions on the left who will continue to play the race card to kill their party once and for all eventually....

At the same time, we have this whole Trump debacle. Trump is a douchebag, but he says what he wants to say, and he leaves "PC" out of everything, and that's just about the ONLY good point the man has. Yet, the rebublicans are in a frenzy over it. The same kind of frenzy the left is now in when people heckle their socialist man Bernie for all the wrong reasons.

I see both sides in a frenzy right now, and it's EXACTLY what TPTB want. Division is everywhere right now. As someone who watched the 2012 debacle happen in real time, every single damn day, against my chosen guy Ron Paul, I can only find this humorous. We all saw this happen at the most disgusting levels, but the majority sat there and did nothing. NOTHING.

I will sit back this time and watch the utter chaos about to unfold. Then, everyone will sit there and bark, moan and complain about how corrupt the media is, while nothing is done about it. America deserves what it gets here. No-one stood up when it was obvious, now it is blatant and obvious, even the puntits don't care. So now we get what we have allowed to be sowed.

All Hell will break lose and the people won't have any say whatsoever. Grats! We earned this one as a whole, and we will soon understand what that feels like.

This is a shoutout to all the idiot dumbass people who didn't see it from the beginning. 2016 and beyond will be a time most people will regret. A time where we all knew we could have done something prior but didn't due to pure stupidity, bandwagoning, and the desire to look cool regarding things we had absolutely no clue about.

Good luck all you know-it-alls! Hope things work out for all of you morons!

Meanwhile, the truly smart people will be figuring out ways to get as far from this situation as possible by relying on themselves and the land. Government is done!

I can't claim to know exactly what you are talking about, but I can only assume you are among the morons who fought against the only voice of whom actually had your back. OWS was a "trendy" statement in 20112 preaching against the "99%", and Ron Paul always did and always will fight against those elite bastards you hate so much. If your local Paul supporters were against "OWS" then perhaps they had a good reason to be against them. In 2012, most of those "trends" could kiss the ass of Paul supporters. Cause they had no idea what they were talking about, and most were Obama loving/worshiping liberals.

Excuse me? Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I was active in both OWS and Campaigned for Ron Paul. At least in my city, most OWS were Ron Paul supporters. Sure, there were some Obama supporters in our ranks, but not many.

I know this didn't happen across country, but aside from a few Paul supporters that feared involvement with Occupy, and the few Obama supporters , or local Occupy and Ron Paul group were practically made up of all the same members.

Hope this makes sense, I took a sleeping pill that is now taking effect.

Well that was the stupidest thing I have ever seen.

BLM should do their homework. Talk about making asses out of themselves. I couldn't believe it, not helping their cause much, didn't anybody in their group know who Bernie Sander is. Sheeeesh!

BLACK LIVES MATTER SABOTAGING BERNIE SANDERS CAMPAIGN



Possible COINTELPRO operation to destroy Sanders?




Black Lives Matter protesters have yet to shut down a Hillary Clinton political event or those of her Republican rivals. Instead they have targeted Sanders, by far the most liberal candidate with an ideological stance that would seemingly appeal to the Black Lives Matter movement.





The Sanders Threat

The establishment considers Bernie Sanders a threat to the campaign of one of their preferred candidates: Hillary Clinton.

“Sanders — a self-described democratic socialist — has seen his crowds swell and is gaining ground in the polls on the formidable Democratic front-runner, Hillary Rodham Clinton. In New Hampshire, where Sanders was on yet another weekend swing, one survey last week showed him within 8 percentage points of Clinton,” The Washington Post reported in June.

The fear is Sanders will win the crucial Iowa and New Hampshire primaries and trounce the establishment’s carefully groomed candidate.

“If Sanders continues to build his momentum and cut into Clinton’s lead, and she gets sidetracked by controversy (typically a given when a Clinton is on the ballot), it is not inconceivable that Sanders could win one or both of the two first states,” Bloomberg notes.

In order to prevent this possibility the establishment is likely engaged in underhanded tactics to derail the Sanders campaign, including using DHS, the FBI and their corporate partners to sow chaos into the campaign.

Black Lives Matters would do well to associate itself with the Sanders campaign and glean political advantage for its socialist agenda. Instead, it is doing the opposite by interrupting Sanders’ campaign events and portraying itself as a disruptive and threatening political force.



The utter stupidity of so called Black Lives matter disturbing someone who is sympathetic to their cause is mind boggling and demonstrates that this organization is nothing but a bunch of ignorant kids or a group being used by some sinister force as this article suggests.


Did MLK or Malcolm X protest against their political allies? NO!

How stupid can this group get

Look how weak and meek Bernie is.

He wants to run our country but just got bulldozed by a few activists


I don't see a man like that getting anything done in office.
