GREEN BAY - There is little doubt that something went on at the Nevada 2016 State Democratic Convention on May 14th in Vas Vegas. The question is what? Exactly?
State Party Chair Roberta Lange claims the Sanders supporters in attendance were threatening and abusive. So much so that she feared for her safety. The national talk media, as in CNN and MSNBC, hyped the drama into "death threats" and riots equaling the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, "fearing" a split in the party worse than the Republicans and Donald Trump.
As the drama bloomed on TV, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was quick to side with Lange and painted the Sanders camp as the instigators of alleged violence. She called for an apology from Bernie Sanders.
The Bernie side was quick to point out what appeared to be controversial decisions by Lange during voice voting on motions. They say the truth is whatever happened wasn't caused by those who attended.
As is often the case today, we have to turn to YouTube to try and piece together the truth. Below is one clip by the self proclaimed "progressive movement" side that will lead you to several others that explore this issue.
