The fault lines in the Democratic Party first appeared during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last year.
After Wikileaks exposed that the DNC rigged the primary for Clinton over Sanders, all hell broke loose. Younger members of the Democratic Party shouted down speakers the entire convention, while those on stage looked ready to snap. At one point, liberal Sarah Silverman did snap, yelling at the Sanders protesters, “You’re being ridiculous!”
Those same fractures were felt again this weekend when protesters rattled a California party convention over the issue of free healthcare.
The left has bred a culture of entitlement for decades, constantly telling their supporters that the government should take care of their every need. Sanders tapped into this entitlement mentality beautifully, promising Democrats a socialist utopia where everything from healthcare to college would be free.
Even though Sanders lost, his vision remains, especially with the younger crowd. These Sanders disciples will now harass any politician, Republican or Democrat, who doesn’t share their ideology.
Now it seems that some Democrats are getting pretty tired of it.
From The Daily Wire:
When California liberals demanding universal health care marched from the state Capitol over to a party convention this weekend, and then mercilessly heckled top party leaders, state party Chairman John Burton got fed up.
“Shut the f*ck up or go outside,” Burton yelled into a microphone at the convention center. “That’s really very controversial. I mean, let’s disrupt something for health care for all. I mean, that’s really a good f*cking way to get something done,” said Burton, 84.
The ancient Burton even spouted a “back in my day” line to the young protesters, chastising them by saying. “there’s some people who have been fighting for that issue before you guys were born. You ought to get on with it.”
The protesters then started chanting “Hey hey, ho ho, corporate Dems have got to go,” while waving their signs.
Burton was not amused, and said, “Put your f*cking sign down, man, we’re all for it. Jesus Christ.”
It’s difficult to imagine a Republican politician making such comments, but this type of trashy profanity is second nature to progressives, who stake their identity on being morally bankrupt.
Still, it’s very satisfying watching Burton become unhinged by the monster he helped create.
The last card these washed up Democrats have to play is Trump. By continuing to drum up hatred against the president, they can keep their followers in line.
In fact, Burton’s closed his speech by flipping off the crowd and yelling, “F*ck Trump!”
That line turned the crowd’s boos into cheers, proving the left can still play their supporters like a fiddle.
