Wood-stock is coming.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuSUpqdYV-I

This isn't about a candidate, it's about a young generation that has seen what Europe has and wants it. It's a side effect of the technology age.(comparison of countries) It was bound to happen. This will grow. I doubt it will end when Bernie drops out. We will have this problem until things change. Riots, crowds at the White House steps, demonstrations, all make change happen in America. Nothing else will. These are the 99%er and more. I don't think Bernie has any control of it either.

I'm unsure what Hilary will do with this. It seems foreign to her but it shouldn't. It's the same way blacks and women achieved change and she runs on both of those premises. Why she acts clueless I don't know.

Agreed. People who are paying for all of the Politico handouts that keep the Politicos and their Oligarchical Matters in power have had it. It is affecting everyone in different ways. Lower paying jobs. Job insecurity. Higher rents for smaller places. Underfunded pensions. Dying school systems. Toxic water. Longer working hours. Longer commutes. Poor food quality. And on and on and on. And for what? To make the top 1% wealthier??

It's not going to end with this election. The revolt against the Vietnam War was child's play compared to this. Why? Because the Oligarchy has attacked the Middle Class and no Quisling whether it be Clinton or Obama is going to quiet the angry middle class. The Parasitical Liberals want Clinton? They are fermenting Trumps or worse.

These people want distribution of wealth, a non profit healthcare system, time off work, and a more even playing field against large corporations. They are set to achieve it like those crowds of people who achieved the "New Deal."
It's the only way to achieve change in a capitalist society, and they are a determined group.
Unemployed Councils, Eviction Riots, and the New Deal | The Economic Populist

It will be interesting to see what transpires from this crowd. I think Bernie just gave them the platform to make their noise on. When he's gone they will just find another, and another, until they see the change they seek.

Hillary's vote total in KY was way below her win in 2008:

KENTUCKY FREE FALL: Hillary Loses Quarter of a Million Votes from Her 2008 Primary Win

....speaks to her possible turnout problems in the general.

Clinton is wishing for a kumbaya moment so she can stroll into the White House and earn her next $153M from Wall Street. It ain't going to happen. She and her Stooge Boxer are just beginning to realize it. I'm a lifelong Democrat who gave up when Obama handed out $trillions to Wall Street and the Pharmaceuticals. I'll do everything I can to make sure that Clinton loses. In Dante's Inferno there is a special place in Hell for traitors.

Progressives cater to these demented malcontents and then act surprised when these social misfits do what comes naturally to them... violence and destruction.

Karma.

Being tolerant and inclusive and open to change is not catering. And we badly need change right now. Those "conservatives" who voted for Cruz are asking for nothing different than those who voted for Clinton. Sanders supporters are looking for action not political chicanery.

These "demented malcontents" as you call them are the youth of America, your country. They constitute a real threat because they are not weighed down with responsibility like older people. They can't be controlled as easily as they are not yet burdened by the free market with two or three kids and a 60 hour a week job. They have the time to stage protests, and disrupt society. I have a feeling the White House will be quite annoyed by this crowd in the coming years.

They were so rude to Barbara Boxer. They wouldn't let her speak. Bernie has had contempt for the Democratic party for many years so he must be enjoyed this.

I just hope the videos of Bernie supporters disrespecting Sen Boxer are shown all over California where she is respected for being a very progressive leader. For 33 years she fought for liberal causes and probably would have been re-elected. Shame of them.

They were apparently unaware that Boxer is a fellow Bolshevik.
