1. What exactly, without commentary, bias, etc., was the leadership doing that

the Bernie folks were upset about?

Were they not allowing a vote on something?

7. The credentials committee made up of equal number of clinton and sanders supporters

announced that the clinton supporters outnumbers the sanders supporters by about 30 delegates.

Note that the credential committee excluded both clinton and sanders delegates using the same rules.
And that 85% of the excluded sanders delegates didn't contest it most probably because they didn't have a leg to stand on.

2. So the Sanders supporters basically blames the bad behavior on people only having access to a bar.

So this is all another alcohol-related incident?

5. This convention footage...

is contrary to everything being put out by Bernie supporters now - "since there is no footage."

If I were standing on the stage, and saw that chair up in the air and that foul ruckus, you'd bet I'd think it had devolved to petulant chair-throwing!

And MSNBC has the footage!

12. inevitable conclusion to a chair being brandished in the air

I wonder if it has occurred to anyone that the person who saw the cair in the air didn't rush off to alert security and didn't stay to see the inevitable conclusion to a chair brandished threateningly high in the air....... that of the perpetrator being talked down and given a big ol' hug. Yep who would know how that would end.

15. It wasn't a made-up fiction.

There was a basis to the initial accusation of "chairs being thrown" and the threat of violence - and the fear some felt.

This kind of belligerence started at the caucus, carried through the district county conventions and culminated at the state convention.

Now they want to carry it to the national convention.

9. And, I wouldn't describe what ...

 

the person that took the chair from the guy, did as "giving him a hug" ... It looked to me to be him restraining the guy.

8. They could have simply said...

"Come on, folks! It's a weekend in Vegas!"

We'd have understood!

But no - denial, mistreatment, rigged party, "she must die," fire DWS, national corruption, big buts from the candidate!

You know what? It still sounds like explaining a very bad weekend in Vegas!

11. Well, that was wicked Clinton's plan all along. Set 3 bar JUST for Sander supporters,

Get them drunk so they'd cause chaos and mayhem...

Is there no limit to that woman's evilness?

14. Next convention put some 12-step programs in the convention center

So the participants who can't control their drinking have an...outlet.

And what was that woman babbling about? Petitions?

13. The Nevada fracas and Sanders' indifference...

... have been all over the news for days. It didn't have much effect on OR or KY (too soon?), but I'm willing to bet that he'll start losing support as a result. In three weeks' time (June 7), he's gonna be dealt a major defeat.
