First John Lewis, now Dolores Huerta.

I am in disbelief at the tone deaf response to minorities from Sanders supporters.

1. Buzzfeed has 2 neutral unaffiliated sources confirming

LAS VEGAS — On Saturday, Bernie Sanders supporters chanted “English only!” at a longtime labor and Latina activist, two neutral sources unaffiliated with either campaign told BuzzFeed News.

17. This is what's disturbing about the Bernie campaign. So many of them would be supporting...

Ron Paul (if he were running), and would just as easily support Trump if the call-ins to NPR are representative. That disturbs me because these aren't people who are traditionally interested in, or sensitive to the rights of minorities & women.

3. The hate is awful.

I honestly don't know what all of these "class warriors" think they are doing.

8. I really wish Bernie would speak out

He is not responsible for all his supporters but he can certainly let them all know that this behavior is way, way out of bounds.

18. At this point I've stopped believing Bernie Sanders

The whole campaign looks like something the KGB would have cooked up, from the front groups like the Bernie Bros and the Nader Nurses to the disinformation against Hillary.

9. Sanders supporters are either blind to the bigotry or just choose to ignore it

Shouting people down won't win people over to your side. If they listened once in a while and demonstrated some empathy, they could start to bridge some of the demographic gaps among Bernie's supporters.

Instead they would rather blame an abstract establishment or chalk it up to a complex conspiracy. It's easier for them to blame others rather than looking in the mirror and trying to figure out why Sanders isn't able to attract the Obama coalition.

10. There's a lengthening thread in GDP

about this incident. They don't even know who Dolores Huerta is.

I can say with confidence, though, that this will cost Sanders votes.

While that doesn't bother me, this--this slamming a greet civil rights leader, another one,is terrible.

15. It's horrifying

The racism that's becoming evident from some "fervent" supporters is beyond the pale. I agree with everyone else. If Bernie doesn't tell them STFU on this and the misogyny, he's ALLOWING it.
