Has Bernie made any statement or comments about the violence at the Nevada Convention?

I've done a couple of searches, but haven't found anything on his website or in the news.

1. He sanctioned his attorneys to file charges, according to Nina Turner.

 

That is what you do. What's to say? The lawyers need to get the facts first. Bernie is very cool headed, methodical. Just like a President should be!

3. He has stated... He was cheated, picked on, abused on so many states he lost. This one, silence. Why

 

Why on this, is he not jumping on the band wagon claiming he is being picked on. So what he goes for.

He is silent because he knows he has a hand in it. He knows he helped to create this. He KNOWS it is wrong in every way and he is keeping himself apart from it to not taint himself.

My theory.

10. So, this didn't happen?

The allegation is the latest fallout from a divisive Nevada Democratic convention that had to be shut down because security at the Paris Las Vegas hotel could no longer ensure order on Saturday night. The gathering closed with some Sanders supporters throwing chairs; later, some made death threats against state party chairwoman Roberta Lange.

Which will be investigated surely... but you've got nothing on the alleged "violence"...
Sounds like propaganda to me.

20. Threats are violence just FYI.

Sure it isn't physical, but it's certainly emotional violence.

This event won't change the outcome of the primary, but it certainly isn't a bright spot in history.

I guess I expect too much.

MALE CALLER: Hi Roberta Lange. This is a citizen of the United States of America and I just wanted to let you know that I think people like you should be hung in a public execution to show this world that we wonít stand for this sort of corruption. I donít know what kind of money they are paying to you, but I donít know how you sleep at night. You are a sick, twisted piece of shit and I hope you burn for this! You can return my call at ***-***-****. Iíd love to go into further detail with you about this, though I am sure you donít have courage to do so. You cowardless bitch, running off the stage! I hope people find you.


That's violence.

My speaking out against them do not make them so. I assume these threats will be investigated and dealt with appropriately as they should.

31. Terroristic? Stop making deliberatly false comments like that.

By the way, you can just own that absolute mockery of democracy called the NV State Democratic Convention since you and all the other HillBill supporters have not decried the unprecedented shenanigans that Clinton, Reid, Lange and others cooked up and pulled there. BRAVO for you!

32. It's hardly a false statement.

Several U.S. states have enacted statutes which impose criminal liability for terroristic threatening or making a terroristic threat.[1] "A terroristic threat is a threat to commit a crime of violence or a threat to cause bodily injury to another person and terrorization as the result of the proscribed conduct."[2]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terroristic_threat


It is taken quite seriously in Arkansas, where I live.

34. No. It is NOT applicable in this situation where a threat is made against a singular person

without an explicit/implied threat against a population of people.

You don't get to use words that have specific meanings, simply to smear Sanders Supporters because you're mad Sanders is still in the race opposing YOUR candidate.

35. Let's get a couple of things straight. Yes, I am supporting Hillary, but I have not posted a single

negative statement about Bernie. If he were to win the nomination, I would vote for him in the GE. If he wants to stay in the race until the convention, that is his decision. I have made no calls for him to drop out.

With that in mind, I would like to know his positions on various issues, including his reaction to the behavior of his supporters. I don't know how you would inflate that to a smear, but then I don't know you at all. You are free to draw your own conclusions.

36. Yes it is a false statement. Lange lives in Nevada, not Arkansas. The FBI's definition applies to

her case, not YOUR state law.

The definition of terrorizing has always included the requirement that it involve violence/possbility of violence to a larger population. If it didn't, there would be no difference between terrorism and a run of the mill threat or act of violence.

By the way, your link to Akansas' statutes does not provide the definition of "terrorizing". You need the definition's section of that statute to establish credibility for even that part of your post.

25. Yes they are.

Everyday here on MIRT we ban DTG here at DU, and we do it because threats of violence are *NOT OKAY*.

But hey if death threats are okay maybe we should just let him/her/it in.

Sorry... I've got better standards than to allow that to stand unchecked.

Because I said your false equivalence between threats and actual violence are bullshit you think I am OK with threats? I said they needed to be investigated and dealt with as all threats do but they are NOT actual violence.

38. In all the dozens of videos I have found on the net, not 1 depicts any violence

nor chairs being thrown around. And the convention was filmed, from start to finish even, by one reporter.

I would label this as a false claim at this point.

37. The "violence" is a man raising a chair but he was stopped by Bernie Supporters...

and hugged. They literally "hugged him down" from the event. He was just so frustrated at the injustice, of Roberta Lange's intentionally ignoring the dissenting (majority) voice votes, and he acted out. That wasn't right, but his act is understandable given the broader context.

Aren't Hillary supporters, by characterizing this man's act as "violence" tacitly condoning Roberta Lange's strong-arm tactics?
