‘Berners’ With Bullhorns Take Their Bernie War to the Homes of Opponents

‘Berners’ With Bullhorns Take Their Bernie War to the Homes of Opponents

As if Bernie Bros were not bad enough, Berners are taking it to a new low, and not surprisingly, some of them are fanatical anti-Israel activists schooled in disruption and harassment.

Over the last month or so, momentum has shifted to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Other Democratic candidates, their surrogates, and some in the MSM have amplified their criticisms of the belligerent behavior of some of his more rabid supporters known as “Bernie Bros.”

The issue even came up during the Las Vegas debate a week ago. Here’s how Sanders responded when asked about it by MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson:

SANDERS: We have over 10.6 million people on Twitter, and 99.9 percent of them are decent human beings, are working people, are people who believe in justice, compassion, and love. And if there are a few people who make ugly remarks, who attack trade union leaders, I disown those people. They are not part of our movement.

But let me also say what I hope my friends up here will agree with is that if you look at the wild west of the internet, talk to some of the African-American women on my campaign. Talk to Senator Nina Turner. Talk to others and find the vicious, racist, sexist attacks that are coming their way, as well.

So I would hope that all of us understand that we should do everything we possibly can to end the viciousness and ugliness on the internet. Our campaign is about issues. It’s about fighting for the working families and the middle class. It is not about vicious attacks on other people.

The problem with Sanders’ answer is that it’s a complete whitewash of how his more militant supporters act on his behalf. The issues do not just happen on Twitter and other social media platforms. It happens offline and in real life. On the streets – including at the homes of DNC officials.

Politico reported several recent incidents on Wednesday. These obsessive supporters of Sanders have shown up at the private homes of DNC officials in the middle of the night. They showed up with bullhorns, blinding flashlights, and cellphone video cameras rolling, to confront them and warn them that they do not want another 2016:

The night before the Nevada caucuses, the chairman of the state’s Democratic Party called police after several supporters of Bernie Sanders gathered outside his home at 11 p.m. with a bullhorn to issue a warning about the next day’s election.

“I want assurances that there isn’t going to be any shenanigans going on tomorrow. The Democratic Party does not control what happens,” Maria Estrada, a self-described “Berner” from Los Angeles, said into the bullhorn, according to a Facebook Live video she streamed on her personal page. She repeatedly said she didn’t want to see a repeat of the 2016 election, which she insinuated was rigged against Sanders.

At least three other times in recent days, Estrada led a group of Sanders supporters who gathered late at night outside the homes of Democratic Party officials and California lawmakers, including those of Secretary of State Alex Padilla and state Democratic Party Chairman Rusty Hicks. Police were called at least twice.

Watch videos of two separate instances below. The first one is from Nevada, and the second is from California:

When asked about the incidents, Estrada told Politico, “Protesting is our right — whether they called the police or not is irrelevant.” She stated that she nor those involved with these incidents are not working in any official capacity for the Sanders campaign.

Nevada party chairman William McCurdy confronted Estrada and others who showed up at his home, according to Politico, telling them they had “crossed a line.” Estrada, who is a candidate for the California state assembly, reportedly told McCurdy that “If any bullshit happens tomorrow the only person who crossed the line is you.”

For the record, Estrada also happens to be an anti-Semite:

As annoying as Pete Buttigieg can often be, he had an excellent response to Sanders on the issue of the “Bernie Bros” from that Nevada debate:

But leadership is about what you draw out of people. It’s what — it’s about how you inspire people to act.

And right now, we’re in this toxic political environment. Leadership isn’t just about policy. I think at least in broad terms, we’re largely pulling in the same direction on policy, but leadership is also about how you motivate people to treat other people.

I think you have to accept some responsibility and ask yourself what it is about your campaign in particular that seems to be motivating this behavior more than others …

To be sure, Estrada and those who have marched with her are personally responsible for their own actions. But look at the people in the Democratic party. Some people encourage confrontations. They have an angry socialist candidate like Bernie Sanders who animatedly preaches about “revolutions” in the streets and praises murderous dictators like Fidel Castro. Therefore, attempting to intimidate and terrorize people at their homes to get their way comes with the territory in the minds of Resistance types.

Politico also reported that the Sanders campaign condemned reports of the Nevada and California incidents, but don’t expect Estrada and company to back off of their tactics any time soon, mainly if the delegate race stays close and the primary process continues for months. As one analyst predicted the night of the South Carolina debate, if Bernie Sanders’ supporters don’t ultimately get their way, they might “burn this party to the ground”:

As they say, stay tuned.

Until Bernie’s Tools encounter some real pushback why would they stop? The other Dems should have gutted Sanders long ago.

We may need to colonize other planets just to grow the popcorn this election year is calling for.

You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.

    There’s nothing like the smell of boiling frog in the morning.

    Not a single mainstream media outlet, despite their anti-Bernie stance for their party, have pointed out what this blog has….that even his bragtopia nation of Sweden has called Bernie too much of an old school Russian-style communist!

    I wonder why that is? Could it be because they don’t want to set off our alarm bells and get us alerted against their slow burn to tyranny?

      Could just be that Sweden, despite their reputation, more resembles the US – a market based economy saddled with an outrageously huge welfare system and confiscatory tax structure.

    Nikita, baby! Whassup! They tole us you was hung!

    By all accounts, this is a quote that was never made, just made up. Sorry.

So encouraging to see Estrada take the time and on her own dime to cross state lines to help assure fair voting occurred. So spontaneous … So democratic…so revolutionary.

Interestingly, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Castro all adamantly denied the existence of their death squads. Please, Little Bernouts, I’m begging you to come to my house. I’ll even leave the door unlocked…

Remember when Democrats SCREAMED for Trump to disavow Richard Spencer? Somebody whose support he explicitly never wanted?

Bernie is being a typical Democrat scumbag.

Notice he DOES NOT say that they’re wrong for doing this.

    ….And he’s being a typical Media Scumbag
    (anyone appearing in Media Scumbag Shows IS Media)…….

I can’t wait to see the civil chaos after the dems deny Bernie the nomination. It will be epic.

Protesting is our right
No, it is NOT. Your rights include “peaceable assembly” and “petition”, NOT “protesting” in the sense you’re using it.

Of course, a Bernie supporter not understanding constitutional rights is not really a surprise….

    Totalitarians and sociopaths have the right to do whatever they want. Their targets have the right to choose submission or destruction. Ask them.

    Damn that 2nd Amendment think they.

    OrJustThink in reply to GWB. | February 29, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – Amendment 1

    Its in the constitution. For now, anyways.

Yeah, I can definitely see Bernie’s supporters being very calm, rational and understanding after he’s denied the nomination.

Some of the vile, Jew-hating remarks spewed by this despicable bigot, Estrada, to a Jewish Democrat in California:

[You need to keep] “your party, your religion and your people in check.”

“Anyone who believes they are one of ‘God’s chosen people’ automatically feels superior and justified in all they do.”

——————-

If a Republican had made these remarks about a Muslim, he/she would have been rightfully and promptly castigated and criticized, but, Jews are now fair game for the hate-filled Dhimmi-crats to vilify, insult and slander, in the most vicious and unfair manner, without the Dhimmis coming under any scintilla of criticism or condemnation. That’s where we are, in America, in the 21-century, courtesy of these miserable reprobates.

The hate-filled Dhimmis now resemble nothing so much as German National Socialists in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

    Remember that the Nazi were bosom buddy Allies of the Muslims….

    “Jews are now fair game for the hate-filled Dhimmi-crats to vilify, insult and slander”

    I have limited sympathy. Vote the wind, reap the whirlwind. They also are a major cultural force behind citizen disarmament activism. Hope that combination works out well for them, but I’ll be someplace far away, cleaning my modern sporting rifles.

      guyjones in reply to henrybowman. | February 28, 2020 at 7:47 pm

      There are plenty of conservative American Jews who don’t share your assessment.

      I’ll concede that a majority of American Jews vote Dhimmi-crat, but, your sweeping them all into one ideological bucket is presumptuous and unfair. American Jews are not a monolithic voting bloc, any more than Christians at-large, are. If you don’t make generalizations about the latter, don’t make generalizations about the former. It’s obnoxious to do so.

      And, we don’t ask for your, nor do we want, your “sympathy.”

      guyjones in reply to henrybowman. | February 28, 2020 at 7:50 pm

      And,lastly, singling Jews out as being behind anti-Second-Amendment activism, exclusively, is a bigoted and stupid comment. As if no Christian Dhimmi-crats have supported or joined this effort.

      Get real.

      You sound like an embittered Goebbels.

Interesting. Violence and rage right under the surface.

Yup, nothing like good old rational, civil political discourse and exchange of ideas

In fact, nothing at all like it, to be exact.

As the heat is turned up, all sorts of critters come crawling out of the woodwork.

0.1% of 10.6 million is 106 people who he does not categorize as “decent human beings”. Aside from the questioning of what is the basis of that estimate (I suspect pulled from thin air or other regions), that is a non-trivial number.

All my fellow GOP voters in IL open primary be sure to request a Dem ballot and vote for Bernie.

I love to watch the left eat itself.

This is why I have outdoor speakers. I can pump out soundtracks of all sorts of firearms, from shotguns to AKs to 30mm cannons. If that doesn’t scare ’em off, well, they’re stupid.

I read today that Bernie Sanders and Col Sanders are first cousins. If Bernie gets the nomination, KFC is coming out with a new flavor – The Bern! It’s made from 100% chicken poop, with 57 herbs and spices to hide the flavor, and it’ll be free.

This will seem pretty tame compared with next week when they start showing up with torches.

I hadn’t heard Bernie actually speak before the recent debate foodfight. I can’t imagine a universe in which he’d get more than a fringe vote in a national election. His insistence that Castro had some virtues because of a literacy program is like someone arguing that the Nazis weren’t all that bad because they were the snazziest dressers of the era. That’s serous “WTF?” stuff.

It’s important to return the favor: photograph these people, use facial recognition to identify them and file a police report, a restraining order and sue them.

The number of people assaulted, harassed, and almost killed by Bernie Bros & Gals is a huge Con on the Bernie Pro/Con Voters’ List.
