Fearing the Past Will Repeat


For John, BLUFLife is hard and then you find yourself in a Presidential Election Year.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From The Hill we have this warning:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is warning Bernie Sanders against inspiring the type of chaos that plagued the 1968 Democratic convention.

“It worries me a great deal,” she said Wednesday on CNN.  "I don’t want to go back to the '68 convention because I worry about what it does to the electorate as a whole. And he should too.”

The 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago was marred by violent clashes between protesters and police.

Nevada’s state Democratic convention Saturday erupted in turmoil when Sanders supporters began loudly protesting the results and booing Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) as she spoke.

Which brings up the fact that Author Michael Cohen has written about the 1968 election, American Maelstrom: The 1968 Election and the Politics of Division.  This will have the spin of the Democratic Party side, but should still be interesting.

But, back to Senator Boxer, we have this—"SENATOR BOXER Claims Bernie Supporters Made Her Fear for Her Life: “It Was Scary” (VIDEO)".

Then there is the other California Senator, DiFi, who raises the same threat of chaos.

People who suggest that there is violence associated with the Trump Campaign miss the point that the violence is coming from the other side.
