LAS VEGAS — STATE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION (9:05 PM PDT) — Clintonite Democratic Party Establishment apparatchiks have thrown Robert’s Rules of Order (“RROR”) out the window and in an unprecedented putsch have decertified 64 Sanders delegates.
The situation is extremely fluid and somewhat complicated, but in a simplified nutshell, sources tell us, and video and tweets appear to confirm, that Sanders national delegates chosen at the second tier of Nevada’s delegate selection plan — when transients and other unreliable first tier HRC delegate candidates failed to show up — were decertified on a voice vote clearly reflecting a severely divided house. Sanders state delegates’ protests were ignored and they ultimately began chanting “No means no!”
The chairperson called police and at least two Sanders state delegates were removed by police without resistance, according to a Sanders state delegate in the convention hall. That source also said that police confiscated pizza that was delivered to the Sanders block and threw it into garbage cans.
Continuing the fascistic methods, the pro-Clinton chairperson reportedly called out of order all Sanders state delegates who rose to speak on behalf of Sanders delegate candidates.
As of 8:00 p.m. PDT, a Clintonite state delegate was speaking on behalf of a Clintonite national delegate candidate, with a long line of Clintonite state delegates waiting for their turns to do likewise. Meanwhile, sources confirm that the Sanders national staff advised Sanders state delegates to remain in the convention hall as objections to the irregularities were finally about to be entertained.
As of 8:40 p.m. PDT, a parliamentarian and comrades in a grassroots Sanders group had transmitted parliamentary procedural advice to their brothers and sisters.
