The call to “Lock her (Hillary Clinton) up”which began at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week is now bi-partisan.
Yesterday was the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and things did not go well for Hillary.
Already upset at Hillary’s primary shenanigans, supporters of Bernie Sanders are now doubly incensed because hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails show that a DNC official had proposed helping Hillary defeat Bernie in the primary elections by publicizing Sanders is a Jew. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary“)
At the Philly convention yesterday, Bernie supporters shouted “shame” at outgoing DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, as well as “lock her up!” every time Hillary’s name was mentioned in speeches.
And when Bernie took the stage and told the delegates “And we have got to elect Hillary Clinton,” they booed.
During the Republican Convention last week, TV anchors and talking heads made a big point about how vicious and insulting the GOP delegates were for chanting “Lock her up”. I can’t wait to see the same anchors and talking heads squirm over Democrats chanting the same thing.
Also, independent investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, reporting from Philadelphia, says:
According to well-placed government sources in Washington, DC, WikiLeaks is poised to release additional State Department emails that will show that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent even more sensitive classified information via her private servers
The emails are reportedly so damaging to Clinton, advisers to her vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine are fully prepared for the Virginia senator to pick up the reins and lead the Democratic ticket in November.
LOCK HER UP!!!
