article imageYelling Clinton Supporters Ejected From DNC Floor: McCain Will Be The Next President

By Susan Duclos     Jun 1, 2008 in Politics
The Democratic National Committee Rules and ByLaws meeting was controversial and as people yelled Denver! Denver!, they were escorted out, in one case a Clinton supporter left bruised and another vowing that John McCain would be the next president.
The two videos above were taken by Jane Hamsher of the FireDogLake blog after Hillary Clinton supporters were escorted out of the Rules and ByLaws Committee meeting.
The first video is of Harriet Christian and she says "the democrats are throwing the election away as well as asking "for what?!!! An inadequate black male who would not have been running had there not been a white woman that was running for president!"
She continued to rant, saying, "and I am not going to shut my mouth anymore!! I can be called white, but you can't be called black. Thats not my America!
She says more in the video but she was adamant that people that insist that Democrat supporters will not vote for McCain are wrong and that McCain will be the next president of the United states, but before that she screams "God Damn the Democrats!!!!"
Another woman, Deborah Foster who is a Long Island School teacher shows a bruise on her arm from when security forced her out of the meeting.
If this type of anger and behavior is any indication of what the Democratic Convention will look like in August, held in Denver, then those that predicted chaos have severely understated the situation.
The DNC committee rules to give Michigan and Florida half-votes, which has angered many, especially Florida voters, since Barack Obama's name was still on the Florida ballot, unlike Michigan where Obama removed his name from the ballot.
The scene during the meeting was a nightmare scenario for the Democratic party, with signs saying, "Howard Dean is a leftist freak!"
Other were more direct with, "At least slaves were counted as 3/5ths a Citizen".
There is more reported by The New Republic, but the bottom line seems to be, for many, that there will be no unity, no matter the words of Howard Dean who swore, "there will be unity"
