Hillary Clinton officially became the Democrat nominee for president at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday. Of course, given her low popularity among voters across the political spectrum, her nomination comes with particularly strong opposition from the supporters of Socialist Bernie Sanders.
In fact, during the delegate count, some top supporters of Sanders attempted to organize a “mass exodus” from the convention – and among the organizers was publicity-hound and Socialist Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant.
Unfortunately for Sawant, though some supporters of Sanders left, the “mass exodus” did not happen.
Sawant, however, believes the exodus that did occur is being downplayed. She told KIRO Radio’s Jason Rantz, “I wouldn’t underestimate the size of the walkout.”
Sawant said that while she was watching from Seattle, she was in contact with walkout organizers on the ground in Philadelphia.
“My understanding is that hundreds of them walked out, but there were tactics used to prevent the whole group from going out of the Wells Fargo Center in unison,” she said.
When asked about a segment of Sanders supporters saying they would vote for Hillary Clinton, Sawant — once again — urged voters to not “follow [Sanders] into the Hillary tent.” She insisted that the Democrat Party is “not going to be a vehicle for [far-Left] change.”
Instead, Sawant advocated for Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presidential candidate.
So at least we can be thankful to Hillary that Sawant’s vote will be thrown away this fall.
