Socialist Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant is in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention. She is there in hopes of adding her special kind of chaos – always intended to attract attention to herself – to the mess that is the coronation ceremony of Hillary Clinton.
And, she’s already stirring that self-promoting chaos up, before the convention even starts.
According to reports, Sawant spoke to protestors outside of Philadelphia City Hall on Sunday, where she urged Bernie Sanders supporters “not to give in to pressure from Democrats to fall in line behind Clinton just because they fear Republican nominee Donald Trump.”
Rather, Sawant urged Sanders supporters to vote for Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

Sawant wrapped up her speech by encouraging Sanders delegates to
“walk out of the convention on Wednesday.” The suggestion received the approval of the crowd, which included Sanders supporters holding signs reading “Hillary for Prison.”
And the Democrat establishment thought only Republicans could see through their nominee.
