Now we move on to the Philadelphia Democratic convention. It looks to be another pandering fest. My take is to keep your eye on the night the anti-police screed by all of the black moms of black kids killed will be presented, and who will be out in force to bash the police. That should light the fire of the protesters that are lined up. This will be no Cleveland. Add a couple of strikes in the offing- the airport, taxi strike over uber drivers and things are shaping up to be one fine time. My earlier post. It’s 1968 again – a look back at the Democratic Convention
One of the permits is for an event consisting of four days of all-day rallies at FDR Park in support of Mr. Sanders. The city said it expects 30,000 participants, and organizers said in an interview they hope turnout will be much higher.
The park is adjacent to the Wells Fargo Center, where many of the Democratic National Convention events will be held — raising the possibility of a large demonstration in support of Mr. Sanders just steps away from where delegates will officially select the Democratic nominee.
Philadelphia’s police union is angry with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention for giving speaking roles to family members of police shooting victims but not to family members of police officers who died in the line of duty.
John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, told Philadelphia’s local CBS affiliate that the speaker choices were “putting salt in the wound” and promoting an “anti-police movement.”
The union also released a statement that it was “insulted” by the exclusion of police widows and family members, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer:
“It is sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country,” the statement read. “Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself if that is possible.”
