Bernie Sanders’ supporters erupted in a brawl that quickly spiraled out of control at his latest rally.
The brawl was between an African American supporter and a white Bernie supporter and the fight took on racial overtones.
Typically, the snowflake liberal took offense at the black guys, “Black Guns Matter” t-shirt the white man actually called racist.
From The Daily Wire: A video posted later and a pair of interviews with two men claiming to be the ones involved indicate that the blow up was ultimately about the African-American man’s “Black Guns Matter” T-shirt, which the white “Bernie bro” condemned as “racist.”
The fight broke out during a Sanders rally held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver Sunday evening. The initial fight was caught on camera by Colorado’s CBS4. The video of the sudden eruption of violence, which occurred at the back of the rally near the media risers, rapidly circulated online.
“CBS4’s news camera was capturing video of the event when two men began fighting,” CBS4 reported. “They pushed through a metal barrier fence toward the back near the media risers as they grappled with each other and one man knocked the other down onto the ground after lifting him up. They both landed on the ground partially under the stage Sanders was in the middle of delivering his speech from. Friends of both people quickly intervened and after some more shoving successfully broke up the fight.”
CBS4’s crew said that they were initially unsure what started the scuffle, but on Monday, the outlet was contacted first by a man, Tyler, a self-described Sanders supporter who said he was the white guy shown duking it out in the video, then by another man who asked to remain anonymous who said he was the African-American man battling with Tyler. Another video involving the incident, this one before the fight broke out, shows Tyler and the African-American man arguing over the latter’s “Black Guns Matter” shirt.
The first to contact CBS4 Monday was “Tyler,” who told the outlet that a man with a “‘Black Guns Matter” shirt was with two other men “and they were booing during the speech,” CBS reports. “When Tyler tried to capture video of the booing on his phone’s camera, the man shoved him through the barrier. Tyler then retaliated. It was that action which was captured by CBS4’s camera.”
