The Democrat National Convention has erupted into chaos.
Leaked emails showing the national party rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders set off a firestorm of protests that threatened to spoil Hillary Clinton’s official acceptance to the party’s nomination for President.
And all the upheaval could dash any chances of Clinton succeeding Barack Obama.
On the day before the Democratic convention, national party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign because she presided over a conspiracy to fix the election.
National party staffers had been working to undermine Bernie Sanders’ primary challenge to Hillary Clinton.
Wasserman Schultz – who was a key Clinton backer during her 2008 campaign – was never viewed by Sanders supporters as a neutral arbiter in the 2016 primary – and the leaked emails prove they were right.
As a result, the first day of the Democratic convention descended into chaos.
The strife began early in the morning when Wasserman Schultz addressed the Florida delegation.
As a member of Congress from the Sunshine State, she may have thought the audience would be friendly.
Her reception confirmed that to be spectacularly wrong.
“Chaos erupted as Debbie Wasserman Schultz addressed Florida delegates on Monday, with opponents upset about leaked emails jeering the outgoing Democratic National Committee chairwoman as she delivered a speech at a state breakfast meeting.
“So I can see there’s a little bit of interest in my being here, and I appreciate that interest,” Wasserman Schultz said amid the cacophony, which began as soon as the Florida Democrat started speaking.
“And a little bit of interest from the press,” she continued — straining to be heard over shouts of “Shame!” — “but that really shows you that Florida is the most significant battleground state that will make sure that Hillary Clinton is elected president of the United States of America. We are the state that will deliver the White House to make sure that we can continue to make the progress that we have been able to make under Barack Obama for the last eight years.”
The mayhem continued when Bernie Sanders addressed his supporters hours before he was scheduled to deliver a primetime speech on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
Sanders supporters were so incensed with him for giving cover to the Democrats’ rigged system, that they booed him when he mentioned Hillary’s name.
The booing continued on the convention floor as speaker after speaker brought up Hillary Clinton’s name.
Every mention of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine gets a hearty round of boos at HILLARY’s OWN CONVENTION.

The Democrats expected an orderly convention which would provide Hillary the boost she needs as she takes on Donald Trump in the general election.
But the party is fractured now that Sanders backers are aware their candidate was not given a fair shot in the primary.
And they may choose to stay home or vote third party to teach national Democrats a lesson, which means Hillary Clinton will most likely lose the election.
