Op/Ed: The Bernie Sanders, Martin O' Malley Shoutfest at Netroots Nation '15 Facepalm Moment

"It was Ugly, Brutal and Frankly Uncalled For....

It being what should now until the end of time be labeled as "Scream-down in Phoenix at Netroots Nation 2015". The Mainstream Media this sad moment in time up.

Left and Right wing political blogs or journals had a temporary field day boasting Progressive Candidates for the Democratic Presidential Nomination former Maryland Gov. Martin O' Malley and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) had little if any support of African-American voting Democrat voters, as a result of what happened in Phoenix.

The snapshot of some #BlackLivesMatters supporters in Phoenix during July at a conference center ballroom, screaming at the top of their lungs towards both Sanders and O'Malley, incredibly morphed into by some as on lines with a Mitt Romney "47% Video" exposure redeux.

However, Nothing can be further from the truth."

#BlackLivesMatter but 15 Minutes of Fame Seekers Shouldn't: The Sanders/O'Malley Shoutdown NN15

Disclaimer: Was not in Phoenix this year BUT read reports from the Blogging Media and "Left" and "Right" Mainstream Media so this rant is from a collection of what was read.

Word from the conference is U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley were shouted down repeatedly by those who claim to represent the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Meanwhile, the "Left" and "Right" wing Mainstream Media jumped all over the melee to say that Bernie Sanders had little to no support among so-called "Progressives" attending the conference.

Basically, the real truth is the following:

A bunch of folks seeking 15 minutes of fame decided to disrupt both U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley so-called "Q & A" session at the conference.

Meanwhile a "Moderator" named "Tia Oso" along lost control of actually performing basic moderation duties and decided to join into the Fame Seekers Disruptions. Jose Vergas lost control of this moderated session also but, did not jump into the melee. That was appreciated.

Now mind you, Hillary Clinton refused to attend Netroots Nation Conference COMPLETELY as the word was attending this event was not "worth her time" this year.

So instead of showing a minuscule of #Respect for the two Progressive Candidates that took time out of their day to show up and answer questions at Netroots Nation, these so-called, literally pop-up young 15 minutes of fame seekers supposedly (really NOT) representing the #BlackLivesMatters movement -- showed their Ass-ets -- to be as frank and honest and possible.

This is disappointing and does NOTHING to help the real #BlackLivesMatter Movement. The "Moderator" #TiaOso should never host a session with a potential Democratic Presidential Nominee again and Jose Vergas need to learn how to hold down an crowd of disruptive individuals before he is ever allowed to.

Netroots Nation should (but they likely won't) apologize to both Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders for allowing the sessions to break down to a shouting match were neither candidate were allowed to properly speak.

After reading the various accounts we are glad we declined to attend Netroots Nation this year as a result.

Time for a Welcome Change in Leadership with the Michigan Democratic Party

"On Friday, July 10, the owner of Independent Underground News & Talk (IUNT) Monica RW attended a local Washtenaw County Democratic Party Meeting were State Representative Brandon Dillon and LaVora Barnes outlined their upcoming platform to issues important for the State's Progressive voters, if elected to take the leadership reigns of Michigan Democratic Party."

Personally, I was very impressed by not only the questions both Mr. Dillon and Ms. Barnes answered of the audience, but likewise details given in each of those answers."
