ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Bernie Sanders sidelined in Seattle as Black Lives Matter activists invade stage (Associated Press, 9 August 2015)

The Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was shoved aside by several Black Lives Matter activists and eventually had to leave an event in Seattle without giving his speech. 

Sanders was just starting to address several thousand people gathered shoulder to shoulder at Westlake Park when two women took over the microphone. Organizers could not persuade the two to wait and agreed to give them a few minutes.

As Sanders stepped back the women spoke about Ferguson and the killing of Michael Brown and called for four minutes of silence.

When the crowd asked the activists to allow Sanders to speak, one activist called the crowd "white supremacist liberals", according to event participants.

Of course, every Black Lives Mater sign is next to a Bernie sign on lawns across America.
