Florida Democrats Threaten To Shut Down DNC In Denver If Delegates Not Seated

"We will shut down the convention! Nobody goes in until Florida goes in!"--Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Florida)

"If the Florida delegation is not seated, we will march on Denver, we'll take all of the buses willing to go to Denver, and we will shut that convention down before it gets started"--Luis Rivera, League of United Latin American Citizens legal advisor


More threats of unrest and shenanigans at the DNC in Denver if Florida's Democrat delegates aren't seated:
Chanting "Count our votes!" a group of fired-up Democrats demonstrated at DNC Headquarters, calling for the party to seat Florida's delegates in August.

Rep. Corrine Brown was among those protesting. The Florida Democrat and Superdelegate said they are ready to go to the mat for disenfranchised primary voters.

"We will shut down the convention! Nobody goes in until Florida goes in!"

National party leaders stripped Florida's delegates after the state moved the primary ahead of February 5th, violating party rules. DNC Chairman Howard Dean has said that the delegate dilemma in Florida and Michigan will be settled before the convention. But so far, nothing has been done.

The League of United Latin American Citizens organized the protest. Their legal advisor, Luis Rivera, joined Rep. Brown's call to shut down the convention.

"If the Florida delegation is not seated, we will march on Denver, we'll take all of the buses willing to go to Denver, and we will shut that convention down before it gets started."
Once again, moonbat protestors (Recreate '68) and even enraged Democrats will be the source of convention discord, not Rush Limbaugh or Roseanne Barr.

Both comments do not constitute "incitement"--but an explicit threat to "shut down the convention" (ostensibly from inside the Pepsi Center in an intraparty battle) will no doubt have ramifications outside in the streets, as convention chaos turns into more of those "spontaneous" protests, especially if Florida delegates are not allowed inside, or black Democrat voters feel disenfranchised.
