Brawl breaks out at Bernie Sanders rally in Colorado

A fight broke out at a Bernie Sanders rally in Colorado on Monday after a white man allegedly attacked a black man for calling the Vermont senator and wearing a “Black Guns Matter T-shirt.”

Sanders stopped in Denver, where he gathered thousands of supporters at the Colorado Convention Center.

While the Democratic presidential candidate was speaking, two men started fighting against the podium.

The men can be seen on video from CBS4 push through a metal barrier. One man sees the other man pick up before they both land on the floor.

Friends of both men intervened quickly and broke out before the fight got out of hand.

According to CBS, one of the men involved contacted the station by telephone and confirmed that he was a Sanders supporter who had a fight with the other man during the rally.

The man, who only gave his first name, Tyler, claimed that the man he fought wore a shirt with the text: “Black Guns Matter.”

That man was with two other men who were allegedly drunk when Sanders gave his collective call to supporters.

Tyler told CBS that he was trying to capture a video of the man and his friends who were calling on his phone when the man pushed him, causing Tyler to get revenge.

According to the station, the other man who was wearing the “Black Guns Matter” shirt was also called CBS but remained anonymous.

He said he was African-American and called Tyler the aggressor.

The man said: “He had a problem with the shirt I was wearing. I was recording the event, he walks upstairs and calls me a racist. But I thought, “What does he know about black lives, about discrimination or, for that matter, the representation of the shirt.”

He added that although he agrees with Sen. Sanders on numerous policies, possession of weapons is not one of those.

“Black people and their ability to possess firearms have traditionally been very limited. The shirt I got from a class to wear, “the man said.

None of the men were kicked out of the rally, but they were separated from each other

Sanders did not seem aware of the fight as it unfolded and continued to give his speech to supporters.

Earlier on Monday, Mike Bloomberg released a new web video focusing on “Bernie Bros” who played online to rivals Sanders, after Sanders accused him of trying to “buy” the election.

The advertisement contained a series of screeds from the Sanders supporters. “We know where you live. Where you work. Where you eat, “someone said.

One called Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren a “snake,” and another cryptically warned: “Libs now flirting with Bloomberg need to know they’re on lists.”

“We know where you work. Where you eat Where you live ‘said another.

The ad contained specific commentary on the “Bernie Bros,” who allegedly harbor sexist views and tear in anyone who gets in the way of Sanders, who had the most people in front of him in Iowa and won the New Hampshire primary.

Sanders tweeted on Bloomberg Sunday: “The simple truth is that Mayor Bloomberg, with all his money, won’t create the kind of excitement and energy we need to beat Donald Trump.”

He also tagged the mayor for “racist policies such as stopping and searching,” a police tactic for which Bloomberg apologized, but returned after the video of him who defended it came up.

Monday night’s fight also came just 24 hours after protesters had made a scene at another Nevada campaign campaign.

Topless protesters disturbed Sanders while standing on stage.

The incident occurred only 24 hours after protesters had made a scene at another campaign meeting in Nevada. Topless women stepped on stage and poured colored liquids over their bodies from containers marked 'milk' to protest against the dairy industry

The anti-dairy demonstrators stormed the stage just when Sanders started addressing his supporters at the Sunday event in Carson City.

First a fully dressed woman jumped on stage and grabbed the microphone away from the candidate to meet their requirements.

“Bernie, I am your biggest advocate and I am here to ask you to stop pumping up the dairy industry and to stop pumping up the livestock industry,” she said.

“I believe in you …” she continued, before the microphone suddenly died and the security approached her. The live video feed from the event campaign suddenly failed.

Meanwhile, topless women stepped onto the stage and poured colored liquids over their bodies from containers marked with “milk.”

They had written the words “dairy” and “die” on their naked torsos, with their bosoms fully reproduced.

Sanders and his wife, Jane, stepped to the side of the stage while the women continued. Jane laughed amused as Sanders watched Peevish with annoyance.

Security guards intervened and dragged the topless women off the stage.

Sanders quickly resumed his speech and got rid of the bizarre protest.
