This is bizarro world or, what amounts to the same thing, an ideologically-useful fiction of the left’s.

In reality, Sanders’ supporters have proven themselves to be far more violent-prone than the supporters of any other candidate, Republican or Democrat. In fact, it is only Sanders’ supporters who have established a pattern of visiting violence upon those with whom they disagree.

On the weekend of May 14-15, a Nevada Democratic convention had to be shut down because security at the hotel at which it was held couldn’t contain the mayhem unleashed by the hordes of disgruntled fans of the self-avowed “socialist” from Vermont. In addition to hurling obscenities and accosting people, Sanders’ supporters hurled chairs and issued death threats against the state party chairwoman, Roberta Lange.

As of the Monday following the melee, state party offices were still closed for security reasons: Sanders supporters, ever true to the leftist’s playbook, made public Lange’s home and business addresses, email and cell phone number....

The state party’s general counsel, Bradley S. Schrager, insisted upon alerting the DNC to “the Sanders campaign’s penchant for extra-parliamentary behavior—indeed, actual violence—in place of democratic conduct in a convention setting” and its “encouragement of, and complicity in, a very dangerous atmosphere that ended in chaos and physical threats to fellow Democrats” (italics added).
