Socialists Convention Erupts Over Gendered Pronoun Use, Excessive Whispering

Clips on social media made it look like Democratic Socialists spent half of their convention complaining about triggers.

Atlanta, GA – The Democratic Socialists of America are facing bipartisan derision after video clips of their National Convention in Atlanta showed mayhem as speakers and delegates were repeatedly interrupted by complaints about whispering and pronoun misusage.

Just in case anyone in attendance thought the Democratic Socialists’ convention was going to look anything like the television spectacles created by the Democratic and Republican parties, the party of Presidential hopeful U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) quickly set them straight.

Convention organizers opened the session by reviewing some very unusual rules for attendees.

They also pointed out the safe spaces that delegates could run to if they were triggered.

As long as they weren’t wearing perfume.

“We have quiet rooms that are available – there’s a range of options of these, right?” the organizer announced from the podium. “One thing to note there. Please don’t go into that space with anything that like an aggressive scent, for instance.”

Then he went on to lecture the delegates, all of whom were presumably adults, not to use the wrong doors in and out of the convention hall, not to share pictures of their credentials on social media, and not to sneak in their friends who did not have credentials.

“And generally, try to be chill. Right? Take a deep breath,” he instructed the delegates and then waited until they had done so. “Doesn’t that feel better? Before you say anything.”

The rules took on a very conspiracy theory-like feel as the convention organizer began instructing the delegates on who they were not allowed to talk to.

“Don’t really talk to anybody who doesn’t have a credential, especially if they claim to be with the press,” he said.

He warned the attendees of “right wing infiltrators” that were in their midst.

“Don’t talk to cops, don’t talk to MAGA a--holes,” the organizer ordered them. “Don’t talk to cops if there are cops there for any reason at all. And if you do see someone talking to cops, let the marshals know.”

From the outset, the vibe in the room was different from a typical political convention for any party.

Applause were not welcomed because they could be “triggering,” so instead delegates waved jazz hands in the air to signal when they liked something that was said.

Instead of listening to speeches about public policy and debating the future of their party, some of the delegates appeared more focused on the specific words that were being used by their “comrades.”

Video clips from the conventions showed delegates continuously interrupted speakers with their complaints framed as “points of privilege,” FOX News reported.

“Ah, quick point of privilege! Quick point of personal privilege!” a man called out from the microphone staged halfway up the aisle of the auditorium when they were discussing assigned pronouns for chapter names.

“Uh, yes,” the chairwoman said, ceding the floor to him.

“Um guys, first of all, James Jackson Sacramento he/him,” the speaker introduced himself. “I just want to say, can we please keep the chatter to the minimum? I'm one of the people who's very, very prone to sensory overload.”

Delegates could be seen waving jazz hands in the air in response to his request, according to FOX News.

"There's a lot of whispering and chattering going on. It's making it very difficult for me to focus,” Jackson continued. “Please, I know we're all fresh and ready to go, but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? It's affecting my ability to focus."

"Thank you, comrade," the chair replied and started to move back to the matter at hand.

But then she was interrupted again almost immediately by a flustered person screaming into the microphone.

"Point of personal privilege! Point of personal privilege!" the person yelled.

"Yes?" the chair asked.

"Please do not use gendered language to address everyone!" the person responded, sounding very upset.

The person was likely referring to Jackson’s use of the words “you guys” during his request that people in the audience refrain from whispering.

His request that people avoid triggering him had apparently triggered another delegate.

When things became more heated between delegates later in the day, Jackson was back at the microphone to complain that his anxiety had been triggered.

"Quick point of privilege once again! Quick point of privilege once again!" Jackson interrupted.

"Hi, James Jackson, Sacramento DSA, he/him,” he re-introduced himself. "I have already asked people to be mindful of the chatter of their comrades who are sensitive to sensory overload. And that goes double for the heckling and the hissing.”

“It is also triggering to my anxiety. Like, being comradely isn't just for like, let’s keep things civil or whatever. It's so people aren't going to get triggered, and so that it doesn't affect their performance as a delegate,” he explained.

He went on to say that other delegates’ need to express themselves was important, but not more important than his need not to be triggered.

Reason reported that the behavior of the Democratic Socialists in Atlanta was not at all unusual for the organization.

“It is not at all uncommon to see the DSA sidetracked by infighting over unreasonable requests related to language and disability status,” Robby Soave wrote in his column about the convention’s “woke one-upmanship.”

"Don't talk to cops."

Good advice. I've been using it all my life and no troubles so far.

LMAO! Poor snowflake commies can't get their lives together. Imagine if they were talking about important things that actually mattered? Wait, am I allowed to refer to them as they..? What if they don't identify as they..? Does that mean they're un-identifiable? If I can't identify you I have to collar you for ID purposes..Am I still protected by free speech..? My head hurts...

Are the people (am I allowed to use the term "people"?) at this convention the future of America?? If this is the next generation (of snowflakes) there will not be anyone to make America great - only destroy her, I mean, destroy America. Is America now an "it"? Oh man, I mean, oh boy, I mean, wow, we're in trouble...

This is the kind of meeting that LOW_EST IQ and Hamburger Helper attend on a regular basis. So sad as these people want to be taken so seriously yet others laugh hysterically at them and their hand wringing as these are some of America's pussiest pussies and the sorriest of excuses for what passes as a man in 2019. If I ever sat in the audience the last thing I would be doing is complying with all of their "special rules" and would be giving the organizers really something to trigger themselves about.

Where is Spetsnaz and their Kolokol pumping machine when you need them? Put huge signs on each side of the building that say "MOSCOW THEATER", fire up the "Foggers" that are loaded with Kolokol-1

This Spetsnaz treatment would give the commies in that building a real taste of their beloved communist utopia and a surefire cure for all of the "Triggering" in that building.

Will Sacramento be the same without poor James Jackson?

have studied human behavior for some time now. What I have found is people that act like THIS,,have a mental problem. It may advance to an Anger Management problem then to outbursts and so on. What I am saying is, these people have the potential of being DANGEROUS, Look at ANTIFA,,it is full of these mindsets. These people are the result of a Catastrophic Parental Failure.

It's both hilarious and frightening at the same time. Because if this is how these people actually think and act then we are definitely at the beginning of the end.

The Left inevitably manages to self-destruct, partly because they become victims of the lunacies which they fabricate!

I watched the video above and read some of the hilarious comments. It truly does look like an old SNL skit. These snowflakes don't know what "triggered" is unless they've witnessed or been the victim of a traumatic event such as assault, abuse, the horrors of war, etc. If they feel the need to have a hissy fit over someone's use of gender pronouns, they need a 'time-out' in their little safe room. It they can't focus, they probably forgot to take their adderall.

Liberalism the mental disease.

I have discovered two of the symptoms for sure.
SNBS - Snot Nosed Brat Syndrome which is developed very early when the terrible twos are not treated properly with discipline. Discipline that includes a sound asswhoopin to humble a bit of common sense and mutual respect into an otherwise arrogant, self centered, disrespectful, untrustworthy and useless being to a civilized society. One of the worst documented contributing factors to SNBS is rewarding bad behavior in the early years following the terrible twos. Things such as receiving trophies for failure is just one of those factual degrading causes. IDD - Intellectual Derelict Disease can happen to a human being at any age but typically is developed in ones early 20's and proceeded by SNBS. This stage of the mental disorder known as Liberalism is extremely dangerous to a civilized society. IDD can be and is worsened with many different useless and unproductive hours of learned behavior in many of today's "institutions" of supposed higher learning. Other links to IDD onset are attempting to allow low IQ individuals a purchased amount of knowledge along with a certificate that states such while NO application of such intelligence has been applied toward a useful benefit for the civilization forced to fund many of the useless certificates. IDD sufferers are incapable of acknowledging their obligations to a civilized society through productivity because the illness causes such self centered perceptions and misplaced values of "ones" importance. IDD sufferers almost always cling to self imposed guilt issues they can only justify with repetitive distortions of facts and history ( course offered on most "institution" campuses). In short IDD sufferers know half of what they spew, have little experience at much besides serving themselves, believe others owe them, aren't half as smart as other IDD sufferers tell them they are but seek like minded intolerant others and WILL most likely, God forbid, reproduce offspring certain to suffer SNBS in their early years. IDD has been treated with limited success through steady employment and sometimes a good solid asswhoopin even though this is probably effective only due to treating the SNBS their IDD suffering peers never treated them for.
