    Democrats ask for $50 million for security

    So the democrats want $50 million to provide security at this convention.

    Milwaukee requests $50 million federal security grant for 2020 Democratic National Convention

    Why aren't they just putting up "Gun Free Zone" signs and calling it good?
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    Are the Democrats planning for a small war to break out? Its Milwaukee, WI nothing of note happens there.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Historically, Milwaukee is well known for protests and riots. It is within easy range of radical left Madison and all of the massive population of the greater Chicago region. If they WANT protests and riots, it is an excellent location choice. While Chicago would be better to recruit riots and protests, Milwaukee is only an hour away and the Milwaukee police can't hold a candle to Chicago police in terms of numbers and fear-factor. Everyone knows - don't mess the Chicago police. They'll hurt you. Bad. They'll lock you up. You will not like how your treated there.

    The old idea is to have conventions in a key state. I see nothing in elections that supports that premise.
    Don't fall for the paranoia of Progressive Democratic Prophets Of Doom. Time has always proven they are wrong.

    Milwaukee has long been one of the most angry and decayed cities in America...not a great place to hold a convention.

    The Democrats seem to lack basic sense increasingly.

    But why would the historical left rioters, harm the democrats?

    This should have been negotiated upfront before selecting the location.

    Are you kidding? A brokered convention between Sander's team and Bloomberg's team - plus everyone else's team and people who then just want to protest about something? BLM. Antifa. 2Aers. Anti 2Aers. Prolife and Prochoice... the list goes on and on. Internal fights can become the most vicious of all - because they all can get in the door and every side has supporters. It is more difficult for a political party to deal with protesters of their own party.

    And the DNC should pay for it.

    Why so much? Will Biden not be bringing his double barrel shotgun?
