DENVER (CBS4) – A fight broke out in the middle of the Bernie Sanders rally on Sunday evening at the Colorado Convention Center. The Democratic presidential candidate rallied thousands of supporters in Denver in a campaign stop before the March 3 Colorado primary.

CBS4’s news camera was capturing video of the event when two men began fighting. They pushed through a metal barrier fence toward the back near the media risers as they grappled with each other and one man knocked the other down onto the ground after lifting him up.

Friends of both people quickly intervened and after some more shoving successfully broke up the fight.

It wasn’t immediately clear to CBS4’s crew what the two men were fighting about, but someone contacted CBS4 on Monday by phone and said he is a Sanders supporter and one of the people involved. He said his name is Tyler and that a person with a T-shirt on that read “Black Guns Matter” was with two other men and they were booing during the speech. When Tyler tried to capture video of the booing on his phone’s camera, the man shoved him through the barrier. Tyler then retaliated. It was that action which was captured by CBS4’s camera.

Another video provided to CBS4 by an anonymous viewer shows the moments leading up to the brawl. It allegedly shows Tyler, in a jeans jackets, and another man arguing about the man’s shirt. That man with the “Black Guns Matter” shirt also contacted CBS4, although anonymously. He called Tyler the aggressor. The other man identified himself as African American.

“He had a problem with the shirt I was wearing,” this man said. “I was recording the event, he walks up and calls me a racist. But I thought, ‘What’s he know about black lives, about discrimination, or, for that matter, the representation of the shirt.'”

Throughout American history, the man continued, “Black people and their ability to own firearms has historically been very restricted. The shirt I got from a conceal-carry class.”

He said he agrees with Sanders on a number of policies but definitely not on gun ownership.

“I think it’s really a sad thing at a Bernie rally, when someone has a difference of opinion, that someone would be treated like that. I thought it really would be a lot more inclusive than that. It’s not a safe place to express differences. I would expect that sort of thing at a Trump rally.”


Neither one of the men was escorted out — security instead chose to instruct them to separate from each other in the crowd.

Sanders didn’t pause during his speech at any point during the fight.

    I like that, “you would expect shenanigans like that at a Trump rally”, sure, lol…When liberals/anti-fa/BLM show up to start al the problems.

  2. Tom Jones says:

    I knew these Bernie bros hated Mark Zuckerberg. This one actually tried to beat him up!

  3. Roboto Mcmoto says:

    Pretty typical of the bitter failed young person who made some bad life decisions. Now they want good ole Bernie Sanders to reverse all that for them. It’s everyone else’s fault they agreed to take on 6 figs of debt to coast and have a good time.

  4. r koz says:

    some really good posts. had a good laugh. keep it up and a latte is,nt worth fighting over.

  5. Quoth Theraven says:

    Those Sanders rallyies are sure getting violent. That was a white on black fight for sure.

  6. Nunya Business says:

    LOL- this is nothing. When Sanders is crushed the Marxist goons will take to the streets by the thousands, destroying everything they can. We may finally get the chance to cull the herd.

  7. Joe Truthmeister says:

    Democrats and white liberals are traitors and the enemy of the American people.

  8. Ron Paul says:

    Talk about 2 guys who were feelin the Bern

  9. Reade says:

    They were probably Trump supporters pretending to be Sanders supporters.

    1. Texconsin says:

      Everything wrong is Trump’s fault.

  10. Chris M says:

    They were probably fighting over who deserved more “FREE” things (i.e., paid for by you and me).

  11. John Jacob says:

    Lifestyles of the rank and feral.

  12. We Gee says:

    Those Republicans are so violent. They scare me.
    Those Bernie republicans even threatened to burn down Milwaukee. damn Republican Bible Toting NRA members.

  13. The little Bernie Bro ‘would expect that at a Trump Rally’? Like all left wing lunatics, he obviously lives in the CNN bubble. Soy boy: It’s the hate-filled left wingers like you that are the non-inclusive crowd. You are the people that attack anyone who dares to have a different opinion than yours, and goes after people in restaurants if they have conservative values. Don’t lecture us about ‘tolerance’ you little snowflake… and people like you are astronomical hypocrites.

  14. YarplyTwelve says:

    he would expect something like that to happen at a trump rally except that wouldnt happen at a trump rally, but what does he know about trump except what the liberal media spoon feeds him

  15. deplorable vinny says:

    They were fighting over the free stuff. There’s only so much stuff commies can confiscate from one to give to another before they run out and violence ensues…duh.

  16. Zebulon says:

    Dude wearing a “Black Guns Matter shirt. Too much for the Bernie Bros to handle?

    1. Quoth Theraven says:

      Exactly. Though the black guy will have to give up his gun when Bernie becomes President. No crying, either.

  17. Ericka says:

    So we are just going to pretend that these were not plants? Please stop, they are trying so hard to push the Bernie as Trump narrative. If people fall for such an obvious manipulation that we have much bigger problems than this fake fight.

  18. Drew Krenke says:

    From the stage, Bernie said:
    “Punch him in the face. The rich will pay your legal bill!”

  19. s12 says:

    who’s the hottie in the purple shirt and boots?

    1. Jim Vick says:

      Probably his brother…

  20. Larry Pike says:

    Lenin was the better Communist!
    No Stalin was the better Communist!
    Say it one more time and I’ll punch you!

  21. Frank zappa says:

    The Bolsheviks vs. the Menshiviks.

  22. M A R 100 says:

    Must be fighting over who gets the free medical care.

  23. Ray Shepherd says:

    This looks staged. If real they would have removed the two of them from the event. Trying to make it look like nothing is going to disturb Bernie during his speech.

    1. Donald Olson says:

      Staged to make it look like “brownshirts” are Bernie’s main supporters.

  24. Wes says:

    Last free donut.

    1. A J says:

      Unlike the arm chaired red necksTrump supporters Sander are not obese, so yeah they can actually move!
      Trump: Unstable Non Genius Narcissist!

      1. Wow, that is as profound a political commentary as I have ever read. You need to be on staff at MSNBC.

      2. Robert Hunter says:

        Yeah I remember the last fight at a Trump rally. Wait ! There never are any. 30,000 people and everyone treats others with respect. Not so much at any Democrat “rally” since a large number are paid “supporters” or agitators for a particular candidate. Can the Democrats do anything without cheating? the answer is no!

      3. God, what a moron you are. ‘Non-genius’? Wow, that’s special little man. You sound like a ‘non-entity’. Take a couple of minutes to look that up, and then come back and impress us all with your debating skills…we can barely wait.

      4. NoName4Now says:

        As a pants-wetter, can you opine if a ‘time-out’ might have helped these two? How about a safe space?

  25. Constance says:

    Bloomberg paid enforcers, they’re going to make trouble everywhere.

  26. NoName4Now says:

    When we Trump supporters go LOW, the turds on the left go HIGH!
    Poor Snowflakes!! Hahahaha!!!!

  27. KarlMarx says:

    Do not touch a commie’s Big Gulp!

  28. laddino says:

    Just another Intersectionality Cage Match over just who is being the most oppressed.

  29. STOIC says:


  30. Joe Macdonald says:

    They were fighting over someone else’s money….

    1. NoName4Now says:


  31. Mark Lang says:

    No doubt fighting over which of them has the lowest sperm count. That each has some more woke work to do (albeit, not much) is illustrated by the fact that “the fight” didn’t just consist of slapping at the other one with their eyes closed.

  32. nono1234 says:

    Of course, the’re fighting as the crowd cheers for Bernie promising to promote public funding for killing unborn babies and judges who are “100% on Roe v Wade” (meaning no limits after X weeks, like in more civilized countries, or no limits on sex-selective or disability-based abortions – which is eugenics – again, as in most civilized countries).

    These bloodthirsty ghouls have to pay in babies lives to keep their unlimited. personal consequence-free “freedom”.

  33. NBOB says:

    Vicious leftist followers of communism, our country will pay a price when this is over, they were raised to rebel and destroy.

  34. cleo48 says:

    Commie, commie, commie, Commie, commie, chameleon… they’ll come and go, they’ll come and go ho-ho-ho!

  35. rinco says:

    dude shouldnt have made fun of his stylish white belt

  36. dave fay says:

    Just wait until Mid July when the DNC has to tell all the Bernie folks that, sorry, we already sold the nomination to Bloomberg back in Dec 2019.

  37. Auntie Vyris says:

    Much speculation about what caused the fight, Janet… sources say it’s Trump’s fault.”

  38. freedubay says:

    deplorable..oh wait I thought I was watching NASCAR

  39. astralweeks says:

    Ah, those peace loving, compassionate liberals.

  40. Ted Jones says:

    Is the Secret Service involed with protection of Bernie yet?

  41. Michael Schuldes says:

    WAit until the DEM convention….’68 x3…

  42. Al Court says:

    Mosh pits at Bernie rallies, great idea.

  43. Lewis Ranja says:

    I think the white guy was probably upset that the black guy wasn’t woke enough to the plight of young black men.

  44. Thousands of parasites fighting for “free stuff” at other hard working peoples expense!

  45. Patrick Garrison says:

    That was not a fight. Looked more like a mating ritual.

  46. swimologist says:

    Clearly, one was proving he was more woke than the other.

  47. Roy Guercio says:

    Fighting over which brand had the better tofu.

  48. jay says:

    Most of his followers are young and naïve.
