Democrats are desperate to appear united in the wake of the Wikileaks emails proving that the DNC colluded to damped Bernie Sander’s chances at nomination. So desperate, that it appears they are taking drastic measures in order to portray the optics of a full convention by hiring “actors,” or just random people, to fill the seats after the Bernie delegates decided to walk out. According to reports, it was about 700 people who abandoned their seats.
Some reports are saying this was a hoax, although now Bernie delegates are saying that the seats have been filled since they left the convention, but they don’t know who filled them.
Here is what the seating situation looked like after the Bernie delegates staged their walkout on July 26th.

There were also screen captures of an ad on Craigslist that appears to be offering people $50 a day to sit at the convention and clap

There is also an ad on Craigslist asking for minority actors only to fill the seats, which makes sense given the Democrats never ending desire to appear as “champions of the oppressed.” Of course they couldn’t fill their empty convention seats by the dreaded “white males” and risk trigger anyone in their sensitive audience.

“We are looking for ~30 enthusiastic people of African, Asian, Latino, or Indian descent to fill empty seats here at the convention center.
Must be willing to hold signs, clap, and to cheer during particular speeches. Please respond for additional information.”
A Bernie Sanders delegate says that the DNC is replacing Bernie supporters with paid seat fillers in order to create a fake image of “unity” as the convention goes into its final day.
In the clip, the delegate says that he got to the convention between 5-6pm and the place was virtually empty but that it suspiciously filled up very quickly.
“Every seat in the house is full – so those seat fillers you guys were hearing about? It’s real, they’re in here now,” states the delegate.
He went on to explain how the seat fillers were people he did not know and hadn’t seen at the convention previously.
The man goes on to note how the arrival of the seat fillers coincided with the media narrative that the DNC is now far more unified than when it began and how everyone is applauding and cheering in unity.
“It’s because the Bernie people aren’t here and the people that are here are getting paid to sit in their seats and clap their hands,” he adds, noting that attendees are also being blocked from getting back in if they leave their seat at any point – even to just go to the bathroom.
“My guess is that’s because a seat filler is in your seat and the optics of everyone having to shift and stand and move is not something they want to see,” says the delegate, adding, “There are people in that hall who are being represented in the media as Bernie Sanders people and they are not – don’t believe what you see on TV.”
“There are a lot of people here who aren’t delegates who are standing and cheering and clapping for somebody that we aren’t ready to believe in,” he concludes, promising to hold the Democratic establishment accountable.
In another video, a man interviewed by a Bernie delegate admits to being a seat filler for the DNC.
Suspicions that the Democrats were hiring seat-fillers to pad out the audience grew after a posting on Philly Craigslist entitledActors Needed For National Convention.
“We currently have a number of empty seats that will need to be filled as we are currently removing a number of people and need to refill their seats for the remainder of the conference,” stated the ad, promising to pay seat fillers $50 each night and advising them they will be “required to “cheer at all times” and “possibly wear some promotional material”.
Tons of seats were left empty on Tuesday night after Bernie delegates staged a walk-out.
“I can’t believe my eyes,” commented RT’s Josh Fox. “I’ve never seen anything like this. This is the primetime of the Democratic National Convention right after the nomination of Hillary Clinton and this place is emptied out like crazy. I’m stunned.”
