Violent and irrational supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting their regressive socialist agenda this week.

The Vermont senator’s supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith.

“Where did she go?” one person in the video can be heard asking. “She’s going out. Let’s go.”

The Sanders supporters then surrounded Londrigan’s vehicle, telling each other to “block her in” and to “get by her window!”

“Bernie Bros.,” Bernie Sanders most ardent and vocal supporters, have a history of reverting to violence, intimidation, and threats as a means of furthering the Vermont Senator’s socialist agenda.

Earlier this month, 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg and his campaign tweeted out a video featuring aggressive tweets, texts and memes from Sanders supporters.

“Vote Bernie or bad things will happen,” one message said.

“We know where you live. Where you work. Where you eat,” said another.

“Libs who are flirting with Bloomberg now should be aware that they are going on lists,” said one particularly disturbing tweet.

Several targeted other Democrats in the race, calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren a “snake” and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg “a demonic rat.”

And then there’s this guy:
