On Tuesday the democrat party platform committee removed all mention of God [there was only one] as well as language that declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel. As you can imagine, this didn’t go over well with the American people.
Today an amendment adding God and language declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel back into the platform was voted on. As you can see, it caused problems:
Unreal. Who boos God? And since Jerusalem IS the capital of Jerusalem, well, you get the idea.
Frankly I’m glad these Godless, soulless creatures are revealing themselves to the world. It’s time the American people get a real look at what democrats are and what they stand for.
As Ben Shaprio at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government notes, Antonio Villaraigosa, the head of the convention, had to basically ram the amendment adding God and Jerusalem back in, down the delegates’ throats. The ayes definitely did not have it.
Tonight, the Democratic National Committee suspended the rules of the convention and inserted language regarding God and the State of Israel back to its platform. They had to vote three times to do it – and they had to lie to deem it passed, even though it was clear that the measure did not pass a voice vote in the chamber.
The original 2012 Democratic Party platform had excised all mention of God and Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, the head of the Democratic National Convention, got up and asked for a two-thirds vote on the amendments to the platform. He took a voice vote, with people stating aloud “aye” and “nay.”
The first time, he couldn’t determine if two-thirds of the voters had said “aye”; a loud “no” vote was heard. He asked for a second vote.
The second time, he couldn’t determine whether the voice vote had passed. Again. Villaraigosa looked around in confusion.
Finally, on the third attempt, Villaraigosa took a voice vote and simply declared, in the “opinion of the chair,” that it had been passed. There were widespread boos in the convention hall to the renewed inclusion of God and language about Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
And Villaraigosa was lying, in any case – there is no way that the voice vote had passed. Opponents stood up and protested, waving and shouting. The fix was in. The Democratic leadership had to ram a mention of God and a mention of Jerusalem through, violating their own rules, to avoid the fallout within their own ranks.
Sources also report that the language was changed “to reflect the president’s personal view.” This is bull. President Obama has never recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and neither has his spokesperson or State Department. He has never taken a public position against the so-called “right of return,” which would destroy Israel as a Jewish state.
And he has publicly stated that Israel should use the 1949 armistice lines as the baseline of any future negotiations. This was obviously a political move designed to prevent disillusioned Jewish voters from leaving the Democratic voters in droves.
If Jews are smart — and if they watch this tape — they’ll realize that the base of the Democratic Party simply does not support Israel, even if the DNC quashes their votes.
Much more on this from Ben here.
