There was another political party which abused God and didnít want Jews on their platform either

It happened about 80 years ago. In Germany.

Sensing the political firestorm coming, democrats scrambled to insert God and Jerusalem back into their platform, having intially rejecting them.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Needled by Mitt Romney and other Republicans, Democrats hurriedly rewrote their convention platform Wednesday to add a mention of God and declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel after President Barack Obama intervened to order the changes.

The embarrassing reversal was compounded by chaos and uncertainty on the convention floor, requiring three votes before a ruling that the amendments had been approved. Many in the audience booed the decision.

The episode exposed tensions on Israel within the party, put Democrats on the defensive and created a public relations spectacle as Obama arrived in the convention city to claim his party's nomination for a second term.

The language in the party platform — a political document — does not affect actual U.S. policy toward Israel. The administration has long said that determining Jerusalem's status is an issue that should be decided in peace talks by Israelis and Palestinians.

Obama intervened directly to get the language changed both on Jerusalem and to reinstate God in the platform, according to campaign officials who insisted on anonymity to describe behind-the-scenes party negotiations. They said Obama's reaction to the omission of God from the platform was to wonder why it was removed in the first place.

Lederman and Pace may have Obama wondering why the language was removed in the first place, but Obama apparently did know about it and raised no objection.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two platform planks sparked division at the Democratic National Convention here Wednesday.

Things got so bad that President Barack Obama was forced to personally intervene, ordering language mentioning God and naming Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel be added.

Obama had seen the language prior to the convention, a campaign source said, but did not seek to change it until after Republicans jumped on the omissions of God and Jerusalem late Wednesday. And even then, it had to be forced through a convention hall full of delegates who nearly shouted down the change.

This wasn't done out of any belief system. democrats at the convention booed the change and they have made it clear that they want nothing to do with God or Israel.

Crazy good headline and scary that it is completely accurate. Team Obama counts on people not connecting the dots - look at the parallel between the OWS movement at the German brownshirts from 80 years ago, e.g. It isn’t some coincidence that they were booing God and Israel last night.

Except The Nazi party didn’t have eighty percent of Jews promising to vote for it no matter what.

The German language in the photo is really butchered...

Otherwise, it’s perfect.

Shows how phony the socialist democrats are. If they cared anything about either this FIASCO would have never occurred.
They think by inserting them at the last second makes everything OK. It actually makes everything FAR WORST FOR THEM.

Americans never again have to ask how a free German people could have ELECTED Adolph Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933 despite all the warnings. The American voters did the same in 2008 by electing Obama.

The difference being is that Hitler was so adept at taking control of the population so quickly through power, intimidation and fear.

The Nazis had God as part of their party platform.

Point #24 of their 25 points.

We demand freedom for all religious denominations, provided that they do not endanger the existence of the State or offend the concepts of decency and morality of the Germanic race. The Party as such stands for positive Christianity, without associating itself with any particular denomination. It fights against the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and around us, and is convinced that a
permanent revival of our Nation can be achieved only from within, on the basis of:
Public Interest before Private Interest.

Obama has surpassed NAZI Germany.

Germans in 1938 weren't able to look back upon what happened in 1938 and thereafter.

We know and all the world knows.

Obama's evil nature is there for all to see.

Grievance, envy, hatred, retribution!

Marxism...Communism!

If he somehow wins (and it will be only my subterfuge if he wins)...those who love freedom and God must go underground. They must hide their movement.

The battle front for humanity will have made a seismic shift.

Now we must defeat those in the minority who wish to enslave us. We must once again defeat a new King George.

We must not for a moment consider that Obama is the leader of this effort...he is, so far, a puppet. Unless and until, of course, he rises above his current puppet status as result of a new "possession" of this vessel known as Barry Soetoro.

We must be alert to signs of his transformation.

There were, however significant numbers of influential Jews, nationalistic ones who had served in WWI (Iron Cross, brave German Jews) who then served in the Freikorps and Berlin police and elsewhere in the country. These people believed in what was to happen for nationalistic reasons— and only later realized (much too late) what was in store for them.

One could almost believe this today, if somehow the dems could contrive to make being a liberal a nationalistic patriotic move (like getting us into a war— like FDR did). This is how it’s done. Appalling really.

And Hitler spoke to the innate inner hatreds carried throughout Weimar depression in the working class. Utilizing the socialist/communist labor movement to blame the “bankers”. Sound familiar?

The SA were out of work males, who were put on a very low subsistence salary, and tasked with street harassment of jews, and any one who wasn’t aryan. The SA was composed of both socialists and communists. F.A. Hayek discusses this thoroughly. It was easy to coopt people with no job.

Organized in threes, and off the grid, and well prepared.

Yep...like legs of a stool.

November will tell us which way to go.

An existential event!

Obama’s job is about half finished, which is why he is pining for 4 more years.

Even Satan knows God’s name. Look for the fruit of the spirit. The Nazi fruit was smoke from crematoriums. The fruit of the Democrat party is dead babies in plastic bags.

It gives me the willies. And from what I have read Jewish leftists did not catch on to serious danger of Hitler until it was too late. :(

What happened to that “never forget!” promise? Obama is serious. He really does not want Israel to exist in the globalists’ planned Islam area of the world.
