OK. How do we make this video go viral ?
If I were the delegates, I would find Obama’s sand sculpture, and throw a an open can of tuna on it, then pack up and go home.
Is that the way they’re going to count the votes in November?
Why should the Democrats be surprised when the leftist mob that makes up their base acts like leftists?
My son was right. He said all the DNC speakers (Michelle, ViagraLaRaza) speak DOWN to the audience as if they were children.
AND YOU KNOW, it is exactly what they BELIEVE.
They were not about to let the 'delegates' have their way.
My grandmother, a die hard union & lifetime Democrat Brooklyn Jew, just called me.
I forgot how terrorizing Yiddish sounds when it is spoken in such furious anger.
I just checked out DemocratUnderground and they mostly seem to be on the side of the Booers and are calling the DNC sell outs.
But you know that they really don’t mean either statement.
Maybe they should try throwing peanuts.
Wow! I usually don’t click to links but that one is definitely worth it if you are interested in God or Jerusalem! It is also an interesting lesson in how the party steamrolls the delegates.
Without any doubt in my mind they did NOT get the 2/3 vote in favor of putting God back into their platform, and clearly they did not want to assert that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
I hope this does become a controversy. Let America see what the leaders of the Democratic party really believe. I hope they get trounced. Seems that their party needs to learn the hard way all the time.
I agree. Exactly what she was 'saying'.
And yet... Mayor "V" ignored her and DECLARED the YEA's the WINNAH!
Must have been that 'voice' in his earpiece saying, "Ignore the (female dog), declare it passed."
Democratic Convention Proceedings Expose Rank and File Split on Israel
Jerusalem Fight Underscores the Israel Gap in this Election
(September 5, 2012) The Republican Jewish Coalition notes with grave concern that delegates to the Democratic Convention voiced significant opposition to efforts to amend the party platform so as to reinstate pro-Israel language from previous years.
Rank and file Democrats expressed strong opposition to a resolution to reinstate pro-Israel language that had been removed from the 2012 platform, forcing convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa to call the voice vote three times. Each time the Nos were noticeably stronger; in fact, CNN reporter Dana Bush was quoted as saying, It seemed pretty to clear to me that the Nos had it. (1)
There were loud boos from the convention floor when the chairman overruled the delegates and announced that the resolution passed.
See video of the vote and response here.
RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said, This is a very sad day. To hear delegates on the floor of the Democratic convention strongly voice their opposition to recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, then boo when the chairman passes the resolution to adopt that language, is a shock.
Brooks continued, This unfortunate incident highlights the split among rank and file Democrats when it comes to the critical issue of Israel, something weve seen for some time. Gallup polling has shown that Republicans have been consistently more likely to support Israel than Democrats for over a decade.(2) It is painful to see that demonstrated so clearly in this national forum.
(2) According to a Gallup poll released on March 2, 2012, Republicans continue to be far more likely than independents or Democrats to sympathize with the Israelis. In that poll, Republican support for Israel was 78 percent while Democrat support was at 53 percent, a 25-point difference. The graph at the link shows the deep split in Republican/Democrat support for Israel over time. http://www.gallup.com/poll/153092/americans-continue-tilt-pro-israel.aspx
SUPER video! Stunning! Thanks for posting BUMP!
A renunciation of G_d and Israel...talk about a party that has no foundation!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
As I'll note on all these threads, good thing it was a voice vote, cause I don't think that was 2/3. The boos were a nice touch.
All of which misses the point, why were G-d and Jerusalem taken out? Is that why they were concerned about having The One accept the nomination outdoors, lightening and all?
The only way God wouldn’t be booed at a Democratic convention is if he’s called Allah.
I bet Valeria Jarrett’s head was EXPLODING with anger. Yikes.
I forgot how terrorizing Yiddish sounds when it is spoken in such furious anger.
Good for her! I can't remember who said something like 'So soon young, so late smart'.
I guess that applies to most of us.
It's wonderful that she has started to figure out that she was a conservative all along.
Democrat Convention Theme Song:
You put the God in
You take the God out
You put the God back in
and the delegates scream and shout
You do the flippy-floppy
and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!
OMG...see how far we've fallen...The Clintons might be too good for the train wreck that is Obama's Dem Party.
In my opinion this is a "God thing." God has forced the hand of the weak minded Democrats. They have displayed their actual contempt for Him, for Israel, and for God's word.
The Democrat party is the party of Satan. That isn't an exaggeration, it is a fact.
Abortion. Homosexuality. Covertness. Idolatry. Immorality. And hatred of Israel.
It couldn't be more obvious.
"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem."
Let the whores of the Satanic democrat party drink their poison before the entire country and the entire world.
Let Barack Hussein Obama spew his lies before his cult worshipers.
God has spoken.
Part of their mantra about “making the right decision” when one is shtruggling.
Fits right in with healthcare, executive orders, and all other sorts of shtuffing down our throats.
She is angry now. We’ll see if she remembers that in November. She probably won’t vote for either candidate.
This video is pure GOLD. LOL!!!
That would work out well. :-)
To me, it sounded like slightly more wanted the change, than did not. It surprised me, but being cynical, I wonder how many affirmatives were shouted because those Dems realized Obama would be most definitely sunk if they didn’t.
They are exposed as the party of God-haters, racists, cheaters, vote stealer's, baby killers, and sodomites.
When light is shone on their behavior and their deeds, they look like the villains that they really are.
Here is the problem:
- at least 50% of our nation are greedy, vapid, baby killing liars themselves.
- Over 100 million of our population are on some kind of welfare.
- Over 25 million of our "citizens" are really illegal aliens.
- 49% of our population pay no Federal income taxes, yet Billions are given away in IRS kick backs to these non-taxpayers and they call it "Earned Income Tax Credits."
Clearly, God is judging our nation. He is using these vile people's own words and actions to judge them by.
"The righteous despise the unjust; the wicked despise the godly."
UNDERSTAND THIS FREEPERS; ENEMIES OF GOD ARE MY ENEMIES!
I am pretty sure a good chunk of non-secular Jews woke up today and are not going to vote.
Especially the seniors. I’m sure the pocketbook slammed shut as well.
Wow, that was even worse than Boehner’s ram-through. The “Arab American Democrats” don’t look too happy.
Suddenly this confusion makes a whole lot more sense.
DNC railroads God & Jerusalem.flv 16MB (flash video)

note: originally titled "DNC railroads its own delegates in the name of God & Jerusalem""
I watched the video of the vote here:
The question for Mayor Villaraigosa (The chair) is this ... how did he come up with the opinion that 2/3 of the Dems present voted “Yea” to the amendment?
I looked at the video and there were as many vehement “No’s” as “Yes” ....
It looks like the Mayor just made a decision to adopt it on the fly, pushing the platform down the Democrats’ throat without the benefit of a count.
How different is this from the Dems pushing Obamacare down America’s throat inspite of the 2010 election results?
“You don’t like Obamacare? Congratulations, you got it anyway!!”
So, in other words, Roberts is saying “the chair is empty”.
Typical BO BS.
I clicked and it said 306 views. How could this only have 306 views?
the Dems for so long have been appeasing certain groups that in the end it woudl come to an head and we that it is here.
Homosexuals with muslims with heathens, nah nothing was to be expected there LOL
Update: Politico's Dylan Byers is watching the cable nets for reaction. As of 7:05 ET:
In today's edition of "choose your own adventure" news, the amount of times the word "Jerusalem" was mentioned on each channel between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. today:
Fox News: 33 times
CNN: 16 times
MSNBC: 0 times
Update: Byers updates to say that MSNBC finally got around to mentioning the Jerusalem language in the Democrats’ platform in the 7 p.m. hour tonight.
All I can say is WOW! Villairigosa was totally flumoxed!
Wellstone Memorial 2012? We’ll see!
Perhaps it was SHE who delivered the message to the committee...good point. She would have made a new day for them...
LOL! That clip was priceless. There is NO way that 2/3’s voted “aye” there.
Lotsa unhappy lefties in Charlotte tonight, LOL!
It was 50-50.
People need to see this.
I clicked it sometime around 6:00 EDT - 306 views. Again some 10 minutes later to show my husband the video, again 306 views. Just now at 8:17 EDT, again 306 views. Something isn't right with their counter - should we be surprised?
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people devise a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 Let us break Their bonds asunder, and cast away Their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure:
6 Yet have I set My King upon My holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: The Lord hath said unto Me, Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee.
8 Ask of Me, and I shall give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them to pieces like a potters vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings; be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.
Oh, my gosh, does that look bad. Even Paul Begala isn’t trying to spin how that looks.
I think 306 views is where YouTube stops counting until it validates the views are authentic, to prevent automatic views to inflate view count.
I have been laughing my ass off at the Dems all day,,my sides hurt! My God,,if Obama told them all to pack up and go to Indonesia, they’d do it...He tells them,,NO, ORDERS THEM, to put GOD in their platform.
It just does not get any clearer. I cannot imagine any Indie thinking that the Dems are the party of sanity after today. I am fatigued from all the laughing I’ve been doing. Oh and guess who has stayed above all the fray?
The RNC, Romney and Ryan,,aka “The Adults”
It’s standard for YouTube clicker to stall for long periods of time (it seems to always be around 300) but all the views will eventually show up in bulk.
