Oh my: Boos at convention as Dems reinstate language on God and Jerusalem in platform;
Hot Air ^ | 9/5/2012 | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/05/2012 3:22:48 PM PDT by middlegeorgian

The amazing conclusion to yesterday’s snafu involving the Democratic platform’s language on Israel. After an evening of bad press they decided to reinsert the language about Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, along with some language about God after people noticed that the phrase “God-given” in the 2008 platform had been dropped in the new one. Simple process, in theory: Have someone from the floor propose adding the new language, then let the delegates approve it via a voice vote. The result? A trainwreck so awful that even Paul Begala didn’t try to spin it.

As you’ll see, Villaraigosa’s astonishment that there are so many nays is palpable, and pure gold. Reporters were taken aback too:

Democrats are showing their true colors this week. I'm sure the media will do everything they can to hide this debacle.

Whoa Nelly!!!

ROTFLMAO!!!

I gotta say, I am enjoying the DNC a lot more than I enjoyed the RNC. Not that ours was bad, but for sheer comedy, this takes the cake!

Someone on Fox Business Network who saw this go down said that this might be the moment that Obama loses the election. God I hope so!

IMHO, it is an insult to God to invite Him into that unholy EEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL place anyways. Should have just left sleeping dogs lie.

Oh yes. And a sign about Arab-American Democrats.

Probably just an oversight it didn’t say “indigenous muslims”.

I took a screen shot of the Utube of the amendments and posted it on my Facebook. I then shared the video on Facebook. We must make this go viral! This is a HUGE mistake on the Democrats part. The more people of faith that see this, the more will decide not to vote for ANY Democrats!

Already on YouTube. This is going to go viral. The mask has come off the face of the democrat party. Everyone is going to see exactly what they are. I understand it's also going viral on Twitter. Don't know, but Facebook is probably also lit up.

The first two votes appear almost equally yeas and nays. The final, IMO, is more nays. The amendments had to pass by a 2/3 majority. It appears it went down in defeat yet Villagrosa rammed it through by fiat.

Day 1. DNC takes the word God out.

Day 2. Threats of lightning and thunderstorm; DNC moves the site indoors

Day 2. DNC puts the word God back

The “noes” were louder. Why was this railroaded through? There’s no way that it passed with two-thirds “ayes”.

It is already on my Facebook page and I normally don't do politics on Facebook. It is a must that the average Joe see this. It will not be on ABC, CBS, or NBC tonight. Facebook and Twitter may be the thing that saves this country by providing the truth to the masses.

Exactly. A 2/3 majority should be TWICE as loud as the opposition. Someone’s going to take a decibel meter to this and have some fun with it.

The arab/muslim dude was angry! They almost pulled it off.

I suppose they’ll just have to form the sharia party from the grassroots and in full view of Americans.

The MSM will either neglect this story completely, or report simply that Obama has it in his platform. There is NO WAY they will show the booing, because it is an election killer to every Dem running.

What’s amazing is that they took three separate votes with the same result each time. The woman standing to the left finally says, I think, “We’re gonna do what we have to do anyway...” or something to that effect. I was surprised they caught it on audio.

One point that shouldn’t fall between the cracks on this is that Villagrosa ruled it passed over its obvious failing. They needed 2/3 in favor and got, at best 50/50. In fact, I’d say the final vote was heavy on the nays. This means it was passed by fiat, not floor vote. That’s also very important and should be noted in any discussion about this. I was illegally passed.

Now that is funny stuff.

So God is in the heaven pacing around, listening to the proceedings, wondering how it’s going to go. They like Me. Oh, wait, they don’t like me. Oh, good, they really do like me.

Collectivism. It makes the mind small.

Just commented and sent the video to a (Jewish) friend who has an e-mail list Google would envy that the Democrats in Charlotte have one upped Philadelphia. The latter just booed Santa Claus. The DNC went two steps better (worse, actually) and booed both G*d and the Holy City of Jerusalem. This IS going viral.
