Wednesday, September 5, 2012 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:35:49 PM PDT by kristinn

The Democratic National Convention has descended in to chaos today both inside and outside the Time Warner arena in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Following the debacle earlier today of the ramming through over the loud objections of delegates of pro-God, pro-Israel language to the platform, fire marshalls have locked down the arena leaving a reported thousands of credentialed delegates and reporters stranded outside.

Reporters on Twitter are sending out on scene reports and photographs with commentary such as "mayhem", "fail" and "farce".

"Democratic convention descending into farce. After "booing God" debacle, delegates, and media locked out of the convention by fire marshals" , Nico Hines, Times of London.

"Complete nightmare for the DNC. Thousands of delegates and media stuck outside. Fire marshals have closed the building. #DNCFAIL", Matt Spence, Times of London.

The fire department got the wrong idea when they said there was a flamer on the stage.

No word on why they locked down? Human sacrifice?

Oh wait, that’s not funny...

Do you have a source for this? Brings back memories of 1968 if true.



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

That’s funny, especially since their original theme was unity compared to the ‘lack’ of unity they say was the rnc convention.

One of the tweets is from Dana (urk) Milbank.

So, no we don’t have a source.

Epic fail is how they’ve run the country. No surprise they can’t even run a convention.

Maybe al-Jazeerah or the pro-Hamas delegates are acting up.

Like it or not, these people actually represent a segment of our populace, and their behavior embarrasses me as a fellow U. S. citizen. People from around the world see this disgusting display, and ponder the decline of our homeland. Frankly, so do I.

The Democrats have trained their minions to be disagreeable, disruptive, and destructive. Once infected, the leadership now finds that even their delegates to the Democrat National Convention have come down with the SWINE flu, and they must keep delegates segregated for their own safety.

Have fun reaping what you have sewn Democrat leaders.

Just know that there is one thing I share with you. I am sorry to see what you have ushered in under the name of reasoned disagreement with other citizens.

You are a disgrace to us all, and we’ve been saying so for 40 years now. Finally by God, you agree.

Everyone thought the Republican National Convention cutting out one day was going to cause problems, but that convention went off very well indeed.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Convention has become chaotic and has provided a LOT of fodder for a many Romney campaign commercials.

Maybe he is going to give a speech in Yiddish that ends in "God Bless America" to try to patch over this mess.
