Resurrection: DNC Overrules Delegates, Rams God and Jerusalem Back into Platform
Breitbart ^ | 5 Sep 2012, 2:12 PM PDT | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 09/05/2012 11:15:58 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

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.

I love this. After embarrassing questions from some media outlets (like Fox News - see Dick Durbin’s bizarre reaction to Brett Baier’s interview), the Dems tried to quietly slip the God and Jerusalem refererences back into the platform, lest they alienate both the Jewish and Evangelical vote, and hoped that would be the end of it. But, the braying mass of radical liberals they brought to the convention nearly shouted down Villaraigosa as he tried to get the two thirds majority assent (by voice vote- so democratic). So now the story is how the Dems are split over these issues. And on the eve of Zero’s big speech! Love it!

By the way, the Democrats who were behind this move by the Democrat Party establishment to ram "God" and "Jerusalem" down the true believers' throats should be personally phoned and thanked by Mitt Romney. By publicly flip-flopping the way they did, the rats called 100x more attention to their initial stupidity. Now, everybody has heard about how the rats recklessly exposed their atheist, antisemitic souls and then sloppily tried to cover up their mistake.

I cannot believe the rats imploded this badly, this ignominiously.

That’s possible, but I honestly think it was the wing-nut delegates that rammed this through. I think their platform committee went rogue.

Look, I don’t think the DNC gives one hoot about God, Israel, or Jerusalem. That still doesn’t mean they don’t want to hoodwink the populace into thinking they do.

Die-hard Lefties see no need for pretense, so they cut the language. The leaders do, and having been called on it, they forced the language back in.

That’s my take on it.

Funniest part of the whole thing was just before the multiple votes to drill more holes in the bottom of the sinking ship, I couldn’t figure out whether I wanted the vote to succeed or fail.

Imagine how Mayor ViagraLaRaza felt while reading that on the teleprompter and confronted with the evidence from his OWN EARS that proved the opposite.

I guess it doesn’t matter. He finally caved and ate the bullet.

...the Dems tried to quietly slip the God and Jerusalem references back into the platform...

I'll admit I do not know the whole convention structure in regards to what constitutes a quorum in this situation. Apparently a voice vote will do. But what I haven't seen mentioned is the fact that the hall was at the most filled to a third of it's capacity. That is this move to reinstall the 2008 language was purposely introduced at a time when the lowest delegate count is in their seats.

So in the hall were more of the "regular" Joe and Jane schmos that have limited power and so the powers that be calculated that they, as the good lower-rung sheep that they are, would be easier to persuade by the "aura" of it all. In fact, these folks are the true believers that don't see all the behind-the-scenes BS that reveals the true hypocritical, power-driven elite that purposely continue policies that will never achieve their intended goals but in fact guarantee an expansion of the very problem while adding a few more. These rank-and-file folks responded honestly not only to the sheer blatant manipulation of the voice votes but the actual issues of God and Israel. They only responded as they had been taught.

PS: Thanks C-Span for adding to the clips potency by showing that angry couple sporting the "Arab American Democrat" sign and their visceral anger when they realized it was a done deal. It once again proved that Democrats can never be honest peace brokers between Israel and the PA.

PSS: I noticed the liberal MSM tried to argue that there was minimal booing. I then watched the full clip and as the proposal was first made there were a couple low boos but nothing like the headlines I had just seen. But OH! when the deal was finalized that reaction was devastating and clear made the headlines clearly spot-on.

I didn’t hear any 2/3rds voice vote, it sounded much closer to even. Which is disgusting, but not totally surprising.

They should’ve taken a state-by-state vote but deliberately avoided that. The person stuck with that job was decidedly flustered.

Who made the uproar that forced the ham-fisted reversal?

Could not have said it better myself. Now, we must exploit this in the Jewish and Evangelical communities. Show them how the Dems really did not want this but it was forced on them by the Party elitists and then the majority of the Delegates angrily booed God and Jerusalem. I doubt the Romney camp will touch this, but, I hope a Super Pac will pick it up. What do some of you FReepers think?

It required a 2/3 Vote per their By-Laws. It did not even get 50 percent.

Once the media got hold of the fact that the Dems omitted God and Jerusalem from the Platform and began asking questions, the Dems starting soiling their pants because they saw this becoming a "big deal" that could cost them Jewish and Evangelical votes. So, they tried to "correct" it and just made it worse. YA GOTTA LOVE THIS!!!
Actually, I do not see how any true Jew or Evangelical could vote for the Muslim in the White House anyhow. I guess some people choose Entitlements over Faith.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the party chairman, said both the God and Jerusalem omissions were “essentially a technical oversight.” She insisted in a CNN interview there had been no discord on the floor and said the vote definitely met the two-thirds threshold.

This b*tch definitely has a severe mental deficiency when it comes to understanding reality.

Eh God? Who needs Him? Our convention will boo him.
Jerusalem? Israel, we shouldn’t support it or the Jews.
Successful people? Who needs em? Let’s tax them heavily! They’re evil.
Small businesses? We’ll tax them to death if they’re successful.
Small business owners? Screw them! They didn’t build it anyway!
Christians? Who cares what they think!
Workers? Oh we’ll get around to them, but first things first...
The military? We’ll praise it as we defund it...
KIA military? We’ll praise them and auto-pen the condolence letter...

Clinton was right. No president could fully repair all this damage.

I want a technically savvy and capable Freeper to subject the voice votes to audio analysis to determine the amplitude levels and present them graphically.

Such an analysis would prove beyond any doubt or lie or rationalization that the voting exercise was not only a sham, but an embarrassing losing sham.

Coupled with the disasterous move indoors, the sham vote would make this convention the case study for political science students on how not to hold a convention. This convention will be the subject of graduate degrees on political failure

Levin played the straight audio without the media compressing the peaks. The NAYS were twice as loud... by at least 3db and perhaps as much as 5db louder than the YEAS.
