Under Pressure and Amidst Boos, DNC adds God and Jerusalem to their Platform!

Wow, talk about caving under pressure!  The Democrats are walking back their actions to remove Jerusalem and God from their platform.  Why are they always walking things back – I thought their motto was ‘Forward’?!?

Amendment 1

Page 32, Line 48:  We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make to most of their God-given potential.

Amendment 2

Page 63, Line 26:  Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.  The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.

Amidst boos and multiple votes, the DNC have now added Jerusalem and God to their platform and, although they claim it was by a 2/3 vote as required, it didn’t sound that way to me.  Listen and you be the judge:

 

 

It sounds like our Arab and atheist friends were booing the changes.  What does that say about the Party?

  1. “What does that say about the Party?” Not much, the dissenters were really angry the Muslims and communists were shaking their fist and booing. Kind of looked like the gates of hell to me.

  2. Reblogged this on danmillerinpanama and commented:
    The Democrats in Convention Assembled seemed to have a minor problem. Their platform had intentionally omitted to mention the words “God” and “Jerusalem.” It had also seemed to lean further left and away from Israel than the 2008 platform.

    Not to worry. It has been fixed. Despite boos from the Democrats Assembled and an apparent inability to get a favorable super majority floor vote, they did it in the ObamaWay, by the equivalent of an Executive Order from on high.

    Democracy in Action!

  3. I happen to be watching at the time they “voted” for this. Excuse but the NO’s had it. Lots of upset people at the DNC because it was clearly defeated.
