After Democrats deleted God and Jerusalem from their platform, confirming their intention to turn their back on both, they unleashed such a firestorm of bad PR they were forced to shoehorn them back in. The reaction from the rank and file was disturbingly revealing:
The embarrassing reversal was compounded by chaos and uncertainty on the convention floor. Three times Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chairman, called for a voice vote on the changes and each time the yes and no votes seemed to balance each other out. On the third attempt, Villaraigosa ruled the amendments were approved — triggering boos from many in the audience. …
“There was no discussion. We didn’t even see it coming. We were blindsided by it,” said Noor Ul-Hasan, a Muslim delegate from Salt Lake City, who questioned whether the convention had enough of a quorum to even amend the platform.
“The majority spoke last night,” said Angela Urrea, a delegate from Roy, Utah. “We shouldn’t be declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
Muslims, Islamophiles, and other enemies of Western Civilization prefer to think of it as Al Quds, rather than the Israeli capital. In contrast, Romney wants to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Prominent Jewish Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claims not to know Obama’s stand on Jerusalem. If he had seen 2016, which explains Obama’s pernicious antineocolonial ideology and general hatred of Western Civilization, Schumer could easily guess.
As for God: What use could a party that prominently features a slut demanding that Catholics be forced to pay for her birth control have for God? The DNC has even banned local churches from distributing gift baskets for ideological reasons.
