At their national convention in Charlotte, N.C., “Democrats had approved a platform on Tuesday that made no mention of God or Jerusalem,” according to the AP. Even President Obama took note of these “omissions,” and he, “personally intervened to order Democrats to change language in their party platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, campaign officials said Wednesday.” Despite the party’s top man trying to perform damage control:
The platform changes did not sit well with some Democratic delegates gathered in Charlotte, N.C., for the party’s three-day convention. Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates had objected. He called for a vote three times before ruling. [Watch video below.]
That’s how extreme the Democratic Party has become, banning G#d and attacking Israel during their national convention. This behavior is what one might expect from hardcore Marxist-Leninists, not the party which produced great politicos like Harry S. Truman and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Of course, most Democrats at the convention are extremists, completely out of touch with main street U.S.A. More than 9 in 10 Americans believe in God, while “sympathy for Israel was 61% compared to 19% for the Palestinians,” as measured by Gallup in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
This pathetic behavior is another example of how far Left the Democratic Party has swung, hopefully enough to get President Obama and many Democrats thrown out of the White House and Congress in the November elections, respectively.
