Yesterday, Democrats held an embarrassing voice vote on whether the word “God” should be reinstated into their platform.
God had been omitted from the platform earlier in the week.
Allen West has responded by releasing the following ad which states, “Three Times They Said No to God“.
The ad shows the disaster that developed on the convention floor in which Democrats vehemently booed and screamed as the resolution was forced through against their wishes. It concludes with Wolf Blitzer stating, “Who would’ve thought the word ‘God’ would’ve been so controversial?”
Democrats held a voice vote yesterday in an attempt to get God and Jerusalem back onto their platform. Republicans had roundly ripped President Obama and the Democrats after it was discovered that the language had been omitted in the party’s official platform.
It was a clear attempt to pander to the pro-Israeli vote, after the sudden realization that Americans do actually like their government supporting its closest ally in the Middle East. And it was a clear attempt to reverse an embarrassing situation in which Democrats were revealed as the Godless party.
The voice vote required two-thirds majority to get God and Jerusalem back into the platform, and as you can see by this video it was an epic disaster on the floor of the DNC.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, whose main job is to constantly lie about everything in front of her said, “It was absolutely a two-thirds”. Watch that video again – there is absolutely no way they had a two-thirds majority. CNN’s Anderson Cooper agreed, calling Wasserman-Scultz’ interpretation “an alternate reality”.
“Sad is the only way to describe what happened tonight at the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. It took three roll calls for Kirsten Gillibrand and the Democrats to ram through the obvious, first an acknowledgement that ‘God’ belongs in their party platform and second that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. (They owe) an apology for this profoundly disturbing display.”
Democrat Strategist Paul Begala on CNN: “Beyond awkward. It’s embarrassing. It’s stupid. It’s an unforced error by my party.”
CNN”s John King: “Normally you count your ducks. If you’re going to fix something in an open convention, you count your ducks first. That was embarrassing.”
King would later add this – “This is Keystone Cops”:
“Can you imagine a nation founded on the principles of God is being taken over by a party that despises God, denies God’s existence and wants to stab Israel in the back in order to support the Islamists who would kill the Jews and drive them out of the Middle East?” he asked.
Things are so bad after this fumble that chief Democrat operatives have had to cancel interviews today.
What a joke.
The shocking part here is that they ever actually had God in the platform to begin with.
Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.
This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:
“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 the most of their God-given potential.”
Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:
“We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”
I suppose it would be difficult to include God in a platform that also “opposes any effort” to stop abortion.
Democrats at the 2012 Democratic National Convention are set to approve a platform today that is unambiguously pro-abortion and opposes any effort whatsoever to stop any abortions. The platform also calls on forcing Americans to pay for abortions at taxpayer expense.
The platform Democrats will approve rejects efforts to stop forcing taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business and supports the Obama HHS mandate that forces religious groups to pay for and refer women for abortion-causing drugs under Obamacare.
Here is an excerpt of the exact wording on their abortion stance:
The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.
And so it is… Democrats are waging a War on God, Catholics, women, and children.
Recently, the principal at PS 90 in New York City made headlines when she deemed the patriotic ballad “God Bless the USA” too controversial for her kindergarten classes to sing during a graduation ceremony. Some parents at the school decided to respond by holding a rather patriotic ceremony of their own, organizing for the children to sing the song on the school playground.
That’s when the protesters showed up and gave the kids a lesson in how not to act in public if you’re over the age of five.
The crux of the problem seems to be that the protesters disliked that the rally had a political flavor. True, Rep. Bob Turner (R-NY) was in attendance for the musical celebration, and he is running for the U.S. Senate seat against Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand – but he was invited by the parents.
The libs, as they often do, ignored that fact, misplaced their anger, and a chaotic scene broke out.
From Fox News Radio (h/t Todd Starnes):
“I thought it would be a great idea,” Turner said. “The kids were a delight.”
According to video of the incident, boys and girls were waving American flags and singing “God Bless the USA” when adults began swarming and shouting.
They were shouting down the kids as they were singing,” Turner told Fox News Radio. “This was really bad form.”
The website Politicker transcribed some of the protest.
“You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don’t do that here,” one of the hecklers said. “This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad.”
You don’t do what here? Support your country? Sing songs? What don’t you do that only Republicans do? Express patriotism? Attend school?
And what exactly is ridiculous and sad here? Kids singing a song that professes their love of country? What’s sad is that anybody considers what the children and parents were doing as sad.
The report continues…
A Turner staffer can be heard off camera asking the protesters to stop – and to “let the kids sing.”
“The kids don’t even know what they’re singing,” the unidentified protester replied. “They got something you tell them to say. It’s ridiculous. It’s sad, sad, sad. You all are going to burn in hell. You all burn in hell. Shame on you. Shame on you.”
At one point, a tattooed protester cursed.
Let’s get this straight – you dislike pro-American songs, and you want children, their parents, and Republicans in general to burn in hell. I wonder what would happen if you said these things in a country that doesn’t allow freedom of speech you ignorant dolts.
Whatever one might feel about Turner’s presence at the event, nobody with an IQ that reaches triple digits should ever express their disdain by shouting, telling people to burn in hell, and cursing in front of children.
