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.
First off, the Democrats clearly were forcing the issue. They never had two-thirds of the votes to secure the change, and had to put the vote through three separate times. After the third attempt, the crowd was still clearly split, yet it was illegally ratified anyway.
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”.
Second, the optics of a crowd booing and screaming because God was put back on the party platform is incredibly bad.
New York Senate candidate Wendy Long had this to say about the incident:
“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.”
Even the normally compliant media had a field day with the Democrat delegates. Here is a sampling of the commentary coming from the media…
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”:
Radio host Michael Savage
thinks this could be a major turning point in the election.
“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.

Presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, was the victim of a ‘glitter bombing’ Saturday night, as he delivered remarks following a third place finish in the South Carolina primary. Glitter bombing is a supposed act of protest in which opponents are showered with glitter by leftists who support same-sex marriage policies. What exactly would cause grown men and women to perform an act that is seemingly drawn from the mind of a child?
In 2005, Michael Savage
famously wrote a book titled, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder,
the subject of which is self-explanatory. And more recently, Dr. Lyle Rossiter
, a board-certified clinical psychologist, wrote a book in which he diagnosed the ideology of the left as a tangible mental illness. Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).
The Mayo Clinic defines NPD as “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration.” This seems in tune with the fact that liberals, along with their degenerate offspring, the Occupy Wall Street movement, believe their policies and platforms fall in the majority – or the 99% if you will – despite being outnumbered by conservatives
at a 2-1 clip.
There are other symptoms that define NPD and the left alike…
Expecting constant praise and admiration
This is a staple of the Occupy movement and their constant ‘look at me’ media whoring. The need to feed their pride consumes them, fueling a self-importance that must continue to grow through perpetual media coverage.
Being jealous of others
The very premise on which the Occupy movement and the liberal platform of wealth redistribution are based is jealousy. They want what others have, and they want it without cost to themselves, either monetarily or based on time. They are envious of those with wealth, health insurance, homes, etc. It is a common attribute upon which all liberal protesters rally around.
Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
Is there anything that personified this more than the Obamacare fight? The measure was opposed by likely voters
by a wide margin, 54-41 percent. Yet it was still rammed down the collective throats of the American people. Why? Because liberals honestly thought that once the plebeians had a chance to see their ideas, they would go along with it. Proof of this materialized when Nancy Pelosi
uttered these famous words: “… We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
Setting unrealistic goals
Those crazy kids over at the OWS website, at one point gave us a list of humorous demands
that included these deep-seated liberal fantasies.
- Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment
- Free college education
- Open borders migration
- Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all
The liberal politician’s equivalent of this list would be:
- Extending unemployment benefits ad nauseam
- Student loan forgiveness
- Illegal immigration amnesty (DREAM Act)
- Postponement of foreclosures
All currently under consideration by the Obama administration.
A sense of entitlement
The liberal movement amounts to nothing more than making excuses to legitimize a platform of laziness and entitlements. We see this in the Occupy protests. Their solution to counter corporate greed is to steal from those that have worked hard to attain their level of wealth, and give to those who refuse to reach such a work ethic. Money for nothing, or entitlement, seems to be a birthright for the left.
Trouble keeping healthy relationships
Too easy. Does this sound like a group of individuals with relationship issues?
All of these symptoms seem to define an individual who is unable to express their frustration in a rational manner – hence the glitter bombing. The Mayo Clinic diagnosis seems to speak to the glitter-loving liberals directly:
“In order to make yourself feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and efforts to belittle the other person to make yourself appear better.”
Problem being; only you believe these actions make you look better.
In the end, Savage was right. Liberalism is a mental disorder. Just not a new one.
