Up until today, the Democratic platform for 2012 excluded any reference to God and did not state that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
OK – so we all know that today’s Democrats want God out of all of our lives and we know that the Obama administration doesn’t believe Jerusalem is the capital of Israel or, at best, believes it is not yet decided!
So excluding God and Jerusalem from the DNC platform seems true to Democrat values.
Stop the tapes…..TODAY at the DNC, a vote was taken to restore God and Jerusalem to the platform.
Democratic big-wigs faced an embarrassing revolt Wednesday as they put references to God and Jerusalem’s status back in the November election platform despite strong opposition from members.
Amid boos at the DNC (booing God and Israel, by the way), opposition to the change seemed to be stronger than those for it, but the bumbling Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa adopted it anyway.
So why the change of heart by Dem leadership? Because they don’t want God in our country and they don’t support Jerusalem as the capital of Israel….but they can’t “preach” it. Once the GOP pounced on their platform omissisions, these core beliefs were out there for the “undecideds” and “moderates” to see!
Politics is what motivates them, folks….not values, not the people, not their own delegates…..but VOTES.
But thanks in large part to the influence of Jewish voters in key battleground states like Florida, relations with Israel are a hot button issue in US elections.
The revisions came as Obama struggles to win support from white working-class voters, many of whom have strong religious beliefs, and as Republicans try to woo Jewish voters and contributors away from the Democratic Party. Republicans claimed the platform omissions suggested Obama was weak in his defense of Israel and out of touch with mainstream Americans.
Of course, true to their values about God and Israel, Republicans included God and Jerusalem in their platform last week. And Romney had something to say about the political switcheroo at the DNC today:
GOP officials argued that not taking a position on Jerusalem’s status in the party platform raised questions about Obama’s support for the Mideast ally. Romney said omitting God “suggests a party that is increasingly out of touch with the mainstream of the American people.”
“I think this party is veering further and further away into an extreme wing that American’s don’t recognize,” Romney said.
That last quote is an understatement….The DNC is so far left it’s going to meet up with the Republicans on the other side if their not careful. 🙂
And Romney’s spokeswoman rightfully calls Obama out on his flip-flop anti-Israel stance:
“Mitt Romney has consistently stated his belief that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” said Andrea Saul, Romney’s spokeswoman. “President Obama has repeatedly refused to say the same himself. Now is the time for President Obama to state in unequivocal terms whether or not he believes Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.”
Ace of Spades summed up the Democrat platform and convention nicely:
Democrats 2012: Yay abortion! Boo God!
