Delegates boo adding “God” and “Jerusalem” back to the Democratic platform

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Many didn’t find it surprising that Democrats decided to take out references to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to God. The really shocking part came later when the leaders tried to put it back in, encountering boos from their delegates before ramming the references back into the platform. If you didn’t think the Democrats were scared before – you won’t believe what they did yesterday!

The Blaze reported:

DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa conducted a voice vote of the delegates on the proposed platform changes, asking for yeses and nos three times because of how similar the responses sounded. A two-thirds vote was required to adopt the change. Despite clear opposition, Villaraigosa declared the amendment had passed, prompting loud booing.

The changes reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “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” and of Jerusalem, “it is and will remain the capital of Israel.”

“First of all, the Democrats are not booing God.  They are not booing God here.  They are booing the system that is obviously corrupt.  This is the Barack Obama system.  It really is.  We’re going to put it out to a vote and let the people say what they want to say and we’re going to go around and we’re going to listen to your opinion.  Then they’ll pole vault, they will go under the fence, they will jump over the fence, climb through the window, they will do whatever they have to do.  They are going to do what they want to do,” Glenn said.

“This is one of the greatest signs ever.  I love this.  This is going to make you feel really good.  They are terrified of you.  They are absolutely terrified.  Do you remember, how many times did we say, ‘Hey, don’t, don’t feel like you’re alone.  You’re not alone.  WE Surround Them.’  And we had to convince each other that there are more of us than them.  They never believed that.  They just keep going and doing exactly what ‑‑ and they just jam it down everybody’s throat.  They’re no longer jamming it down your throat.  They’re jamming it down their own people’s throat now.  The good Democrats, they’re just jamming it down their throats.  And they are afraid,” Glenn said.

“They expected their people to just go along.  They didn’t.  Half of them, the good common sense Democrats, half of them said, yes, put that back in.  The other half, the militant half, said absolutely not,” Glenn explained.

“They are petrified.  You got ‘em.  They’re finally getting it.  (They are saying) ‘Holy cow, man, we’re in trouble.’  They’re finally getting it.  Now, whether they are or not remains to be seen because it’s one thing to say it.  It’s another thing to go out and vote.  Is there passion on our side?  I think there is.  And I think there’s growing passion on Mitt Romney.  But I’m telling you, you are so close to historic victory, historic victory.  We just have to finish it,” Glenn said.

    And so the great division among the party of Democrats has come to a head; those who want to have God and support Israel have seen the true demonic face of the corruption and the darkness that they have ignorantly allowed to grow in their own midst.

    Now they face the choice; confront the darkness and fight to reclaim and reform their party, leave their party, or accept it as is and thus unite with the darkness and corruption willingly. God help those who are truly yours to make the right choices and do as needs to be done.

    We have seen the other day the semblance of Democracy presented by a strong armed system; in which outcomes are already determined, and no matter what the people wish, they are ignored in the end. This is what we nearly are now; and if Obama has his way, what we shall become in his next term – a dictatorship with the trappings of freedom, but none of the power or authority to make change happen.

    So it is as a nation we face the same choice.

    The outcome of this voice vote was, in my opinion, politically motivated to attract religious indepedent voters. Unless the person taking the vote (3 times) was deaf, the vote, to my ear, was either a tie or a no against adopting the changes adding God and Jerusalem to the Democratic platform. Clearly it was NOT a two-thirds majority in favor of the change!

    Hey, don’t knock Harry Potter and JK. You’re acting like a liberal. I love the Harry Potter series but I certainly never believed I’d grow up to be a wizard. It would also be pretty far from reality if my parents were not moral, caring, and God loving.

    The reason we have a generation of lost children is because we stopped caring about how and what they learned in order to be considered a “prductive member of society with a meaningful job” as if raising our children was not more meaningful then a new tv or a better car. The women’s lib movement left out the equalization of men thus leaving noone to ask the kids how was your day? or do you have homework? or to teach them about personnel responsibility. The lost generation is not due to fiction, but to the lack of parenting to tell them this is fiction and not reality.

    James, the original post references Jesus son of God, not Jesus of Nazareth the historical figure, thus making it fiction. You can’t argue his logic, you can only try to convince yourself that because people agree that Jesus existed, that he is God making his post invalid.

    BS. The bible teaches helping others, the bible teaches temperance, turning the other cheek, loving your neighbor. These are things every human wants. Dems/progressives have a different view of how it should be done. They are not evil and perhaps their intentions are more in line with what the bible teaches. Imagine what Jesus would do if he were our president. Compare that to the republican stance on issues.

  • shane sitzman

    The story is not fiction, just the deduction that Jesus was more than a man. Either way, this has nothing to do with arrogance, it’s just sarcasm.

    Omeg … interesting that you feel you can use reason to disprove God. You can argue that the “proof” of God is not there … but in all of the billions of tax payer dollars spent to try to prove that creation could have happened w/out “a god” … they just keep proving themselves wrong and re-morphing the theories to work with the evidence against them. I’m sure you’ve figured out how to get around where the “eternal dust” came from, how the laws of thermodynamics were suspended, how the law of conservation of angular momentum was suspended, how irreducible complexity and abiogenesis make evolution require far more faith than Christianity … but your statement that God is fictional is far more absurd than the statement that He is real. If you claim God is not proven … you’d have a “reason”able chance … but in your assertion that He is fictional, you show your lack of logic skills.

  • shane sitzman

    Most people do. Thinking they somehow understand how macroeconomics work, believing in religion that they can’t possibly prove true, thinking they know what is going on with the entire country and world based on what the media portrays. Go play with your grandkids, go for a hike, learn something new and stop deluding yourself into thinking you have any say in what goes on or understand anything for certain, and enjoy life..

    That is an ignorant statement. Most wars are fought over religion. Most criminals are Christian, gang members, mobsters, drug dealers, all wearing their crosses. I do not believe in God and I teach my children about helping others, being a good citizen, charity and morality. You don’t have to be afraid of punishment or looking for God’s reward to be moral. And some people say it is a higher morality when it is not for those reasons. So, believe in your fairy tales but don’t think your beliefs make you any better than anyone else!

    Jeff, I respect your right to think that, but I disagree with you. I love God and Jesus and have welcomed them into my heart, mind and soul. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Harry Potter books and watching the movies. To have and encourage using your God-given imagination is a good thing.
    I agree that a whole lot of kids grow up in households without morals, caring or God-loving parents, whose parents raised them the same way. I think it’s depressing and very sad, but that’s the way it is.
    Some people are simply too lazy to raise their own children; some people don’t have what it takes and are not willing to make the sacrifices necessary to raise their kids the way they deserve to be raised; and others expect schools and others to teach their children things, while the courts decide what and how to teach.
    I’m sorry folks but it boils down to parental responsibility. Any old alley cat can get pregnant, but it takes a special person to be a good parent. God Bless and keep those who do a good job.

    the fact that the Democratic Party had to be told by the Republican
    Party “NOT TO LEAVE GOD OUT OF THE AGENDA” should tell you and others
    there what you should mention to the citizens of the USA….for Obama indeed
    made provision to include GOD but not by his own doing…but by the embarassment
    and political pressure to bring GOD back into the ‘one nation under GOD’
    agenda.And it came for the leadership of the Republican party to advise the
    democratic party that they were leading without GOD. (Amos 3: 3, “how can two
    walk together except they be agreed?….meaning how can the nation walk
    uprightly if they don’t include the one who even gave them the talents/gifts to
    do anything on earth…and they need to agree since He made all the world anyhow
    and knows best for our future).

    somebody pls remind Obama when he takes a vow for
    the most important office in the USA to remember to WHOM that vow was being made
    to…..He did ‘swear’ on a Bible…yet he could repent if he didn’t mean it or
    was ignorant of how important that vow might mean to GOD to whom the book is
    written about.

    Has anyone asked GOD if He even wants the
    job?….I mean somewhere in our USA history some evidentally thought
    GOD wanted the job of being HEAD over the nation and proclaimed that He
    is….”isnt’ that what ONE NATION UNDER GOD” means? Or did mankind give GOD
    something in words that they really didn’t understand?

    thought I would mention this, I think somebody
    should..

    ….If I saw thisI certainly would forward
    it to Mitt and Paul….it would make for a good polictical commercial…
    .but
    then again would they be all afraid of losing votes for the ones who might not believe
    that there is a GOD by doing such? think about it.
    I wouldn’t put the part
    about enforcing naming Jerusalem as the state capital as part of the commercial
    though cause surely there are those who would rather Americans not get involved
    in naming the capital of other countries for them….that is most likely why
    there were democrats who shouted ‘no’ when asked to approve the amended platform
    with the same sentence regarding adding GOD back into the democratic platform

    He also said judge rightly. The term judge should be used with grace and mercy as when Jesus was dealing with the harlot. He said “daughter, go and sin no more”. He did not condemn her but admonished and then forgave. It does not mean to not judge behavior.

    How well do you know/understand the Bible and the words of Jesus, Shane? Did he say give to me and I will distribute your money to those in need? Or did he illustrate that one should feed the hungary, clothe the naked, care for orphens and widows? Sorry, the libs seem to think that they should play the role of God and take YOUR money to give to those they deem are the ones in need. I CHOOSE to give my money to those to whom I deem to be in need, the hungary, the sick or frail elderly, or those who need shelter. Sorry, if that offends the gov’t that I don’t choose to supply Debbie with her free birth control pills or other contraceptives. Or donate my money to Betty so she can stay home with her 5 children from 5 different fathers and is looking for a man to father another child so she will receive, yet, another, larger check from the taxpayer.

    Not to change the subject, but how many of you have read “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis? This book was written, I believe, in the 1930s. Very prophetic but I thought it was about Clinton at the time. Another author is Oscar Lewis, no relation that I know of. He wrote a trilogy about the culture of poverty – very large tomes. Each was about a different population group, their levels of poverty & how they handled it. They were written in the 1960 era, also prophetic. I only read the last one concerning the Puerto Rican people. Still looking for the other two. Another note, the 1960s is when things really started going haywire in the USA. No judgements here, only info for your edification & enjoyment.

    Am/Pat, I agree with your assessment re: H. Potter. If one is a Christian (I am), then he will KNOW that the books/movies are just fiction/make believe. Many families no longer attend a church so their children grow up ignorant, for the most part, about God. No more religion classes to learn things like that. And no more prayers said in schools or (gasp) at some school sport events. Sad.

    One of the reasons why so few are at the Dem convention is because it is being held in a smaller venue than the size of the one where the Reps assembled. That may be why the volume is so LOUD at the Dems place. Maybe they want to give the impression that there are really more people attending? I did not watch much of their convention, but understand because of having to change from the stadium (for fear of possible lightning storms) and moving into the smaller auditorium for the last night, they couldn’t have the outdoor fireworks that they had planned and there was no way and no time to come up with the large number of balloons that are usually released at the ending. No doves flying overhead?

    Nadine, there are still a lot of people who will vote for the reelection of B.O. 1) Those who work for the gov’t—they want to keep their jobs! 2) The blacks will still vote in large nbrs for him (about 90% or so, according to a black gentleman) 3) Those who only follow the MSM which have supported him all these years. 4) Finally, those who ALWAYS vote Dem. I look for this to be a close election.

    Newsflash, strtlk! If you are referring to the Jerusalem/God vote—Obama is the one who requested it. He is the one who WANTED the vote. And it certainly didn’t sound 50-50 to me. The Nos seemed more than the yeses.

    I understand your point, the bible does say do not judge, God will judge. God says to discern instead. That means to see the wrong without judgement. There is hatred behind human judgement, and when god judges he sees the intent. Haven’t you ever been judged for doing something, and the people didn’t understand you had good intentions.

    Your making a good point, if a person is approach as a friend that you want to help, they will be more willing to listen. It has to be their will, not your will pushed on them. I have a sister who is a church regular, when people makes mistakes, she criticizes them with cruelty. She has a really bad superiority complex. She doesn’t care to help people, she just likes to point out their faults. I have tried to point this out to her, and she doesn’t want anything to do with me. I don’t believe all people who do bad things, are bad; because I believe they have good intentions, they are just doing the best the can with the choices they have.

    Israel has always said that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is the 3rd holiest site in Islam and the Holiest site in Judaism. The Muslims are offended by the Jews claiming this as their capital so this is a contentious issue. The Muslims don’t want us to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

    Thanks, I watched part 1 and 2 last night on Netflix. Loved it. One of the best points was how Dr. Jobe pointed out how academia doesn’t mention what they cannot explain. They usually do this with anything that does not fit thier narratives or theories. They call it an “anomaly”. Which means don’t speak of it. Also, when they continue to teach things which hve been proven false. Sometimes they make things up …”Piltdown Man” too prove their theories. Another perfect example…discovery of America…Columbus discovered America, well the Vikings were here first, and it has been proven. Besides, it actuallly was inhabited and discovered long before that.

    I am one of the conservative Democrats in the State of Florida. I registered as a Democrat 52 years ago because the Republican Party “fielded” few acceptable candidates in the primaries. Obviously, MUCH has changed in the 52 years. I no longer have any respect for the Democrat Party and their left-wing policies and “leaders.” One only has to look at the execrable liar Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to see what has happened to the Party. Shameful!

    It’s easy for all of us to fall into that trap. It’s why Jesus told us to examine ourselves before we approach a brother for correction. When we examine ourselves, we see our own failings and sin and the need for Christ’s mercy and forgiveness. We are then able to do as Jesus did with the adultress when he asked the people ready to stone her that he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone. Nobody threw that stone because they knew in their heart their own failings. Jesus was the only one there who was sinless and just enough to cast that stone of judgement but instead showed mercy and forgiveness at the same time declaring sinful what she had done.

    My husband had a thought (just a theory)…Obama took these 2 things out on purpose. Then he could come in to “save the day” by having a vote and saying he didn’t know it was taken out (OK) so as to have his Jewish voters and Christian voters see him as doing the “right thing”…(more votes). I saw it Live and it seemed 50/50 to me. They said they needed 2/3….if my husband is right…LOL it completely backfired on Mr President.

    No Glenn the where boing God.
    John 15: 18-26 and 16:1-4. If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belong to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words spoke to you: no servant is greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates the father as well. If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their law: they hated me without reason.
    When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the father, the spirit of truth who goes out from the father, he will testify about me. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
    All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the father or me. I have told you this, so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you. I did not tell you this at first because I was with you

    This is why you never see the Democrats quote from the founding fathers in their speeches. Sure, they may make a reference or two about the greatness of our country, or generalized quips, but when it comes to issues of the economy, centralized government and banking systems, abortion, religion, homosexuality etc..you never hear a democrat quote a founding father on these issues in support of their agendas in their speeches!
    The dems and supporters don’t want God because it’s not profitable. The media continue to increase ratings on shows that feed on lust, greed and violence. Christian morals are a threat to the media’s profits and therefore they encourage their law makers to keep God out, and in turn, the media throw millions to the dems campaigns. Our colleges leave God out because eventually, this younger generation will be our next senators and governors. Distract them with video games and parties and watered down versions of history and by all means don’t tell the truth about the Biblical beliefs of our founding fathers. The next generation will be totally opened to embracing every socialistic ideology imposed upon them. If the media can weaken the morality of the nation as a whole, then it’s easier to pass laws that those of us with a moral backbone would oppose.
    It’s no wonder the Disney owned ABC launched a new TV show called “666 Park Avenue”; the devil is in the details for sure!

    The Democrat leadership was so hopeful they could slip this back in, but they have diversified too much and included too many people who have no desire for God in their lives. True Democrats would chill if they knew the true agenda of the radical leaders.

    Bonnie, where do you think “helping others, being a good citizen, charity and morality” come from, dear? What makes me laugh is where people who don’t “believe in God” think that these virtues come from in the first place. What makes me cry is ignorant people. It’s not in “being afraid of punishment or looking for God’s reward” that most of us as Christians are what we are. It’s simply that we have an awareness of the Truth. And you’re right, you don’t have to be God-fearing to desire to do good. But where do you think a desire to do good comes from?

    Obama is still winning in the battleground states. Of course, I don’t know which polls to believe or not. Zogby is usually the most accurate pollster. And even he is showing a dead heat. If I were in the US now, (I live in Israel), I would have one foot out the door ready to hightail it to Canada if Obama wins. Or stay put and join the movement for secession in West Texas.

    Bonnie, I’m sorry that someone who wears a cross but does not practice
    a Christian lifestyle misleads those who do not know Christ. They offer a poor witness of being a
    Christian in doing so. Christianity is a
    spiritual transformation as opposed to a superficial statement; in order to BE
    a Christian, you have to accept Christ into your life. And by asking Him into your heart, He
    actually lives within you; you actually begin to FEEL differently and even
    THINK differently than before this transformation. People who wear the jewelry as they live in
    opposition to Christian values and morals?
    It is a mystery to me as well, one that would have to be taken up with
    them. Speaking of “ignorant statements”,
    I’m also sorry that you think God is a fairy tale; you obviously need Him real
    bad to feel that way.

    Shana, most democrats seem to think that the rich should give their wealth to the poor. And they think they are the poor. but in reality, they’re richer than any other society on the planet. As far as what Jesus would do if he were our president, I will merely quote him. “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. But teach a man to fish, and he eats for his entire life.” Problem is, most democrats don’t want to fish. They just want the man who knows how to fish, to keep giving them his fish.
