DNC Leadership Rams Through God and Jerusalem Despite Losing the Vote (Video)

After Governor Ted Strickland made the motion to change the Democratic National Committee platform to include both God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, the head of the DNC, called for a voice vote, which required a two-thirds majority to pass.

As you can see from the video, a surprised, confused and irritated Villaraigosa did not get the clear majority he expected and wanted the first time around, and so called for another voice vote. Again not getting his clear majority, he is advised by someone to his side that tells him, “You’ve got to rule, and then you’ve got let them do what they’re gonna do.”

Villaraigosa then called for a third vote, in which it again does not sound like he had a majority. Despite that, he concludes by saying that in “opinion of the chair two-thirds have voted in the affirmative,” to which he was loudly booed.

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    Villaraigosa is term limited and will be leaving office at the end of 2013.

  2. Eric Ayala says:

    even on live TV.

  3. This is an incredible demonstration of "Democracy" that the Democrats supposedly stand for…..and a wake-up call to those who still harbor the illusion that the Democrat party is mostly pro-Israel or pro-religion.

  4. Charles Kuttner says:

    Sadly the case.

  5. Yisroel Wise says:

    This is a most memorable moment in U.S. political history!

  6. Bubba Son says:

    The Democrats used to be progressive. Now they are morally lost, and likely there was a debate on this prior to the DNC convention.

    Used to be a Democrat – I apologize for this.

  7. Stuart Paley says:

    the Demas are DELUSINAL they beleive that if we tell the empororer his new clothes are beautiful then he must be wearing clothes just like his actions speak louder than words about his distaste for Israel.

  8. Ethan Perks says:

    Yet many didn't see it or learn about it. The Dem shills in the MSM didn't cover it or spun it.

  9. Ethan Perks says:

    It is reported that BHO new about these omissions before hand and said nothing. He changed when he saw the outcry. Even a lefty like Alan Dershowitz is outraged by this behavour.

  10. Ethan Perks says:

    Yes Stuart, the problem is the MSM keeps telling him and us how beautiful thos clothes are.

  11. Ethan Perks says:

    Reliable sources?? say that BHO new about the omissions and signed off on them. He only changed his mind after the outcry.

  12. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    barack "I am the only real g-d" obama" wrote the original platform under his continued illusion that no one would ever have the audacity to question. He really thinks that as the son of allah, he can do as he wishes, execute whoever he wishes (it's called NDAA), and go home basking in his belief that he is thought of as "all knowing, all seeing, all ass-holing!" All reality aside, the platform shows clearly that the goal of the chairman is the eradication of the Jewish people.

  13. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Interesting tha obama compliant media, whether pravda at nbc, abc, and cnn, or the Episcopal Antisemitic NY Times have relegated the uproar to the obituary and only quote the kapo whore debbie who alleges there "was no dissent".

  14. Muriel Coudurier-Curveur says:

    I don't know if you realize, but both the reference to G-d and Jerusalem as indivisible Capital of Israel were restored to the Democrat platform, in accordance with the majority, no matter what Mr/ Villaraigosa wished. This proves, if it were needed, that indeed the majority of Democrats -just like the majority of Republicans- are pro-Israel and makes you guys look a bit silly for saying the contrary.

  15. Muriel Coudurier-Curveur says:

    The only reason for the boos was that the "Muslim Democrats" invaded the convention this year. Don't delude yourself though, both parties are mostly pro-Israel, but both parties are equally pragmatic when it comes to privilege the petroleum producing (Arab) countries once they have the White House. Otherwise, presidents from both parties wouldn't have kept postponing the duly voted American law which already recognizes Jerusalem as our capital.

  16. The Obama administation is the prime example of unrighteousness! They defile the word of God (Hashem) which is Jesus and they tried to throw Jesus and Israel out of the Democratic National Convention by calling them "God and Jerusalem"! It all boils down to satans hatred for Zionist.and Zionism. We must "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem "Psalm122:6 everyday!
