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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
