To remedy these two omissions, a motion was made on the floor of the convention to amend the party plan. A two-thirds vote for the affirmative was required to amend the plan to include God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The vote was held not once, not twice, but three times until the chair ruled that, in his opinion, the “ayes” had it. But that’s not even the half of it. Upon watching the video of the vote, it is clear that the “ayes” did not have a two-thirds majority, and more than likely, didn’t even have 50 percent. The “nays” were clearly louder.
Yes, America, this is the party that did not wish to include any reference to God in its party's plan nor did it wish to recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Not only did the delegation vote against it, they booed and hissed when the motion was accepted. Out of touch doesn’t even begin to explain this one.
Don’t worry. The plot gets thicker. This was the convention where the head of National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws proudly proclaimed that having free abortions on demand is the high point of the American dream.
This was also the same convention where a law-student best known for demanding the government pay for her birth control — as if it’s the government’s responsibility to pay for her “fun” — is celebrated as some sort of American hero.
Even more ridiculous, this was the convention where San Antonio mayor, Julian Castro, was able to mock free markets and call them “magical” to the tune of cheers ringing throughout the convention hall.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is not the Democratic Party most Americans are accustomed to. This is a party taking extreme positions on certain issues and calls it “patriotism.” They resort to telling lies and stoop down to name-calling just to try and get votes and call it “tolerance.”
Before this convention, I thought the Democratic Party was out of touch with reality. After this convention, though, I’m beginning to wonder how the party was ever in touch with reality to begin with.
