VIDEO: Chaos at DNC as Chair Overrules Delegates to Put God, Jerusalem Back in Platform
Kyle Becker | On 05, Sep 2012
A stunned Democratic National Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa held a vote not once, not twice, but three times to insert “God” and define “Jerusalem” as the capital of Israel back into the Democratic Party platform. As was predicted on IJ Review yesterday, the Democrat Party would likely reinsert God back into the platform. Who knew it would come with the DNC Chair clearly violating party rules by passing a measure without a clear 2/3 voice vote?
The embarrassment began yesterday when it was exposed that Democrats removed God and Jerusalem from the party platform, although spokesmen pointed out that it made repeated nebulous references to “faith.” But the voice vote shows that the heart of the party has no qualm with removing these references at all, an unsightly demonstration that Christians and Jews will have to grapple with as they weigh their votes this November.
