Majority of Dems Boo, Vote Against Reinstatement of Jerusalem as Capital of Israel – VIDEO

By Debbie Schlussel

Watch this hilarious video of what took place less than an hour ago on the floor of the Democratic convention, as delegates loudly booed and voted against the reinstatement of language recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the Democratic Convention Chairman, er . . . “Chair” (even emptier than Clint Eastwood’s chair) has to ask delegates to vote not once, not twice, but THREE times to try to get a majority of them to vote to reinstate the language into the Democratic Party platform, after it was deliberately removed. And, yet, even on the third vote, despite his declaring otherwise, the majority of the delegates are loudly AGAINST reinstating the language. It is fun to watch the silly “Yalla Vote”-t-shirt wearing Arab and his property, er . . woman looking all upset. And they should be. Their party is clearly anti-Israel. But for election and PR purposes, Villaraigosa keeps lying about the delegates’ vote, which is clearly and loudly anti-Israel. Someone clearly has a hearing–or more like a lying–problem. This group is a festival of clowns. Reader “Worry01”: “Boss Tweed would have been proud.” Yup.

G-d also seemed to require a ramming to be included in the Democratic Party platform. That was an ugly scene, and if the Republicans were even semi-sharp they would use it in their ads. This would not be a cut and paste job, but an entirely accurate portrayal of where the mainstream of the Democratic Party is today.

    Unfortunately the GOP is the party of stupid so sadly expert at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory that as they showed in picking Mormon Romney, whose monstrous Romneycare was a model for 0bamacare, as a supposed “alternative” to his boy 0bama when anyone with a brain (those who don’t vote Dem or GOP) knew there was no difference in the candidates, just the speed at which they would take the US over the cliff! I write this 12/2013 and Sen. McConnell’s whining and making typical infantile threats about those rightly primarying him and promising how he’ll retaliate, should make any rational adult replace him with an adult, further proof if any were needed of how the GOP is regularly a reliably spineless ACCOMPLICE for Dems, not a regular, much less reliable opponent, even though there are exceptions, perhaps like WI Gov. Scott Walker. Only God can save us now!

The Democrat Convention is truly fodder for the Republican ad campaign. From their hatred of Israel to their hatred of America a smart campaign planner could easily glean enough good material for several ads that portray Obama and his Obamabots as they truly are.

Naddy Bumpko on September 5, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    I think this should also disabuse anyone about the Party’s stance on Christianity and Judaism. Even a boilerplate reference to G-d in the Democratic Party platform had to be forced through. It is now semi-offically a pagan or atheist party now. Wiccans of the World Unite!

    Worry01 on September 5, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Many of these people are teachers. And they have the nerve to call themselves professionals?

Little Al on September 5, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    I believe that the majority of delegates to this shameful event are “Teachers.” I refer to them as mind numbed union robots. Most “Teachers” today are interested in only two things….more monry and walking a picket line. Unfortunately for the picket line, these idiots have to be retrained after completing the first circle. You have to love the leftist mantra of, “Give teachers more money and they’ll be better teachers.” In other words, give some incompetent moron more money and they instantly become Einstein. Smaller classes is the next false flag. Everyone should go to college? How large are college classes….stadium seating for a hundred, two hundred? I rest my case. Smaller classes mean more incompetent drones “Teaching,” which really means more dues to the communist led teacher’s unions….and the money cycles to the democrat party. It’s just a wheel of money. I watched a teacher’s union convention last yea…..first topic brought up was abortion, followed with getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan, closing Guantanamo, disinvestment in Israel,….the usual commiecrap that has nothing to do with education. Teachers will overwhelmingly vote for obama……ask them why and you’ll get a blank stare. These mindless cretins would vote for Donald Duck if told to do so by the union. No wonder today’s kids can’t read or write a cohesive paragraph.

Any action against Israel will bring judgment to the U.S.

This is very frightening.

As Goes Israel, so Goes the U.S.

And it shows how easy it is for democracy to degenerate into mob rule, just like the rabble in Greece or Madison.

Little Al on September 5, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Exactly Debbie. Charles Krautheimer just now said the exact same thing that the majority of Democrats supported that language about Jerusalem as well as God removed from the platform.

Debbie Wasserman-Shitz is one dirty capo sow!

B: Charles Krauthammer supported kicking Jews out of their homes in Gaza and in the West Bank. And he supports a Palestinian State. He also says most Muslims are moderate and most of us who see the Islamic threat are fascists. I don’t need him to confirm anything for me and you shouldn’t either, including and especially our hearing. But thanks. DS

bob on September 5, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    How ’bout an alliteration? DWS is a “kackling kapo kow”.

    FrenchKiss on September 5, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    I bet Charles regrets saying that now.

    However, since the IDF couldn’t push the filthy arab vermin into the sea, and it was using a large amount of resources to protect the small number of Israelis in the Gaza strip, Sharon did the most prudent thing. Just leave. Sharon was more concerned about Hizballah in the north which required more military resources. Gaza has changed since then. Sharon could not forsee the infiltration by Iran in Gaza. Hindsight is always nice, but a decision had to be made where to focus militarily, and Gaza was not as big a threat as the Golan or the north.

    FrenchKiss on September 5, 2012 at 6:53 pm

      FK, it never ceases to amaze me how Israelis buy the kind of crap that you just offered here. The results from Gaza were totally predictable. Sharon made his decision based on the same set of self-interested personal and short-term political motives that all important political decisions are made in Israel, including his fear that he and family members would be prosecuted for corruption.

      As Rand has pointed out, a state with laws written so that they must be broken, making all citizens vulnerable to law enforcement, is a strategy of control.

      Also, stop calling the Muslims of eretz Israel vermin when you spend time making excuses for not slaughtering them. It’s a typical Israeli tough-guy pose.

      skzion on September 5, 2012 at 9:28 pm

        Oh I see, and staying in Gaza is not a tough-guy pose? Would you or someone in your family be willing to die for however many Israelis were living there (and it was quite small)? I bet not. It was a strategically untenable situation. Gaza had no strategic value to Israel. Removing the vermin or leaving was the only two choices. Sharon left.

        FrenchKiss on September 5, 2012 at 11:12 pm

          Gaza has no strategic value to Israel? Really? Why, cause the Egyptians are our best buddies? Even if we secured Sinai, The Strip would provide an nice, easier in fact, land route to Ashqelon, Ashdod port and power station, and not to mention Tel Aviv. FK, sometimes I agree with you but on this, chaver, you’re out to lunch.

          Italkit on September 6, 2012 at 12:10 am

          FK, in truth, I no longer pay any attention to Israel, but last time I did, there were all these projectiles hitting Green Line Israel from … Gaza. Hmm. Then there were all the arms smuggling operations, which I’m sure no longer happen.

          Of, course Israel has no need for added depth, it being the largest in the region already.

          But really, the Israeli idea of paying the jizya in land giveaways has always been quite brilliant. The Muzz would never be encouraged by such a sly approach.

          Also, Israel needs to fight its future wars on as many fronts as possible!

          skzion on September 6, 2012 at 11:53 am

      And where is Sharon now? On ice somewhere while his family waits a few more years for a brain transplant which of course will make him not Ariel Sharon any longer.

      Italkit on September 6, 2012 at 12:03 am

Obama can claim he intervened but he’s just looking to buy votes with these words, which of course mean nothing to him.

Furthermore, this is a perfect example of the Democrat Party, they hate Joooooos, and they hate G-d.

Worst part: These are the people that teach our children in public school.

How is Debbie Wasserman Schultz going to spin this?

FrenchKiss on September 5, 2012 at 6:33 pm

But statement that “Isral is USA’s best middle east ally” was still removed and not put back in.

Obama and his party are now deadmeat. Hurricane expected tomorrow night so the liars move speech to hockey rink from 75,000 football stadium.


bob on September 5, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Villaraigosa is an idiot-clown and a thug.

DS_ROCKS! on September 5, 2012 at 6:52 pm

These disgusting Donks are just being open about the vermin they are.

Even when I was not political I supported Israel and could not see them as the “bad” guys. If you don’t see Israel’s side you are NOT a good person. That is my guide.

I was never a Donk but I was Liberal. But they are so disgusting today I could never be in a million years.

Skunky on September 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Too late. The damage is done. G-d was watching.

Donald on September 5, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Disgusting – We are a house divided, insolent in the eyes of the L-rd our G-d. May he have mercy on us all for such a rotten display regarding His Eternal City and His Chosen People.

The upside of this is that they are imploding right in front of America and exposed for the fools they are – you didn’t see any of this crap at the RNC.

StillShakingMyHead on September 5, 2012 at 8:13 pm

He didn’t have the cajones to take it to roll call, where it would have been defeated, so he just deemed it passed by a whopping 2/3. Why go to all the trouble to tally up the votes when you have the power of deem? Such annoyoing details, ballots are, annoying details!

Natsue on September 5, 2012 at 8:44 pm

They should call this shindig a costume party. They pay lip service to hard work but don’t mean a word of it.

Who cares what their platform says? Even if it contained a 1,000-page tribute to the Constitution, meritocracy, property rights, hard work, Israel, etc, wouldn’t it make more sense to judge them by their deeds? It’s so obvious that it scarcely needs to be said – but the media is all wrapped up on their little position paper.

THESE PEOPLE DON’T EVEN SUPPORT THEIR OWN COUNTRY’S CONSTITUTION. Does anyone seriously think they will be hamstrung by a platform paper?

Statusmonkey on September 5, 2012 at 8:45 pm

It wasn’t just reinstating Jersusalem as the capital of Israel, but it’s also reinstating the word “god” back into their platform as well.

There are some Democrats and liberals who support the state of Israel and believe and trust in god, just as their are some Republicans and conservatives who don’t believe in god and don’t support the state of Israel, but favor a Palestinian state, speaking of Palestine, Jordan should be re-named Palestine. As DS explained on this blog many months ago, a good number of Jordanian folks have Palestinian blood in their DNA and of Palestinian lineage, etc.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on September 5, 2012 at 8:53 pm

I believe this action by the Democratic convention gives new meaning to the term “finding God”.

Gloria Stewart on September 5, 2012 at 8:53 pm

These things are a further reminder that this election will determine both the long term and short term future of the US. (As in a choice between survival or destruction)

RT on September 5, 2012 at 8:54 pm


    LOL – more like a choice between cyanide and hanging.

    Statusmonkey on September 5, 2012 at 11:49 pm

Is it just me or was Villaraigosa going to throw in the towel and call the motion defeated for a bit after the 2nd vote, around 2:31? Of course, empty suit that he is, he looks around for somebody to tell him the right answer. That woman says something like “you gotta rule, and they’ll do whatever they do,” at which point Villaraigosa realizes that’s the Democrat answer: ignore what people are saying and ram it through anyway.

Personally I love this video, and think it’s the most important of the campaign, more even than Eastwood tearing apart an empty chair. Let everybody see exactly what the delegates – the base supporters and rule-makers in this party stand for: denying G-d thrice and booing even a meaningless token mention of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. (After all, they’d proceed the same way, whether or not this language is in their platform. This amendment passing with enthusiastic approval wouldn’t make Barry the slightest bit anti-Israel. These Muslim hotheads can’t even stand putting up the false front.)

Seems Stalin was proved right once again. It doesn’t matter who votes but who counts the votes. If obama doesn’t lose by a landslide they will drag this thru the courts and al frankin will produce more ballots from the trunk of his car.

ender on September 5, 2012 at 11:34 pm

I’ve heard on TV and the radio all day that the majority of those boos were directed at God being put back in the platform. But I wouldn’t expect a clearly biased “journalist” like you to even suggest that that was a possibility. If anybody wants to read an unbiased article, I do not recommend going to

Bill Rosen on September 6, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Rosen, if that’s really your name, G-d CHOSE JERUSALEM as His seat on Earth. Reject it, you reject him and vice versa.

    Italkit on September 6, 2012 at 12:13 am

      Oh and Rosen, ALL journalism is biased, despite what you were taught about it being objective. That’s why I disagree with Debbie’s Dictum that we only read her and a few chosen others. It’s critical to read all sides and all slants to come away with the most accurate picture possible. And that includes her enemies list.

      Italkit on September 6, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Bill, the Jerusalem matter was discussed on the major networks. As for bias, if you failed to notice that you are not looking at CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, or Fox. Also, if you are a bit dense, this is an opinion site with journalistic content. Finally, no one has chained you to this site. the Daily Kos, Move On, Media Matters, or Stormfront are open to you. Have fun.

    Worry01 on September 6, 2012 at 7:58 am

Yeah look we can all argue back on forth on a couple of points, but fact is the mainstream Democratic Party is hijacked by the far Left and the far Left agenda – atheism and Jew-hatred. That’s what it means to leave God and Jerusalem out of the DNC platform. The cat is out of the bag.

Yet most American Jews will still vote Democratic Party and for Obama, no matter. There are none so blind as those who cannot see.

Larry in Tel Aviv on September 6, 2012 at 2:11 am

This was major act of desperation to have recorded the supposed 2/3 “vote” live and now the DNC will have to edit their copies to adjust the volume of the nays. The DNC, CPUSA, SDA, OWS, NBP, NAACP, NLPC, SEIU etc. are all anti US,
Israel, Semitic — many openly admit it but B. Hussein must wear a mask until the election votes are “counted” (hopefully not by Villain-grosso!). One can only dream that wimp Mutthead and his staff will learn to include vocabulary which includes the tertms, communists, islamic terrorists, subversives, etc. Not much hope there will be any opposition, I fear.

Otto Schaden on September 6, 2012 at 7:57 am

i don’t think any one should be surprised that the national socialist democratic workers party showed that they are commie traitors. they have been this way for 70yrs because they surported all the commie spies in the roosevelt&truman administration.all the commie news papers villified joe mc carthy for exposing these traitors and of course he was the traitor dems have shown them selves commies just like president bongo.i think it is time to heat up the tar and gather the feathers this crop of commiecrats needs to be shown the door and sent to cuba with a nice coat of tar and feathers,

Jack on September 6, 2012 at 11:35 am

So the Dems (again) have publicly shown themselves to be anti-God and anti-Israel, liars (no way even 1/2 of the delegates said “Yes” to the motion), and vote stealers. And don’t you love former Governor Strickland, who submitted the amendments and at the same time announced that he was an ordained Methodist minister. What did he do after this fraud occurred? This ordained minister went along with the fraud, lies and vote stealing. Some minister! Some Christian! Maybe he could become a regular guest speaker for the Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. or at Jeremiah Wright’s church.

Concerned Citizen on September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Tell me again why the vast majority of Jews are Dems?

Red Ryder on September 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I have no real problem with omitting the word “God” from the Democratic Party platform — for that matter, the word doesn’t appear in the Constitution. But I have a great problem, from a realist standpoint, with removing support for Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel, which clearly it is.

Symbolically, the removal is appeasement to the enemies of Israel, most of all, the Arabs. It is in U.S. interests to cultivate strong relations with Israel. The Democrats issued a slap in the face to a true ally.

Seek on September 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Even if you believed this story, which I don’t, it portrays President Obama’s staff as a bunch of inattentive dolts:

In fact, with Mayor Corey Booker and former Governor Ted Strickland involved in the platform drafting process, it is highly unlikely that this matter had not previously been brought to the attention of President Obama. He apparently did not think that the language on Jerusalem and G-d was of importance until the firestorm hit. Also, as the delegates made abundantly clear, the party assembled clearly did not want the approved platform modified. It took three voice votes followed by ignoring the plainly expressed will of the chamber to get G-d and Jerusalem back into the Democratic party platform.

David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett did not make President Obama look any better after that interview. Even if you bought what was being said, it make the President seem inattentive and weak at best.

Worry01 on September 6, 2012 at 3:21 pm


The following is a letter that I wrote (on the day it occurred) to the left-leaning local Gannett newspaper (which they surprisingly printed):

The Democratic platform had decided to omit the holiest of words from its platform. It also decided to eliminate the mentioning of the capital of Israel from its platform. These omissions were present in the 2008 Democratic platform. There was much uproar re these omissions. To salvage face, these
items were added to this year’s platform upon a recommendation from the President. The amendment was decided on a voice vote. Even though most of the delegates booed the addition, supposedly it amazingly passed by a majority voice
affirmation. The Democratic Party, once a great party under JFK, has slowly declined into a party of unions, socialists, and special interests.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers?
I’d really appreciate it.
