Uh oh. Once the Dems were busted, no doubt in part thanks to International Embarrassment, Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin’s unhinged, defensive display last night, they decided on another do-over, this time on re-inserting those two pesky words that have so many pairs of liberal undies in a bundle, “God” and “Jerusalem” back into their platform. Not all delegates are pleased, however. From Yahoo News:
Embarrassed by Republicans, Democrats amended their convention platform Wednesday to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates had objected. He called for a vote three times before ruling. …
But the decision to amend the platform did not rest well with some delegates.
Noor Ul-Hasan, a Muslim delegate from Salt Lake City, Utah, said she felt it went against the principle of the separation of church and state.
“There are people who don’t believe in God and you have to respect that as well,” Ul-Hasan said. She also questioned whether the convention had enough of a quorum to even amend the platform. “There was no discussion. We didn’t even see it coming. We were blindsided by it.”
Angela Urrea, a delegate from Roy, Utah, said she felt it was sprung on the convention without any discussion.
“The majority spoke last night,” Urrae said, noting the platform was approved Tuesday. “We shouldn’t be declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
What phony hypocrites these people are! How can anyone support them? Stupidity? Lack of information? Reason taking a backseat to emotion?
What say you?
