Here is the video
God Almighty -- What a Disaster!

of a substantial number of Democrats booing
the reinsertion of "God" into the Democratic platform, along with the reinstatement of language calling for Jerusalem to be the capitol of Israel.
Antonio Villaraigosa simply declared by fiat -- and political necessity -- that 2/3 of the delegates supported the changes (invoking "Chicago rules," as it were). Listen for yourself . . . the video (and the delegates shouting "no!" and booing the decision) speaks for itself. There is no way that 2/3 of the delegates supported these amendments.
What a public relations debacle for the Democrats. First, they are so tone-deaf, so removed from the heart of this country that they remove the provisions in the first place. Then, enough of them realize it's a PR nightmare, and they try to rectify the situation -- but their efforts to do so only highlight, in a dramatic and telling way, the depth of the animosity on the part of many (though by no means all) Democrats to even a cursory mention of God and pro-Israel language in their party's governing document.
If the GOP had committed an error of this proportion, the MSM would be collectively collapsing on a metaphorical fainting couch before declaring the election effectively over.
This video deserves a great deal of play, and I hope it will receive it. How sad to see a once-great American political party booing even the mention of God and the kind of pro-Israeli foreign policy that has been part of a bipartisan consensus for a long, long time.
