Is it just me, or does this image make you a little squeamish too…?

Democrats Change Platform by Fiat

with one comment

Kinda makes you wonder who’s really pulling the strings…

Today, the DNC made a change to their party platform that, rather forcefully, returned to the platform, language that supported God and recognized that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.

But I really have a tough time believing that the Governor Ted Strickland, who was the chair of the committee that wrote the national platform, didn’t see this one until late last night when they drafted the amendment.

Now listen to the video and see if you think 2/3’s majority of the party voted to put “God” and “Jerusalem” back into the platform.  Now I know the audio on this is extremely subjective, but it would seem that this one was ramrodded.  I did read that one of the commenters of this clip ran the audio through Audacity and measured that the waveform of the “no” votes was clearly louder.  Anyway, what’s your opinion?

Vote One: It was pretty clear to me that it was “No”.

Vote Two: It wasn’t clear, but it sounded like the “no’s” still had it.

Did you hear what the woman behind Mr. Villaraigosa said.  She said, “You gotta rule, and then let them do what they’re gonna do”.   She urged him to basically make a decision and then move forward.

Vote Three: It was dead even.  So even if the “aye’s” had it, it wasn’t a 2/3’s majority.

So much for majority rule.  I guess the DNC is ruled by the same forces that drive the “Great Taste, Less Filling” crowd cheer, now.

The DNC – the Party of Racism (at least historically, right?)

with one comment

It’s interesting how the DNC calls itself the party that has led the civil rights fight for 200 years, but did we forget that, for nearly a century, the DNC has been very much pro-slavery and against

  • Supported slavery in 6 platforms from 1840-1860.
  • Opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution that successively wiped out slavery and gave both legal rights and voting rights to black Americans.
  • Supported segregation actively or by silence in 20 platforms from 1868-1948.
  • Opposed anti-lynching laws, specifically supported by the GOP in four platforms between 1912 and 1928.
  • Opposed the GOP-sponsored Civil Rights Acts of 1866, which focused on legal equality for blacks.
  • Opposed the GOP on giving voting rights to blacks in the District of Columbia in 1867. The legislation was passed over the Democrats’ objection..
  • Nominated an 1868 presidential ticket of New York Governor Horatio Seymour and ex-Missouri Congressman Francis Blair. The Democrats pledged they would declare the Civil Rights laws passed by the GOP “null and void” and would refuse to enforce them. They lost to Ulysses Grant.
  • Opposed the Enforcement Acts, three laws passed by the GOP between 1870 and 1871 targeting the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and making it a federal crime to block the right of blacks to vote, hold office, serve on juries and have equal protection of the laws with whites.
  • Opposed the GOP Civil Rights Act of 1875, which prohibited discrimination of blacks in public accommodations.
  • Used the Ku Klux Klan as what Columbia University historian Eric Foner calls “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there mention of the infamous 1924 Democratic Convention — the “Klanbake” as it is known to history because hundreds of the delegates were Klan members. The Klan-written platform mixed the traditional Democratic message of progressivism and racism in the Klan-written platform.
  • Repealed the Civil Rights laws enacted by GOP Congresses and presidents, already damaged by the Supreme Court. When Democrats gained control of both Congress and the White House in 1892, the Democrats’ President Grover Cleveland signed the repeal on February 8, 1894.

Does this not shock/surprise anyone?

Democrats Start Convention with Racist comments…and the Debt hitting $16T

leave a comment »

It’s not like we need yet another example of how two-faced that the Democrats have become lately.  We’ve had to listen to the uproar when Todd Akin made his “legitimate rape” comment last month and all the insane “war-on-women” nonsense.  We had to listen to a Yahoo news chief say that the “GOP was having a party while black people drown” (although he rightly got his butt canned for it). And we sat back and heard Chris Matthews imply that all people on welfare and food stamps are black, (for which Newt Gingrich slapped him back) and say that the very use of the word “Chicago” was racist.

Now we have James Burton, the chair-slime from the California Democrat party, and and make Paul Ryan out as a Nazi propagandist, like Joseph Goebbles.  Will there be any accountability on behalf of Burton or from any other lib-crat?  Not a snowball’s chance in Hades, because Democrats can pretty much get away with racist comments with impunity.

In other words, business as usual.  I guess it’s a fitting way to start the DNC progressive gushing, free-love, baby-killing, government-control party.

Have fun in Charlotte, you toads, with all of your chair-kicking labor bosses, college-students wanting government furnished prophylactics, cars, and education, anti-God race baiting, Native American-wannabes whose ancestors rounded up Cherokees for the Trail of Tears, anti-Life morons screaming about rights to kill babies, and whatever chain-carrying lib-tards you invite to the party.

A party that will be marked when the national debt rolls over $16 trillion – a debt that Obama said he would get serious about and cut the deficit in half.  But of course, we won’t be saying that during the convention, will we?

And make sure you all clean up after all the Occupy protesters leaving their junk behind.

Oh, and this just in…y’all need an ID just to get into the convention, how racist is that?
