The Democratic Party’s symbolic dismissal of God with the removal and forced return of His name to its platform by party officials amid boos from delegates could be the turning point in the 2012 presidential campaign said talk radio-host Michael Savage.
“This is a big moment,” Savage told his listeners after describing a remarkable divine encounter he experienced last night that has underscored for him the gravity of the moment.
“America is disgusted with this party of atheists and America haters,” he said.
At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte today, the Associated Press noted Democratic officials were embarrassed by the reaction to the party’s removal from its platform yesterday of God’s name and of a declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.
When officials tried to reinsert the language today through amendments, Chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, the mayor of Los Angeles, had to call for a voice vote three times because the outcome was unclear. The motion required an affirmation of two-thirds to pass, but it sounded like the yeas and nays were equal. When he ruled that the amendments had been approved by acclamation, he was met with a chorus of boos from delegates.
