Villaraigosa was visibly stunned. “I uh…I guess…” At that point a women walked up to Villaraigosa. “You got to rule, and then let them do what they’re going do,” she advised the Chairman. “I’ll do that one more time,” said Villaraigosa. “All of those delegates in favor, say ‘aye,’” he said for the third time. A bit louder still. “All those delegates opposed say ‘no’.” The “nays” matched the volume of the “ayes”–for the third time.
Villaraigosa then did what Democrats do when reality doesn’t coincide with their worldview. “In the opinion of the Chair, two thirds have voted in the affirmative, the motion is adopted, and the platform has been amended as shown on the screen. Thank you very much, thank you,” said Villaraigosa–to a loud chorus of boos.
Unlike some in the media, I will not go so far as to say that Democrats booed God and Jerusalem. Perhaps some did, but one suspects the response by the crowd was more about Villaraigosa’s transparent effort to alter a reality so obvious it could not be ignored.
Ironically, Democrats, and their standard-bearer, Barack Obama, are more than willing to ignore several realities that don’t accrue to their worldview, like a nation going bankrupt, 42 months of unemployment “officially” over 8 percent, an incoherent foreign policy that coddles our enemies and cold-shoulders our friends, and the ongoing virulent attacks on anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with their worldview.
Wednesday’s spectacle was a pathetic combination of Orwellian-ism and Groundhog’s Day rolled into one. It is the true face of a Democratic Party whose commitment to the will of the people and the sanctity of the vote–in this case their own people and their own vote–is a complete fraud. Watch the tape. And as you watch it, try to imagine the difference between what occurred here, and the same kind of “vote” in any totalitarian society that has ever existed. Moreover, watch it even as you remember that this is a party and a president currently constrained by the need to get re-elected.
