On Jerusalem, Jews around the convention were in total denial. After the DNC omitted Jerusalem as the capital of Israel from their platform – along with condemnations of Hamas, 1949 borders, and the so-called right of return – the Democrats tried to pretend that nothing was wrong with the platform. Robert Gibbs ignored the question completely when I asked him, insisting against all evidence that Obama was the most pro-Israel president ever. Then, when the DNC realized that its platform risked its political future, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa tried to switch it – and endured three failed voice votes before steamrolling the platform change.
And still Jews at the convention refused to acknowledge the problem. When I asked one fellow, wearing a yarmulke, about which party was pro-Israel, he stared at me blankly for a solid five seconds. Finally, he said, “Same-sex marriage is a Jewish value.” Willful blindness.
It is willful blindness that will doom the United States if anything does. Blindness to consequences. Blindness to imminent bankruptcy; blindness to moral evil; blindness to anti-American actions. See, such realities ruin people’s day.
I recently had this conversation with Brian Whitman, my liberal co-host along with Heidi Harris on KRLA 870 The Answer. He accused me of wanting President Obama to fail. “No,” I answered. “I want reality to succeed. And the reality is that he is doomed to fail.” Brian didn’t like that answer – he still thinks Obama’s economic record is a good one.
But reality is the only true solution to America’s ills. Willful blindness is a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, with half the population buying into Obamaism, our vision is growing daily dimmer.
