I originally saw this on Drudge, but it has been popping up in other places. It is amazing.
The original DNC video was trying to analogize government to club membership. But what is extremely disconcerting is that the rank-n-file Democrats at the convention accept – no embrace – the concept that the government “owns” them. It is clear in this video montage.
I was especially horrified to see African-Americans embracing this idea. Blacks of all people should collectively reject the idea of being owned by another person or agency.
The majority of blacks in this country are church-goers and are good godly people. So when the Democratic leadership pulls God out of the platform we should expect to hear a loud outcry. But largely there was silence except from the right and pundants who warned of impending doom.
Fearing the pundants were correct is the only reason the leadership changed the platform. Surely another amateurish miscalculation from DWS, Pelosi, Reid, and Dear Leader.
I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when they decided to remove God and Jerusalem from the platform. You can almost hear the condescending voices argue that Blacks and Jews will vote for us regardless. Afterall they must believe, “We own them.”
Apparently, there may be more truth to that than I could have ever imagined.
