Obummer's Stained Glass Backdrop Nixed Last Minute at DNC

Oh brother....  I was doing so well over the past few days - trying to keep my posts away from the maniacal political fray surrounding that awful spectacle in North Carolina known as the DNC Convention.  But when I read a post over at Now The End Begins: So What Happened To Obama’s Stained Glass Backdrop At The 2012 DNC? I just couldn't resist sharing it with Talk Wisdom readers.


 I thought that the Greek columns in 2008 were bad enough...but stained glass for the Obummessiah???


A radical change in plans
The 2012 DNC Convention was all set. They had re-written their platform language to remove all references to God, and more importantly, all references to Jerusalem as being the (rightful) capital of Israel. And just like in 2008, they were all set to “remind” their faithful worshippers that Barack Hussein Obama was their messiah.

Everything was all set for Obama to receive worship…
…but a funny thing happened on the way to the Church of the DNC

The DNC was as confident as could be in their platform, until September 4 came along like a bolt out of the blue and effectively decimated their plans.

That was the day that the Romney and Company revealed to the world that not only did the DNC platform scrub all references to God that were in the 2008 language, but they also removed any and all references to Jerusalem being recognized by the Dems as the “eternal, indivisible capital of Israel.

A hew and cry went up across the height and breadth of social media land depicting the Democrats as “godless” and “anti-semitic”, and the criticism stuck. It stuck to such a degree that radical and speedy changes were demanded by Obama in secret, back-room meetings late in to the night.

An illegal vote forced on the delegates

The first thing to go was anything and everything putting Obama on a pedestal. His speech was re-written and pared down in an attempt to give him the “common man” touch. Most of the flowery and rhetorical language stripped and scrubbed away.

The next thing to go was the massive, stained glass backdrop that had seemed like such a good idea just a day earlier. And the last thing to occur was an illegal vote in direct conflict with establish convention rules of order. The vote was necessary to somehow jam the removed references to God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital back in.
If you watched the three times that the vote occurred, the "nays" (to NOT insert God and Jerusalem as Israel's capital back in) were certainly louder than the "yays."  If people had any doubts that the DNC elites and their goonie followers are a godless bunch - I think that the spectacle of anti-God boos and anti-Israel jeers have erased that fantasy!


I like how the article ended:

So as you see, when the blogosphere exposed the seamy inner-workings of the 2012 DNC, massive re-writing and re-scripting took place, and the convention that was presented bore little to no resemblance to the grandiose spectacle of Obama “praise and worship” that they had planned. And for that, we thank you, our loyal readers, for helping to expose just a little bit of the present darkness that has fallen on our nation since January 21, 2008.

And if you’re interested, I just happen to know where you can pick up a never-used, 2012 stained glass backdrop for free. It’s in a dumpster in Charlotte, NC. Forward! (lol)…
Hat Tip: Now The End Begins

The DNC canceled a 'stained-glass window' effect. The RNC canceled its attempt to invite the ghost of Ronald Reagan: kinda like the witch of Endor calling Samuel back from the dead, at Saul's command.

I tried to mention that some days ago, but someone refused to publish my post. Since there was no anti-God and no offensive language in it, I wondered why. Have you talked with the Webmaster?

Anyway, it could be that both parties decided the biblical imagery was going too far; the last time I checked, we weren't trying to elect a Pastor-in-Chief. Congregations rarely get to vote on who will lead them.

Celebrating the life of a former great Republican President like Ronald Reagan (and they did celebrate his life at the convention) is much more sensible than trying to promote Barack Hussein Obama - the worst pResident in American history as some sort of stained glass faked apparition of a man-made "messiah."

P.S. The links in your comment aren't working.

Sorry about that; I'm not well-versed in HTML. Pasting the links, however, will take there anyone who wishes to know.

Of course the RNC would want to celebrate the life and accomplishments of our former 'acting President'. One can't blame them for that, especially in the light of the two Republican ones who followed him. As I said in an earlier post, the 'Pubs would would really like to forget Bush 43, and want the rest of the nation to forget him too, even though he was President at this time only four years ago.

But that still doesn't change the point: both sides chose to scale back on the religious imagery, for reasons of their own. As for what the DNC delegates did later, removing mention of Gee-Oh-Dee was a bad move, but Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem, should still remain the capital of Israel. Let those who live there settle that question, not us.

You pasted a live link, it just doesn't go anywhere.

Bet you were proud of the DNC's other mistake - showing photos of Russian warships while "honoring" our military?

And, whether you like it or not, Jerusalem will always be the capital of Israel. So there.
