Bill O'Reilly: Chaos breaking out at the Democratic convention

By Bill O'Reilly

As you may know the Democratic platform omitted the word "God" and did not state that the city of Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. That has caused much fear and loathing. And earlier today under immense pressure the Democratic leadership decided to reverse itself and attempted to get on the right side of God and Jerusalem.

The convention chair is Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who almost had to beg the delegates to stop the madness and bow to God.

MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA (D-LA), CHAIRMAN, DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION: All those delegates in favor say aye.

PEOPLE: Aye.

VILLARAIGOSA: All those delegates opposed say no.

PEOPLE: No.

VILLARAIGOSA: In the opinion of it, let me do that again. All of those delegates in favor say aye.

PEOPLE: Aye.

VILLARAIGOSA: All those delegates opposed say no.

PEOPLE: No.

VILLARAIGOSA: I... I guess...

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You've got to rule and then you've got to let them do what they're going to do.

VILLARAIGOSA: I'll do that one more time. All those delegates in favor say aye.

PEOPLE: Aye.

VILLARAIGOSA: All those delegates opposed say no.

PEOPLE: No.

VILLARAIGOSA: 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.

O'REILLY: So it's obvious some Democrats still do not want any reference to God or Jerusalem. And so question the party has become extremely secular dominated by uber liberals.

Now the performance today, the importance of it is that it shows America that the Democratic Party is not unified, there are moderate Democrats and there are far-left loons. And the loons have a lot of power.

I mean think about it. Sandra Fluke wants us to pay for her birth control and not only that. She now wants us to pay for transgendered medical treatment. That means if Harry wants to become Sally, Fluke wants us to pay for it and she is a featured speaker at the Democratic convention, not someone mumbling on a corner.

President Obama should be embarrassed. That was embarrassing what you just saw. But I don't think he is. I think it's just business as usual. It goes back to his Chicago days with our pal Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers. Well, I don't think the President is a loon. He certainly doesn't mind crazy folks around him.

On the plus side for the Democrats, Michelle Obama's speech was a good one. And Bill Clinton will tee it up later this evening. The party is not dead but it is confused. It's hard to see how Independent voters are going to be swayed by what's going on in Charlotte.

And that's "The Memo."
