FLASHBACK: Villaraigosa’s Disastrous Time As DNC Convention Chair

One of the last time’s former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appeared on stage at a Democratic National Convention, the results were unfortunate. In his role as Democratic Convention chairman, Villaraigosa tried to smoothly re-insert mentions of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital into the DNC platform.

What followed was anything but smooth, as delegates attempted to thwart the effort with multiple votes and a wave of boos.

Given that Israeli flags were burned on the streets of Philadelphia this week, its clear that many Democrat’s anti-Israel prejudices are still very strong.
