On Thursday, the New York Post reported that one Democrat finally called for defeating the radical terror group ISIS — and got booed by delegates.

According to the Post:

“These murderers must be stopped,” declared former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta. Cue the deafening chorus of boos, plus chants of “No more war!” from convention delegates.

Mind you, Panetta’s speech was offering yet another broadside against Donald Trump’s inexperience. “This is no time to gamble with our future. America faces flash points and threats from around the globe,” the ex-SecDef warned.

“Lies, lies, lies,” the delegates replied.

The Post said it was “a minority” of those present, but added that it was a “loud” one.  Even when convention managers tried dousing the lights over the jeering delegates, the Post added, the simply flashed their cell phone lights while continuing to drown out Panetta.

Here’s video, courtesy of the New York Post:

“Which helps explain why no speaker brought up the terrorist threat — or groups like Boko Haram and ISIS — on the first two nights,” the Post editorial board said.  “This is the Democratic base that Hillary Clinton must deal with in the fall campaign. And with which she’ll have to contend on a daily basis if she makes it to the White House.”

It’s also the same Democratic Party that had no U.S. flags on the first day — the same day in which it violated federal law, proudly displayed Palestinian and Soviet flags, burned U.S. and Israeli flags and nominated the most evil person ever to run for the highest office in the land.

Now they’re basically cheering ISIS.

Can we question their patriotism now?
