The Democratic convention began today, and the formal cyber proceedings began with a video that… well, let’s just say it runs against the grain from everything we’ve seen and heard from the Left since Trump has been in office (and especially these last few weeks and months):

The Democratic National Convention began with a recitation of the Constitution's Preamble, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of the National Anthem. 1619 Project hardest hit.

Democrats must really be getting desperate. They opened the convention with the National Anthem and a prayer. That’s like ANTIFA putting a PBA sticker on their car. #DemocraticConvention #DemConvention

I find it a little ironic that the Dem convention opened pledge and now kids singing the national anthem. ?

Just a little ironic. Here’s the video tweeted out by the DNC:

So which does the DNC hope voters believe — that brief video or their lying eyes and ears these last few months and years.
The Ds are playing the National Anthem now. They were saved immense embarrassment because if the convention was in person, half the attendees would be kneeling.

Now they are praying at the #DemConvention LOL

It's touching to begin the Democrat convention with the National Anthem.
But do they all have to kneel?

Interesting to see the DNC Convention open with the National Anthem, however brief, without taking a knee. I'm sure that'll annoy some of their base.

Without a doubt.
At least Rob Reiner was impressed:
Watching the singing of our National Anthem gave me chills. So proud to see the real America. So proud to be a Democrat.

But that leaves one awkward question:
But did you kneel? https://t.co/2oqpyCKBjY

For some reason that didn’t seem to be an issue for Dems tonight.
