The most powerful moment of either convention

 

OK, folks.

This will be the most memorable, important moment of either 2016 convention. It’s the testimony from the parents of a fallen American soldier, Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004. My hope is that Donald Trump saw it, that he saw every single second of it and was shamed by it.

Hey, I can dream, right?

Unfortunately, if you were watching Fox News, you missed most of the above. For whatever reason — incompetence, bad news judgment or maybe something less forgivable — they chose not to show it to their viewers. You should see it.

More propaganda. He was legal right? His intent was not terrorism right? So what was the point of this? Still we don't hear the truth over the 4 fallen in Benghazi. When are people going to wake up and get a clue? This display was pitiful and killery should be ashamed. Bring in the families of the Benghazi victims and give them the right to speak.

No, I don't. No need to point fingers. Instead, mourn your loss but be proud of your son for his service and his decision to serve and protect.

Personally, I'm trying to figure out how in the world they found a military veterans parent at the DNC.

Yeah the traitor Donald saw it and commented to Maureen Dowd that wife was forced to remain quiet as Trump's  way to disparage a gold star Muslim mother.


Last night on MSNBC the mother talked about her son. She was speechless at the convention because of the large picture of  her son on the screen behind her.


So what have Trump's children done for America??????


The father's speech, Michael Bloomberg's speech, Michelle's and parts of Obama and  Biden's is all Dems need to win in November.

June Knight Shassere Mr. Kahn and his wife were on Lawrence O'Donnell last night with the second half of what he wanted to say. Very powerful.

Mary McCowen, your comment here is at the top of a whole list of comments from Hillary haters. Please look over these comments and see where these people are coming from. Fox News fans? Paid trump supporters? Their comments are extreme.

June Knight Shassere I glanced at them and realize that. Very sad about the evil in the world. I have made a promise to myself not to enter into the vitriol.

Mary McCowen I understand your point of view. Those people are the ones who are going to elect trump. There are more of them. We are the ones who are going to have to live with it.

Mary McCowen so do I. So you must figure out a way to stop it. You do not need to enter the world of vitriol.

It was not his speech was based on a lie. Trump never said that people like him can't come to this country. The temporary hold on Muslims immigration is for the people that are trying to come from the areas that are influence by ISIS. We need to verify that they are not the terrorists. It's so simple our President first duty is to protect the citizens of this beautiful country. FBI and homeland security departments are on record saying that they need more time to determine if there are no terrorists that are trying to get in to USA. Only a stupid liberal would say that this is racist.

Not a true way of honoring ones' son. By the way, I guarded the same checkpoint in Iraq as his son did, but not at the same time.

Funny I have seen very little about the DNC screwing Bernie on msnbc or cnn. Even less about what the FBI director said about Hillary, just that no charges were brought. What i do see is the AJC running fast and loose with facts, and taking political sides. What they, and all of the press should do is just report the news. I do not need your skewed opinion.

These people lost a son for the American cause, yet Trump really thinks he is entitled to America. As far as I'm concerned, the Khan family are true Americans and Trump has no clue to what that means.

This mans son died 14 years ago from a car bombing from a radical Muslim in the Middle East.. Trump wants to stop the flow of Muslims until they are vetted.. this guy is a Hillary shill.. using his son for her purposes.. this man should be agreeing with Trump .. which makes him as Phony as Hillary is .. to me he is spitting on his sons death

You should listen carefully to what this man is saying.

"Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership.

"He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.

"Donald Trump, you're asking Americans to trust you with their future. Let me ask you: have you even read the United States Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy.

"In this document, look for the words 'liberty' and 'equal protection of law.'

"Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending United States of America. You'll see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities.

"You have sacrificed nothing, and no one.

"We cannot solve our problems by building walls, sowing division. We are stronger together."

@DS Cons would not understand any of that - Cruz was wrong. They have no conscience.

There's nothing wrong with you folks being a republican but if you think Donald Trump should be the president of America than you are an embarrassment to our, country our, state your family and your friends.

Do you not think a vote for Hillary would be all that plus an embarrassment to the truth & your intelligence?  She is an un-convicted felon that is a disgrace to us all!

@jljghj Hillary isn't a felon.  That's just a Fox "news" wet dream.  She has more knowledge and experience in domestic and foreign affairs than ALL the people who tried to be President this year!  She is good for the country, good for women and children and families.  Even for men...at least those men who have half a brain.  NOW that she's broken the glass ceiling, MORE women will run for office and finally the country will be balanced!

uhhhhmmmm. No.... leaves me wonder why I keep following the AJC left wing tabloid for the Democrats. Number of positive articles for DNC far out weighs the RNC.....

WhyorWhyNot

That's because the Democrats do far more positive things than the Republicans.

I used to live in Georgia & I know what you mean about the AJC. I now live near Houston Texas & the Houston Chonicle paper is just as bad. What's with these big southern city papers??
