Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already out of the good graces of the American people.
She – and the rest of her “Squad” – regularly attacks Israel, America, and conservatives.
But now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest attack on America will leave you fuming.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest target is the Electoral College.
Liberals never complained about the Electoral College when the fabled “blue wall” existed.
These were states that added up to 242 Electoral College votes that Democrats won in every election from 1992 to 2012.
That put a Democrat candidate just 28 Electoral College votes shy of winning the presidency.
But ever since Donald Trump cracked the “blue wall” in 2016 by winning Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, Democrats turned toward wanting to abolish the Electoral College.
Recently, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a video to her social media explaining that the Electoral College needed to go because it was racist.
The Daily Wire reports:
Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities.
“The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.”
She also pointed to the often-made argument in favor of the electoral college which contends that with a popular vote system, states with urban population centers would have too much power over the direction of the country.
“You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families in suburbs [and] cities MUST have their vote suppressed in order to give rural votes a ‘fair shake,'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Could you imagine if we had this kind of democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group? If we weighted, for example, Black [and] Indigenous voters more because of fairness?
Democrats now want a national popular vote to determine the presidency because the Left dominates the massive urban population centers like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boston.
The Left knows that all they would have to do to win every presidential election under a popular vote scenario is run up the score in the top 5 or 10 most populated cities and the Republicans would have no chance at victory.
A national popular vote would completely disenfranchise rural and suburban voters which is why the Founding Fathers rejected the idea in favor of the Electoral College.
