It is a well-established fact that Democrats carelessly play the race card when they’re losing or when things aren’t going their way. The people of this country have witnessed this time and time again; how many times have left-wingers called President Trump, conservative policies, or even the basic notion of legal immigration (something which Democrats used to support in the 1990s) racist? It’s gotten to be quite old and repetitive, yet the left doesn’t seem to ever tire of it.
The latest construct to be branded as racist is the Electoral College. This charge comes from House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of all people. On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez posted on her Instagram story and absolutely slammed the Electoral College; if you let the congresswoman tell it, this particular construct supposedly cancels out votes from people of color and interferes with an “equal” election.
Ocasio-Cortez’s outrageous remarks about the Electoral College were documented by Fox News; quite frankly, it’s a shame that a United States congresswoman doesn’t know that America is a republic, NOT a democracy.
Dissecting AOC’s Take on the Electoral College
Ocasio-Cortez maintains that the Electoral College is a “scam” which has “got to go.” During her Instagram story, she furthermore expressed why she views the institution as racist. Ultimately, the congresswoman made the claim that having more white voters in a state than people of color voters drowns out votes from non-whites.
You truly cannot make this stuff up; Ocasio-Cortez’s statements on the matter read as follows:
“The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown. Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally.”
The REAL Reason Democrats Hate the Electoral College
Left-wing opposition to the Electoral College has absolutely nothing to do with voters in various states or creating more “equal” presidential elections. No, Democrats are upset because the findings of the Electoral College did not favor Hillary Clinton in 2016.
That’s what this ultimately boils down to; anyone who is honest with themselves and others cannot claim otherwise. Had Donald Trump won the popular vote, but lost the Electoral College, Democrats wouldn’t be rallying to do away with the Electoral College.
Leftists simply like to change the rules of the game when they’re losing. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats are now desperate and running scared because they know they will lose the 2020 presidential election to a second term of Donald Trump.
