AOC Calls Electoral College A Racist “Scam!”


Democrats like to act like they care about the little guy – the everyday, earnest, hardworking American – but, the truth of the matter is they only care about getting votes to put them in a place of power.

Aside from all the pandering to illegal immigrants over legal American citizens, this is further evidenced by the far-left’s call to get rid of the Electoral College.

Doing so would effectively allow cities and voters in cities to decide each election and belittle the voice of the heartland (who, what do you know, tend to vote Republican!)

In another display of ignorance that is becoming Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hallmark, she posted a video mocking rural America online in a sarcastic attempt to vouch for the elimination of the Electoral College set up by our founding fathers to defend the voice of the everyday, rural American.

Here’s the classic-AOC style clip reposted from her Instagram onto Twitter:

AOC followed up this mocking video by calling the Electoral College a "scam" and racist (the Dems' go-to argument to replace logic),

"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 voters are counted equally."

Business Insider has more to say about AOC's hit at rural Americans and the Electoral College:

 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the Electoral College "a scam" that undermines the voices of voters of color in a series of Instagram Stories on Monday. 

 The New York Democrat shared a March  New York magazine story titled "Here's Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They're All Wrong" and pointed to data that African-American, Hispanic, and Asian-American voters are underrepresented by the Electoral College compared with white Americans. This is in part because people of color are less likely to live in rural states, which are afforded at least three Electoral College votes regardless of population size. 

 "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 voters are counted equally," she wrote. 

 She argued in another post that defenders of the Electoral College should advocate the inclusion of Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and other US territories "aka colonies" that do not have electoral votes. 

 "Isn't it strange how electoral college defenders under the guise of 'fair' representation never bring that same energy to demanding rights for citizens in DC or US territories?" she wrote. 

 Ocasio-Cortez also argued that the votes of Republicans and rural dwellers in blue states were being undermined by the system.                                                                                                                     

 The freshman lawmaker, who represents parts of the densely populated boroughs of the Bronx and Queens, posted her comments while apparently on a trip out West. 

 "We're coming to you live from the Electoral College," Ocasio-Cortez quipped over footage of what appeared to be the desert in an Instagram Story on Monday night. "Many votes here, as you can see. Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can't think of any other way, can you?" 

 This isn't the first time Ocasio-Cortez has pushed for eliminating the Electoral College. She made headlines last fall when she called to get rid of the system, describing it as a vestige of slavery.                                                                                                                     

 "It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery's power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,"  she tweeted in October

 In June, in response to the MSNBC host Chris Hayes' tweet that Queens had more residents than 16 states combined,  Ocasio-Cortez said, "Yet one more reason to abolish the electoral college," adding a winking emoji. 

Fox News also said:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took aim at the Electoral College, calling it a "scam" and suggesting it disenfranchises people of color.

In an Instagram story posted Monday, Ocasio-Cortez began by joking that she saw "many votes" while driving through the desert, which she sarcastically referred to as the "electoral college."

She then cited several excerpts from a New York Magazine article that refutes arguments in favor of the Electoral College, telling Republicans that the system "is, in fact, a scam."

"The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown," Ocasio-Cortez said. "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."
