More on AOC's push to eliminate the "racist" Electoral College

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the gift that keeps on giving to Republican fundraisers and the Babylon Bee, is getting some backlash for posting a clueless video on social media.  It showed some desert landscape she was driving past while snarking about how there aren’t many voters there, and citing the empty expanse of land as a justification for eliminating the Electoral College (which she has previously denounced as a “scam” based on “racial injustice.”)

As many critics were quick to point out, the fact that some states have more open space than New York City does not mean the voters there should be disenfranchised, nor does the fact that some land areas have no people on them mean that there are no voters in the entire state.  You could probably even find a few vacant lots in Brooklyn, which at least now have vacant representation in Congress. 

All her video really proved is that you can find big empty spaces in all sorts of places, even between some people’s ears.

On that subject, hat’s off to Jim M. for providing our Comment of the Day:

“Did AOC really want to dissolve the Electoral College, or just make it Tuition-Free? :-)”

    The comment by Jim M. is hilarious! AND it highlights the absolute cluelessness of the socialist, brainless AOC. Well done Jim M., well done.

    AOC’s comments abt the Electoral College being racist against voters of color is historically inaccurate. There were very few people of color living in US when the Electoral College was enacted and even fewer voters of color. Dead white, Christian old men have slowed down the power grab of leftist like her and she is infuriated by them. Thank you Founding Fathers! And thank you Gov. Huckabee and your family for standing up to people like AOC.

    Used to think the Electorial College was outdated till understood it balanced small and large towns, cities; rural vs. big cities; small and large populated states. Otherwise 4 or 5 cities could determine congress, senate, Presidency. Not good for America or Citizens. Keep the Electorial College, voter I.D. Required nationwide issued to only USA Citizens who are Not felons, use bipartisan police to guard and transfer ballot boxes, used antihack software to protect electronic votes. Unless GOD tells you otherwise personally vote Republican/ independent Not socialist, communist, globalist, anarchy, atheistic, Antifetal, newborn; anti elders, power mad, corrupt demoncrats.
