WATCH: AOC Criticizes Middle America
Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez openly derided the Electoral College in an Instagram video Monday.
The footage is merely the latest attempt by coastal elites to paint "flyover country" as insignificant and backward.
Tell that to Hillary Clinton. Oh, and those electoral college votes? They didn't come out of thin air. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan have more than a few million voters apiece. (SEE ALSO: AOC a Virtual Ghost to Constituents)
Breitbart further reports:
The freshman lawmaker posted a sarcastic video to social media, offering commentary as she drove by empty fields in an effort to delegitimize the importance of the Electoral College and, as a consequence, the Americans it gives a voice to.
"Alright everyone it's been a minute. We're coming to you live from the Electoral College," she said, with the video panning to empty plainlands.
"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?" she sarcastically asked. (RELATED: AOC Reveals True Thoughts on America, Reagan)
Ocasio-Cortez followed up, writing, "To all the Republicans getting big mad bc the electoral college is, in fact, a scam:" followed by an article from the Intelligencer titled "Here's Every Defense of the Electoral College – and Why They're All Wrong." She took shots at the Founding Fathers and argued that the U.S. "still" denies millions of Americans the right to vote, citing Puerto Ricans and "many folks released from prisons."
Ocasio-Cortez previous claimed the Electoral College has helped perpetuate racial injustices.
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. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) October 6, 2018
