‘Pompous twit’ AOC shrieks at Fox News in ignorant rant on Electoral College

On Friday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the recently-elected Democrat Socialist once dubbed a “pompous little twit” for her economy-destroying Green New Deal, went nuts on Fox News in a tweet storm that revealed her complete and utter ignorance regarding the Electoral College.

I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college,” she said on Twitter. “So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power.”

“Big mad?”  This, from an elected member of Congress…

She wasn’t finished demonstrating her stupidity.

“2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS.

a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it

b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections”

Translation: AOC thinks she knows better than the Founders who wrote the Constitution.

There’s more of this nonsense:

3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural.

But very importantly…

“Lastly” wasn’t really the end of her ignorant rant, however:

4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do Reservations get an electoral vote? Does Puerto Rico and US territories get them? No. They don’t.

“Electoral affirmative action?”  What the heck is that?  Is she actually saying certain people’s votes should count more than others?

She finally wrapped up her public demonstration of civic ignorance with a call for a national popular vote:

5) The Electoral College isn’t about fairness at all; it’s about empowering some voters over others.

Every vote should be = in America, no matter who you are or where you come from. The right thing to do is establish a Popular Vote. & GOP will do everything they can to fight it.

Given that the Electoral College is something established in the Constitution, the GOP and everyone else who reveres our founding document should fight a national popular vote.

Apparently, AOC missed the discussion of this in her history class.  Assuming, of course, that she actually took a history class.

Exactly.  But then again, AOC hasn’t exactly shown us that she understands this little thing called “civics.”





Dan Bongino shredded AOC:


Obviously not.

All we can say is, thank God AOC wasn’t around when the Constitution was written…
