Ocasio-Cortez suggests Electoral College is racist


THE DAILY BRIEFING WITH DANA PERINO, ONE OF OUR FAVORITE GUESTS. THANKS FOR COMING ON. VERY QUICK QUESTION AS SOMEONE WHO HAS FOLLOWED AMERICAN POLITICS FOR MANY YEARS. IS THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE RACIST?>>Dana: IT’S SUCH A DISSERVICE TO THE INSTITUTION, . IT’S BAD FOR CIVICS EDUCATION. THINK OF HOW MANY PEOPLE FOLLOW HER ON INSTAGRAM AND THINK, OH, YEAH. TO THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS RACIST. BECAUSE SHE DRIVES THROUGH A RULE AREA OF THE UNITED STATES, SHE’S DRIVING THROUGH FLYOVER COUNTRY, SHE THINK’S IT’S OKAY TO SAY THAT THESE PEOPLE DON’T MATTER. THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE HERE DON’T MATTER. WHILE, WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE RULE PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. THERE ARE URBAN CENTERS. THERE ALL OF THESE THINGS. NOBODY SAID IT WAS RACIST UNTIL RECENTLY. THEY DIDN’T SAY IT ONE BARACK OBAMA WON THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TWICE. THE OTHER THING IS, WHEN SHE TALKS ABOUT THIS, NOT WANTING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, IT’S JUST THE NEXT STEP TO SAYING THAT THEY DON’T WANT THE UNITED STATES SENATE EITHER. THEY DON’T WANT THINGS RIGHT. THEY JUST WANT THE CITIES, OF WHICH YOU JUST HIGHLIGHTED IN YOUR A BLOCK, TO BE IN CHARGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO PERSUADE AND USE ARGUMENTATION TO SAY WHY THEIR POLICY PRESCRIPTIONS WOULD BE BETTER. I AM ON THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TRADITIONALIST AND EVANGELIST FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO DEBATE ANYBODY ABOUT THIS. I FEEL THAT STRONGLY THAT THE FOUNDERS KNEW IT THEY WERE DOING WHEN THEY SET IT UP. MINORITY RULE IS, I’M SORRY, MAJORITY RULE IS NOT WHAT WE ARE SET UP TO HAVE. WE ARE A REPUBLIC. WE HAD THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, AND IN FACT, COLORADO PASSED THIS LAW, SAYING, OKAY. WE DON’T EVEN CARE WHAT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE SAYS. WE ARE JUST GOING TO DO WHATEVER THE POPULAR VOTE IS. GUESS WHAT, TODAY, U.S. APPEALS COURT IN DENVER SAID, NOT SO FAST. THAT DOESN’T WORK IN OUR COUNTRY. I ALSO THINK IT’S FUTILE WHAT SHE’S DOING. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE IN OUR LIFETIME. THEY WANT YOU JUST SAID THAT YOU WOULD BE HAPPY TO DEBATE ANYONE ON THE QUESTION OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. SHE DOESN’T, AND PEOPLE LIKE HER DON’T. THEY SEEK TO TAKE THE QUESTION OFF OF THE DEBATE TABLE BY CALLING IT RACIST, IN OTHER WORDS MORAL. IN OTHER WORDS, YOUR POSITION ISN’T EVEN WORTH HEARING BECAUSE YOU ARE A BAD PERSON, BECAUSE YOU ARE RACIST, BECAUSE YOU SUPPORT A RACIST INSTITUTION. WHAT DOES THAT DUE TO OUR PUBLIC DISCOURSE?>>Dana: IT’S GROWING, BECAUSE I THINK EIGHT OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020 ALL SUPPORT GETTING RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. BUT THAT’S A LOT A LOT. IMAGINE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE HEARING THAT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS THE VEIN OF THEIR EXISTENCE? SHE SAID THAT THIS WOULD SILENCE VOTERS AND VOICES IN IOWA. THAT CERTAINLY IS NOT THE WAY TO WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE IF YOU THINK YOU WANT TO WIN. THIS IS A SYSTEM THAT THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE. I THINK IT’S A GOOD SYSTEM, BUT I DO THINK THAT IT IS A DISSERVICE TO SAY IT SHOULD BE ABOLISHED WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGING THAT IT ACTUALLY HAS A PURPOSE.>>Tucker: RIGHT. EXACTLY. TO DERIDE IT, DISMISS IT AS IMMORAL.

  1. How this stupid B!tch can breath on her own is amazing to me. If you get rid of the Electorial College the big cities will call the shots and small town America can go to hell. Most large cities are more liberal than rural areas. Side note, rural America, keep your kids out of the Big Cities. Live in the burbs if you have to, and commute. But never, ever live in a large city.

  2. AOC is Stupid !!! Plain and Simple. O AOC is A Pole Dancer who can't do that Right so She Went into Politics. SAD 😉

  3. There's an entire generation the having no clue that we know exactly what the founding fathers were thinking when they wrote the Constitution buried there are personal notes of every member in the Library of Congress parried it used to be taught in schools. The 1st thing a progressives did and turn on lies century who is remove those being notes being taught in schools. That's their way of making sure we don't know what are they met to parried the next step was completely removing government classes and civic classes out of schools. Less than 4% of States even have a book government or constitution classes required anymore. Best way to strip your rights to never let you know you had him in the 1st place.

  4. The electoral college gives each area of the country a voice. The founders knew that our country was a collection of different sentiments and different agendas. A farmer has different concerns then a stockbroker in nyc. And without the electoral college, rural American would have no voice …

  5. Everything AOC disagrees with is racist. If she had an argument with he own mother she'd be racist. Nancy Pelosi is racist. The list goes on. The only person who's racist is AOC herself. She's obsessed with race.

  6. It's her response to everything.
    Its intellectually weak.
    I'm telling you. If given the chance, this congress freshman would be a dictator.

  7. You can literally feel all the white females running for President wishing they were a minority, probably for the first time in their lives.

  8. This idiot and all the others like her believe ANYTHING that doesn’t go their way is “racist.” Have the considered the overwhelming possibility of their own stupidity? The sooner that AOL and her type are removed from office, the better.

  9. The truth of the matter is that blue states like California or New York have the most say as to who wins the Presidential election every 4 years because these state have the most votes in the electoral college.

  10. I think what is even more deeper is the eradication of western civilization, by ignoring the classical method of education because it is too white.

    But it has gone further than that
    Now, the very ideas associated with the trivium, logic, dialectic, rhetoric, explanation of logical and illogical fallacies are now being challenged as the white explanation of learning….

    Pay attention…the very idea of logic is being challenged. Yes it is a thing.

  11. Electoral college is racist.
    Why did we just have a black president then? Or is it that she thinks all white people are racist?

  12. Racist = Common Sense. Being called a Racist by a fanatic socialist Democrat is a badge of honor these days.

  13. I honestly don’t know who would give this person enough votes to put her in the position she’s in. Where do these people live and where do they get their idiology from??

  14. Are there any other words AOC has in her vocabulary? Cow farts and racist is pretty much the apex of this morons meager intelligence. It just goes to show that any brain dead puppet can serve in Congress.

  15. AOC is a total jackass. 538 electors to the electoral college. 100 US senators who representatives the state issues and 438 who representatives population of each congressional district Which has a population of about 710,000 people That the beauty of our Nation Each congressional representative includes everyone From the new born baby to the person 110 years old Unlike a pure democratic which elected people only care about who can vote in places which has a more dense population We have a representative form of government Trump won more congressional districts Like Obama did in 2008 and 2012
    AOC is so dumb I really believe she does not know what form of government she was elected to

  16. A complete selfish idiot.
    And the Colorado governor is a liar. Changed his name to hide his sexual harassment charges and illegal Cayman island accounts to avoid paying taxes. They both should be in jail on embezzlement and grand theft!

  17. I'm on both sides of the fence with this one. I understand why people want to remove it, because when someone does get the majority vote, they normally win. Yet… the electoral college allow candidates to persuade more people in smaller/rural chance, because if we did just go by the popular vote. Candidates would only go to cities with the biggest population and not the small rural areas

  18. Get that ill- informed into School where she can learn why there is an Electoral College & how it cane about! But before this BOOT her out of office!!

  19. When these stupid people make their slanderous comments, they should be made to go to court and prove what they're saying is true and if they cannot prove that someone is racist then the person being accused should be able to sue them for slander

  20. She's the mascot of the Democratic party. If it looks like a jackass, and thinks like a jackass, well you know the rest.

  21. They don't want state's rights only a leftist totalitarian centralized government. The electoral college is no more racist than a gun or car or any other inanimate object. Wanting to let in immigrants unrestricted just because they are black and brown to the detriment of American citizens now that's racist.

  22. Racist everything is racist. Heaven forbid if anything racist really happens, cause the term is getting used so much no one will care.

  23. Youre misleading your audience again. Dems don't want the Senate? Please lady, you can only fool ignorant people with this story. Dang, quit making crap up about Dems and then arguing with it. It makes you look desperate.

  24. The Electoral College is far from racist. It’s actually the exact opposite, giving a voice to the states and not just a few population centers ideology.

  25. It's cute how the only card that the extremists right has to prove there not racist … Is a president Lincoln from tha 18th century 😂 hn ya Republicans r Masters of disguise

  26. Ocasio-Cortez does not have the intelligence to be in politics. She is blind to the reality of what's really going on either deliberately or worse willingly. Regardless of what it is, She should not be in any position that is paid for by the Peoples Tax Dollars. To many dimwitted people have got their foot in the door of politics and it is destroying our countries, not only the USA but every nation. Canada is another Prime Example of having an unqualified person "Justin Trudeau" somehow got the position of Prime Minister of Canada. The consequences have been nothing but destructive. Fortunately, we can vote him out in October this year. The Left-Liberal Democrat agenda in the western nations is the most destructive attack on the people and the countries we have seen to date. If we don't raise the bar we will lose everything we have worked hard to save and establish for many generations and fought world wars to protect. It's a fight for our lives and too many people don't have the foggiest idea we are at war with the left nut jobs and Elite self-proclaimed rulers throughout the western league of nations. It's long past due we stopped the insanity and got back to commonsense and basics to be the wholesome countries we set out to be.

  27. If we could push everyone who lives within 20 miles of the ocean unto the Sea, we would have a MUCH better country.

  28. Check out AoC from Puerto Rico trying to 'modify' the U.S. Constitution. Does she know better than our founding fathers?

  29. Sarcasm from your enemy offends you.

    Attacking your opponent causes them to defend themself.

    Why is our first reaction always a sarcastic insult?

  30. IF she could count, she would know that without our current system, a handful of states would decide the race every single time, and most of America wouldn't even need to bother voting.
    To the uninformed, it sounds like a good idea to have the popular vote make the choice. If you live in the few states with the most population, you might even like the fact that you matter more than the rest of us. If you don't, you'd pass on voting at all, knowing that California, New York and a few other states have it wrapped up already. Last time I checked people of all colors live in those states, so race has nothing to do with it. I can see the losing states refusing to pay taxes into the federal system making the case that they have no representation.

  31. I think AOC is extremely intelligent with higher morals than any host of Fox Political Entertainment! Let us remember these people don't claim to be a news agency.

  32. Boy am I ever going to miss AOC after she gets voted out of office next year. She's the gift that keeps on giving.

  33. If we put every extreme racist and white supremist in a high school basketball gym, the stadium wouldn’t even be full. How is everything that isn’t beneficial to liberals and their agendas are considered racist?

  34. Sometimes I wonder, Ocasio Cortez creates a video of herself driving through the countryside as if she can not find the Electoral College. Then hops online and spouts the first thing that comes to mind as if she is lost in space? This woman needs to seek some help. First the cows are going to end the world now this??

  35. The electoral college cannot be racist. It is a thing. The people using that thing can be racist but not the thing itself.

    In today's USA, the electoral college helps the states with small populations like Vermont, Road Island, Montana and Alaska have a voice in choosing the president. This is especially important to Alaska where most of it's economy falls under federal jurisdiction like fishing, mining, and logging.

    Without the electoral college, candidates for president would pay less attention to the concerns of these small states (if any) and just focus on states with higher populations like California, New York, and Texas.

  36. So entertaining to see one RACIST ask another racist if something is racist… Right-wing idiots at it AGAIN! Lmao… Tucker dumb dumb asking what if the Electoral College is racist when in fact he is a racist it's just completely mind-blowing.
