SHE’S BACK: AOC Returns to Twitter with Anti-Electoral College Tirade, Video of a Penguin

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez returned to social media after a brief hiatus over the weekend; posting an anti-Electoral College tirade and a video of herself interacting with a penguin.

“I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. 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. 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. 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,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

Midwest lawmakers slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez last week after she called the Electoral College a racist “scam,” saying their voices would be completely drowned-out by coastal voters without the centuries’ old institution.

“Eliminating the current system in favor of electing the president via the national popular vote would shift power to more heavily populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s home of New York. Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, now heavily sought-after swing states, and smaller ones like Iowa would have less of an impact should this happen,” reports Fox News.

“Actually @AOC, eliminating the Electoral College would silence our voices here in Iowa and in many other states across the country. This is just more evidence of how out of touch the Democrats have become,” posted Sen. Joni Ernst on social media.

“The great sage, AOC, apparently didn’t take Civics so she wants to get rid of the Electoral College. The college we need to close is the one who gave her a degree! She won’t watch this, but hope you will. Electoral College is good for Dems and GOP,” added former Gov. Mike Huckabee.
