Hot Take: AOC Accuses Democrats Of Voter Suppression When Her Candidate Loses

Poor loser

From the link

New York is as bad as the Deep South when it comes to voter disenfranchisement — and Democrats share the blame, according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In the wake of Tiffany Cabán’s concession in the Queens district attorney Democratic primary race, the freshman congresswoman is laying blame for her fellow progressive’s loss at the feet of state lawmakers and Gov. Cuomo.

“Voter disenfranchisement in the state of New York is a given,” she told the Daily News in an interview at her Queens district office on Wednesday. “Our voting laws are horrifying in how they suppress the vote and how they disenfranchise voters on a regular basis.”

Cabán conceded on Tuesday, officially cementing Melinda Katz’s 60-vote win after six weeks of contentious recounts and court battles. Ocasio-Cortez said there is plenty blame to go around, but called out Cuomo for not signing an election reform bill that Cabán supporters believe could have put the Manhattan public defender over the top.

“New York State historically has been just as bad as any deep southern state when it comes to voter disenfranchisement, whether it’s poll locations changes, whether it’s having your ballot tossed out over technicalities even though you’re a registered Democrat, which also happened in this race,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “But it was legal disenfranchisement so that disenfranchisement was within the bounds of the law.”

Modern Socialists love the notion of Direct Democracy. But, they cannot abide losing fair and square. She even admits the counts were lawful, but, since her preferred candidate lost, obviously, things are Very Bad.

    The only way Demos will fight vote fraud is when they’re the victims.

  2. Sabre22 says:

    AOC and or the candidate will pull a stacey abrams saying she really won and the other candidate is illegitimate just watch

  3. Doom and Gloom says:

    AOC will probably not even be able to run in 2020 since she is now being investigated for violations which go beyond campaign finance laws which could see her becoming a felon.

    As the civil war approaches we need o get ready for the all out putsch. The left will overload social media by cross-talking white supremacy and white nationalism 24/7. They will send out their lawyers to prepare challenges at the local and state leve for every losing candidate. They will stuff ballot boxes, harvest votes, manufacture votes from the dead and for one person in ten locations, they will exclude military votes. They will not only allow but encourage non citizen immigrants and even illegals to vote and look the other way. They will use every trick, every loophole and every accounting lie to achieve victory.

    Remember it is the radical left who threatens “Whatever it takes”. And they fukin’ meant it! Then, when Trump is reelected it will be the 21st century version of Fort Sumpter.

    And during the build up to election the same phony polls that predicted a Hillary win, the same media Fake News outlets that predicted Hillary and the same Hollywood stars and talking heads that predicted Hillary will join to form an impenetrable noise to block out any opposition..

    We either win this one or we lose the Republic!

    Remember, if Elwood and those who think like he does had their way they would treat the Trumps like their predecessors treated the Romanov’s and we would be filling the gulags. If they didn’t execute us first.

      With men like Kye it’s always projection.

      trump is using the far-right, alt-right, KKK, neo-Nazis, and white nationalists. In fact, our republic is already in trouble and it’s because of trump, his far-right supporters and their authoritarian tendencies.

      Wasn’t it the right shouting “Lock Her Up!” & “Jews Won’t Replace Us!” & “Send Her Back!”? Who said “What ever it takes”?

      Anyway, the far-rightists are feeling their oats and ready to go in for the kill.

      Let me guarantee that when the Dems take the WH, House and Senate, there will be no revenge, even with all the crap the GOP (trump+McConnell) has shat. The right can’t make the same guarantee.

      You proposed shooting immigrants who didn’t leave right away. The far-right thrives on hate and cruelty.

    No, it’s just a question of reading certain people.

    Most Lefties read like a three panel comic strip.

    I think it was Malcolm X who said, “Whatever it takes”.

    And it’s the Lefties that have been doing all the killing.

    First, it’s going to be a generation before the Demos take anything.

    Second, the Demos are all about revenge. Remember what ValJar said? Fatty Nadless is still trying to impeach Trump to get even for ’16.

    So, as always, you lie.

    This tells you actually how splintered the left is right now. They are blaming their own party for voter fraud and defeating their own far left demos. In fact AOC and many like her are the results of Cenk from the Young Turks having such a melt down that he makes Michael Moore look like a Republican.

    I read one analysis that the democrats are frantic to take back power to protect the deep state which they have spent decades putting into place. They are frantic to protect the legacy of Obama and so the MSM is pushing the narrative with fake polling that Biden is ahead of everyone else by like 40 points.

    Now I’m probably pretty sure Biden is leading but not by 40 points over warren and Harris with Bernie only polling 16 percent. The CORPORATE OWNED and WALL STREET BACKED MEDIA including nearly every POLLING OUTLET is frantic to get a moderate to run against Trump knowing only about 1 in 3 would support a far left whacko who wants to abolish ICE and then get rid of guns and give everyone FREE EVERYTHING, including destroying multiple CORPORATE SECTORS in the process to save a few molecules of CO2.

    Think about that for a minute. What benefit does it get for society to have FREE EVERYTHING. Corporations will drop like flies under a true communist leftist agenda. Thus the frantic attempt by the Moderate wing to discredit the leftist wing.

    But again I would caution the GOP that while this bodes well for trump nationally it does not bode well for the GOP locally if they aren’t seen as doing something about guns and healthcare.
