Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drops fake news bomb on Fox News
“Well, I think the one thing that we — that isn’t being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country,”

The Lefts "SPECIAL LITTLE BARTENDER" puts "Foot-n-Mouth" …….. AGAIN ! jrSmiley_99_smiley_image.jpg


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her very first appearance on Fox News on Bret Baier’s show — and immediately dropped a fake news bomb about voter suppression as the reason Sen. Bernie Sanders didn’t do as well against former Vice President Joe Biden as predicted, as hoped.

You mean like the kind that probably came in 2008 when the New Black Panther Party members, decked in paramilitary garb, hung outside a polling place near Philadelphia — and the then-Eric Holder Justice Department stonewalled for months on investigating? Kind of like that?

No. This suppression in the Democratic presidential primary to which Ocasio-Cortez referred was of a different kind, it seems.

“Well, I think the one thing that we — that isn’t being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country,” she said, in reference to the long lines of voters at Super Tuesday polls, Mediaite reported. “Right there, in Ann Arbor, where we had that rally, those kids were waiting three hours in line to vote in Michigan. And so when we talk about who’s turning out and who’s not turning out, we absolutely —”

Baier cut in: “So just to be clear, you’re saying that you think voters didn’t get to vote that wanted to vote in Michigan?”

Ocasio-Cortez’s response: “Absolutely. You know, obviously there’s also more that we need to do in terms of turning out youth voters. It’s — we need to make sure that we’re inspiring young people to turn out, but when you do turn out, you should not be waiting three, four, seven hours in order to vote. And that causes people to leave.”

Most people would see long voting lines as a positive tell of Americans’ interest in the political process.

What’s more, when she was called out for the ridiculous view, she took to Twitter — her safe space, the one that offers her a chance to “speak” without having to deal questions — to deny that was her view.

“I do not attribute the [Sanders] loss on voter suppression,” she wrote. “[Joe] Biden bested the night, fair & square. However ‘anywhere’ w/ a multi-hour wait to vote — whether in GA, TX, MI, or anywhere else — is a problem. Voter suppression primarily targets Black voters, & young ppl can be impacted too.”

Sorry, but long lines at the voting polls is not a sign of voter suppression.

It’s actually quite the opposite.

According to her....long lines to actually "Vote", is suppressive (Only to the "I-want-it-now" folks). jrSmiley_84_smiley_image.gif

She's such a "Dink", and folks actually think this way. jrSmiley_103_smiley_image.jpg

Cortez is correct.  Only the 'under the rock people' would deny voter suppression.

Fake news bomb?  Really?  On FOX?  Holy Crackers.

There was no need for me to discuss off-topic issues from 2014 and 2018. They are irrelevant to the seeded topic.

Re: the video you posted in 3.1.4 -- "Governor Romney"? Again, irrelevant and off- topic.

I applaud you for trying, though.

About what? This?

“Well, I think the one thing that we — that isn’t being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country,” 

or this?

I do not attribute the [Sanders] loss on voter suppression,” she wrote.

How does one spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y?

Speaking of saying stupid fucking things, Trump is expected to declare an emergency today, this will free up FEMA dollars to use for this “emergency”. 

What do you think the over/under is that the retarded TDS suffers who whine that he isn’t doing enough to fight Covid-19, will scream like the demented little children that he stole money from FEMA leaving us unprepared?  Anybody want to place a bet?

Hey loki .. nothing will ever be enough .. the sky will always be falling for some and it will be Trump's [i.e. any president in office] fault .. one side always things the other side doesn't do enough.  Gets old does it not?

I hope you are well, and hiding under the bed of course, at least this time it’s not from the Russians, LOL

I’ve asked this question several times but never got a an answer, We have heard the talking heads bleating endlessly about the administrations failure on testing kits, my question is, other than statistical tracking what is the advantage? There is no cure, or treatment, that is significantly different than the flu or a cold. And if you aren’t a complete asshole you would stay away from others when you were sick, especially the old and elderly.

Hahahaha!  Awww but loki Russia is over producing oil causing a domino effect, the Saudi's had to join in on - they are still out to get 'US'

This morning on NBC morning news  .. it was revealed that doctors do not have to report to the CDC .. sooooo if true [have not been able to verify] it means that the whole 'testing kit failure' is more hype!    we shall see..

I am immune compromised, so am being alert to my surroundings and laying low for the most part .. Montana does not have a legitimate case in the state, but Bullock has already declared a state of emergency and elder housing is shutting down visitation as a precaution - outside of washing ones hands … that is all anyone can do .. be responsible for their own behavior while considering others safety...

Stay healthy
