In First Fox News Appearance, AOC Blames Sanders’ Michigan Loss on Voter Suppression

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) says voter suppression is responsible for Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ loss in the Michigan Democratic presidential primary.  

During her first appearance on Fox News, host of “Special Report” Bret Baier asked Ocasio-Cortez how she can say “the progressive position is prevailing nationwide” while former Vice President Joe Biden has taken the lead in the delegate count.

“I think one thing that isn’t being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country. Right there in Ann Arbor, where we had that rally, those kids were waiting three hours in line to vote in Michigan.”

Watch her comments below: 

Baier interjected to ask if she was suggesting that voters who wanted to vote were unable to. 

“Absolutely,” she said, adding, “Obviously there’s also more that we need to do in terms of turning out youth voters.”

“But, when you do turn out, you should not be waiting three, four, seven hours to vote,” she added. 

Several reports indicated that younger voters, a voting bloc that overwhelming supporters Sanders, were waiting in lines to vote even as polls were closing on Tuesday night. 

Sanders voiced outrage at reports that voters were waiting for hours to vote in a press release on Tuesday, appearing to call the long lines voter a form of suppression. 

“At a time when Democrats correctly attack Republicans for voter suppression, it is disappointing to see people standing in long lines for hours today waiting to vote in Michigan and around the country,” he said in the release.

He added, “People should not have to miss a day of work to exercise their right to vote. This is an outrage. Election officials must address these problems immediately, and if necessary, keep polling places open longer.”

Sanders lost Michigan, a state he won in 2016, to Biden by roughly 260,000 votes.

    Just found up-to-date (2020) information on voter fraud in a few States: CO, CA, NC, VA and PA. After a lawsuit by Judicial Watch, the Court ordered KY and OH to comply with the Federal NVRA – National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Data released from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) reveals there are 378 Counties Nationwide which have more than a 100% registration to voter ratio. San Diego tops the list at 117%. This illegal ratio means there are about 2.5 million more people registered than adults eligible to vote. I found it amusing that Phyllis Softa's Allegheny County in PA topped PA's list over Bucks, Chester and Delaware Counties. [BTW: The EAC is a US Government Agency for the information of those Confused Socialist puppets who try their level best to dispute FACTUAL information.]

    Once again: HOW are the DemocRATs expected to win any much needed POWER and CONTROL to implement their Socialist/Fascist agenda unless they DO cheat?

  2. AOC also added that not “patroning” Chinese restaurants is racist, which has a grain of truth. Just like some have stopped drinking Corona beer. I have an old Smith-Corona typewriter (remember those?) which I no longer use. Obviously that’s racist.

    Anyone who thinks the government has “special” people who should tell us how to run our lives or spend our money need only look at AOC and her squad as evidence that they are wrong. These half-wits got elected and that’s not special. (I won’t go into how we should be changing voter elibilty).

    1. Rep. Pressley; of Commie Quad Squad fame – is yelling that calling COVID-19 the “Chinese cornonavirus” is hurtful to the immigrants. Yet, I didn’t read anything in her blurb about the “O’Biden/Bama” (as the addled one called it) 2009/2010 H1N1 “SWINE flu” they ignored for six months hurting the feelings of the World’s population of pigs (the 4 legged kind); OR the “West Nile virus” pissing off the Egyptians. The D’RATS will make up all sorts of stupidity to keep the Nation divided.

      1. Marburg, the Spanish flu, Zika, Ebola, MERSA, St. Louis encephalits, Legionnaire’s Disease, etc. are ALL named for geographic or group points of origin. Let’s also not forget the “Blue” flu.

        No idiot protests from the Left to any of those, except now it’s just another method of attacking the admin. They are idiots protesting the arrangement of deck chairs while the Titanic is sinking.

        If nothing else, they are opportunists and inconsistent. Look at their reps who post here.

  3. According to Pew and CNN the Dim voters are AT LEAST 60% women. Darn those toxic male deplorables.

    AOC is obviously ignorant. Also about Dim history which includes a LONG tradition of voter-suppression, poll taxes, and the dead voting.

    fun fact: EIGHT states, all Dim-controlled, mysteriously had more voters than the actual # of voting age population. Biggest gap? CA. Interestingly they were the first state to allow “vote harvesting”. Look it up.

    1. That is old news. There are reportedly more than just 8 States who have more registered voters than eligible adults. Commiefornia is the worst of the bunch with an average registration rate of 101%; not including the Illegal Aliens who are registered to vote there (AND in VA and PA). Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Center attorneys are and have been suing the States for violating the NVRA Law which requires the removal of deceased voters; those who haven’t voted in two consecutive Federal elections and those who no longer live where they were registered. Of course, THAT is “voter suppression” according to those in the Jackass Party who need all the votes they can make up or dig up for their voter fraud for POWER agenda.

    1. The old Commie appears to have the younger crowd (under 50) sufficiently brainwashed while the older D’RAT geezers go for the demented kind (“Birds of a feather stick together”?). So, it only makes sense that Commissar Bernie Castro-Stalin needs to pull from quid pro quo Joe’s pile and add to his. Neither have a snowball’s chance of beating Trump in November.

      BTW: Saw another poll this morning: Trump – 68%. Biden – 29%. Neither – 1%. Shows Biden has a better chance of getting closer to beating Trump than the old Commie who has a slim 16% chance of beating Trump.

      Are those two the “cream of the crop” over there? LOL. What a joke this election cycle has become!
