Left-leaning political magazine Politico referred to the United States Electoral College as a racist institution this week, saying the outdated system poses a direct threat to the national security of the United States because of social media and “fake news.”
The article, titled “The Electoral College Is a National Security Threat” claims the founding fathers created the institution to appeal to the nation’s “pro-slavery sentiments,” adding the system “often gives white rural voters more voting power than minorities living in cities.”
The author slams the College, saying the nation’s founding fathers could have never predicted the devastating effects of Facebook, twitter, “fake news,” and other outside influences that could disrupt the system.
“Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness,” states the article.
“But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined it would be,” it adds.
Desperate democrats and liberal activists are desperately searching for any excuse to de-legitimize and derail President Trump and his agenda.
The left -particularly Clinton herself-has routinely blamed the democrat’s 2016 loss on Russia, the FBI, the media, and now the electoral college.
