MSNBC has a quick explanation....


Vivid article......
Defeated Democrats Have New Excuse: Electoral College Is Racist

Throughout the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton claimed she would accept the results. Well, that was probably because she thought she’d win so felt that saying that would make her seem a better person. The election day came along, she lost, big time, and guess what, neither she nor her supporters accepted those results. They pushed for the recount in a few states that only showed Donald Trump was undercounted. Then, they tried to blame the loss on Russia and cyber attacks. FBI, CIA, were also blamed. But wait, that’s not all; they also blamed the Electoral College and branded them, racists.

I really wonder if the "Left" members of the board actually shake their heads at this kind of BS or if they really buy into it.

Well, it is MSNBC so.........not surprised

Will have to see if this sentiment is echoed by the other liberal commentators on other MSM outlets, because as on now this lady is the only one I have heard using this particular talking point. If we start hearing it en masse from talking heads across networks, then we know this will be the next approach to bring down our current system.

No, she said in it's inception it was created by a racist institution, you know when her ancestors were actual slaves. No where in that short clip did she say Trump won this year because the EC is racist.

Spin doctor much?

IMO she is clearly trying to frame an argument for getting rid of the EC by basically saying it is a relic created by our racist forefathers, and by extension must be racist.

No, that's just like your opinion but shes absolutely right it's roots are deep in racism and it should be abolished. Americans have been wanting to get rid of the EC since it's inception. People bitching about it this year is nothing new. If I remember correctly, America has tried over 700 times to get rid of it but still it stands.

They use the old "guilt by association" meme.

It can be effective sometimes.

She also fails to discuss the actual purpose of the EC.

The 2 presidential candidates were white, was the EC supposed to vote for Ben Carson?

annnnnd....there it is,.. the ultimate proof of the left`s paranoia, they have gone completely off the deep end into the abyss of insanity, they have gone...dare I say it?....FULL RETARD!

There`s nothing wrong with being insane but to parade around in public being so proud of it is....is undignified, and embarrassing for the people who see you do it.

Perhaps the left ought to just come right out and admit that anything that doesn't give them what they want will be labeled with one nasty pejorative term or other. It would just make everything so much easier.
