AOC  just called for unconstitutional quotas in the last place that ever needs them

The Democrat base isn’t too pleased with President Joe Biden right now. 

But they always have New York Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) advocating for their woke policies. 

But AOC  just called for unconstitutional quotas in the last place that ever needs them. 

Democrats need there to be two Americas 

Democrats have successfully divided Americans along political lines.

However, the more voters wake up to their dirty tricks, the further and harder the Party and its politicians have to push their racist, sexist, heterophobic, anti-biology agenda. 

The Party that fought against civil rights is once again turning to segregation as the answer to America’s problems. 

Universities have clubs and spaces that white students aren’t allowed to join. 

Woke corporations – like Disney and many others – list jobs for which white men need not apply.

Despite quotas being struck down as unconstitutional, Democrats found a way to skirt the law by what they call Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI). 

And now the leader of The Squad, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), wants DEI to decide the makeup of Congress. 

AOC demands an affirmative-action Congress 

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is furious that voters have the nerve to elect candidates based on character and policies instead of skin color, sex, sexual orientation, and supposed “gender identity.” 

She let her frustration out during a GOP oversight Congressional Committee hearing. 

America First Legal called AOC’s outburst an “unhinged rant” and posed an interesting question. 

“Is AOC suggesting we should elect members of Congress based on race and sex?” they asked.

Let’s examine her words to see if there’s an obvious answer to that question. 

“I think one of the things we need to take a look at is the world that they’re (Republicans) fighting for,” AOC began. “A world without Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion policies. Which is to say the default. Which is to say workplaces that are, honestly, kinda like Congress. Because the population of the United States is about 59% white. Do you know what percentage of Congress is white? 75%. Men are 50% of the population – and make about 70% of Congress.” 

First of all, the bartender turned Representative from the Bronx doesn’t have her facts completely straight. 

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, 71% of the United States are white alone or a white combination. 

71% is actually pretty darn close to 75%. 

And yes, men are almost 50% of the population.

However, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 70% of working aged men are in the workforce compared to just 57% of working aged women. 

However, none of that really matters because that’s not how elections work. 

AOC ruining the republic 

The real problem with AOC’s DEI diatribe wasn’t her faulty data.

The real problem was the premise itself. 

For a representative republic to work, voters must cast ballots for the candidates who best represent their values and ideals. 

They have to vote for the candidate who they believe is best for the job. 

If voters do their job and uphold their responsibilities, then there is no way to dictate the demographic breakdown of Congress like AOC wants to do. 

The current system allows for voters to focus on merit, but AOC would prefer a racist affirmative action system for governing the republic.
