Democrats still mourning the outcome of last month’s election have added a new step to their grieving process: leveling charges of racism against those who support the constitutional method of electing the president.
In keeping with the process stipulated in the Twelfth Amendment, 538 electors representing all 50 states gathered on Monday to cast their ballots for the 45th president. The result – that Donald Trump will officially enter the Oval Office on Jan. 20 – was affirmed by the Electoral College, an institution the Left is now casting as racist and anti-Democratic.
Mere hours after Trump had topped the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted: “Hello rest of the world! My fellow Americans are asleep right now so I thought we could talk and maybe explain what happened yesterday.”
“This racist idea, the Electoral College, 225 years later ended up benefitting the candidate who spewed racism hate,” he opined.
The New York Times, in an editorial on Tuesday, described the centuries-old institution as “a living symbol of America’s original sin,” arguing that it was created at a time when “slavery was the law of the land” and a national popular vote would have “disadvantaged” Southern slave states, where blacks could not vote but were counted as three-fifths of a person for the purposes of a population count.
