Freshman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has advocated, along with other liberals, for cities to stop recognizing “Columbus Day.”
Sandusky, Ohio took notice.
Now, it’s gone.
From The Hill:
Officials in the city of Sandusky, Ohio, have decided that the city will no longer observe Columbus Day as a holiday, switching it for Election Day.
A number of cities have stopped observing Columbus Day or begun marking “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” instead, citing Christopher Columbus and other European explorers’ treatment of Native Americans.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has advocated for making the change nationally. And a November survey from Hill.TV and HarrisX polling company found that a majority of respondents favor making Election Day a federal holiday.
More from Sandusky Register:
Previously a paid vacation day, paid time off hours for Columbus Day now shift to Election Day, typically falling on the first Tuesday in November.
The new rule takes effect this year.
Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day.
It says a lot about her.
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?

10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

Check out this clip of AOC on the Democrat Party, her “Green New Deal,” and 2020 presidential candidates:
During an interview on
MSDNC MSNBC, documentary filmmaker and noted Trump-hater Michael Moore suggested amending the Constitution so Ocasio-Cortez could run for president before the age of 35.
He also made it clear that AOC is now the leader of the Democrat Party.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to wait 6 years to run for president, but Michael Moore wants to amend the Constitution so she can run next year.
Claiming even the MSNBC cameraman could beat Donald Trump, the socialist filmmaker said the discussion needs to be about who can “crush” the President in 2020.
Moore: “It’s too bad that you have to be 35 to be President. You know, they put that in the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, because people died at 38 or 40 back then. You know, we need to lower that. If that was lowered to 30…”
Check out Alexandria claiming she’s privileged because she was born straight.
From Daily Wire:
Even intersectionality Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acknowledges she has some privilege. And, no, it’s not the privilege of growing up in the largely affluent Westchester county. According to the freshman congresswoman, she inherited “cisgender privilege.”
Speaking on The Intercept podcast this week, Ocasio-Cortez talked in depth about all kinds of privilege in the United States, from white privilege to gender privilege. First, she asserted that woke white people need to go beyond simply acknowledging the racism that pervades all of American society.
AOC: “Acknowledging racism is a really big step. It’s a really big step from where we were … It’s nowhere near enough and the solutions are so painful.”
AOC: “Frankly, I find it — I find the solutions for white communities to be very painful because it’s very painful for a community to understand and have go through this — like, you can be — the idea that you can be poor and benefit from the color of your skin does not compute for a lot of people. And going through that realization is very painful or even just economically for people that were born with silver spoons. It’s very painful to admit that you had advantages.”
.@AOC: I acknowledge my "privilege" in being born "cisgendered"
"I'm a cisgendered woman, I will never know the trauma of feeling like I'm not born in the right body. That is a privilege I have no matter how poor my family was when I was born." pic.twitter.com/QkviNMtLmv
