Many of the ideas of the radical left Democrats appeal to children who don’t know any better.

Democrats therefore want children to be able to vote.

In the case of Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, she just doesn’t understand why anyone would speak out against such an idea.

Squad member Pressley says she is “shocked” that lowering the voting age to 16 is a polarizing problem

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Said Thursday she was “shocked” that lowering the legal voting age to 16 was a “polarizing” topic of debate.

Pressley – a co-sponsor of a resolution on HR 1 aimed at bringing the voting age down to 16 years old – spoke up Thursday during a live Facebook chat with Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., And author Ibram Kendi .

“DR. Kendi, I was shocked at how polarizing a topic was and I listened when I told people about it [the late Rep.] John Lewis is an original co-sponsor of it – you know, our young people deserve to have a stakeholder in our democracy, ”replied Pressley, a member of the so-called“ Squad, ”Kendi, who said the voting is to bring down age an example of anti-racist politics.

Kendi replied that one of the areas of discussion he had raised frequently was the “disenfranchisement” of black and brown Americans.

“Young blacks and browns in particular face the brunt of disenfranchisement,” he said. “And if … the younger generations are predominantly black and brown, this leads to greater disenfranchisement.”

As is typical of Democrats, she tries to do everything about race.

It has nothing to do with racing. It’s common sense. At 16, you are too young to join the military, you have no life experience and you have not contributed to the system at all.

If anything, we should raise the voting age, not lower it.
