James Carville, a veteran Democratic strategist, has a tendency to be very blunt when it comes to his thoughts.
While working alongside Bill Clinton during their 1992 presidential run, he used the now fairly infamous line “It’s the economy, stupid” on the campaign staffers.
This has led to many political pundits instantly looking to him for a reaction in the was of the Democrats’ horrendous Election Day.
“What went wrong is just stupid wokeness,” stated Carville when talking to Judy Woodruff in an interview this past Wednesday on “PDS Newshour.”
“All right, don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools. I mean that — people see that,” Carville continued.
“It’s just really — has a suppressive effect all across the country on the Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a ‘woke’ detox center or something,” he stated. “They’re expressing a language that people just don’t use, and there’s backlash and a frustration at that.”
Carville went on to point out that the Republican candidate, Glenn Youngkin, took down longtime Clinton fundraiser Terry McAuliffe a peg when Youngkin took the win for the gubernatorial election in Virginia. For the entire run, Youngkin did not target President Biden, even though McAuliffe made it a goal to repeatedly try and tie Youngkin to former Presiden Trump, but Youngkin would not stoop to that level and stuck to pertinent local issues.
The veteran strategist stated that the Democrats are entirely too focused on using woke language. “We got to change this and not be about changing dictionaries and change laws,” explained Carville. “These faculty lounge people that sit around mulling about I don’t know what. They’re not working.”
Carville went on to mock the protests taking place in Seattle by the leftists, also making humorous note of the anti-police “autonomous zone.” This coming Tuesday when the voters use their voices at the polls, many local news sources state that they think that Seattle will be sporting a new Republican city attorney.
“Autonomous zone? Who could even think of something that stupid?!” exclaimed Carville.
Carville has made it a point to repeatedly sling criticisms at Democrats about their moving too far left, making note that generally Americans are very close to the middle. “And I got news for you, you’re hurting the party, you’re hurting the very people that you want to help!” he stated.
