”Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville blamed “stupid wokeness” for his party’s disastrous Election Day showing in Virginia and New Jersey.
Carville appeared on “PBS NewsHour” on Wednesday and was asked how Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the gubernatorial race in Virginia — a state President Biden won a year before by 10 percentage points.
“Well, what went wrong is this stupid wokeness,” said Carville, who was Gov. Bill Clinton’s campaign manager in 1992.
“Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey,” he added of the Garden State, where Democratic incumbent Gov. Phil Murphy barely eked out a second term.
“Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis. Even look at Seattle, Wash. I mean, this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this ‘take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools,’ that — people see that,” he continued.
Carville, known as the “Ragin’ Cajun,” said such policies have a “suppressive effect” across the country, and he suggested that progressive Democrats “need to go to a woke detox center.”” NY Post
Comment: Hopefully the Demo/Marxists will ignore him. Before he went home to Louisiana he and I owned places in the Shenandoah Valley near Strasburg. I would see him occasionally at Crabill’s Meats near Tom’s Brook and chat with him outside in the parking. The Crabill people inside once asked me what was wrong with him. “He should know better. He’s one of us …”
I grew up 5 mins from LSU. He is a disgrace to Cajun culture and the state of La. James is an old dusty relic from the Clinton era which is now a tiny spec in the rear view. The BLM and antifa riots were organized by the DNC along with the facade disease protocols. It had nothing to do with wokeness. People are sick of these tyrants in their intoxicated state of power. It has caused enormous harm to the majority of Americans.
Yes Indeed..Spot On..They are the DOPE Party.,,,,Drunk On Power Elitest..and They Have Doped Up And Dummied Down The United States…since Their .Culture War began in the 1960s…Literally..Dope..Destruction ..Democrats.
” “He should know better. He’s one of us …” ”
He sold out a long time ago. He’s never paid any price for the destruction he helped bring on to the middle and lower classes of the Republic.
““Suburbanites in northern Virginia, suburbanites in northern New Jersey … he did is just let the Democrats pull the pin and watch the grenade go off on them,” Carville said.”
Trump, for this faults, fought for the blue color workers abandoned and betrayed by the left. Now he’s 4-0 on backed candidates and this election is helping swing the suburbanites back to reality. Which is easy to do now since there is nary a mean tweet to be seen from Mr. T to all the press to create an emotional smokescreen.
Right. And the dumba** was parroting the dem narrative prior to the election: dog whistles, bigots, etc.
It absolutely has something to do with wokeness. Regular folk are sick and tired of
these woke idiots. The great silent majority has had it and they are starting to speak out. Personally I don’t give a damn about these wokes, I wouldn’t p___ on them to put the fire out.
As far as the Cajun goes, he still has it, the political strategy smarts, but his opinion is not something the Pelosi etc crowd wants to hear. You know, like Bill’s opinions weren’t welcomed by Madame wannabe President during the 2016 campaign. Look where that got her.
The Republic was lost once casino capitalism swept aside all other concepts of productive enterprise. Political figures are just dealers standing at different tables—the only constant rule is the house wins; the rest of the rules, “values”, and “strategies” are just distractions. The best luck you can have is being born into the right family.
The Democrats are losing because having grown tired of one table the crowd moseys onto the next, continuing to play until it loses hope of any reward.
If you want to be depressed, interact with the younger generations. They have grown so dependent on the mediation of technology in everyday life, that they don’t realize that while technologies allow you to realize your dreams, you first have to have the imagination and autonomy to have dreams in the first place. They are trapped in “me-loops”, with whatever infantile interests being served to them again and again due to filter bubbles and “curated” news, while they don’t realize they are the product.
Whoever controls the curators, will control the content of such loops, and whoever controls the loops in which the youth dwell, will control the mobs on the virtual streets.
The Russians and the Chinese know this well, and as their flatfooted actions give away the real game being played, they are made out to be irrational, freedom-hating enemies. For it is their totalitarian practices that illuminate the totalitarian practices of our techno-overlords. If you can see other games being played, you are more likely to see the one you are trapped within.
I believe that one of the longest lasting consequences of the Trump administration will be the spreading of Republican support among the black american community, erstwhile a monolithic democrat bloc. Really, the only monolithic democrat bloc in the country in modern history. No longer.
You can be an American or you can be a Democrat, you can’t be both.
The Democrat-media party has despised America for a long time – at least since the 70’s.
Remember the hateful bile and tantrums when Reagan got elected?
Trump’s election so enraged them that the last mask dropped.

Carville said of Paula Jones “This is what you get when you drag a one hundred dollar bill through a trailer park”. A vile , ugly man, through and through. Perhaps he was a pleasant person face to face which makes him something worse – an ugly pit bull hatchet man selling to the highest bidder.
