“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.” – Hillary Clinton, Democratic Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America, 2016
FoxNews.com reports that
James Carville, a former top adviser to President Clinton, laid out a scathing critique of his party, arguing that it drifted way too far to the left and was on the way to failure as a result of pushing extreme policy ideas.
“We just had an election in 2018. We did great. We talked about everything we needed to talk about and we won,” he said in a Vox interview published on Friday. “And now it’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here.”
Carville added that he considered himself a “liberal” rather than a centrist — but Democrats went too far even for him.
“They’ve tacked off the damn radar screen,” he said when asked if the party moved too far left.
His comments came just after another interview in which he said he was “scared to death” after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., netted a large portion of the vote in Iowa’s caucuses.
According to Carville, both Sanders and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., were pushing “stupid” ideas about higher education.
“Democrats talking about free college tuition or debt forgiveness. I’m not here to debate the idea. What I can tell you is that people all over this country worked their way through school, sent their kids to school, paid off student loans. They don’t want to hear this s–t. And you saw Warren confronted by an angry voter over this. It’s just not a winning message,” he said.
Carville was referring to a tense interaction in which a father blasted Warren for forgiving student debt after he and his daughter worked to pay off her loans.
Carville also took a shot at Sanders for saying that he wanted to expand voting rights for people like the Boston bomber. Sanders, the well-known Democratic strategist suggested, would be ineffective as president and wasn’t representative of the Democratic Party. Instead, Carville said, he is an “ideologue.”
“[H]ere’s what I do know: Sanders might get 280 electoral votes and win the presidency and maybe we keep the House,” Carville said. “But there’s no chance in hell we’ll ever win the Senate with Sanders at the top of the party defining it for the public …So long as McConnell runs the Senate, it’s game over. There’s no chance we’ll change the courts and nothing will happen, and he’ll just be sitting up there screaming in the microphone about the revolution.”
At one point, Carville took aim at a New York Times writer, who posted a “snarky tweet” about Louisiana State University (LSU) — Carville’s alma mater.
“You know how f—–g patronizing that is to people in the South or in the middle of the country? First, LSU has an unusually high graduation rate, but that’s not the point. It’s the goddamn smugness. This is from a guy who lives in New York and serves on the Times editorial board and there’s not a single person he knows that doesn’t pat him on the back for that kind of tweet. He’s so f—–g smart.
“[Binyamin] Appelbaum doesn’t speak for the Democratic Party, but he does represent the urbanist mindset,” he said. “We can’t win the Senate by looking down at people. The Democratic Party has to drive a narrative that doesn’t give off vapors that we’re smarter than everyone or culturally arrogant.”
It’s a little too late for that, Jimmy.
After his gig as Vice-President was over with, “Sleepy Joe” Biden, believe it or not, made a profound statement in an exit interview with the Los Angeles Times.
He said his party failed to connect with working-class, largely white voters, and warned that “a bit of elitism” has “crept in” to party thinking.
He recalled watching a Trump rally in Pennsylvania near where he grew up. “They’re all the people I grew up with,” he said. “They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”
There’s a reason for that.
The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.
I was that arrogance3 which cost them the 2016 Presidential Election.
It is that same arrogance which has caused their Trump Derangement Syndrome and has caused them to believe that they have the right to nullify the votes of the millions of Americans who elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
It is also their arrogance which allows them to believe that a bunch of Far Left Candidates from the Northeast will garner a significant amount of votes in the South.
While President Trump is from the Northeast, also, there is a HUGE difference between him and the remaining field of Democratic Candidates.
Trump means what he says.
He has proven that by fulfilling his Campaign promises with the entire Democratic Party trying everything they could think of to stop him.
Trump genuinely loves average Americans.
I have been to a MAGA Rally and it was phenomenal. Unlike professional politicians, like the Democratic Primary Candidates, he spoke TO us, not at us, laughing and joking with us, actually speaking like we do.
As proven by their Captain Ahab-like obsession with deposing President Trump, the Democrats still don’t “get it”.
James Carville is right. They have lost their d**n minds.
However, there is no chance of them regaining them any time soon.
Their hatred of Trump and us “Deplorables” simply won’t let them.
And, that is fine with us.
Until He Comes,
