During an appearance on PBS’s NewsHour, long-time Democrat strategist James Carville blamed “stupid wokeness” for his party’s defeats on Tuesday in Virginia’s elections, in which, for example, pro-Critical Race Theory gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe lost to Republican Glenn Youngkin.
“[W]hat went wrong is just stupid wokeness,” Carville declared. “Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. 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. I mean that — people see that.”
“It’s just really — has a suppressive effect all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a ‘woke’ detox center or something,” Carville continued. “They’re expressing a language that people just don’t use, and there’s backlash and a frustration at that.”
Carville is right for once, but it is unlikely anyone in his party will take heed. It is under the control of radical Marxists who have no intention of reining in their woke agenda.
