James Carville is one of the more famous Democrat strategists. He was key to Bill Clinton’s ascent to the White House, and also pushed Hillary Clinton and John Kerry in that direction, even though not successfully.
Now he has a new conclusion about the far left of his own Democrat party.
The “most stupid, naïve people you can imagine!”
It is Fox News that reported on Carville’s comments during an appearance on a podcast.
He took the opportunity to express his opinion on “woke,” “over-educated, coastal white” Democrats.
He pointed out Joe Biden’s poll numbers, in the negative numbers, “are not great.”
“I find the left to be just annoying,” Carville explained to Bill Maher. “The western far left is habitually the most stupid, naive people you can imagine. They come up with these really goofy constructs, and it’s all about feeling good about yourself.”
Maher pointed out that for members of that faction, “If your feelings are hurt, that’s more important than free speech.”
“Most people don’t even know what they’re talking about,” Carville said. “The identity left are silly. They’re not evil. They’re just goofy.”
But he did warn, in graphic terms, that such attitudes are driving people away from the party.
“What happened is, overeducated, coastal white people got ahold of the word, and [like] they do with everything else, they completely f—ed it up and p*ssed everybody in the country off. If we could just get the humanities faculty at Amherst [College] to shut the f— up, we’d be a lot better off.”
Those extremists, he warned, are, in fact dragging the party down.
