In this day and age, it is not an exaggeration to state that the Democrat Party has been overtaken by radicals, extremists, and even communists.
The hard left wholly dominates the mainstream Democrat Party of today. It’s nothing like the party from decades ago that disagreed with Republicans on some policy issues but still embraced common sense for the most part.
As the Democrat Party continues to descend into insanity and radicalism, the few reasonable leftists that remain are quickly being driven out. Look no further than how leftists have treated Democrat Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, simply because these lawmakers don’t want to abolish the filibuster.
In light of this and much more, a longtime Democratic strategist is now laying into his party, as reported by TheBlaze.
It is a common belief amongst Democrats that conservatives and non-leftists are threats. However, Democrats should be worried about
During a Vox interview, longtime Democratic political strategist James Carville explained the many problems facing his party. Carville lambasted Democrats for investing significant funds in states like Kentucky, South Carolina, etc., where candidates of their party have next to no chance of winning.
The issues facing Democrats aren’t just fiscal, though. Likewise, the left-wing political strategist told Vox that Democrats are too emotional, referencing their attacks against Sen. Manchin as silly.
According to Carville, who described himself as a “liberal Democrat,” the progressive left is losing the debate, seeing as only 6% of US adults and 11% to 12% of Democrats describe themselves as “progressives.”
The longtime Democratic strategist explained that as his party makes various attacks against Manchin, they’re missing the fact that he’s more aligned with where most Americans stand.
Finally, Carville slammed the “woke” faction of the Democrat Party. According to the strategist, minor parts of the party make the loudest noise in favor of “woke” talking points like defunding the police, abolishing prisons, and opening jails.
Now and then, Democrats like James Carville come out and warn that the party is on the wrong track. Yet, mainstream Democrats like Biden, Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez, and others don’t seem to be listening.
All in all, the mainstream Democrat Party of today seems to believe that if they persist in their ways for long enough, the rest of the nation will eventually get on board. This ill-conceived notion is a prime example of why Democrats will get buried in the November midterm elections.
