MURDOCK: Wokistanis Keep James Carville up at Night

Democrat political operative James Carville is losing sleep these days. Blame it on the Wokistanis.

Wokeness is a problem and everyone knows it,” said the man who helped Bill Clinton grab the White House from a largely disengaged G.H.W. Bush in 1992. In an interview published yesterday, Carville told Vox’s Sean Illing: “It’s hard to talk to anybody today — and I talk to lots of people in the Democratic Party — who doesn’t say this. But they don’t want to say it out loud.”

Carville is absolutely correct about Americans whispering their misgivings about the Left. I repeatedly speak with people who criticize everything from political correctness to Joe Biden’s Captain Queeg-like obsession with “systemic racism.” Lately, these folks look both ways and then address these matters in hushed tones. So deep is the fear of being exposed as un-woke and then suffering anything from social opprobrium to assisted career suicide. The fact that such whispers are now being uttered among Leftists confirms just how totalitarian things have become in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

But Carville is on shakier ground when he says that what Democrats suffer is merely a failure to communicate. “We have to speak the way regular people speak, the way voters speak. It ain’t complicated.”

Democrats and the Left are not suffering due to the style of their expression, but because of the substance of their message. It’s not just that the Left busy themselves by pompously “declaring their pronouns,” something normal human beings don’t do. The Left also eschews the fairly new term for Hispanics. “Latinos” no longer is good enough. The Woke mob has moved on to the gender-neutral “Latinx” with an X.

Of course, this is not proper Spanish, where every noun ends with either a masculine o or a feminine a. The x plays no part in this. So, “Latinx” is not even the proper Spanish spoken in Latin America or Spain. Rather this is linguistic colonialism by largely white Leftists who have imposed their cultural boots on the neck of a language that goes back centuries and was doing muy bien, gracias before they showed up.

Shame on the Wokistanis for this cultural diss.

Far worse than words or message is the substance of what the Democrat Left does:

Pushing their “defund the police” program has turned out to be both very unpopular and outright disastrous.

According to the Washington Examiner, recent surveys show that 70 percent of blacks think cops are doing a “very good” or “somewhat good” job. The supposed beneficiaries of police defunding turn out not to like this policy. And why should they? Since major, Democrat-mismanaged cities defunded their cops last year, in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, homicide rates have shot up like geysers. Shooting incidents in New York City were up 250 percent last week, year-on-year. Year to date, homicides are up 31 percent in Washington, D.C., 33 percent in Chicago and Philadelphia, and 36 percent in NYC.


The Wokistanis, led by Biden, will not stop harping on “systemic racism.” Never mind the tremendous success of black people in the private and public sectors since Emancipation.

White parents are not crazy about having their grade-school kids screamed at and told that they are racists.

Cancelistas also cost people their jobs for things that they wrote or said as teenagers.

Alexi McCammond wrote some unfortunate things via Twitter at age 17. She erased those comments, apologized for them, and was upfront about them with the publishers of Teen Vogue, who hired her as that magazine’s new editor-in-chief. But that was not good enough. The Wokistanis in Teen Vogue‘s newsroom began gathering sticks and kindling for the bonfire on which they planned to incinerate McCammond. So, she quit before assuming her new duties.

Even worse, if that’s possible, is what befell Curt Boganey. The city manager of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota was “relieved of his duties” after saying that Kimberly Potter, the female cop who allegedly fired a fatal shot at Daunte Wright, was entitled to due process — as are all 330 million people fortunate to call themselves American.

This is terrible substance, not just bad messages.

And if the Democrat Wokistanis keep this up, they will get what they deserve at the polls in 2022 — good and hard.

  1. It’s your rotten party Carville and it has been that way for years and you have always defended it. Listen to your wife more often is my suggestion.

      1. Then he should get outta the kitchen. The inmates now run the asylum and will listen to him no more.

    1. The DeoncRats…have left more than just Mr. Carville behind, as they run head long
      ….directly into the “arms”…..of Socialism, Woke-ism and a “few” other unnamed evils.

  2. Democrats conjoined to BLM created this to a large extent. No longer a Democratic Party. It’s now Socialists Marxist Party, they need to be labeled as such, maybe the change in terminology will wake some people up.

    1. All Carville has is his opinion and what he “assumes” to be true in the Dem party. And, you know what is said about those who assume…….it makes an ass/u/me aka it makes as “ass” of “you” and “me”! Carville is the old school liberal Democrat and he understands/knows as much about this new party of marxist socialist/communist Democrat party as I, a conservative Republican! As Carville would say, that “ain’t” much!

  3. Democrats DELIBERATELY pushed Bernie Sanders out of their Presidential race-twice-because he was HONEST about being a Socialist. They were afraid that his oft voiced Socialist stance would turn voters away. They chose Biden because they felt he had a reputation as a moderate, one that uninformed voters would fall for, and because they knew he could be easily manipulated.
    It’s not a “failure to speak the way regular people speak” as Carville claimed. Those party members who are expressing concern are in truth recognizing that the tactic of using wokeism and racism has been overused by Democrats and Americans are starting to see it for what it is. They are afraid, with good reason, that average Americans are watching the Biden administration’s policies and recognizing that they were hoodwinked.

    1. Yep, people who voted for Biden now realize they were screwed over, lied to AND they want their votes back! I want them to have their votes back too!
      Biden/Harris = 3rd term for BHO

  4. I hope they keep it up and we sweep them out of the house and Senate in 2022 and the whitehouse in 2024 and return to the MAGA where things are good for everyone except the media and social media.

  5. Carville won’t admit his party are leftists and totalitarian. When will he admit it and turn away from all of it? Probably never.

  6. Sorry. Carville deserves the same crap flung at him as does biddyboy, pelosi, schumer and all the other idiots that “CREATED” THIS “WOKENISM” ATMOSPHERE. Let’s hope all those morons get to feel, up close and personal, the wrath from that immature, egocentric group of misfits that are trying so desperately to destroy what America stands for.

    WOKE CULTURE IS TRULY THE MOST “LOST” OF ALL THE GENERATIONS! They will leave no mark on history but a dirty smudge from their whining and hissyfits. What a waste of humanity when they could have done something Special with their lives…instead they destroy. What goes around, comes around. They had better watch their backs and attitudes. Americans are done with them!

  7. James Carville is no longer relevant and would be booed off the stage by the marxist socialist/communist Dems if speaking at the Democrat Convention! He was such a main player, the face and voice of his party, in Billy Bob Clinton’s day!

  8. Dems don’t even know what they believe anymore so turn to fairy tales and make believe and that’s the “woke culture” and censoring. Don’t know what your believe so censor others that know what they believe. As far from logical thinking as the sun is from uranus. Oh, that’s right, uranus doesn’t exist anymore, or does it? That’s woke culture.

  9. Yeah. Watch out if you ‘awaken’ the ‘woke’ like the parable of Doctor Faust invoking demons. For they MAY serve you and do your bidding for a while; but sooner or later they will come for YOU.
