A leading Democrat strategist says his party’s awakened obsession with “veganism and pronouns” has emboldened the GOP to end federal protections against abortion.
James Carville – a former adviser to the Clinton administration – said his party is now so enslaved by petty progressive obsessions that its conservative Supreme Court justices are “not afraid” of Roe v Wade’s end.
Appears on CNN‘s OutFront, he said: ‘Today you [Republicans] not afraid of Democrats, that’s why they do it. They have to understand what a huge event this is in American politics … Roe v Wade is more than two-to-one in agreement,” Carville told host Erin Burnett on Thursday.
“And Alito and she said we didn’t care. We’re not fair and we don’t care, and all the Democrats are going to do is sit around and talk about veganism and pronouns.
Carville was referring to Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote the draft opinion ending the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion ruling that was leaked last Monday. The “they” he spoke of seemed to be a reference to the other five Supreme Court justices, who enjoy a comfortable supermajority.
Carville went on to say that the outrage stoked by the Supreme Court’s leaked bill last week may not be enough to sway voters in favor of the Democrats this November.
“I hope people understand that the Louisiana legislature passed legislation today that would charge a 20-year-old young woman with murder if she seeks an abortion,” the political strategist added.
Carville also claimed that the ultra-liberal policies of much of the Democratic Party have largely ignored mainstream thinking, leading the GOP to become much bolder in challenging longstanding liberal social conventions.
“In Texas, the governor has challenged children’s right to public education. In Oklahoma they passed a law that you can’t even get an abortion [even if pregnancy is dangerous] for the mother,” remarked Carville.
‘She [Democrats] You have to get out of Washington and start motivating people.’

Carville himself said he was upset and disturbed after learning of the Supreme Court’s leaked Roe v Wade draft last week.
In the leaked document, Conservative Justice Samuel Alito wrote that Roe v Wade — the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling that found excessive state regulation of abortion to be unconstitutional — was “enormously wrong from the start” and “overrules.” must become”.
Alito, who was nominated for the court by George W. Bush in 2006, argues that Roe’s “reasoning was exceptionally weak and the decision had deleterious consequences.”
When asked if he believed Hillary Clinton’s comments that outrage would get Democrats to show themselves massive at the ballot box, Carville said he “hoped” she was right but doubted it.
“If that doesn’t motivate people, if that doesn’t drive you, then I can’t help you. And I’ll tell you who doesn’t help. It’s the progressive interest groups. Nobody cares what they say, nobody fears them,” Carville explained.
Carville went on to blast Democrats for doing “stupid shit” after spending large sums on the 2020 campaigns of defeated Kentucky Senate nominee Amy McGrath and South Carolina Senate nominee Jaime Harrison, who unsurprisingly lost to GOP rabble-rousers Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell, respectively.
“They always wanted to lose those races, but the Democrats keep doing this stupid shit,” Carville said. “You’re too damn emotional. Democrats are obsessed with high-profile races they can’t win because that’s where all the attention is focused. We are addicted to hopeless causes.’
Carville, who has advised more than 23 political candidates outside the United States, is famous for coining the motto “the economy, stupid” to keep Bill Clinton on the one message he thought really mattered in 1992

Last year, Carville blamed “stupid wakefulness” for his party’s shock defeat in the Virginia gubernatorial election, where Biden won the 2021 presidential election by 10 points.
“What went wrong is this stupid awakening. Alright?” he told PBS in November.
“Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis. Even check out Seattle, Washington. I mean, this defund the police craze, removing Abraham Lincoln’s name from schools, this — people see this.
He continued, “Some of these people need to go to an awake detox center or something. They express language that people just don’t use. And there’s a backlash and frustration about that.’
Earlier in April 2021, he warned Democrats about the consequences of the party’s “vigilance,” noting that Biden had won by a very narrow margin while Democrats had lost congressional seats and failed to win state legislators.
“The reason is simple: They have a message delivery problem,” he said.
“Ever get the feeling that the people in the faculty lounges at fancy colleges speak a different language than ordinary people? They come up with a word like ‘Latinx’ that nobody else uses,” he told VOX.com in April 2021.
Carville said last year that Democrats need to integrate more rural white voters, which they won’t do unless they start talking like “normal people” and stop tweeting about getting rid of the police, because “almost nobody wants to fuck”. g want to do that
Carville’s comments that Democrats are losing the party’s voter base are not unfounded as approval ratings continue to fall. A poll on Wednesday found that a clear majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the US economy, while nearly eight in 10 rate their condition as poor
At the time, Carville had said Democrats needed to integrate more rural white voters, which they wouldn’t do unless they start talking like “normal people” and stop tweeting about abolishing the police because “almost nobody wants to fuck.” “. **g want to do that.’

A poll on Wednesday found that a clear majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the US economy, while nearly eight in 10 rate their condition as poor.
According to the CNN/SSRS poll conducted between April 28 and May 1, only 23 percent of people said the economy was “fairly good.”
The latest reflection of Americans’ frustration with Democrats like Biden — some six months ahead of November’s midterm elections — comes against a backdrop of decades of inflation, outpacing even record wage growth, as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
