“Ragin’ Cajun” James Carville should consider consulting a medical professional to see if he needs to be treated for mood swings or something, judging by his latest diatribe against Republican voters.
The ‘enlightened one’ unloaded on “stupid” Trump voters who he said “don’t believe in evolution” while going on to claim that “a substantial number of people in the Republican Party, are evil.”
Carville made his inflammatory and inherently false remarks during an interview with The Hill’s Niall Stanage this week after he was asked to respond to the defeat of Democrats’ newest favored RINO of the Month, Liz Cheney, who was destroyed on Tuesday in Wyoming’s GOP primary by Trump-backed lawyer Harriet Hageman.
Like a typical left-wing hack, Carville began with racial gaslighting, mentioning how Democratic Georgia Gov. Lester Maddox was replaced by another Democrat, Jimmy Carter, who would go on to serve a disastrous single term as U.S. president.
“The problem that the Republican Party has is … Lester Maddox, the former governor of Georgia, said famously, ‘The problem with the prisons in Georgia is the quality of inmate,’” Carville said quoting the former governor. “The problem the Republican Party has is they got really stupid people that vote in their primaries. And when you have that, you’re going to get in – really stupid people demand to have really stupid leaders. And that’s where the Republican Party is now.”
He went on to claim that the FBI’s politicized raid of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate may wind up being “the biggest story since 9/11,” a reference to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.
To be fair, Carville had some pretty harsh words for his own party as well, ripping “silly” elements like Democrats’ “defund the police” movement and calls to trash Abraham Lincoln and other white historical figures as “colonizers.”
“[The left] have the ability to come up with really stupid things like ‘Defund the Police’ — the three worst words ever in the English language, maybe. And it’s ‘Let’s get rid of Abraham Lincoln.’ That takes a really smart person to come up with that!” he said, disdainfully.
Carville went on to claim that although only about “11 percent” of members of his party believe in such things, while “65 percent” of Republicans “don’t believe in evolution” and “follow Donald Trump” — none of which “makes any sense to a guy like me.”
“Huge majorities of the Republican Party don’t believe in evolution, alright? Huge majorities of the Republican Party followed Donald Trump,” he remarked. “But somehow or another, we pay a greater price for 11% of our people than they do for 65% of their people.”
“There’s, we have our, our people are kind of silly. Their people actually — racism is evil, alright? Misogyny is evil. I’m sorry, alright?” Carville pontificated. “A pronoun is, to me is – ok, fine. I mean, it’s kind of like, you know, if you want to be a vegan, I don’t care. Eat what you want to eat, alright? But that’s not, that’s not the same thing.”

There are elements of truth in both extremes Carville mentioned, but in fact, voters in his party continue electing people who a) want to defund police; b) want to destroy women’s sports; c) want young children to watch drag shows; d) believe there are more than two genders; and e) support economy-killing measures like the war on fossil fuels over the nebulous claim of “climate change.”
Most Americans, regardless of party, do not believe in those things, hence the reason why Democrats “pay more” for those policies than Republicans.
This isn’t rocket science. This is someone who is trying to stay relevant.
