Not only is James Carville a scary looking, Skeletor type fella with a voice that is like fingernails on a chalkboard, but he’s also either very honest, very arrogant or very stupid. Either way, read the words of Mr. Carville and tell me whatcha think. Here is the direct quote as lifted from Thinkexist.com:
“Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.
What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
And the lefties scream it is conservatives who are too stupid to live, huh? Let’s diagnose Mr. Carville’s words.
He equates Democrats to a “herd of cows” I guess to portray the ignorant follow the lead tail mentality. I worked on a farm for a time. Cows will follow the leader to Hell and back. Get the lead bovine to follow you, and the rest will indeed follow along, so I assume that was his reference.
As well he likens the treatment of Democrats as one would treat a stupid animal, as cows are not the brightest bulbs in the pack.
Then Carville gets to the good stuff where he admits Democrats are stupid – so stupid in fact he chose to align with them because it’s just too difficult to fool Republicans. Apparently Democrats do not think for themselves according to Mr. Carville. He thinks ya just plant a seed, stir ‘em up and reap the support.
I love the quote “Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.” I have long maintained that Democrats are being led astray with falsehoods all to get them to follow along, and Carville proves this out with his words “That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
Folks, what does it state about one’s ideology when the power brokers admit the people they lead are too stupid to see, or care for that matter, as to what the truth really is? How long have Conservatives screamed at Democrats “Your leaders are lying to you?” No matter how many times I present facts that are not even remotely open to debate as to their factual nature, I am told I am wrong, mistaken or a liar.
Now it just remains to be seen how Mr. Carville’s words and meanings will be interpreted by those he defamed – DEMOCRATS! Will they say Carville’s words are not really what he said? I am using undocumented sources? Blah, blah, blah? .
Of course in all this I take pride and solace in numerous aspects of Carville’s words. They prove that it is not Republican’s who are uninformed and clueless, as Carville admits Republicans are much more well informed and less able to be led astray as are Democrats. Carville admits the game of Democrat politics is just that – a game whereby it’s objective is to mislead people to incense them and get them to do what their power brokers need for them to do in order to see the Democrat brand advance an agenda.
Carville’s vocal and clear disdain for Democrat rank and file persons should cause them to abandon their playing “follow the leader.” Of course, I doubt that will happen. Remember, Democrats must convince themselves conservatism is all they have been lyingly told it was, or the only option left is to admit they have been played for fools.
James Carville’s words and sentiments leave little else to take from them. He became Democrat because Democrats are too stupid to know better. They are easy to fool and easy to get to go along, even as Carville offers “What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.”
See. He admits they lie and are trying to create fear in the Democrat rank and file to get them to go along with the big wig’s desired agenda. And if one, as a Democrat, still refuses to accept the words of one of their own as to what the leadership is up to, they, the rank and file, will deserve what they are about to get come November.
Don’t say you weren’t told again and again. All that remains is to see if anyone has the pride to step up and scream “No! No more lies.” If they do that and open their mind to the truth we will see a new day. If not it will be more of the same – Democrats being led astray and lied to so their leaders can achieve what they are actually working for – unfettered and unchallenged power in perpetuity.
Remember, when it comes to stepping up and screaming “NO!” Republicans have been at that for a whole year now. Methinks if Democrats do not address this with extreme prejudice, they will prove Carville’s words true. I mean only an idiot or a person with no pride whatsoever would allow someone to slap ‘em around, call ‘em names and then that person still lines up for more future abuse.
Will Democrat rank and file do their own Tea Party type cleansing of their ranks, or as I suspect they will do, will they take the abuse then line up dutifully and ask, “Pleas Sir, may I have another?”
And they say Republicans are stupid liars – I think not – we know better then to let someone kick us in the teeth and then kindly ask for them to do it again, now don’t we?
