During a Monday appearance on Bill Maher’s “Club Random” podcast, Democratic strategist James Carville reportedly referred to the identity left as “goofy” and claimed that “overeducated, cultural, white liberals” damage everything.
The two were discussing how apparently “deplorable” the Hollywood elite consider former President Donald Trump’s fans to be.
Following that, the two discussed President Joe Biden’s bid for reelection.
Maher said that since Biden will lose to Trump, Democrats should pick a different candidate. Carville then outlined what he believes to be the Democratic Party’s main issue.
“The problem is, of the Democratic Party, the percent of Democrats — and we know this over a few general polls … about 10 or 11 percent of Democrats describe themselves as ‘progressive liberal,’ whatever that means. It’s a very — this is survey after survey. And these people are annoying, silly … but they come to you because you live here, you work in entertainment … the identity left is all around you. You know, most people don’t even know what they’re talking about. But by the way, the number of MAGA people is 65 percent or so. We pay a greater price for 10 percent of our party than they pay for 65 percent of that party.” Carville said.
“The identity, identity left are silly. They’re not evil, they’re just goofy. The original word ‘woke’ — and I did some research on this — the first time that people think it came up was a black jazz musician who was born around Shreveport, died in a jail in Houston. And the word was to denote that black people need to be ‘woke’ in their interactions with police, which seemed like a good idea. And then what happened was overeducated, cultural, white people got a hold to the word and as they do everything else, they completely fucked it up and pissed everybody in the country off.” Carville concluded.
