Democrat Party Melting Down Over Fundamental Question: Stay Woke and Alienate 90% of Independents, Or Break from Wokeness and Alienate the Democrat Base of Wealthy White College Students, Guilty Wealthy White Suburban Professionals, and Minority Activists

Begun, the Woke Wars have.

James Carville laid the blame for the the election squarely on the Woke left, stating What went wrong is this stupid wokeness" and "some people need to go to a woke detox center or something," He decried taking down statues of Lincoln and "changing dictionaries [instead of] changing laws" and "faculty type people that sit around moaning about, I don't know what."

Well this was all too much for Little Miss Thing to bear. Alexandria Donkey-Chompers goes full "ageist," attacking James Carville as "older" for using term "wokeism.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to Twitter to slam Democratic strategist James Carville, and others, for blaming the party's "wokeness" for Terry McAuliffe's gubernatorial loss in Virginia, claiming that the terms is "almost exclusively used by older people."

"How can news outlets even attribute words to me I didnít say," Ocasio-Cortez questioned in a tweet, linking to a report and another tweet from ABC 13 News in Virginia which quoted the New York congresswoman as saying McAuliffe lost the race because he was not "woke" enough.

"I said there are limits to trying to mobilize a campaign with a 100% moderate strategy without mobilizing the base," Ocasio-Cortez added. "Said nothing [about] 'wokeness' which is a term almost exclusively used by older people these days btw".

Ocasio-Cortez, a member of far-left progressive Squad, also claimed that the word "woke" is used primarily by "Carville and Fox News pundits." She said statements targeting younger generations as "woke" by older Democrats will hurt "youth turnout" at the polls.

Gen Z did vote Democrat. Millennials split down the middle. Gen X and Boomers voted Republican.

Carville had also spoken about that -- he said that it was woke politics that were "suppressing" the Democrats' vote.


CNN's Ashley Allison of course is all-in on neoliberal woke bullshit on Don LeMon's nightly racist religious sermon.


CNN political contributor Ashley Allison called veteran Democratic strategist James Carville's advice to steer aware from the woke agenda "highly problematic." Allison, a Biden-Harris 2020 consultant, told CNN host Don Lemon on Thursday that Democrats should stop using words like woke and "start telling the truth."

"In Virginia, yes, Democrats didn't win but it wasn't because Terry McAuliffe was a, quote, unquote, 'woke candidate,'" Allison said. "I even don't like that term, because what does that mean? A candidate that stands up for poor people, black people, people who don't think that people should be killed at the hands of police? So, I don't think James Carville is right on that, and it's highly problematic if that's what the Democrats are going to follow."

"We should stop using words like wokeism, we should stop using terms like critical race theory to describe things that are not actually that," she said. "We should start telling the truth. And what happened in Virginia is that Youngkin and the Republicans launched a campaign with race baiting language. That is the truth."


From Andrew Sullivan's substack column about the Virginia results: a Youngkin campaign strategist offered this assessment to "journalist" Ryan Lizza.


The Democrats are radicalizing, and they're reacting to their base of their party and it is their base of the base. And because they live on Twitter and on the lightly watched cable news shows at night, they're believing their own press releases and they're putting themselves in their own bunker. And they will not be able to get out of it.

+100.

So what will the Democrats do? Double down or moderate?

They'll double down.

I don't just say this because they are crazy. I don't just say this because all of the energy -- and all of the money -- in the party is with the lunatic left.

I don't just say it because the base of the base -- the well-educated but not-very-smart white progressives who want vengeance against a world that doesn't recognize their dubious genius, the aging Chardonnay Antifa well-heeled suburban Karen Extremists, the teachers union leftists, the Deep State bureaucrats, the minority grievance extremists/racial separatists, the trans extremists -- own the party now.

I don't just say it because their most important constituency of all -- the leftwing media -- is thoroughly mentally ill and full of hatred and grievance.

All those things are 100% true.

But more than that, it has been the pattern for a long, long time that no matter how low a president's poll numbers drop, a president clings to his base and makes very few if any concessions to the middle. Trump didn't really make any shifts to the middle or the left. He did pursue criminal justice "reform" -- but that wasn't a concession, he planned that from the start.

Obama governed as if he was President of Twitter.

Bush was always a moderate RINO, though we didn't really appreciate that at the time, but didn't make any major concessions to the left, especially not on the issue that was actually dragging him down, the war in Iraq. He did propose and pass Medicaid prescription drug coverage, but that didn't seem like it was in reaction to falling popularity. He wasn't really losing popularity too much in 2004. That just seemed like more Rovian scheming.

Clinton stuck mostly with his leftwing base. He did make some moves intended to placate the moderates, but it was all symbolic stuff like supporting "school uniforms" in state schools, which the president has no power over. So he papered over his very liberal policy agenda with meaningless gestures to the cultural center like that.

So, no, neither Biden nor the Democrats will learn anything from this.

The rule of politics now is Dance With the One That Brought Ya.

The only thing that can change this is a truly epochal wipeout.

Which I certainly hope we deliver unto them.

I don't want to support the GOP, but I sure don't want to reward the socialist fascists.

Update: Someone laughed at me saying "dance with the one that brought ya" in connection with the GOP, which does nothing but spit in our faces.

True-- and that was dumb to say.

Re-conforming my words to fit actual reality, I'd say the GOP sticks with what they take to be their base, which is Suburban Respectability-Craving Well-to-Dos and Large Corporate Interests. Those they stick with through thick-and-thin.

They'll even deliberately throw presidential elections to appease them.

I'd say it's less time for a third party, and more time for a new second party. A true third party (at least one that we would support) would spend 40 years in the desert, during which time the Left would finish everything they have planned. A better strategy is to destroy the Republican party completely, and replace it. A lot of them would go Dem at first, a few would stick around. At least you'd have newly-drawn battle lines and a clean slate to start from. I sometimes think this is what Trump had in mind, but couldn't pull it off.

125 If you were controlling the elections, and all voting was a meaningless fraud, you wouldn't allow blowouts for your side. And on occasion, you would let pussy sellouts on the other side win too. But in every case, you would never let a "vote" end up outside of the 40 - 60 percent range. They would all be 45% 53% with a made-up independent to take the remainder 2%. You would never want there to be a consensus for or against anything. You would want voting and its impact to be completely ephemeral to everyone, because it would be. In fact, the more people that interpret the results correctly, that voting is a lie, and drop out the better it works for you.

That would be a hell of a thing. I'm not saying that means you shouldn't vote. But this system, left alone, cannot function outside trust. And we are outside trust. Not voting cannot fix the system, and just voting cannot fix the system. Perhaps being involved to a much greater degree than the public ever has in the details and monitoring of voting and electioneering can affect a change. That would require a public that believes that a successful society is arrived at through honesty, not just cheering the team the media picked.

151 But more than that, it has been the pattern for a long, long time that no matter how low a president's poll numbers drop, a president clings to his base and makes very few if any concessions to the middle. Trump didn't really make any shifts to the middle or the left. He did pursue criminal justice "reform" -- but that wasn't a concession, he planned that from the start.

++++

I disagree with you as far as GOP presidents go. They *always* make concessions to the middle. Trump was the exception. But, I think even he would have been willing to make at least some deals, if the Dems hadn't gone with full out war against him. Schumer in particular was in a great position to win concessions with Trump and a McConnell led GOP in the Senate. But, the left went with the strategy of "Trump isn't normal", so 100% war.

Posted by: Romeo13 at November 08, 2021 07:02 PM


My understanding is (for example) you win $300,000. The lawyer takes his 1/3rd so you net $200,000. But you owe taxes on the full $300,000.

There may be some instances where this could differ. Perhaps if it's a payout from an insurance company, but I'm not sure.

192 In general, are legal settlements considered income? Do you have to pay income tax on them? Or are they considered a reimbursement or something like that?
Posted by: Warai-otoko

Naturally, it's not abundantly clear. From the IRS website -

The general rule of taxability for amounts received from settlement of lawsuits and other legal remedies is Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 61 that states all income is taxable from whatever source derived, unless exempted by another section of the code. IRC Section 104 provides an exclusion from taxable income with respect to lawsuits, settlements and awards. However, the facts and circumstances surrounding each settlement payment must be considered to determine the purpose for which the money was received because not all amounts received from a settlement are exempt from taxes. The key question to ask is: "What was the settlement (and its corresponding payments) intended to replace?"

Shit... give them 1 million and they could live like KINGS back home... at least until the Cartel steals it.
Posted by: Romeo13


The Cartels/coyotes get the money. It's a kickback to them, and then the money comes back to the Democruds as payoff money to keep the border open.
It's the same scam as the foreign aid money going to Ukraine, and coming to Democruds back through people like Hunter Biden.
I would wager that the Democruds have been getting money from the Cartels for years. And probably some Rethuglicans have been getting some of that Cartel payoff money too.

344 My understanding is (for example) you win $300,000. The lawyer takes his 1/3rd so you net $200,000. But you owe taxes on the full $300,000.

There may be some instances where this could differ. Perhaps if it's a payout from an insurance company, but I'm not sure.

Posted by: Said No One


It depends on what the settlement is compensating for. If it is lost income or something else that is normally taxed, then it's taxed. Pain and suffering isn't taxable.

And yes, you're taxed on the whole amount received, not the amount less attorney fees.

They're in their endgame alright - but they got too eager, too full of themselves, and they didn't wait until they actually got everything under control before they jumped into what they really wanted to do.

That's why I'm suddenly feeling so optimistic these days - I knew, after they had taken over, that we had no chance to come back UNTIL they started to make some huge mistakes. And suddenly, they're making them! Everywhere, every day. They can't keep from doing it.

HER base though? not the middle at all...her base is a verrry radical left departure from ANYONE else's politics, in any other district, region even within NY. That is why her "Squad" is only 6, even the "Progressive Caucus" is only 40, and she is wayyy to the left of where they had been before she was "Selected" by the machine to replace the guy she replaced, #3 in House leadership, Chair of the Democratic Caucus, Chairman of the local Dem Party...that had mentioned he might challenge Pelosi for the Chair/Gavel.

371 Clinton stuck mostly with his leftwing base. He did make some moves intended to placate the moderates, but it was all symbolic stuff like supporting "school uniforms" in state schools, which the president has no power over. So he papered over his very liberal policy agenda with meaningless gestures to the cultural center like that.


After the Great Political Upchuck of 1994, Bill Clinton realized that the Far Left Way wasn't going to work. He sacked the most leftist of his advisers (does anybody remember the radical Ms. Achtenberg, Mr. Cisneros, Ms. Elders, Mr. Reich, Ms. Shalala? All of whom had to leave under clouds of scandal and disgust) and Billy Jeff put in pragmatic types as replacements. In the end, although loathsome to many Conservatives on a personal level, Billy Jeff did a couple of downright Conservative acts: (1) welfare curtailment and reform, and (2) cutting the capital gains tax rates in half, from 28/20% short/long to 15/10%, fueling the investment boom of the mid to late 1990s.

But Bill Clinton was not all about the Leftist Marxism. Bill Clinton was all about - Bill Clinton.

374 Please don't flatter the left by calling them "neoliberals." That is a term used by Europeans to identify pro-free market politicians. Liberal, of course, had a long illustrious career as a descriptor for those who championed individual freedom, until the left coopted the term sometime in the '50s. The left's utter abandonment of even the pretense of supporting individual rights such as freedom of speech means they should forfeit the right ever to use the term liberal. Needless to say, they certainly do not support free markets either, so neoliberal is a total non sequitur for them.

Why not call them fascists? Communist has lost its sting, and they are far more akin to true fascism, which in its purist form is an evil union between big corporations and government to dominate society. That describes their current trajectory best. And it has the added deliciousness of getting under their skin.
