How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin. – President Ronald Reagan

Democratic strategist James Carville has said that he agrees with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ assessment of him as a “political hack,” adding that he’d rather be a hack than a “communist” like the senator from Vermont.
Carville’s comments were the latest salvo in a feud that began over the weekend when he attacked Sanders’ policies and said he was “scared to death” of his success in Iowa’s Democratic caucuses. Sanders, I-Vt., responded by telling CNN: “Look, James, in all due respect, is a political hack who said very terrible things when he was working for Clinton against Barack Obama.”
Vanity Fair contributor Peter Hamby tweeted Thursday that he had spoken on the phone with Carville, who told him: “Last night on CNN, Bernie called me a political hack. That’s exactly who the f–k I am! I am a political hack!
“I am not an ideologue,” Carville reportedly added. “I am not a purist. He thinks it’s a pejorative. I kinda like it! At least I’m not a communist!”
In an interview with Vox published last week, Carville unleashed a scathing critique of his party.
“We just had an election in 2018. We did great. We talked about everything we needed to talk about and we won. And now it’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here.”
Carville added that he considered himself a “liberal” rather than a centrist — but Democrats had gone too far to the left even for him.
“They’ve tacked off the damn radar screen,” he said, before taking another shot at Sanders for saying that he wanted to expand voting rights for people like convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Sanders, Carville suggested, would be ineffective as president and wasn’t representative of the Democratic Party.
“[H]ere’s what I do know: Sanders might get 280 electoral votes and win the presidency and maybe we keep the House,” Carville said. “But there’s no chance in hell we’ll ever win the Senate with Sanders at the top of the party defining it for the public … So long as [Mitch] McConnell runs the Senate, it’s game over. There’s no chance we’ll change the courts and nothing will happen, and he’ll just be sitting up there screaming in the microphone about the revolution.”
Communist? Yep. I mean, after all, Bernie does have contacts in Moscow.
According to the Liberal Website TheWeek.com, in an article posted on June 19, 2015, in which they brought up Bernie’s 1988 honeymoon with his wife Jane in the former Soviet Union…
The honeymoon doubled as a diplomatic trip that Sanders made to the city of Yaroslavl, 160 miles northwest of Moscow, when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. According to audio that survived the trip:After receiving a rundown of central planning, Soviet-style, from Yaroslavl’s mayor, Alexander Riabkov, Sanders notes how the quality of both housing and healthcare in America appeared to be “significantly better” than in the communist state. “However,” he added, “the cost of both services is much, much, higher in the United States.” [The Guardian]
Another highlight of Sanders’ mayoralty was the ode to socialism that was written for him by poet Allen Ginsberg.
Entitled Burlington Snow, it begins with lines about “Socialist snow on the streets” and “Socialist kids sucking socialist lollipops” and ends: “Isn’t this poem socialist? It doesn’t belong to me anymore.” [The Guardian]
Then, there is this little tidbit that was reported by Fox News around the time that Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted those 13 Russians.
A bombshell Feb. 16 indictment filed against 13 Russian nationals in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe bolstered those allegations, in stunning detail — but also said the Russians sought to help Sanders.
Russian nationals, the indictment said, “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.”
It is funny how no one has brought that up, huh?
Carville already knows that the Democrats are going to lose the 2020 Presidential Election, even if that ol’ Commie is not their Presidential Candidate.
The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.
Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.
And, average Americans are loving it.
They have learned nothing at all since Hillary “The Chosen One” lost the 2016 President Election..
For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.
The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.
Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.
However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.
Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…
- Americans are “jingoistic”.
- America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
- The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
- Perversion is perfectly normal.
- They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.
There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.
Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.
Unless they can find their way back to reality, their political party is destined to go the way of the Whigs.
Considering their fondness for relative morality, situational ethics, and purposeful obtuseness, perhaps they should keep traveling the path that they are presently on…attempting to find something…ANYTHING to impeach President Trump on AGAIN.
Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….
And, the Trump Derangement Syndrome running wild among the Democrats in Pelosi-led House of Representatives is going to do nothing but accelerate the Dem’s downward descent into oblivion.
Pass the salt and butter, please.
I already have my popcorn ready.
