Veteran political strategist James Carville is very frustrated about the Democrats’ increasingly bleak political fortunes as well as a failure by the base to rally around deeply unpopular President Joe Biden, and in a candid moment, suggested that the party isn’t instilling enough fear to accomplish its objectives.
This week, Carville appeared on MSNBC where he discussed Dem disunity that could result in the end of one-party rule in Washington, D.C., after a mere two years as backlash builds against their aggressive “woke” agenda and the catastrophic results of Biden’s far-left policies that have brought record gas prices and crushing inflation to the nation.
During his conversation with host Ari Melber on Tuesday’s edition of “The Beat,” the “Ragin Cajun” bemoaned the lack of an intimidating factor in his party’s style of governance.
“I was in Georgia last night campaigning and said if you watched the way they treated now Justice Jackson, if you look at that, if you look at what the Supreme Court is really getting ready to do, if that don’t motivate you, I don’t know what does,” Carville said, stoking fear that the nation’s highest court will soon rule against leftist priorities, possibly referring to Roe v. Wade.
“And the problem that Democrats have, Ari, is no one fears us,” he exclaimed. “They look and they say they’re not gonna do anything about it cause they just gonna squabble with each other so the Supreme Court does what it wants to, these state legislatures, they pass any restricted voting law they want because they have learned over a period of time it doesn’t matter.”
“They’re weak, and all they’re gonna do is talk bad about each other,” Carville said. “You can’t govern without fear.”
Carville remains a major voice in Democrat Party politics three decades after he became famous for engineering Bill Clinton’s shocking 1992 upset of George H.W. Bush as well as the man who coined the famous “it’s the economy stupid” slogan that has been credited for putting Slick Willie into the White House.
Twitter users reacted to Carville after he let the cat out of the bag about such intimidation tactics and the use of fear as a political tool.
Dem just said it out loud … they’re fear mongers. They scare people into voting for them. Bastards.

Carville has it exactly backwards.The Dem Party no longer has compelling ideas to help e.g., Blacks, Hispanics & other minorities, in addition to their former base, blue-collar workers.The only tool they retain is FEAR, e.g., to be called racist or to be doxxed for opposing them.

Here comes the fear mongering. Sorry not interested this election cycle. Dems should have thought about siding with everyday Americans rather than their corporate predatory lending donors. @TheDemCoalition @POTUS @RuhleOnMSNBC @JamesCarville

The democratic party is just like the communist party. They want to rule us through fear and intimidation. They are crazy….

While Carville seemed to be suggesting tactics that strike terror into the hearts of their adversaries, many Democrats are already playing the fear card to motivate their demoralized base, including socialist diva Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who tried to scare attendees at a recent town hall in her New York City congressional district that the January 6, 2021 “insurrection” was only a “trial run” and “democracy” is in peril if Republicans take back the House in November.

The imminent “death of democracy” if Democrats are ousted from power has already been in heavy rotation with their shills in the media who have been hammering the talking points for weeks but the constant fearmongering has lost its edge with many who have tuned out as the economic woes from Biden’s disastrous regime have transcended party lines, battering all Americans who are looking for competent governance and not the fear that Carville is calling for.
What Democrats really fear is their extinction as a viable political entity, a distinct possibility for a party whose icons of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy have had their ideals replaced by vicious, power-hungry authoritarians who have complete disdain for American principles.
