Democrats are allowing a “noisy wing of our party define the rest of us,” says James Carville.— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) July 14, 2021

Wokeness is spilling over into everything.
It is like a raging dumpster fire that has set the whole neighborhood ablaze. Everything from the vaccine distribution to small business loans to immigration policy to policing to the Pentagon is on fire.
“CARVILLE: Well, people, we saw in New York, people want candidates to address their lives. I mean, Biden did a little worse. But he did better with suburban women. He did better with veterans.
Not to belabor your point, we did lose traction with Black voters and Hispanic voters. And I think part of that is we got identified by the “Defund the Police” and the language police. And that’s not who Biden is. Biden didn’t even know what wokeness is, so you couldn’t explain it to him.
And I think that the Democratic Party, I’m very encouraged in what I saw in New York, I was very encouraged by the results in Virginia primary, very encouraged by what happened in Louisiana.
Look, there’s this whole noisy, Identity Left is 15 percent of the Democratic Party. Two-thirds of their party are these loony — agree with these loony insurrectionists, and this kind of stuff.
Yet, we pay such a terrible political price for a slightly more than fringe element of our party, where they don’t pay near the price for just totally goofy, not even on this planet part of their party. So, we just have to be more effective and more determined in our communications. …”
Yes, the Democrats will pay a terrible political price for it.
Guns and abortion used to be the deeply polarizing culture war issues. There are at least twenty or thirty new culture war battles right now. There is a cultural grievance for everyone now.
