Following the stunning election losses on Tuesday former Clinton strategist James Carville blamed “stupid wokeness” was the cause of the losses for the Democrat-Marxists in Virginia and elsewhere.
Democrat thought leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was outraged at the suggestion and attacked Carville for referencing terms used by seniors and FOX News viewers.
AOC has no problem slamming educated, older Americans who disagree with her Marxist nonsense. So woke of her.
And before people disingenuously complain “woke” is denigrating to older people, it’s actually pundits like Carville using terms like “woke” to insult voters under 45 that’s denigrating.
Don’t wonder why youth turnout falls when Dems talk about them like this. We need everyone.

The Daily Mail reported:
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has hit back at Clinton strategist James Carville for suggesting ‘stupid wokeness’ caused the wave of crushing Democrat defeats on Tuesday night.
‘There are limits to trying to mobilize a campaign with a 100% moderate strategy without mobilizing the base. (I) said nothing abt “wokeness” which is a term almost exclusively used by older people these days btw,’ The Squad Member wrote on Twitter on Friday.
‘The average audience for people seriously using the word “woke” in a 2021 political discussion are James Carville and Fox News pundits. So that should tell you all you need to know,’ she added.
On Wednesday, veteran Democrat Carville tore into ‘stupid wokeness’ as the root of Terry McAuliffe’s defeat in the Virginia governor’s race and said some members need to go to ‘woke detox’.
AOC blamed moderate Democrats for the stinging loses in the Virginia governor race and the tight gubernatorial election in New Jersey.
She said the centrist did not handle Republicans’ ‘race baiting’ and acted like middle schoolers with their fighting over President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
‘Historically moderate Democrats have believed the best way to respond to race baiting by the right is to say little/nothing,’ Ocasio-Cortez wrote in an Instagram stories Q&A. ‘We see how that demoralizes the base you’re supposed to protect and turn out while also ceeding white swing voters to the right w/ inadequate responses or silence.’
