Bernie Sanders’ plan to let felons and illegals vote would allow hardcore terrorists, including the mastermind behind 9/11, vote from prison. It’s scared a large number of people, both Democrat and Republican. but the person to really mention the fallacy of Bernie’s plan might surprise you. The point that terrorists would vote under Bernie’s plan was brought up by none other than ragin cajun James Carville on NBC. Carville said that the Democratic Party was losing it’s mind when it came to it’s candidates. He also hit Bernie Sanders for his plan to let people in prison, including terrorists, vote in elections. Carville said that the party choices for president made him “Scared to death” of the November 2020 election. Carville told viewers this week while on MSNBC first that the Democrats need to shape up. He then was interviewed by VOX where he doubled down on the warning.
And the more Carville talked, the more he sounds like he is considering Donald Trump.
“Eighteen percent of the population controls 52 Senate seats,” Carville said. “We’ve got to be a majoritarian party. The urban core is not gonna get it done. What we need is power! Do you understand? That’s what this is about.”
“Look, the turnout in the Iowa caucus was below what we expected, what we wanted. Trump’s approval rating is probably as high as it’s been. This is very bad. And now it appears the party can’t even count votes. What the hell am I supposed to think?” He told VOX.
Sean ling with VOX asked him what went wrong. He responded, “I don’t know. 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.”
When asked to give some examples of bad things that Democrats were doing, here’s what he said:
“We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party.
For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in the party has the sense to plaster a picture of him up there sucking up to the global elites, talking about cutting taxes for them while he’s talking about cutting Medicare back home. Jesus, this is so obvious and so easy and I don’t see any of the candidates taking advantage of it.
As for Trump’s reelection chances, Carville said if “anyone thinks they can’t win, they’re out of their damn minds.”
Many viewers who listened to Carville felt that he was almost trying to convince himself not to join the Republicans. As the Democratic party goes more left, many moderate Democrats have been leaving the party to join the blue collar ranks of the GOP.
Senator Bernie Sanders has repeatedly said that he’d give both those who are not citizens, and those who are in prison, the right to vote. That would even include those who were arrested from abroad for terrorism and brought to the US for incarceration.
