Skip to comments.Deval Patrick on his fellow Dems: 'I love that we are the party of the woke' (& still waking)

Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the "party of the woke."
Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday after officially launching his presidential campaign, the former Massachusetts governor was asked about the "vulnerability" of his involvement in Bain Capital, the investment firm that previously dogged Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign.
"Youre not running in a Republican primary, you are running in a Democratic primary," MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace told Patrick. "Your party has moved to the left."
"First of all, I love that the party has moved to the left. I love that we are the party of the woke," Patrick said. "I believe that we also have to be the party of the still waking, and I have always conducted my personal life and my business life and my life as a civil rights lawyer, my life as an advocate, my life as a mediator and as a governor that way. And, why? It's not because I'm trying to smooth over issues. I am interested in getting at root causes."

And I, love that we are the party of proper English.
My, my, what a panderer Deval is.
Getting at root causes of democrat psychosis is not a ticket to the White House.
What is he going to do to break that 1% level that he is at?
I've read that the lest vestige of "unwoke" in media is porn.
Interesting concept when you think about it.
Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the “party of the woke.”
The Wokeing Dead
I think he’s doing this in anticipation that Joe Biden will win and has to pick either a woman or black as VP.
Yeah these peoplerats have some crazy dreams.
And remember, the "woke" commerical has to have the black person who is smarter, more moral, and heroic.
Being taken with your own moral perfection and infallibility isn’t a Good Place, moron.
Given that the left NEVER looks for root causes, but immediately starts squealing about racism, sexism, and every other ism whenever there is a problem, that is an utterly bizarre statement.
He also acknowledged that capitalism "has a lot to answer for."
Yep, it does. Good living standards, high quality medical care, advanced technology, etc., are all the fault of capitalism.
Patrick said he was "a big, big fan of" Biden but noted that his "deep, deep, public empathy doesnt always come through in this campaign."
Oh, please. It comes through every time we see him fondling or nuzzling some unwilling female. And we've seen him do that a lot (but it's a conspiracy if we point it out).
If some dude ever puts his hands on me to stop me from flirting, he is going to “woke” up about 5 minutes after I tag his jaw.
P.S. I still have not purchased anything Gillette since that stupid commercial
Well at least mini me didn’t call the party of the wrong the party of the work...because no one would fall for that!
Likely to be a ‘front man’ for our ‘Shadow President’...
‘I love that we are the party of the woke’ (& still waking)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
De-wall Bat-trick is already waxing support for totalitarian wokeness.
Woke is a joke or a yolk?
I’d like to know the woke view of death.
Patrick = Bain cap.
Romney = Bain cap.
WOKE like they have commandeered the righteous moral high ground of what democracy should be and they are the light and the torch holders to get us all there. Excuse me while I vomit! Someone tell this dope that his buddy ruined it for blacks in the Whitehouse for some time
