With socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) increasingly looking like the prohibitive favorite to take the Democratic nomination, Woods and Cruz have weighed in recently on Sanders and what his rise means about the direction of the Democratic Party, and the two conservative voices have found a lot of common ground.
In response to former Democratic candidate Andrew Yang telling CNN, as Sanders was cruising to victory in Nevada over the weekend, that the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the working class, Cruz agreed and expanded on Yang’s premise.
“Yang is right: This is the most fundamental political shift of the past decade,” Cruz tweeted. “The Democratic Party has abandoned the working class, has abandoned union members, and the GOP has become the blue-collar party of jobs.”
Woods, in turn, noticed Cruz’s tweet, likewise agreed with the premise, and offered his own, less senatorial and a little more dramatized take on the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party has been hijacked by screeching socialists, ranting “intersectionalists,” whatever they hell they are, and masked Antifa street thugs. Republicans stand for jobs, borders, and national security. The Democratic Party is a vampirized husk, gone forever. https://t.co/Q3aqHGRAKM— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) February 23, 2020
Let's hope that such arguments can prevail with American voters in November, the fate of the Republic may very well depend on it.
What’s critical to remember about democracy is that stupid people also get to vote. What’s dangerous about that is that stupid people feel comfortable when they vote for other stupid people. It’s a vicious circle. pic.twitter.com/4HgWYFUV3G— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) February 23, 2020
