This is what authentic populism sounds like, unlike conservatism masquerading as populism pic.twitter.com/sUPDliUbWJ— Hunter Wallace (@MisterBlackPill) January 3, 2021
Economic fairness has been the core of American populism since the 1890s. It was precisely this element of Trump’s MAGA agenda that conservatives like Mitch McConnell refused to tolerate. They were happy to give him wins on pro-business judges and the corporate tax cut. They even embraced LGBTQ rights. $2,000 dollars for working class families though is where Mitch fought to the last ditch.
Note: In lieu of a modern candidate, we have launched a campaign to educate the public about Huey Long’s agenda, particularly his idea of a wealth cap to abolish the power of billionaires. We’re waiting for a candidate who isn’t going to take crazy stands on polarizing culture wars issues like “Defund the Police” and “Abolish ICE,” but who supports a modest redistribution of wealth. We want to support a candidate who is socially conservative and economically moderate like William Jennings Bryan or Huey Long.
