Huey Long Seen As A Threat To FDR

FDR was an establishment Democrat.

We had to terrify the political establishment and build unusual coalitions in the Great Depression to get anything done. The elite strategy is to divide and conquer the people by making them terrified of each other. When Huey Long was assassinated in 1935, the Share Our Wealth Society he built had 7.5 million members and 27,000 clubs spread around the country. He didn’t have social media.

If Huey Long were alive today, there is no doubt that 2024 would be his year. He would build his own media and small dollar donor network and leapfrog the oligarchy into the White House. Bernie Sanders was too chickenshit and didn’t have the balls to run on checks and the wealth cap in the 2020 Democratic primaries. Bernie went woke and went broke and became a pushover trying to appeal to Elizabeth Warren’s White upper middle class professionals.

Note: Virtually every popular idea that is pushed by “progressives” and which still haven’t been realized because of their toxic culture war priorities was proposed by Huey Long.

  1. Upton Sinclair was much more of a concern to FDR than Huey Long. Sinclair was a socialist running as a Democrat in California.

    • but Long was a country-wide threat. That’s why FDR

      had him killed. Assassinating populists was the in-thing during the mid-1930’s:

      FDR x’d Long, Hitler x’d Roehm and Strasser, Stalin x’d Kirov.

      • Where’s your evidence FDR was behind it and not just Weiss? In your mind FDR allowed Pearl Harbor, Eisenhower was a dupe for the commies as the JB Society claimed, Oswald was actually a patsy, Raul was behind MLK’s death and not Ray, and 9/11 was a government plot with Bush at the helm.

        Oh and brabantian, you misspelled your name. It should be barbantian.

  2. Hunter;

    Don’t forget, February is Black History Month, a whole month to celebrate the many and varied contributions of some of the colored folk. If Black History Month lasted 10 minutes that would be 10 minutes too long.

  3. There’s some interesting things about cigars, such as Huey Long smoked with great satisfaction, as seen in several of Hunter’s photos

    Tobacco in general has gotten a bad rap, but they did a huuuge cancer study in the 90s on cigars … and they found that people whose only smoking was 1 or 2 cigars a day, had essentially ZERO negative health effects … versus the huge negatives for 25% or so of cigarette smokers

    Major difference is that premium cigars are all-natural, no paper or chemicals etc, and you don’t inhale into the lungs

    (USA National Cancer Institute Monograph 9, ‘Cigars – Health Effects & Trends’, 1998)

    In South America there are indigenous native healers, ‘tabaqueros’, who use tobacco in healing illnesses – they say that tobacco is indeed only meant for the head, not for the lungs and chest, and should not be burned with artificial substances, the paper, chemicals etc in cigarettes

    The deeply relaxing spiritual pleasure of the occasional cigar, is apparently one of those facts hidden by the powers that be, seeking to deprive us

    What else can you get for $5-$10 that is hand-made and gives you most of an hour of meditative, intellect-supporting enjoyment?

    For those unfamiliar, and would like to try the Huey Long experience:

    Pick one medium thick, about 12-16mm, just over half-inch diametre, a ‘corona’ or ‘panetela’, not the very fat ‘robusto’ nor a very thin (harsh) ‘cigarillo’ … have a good meal beforehand … you may need to poke a half-diametre hole in the smoking end, don’t cut off the whole width … smoke briefly in mouth only, exhale right away, you only ‘taste’ the smoke … one puff about every 30 seconds or so … every 5 minutes, blow-exhale through the cigar to freshen it … don’t smoke the last third, it can get harsh then

    Weird about the USA ‘land of freedom’ ha ha
    1920-33 alcohol prohibited
    1933-74 owning gold prohibited
    1962-today selling Cuban cigars prohibited

    JFK delayed the Cuban cigar embargo one day, so his aide could go around to cigar stores and buy up more than 1000 sticks of JFK’s favourite Cuban Herman Upmanns

    Cuban tobacco is distinctive, but Cuba’s quality control is spotty, there are plenty of other good cigars out there, would not spend a lot on a Cuban … for luxe, instead try an always-reliable Davidoff ($10+) like rich dudes

  4. We sure need his political and economic ideas in 2021. That’s especially true with Automation going on that will soon put 40% plus out of Work. It will be all the more reason why his ideas are needed for the Working Class and those who just might stay at home in the future..Homeschooling…and so on. Deo Vindice !

  5. Note the mocking, authoritative tone of that hack narrator in the Long bio clip: amazing the people can be led by such (((cheap tricks))), but they can.
