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.
