A Brief History of The Faux "Right"
#2
I always wince when this wrecking crew of alt-right ideologues are called "populists." Used for them, the word means nothing more than someone who appeals to the less-educated rabble. The actual, real populist means someone who extols and advocates for the interests of the people against the elite wealthy and powerful bosses. That usually does mean on the left, like James B. Weaver and William Jennings Bryan, or today, Bernie Sanders. Donald Trump and his ilk are of, by and for the elite, and ONLY the elite.
