In the 19th century, ‘people’ and ‘popular’ were considered to be leftist words, titles, slogans.
By the 20th century, things got turned around. People’s parties were rightist rather than leftist: anti-internationalist/anti-capitalist/often anti-Semitic.
Populism moved from from Left to Right.
Frequent anti-Marxism among working classes in many parts of the world was a thorough refutation of Marx.
Populism and (true) conservatism incompatible. This is illustrated by a line from the Horst Wessel Lied which goes: “Comrades killed by the Red Front and by the Reactionaries”.
Don’t be fooled: The libertarians/country club conservatives/Ayn Rand freaks, et al, are Globalists and thus enemies of Populism/Nationalism. They are shills for the plutocrats & criminals who must be purged if America is going to survive.
