Populism is Nationalism

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.
