Statement of the day; The definition of Populism

Origin: Spirits of the Past move

My favorite political writer, Jim Hightower, nails it in his latest newsletter when describing ‘REAL’ populists over ‘WANNABE’ populists like RUSH, DOBBS and Gingrich. In fact, cartoonist, Matt Wuerker does a toon in the lastest issue which he calls DOBBS a WASPulist. LMAO. I just call him a fucking racist. Anyway the statement;

First of all, populism is not a style, nor is it a synonym for “popular outrage.” It is a historically grounded political doctrine (and movement) that supports ordinary folks in their ongoing democratic fight against the moneyed

elites.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.
