This is what Brad as been defending on OD. I don’t know what’s wrong with that guy. He was going on and on about Huey Long. Now that Orange is gone, he’s been saying we need to pander to Reps that oppose things like the Amazon union… ????— ?? 5% Vetreyal 5% ?? (@Vetreyal1) April 15, 2021

Honestly i’m starting to question whether any of these people are literate. At this point you really have to wonder. Brad spent four years going after crap like Anglin and Fuentes and now he’s basically an AmNat…
A fake ass one but yeah even that pos said something against this. Even AmNats are saying f the GOP. I guess the main prob here is that he’s still a Southern Nationalist, and SN’s will always have a tendency to circle back around to the GOP, it’s in their nature.— ?? 5% Vetreyal 5% ??

I shouldn’t respond to this.
I’ve already written at length about the subject. I will bite though.
1. First, I share content from Rising on this website several times a week, which makes this claim particularly bizarre. I also routinely share content from Jimmy Dore and even Jacobin and The Daily Poster. Obviously, I don’t agree with conservative or libertarian free market economics.
2. Second, I supported the attempt by Amazon workers to form a union in Bessemer, made fun of Marco Rubio’s token endorsement of the effort and I criticize oligarchs like Jeff Bezos all the time on this website. I’ve even been trying to revive interest in Huey Long’s Share Our Wealth platform.
3. Third, it is great that Donald Trump is gone because he isn’t around to divide and demoralize us anymore. No one has to defend his inept administration anymore. We’re able to move forward again now. I’ve been extremely critical of the Joe Biden presidency, but I was also sharply critical of the George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump presidencies. Why wouldn’t I criticize Joe Biden?
4. Fourth, the American Nationalists are paleocons who are obsessed with optics who rode the Trump Train until the end when it crashed and burned at the Capitol Siege. In contrast, I have always been a populist in the original sense of the term. We disagree on Donald Trump and economics and “optics” and all sorts of things. This website is focused on political punditry and social criticism, not on “optics.”
5. Fifth, I am focused on articulating my personal views on specific policy issues, not on contrarianism or countersignaling the GOP. I have the same views on immigration, trade, foreign policy, political correctness, guns, civil liberties, abortion, censorship, taxation, regulation, monopolies, infrastructure, heritage preservation, cultural degeneration and so on that I have always had on this website. I write about my views on these subjects. I’ve always been a social conservative and economic populist.
6. Sixth, I have always been an Independent voter. I’m not in any rush to join or support or endorse or much less vote for the Republican Party. I’m extremely skeptical of the Republican Party. This doesn’t mean, however, that I support Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. It has become the anti-White party. Most of us are politically homeless and don’t identify with either of these parties.
7. Seventh, I spent a great deal of time over the past several years thinking about the flaws of our previous efforts and what a more serious and mature movement would look like. White Populism is the solution that I came up with. I scrapped those old models and created a new one. I wanted a version of nationalism and populism that borrowed from Huey Long and Father Coughlin’s politics in the 1930s. Gerald L.K. Smith who was involved with the Share Our Wealth movement also created the America First movement.
8. Finally, there is some evidence that Republican voters have become more racially aware due to everything that has happened over the past year. It is not really surprising given that “racist” was redefined to mean “anyone who is White.” We saw the same thing happen during the Obama presidency. The most compelling argument that was made against reelecting Trump is that having Joe Biden as president would “accelerate” things. It would wake people up. Now that it has come true and we were proven right that Trump losing would radicalize millions of people, why would we spurn those people?
Note: The late stage Alt-Right was already heading in this direction. There was much more discussion of economics. The National Justice Party, for example, owes a lot to Father Coughlin and his National Union for Social Justice. Third Positionism is also similar to classic American populism.
