.@TuckerCarlson suggested forming a new “Church Committee.” @GOPLeader is making this happen in the House rules package. I’ll serve on it, and we will go wherever the evidence leads us. pic.twitter.com/86gGvlGD5V— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) January 7, 2023

There is no such thing as the “Populist Left.”
Two years ago, I was open to the idea that we shared some common ground with the “Populist Left” on issues like civil liberties, trade policy, social democracy and foreign policy, but over the last year I have been disabused of that notion. There is no difference between shitlibs and those people.
“Since the mid-2010s, the rise of the populist left and the populist right has shaken up the American political spectrum. Both movements have maneuvered to pressure and persuade the political establishment to adopt their objectives. But in recent years something unusual has been happening. We’re seeing the formation of a pipeline that circumvents the center altogether — and directly connects left-wing to right-wing populism.
A group of journalists and media personalities who once were at home on the far left has formed a niche but influential political subculture that encourages leftists to abandon leftism for the populist right. Its most recognizable faces are former icons of leftist discourse who have millions of diehard fans: Glenn Greenwald, a co-founder of The Intercept, known as one of the most powerful critics of the “war on terror” in the Bush era. Matt Taibbi, a former Rolling Stone writer, who was famous for excoriating defenders of neoliberalism and likening Goldman Sachs to a “great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.” Tulsi Gabbard, formerly a Democratic House member and 2020 presidential candidate, was aligned with the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. …”
What is the “Populist Left”?
Every single Democrat in Congress, especially House Progressives, have loudly supported the war in Ukraine. They have voted to spend over $100 billion dollars in less than 12 months to entangle us in a war with Russia which is worse than Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan combined. 100% of the opposition to the war in Ukraine has come from the Populist Right. The Squad doesn’t even criticize the war. Bernie Sanders has voted for every bill to fuel the war and has completely surrendered to Joe Biden.
Behold the spectacle of the Left whining about “fascism” while uncritically celebrating a parade of FBI agents and former CIA directors on CNN and MSNBC. They celebrated the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. They are eagerly awaiting the DOJ to indict Trump. They hate Matt Taibbi for his work on the Twitter Files which exposed how the Deep State and Big Tech have coordinated censorship of the internet which is the textbook definition of fascism. Meanwhile, it is House Republicans who are setting up a new Church Committee to investigate abuses of government power by the FBI and the CIA. “Fascism” is now wanting increased oversight or the abolition of powerful government agencies like the FBI while “antifascism” is doxing powerless citizens with dissident views and getting them fired from their jobs. The Populist Left also supported forced vaccinations and Justin Trudeau’s crackdown on the Canadian truckers.
Increasingly, the “Populist Left” seems to be people who have degenerate cultural views which they prioritize over any effort to advance peace or social democracy. The Squad capitulated on #ForceTheVote. The Squad capitulated on Ukraine. The Squad now attacks the Populist Right for successfully using #ForceTheVote to win concessions from their leadership on subjects like going after the FBI.
