Populism

Populist political movements in America tend to develop and operate outside of the left/right partisan political paradigm (that wealthy elites  to maintain control over politics, government and society). Modern day populism promotes liberty, which pose a threat to oligarchs, plutocracy and elitist control. Whenever populist movements crop up, the money powers in this country co-opt them, then demonize them through the establishment’s mainstream media propaganda machine to neutralize them (e.g. what the Republican Party has done to the Tea Party Movement). Right now, our federal government is trying to stifle free-speech and the right to protest and dissent to keep populism in check so that the elites do not lose their grip on us!
