    •  As I said (0+ / 0-)

      the term used to have a different connotation in America.

      George Wallace was also a populist and so was Huey Long. The Tea Party is a populist movement. In Europe, populism is the domain of the radical right. In Africa, it is the domain of the radical left.

      I understand the way the majority on this thread view it. Having lived in a heavily populist democracy for the last 15 years, I view it very differently.
