They Aren’t Hiding It

What does the Right Wing really crave? According to the third-most popular radio host in the country, they have a craving for nationalism, and the only cure is a repeat of the mid 20th century.

The conservative radio host Michael Savage Sunday called for a third, "nationalist" American political party to challenge the Republican Party on the right of the political spectrum.
“We need a nationalist party in the United States of America,” said Savage on Aaron Klein's WABC radio show.

"You have the rudiments of a new party in this country called a Tea Party. They need to restructure their party. They need a charismatic leader, which they don’t have," he said. [...]

Savage is the third-most widely heard radio talker in the country, and a leading voice among conservatives seeking an alternative to the Beltway Republican Party.

I'm old enough to remember when they referred to President Obama as a "charismatic leader" in an accusatory manner, but they never accused him of being a nationalist. Instead they referred to him as a "socialist" which served as a sort of dog-whistle for "national socialist."

The former sounds good to an uninformed, prejudiced citizen, while the latter sounds more sinister. You know, because Europe is socialist and bad things happen there. Or something.

Of course we know that was all projection anyway, as is the right wing meme that says the National Socialist Party was "left wing."

    I wont attempt to argue anyone of your “intellectual” prowess let alone the people who post this bs, but every single statement on this site is so monolithically inaccurate its beyond laughable, why not work towards solutions grounded in reality rather than blaming the “other guy”, while claiming to be carrying out meaningful conversation while hiding behind you veil of “tolerance”.

    The American Nationalist Party. Because there’s not enough evil and batshit in the Republican party. Good one, not-really-Macho-Man Savage.

    “right wing meme that says the National Socialist Party was “left wing.””

    The Nazis were anything but left wing. ‘

    Modern Republicans are complete assholes, and this meme is a thinly veiled attempt to distance themselves from fascism, a thing they can not do because it is what they are–fascists.

    So we need another political party of made up of oligarchs with their inherited and off-shored wealth leading around a screeching minority of hate-filled, gun toting, white people who are willing to continue to sell off their own self-interest and prosperity as long as it means that the people they fear are legislatively marginalized below them?

    Brondo…no wait…cowbell!
    We can only hope..Savage..I mean that influential. They have already run off a number of moderates, splitting the party and diluting the crazy / stupid voting block may be just the ticket to run that last mile in to the permanent obscurity they so richly deserve.
