As Richard Hofstadter, in The Paranoid Style in American Politics, and Theodor Adorno, in The Authoritarian Personality, have both taught us, this kind of American 'populism' has always been tainted by its kinship with racism and superstition, and by its servility to the very power it ostensibly rails against."

It was also was after the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Oliver North, Gordon Liddy, Rush Limbaugh, Charles Lindbergh... Mike Flynn, Steve Bannon, etc. close
