The mainstream media has referred to Bannon as a conservative, but he doesn’t style himself as a conservative, Levin said. Rather, he uses the term “nationalist populist.”
But what does that mean exactly? Mark Levin explains.
“Populism was the precursor to progressivism,” Levin said, recounting American history. The populism of the People’s party was “devoured by the Fabian socialists we call progressives, because they overlapped in terms of their philosophy: an autocratic view of government.”
“That’s why you rarely hear [Trump’s] campaign talk about the Constitution, let alone the Declaration of Independence,” Levin said.
