|TAKE IT BACK FROM WHO?|
While the analysis is overtly about the Cold War period of USA history, I think the lessons are more than applicable to populist movements of a racial nature today, and you and I know they exist. There are numerous white supremacist populist groups out there and there is the Tea Party. The Tea Party is ostensibly not racist, but, well, I simply don't buy that the stream of racist populism doesn't run right on into and through the Tea Party.
Speaking of populism. It is my belief that is what the Occupy Movement is also. The Occupy movement is not a racial form of populism, although it has been subject to some infiltration by racial populists in the past.
Anyway, below we have a very informative piece taken from Lenin's Tomb, but via People of Color Organize.
