If heard the “1%” chitchat before, you have….

Huey Long – an oratorical genius – back in 1930 proclaimed the Socialists ideas that are being repeated on Wall Street today.

 

FDR took many of Long’s “ideas” and turned them into the New Deal.

 

Listen carefully to Long and his speech – and see how simple the message and how easy the message resonates with the emotions of People – and in direct contradiction to human rights and reason.

 

There are many, many more Huey Long’s alive out there today (Hi, Charlie!) — and free men better start getting their message tuned to defeat them, otherwise the People will face a very long age of Endarkenment.

  1. Black Flag® Says:

    “To Roosevelt, however, Huey was “one of the two most dangerous men in America.” (The other was Gen. Douglas MacArthur.)

    Roosevelt sought to undercut Huey’s clout by putting Huey’s enemies in charge of federal spending and patronage in Louisiana.

    He ordered unproductive investigations by the Internal Revenue Service and the FBI into Huey’s finances and other dealings.

    Huey was also the subject of the first nationwide political poll, used by the Roosevelt campaign to assess how great a threat a Long candidacy would be to the President’s re-election.
    Follow Long!

    FDR also moved to deflate Long’s appeal by incorporating some of Huey’s ideas as part of the Second New Deal, a more liberal version of his Great Depression reforms.

    For example, the Social Security system reflected Huey’s proposal for old-age pensions, the Works Progress Administration mirrored public works programs begun by Long in Louisiana, and the National Youth Administration reflected his student financial aid proposal. “

    They’ve got a set of Republican waiters on one side and a set of Democratic waiters on the other side, but no matter which set of waiters brings you the dish, the legislative grub is all prepared in the same Wall Street kitchen.”
    — Huey Long

    ……..

    Doesn’t that sound like Charlie? …. and they are both right.
