And they pander to a conceited but undereducated audience.
Even in serious white nationalist circles -- people one might imagine to be the natural audience for these performers -- there's a recognition that they're bought-and-paid-for stooges of the status quo. They have no real way forward to propose.
Wow, so that's what advocating the principles on which the US was founded means.
Not exactly the "status quo" is it?
