What are you talking about? Where are those mythical older/wiser men who achieved many things? Am I missing something here? None of the prominent wignats have achieved anything. Except for hours and hours of podcasts and their internet mental masturbation they achieved big fat 0 when it comes to actual politics. So at best, they're at the same level as America First people who have been active for what, 2 or 3 years?
If being wise comes down to stating "This won't work!", then call me super wise because I also don't believe in societal changes via political means. Not via democratic means at least. So your wise men's advice that building your own solutions is the way forward is also super naive, sorry.
We can skip their many books on the subjects that will be handed down for generations and their global connections (even if American First some how magically succeeded, the globalists would just bring in the Chinese army to crush them like bugs), we can compare straight up the last few months.
AFPAC - Israel First speeches with BBC doxxing members.
NJP - Actual American First speeches vetted and safe from the media
AFPAC - Now fighting with their hero Trump's own boys about who is a higher authority, God and the Bible or Trump.
Wignats - Just sitting back saying "told you so".
AFPAC - People duped by hero Trump now facing 20 years in prison and Trump doesn't even mention them.
Wignats - Stay away from the capitol, this is a trap.
It is really no comparison and that takes away the decades of books, interviews, and ideologies they built up.
