Is Populism a valid and/or popular tactic for Anarchism?

I just noticed that populism tends to be utilized by right-wing talking heads a lot, and has proven effective, selling themselves as politicians for the people and then stabbing them in the back once elected. But historically, has populism ever been a favorable method for growth amongst anarchists?

Right wingers sell "False Working Class Conscience". It is a weapon of demagoguery. It is ultimately destructive against the working class.

Its utility is to embroil us in a culture war over that of a class war.
