The point is "They see themselves as" instead "they are the party of"

Do you pay your electricity at wholesale prices or at end user prices?

Sure, it is a conspiracy of the evvvvilll capitalists (if you want, but
it is not recommended, you can add Jews, masons, rettilians, Nibiru
between evil and capitalists).

What is reactionary for some is progressive for others.

In my opinion, forcing people to live in dark homes, without electricity
and heating, without the ability to store food or cook is reactionary.

But surely the reactionaries will expose the luminous and progressive
future of their policies and how these short term problems they never
endure (or will solve) are absolutely not important (for them).
