“We hate demagogues. Stop Trump. Down with demagogues. Fell the Bern!!!”

Why don’t we look at what a demagogue is?

dem·a·gogue
ˈdeməˌɡäɡ/
noun
a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
synonyms: rabble-rouser, agitator, political agitator, soapbox orator, firebrand, fomenter, provocateur

(in ancient Greece and Rome) a leader or orator who espoused the cause of the common people.

That’s Trump, right?

It’s actually also Bernie Sanders. Plug him into that definition – you may be surprised that you’ve been following a demagogue.

The very thing you want to stop.

Cheers

😉
