“We hate demagogues. Stop Trump. Down with demagogues. Fell the Bern!!!”
Why don’t we look at what a demagogue is?
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.
