Yes, Trump is a demagogue

DEMAGOGUE- a political leader who seeks support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than using rational argument.

DEMAGOGUERY- political activity or practices that seek support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than using rational argument.

There have been many demagogues throughout history and they all follow a similar pattern. Rather than present facts, they will appeal to people’s FEARS and EMOTIONS. They arouse people’s racial and religious prejudices. They accuse opponents of disloyalty. They lie. They break the law and rules of conduct. Does anyone see this behavior exhibited in Trump? If you don’t, you have been taken in by him. Donald Trump, the President of the United States, is a DEMAGOGUE.

All politicians including presidents lie and use demagoguery to an extent to get elected, to promote their agendas, and to hold on to power. With Trump though, we have seen it at a very dangerous level. Trump has incited violence and has riled up his supporters to the point of them yelling racist chants at his rallies.

Ask yourself this: How far is Trump willing to go? His mental instability combined with his demagoguery can result in him riling up his supporters to cause violence in the streets. This could very well happen if he were to lose the election. It could happen if he feels cornered. It could happen if something doesn’t go his way. IT CAN HAPPEN. He can incite violence at a more dangerous level than we have seen in the past.

His supporters are so mesmerized by him. They are clueless to how dangerous he is. That should horrify every American.

A Challenge for Trump Cultists

For the most part, those who support Trump remain silent on his conduct and behavior. For the past 2 years, we have heard excuse after excuse after excuse made for him. I have a CHALLENGE for those who support him!

I challenge his cultists to try to muster up the courage to criticize something he says or does????? ANYTHING! He tells those around him to break the law in exchange for pardons. Perhaps that could be something you can criticize him for!!

FOR THE SAKE OF SWEET MOLASSES, ARE ANY OF THEM CAPABLE OF PUSHING BACK ON SOMETHING HE SAYS OR DOES?????? I WONDER IF THEY KNOW THAT THEY ARE CULTISTS WHO HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN BY WHAT THAT DEMAGOGUE FEEDS THEM.

At this point I’d accept them “criticizing” him by saying they don’t like the color of his tie. I think that would be the best of what we can expect from any of them!
