A demagogue is defined as a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power.
Demagoguery is defined as the action of winning support by exciting the emotions of ordinary people rather than by having good or morally right ideas.
Demagoguery correlates strongly to authoritarianism. It is difficult to find any demagoguery that doesn’t appeal to authoritarianism.
Authoritarian submission is one’s willingness to comply with established authorities placing very narrow limits on people’s rights to criticize authorities. Second, authoritarians advocate sanction against those whom they deem detrimental to established authorities. Authoritarian aggression is enhanced by the belief that established authority at least tacitly approves it or that it will help preserve established authority. Thus, the theory of authoritarianism is closely related to the theory of social dominance.
This is an example of a demagogue using demagoguery for the purpose of promoting authoritarian polices to further his control and power. It is shameful and morally corrupt. Nevertheless, many people in the United States would support this evil because they will also gain wealth and power because of it.
Biden recalled the history of lynching at a White House screening of a new movie about Emmet Till and celebrated the passage of a bill making lynching a federal hate crime saying "some people still want to do that." Remember, this same Biden praised and glorified Robert Byrd who was a leader of the KKK.
Biden recalled black people "lynched for simply being black, nothing more."
"With white crowds, white families gathered to celebrate the spectacle, taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards," Biden remembered. "Hard to believe, but that's what was done. And some people still want to do that."
Lynchings ended in the 1950’s and even then were rare. Lynchings have always been wrong and were always condemned by the vast majority of all people, black, brown and white.
The use of lynchings in the manner that Biden is doing today is to bring about hate and division. It has done just that.
Saira Rao, a self-proclaimed leftist, has claimed that all Republicans, as well as their significant others and their friends, are all fascists.
"If you are a Republican in 2023, you are a fascist. If you are married to/in a relationship with a Republican in 2023, you are a fascist. If you are friends with a Republican in 2023, you are a fascist. At some point, your actions need to match your memes. It's a low bar,"
Yes, demagoguery is self-serving, it is evil and hateful, and it brings about destruction, devastation, and division. This is what the communists have used to gain power. This is what aspiring tyrants use to gain power. This is why evil hates the Bible and Jesus Christ. Jesus told us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, and then told us the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as our self. If we are following the commands of Christ we will not fall prey to the evils of demagoguery, to the evil of those who have promised to transform the United States into a nation of communism, into a nation of hatred and division, into a totalitarian state. You can see why the left is also waging a war against the Bible and Jesus Christ.
