Don't let Donald Trump fool you: rightwing populism is the new normal - Gary Younge | CiF

It might be tempting to view the political success of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as something uniquely American.

But, argues Gary Younge, rightwing populism and scapegoating of society’s vulnerable is cropping up all across the west. This, he says, is what happens when big business has more power than governments.

  1. Does the Guardian only employ the most hideous applicants? Between this guy, Steven Thrasher and Julie Bindel I may not get any sleep tonight. Monsters are real! Or is it their elitist overlord Dame Liz Forgan needs to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find lefty-fascist, humanity-hating extremists of the stripe required to fulfill her agenda to destroy western culture? Either way, you fascist fucks are on your way out. The tide is turning in Europe and throughout the world and none of your progressive talking points can distract from the reality people see around them.

  2. So, you're saying that the real problem is the multinationals, and the right-wing populists who want to take power back from the multinationals and return in to the people are somehow bad?

  3. Populism is "a political ideology which holds that the virtuous citizens are being mistreated by a small circle of elites, who can be overthrown if the people recognize the danger and work together "

    You can find them to the left wing too… Just look at south america… Equally dangerous. Stop the bias please.

  4. More shit coming down the left-wing pipeline. People are simply not falling for your lies and race baiting anymore. You ignore the underlining issues, you ignore the nuance of these economic situations were in, you ignore everything and go straight to "RACISM"
    You people dig your own graves, Trump popularity is a direct correlation with the people wanting their needs to come first- they're tired of being second class citizens in their own countries. They're tired of your linear regressive views- your political correctness and you persecution of thought-crimes. Right wing politics are on the rise because people are sick of your shit- they're sick you.

    This is coming from one of your own; I use to be a viewer- a progressive and a liberal but then I woke up and stopped seeing the world through such blatant lies. You people have nowhere to go but down and we have nowhere to go but up.

  5. I wonder if some viewers have changed there opinions on Trump now. But the point really of this is the global economic system holds a lot of blame. Populism is a strategy to lure voters and Trump did play this card very well.

  6. Interestingly enough, my professor had us watch this video for one of our assignments, as proof of why Trump and capitalism is so bad. College campuses are the worst place to be nowadays…
