    If you actually thought to learn what a demagogue was you would see that she, and those who she appeals to, are the exact opposite. Demagogues are leaders who play to the fears and prejudices of a populace. The social justice movement wants fairness for all. Most politicians want fairness for the wealthy (who are often their friends, if not themselves). She speaks about a sort of restructuring of society so I don't have to break my back and live in fear (of unemployment, the next intentional economic disaster, or of the "enemy" who my government has so conveniently kept angry at me) while the wealthy next to nothing except make money from money and essentially live above the law. How about actually thinking about what you want to say before saying it? Deal?
