Brad Trost: Populism happens when elites ignore the people

Brad TrostGuest Post

At The Rebel Live Calgary on November 10, 2018, Conservative MP for Saskatoon-University Brad Trost spoke about this history of populism and what that loosely used term actually means.

Talking heads in the media have referred to Donald Trump, Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro, and Doug and Rob Ford as populists. But what is it they have in common?

WATCH Brad's speech to see how populism has been used by the left and the right, and how it played a major role in the politics of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

This sure is one excellent speech. I just recommended to my socialist nephew. Maybe the message might get through all the university brainwashing he underwent.
