On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I showed a clip of from Ben Shapiro's interview with Stephen Harper where our former Prime Minister explained why it's incorrect to label the emerging populist/nationalist movement's "far-right".
As Harper explains, it's doesn't make even make mathematical sense to label the concerns of forty or fifty percent of the electorate as "fringe".
Populism is emerging because the elites who ran societies ignored people's concerns for too long, and now they are witnessing the backlash. Continuing to dismiss these movements as "fringe" and "far-right" ignores their growing mass appeal.
Concerns over illegal immigration and unfair trade deals are valid and must be addressed.
WATCH my video see why I think Harper's honesty on the issue of populism is refreshing in comparison to what we're seeing from Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer and Alberta's United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney.
