He uses tactics very similar to those of the Front National--exploit the very real and relevant economic concerns of economically disadvantaged, minimally-educated (I say this in a demographic sense, not in a intellectual snobbery sense) people in areas with little ethnic diversity. Lack of political doublespeak, even if it's to spew fascist hatred, really resonates with people who feel cheated by economic collapse, its consequences, and who have a limited understanding of how change can really be affected in a way that would benefit the maximum amount of people.

It makes me so angry how easily people can be convinced to vote against their best interests. It's pure exploitation.
