Malloy’s divisive tactics are those of a demagogue

Demagogues use vitriol because the ends justify the means. Their logic and morality is superior, and if you disagree, you are evil and stupid. It’s as simple as that. Consider what took place two weeks ago in Hartford. Gov. Dannel Malloy used the tool of vitriol when he purposefully called the Connecticut Republicans racist for differing with him on policy regarding the sentencing of drug use near schools.
