The man whom the “masses” have “found?”

I’ve been reading Kevin Passmore’s well written introduction to Fascism. A noteworthy quote is as follows:

“It would be complacent to assume that democracy is now so deeply rooted as to make it impossible for the extreme right to win power, for democracy itself is not free from discriminatory terndencies. Democracy is deeply rooted, but it is not always connected to a belief that all human beings deserve equal treatment. For many, it means simply the right of the majority to do as it wishes, and nationalist-populism has successfully exploited this conviction.” (Fascism: A Very Short Introduction, 156)
