Word For The Weekend

RABBLE-ROUSER

[RAAH-BULL-ROWW-SHER]

DEF:  (Thanks to Bridgette on Facebook!) A person who stirs up the passions or prejudices of the public, usually for his or her own interests; one that stirs up the masses of the people; also known as a demagogue. Origin? Between 1835 & 1845. Before then? There were rabbles, and even a few rousers, but nothing yet that involved a hyphen. Know anybody who this may apply to?
