Name that World Leader

This person had a meteoric rise to power from relative obscurity.  He gave speeches to adoring crowds chanting his name.  Armed with Ideology but no meaningful experience, he rose to the leadership of his nation.  Once in power, he nationalized healthcare, blew out spending on national programs and raised taxes to pay for it.  Gun control legislation was a major priority.  He viewed Capitalism as evil.  He marginalized religion.  He demonized entire classes of the population as being the root cause of the nations problems.  He encourages citizens to report on one another, used the state apparatus to monitor and intimidate dissenters and believed he was the smartest guy in the room.

Who is this person?

Hint; think 1930’s Germany – Why, who were you going to say?
