The language of populism in Finland and France after Second World War

My aim is to study populism after Second World War in France and Finland from its own rhetorics. As preliminary sources I have speeches of populist leaders. I am especially intrested in relations between religion and populism, which is not studied in the European context. How to build up identity of suffering people instead of ideology?
