    Well Im assuming the answer is that in order to become a dictator period, they need something, the scapegoat, in order to give a reason for all of the ills of the said country, for example, Adolf Hitlers blaming of the Jews and other minorities for all of the problems of Nazi Germany. This way, they have something to grasp the peoples attention and get them to their side.
