Doublespeak: The Framing of the Far-Right since 1945

    Abstract

    This timely intervention exposes the euphemized language of the extreme right as a Trojan Horse of deception to re-gain greater influence on public policy. Since the end of the Second World War, the extreme right has been tactically using ‘doublespeak’, aping the language of liberal democracy. Attentive observation and accurate recognition of the extreme right pedigree means taking seriously their deliberately crafted slogans, symbols and themes. The essays in this book inquire into the extreme right’s attempts at ‘repackaging’ contemporary ultranationalism to make it palatable to more mainstream European and American tastes.
