The empire of conspiracy: the axiomatic role of antisemitism in the ideology of the Hungarian extreme right

“Ongoing genocide”, “Tracking the Rulers of the World”, “White Europe is under ultimate threat”, “Hungary: 100% Israel”. These are some typical titles you can see on the front page of Baridád (Barricade) magazine, the official weekly of the ultranationalist Hungarian Jobbik party.

Nem minden előzmény nélkül és nem a semmiből, de mégis: berobbant és viharos sebességgel elterjedt a cigányellenesség a széles nyilvánosság előtt zajló diskurzusokban. Olyan mértékben, amelyre a rendszerváltás óta nem volt példa.   A teljes cikk az Élet És Irodalom oldalán olvasható.

On the march

In recent years, Hungary has became infamous for its far-right Movement for a Better Hungary, better known as Jobbik, and its paramilitary allies organised in the street armies of the ‘Hungarian Guard’. Jobbik is the most successful far-right party to emerge in the two decades following Hungary’s transition from state socialism to free-market capitalism in 1989-1990. Founded as a political party in 2003, Jobbik’s breakthrough year came in 2009, when it won 14.8%  Read more

The roots of radicalism and anti-Roma attitudes on the far right

This paper seeks to look more closely at the prevalence of anti-gypsy sentiment, which is one of the main pillars of Hungarian far-right movements. It will show which social groups and attitudes connect with the politically increasingly relevant anti-gypsy concept – a concept which, for all that it is extreme, has been widely accepted in Hungary in recent  Read more

The radical right in Europe: Available on Demand

Peter Kreko argues that social demand for radical right ideologies not only works to increase the electoral base of support for radical right parties, but also shifts the overall political landscape in a more authoritarian, more nationalistic and more chauvinistic direction. Most “attitude radicals” are not found in the ranks of the radical right, but  Read more

Conspiracy Theories on the Rise in Europe

The International Monetary Fund fuelled the economic crisis in emerging Europe in 2009 to create a situation in which it would be asked to help bail out the region, and consequently elevate the IMF’s status and importance.  The ravings of a fringe blogger perhaps, an angry anti-globalization activist or far-right ideologist?  If only.  In fact,  Read more
