Chapter Summary

The direct and indirect effects of public antisemitic discourse on antisemitic prejudice are well known. Several historical analyses have demonstrated that it is in this particular milieu that antisemitic vocabulary, language, and discussion topics are established, which are then transformed by members of the social elite into a coherent discourse. A particular problem faced by Hungarian political parties and organizations after 1989 was the task of establishing clear and distinct identities. The chapter examines three rounds of discourse. The first round comprises overtly antisemitic, Nazi, Arrow Cross, and neo-Nazi manifestations. The second round comprises the antisemitic discourse of the center. This discourse is dominated by the theme of traditional Hungarian antisemitism. The third discourse is the conservative political discourse. This discourse took place at the center of political and cultural life.
