THE ACADEMIC WORLD IS TAKING SERIOUSLY THE DANGERS OF THE LAROUCHE ORGANIZATION!
 
A one-day international symposium on the language of far-right movements:
Speaking with Forked Tongues
The Rhetoric of Right-Wing Extremism Today
 
Friday, 26 June 2009, Park Campus, University of Northampton , United Kingdom
Keynote speakers: Professor Roger Griffin, Professor Janet Wilson, Mr. Michael Ellis, Chip Berlet, Dennis King, families of victims and some former members...
 

From Holocaust "revisionism" in places like Central Europe to "white nationalist" parties in Britain and France to veiled anti-Semitic conspiricism by the American ideologue, Lyndon LaRouche, the recourse to language as a political veil, rather than a transparent means of communication, has been a key feature of radical right-wing movements since 1945. This daylong event promises to uncover salient techniques and relevant practices employed in far-right rhetoric, for the benefit of contemporary researchers, policy-makers and the wider public.
