(en) France, UCL AL #328 - antifascism: Scouting: the dog whistle, it stirs up (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 29 Jun 2022 09:21:47 +0300

Dog whistle or dog whistle in French, but what can it mean ? It is in fact a technique often used by the extreme right in order to attract a specific audience through the use of a " coded " message. The speech given will seem normal to the majority but will attract the attention of a specific group. ---- For example, in February 2022 Gérald Darmanin speaks to a journalist saying " Calm down, it's going to be fine " which refers both to a supposed hysteria of women by masculinist circles but also to a line that had become a meme in the fachosphere. ---- This use of suggestive messages makes it possible to obtain the support of a group by avoiding strong opposition. Another example on the left Fabien Roussel will spend his campaign talking about meat and opposing " tofu " , a theme dear to the far-right electorate that he wanted to recover. All the criticisms which will then be made by the left to this strategy will be ridiculed by the PCF which will hide behind gastronomy and " eating well ".

In the United States, expressions such as " family values " or " international bankers " are used by certain politicians to flirt with the Christian or anti-Semitic electorate respectively.

Dog whistles are often difficult to detect for people who are not very politicized or who do not know the context around the chosen " dog whistle " well.This makes this technique all the more effective in that it reinforces the feeling of belonging to a community of values while remaining relatively unknown to the general public and therefore difficult to attack.
