The FAZ describes how nationalist rhetoric works in an article about the Turkish chauvinist Devlet Bahceli on November 9, 2016.

“In his speeches, he resorts to a classic narrative of nationalism even more radically and unthinkingly than other leaders of the country. It is the narrative of the beleaguered people, who for centuries have been in constant defensive struggle against all sorts of vicious internal and external enemies – Jews, Crusaders, Christians, Serbs, Americans, Armenians, and so on.”
