Linguistic Self-Defence Guide Against Antisemitism

Manipulation is a form of abuse. However, many of us lack sufficient self-defence training to recognise and resist it. In fact, most of the time, we do not even notice that we are manipulated and deceived.

Within Get the Trolls Out, our monitors have detected about 200 antisemitic media incidents in 5 European countries (Belgium, France, Greece, Hungary and the United Kingdom). Anti-Jewish hatred is spread through manipulation, through a tricky language mostly, which can effectively influence people.

Relying on examples of antisemitism uncovered by our monitors, our Linguistic Self-Defence Guide Against Antisemitism teaches you the most common hidden linguistic mechanisms that you can come across in antisemitic speech. There are a number of tricks to look out for in order to protect yourself and avoid falling victim to manipulation.
