Abstract

NEVES, Raphael. “Joga pedra na Judith”: hate speech and populism. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2018, n.53, e185307.  Epub June 11, 2018. ISSN 0104-8333.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/18094449201800530007.

The aim of this paper is to try to point out a possible link between the hostilities suffered by Judith Butler in Brazil and a capture of these conservative demonstrations by political movements. My hypothesis is that a new populism may be in the making. In this sense, the article dialogues with populism theories in Brazil and in the current international context. Butler’s work also serves as a backdrop for a reflection of populist politics and how attacks on sexual and reproductive rights serve as fuel to power authoritarian forces with great appeal to the masses.

Keywords : Populism; Democracy; Judith Butler; Human Rights; Conservatism.
