chap3 28/5/02 13.31 Page 60 3 Deutsche Volksunion The whims of an extreme right business man One of the most influential people in the German post-war extreme right scene is Gerhard Frey, the multi-millionaire media czar who owns and publishes several newspapers (see Müller 1989: 66–74; Backes and Jesse 1993: 295–7; Mecklenburg 1999b). Born in 1933 into a traditional national-conservative merchant family, Frey first worked for the Deutsche Soldatenzeitung (German Soldiers Newspaper, DSZ) and later bought 50 per cent of its stock. During the 1960s his

in The ideology of the extreme right

This book provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the five main parties of the extreme right in the Netherlands (Centrumdemocraten, Centrumpartij), Belgium (Vlaams Blok), and Germany (Die Republikaner, Deutsche Volksunion). Using primary research — including internal party documents — it concludes that rather than right-wing and extremist, the core ideology of these parties is xenophobic nationalist, including also a mix of law and order and welfare chauvinism. The author's research and conclusions have broader implications for the study of the extreme-right phenomenon and party ideology in general.

the Italian MSI, which is according to Ignazi the inspiration for all extreme right-wing parties up until the 1970s. Other old extreme right parties are the BNP, CP’86, Deutsche Volksunion-Liste D (German People’s Union-List D, DVU), and NPD (Ignazi 1992). In his more recent work Ignazi has renamed the ‘old’ into ‘traditional’, and the ‘new’ into ‘post-industrial’ extreme right parties (1994a, 1994b). Even though the basis for classification remains the same, there are some changes in the actual classification of the individual parties. Former borderline cases such

When the Metzgers traveled to Berlin in 1994, local authorities quickly sent them back to the United States—though not before the Americans staged a rally with members of the Deutsche Volksunion (German Peoples’ Union), a leading far right party that attracted neo-Nazis and skinheads. 77 While state scrutiny often stifled face-to-face political organizing, the rise of the
