Back to the Roots: Are Antisemites Still Authoritarians?
This study found a significant, yet not very strong, impact of authoritarianism on discriminatory antisemitism in a joint sample of four Central Eastern European countries (N = 6353). Submissive devotion to nondemocratic political leadership is found to be the strongest predictor of antisemitism. According to our data, contemporary antisemitism, embedded in an attitude set that expresses rejection of the status quo with its social hierarchy and norms, therefore does not reflect uncritical acceptance of the power structures as the original theory of the authoritarian personality suggests.
