Blaming the “dissidents”
Emotional rhetoric in factual issues
Nostalgic notions of nationality
Shifting attention to irrelevant matters
“Threat to our language”
Reference to homeland
The true people have a unified culture
Shifting attention from actions to feelings
One-liners from popular entertainment
“The people want...”
Opposing the elite
Leader doing physical work
Us against them
A certain group is not part of “the people”
Glorifying the past
The people have shared values
“My children...”
War metaphors
“There are no options”
Made-up sayings
“Other [leaders] are alienated from the people”
“Cool” hand signs
“The people know that...”
Difficult issue brushed aside with a joke
