For a long time, liberal political theory has been obsessed with drawing boundaries between the decent and the indecent, the mainstream and the fringe, the acceptable and the unacceptable. The assumption was that if the radical right is clearly recognized as such, labelled, and sequestered into its corner, it can do no real damage. The only real challenge is to recognize it in time.

It forces us to make a clearer distinction between radical right parties and radical right politics.
