Nationalism in Slobodan Milošević’s speeches
Languages of publication
The fall of Yugoslavia showed economical, national, ideological and political problems. Thus, there was a strong rise of hidden nationalisms among nations living on the same territory, such as Slovenian, Croatian, Bosnian, Serbian, Montenegrin and Macedonian from 1980’. The aim of the article is to show how Slobodan Milošević’s nationalism was raising in his speeches in the period between 1988 (when he came to power) and 1992 (the new constitution of FRY was established). The author analyzed eleven speeches made during the debates in the Serbian Parliament, during sessions of the Socialist Party of Serbia and during meetings with people in such cities as Gazimstan, Belgrade, Novi Sad, Bor and Niš. In his speeches Milošević raised such subjects as the question of Yugoslavia, the question of Serbian nation living on the whole territory of Yugoslavia, the role of Serbia in the creation of Yugoslavia. Additionally, he was blaming “enemies” (such as Slovenia, Croatia, Albanians from Kosovo) for collapse of Yugoslavia and the war in the 1990’. He was using a language of populism and propaganda to enhance his goals and tried to be emotionally close to his nation.
