Abstrakt

Artykuł łączy metody z zakresu retorycznych studiów gatunkowych oraz podejścia dyskursywno-historycznego w celu przeprowadzenia kompleksowej analizy przemówienia Krzysztofa Bosaka, wygłoszonego podczas prawyborów prezydenckich Konfederacji w 2020 r. Omawiany gatunek jest rzadko realizowany w kontekście europejskim. Biorąc pod uwagę różnice między amerykańskim i polskim systemem politycznym, Bosak nie zastosował się do wszystkich wzorców standardowej odmiany tego gatunku. Jego przemówienie wydaje się raczej przypominać mowę akceptacyjną wygłaszaną przez kandydata reprezentującego pomniejsze formacje (third-parties). Zasadniczo Bosak przyjął rolę lidera podzielonej i niejednorodnej partii, której media głównego nurtu nie poświęciły zbyt wiele uwagi. W artykule zbadano, w jaki sposób czynniki te wpłynęły na strukturę i treść przemówienia. Co więcej, w ostatnich dekadach w Europie nastąpił gwałtowny wzrost znaczenia ruchów (skrajnie) prawicowych, do których można zaliczyć także Konfederację. W artykule porównano dyskurs tej stosunkowo nowej formacji politycznej z retoryką polityki strachu (Wodak, 2021).
