Abstrakt

The article deals with the emotion analysis of online hate speech,
studying the way that emotions are performed in online hate speech directed at
the Swedish-speaking population in Finland. The material originates from the
public debate forum Suomi24. In analysing the forum posts, I intend to show how
hatemongers use emotional words, emotive expressions and metaphors referring
to the Finnish national awakening and how this is connected to the populist
discourse of today. As a result, three categories of hate speech emerge from the
material: suspicion, demasculinization, and dehumanization.
