Politics as Usual

An Antiparliamentarism of the Left?

(p.184) 11 Politics as Usual
War, Memory, and the Politics of Humor

Allen Douglas

University of California Press

This chapter examines French domestic politics as viewed by the Canard. It shows that the paper wavered between two positions: the first was a “republicanism” located between the Socialist and Radical parties, while the second was a more politically undecided antiparliamentarism. The discussion looks at how the Canard satirized the way the rest of the press covered the Third International supporters and also developed a position that suggested the entire democratic-electoral process was a futile exercise.

Keywords:   domestic politics, republicanism, Socialist party, Radical party, antiparliamentarism, Third International, supporters, democratic-electoral process
