This chapter examines the ups and downs of a discorded party, profiling the literature, and the national-conservatism and the extreme right. Die Republikaner (REP) originated as a conservative party, ideologically close to its mother party CSU. The party radicalised shortly afterwards, with the take-over of Schönhuber as party leader and Neubauer as chief editor, expressing an increasingly nationalist and xenophobic outlook. Xenophobic nationalism is at the core of almost all themes that are discussed regularly in the party literature. Though the REP puts a lot of attention on the ongoing process of degeneration, its views on ethical values are moderately conservative. Finally, the REP is a democratic party, in that it supports parliamentarianism, and even militant democracy, and strives for acceptance and power within the current German political system.
