An all-encompassing CCM buzzword.

In modern usage, far right or right-wing extremist are over-used plastic words and polarising perspectives meant to create an enemy image and put the people or idea outside the Overton Window. As clichés, they should be put in brackets - "far-right", "right-wing extremist" - to show that the use of the terms are problematic.

Example of enemy image created by corporate media, where the 2022 Freedom Convoy is framed as "far right"

One of the most favored propaganda tactics of [the establishment] is to relabel or redefine an opponent before they can solidly define themselves. In other words, [they] will seek to "brand" you (just as corporations use branding) in the minds of the masses so that they can take away your ability to define yourself as anything else...

Through the art of negative branding, your enemy has stolen your most precious asset — the ability to present yourself to the public as you really are.

Negative branding is a form of psychological inoculation. It is designed to close people’s minds to particular ideas before they actually hear those ideas presented by a true proponent of the ideas.[1]

Actual far right people and groups

Far right people and groups, in the older meaning of the word, mentioned in Wikispooks will tend to be so for having collaborated with intelligence services or as deep state entities. Some will even described themselves as far right.
