I actually don't believe that he did use the term, but I was trying to capture that idea without too many words, thus the quotation marks.

It was interesting that he mentions that popular uprisings in the 20th century were all won with the support of the extreme right wing. It's clear that the emotional component is very closely tied to these ideologies (and many if not most ideologies) but it's so strange to me that one would think that racial purity is the pathway to peace.
