LEMOS, Joelma Galvão de  and  COELHO, Daniel Menezes. The political use of hate speech: a case study on facebook (2016). Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.46, pp. 528-542. ISSN 2175-1390.

In the period of the process of the investigation of the "taxpedaling" carried out by President Dilma Rousseff, the online social networks, including Facebook, were used by their browsers to express their positions for and against the investigation request, as well as to publicize the mobilizations andpublic acts of support and opposition to this process. Among the posts published during this period, hate speech stood out and seemed to unite some subjects who shared the same ideological andpoliticalpositions. In order to better understand why this discourse was so present at this moment and what would be its possible effects, which we analyzed through case study, supported by the psychoanalytic framework, some of these hate discourses. We realizedfrom this study that Facebook, the online bubbles reinforced this discourse and how it was usedpolitically to legitimize the investigation request and the outcome of this process.
