Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the article is to present the aspects of demagoguery in Janusz Korwin-Mikke’s political appeal during presidential election campaign in 2015. The aim is to show how demagoguery is used by him to create the besieged fortress syndrome. The author stresses a broad spectrum of rhetorical manipulatory strategies, which includes providing demonic images of political opponents on the one side and idealized vision of Korwin-Mikke’s supporters on the other.
