Monument at Dr. Karl Lueger Platz. In 1875, he was elected to Vienna's City Council (Gemeinderat), initially as a liberal. He would serve on the council until his death, save for a two-year break from 1876 to 1878. Asked to explain the fact that many of his friends were Jews, Lueger famously replied, 'I decide who is a Je.

In the Christian Social party, anti-Semitism became the political instrument for mobilising the masses. Lueger developed a xenophobic and anti-Semitic cultural code that became the set of values that gave his supporters a sense of identity. Lueger's populist rhetoric of stereotyping Jews as outsiders enabled the Viennese to form an imagined community by process of differentiation. Lueger's anti-Semitic attitude had but little ideological basis. This opportunist approach was expressed in the cynical claim: "I determine who is a Jew". On the one hand, Lueger's position was based on a long tradition of religious anti-Jewish resentment. He made use of the popular myths of Catholic anti-Jewishness that had been passed down over centuries and supported by official Church doctrine.

LUEGER, KARL° (1844–1910), leader of the antisemitic Christian Social Party in Austria. Born in Vienna into a lower middle-class family, he qualified as a lawyer. He began his political career with the left wing of the Progressive Party and was elected as its candidate to the city council in 1875. There he associated with Jewish members, among them Ignaz Mandl, a Jewish lawyer who remained his friend and political adviser even after Lueger had ousted him from the Democrats in 1889. Geehr, was titled after this notorious phrase: "I Decide Who Is a Jew!" (1982). Lueger's antisemitism was opportunistic rather than racist, but he had a profound influence on the young Adolf Hitler in his formative years, and established on a firm footing the Viennese antisemitic tradition.
