    Talking Post your favorite piece of propaganda

    I've seen a lot of statements here lately that would lead one to believe that many posters here think only one side or the other uses propaganda and fear mongering. In reality I think we all know that virtually all factions on almost any issue or cause uses propaganda if we take a moment to be honest with ourselves.

    Here is the idea: Post a link or pic or even describe a piece of propaganda you have seen or know of and tell why it is propaganda. Ideas for citing "principles" of propaganda can be taken from baghdad bob's thread:here, Vih's stickyhereor any good source you can findand link to.

    It can be something that angers you, something that you think is funny, whatever you want.

    And please, can we please keep the flames down, this is intended to let us have a little fun while making a point.

    I'll start with one of my favorites. Looked all over for a web image of this one but could not find it so a description will have to do.

    Picture of Adolph Hitler in hand raised "Sig Heil" Position

    Text: All those in favor of gun control, raise your right hand.

    (I am a staunch supporter of 2nd ammendment by the way)

    Propaganda tool:Testimonial: the association of a respected or hated person with an idea, symbolized by a seal and ribbon stamp of approval.

    Thanks to BB for the inspiration for this thread

    Go for it!

    Cite an example, analyze it and pick it apart.

    I don't care who or where it is from.

    Not arguing, but trying to encourage keeping within the spirit of the thread.

    Same for you Andrew.
