Dr. Propaganda

Here's how to recognize propaganda.

Stalinist propaganda poster
Unnecessary Superlatives
When you hear words like "excellent," "exceedingly," and "incredible" you need to question the credibility of the statements.

Bizarre Statements
The poster above says Stalin is father to all Russian children.
he might live to be 200 years old. ~ Dr. Ronny Jackson
Propaganda pretends that the leader is godlike, implying he is omnipotent or immortal.

Manipulated Numbers
In 1995, Saddam Hussein claimed he won an election with 99.96% of the vote. Dr. Jackson claims Donald Trump is in excellent health because he is one pound short of being obese and one inch taller than he every was before. When numbers seem rigged, they probably are.

When you recognize propaganda it is best to simply dismiss as a lie everything the source says.
