Propaganda

Whoa.. that’s a heavy topic there. What kind of propaganda are we talking about today because there is seven types of propaganda. We got Transfer, Testimonial, Glittering Generalities, Plain Folks, Bandwagon, Name Calling and Card Stacking. Now we could talk about them all and give examples of all of them but that would take a while. But the root of propaganda according to Websters dictionary is the ‘ideas or statements that are often false or exaggerated and that are spread in order to help a cause, a political leader, a government, etc.’ Lets just start with one today and we will be starting off with Bandwagon. Bandwagon is when they attempt to persuade a target audience to take action. Commonly said “Everyone else is doing it” or “Join the crowd”. This make people want to be on the winning side of the argument. They want you to feel like you’re going into the right side by sugar coating lies. To name a few things recently that causes Bandwagon is Obama’s Hope poster trying to feed us into making the world better. OR currently with the new election that is taking place. Because of all the junk that we have been fed no one is opening there eyes and seeing clearly anymore.
