If they hadn't change 2012 red dawn from Chinese to North Korea. I would have said 2012 Red Dawn because it would make absolutely no sense in the real world.

Anyways, I would have to say the Call of Duty video games after WW2-Modern Warfare series.

They seem to have went from making games against good vs evil to straight US military propaganda. Activision hadn't even made a different non-propaganda game for a long time. I'm not surprised that Infinite warfare got poor reviews. Every soldier there seem to be like Americans. Unlike Halo which makes the soldiers seem like UN and other countries joining the war.

Nothing new under the sun...

if younger generations could only see the whole propaganda paradigm ever since the advent of the cold war, they would know this and stop making fool assertions about the shadows dancing in firelight on the cave wall.

Patriot's Day (movie that just came out with Mark Whalburg about the Boston Marathon incident)

There is a scene where the two attacker-brothers are in a hijacked car with an Asian victim. The two brothers begin talking about 9/11, how it wasn't really Muslims who attacked the towers, and how all of the "victims" on TV were really just actors.

It was a blatant attempt to discredit anyone who doesn't buy into the "official story" about 9/11.

Not to mention the movie itself, like Lone Survivor (same director), is an obvious attempt to propagandize the events from the Boston Marathon

Good one..

This was the most meaningful propaganda in my memory.

Pizza gate is the dumbest.

I would say the government propaganda that says we have nothing to worry about a culture, who was taught from birth to hate the U.S., moving into our country. That kind of propaganda is what changes the rulers of countries.

That the greatest threat to the most technologically advanced civilization the world has ever seen is a disenfranchised group of religious kooks who live in caves on the other side of the planet.

I wouldn't say Saudi Arabia, Qatar, or the UAE are destabilized and yet that still won out.


Yep! And those rogue nations are specifically the ones ObamaHillaryCO. marched in lockstep with in their Arab Spring conquest to topple the other ME states. So now we have the liberals, who are obsessed with protecting and nurturing the most brutally anti-liberal-values religious ideology in the known universe, worshiping the ground Obama & Hillary walk on, for eternity it would seem, all because they played lip service to multiculturalism (with a particular emphasis on Islam). Oh, and they helped sell this fantasy by blaming Russia for the entire 'genocide', simply for siding their long standing ally, Syria, whom we all now know without a doubt that it was the CIA's scheme to topple the regime there (using Al Qaeda & ISIS no less) to begin with.

2 + 2 + 2 = 72 ?

Talk about one of the ultimate hoodwinkings of party leaders on their own base in the annals of US political propaganda.




And of course McCain & Graham were on the ObamaHillaryCo. team to keep the GOP types in line with the imperialist anti-Islamic agenda.

The way Donald Trump has been treated is eerily similiar to the treatment of Emanuel Goldstein by Big Brother.

Ridiculous propaganda is a way of life here in the USA. If it is not from the government it is from the political parties themselves. The Democrats are best at propaganda, pushing for a world lifestyle that is not even rational at this time. They ignore the people they cause to work at low wages to produce the food we consume, the businesses mark it up and make more than the people taking the risk and expense to grow it.

I am not saying the Republicans got things right either, all governments and agencies spew propaganda. Especially the CDC and FDA, I bet a quarter of the CDC budget goes to promoting fear.

This is more of a lie than propaganda but this was so ridiculous that most democrats probably didn't even believe it. During the second debate, Hillary was asked about the leaked speech where she said she had a public and private opinion and she tried to say that she was talking about Abraham Lincoln.
