Incredible Propaganda

 

If you like to laugh at/be outraged by propaganda, and you have plenty of time to waste, don’t miss 

The_Story_of_Stuff

But be aware that this woman uses the word “pitcher” rather than “picture” several times–a major pet peeve of mine!  Oh, and she also mixes a whole boatload of garbage in with a few good facts.  It’s appalling that they are serving this stuff up to school kids. 

And if you’re still up for more, go here and see the response to it.  What’s interesting is that in this rebuttal, supposedly to debunk the first video, there is again a pretty healthy dose of propaganda and slanted reporting, IMO.  I think it is definitely more factual than the original, but it certainly isn’t unbiased.

Whatever.  My dad used to say, “Don’t believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see.”  I’d say the percentages have probably increased since then, too.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    it took a bit to watch it all,, kept stopping,, that didnt help,,,  i started to shut it down,, but toughed it out till the end,, i got curious as to what her solution was,,,hahahahaha,,, yes we can,,, basically,,, in other words she didnt have one,,,its ok to have an agenda,,, and its ok if your agenda is implimented,,, if your agenda has a clearly outlined end plan that everyone understands,,, and at least a majority agrees with,,,something our ruling partys dont understand,,, or the makers of this video,,,  the basics….

    I’ve seen these videos before.  They are well done.  Yes, full of propaganda.  And, yes, GB is full of propaganda, too.  Stuff.  I have a story of stuff, too.  It’s all over my livingroom making me crazy!  It’s books that need shelf space and mugs I don’t like.  It’s junk mail that keeps coming.  It’s scraps of drawings Hannah drew when she was four.  Wonderful, awful, glorious stuff!  The stuff that lets our kids know they came home to the right house! 🙂

    @BooksForMe – Oh, do I ever know what you mean, sister!  STUFF can make me crazy, but I can’t seem to get rid of it.  And btw, I don’t think GB made the rebuttals.
