arma virumque cano (et alia)
The real gem(s) came at the end of the piece:ick Griffin is not an artist, he is the chairman of the British National Party (BNP). Just as most other national parties across the globe, BNP is a good example of propaganda techniques being used to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. BNP has used them to build their hate-filled ranks for years. BNP is extremely good at speaking to people in plain, emotional language and affecting those who experience personal problems and want to find someone who can be blamed for these problems.Just like many other national parties, BNP is blaming foreigners for these problems and uses strong religious metaphors to deliver the message. Very powerful, yet extremely unethical. This is an example of propaganda being used to manipulate people in a very deceptive, unfair manner.Sound familiar?I would have liked more about the techniques of propaganda in the piece.
"Sound familiar?"Sounds like the Democrats blaming all of our economic woes on the "rich" not willing to pay their "fair share" in taxes.
