Huxley on Propaganda by Skargill Huxley on Propaganda by Skargill
Another quote, this time about propaganda. Image is a UKIP poster, somehow it seemed fitting.

Sounds like Fox news to me

'Your government is allowing mass migration into the country and is not doing anything about it except for giving them free money, free education, free housing and free food while simultaneously cutting down benefits for the men and women who have fought, bled, died and suffered for you. We think this is wrong so we're alerting you, the citizen, to it.'

Yup. Actually it does. >_>

And that's a good thing.

I thought that was too obvious.

Couldn't I make the same argument if you objected to having 29 American tourists camp out in your room? I don't really see the dehumanization you're implying with the combination of the poster and the quote.

No as a matter of fact you couldn't, your example involves trespassing and serial overcrowding so it isn't at all the same argument. Though it does still imply that those 29 tourists are less then mine and so are less human then me so you got the dehumanising aspect.

"I don't really see the dehumanization you're implying with the combination of the poster and the quote." Really you don't see what's dehumanising about referring to two entire national groups as threatening hordes? Well that's to bad but that's your own personal failing. The message of the poster is very simple "Fear the foreigners" if you can't see how that's dehumanising then I feel bad for you.

Where does this occur in the poster?

"The message of the poster"

No, your interpretation of the poster is "fear the foreigners." Don't piss on me and tell me it's raining.

"Where does this occur in the poster?" Right at the top there, your writing to me in English so I know you can read English, I can only assume your pretending not to understand to try and prove your point.

"No, your interpretation of the poster is "fear the foreigners."" Bollocks, a poster made about an alleged mass migration of foreign groups in a explicitly negative context and its my interpretation? Yeah right. If it is my interpretation then all I've done is interpret it in the manner in which it was intended. Whereas you on the other hand seem to have interpreted it as a warning against tourists.

"Don't piss on me and tell me it's raining." Here's a thought hows about you practice what you preach? Turning piss into rain is literally what you're doing here. Or at least what your trying to do it's clear your not very good at it.

Where? Do you mean the large text or the tiny corner piece?

"...an alleged mass migration of foreign groups in a explicitly negative context..."

I'm not sure what you mean by this, though. Your interpretation of the intended meaning =/= intended meaning.
