The poison of propaganda By Steven Parks Kevin Schanze
Propaganda in use
Most of Germany’s propaganda was used to convince the people that the Jews were the causes of all of their problems. Their problems included lack of food, money and the fact that they were losing the war. Most of this explains how there is still general racism towards the Jewish people.
How to hate a Jew
The Nazi party used many ways to get the German people to hate Jews. One of the ways was the use of newspapers and of medical journals, saying that they were animals and that they were below every one else. Depicting and convincing the people that Jews were like animals made the German people feel superior.
Children of Hate
Just before the Holocaust and during there was a book published called the Poisonous Mushroom, which taught children that Jews were as harmful as eating a poisonous mushroom. This made their minds perfect to be generally racist to the Jews and any one else that was against Hitler
Why propaganda works
One of the reasons that propaganda works is because it attacks something that people are already afraid of. Then put a few lies, then add it all together and you have yourself a perfect scapegoat for world domination.
Propaganda was also used to convince the American people that WWII was a war worth fighting for, so they created propaganda to get people to fight in the war or to buy war bonds so that they could support the war effort
For today most propaganda is used by companies on commercials to sell things to make a profit or to buy a certain product. There isn’t that much hate propaganda that is out there today.
