ABCs of Propaganda: Recognizing Propaganda

Propaganda: repeat, repeat, repeat



“Is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible.”
Edward Bernays, Propaganda (1928)

The mystery of iniquity calls it “propaganda.”

Jesus called it “deception.”

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
–Matthew 24:4

No matter what it’s called, it’s the usual lies, untruths, narratives, backtracks, flipflops, clarifications and new information one has to deal with on a daily basis.

IF one lives in the USA–ground zero for deception in the end times–then one is SURROUNDED and ENVELOPED by propaganda (deceit).

How can one know when the news, an advertisement, entertainment or conversation is propaganda?

Here are a few clues.

1- Propaganda is intended to appeal to one’s emotions or feelings. It attempts to bypass reasoning, thinking and/or logic. In the USA, it usually (but not always) produces feelings of anger, hatred or fear.

“Hate is more lasting than dislike.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

2- Propaganda’s message is always a simple one.

Such as Aliens from outer space!

Threats to the earth from Above!

Witchcraft is great!

Christianity is for primatives!

The Bible is a book of bedtime stories!

You can trust Science! It is the Truth!

Listen to EXPERTS and really super-smart men, like Albert Einstein!

There are so many simple propaganda messages, it would take a book to list them all. BUT, it’s VERY important to keep the message simple.

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

3- REPEAT the message endlessly. The message cannot be repeated too much.

This is the most important rule of propaganda.

“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

Slogans such as LESS is MORE.

REPEATING the message over and over is the key.


Surrounded by Deception: Living in a Land of Deception

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

EVEN IF YOU TELL A LIE, make sure it’s repeated.

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

This one of the keys to recognizing propaganda: if it’s repeated (on TV, in the news, on the late night talk shows, in the comics, in a crossword puzzle, at the movies, on the radio, at a comedy show); if it’s the NEXT BIG THING and has people talking, it’s being repeated.

“Only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on the memory of the crowd.”
–Adolph Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

When the media can’t get enough of of a story and repeat it over and over 24/7, around-the-clock: the reader can be assured he’s being exposed to propaganda. The attempt is being made to manipulate his attitude and/or behavior, now or in the future.


These are the A-B-C’s of propaganda.

Does the reader recognize when he is being deceived?

Does the reader recognize propaganda?

Is the reader ready for the truth?

IF the answer is “yes,” the time for choosing is growing short.

IF the answer is “no,” the time is no less short: no time is bought by unbelief.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
