So ... if you were creating posters for a propaganda campaign, what would you put on them?

(Reminder, without much spoiler: we've had two so far)

I'm not clear on who, exactly, has final approval, so, what would do you think these people would do, each?

Debbie

Sarah Tucker

Dan

Bill Tucker

Mike

Come to think of it, Tuck's awake ... would he/Valerie be involved?

And what, exactly, is the propaganda campaign supposed to achieve?

It'd be interesting to see what people think (about who's running it, as well as about what they're trying to do, and what they might do to achieve that).

Amy!

The posters are what's known as "black propaganda". That is, propaganda meant to *look* like it comes from one side but in actuality commes from the other side with malicious intent. Either by highlighting less desirable aspects of thier agenda or by exagerating their attitudes just enough to piss people off.

The last few times the "local" anti-gay nutcases got an anti-gay measure on the ballot, someone has paid for "In favor" arguments in the voters pamphlets that were of this type.

The nutcases quote the bit in Leviticus about men not laying with men. The black proganda pieces quote adjacent sections that call for the same penalty (death by stoning) for things like eating shellfish or wearing clothing made from mixed types of fibers.

Another one went for suggesting that once the measure in question passed, then we should pass something to round up the gays and put them in camps.

I don't *think* a "final solution" type poster would work in Tuck's school. But it might.

If they could afford color, and given that at least some of the stuff directed against Tuck (and the others) is because they are seen as "fags", maybe something with death camp inmates wearing the pink triangle and "Hitler had the right idea!"

And yes, *that* is where the pink triangle symbol comes from. It's the gay equivalent of "Never Again!". Taking the symbol used to mark homosexuals in the camps and using it as a "We're here, deal with it" symbol instead.

(And Ellen, if you want to use the poster idea, go for it)

Yeah, but the point of THESE posters is that you don't have to be gay to deserve beatings or death. So that'd be counterproductive.

Now, if you had them eating shellfish or wearing wearing mixed-fiber clothing...
