What are propaganda techniques? Can you recognize propaganda techniques in media reports? Look for emotionally loaded words, vague generalizations, allegations unsupported by facts, opinions passed off as facts, outright lies, lying by omission, agitation propaganda, disinformation, the ad hominem, and more. For more information, see the Media Madness section.

Question politically correct narratives. For example, is America systemically racist?

How would one prove such a sweeping generalization? Is there any evidence to support it? Which party makes this claim? What do they have to gain? What do they have to hide?

To shed light on these questions, see these videos listed below:  The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party and How to Defeat the America Is Racistâ Lie. or a more in-depth discussion, see the section Voices of Black Conservatives.
