Background Information
This example of social media was found in the database of the more than 3,500 examples of propaganda that was placed on Facebook by Russian troll factories as part of their effort to sow discord in the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign. Stop All Invaders was a fake social media account created by Russian agents pretending to be U.S. political activists.
Technique Used
Respond to Audience Needs
This is propaganda because
The true intent of the propagandist is masked and the appeal is a radical simplification of issues related to immigration. There's an irony because the authors were Russian agents, and their urging to "stop all invaders" is itself a form of invasion on the political process.
