Set your Jabberwocky meter to stun. Remember kids, when celebrities share their personal experience with vaccine injury and vaccination choice, they are stupid sluts (if female) and stupid dunderheads (if male.)
Newsweek, December, 2020: The list includes Jenny, Jim, Jessica, Kat, Rob, Toni, Kristin, Alicia, and others, but is HARDLY a compendium of "every" celebrity. How shoddy. Every Celebrity to Speak Out Against Vaccines
Last week, President Biden trotted out 18 year old Olivia Rodrigo to make Tik Tok videos encouraging young, healthy Americans to get the Covid vaccine. She wants you happy, healthy, and vaccinated. (Teen Vogue.) Newsweek July, 2021. Olivia Rodrigo and These Other Stars Are Urging People to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine
If you're thinking this is a political post on our part at AofA - think again. Propaganda is a useful tool on both sides of the aisle - What do Billy Ray Cyrus, Dwyane Wade, and Dr. Oz have in common? Practically nothing, especially not their politics. Yet they found themselves on a list of ten celebrities approved by the Trump White House for a planned COVID-19 ad campaign to “defeat despair and inspire hope.”
Propaganda: information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view. Women were "sold" the idea of joining the workforce during WWII using government created propaganda:
To mobilize these women, all of the government propaganda needed to communicate a central theme...it concentrated on personal patriotism and emotional appeals. The patriotic appeal had two aspects, the positive "do your part" approach and the negative "a soldier may die if you don't do your part" warning. The campaign slogan "The More Women at Work-The Sooner We'll Win" promised women that their contributions could bring their men home sooner. (Rupp 1978, 156). The Office of War Information was responsible for "selling" the war to women. It sent monthly guides to magazine and newspaper editors and radio commentators, suggesting approaches to war topics. The OWI also allocated air time and print space, so that the media would stress the same themes at the same time. It distributed films and maintained a close relationship with the War Advertising Council. The agency launched campaigns and urged magazines to cover working women in their articles (Berkin and Norton 1979, 344).
