Bonus points for work propaganda
Good ole Winter War.
>Politruk [political officer] is worse than the enemy
>He shoots you in the back!
Finnish propaganda of that era is very interesting because it actually tries to reason with Russians, of all people.
PEOPLE OF LENINGRAD
BECAUSE OF MADNESS OF YOUR VILE WARMONGERS, your soldiers are spilling their blood in a hopeless struggle, yet people are suffering from starvation. All your hospitals are overcrowded with wounded. WHAT FOR?
RED ARMY IS NOT MOVING A SINGLE STEP AHEAD. Look at the map and think. Why did they attack Finland which only wants peace. [no question mark in the original] WHO IS TO WIN IN THIS WAR?
We, Finnish pilots, could have bombed you just like Soviet pilots bomb our cities. But we don't want that because we're considered a cultured nation. We're only addressing you with an advice to think where the truth is.
THIS IS THE REAL TRUTH
200.000 MEN WERE LOST BY SOVIET UNION ON THE FINNISH FRONT
IN TWO MONTHS
FINNS WILL PAY YOU DEARLY FOR WEAPONS YOU TAKE WITH YOU:
For revolver 100 rubles
for rifle 150 rubles
for rapid-firing revolver [semi-auto pistol, I think? or an SMG?] 400 rubles
for machine gun 1500 rubles
for tank 10.000 rubles
FOR AN INTACT PLANE 10.000 DOLLARS IS PAID AND BESIDES THAT TRIP ABROAD TO ANY COUNTRY IS PAID
Down with the war! Surrender and finish it with that. Come to us. We'll greet you as friends.
I think a sizeable amount of Soviet soldiers did manage to "emigrate" to Finland by surrendering, actually.
THROUGH CAPTIVITY - TO FREEDOM!
It's warm and hearty at Finns'!
Russo-Japanese War, delusion incarnate incoming.
"Enemy is scary yet God is merciful!"
Probably the most infamous one, "Cossack's breakfast".
Telling the enemy someone else is sleeping with your wife while you are away is a decent way to decrease morale, for example the Tokyo rose.
Remember American soldier Bart Simpson is sleeping with your wife?
I know that the Soviet Union and communism were flawed buy goddamn if I dont love their propagands
Disputed. If real, not widespread like you make it sound.
>kill simply because they believe in God
You mean simply because they actively supported a pseudo feudalist society of rural exploitation and collaborated with the fascists and antirepublicans.
I love these two.
This one looks like it belongs in a museum.
And this one looks like it belongs in a Pink Floyd cover.
We never had poster propaganda, all I can find is videos
American Korean War propaganda, telling Chinese soldiers their Moist Nuggets are shit and are going to get them killed.
>simply because they believe in God
yep, had absolutely nothing to do with the fascism thing, or with the church owning a ridiculous amount of land and exploiting the workers and farmers
Bought this one on a visit to the Imperial War Museum, always loved it
The funniest piece of propaganda ever.
During the Korean War, North Koreans recovered an American GI's letter to his wife after an offensive into a US encampment. The central office turned this into a propaganda coup. Making a leaflet juxtaposing the letter next to a picture of dead Americans and on the obverse, a picture of a white woman asking when her husband is coming home, supposedly the object of the letter's affection...
Interesting that the shield is essentially the Polish flag
On a related note, does anybody have Russian Imperial propaganda that was targeted at non-Russian populations?
Propaganda in Polish, Tatar, Yiddish, Latvian, etc
BUT, it turns out that not only was the American soldier that wrote the letter not dead, he and his wife were found to both be alive and happily married all the way into 2014, when people on the internet read this leaflet on a war propaganda repository site and decided to try and track down the concerned person's family.
Humorously, contrary to the pictures both the soldier and his wife are black.
I have quite a few Imperial and White Russian posters that I'll be showing, but I can't think of any that directly targeted certain minorities.
Even the ostensibly pro-national self-determination Republic and Bolsheviks pandered to minorities with gritted teeth, let alone the conservatives who saw trying to pander to them as separatist treason.
This is why I love history.
tried to find examples of defectors to finland, but all these defectors are very interesting characters
>Boris Georgiyevich Bazhanov was a secretary of the Soviet Union's Politburo, and personal secretary to Joseph Stalin from August 1923 through 1925. After holding several different positions in the Politburo from 1925 to 1928, Bazhanov defected from the Soviet Union
>Defected in France; led the manhunt for Bazhanov before defecting
>First tried to kayak across the Black Sea; defected in Brussels, Belgium; later discovered alpha decay via quantum tunneling
let's not forget Ayn Rand either who as a qt 20 year old literally went from totalitarian Stalinist Russia to New York and Hollywood at the height of the roaring 20s. No wonder she had a unique insightful perspective of humanity.
The war crimes committed by CNT and other Republican militias are well documented, and it includes plenty of rapes, summary executions, torture, vandalism, and looting not only against clergy, but also against civilians who refused to cooperate with them (not even necessarily Nationalists, don't forget the Republicans committed suicide through infighting) and Nationalist POWs.
Even George Orwell, the avowed anti-totalitarian socialist, ended up loathing the anarchists and communists alike because of how they more or less divided their time equally between shitting in their own trenches, and fighting one another for allegedly being 'counter-revolutionaries.'
she literally brought nothing of use to the economical discussion, her critics of socialism are empty husks and she contributed nothing to capitalist thought either. what a useless jew.
The Mensheviks were more tolerant in terms of cooperating with other political factions. The ideological split with the Bolsheviks occurred because the Mensheviks believed in the necessity of society undergoing a capitalist phase (which they saw in the February Revolution), while the Bolsheviks believed you could drive straight to Socialism if you just tried super hard.
In practice, this translated to the Mensheviks being more willing to work together with liberal factions and opposing 'hasty' actions like the October Revolution, while the Bolsheviks only paid lip-service to working alongside fellow Socialists and tried their damndest to consolidate power ASAP.
Both sides were quite thoroughly against anti-Semitism, at least in the Party line. Many prominent revolutionaries were Jews, after all. Of course, that didn't stop common grunts from launching pogroms if they got the chance to.
It's actually a poster for a cigarette brand, of all things. The big blue ribbon says the company's name: 'A.N. Bogdanov & Co.' and that it's based in St. Petersburg. The writing on the life preserver states the prices for different products.
there's literally zero evidence for the rapes
>"as far as my purely personal preferences went I would have liked to hoin the anarchists." - George Orwell
to be fair though this is a propaganda thread, so right wing propaganda is allowed
I love this for a couple of things, but the main one is that, this being a poster to increase japanese migration to Brazil, they don't acknowledge Acre as part of Brazil, which it already was at the time.
And the face on this jap is really amusing.
> there's literally zero evidence for the rapes
> Look mom I can cherry-pick quotes
Orwell left Spain thoroughly disillusioned with basically every political faction on the Peninsula. Getting shot at by your 'allies' on the battlefield and being threatened with execution on multiple occasions does that to a man. Admittedly, he probably hated the anarchists the least, but that's because they weren't industrial murder-machines like the Communists and more so a happy-go-lucky mob trying to have fun before reality crashed the party.
Brazillian WW2 poster. That nazi sub is meant to be the one that allegedly sunk Brazillian merchant ships.
the music will take a long ass time, so if you don't want it just check the posters.
Just happy to be killing some nazis.
Amusingly Brazil was under a quasi fascist dictatorship.
White Russians, Red Russians, and...Brazil all going head-to-head in the thread tonight.
Considering two dictatorships totalling some 35 years, it is amazing how little Brazillian propaganda posters one can find.
this is my favorite, I have been called out a shill many times for posting this on /pol/.
they made all the religions illegal. Judaism was quite a bit more divisive than the other religions.
This poster is particularly brutal.
Don't worry European allies, we are going to help fight as well, from across the ocean don't worry it is cool.
Religion varied from being openly oppressed to just taboo in the Soviet Union over the course of the 20th century.
Compared to the Russian Christian Orthodox though, the Jews got off comparatively lightly because they weren't associated with the Old Regime (quite the opposite, in fact) and there really wasn't enough of them to constitute an existential threat in the same way that existed for Christianity or Islam.
Notice how our flag is right next to the USA. That is just how much we helped I swear.
Is that Stalin's enormous fuck tube in some kind of un-mantletted ISU-152 that they're kneeling down in as if in prayer?
If so, why is he loading instead of driving?
Why is he dressed as a rifleman?
Why is she in a mixed gender tank crew?
Where is the fucking breach block?
Where are the fucking sights?
Does anyone know if the Soviets also had to about-face in their propaganda on their Capitalist allies and do shit like this?
>they made all the religions illegal.
The Russians stopped persecuting Christians pretty early, but that's likely because there were a lot more Crypto-Christians and they posed a bigger threat than Jews could.
they don't appear to be.
>why is he loading instead of driving
there is nowhere to drive to. they have secured a post and they shoot from it
>why is he dressed as a rifleman
to appraise the average army-man, who happened to be a rifleman.
>why is she in a mixed gender tank crew
reserves were pretty low desu, and the USSR wasn't fidgety about deploying women
>Where is the fucking breaching block
I am not well versed enough in fuck tubes to answer this question
>where are the fucking sights
artist probably never saw a proper fuck tube in his life.
If it wasn't for Brazillian rubber you would all be speakning German right now.
The day Sao Paulo got btfo by Vargas is still a state holiday there.
WE PLANT LIFE!
plan for the afforestation of the marshy scrub
[script:] [too small, I'd like to think it reads Red Leningrad]
[bg:] pine seed
TWO WORLDS - TWO PLANS
map of military bases
[script:] new military prescriptions
THEY SOW DEATH!
>stopped persecuting christians pretty early
because they broke down on the preachers and the religious institutions. Stalin even went so far as to kick out Christians from the central comittee
Giant hands are really popular in propaganda
A horse lying down is a more difficult target to hit and less likely to bolt, it just so happens that you lying down behind it puts a whole lot of meat and bone between you and Kraut bullets...
That is right kids, not only Santa is actually Brazillian, he is also a fascist.
You stupid fuck this is a white reactionary propaganda poster:
Bunda: Polish communist party
Bolsh: Bolshevik RSFSR
SD: Social Democrats (Menshevik RSFSR)
SR: Social Revolutionaries (Agrarian centrists, in "revolutionary" terms)
Kar S: No idea, any ideas?
a beautiful propaganda poster.
I think it says let life live
>you'll never die for mother Germania
You're mostly correct, but the Bund was actually a Jewish union/political party.
The 'Kar S' (actually Nar. S.)is short for the National Socialists. Not the Nazis mind you, this was way before them, but a minor socialist political party.
Except the crushing external debt
I'd vote for him, if he didn't cancel the elections.
here is an upload of 500 posters. the other 500 are too high-res and therefore too big to upload. Maybe another day.
fuck you cuckchan. replace DOTS with . and remove the .
This is a picture in Wikipedia:EU-Russian relationships. Fatherland Completed.
should I keep posting?
really hate how I can post only one image at a time.
they are conveying a red army soldier stopping a fascist murdering a baby in it's crib.
Don't know about the soviets, but the chetniks did that to croat families and ustashe did it to serb families.
heres a new one for you. it walks and talks all on its own.
most powerful leftist subversion tool ever created. Even more so than the tv, because its a two way interaction.
It looks like everyone would be black too.
I just used waifu2x to increase the resolution. This is so cool I almost want to get it printed.
this is a good thread and I dont want to ruin it. SO I apologize, and Ill stop. But it would be remiss not to include just a FEW from today
While I hate Communists, Bolshevists, and Reds of all stripes, Soviet propaganda posters are top-tier utopianism.
Pity that reality did not actually reflect the idealism expressed in their warm welcoming posters of solidarity and brotherhood among workers.
Not quite propaganda, rather just battle drawings, but I think they're really interesting nonetheless and fit this thread.
Artist is Leonid Perfetsky and period is 1917-1921, Ukrainian War for Independence.
Black Division's Artillery Enters Kiev
Black Division's Cossacks Attack an Armored Train
Capture of Kiev Arsenal
Arsenal is actually the name for the factory where a large Bolshevik uprising broke out.
Student Squad Defends the Kruty Station
Literally student squad, basically schoolboys with rifles.
Battle of Chortkiv
That's against Poles again.
Black Division Drops Russian Flag in Recaptured Kiev
The city had a symbolic meaning for basically all parties so it was a constant target.
Raise of Ukrainian Navy Flag at Black Sea Fleet, 29th of April, 1918
Ukrainian control over Black Sea fleet is quite an elusive subject. It definitely happened but no photographs of the ships flying the colors have surfaced.
In the Rectangle of Death
It's probably my favorite picture. Rectangle refers to Poles, Romanians, White Russians and Red Russians - all hostile to some degree.
>Orwell left Spain thoroughly disillusioned with basically every political faction on the Peninsula.
No, Orwell lit the fuck out because the Communists were liquidating people left right and centre.
>Admittedly, he probably hated the anarchists the least
He didn't hate the anarchists at all, and continued to write in glowing terms about the promise he felt was shown both by the communes and the revolutionary spirit among eg the POUM troops.
When Der Feuhrer says "vee is the master race"!
Artist took a lot of creative liberty with the flag, or maybe just didn't know how it looked like exactly.
>No wonder she had a unique insightful perspective of humanity.
I had seen this one but not sure if legit though
Yeaaaah...that poster could be misinterpreted.
