Propaganda is biased information that promotes a certain political cause. It can feature people with abnormal faces or bodies and they often say something that is almost a warning but not really a warning. Propaganda can be used as something to get more people to go to a certain place or to help start a war against someone by making them out as a bad person like what Hitler did with the Jewish people.
