Right now, with the presidential election only weeks away, the country is suffering from a massively uncomfortable case of agitprop (ah-jiht-prop).
Agitprop is also known as propaganda. It is propaganda that agitates, or stirs up, thus it is agit(ating)prop(aganda).
This practice started with the Communist Party in the Soviet Union, but is is full swing today in the United States where both the Republicans and the Democrats are doing everything in their power to destroy one another.
Agitprop is generally used in art and literature, such as the above poster.

I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
