Tokyo Rose Other women who, separately or together, may have warranted the title include American Ruth Hayakawa (who substituted for Iva on weekends) and Canadian June Suyama ("The Nightingale of Nanking"), who also broadcast on Radio Tokyo, and Myrtle Lipton ("Little Margie"), who broadcast from Japan-controlled Radio Manila. What was the purpose?
Propaganda is a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large numbers of people. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or gives loaded messages in order to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the cognitive narrative of the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda.
Hanoi Hanna. Trịnh Thị Ngọ was born in Vietnam in 1931 . During the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s she became known by American soldiers as "Hanoi Hannah" for broadcasting North Vietnamese propaganda to American troops. Her broadcasts attempted to convince U.S. troops to desert . She made three broadcasts a day, reading the list of the newly killed or imprisoned Americans, attempting to persuade American GIs that the American involvement in Vietnam was unjust and immoral and played popular American anti-war songs in an attempting to persuade American GIs that the American involvement in Vietnam was unjust and immoral and played popular American anti-war songs in an attempt to incite feelings of nostalgia and homesickness amongst American GIs. The broadcasts were widely derided by the troops, and there is no evidence that the propaganda had any effect. Below is an excerpt from one of her broadcasts:
How are you, GI Joe? It seems to me that most of you are poorly informed about the going of the war, to say nothing about a correct explanation of your presence over here. Nothing is more confused than to be ordered into a war to die or to be maimed for life without the faintest idea of what's going on. (Hanoi Hannah, 16 June 1967)
The devil still has Hanoi Hannas and Yokio Roses in this world and their sole purpose is to discourage, deceive and defeat. There are many of them in the spiritual world as well and there soul purpose is to confuse, discourage and defeat. Their main mission is make the Army quit and therefore defeat the purpose of Christ and His Army standing for righteousness in the wicked world. To cripple the Army of God and render them useless is the objective. There strategy is still the same as was Tokio Rose and Hanoi Hanna. To lie and mislead with the appearance of a loving attitude. Beware
24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died-more than that, who was raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
