(NaturalNews) As the fraudulent flu shot season is in full swing, retailers who profit from hawking deadly flu shots are resorting to the most bizarre and obnoxious marketing tactics yet devised to convince people to poison themselves with flu shots. As we've already documented here on NaturalNews, Walgreens stores are using incentive prizes like iPad awards for employees who push the most flu shots on customers (http://www.naturalnews.com/033859_flu_shots_Walgreens.html
A CVS pharmacy has been caught using life-sized grim reapers
to promote its own flu shot vaccines (http://www.naturalnews.com/033917_CVS_flu_shots.html
Safeway stores are announcing 10% discounts on grocery purchases for those who agree to be injected with these flu shot vaccines, which admittedly contain toxic chemical adjuvants and neurological disruptors that can cause permanent neurological damage
."Yeah, sure, I might experience random seizures and blurred vision now, but I saved 10% on my groceries!"
$500 in prizes for the winners of our flu shot propaganda photo contest!
To expose the unscrupulous propaganda and quackery of the vaccine industry -- which has devolved into a bunch of retail snake oil hucksters poisoning the public for profit -- we are launching the first ever "flu shot propaganda picture contest!"
To enter the contest, simply snap a photo of flu shot promotions you see somewhere, then email them to us at email@example.com
using the subject line "FLU SHOT PICTURE ENTRY".
The pictures must be TRUE and real -- no Photoshopped pictures are allowed, please, and no montages or other compilations. Just a real snapshot of a flu shot
advertising sign or propaganda campaign of some sort.
We will sort through all the pictures sent to us and pick the top dozen or so for a reader vote
. Then we will invite the readers to vote on their favorite pictures.
The top 3 pictures receiving the most votes win!First prize
: $250 gift certificate at the NaturalNews Store.Second prize
: $150 gift certificate at the NaturalNews Store.Third prize
: $100 gift certificate at the NaturalNews Store.
Again, to enter the contest
, just email your snapshots to firstname.lastname@example.org
and use "FLU SHOT PICTURE ENTRY" as the subject line of your email.
1) The picture must have been taken by you, not grabbed off the internet.
2) The picture must be real, not staged, and not Photoshopped beyond basic brightness and contrast adjustments.
3) Contest entries must be received by Friday, November 4, 2011.
4) No VIDEOS. This is for photos only, please. (We may do a video contest later on.)
5) The prize gift certificates are redeemable at the NaturalNews Store, and can be used to buy anything you'd like there, including items already on sale.
6) The contest is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. But the flu
shot propaganda itself needs to be in English (if there's any text in the picture).
7) You agree to allow us to publish any photo you submit. The whole point of this is to share these photos across the 'net to show how ridiculous and obnoxious the flu shot industry has become.
How to win
We are looking for the most obnoxious flu shot propaganda
you can find. The Grim Reapers holding the flu shot sign was pretty funny. Can you find something even more obnoxious?
Can you find examples of outright lies
in flu shot marketing propaganda
? (Claims that flu shots "protect you from the flu" are pure quackery, for example.)
Use your creativity! We're looking for photos that evoke a strong emotional response, either of hilarity or disgust.
There probably won't be a huge number of entries, so by submitting just one photo to us, you have a realistic chance of winning the top prizes!
Go ahead and send your entries to email@example.com
-- please LIMIT your attached photos to 10mb or smaller, or your email will automatically bounce.
We can't wait to see (and share) your photos. Thank you for participating!P.S.
If you want to be ANONYMOUS, then submit your name as ANONYMOUS with the photo. If you want name credit, then submit your name as you'd like us to credit you. We will gladly credit the winners with a name and website URL.
