Gadaffi propaganda clock. Made in Russia. Rare outragious propaganda clock. If you have this in your house it will drop the jaw of everybody. Crazy. Clock has been tested and runs. In very good condition.
Gadaffi (1942-2011) was a Libyan revolutionary, politician, and political theorist. He was the leader of Libya as Revolutionary Chairman of the Libyan Arab Republic from 1969 to 1977, and then as the “Brotherly Leader” of the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya from 1977 to 2011. He was initially ideologically committed to Arab nationalism and Arab socialism but later ruled according to his own Third International Theory.
When he was in the army he founded a revolutionary group which deposed the Western backed Senussi monarchy in a 1969 coup. He deported Libya’s Italian and Jewish minorities and ejected its Western military bases. He nationalized the oil industry and used the increasing state revenues for the military, fund foreign revolutionaries, and implement social programs for house building, healthcare and education projects.
In 1973, he outlined his Third International Theory that year, publishing these ideas in The Green Book.
He died in 2011 when Libya was in a civil war.

There are many different Mao Zedong clocks. This one has also been seen in a smaller version.
Adverstisement text on Propagandaworld:
“Chairman Mao Zedong Clock from the 1950’s. Bought by 1st owner now in our possession.
A great piece of old vintage. On the clock itself we see people cheering at Mao who is above them like a god. Next to Mao there is a red flag with probably a quotation of Mao.
The woman on the down right side is holding the red book. Her arm waves every second with the book.
Crazy, cool propaganda object. Looks cool in almost any household or bedroom. Definitely a conversation piece. This clock will be noticed!”
