Squealer (Animal Farm)

Squealer is one of the pigs in George Orwell's Animal Farm. He was likely modeled after Vyacheslav Molotov, who was a protégé of Joseph Stalin.

Squealer was the primary propagandist for the pigs who had taken power, and was known for his strong oratory skills and ability to argue that black is white and white is black. His skills were used to support the pigs and their lavish lifestyle at the expense of the other animals doing the actual work.
