Napoleon successfully creates a cult of personality, where he is portrayed as a godlike, omnipotent leader by associating himself with greatness and dramatically inflating/fabricating his accomplishments. Napoleon uses Squealer as his mouthpiece to spread propaganda and portray him in a positive light. Squealer fabricates Napoleon's performance during the Battle of the Cowshed, and Napoleon even awards himself the military decorations, "Animal Hero, First Class" and "Animal Hero, Second Class." Napoleon also takes responsibility for every accomplishment and assumes the titles "our Leader, Comrade Napoleon," "Father of All Animals," "Terror of Mankind," "Protector of the Sheep-Fold," and "Ducklings' Friend." Squealer also alters the Seven Commandments and revises history to give the impression that Napoleon is always correct. A pig named Minimus also writes a poem celebrating Napoleon, which is entitled "Comrade Napoleon" and bolsters is his popularity. Napoleon also creates the illusion that he is powerful by surrounding himself with ferocious dogs and publicly executing political dissidents. These numerous tactics establish a cult of personality surrounding Napoleon, which creates the illusion that he is omnipotent, benevolent, and dignified.
