The fact that you linked infowars immediately made me not want to read anymore. Sorry bud but that’s the way it is with me. Maybe take that out and then I will give this a chance.




Not everything he says is wrong...

Is that the alarm clock I heard this morning...I know it wasn't mine, since I've decided to sleep through the next election cycle.

I think you may be right...

Maybe there's a meme I could use. Won't, as I hate the bloody things, but I could...

I recall when the leftists were so busy telling those of us on the more right leaning side of the spectrum, that we only wished we had a sense of humor. I believe this was circa Obama or maybe circa Bush.

Now we have moved the point when the right leaning have started use social media and memes effectively, so now, humor has become simplistic and stupid.


I understand. I really do.

Well hell, I was saving this one, but since I don't want anyone to miss out on it because "Memes are MEAN"? Well here ya go!
It actually isn't a real meme. I got it from a very reliable anonymous source within the Democratic party that this will be their go to election meme!

Words that go on and on and on with no meaning . Follow your words to the end point that is where the answer is . Even your term progressives is false . Ive seen alot of politics in my 64 years but this progressive movement is backward . Go ahead and shut down everything you don't like . Make 8 years of garbage look as good as possible . Take others words out of text to make your point . I will live my life as far away from government , MSM , and progressives as possible .

Heck, women under 35 really are the most sensible voters though! They proved that here in Canada during the 2015 federal election when they voted for Trudeau because... he looks good. What do politics matter, right? The man looks good, folks, and women never vote with their emotions.

Following studies that proved the political right was more successful at creating and spreading memes than the left


Prove it.

And people wonder why the chasm between the left and right continues to widen. I'm convinced that various factions of right-wing extremism like the alt-right never would've existed if it weren't for fervent liberal extremism. You can only back ordinary people so far into a corner before they'll lash out in self-defense and create their own brand of extremism.




You've just described how petulant children react, adults generally just shake their heads at the nonsense and ignore it, children however generally don't have the capacity to do that...

I haven't seen such studies but it seems as though the memes from the right are much more entertaining because there is so much more material to work with. Trump topics are limited and there is so much hate and discontent from the left that they have a tough time showing a sense of humor. Trump is bad, he is a Nazi, he is this, he is that, he's to blame for the hurricane, and other such shrill outrage. They are so fixated on Trump that they pass on good material.

The right has a never ending supply of material because they are not focused on a specific target. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Corey "Spartacus" Booker, Kamala "Out-take" Harris, Schumer the Panderer, Huma and the Weiner, Bleachbit Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cacacabeza, and California Governor Moonbeam, just to name a few, provide boundless entertainment with statements and antics that beggar belief. Pictures of sleeping Bader-Ginsberg are ripe for exploitation. Leering Bill Clinton is always good; see the never ending funeral of Aretha for some of those.

Invest in popcorn. Watch the show. Ask the DNC to try to come up with a platform that doesn't consist entirely of a single "get Trump" plank and find a candidate that is more toward the middle of the political spectrum. Mad Max Waters said that if she were elected president, the first thing she would do would be to impeach Trump. You can't make this stuff up.

Ah, so will this AI/algorithm also adapt to changes in political climates?? Somehow, I doubt it.

How hard is it to scroll right on by memes? Not very, if I'm any example. I do it on a constant never ending basis.

What's "offensive" any way?? They don't ever seem to define that with any degree of certainty. Or is it one of those "I'll know it when I see it!" thingees?

Nope. People can not, apparently, be trusted to decide for themselves.

...and, yes, I know that FB is a private company that can do pretty much as they please. So don't bother telling me that.


Probably all sorts of mohammed and muslim memes while 100 jesus memes fly around and are allowed. I'm against all abrahamic religions but this islam favoritism and antichristian climate on FB is damn puzzling for me.
