The amount of facebook tier memes I've seen recently that boil down to "Critical thinking is stupid! Be cool like me and mindless accept whatever you're told." is really starting to aggravate me. It's just so blatant, and also so normie. It feels like culture is swinging hard against me again.

It also surreally puts me in the shoes of a revolutionary commie complaining about boot licking.

Such a strange and disgusting feeling.

It's because the most hardcore lefties project all of their insecurities and failings on other people.

You feel disgusting because the brainwashed masses accuse you every day of doing what they do.

That and everything that someone might find humorous, someone else might find offensive, and since the Left is so fucking obsessed with never offending anyone (who isn't on the Left), they are incapable of using or understanding actual humor.

Leftists "makes" memes?

Worse? How could they be getting worse? Extending their misinterpretation of Popper's Paradox of Tolerance from a five page comic to a ten page comic?

No it's almost the opposite. The wordiness was always a way to justify illogical positions, but now they've decided to try a new tactic and just deride logic itself.

Think about anything for more than 2 seconds? Lol conspiracy theorist.

Do any research? Lol you're not at expert, don't you know experts have already come to the correct conclusion. If you realized how stupid you were you'd know that it's impossible for you to even comprehend this situation.

That kind of thing. Is it projection? Probably. But it's so basic and malicious that I don't understand why normies wouldn't call them out. It's not like they're hiding their point behind a wall of text like usual. Just covid paranoia.

left memes are completely based off of their politics which is the only thing they think about every day

stuff that was born from non-lefty origins can be fucking god tier and original, politics or not: https://imgur.com/a/csXE2uL

also, i fucking hate that 'based' is now used by people who justified the riots last year or some gay shit like that

This Vertigo Politix video is a bit old but it goes over it well.

The left/progressives can only either "joke" about their ideology which basically acts as an infodump about how they are right and everybody else is wrong, or they need to be approved to laugh at a joke otherwise they may be attacked for enjoying something offensive or problematic.

This means their memes are either unfunny and target that extreme idological niche, or unfunny and extremely watered down to the point that they are nothing new. No experimentation allowed, no pushing of boundaries, because that would end up as wrongthink. Stay in your area and laugh at the acceptable material comrade.

You know leftists are bad at memes with often they try to steal memes that were originally created to mock them or simply other people's memes.

I hope not. Because that would be like dividing by zero.

It reminds me of the progression of a party scene where everyone's moved onto to private parties, then personal relations and careers, and the only people left are the blind-follower people who wonder where the party went and run around cargo-culting the party atmosphere hoping to make it come back.
