United States The Left Can't Meme

I genuinely don't feel like that one's a bad meme though. Overly wordy, perhaps, but it does get its message across.
Yeah, but it’s not really, you know… funny.

I get there are decent memes out there that are more “insightful” than humorous, but having the full trifecta — brevity, humor, and of course, truthful insight — remains the gold standard. Not that the Right always pulls that off, either, but still an objective that this meme falls short of.

It fails on funny though, and it isn't even trying to be. It's not a meme in any real sense. It's an advertisement or propaganda post. (Assuming you mean this one?)
Another "GOP bad!" one:

But then, I don't know that it's even trying to be a meme. Sometimes people just post quotes. A quote != a meme, and that's fine, it doesn't have to be.

Eh, that’s true.

Just thought that, so long as we were broadening the definition of memes beyond just humorous GIFs or pictures with captions to include Twitter posts and the like, I should post this one, as well. Bit of an overly large net we’re casting, if you ask me — but then again, I’m not the OP.

A lot of leftist memes are just retarded bait/jokes made to spam 4chan with. I dunno if the people spamming it are paid to do it, or if they just like getting off on annoying people. But I'm not convinced they're sincere at all.

A lot are 100% serious and hilarious in how unaware they are, but the 'lmao literal paragraphs of text' are 90% jokes about leftist memes.
This one for example, just complete and utter transparent bait, leftists love their buzzwords but this is the whole damned beehive.

It's the usual mix of strawmen, out and out lies and fantasy. Also gotta love the casual cringy atheism.

That's the thing, it's all of them rolled up into a single meme. Lefties can't meme for shit, but they're not THAT on the nose.
I've seen it posted a billion times on 4chan and it's never posted sincerely. Its just there to eat up space on the page and piss you off.
Edit: It'd be like a 'right wing meme' including every right-wing buzzword under the sun, is that possible? Sure. But 99% it's going to be a shitpost.

That was amazing, the bald eagle headed beings were hilarious. I don't watch much Chinese propaganda so I don't know how common that is, but I thought it was novel and funny.

Those who yell the loudest about how they don't want war are usually the warmongers. Peaceful people don't see the need to go around waxing poetic on how peaceful they are.

Chinese propaganda is a really crazy trip. That's actually... pretty normal from what I've seen.

Here we have a fine example that a couple of leftist meme failings at once. Too freakin' long because they lack self-restraint, using Conservative Man and Trad Woman to represent the left, and Soyjak to represent the right rather than anything original (Which wrecks the meme something fierce since the symbolism of each side like the traditional dress, beard, and glasses are reversed from which group would actually wear them). And of course, we get a "subtle" Nazi reference because there's always one.
I think that's kinda silly. Wearing glasses or having a beard doesn't really have much to do with politics in my experience. Especially the glasses.

Though, 90% of people wearing a traditional dress like that are gonna be hardcore fundie cons.

Lol no. Liberal vs. Conservative fashion is totally a thing, as is political facial hair.

The first is about clothes, not glasses or facial hair.

The second is Salon and is talking about Duck Dynasty, not sure how that's a legit statistical source, though there probably are more bearded conservatives than liberals - though I wouldn't tend to assume someone's politics based off of just a beard.

This feels like a really silly conversation to have though.

When it comes to beard I forget the study but it was found that the more men work in male dominated spaces the more likely it is for them to grow out their facial hair. when questioned on it females were generally indifferent or did not like facial hair. the conclusion would likely be that either men grow out their beards because they like it or to show that they are masculine to other guys.

I think if the leftists ever got what they actually wanted it would be fourth reich but with some weird justifications for genociding all the minorities like to "protect" them or some such crazy shit.

Either that, or Soviet Union 2, Massacre Boogaloo.

It's not like the pattern of repetition is hard to see.

*Eyes the USSR deporting and genociding ethnic minorities, despite promising universal brotherhood five minutes earlier.* :oops:

Unfortunately, you may be onto something, at least insofar as the especially Woke fanatics who’d no doubt climb their way to the top of a mountain of corpses and shunt more naive, but misinformed everyday Leftists who believe in “Truth and Reconciliation!” aside. In practice, I expect them to be crazy enough to start a regime less akin to Stalinist Russia… and more like Papa Doc’s Haiti or Khmer Rouge Cambodia on a way larger scale. Or, perhaps some gender-nonconfirming hybrid of the two, in keeping with the Left’s trademark druthers these days.

Would probably be Francisco Nguema a self proclaimed "Hitlerian Marxist". Given the lefts war on reality and sanity, he seems to be the most likely outcome of where they are headed.

It is it Władimir Bukowski,soviet dissident,for some time could go to Kremlin Archives in Jelcyn times.
He discovered,that leftist from EU was talking with soviets about creating new socialist state.
And it would happen,if not for Reagan.

Germans try again after 1999 with Putin,but thanks to his stupidity it not worked,too.

So,If Europe survive,we should erect monuments of people who made it possible - Reagan and Putin.
