They really can't meme because they are just mean people with no sense of humor.

Their memes are just insults with no surprise insight. Their memes are not about ideas, but just personal attacks, which are only amusing to other libtards. This is why the left can't meme.

One needs a sense of humor to meme. They are essentially the modern incantation of the political cartoon. As you said, the Left have no sense of humor.

HA HA HA

"yEs wE cAN...mEmE"

Reminds me of Hillary Clinton's pathetically ridiculous "Donald ducks...his taxes!" meme that she tried to make into a thing, using the cartoon character.

The left can't meme because to create a poignant, shareable meme requires something you mentioned that leftists and liberals are completely without:

A sense of humor.

NOTHING is funny to these people except the death, pain and misery of those with whom they disagree.

Even the title and cover image of this book are all the proof you need that THE LEFT CAN'T MEME

So angry. Everything they do is so angry. And the fist!!!always with the fist 🤣😂🤣

Brew_Dude 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yeah, why the fist? Like, they're forcefully adamant about complying with government and corporations or something? Not sure.

1
CQVFEFE 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah, the fist because they're the violent hateful ones, not us. They always project.

It's also symbolic of what they want to do to society. Believe it or not, use of the closed fist is one of the ways some sadomasochistic people stuck in the anal stage, infatuated with rectums, have unsanitary, painful sex.

It can be viewed as a dominance and submission exercise. Symbolically, socialists always seek to dominate and control social interactions, By Any Means Necessary ("BAMN"). The fist really should have the middle finger extended.

Ya know, he could've just made a meme to prove us wrong.

Instead he wrote a book.

How I imagine a Left Wing "How to Meme" Book reads...

Step 1. Make sure there is at least a paragraph of snarky, regurgitated msm "facts"

Step 2. Some kind of fist

Step 3. No laughing! This isn't funny. Memes are meant to be informative. If you think living in a patriarchal white supremacist cis driven Christian terrorist Country is funny then you are not an ally and should be sent straight to gulag.

Step 4. After you post your meme stay in the comments and act extremely condescending to anyone with an opposing viewpoint. Tell them how many college degrees you have and make fun of their lack of programming.

Nothing I enjoy more than a wall of text on my memes, that have been digitally compressed and almost unreadable.

The fact that the author couldn't even come up with an original meme for the cover doesn't bode well for the rest of the book.

Ability to effectively meme requires one simple thing that lefties do not have - TRUTH....the truth does not require a paragraph of gaslighting and word-twisting to explain, it is simply what it is, the truth

Some funny troll reviews on this one:

“ Beware of unintended consequences Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2018 I bought this book for my wife’s son with the hope that he would find leftist politics to be “cool” and “edgy”, but it’s had the exact opposite effect. You see, we’re a progressive family, and I didn’t want my stepson to be infected by the hateful ideas of the alt right. Well let me tell you, I don’t know what’s in this book but Jamal’s behavior since reading it has been disappointing to say the least. He recently asked me to buy him books written by world renowned FASCISTS like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson. Yesterday, he called me a “normie” and openly mocked me for browsing my absolute favorite website, Reddit. I don’t get it. I never should have bought this book.”

freeDacian 5 points ago +5 / -0

rofl they are so dumb this is preposterous

Their memes show that they are brainwashed useful on mainstream false narrative false truths that is why they are not resonating with people - because hey are false, their truths are made up in some think tank not by real people.

That is also why our memes are resonating with people wordwide. Memes are digital versions of street posters or grafitty

Kunkussion 3 points ago +3 / -0

Let me tell you why the "left" REALLY can't meme..

The internet in all its chaos and unfiltered ways (beyond educational resources such as DISCUS and basic internet chat rooms and programs) during the late 90s and early 2000's was for the most part only attractive to independent minded and curious individuals, whether they were 12 year olds still in middle school looking up cheat codes or 35 year old DOS-era programmers and tech geeks. The majority of people had no interest AT ALL in delving into the endless pathways through the internet. They were even intentionally ignorant to it to some degree. This small subset of people created a sort of "internet culture", which became more and more organized on topic enthusiasts and video games forums hosted by vBulletin and imageboards like halfchan and such. As it expanded in all its chaotic directions, one thing was always prevalent; freedom of speech and often intelligent, unobstructed discourse (unless you started doxxing or posting illegal things). Of course, "shitposting" became more common as well, which not only had this "digital-emotional development" impact to it that matured us in a strange way, but it also built character and helped people understand the difference between real and fake discourse. As time progressed, this culture would gain massive amounts of knowledge and created a community that looked after one another and had respect for each other, regardless of disposition. The point was to enjoy the community we had, so before the word "meme" was even born, there were various images with subtext that became a simple yet hilarious method of conveying a statement (advice dog, shoop da woop, "a series of tubes", EFG (epic fail guy), Millhouse (which is STILL NOT A MEME) etc.) that became its own sort of popular culture that no one outside of the internet could comprehend or understand. This was the internet in its golden age, and one I know many dearly miss.

Then, a technology that almost destroyed the infinite gift of knowledge we worked so hard to build came along; the smartphone. Now, everyone and their mother could access the internet.. but this version of the internet wasn't the "internet" we developed. This version was the opposite of what we had pioneered; an obnoxious, ignorant minded and selfish outlet for pessimistic and immature individuals. A place where if you didn't get along with the corporate status quo, you got doxxed, harassed, fired from your job and even censored. "Social media" was the new "internet", and to this day, if you ask anyone what the "internet" is, you are very likely to hear them name off social media applications like facebook, reddit and twitter. The controlled subset of discourse that we have now has completely decimated our kinship to our fellow neighbor and family, and has allowed tyrants to manipulate entire populations against themselves. That's not the internet. That is the conduit of evil and psychological control.

Did people use social media before smartphones and access the internet for other purposes besides boasting about their "booster" shots and showing off their "luxuries" trying to act like celebrities? Of course, but not in the magnitude that it became after the smartphone came along. Once we were called "nerds", "geeks" and "losers", but soon we would be called "alt-right", "racists" and "conspiracy theorists". Within not even two decades, the internet changed from the utopia of free thought to the remote controlled apparatus of slavery.

With all that said, what does that have to do with the leftist mindset not being able to meme? It's simple. The newcomers to the internet didn't even exist when the "meme" culture was born. They have no idea the intricacy of the controlled chaos that the old guard brought into fruition. The point of memetics is to bring information in subcontext while displaying humor in an unapologetic and bold fashion. When you invite emotions into a space that has no regard for emotion, of course you're going to be upset and offended. Without spilling out too much further, that's the gist of it. Their image matters more on the internet than the discussion, so its a projection of selfishness and idolatry in its most primal sense. They will never be able to meme.

Sociopaths have no empathy and therefore little feeling for anything else. For them, life is all about taking and not giving. Giving is for the weak and stupid, like us.

Sociopaths are infamous for creating nothing; for producing nothing; for building nothing. That's because creativity comes from giving, but all they do is take from those who do create. Like pirates. Or the Mongol Hordes.

This is why the Left can't meme. They do not possess the empathy, and therefore the creativity, to meme.

Some sociopaths and narcissists are fairly good at mimicking - at copying - other artists. That's why, when they scream about wanting "diversity" in movies, plays, books, etc., you do not see them creating original works that have what they want to see.

Instead, they take existing works and bend and twist them. For just one example, there was no new play written about a lovable orphan from some non-represented group. No, they take a classic like Annie and force changes into it that it was never meant to have. And when that doesn't work, it's because everyone is racist.

Let me know when these people start creating original works and characters featuring all this diversity they say they want. It hasn't happened yet.

I went to amazon to look inside the book. The first page says "Nope. No you can't. The Left can't meme." The next 5 pages say "Kek." And then the "instruction" begins.

In the description it says, " A Left Wing guide on how to defeat troublesome trolls and 'memelords' who stand against everything progressive. This book will show you how to fight fire with fire and defeat 'Kekistan' once and for all. This is a lesson in 'meming' for all right minded thinkers. No longer will we have to listen to mockery about how weak our memes are. This book is satirical and is meant as a joke. There are eight words on the first page, a fake quote on the last and a bunch of 'keks' in between. It is intended as a gift for humourless, regressive leftists from sensible people who understand internet culture on even the most basic level."

Neat!

Every single meme of theirs that I've seen, without fail, has at least 3 paragraphs of some garbled woke speak with no punctuation, no commas, no periods, just one giant run-on sentence about how white men are the root problem of everything and how being gay is the bravest thing a person can do. Without fail they are all like this.
