    So what are your thoughts on this meme? Is it distasteful or laugh out loud funny? Better then Bowsette meme?

    They are also making fun of Nintendo Switch owners.

    "Quick, copy whatever memes the Russian bots are posting! Surely that doesn't make us the NPCs!"

    Non playing characters against trump. Ok. I think this meme is saying that if you are against trump, you are a mindless npc.

    I think that's most of the reason for it being controversial.

    I also think it's very telling that Twitter has been handing out bans for this, because it is "dehumanizing," but Farrakhan called Jews "termites" and that's okey-dokey.

    I said it was humans copying memes that the bots post, not that they were all bots.

    It's just moronic. If I had a nickle for every time a Republican was reduced to one line of dialogue, "what about Hillary," then I'd be a millionaire by now. Both sides have their derps, but Republicans will refuse to debate policy or substance far more often because Trump has neither. Memes are all they have, and it blinds them to the fact that even Donald himself is pretty much an NPC. Wake up, Tweet while shitting, watch Faux, go golfing, have a public brain fart, then go to bed while sobbing into a Big Mac.

    So if I understand the explanation correctly, right wing enthusiasts use these to point out (assumed) sheep mentality in left thinkers by reshaping their arguments into poor caricatures of representatives of left'ish ideas.

    Hmm...okay. It's not the first time I've seen right persons fall flat on their face when they attempt humor, but they're entitled to their opinion, no matter how childish.

    I think it's a good representation of what the right seems to think of the left. Might be funny to people on the right.

    I'm honestly surprised that this isn't in the EOF. Other than that, I don't really care.

    If you find it offensive because it reflects you. Good.
    If you find it inaccurate because it does not reflect you. Good.

    Hillary’s Emails

    I think they are funny too. Even some liberals are joining in the fun and poking fun at themselves. It’s the best meme i’ve seen in a while. I think it’ll top the Pepe meme. I was laughing so much in forums where everyone joins in and acts like a NPC. It’s freakin hilarious.

    I love this meme. It’s a self correcting meme.

    And people that get offended kind of proves the meme’s point. They weren’t programmed with humor. We are not there yet in technology. That’s in the next revision ver. 2.53. When we install humor.exe

    I like this one the most so far. It can apply to both the far left and far right.
