Many right-wingers argue that "the left can't meme". And unfortunately, I have to agree. Leftism requires intellectual acuity for one to understand most of the theory, and due to the more complex undertones of socio- and economic-leftist work, leftist memes have to contain more information that the average right-wing meme. For example, there are thousands upon thousands of "Feminist getting triggered" compilations on the YouTube, with the same exact points and jokes. Why are there so many? You would be hard pressed to find a leftist meme that has been overused so. It's because the right memes by taking a statistic, like 14% of blacks commit 88% of rapes or whatever, and then pare it down into an easily repeatable mantra, 1488. Then this is repeated ad-infinitum, first conceived on alt-right breeding grounds such as 4chan, and then shitted into the mouth of consecutively-more-normie social media sites until the meme becomes gospel, until one need not even say the word, one can just put a picture that is tangentially related to such, and boom. Your meme has been added to the dictionary of internet memes, and now anyone and everyone knows what you mean.

I say it's time for the leftists to put down their books and brains and learn from this barbarian tactic of dummifying your praxis until any street-shitting retard can understand what you mean.

But which statistic should the left meme?

There's the 41% for the trannies, or the 97% for the women. I think 97% is more viable as a meme since if you talk about trannies much of the woke left would run for their dilators instead of proliferating the meme across social media.

What should it be lads?

"Despite being 51% of the population, 97% of females have been sexually assaulted."

Is it good? Can the left meme now?

"Conservatives are dumb because they're dumb lol"

Thats what left wing memes boil down to.

Thats why they can't, and will never be able to, meme.
They'd be funnier if this was true. The issue with leftists is that they're overly mindful, and humour inherently relies on an edge. That's why tankies are so funny, they're less concerned about being compassionate to the mentally retarded and more concerned about putting said mental retards into prison camps.

Look, why do you still not get this? It's not because it was repeated. Left wing memes get repeated too. It's because they are repeated AND true AND make people lose their shit.

It wasn't 14/88, btw, it was 13/50. And it was funny as fuck because the FBI went on to say that the stats were accurate AND it is racist to say 13/50. So it's not just about saying something that is true, but saying something that is true and makes people lose their shit. That's why it works.

it's because it lacks edge, that's it.

There's nothing edgy about being against police brutality or rape or racism. The establishment has co-opted many of the beliefs of the Left to insulate themselves from criticism, resulting in a unholy hybrid between rightwing authority (police brutality, etc.) and left wing academia (trans rights, minority representation, etc.)

That's why every left wing meme feels hallow and misses the point, because there is absolutely no edge to saying "punch a nazi" or "_ says trans rights!" It all just ends up as Marge posting about respecting feelings and hating hate.

If you want good examples of how the Left can meme look to CumTown

A friend of mine tried to show me a video of some dude typing up typical paragraphs-long lefty screeds on videos of conservative politicians calling them every braindead unfunny insult they could manage and used it as an example of how "the left can meme" and I just didn't have the heart to tell him.

"Overly mindful" is a nice way of saying "uptight, humorless, and perpetually offended at basically everything." Face it, you've whittled down the categories of things you can makes jokes about to borderline fucking nothing and cancel mobs come for anyone on the left who tries to reverse this trend. If you want to be funny again, you're going to have to make peace with the notion that your own sacred cows are also going to be the target of mockery from time to time.

Imo "the left can't meme" is just a simpler way of saying "neolibs can't meme." Right-wing boomers (who also can't meme) are neolibs too, they just hold next to zero political power, so naturally, the attention is going to fall onto the young leftists who do hold political power. Neolibs can't meme because humor is inseparable from culture. Neoliberalism is the antithesis of culture since the moderate neolib (in the US Republicans) disregard the culture, and the extreme neolibs (in the US Democrats) despise the culture.
you fucking retard lol
14 = the 14 words "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children"
88 = 8th word in the alphabet is H = HH= Heil Hitler
13/50 = Africans are 13% of the population but commit about 50% of the murders

Nah, twitter commies and other leftists are the same. E.g., this should reasonably be a shitpost thread for the most part and yet you've typed out this longwinded, academically worded response.
