instead of “the left can’t meme” it should just be “the establishment can’t meme.” The humor in memes often relies on subversiveness and edge, its far easier to step on toes when meming from the right.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.
