Leftist Memes - Or lack thereof...

Some one tell these people that "leftist retread" is just supposed to be a lame boomer cliche.


"More words make it absurdist bro, it's funny!"


I think we've been going about this all wrong leftist memes aren't supposed to spread information or be funny. They are in-group signals designed to "take the temperature" to see if the posters opinions are still in consensus with the group. If you get pushback you can just say "It's absurdist bro" "I'm just parodying the expectations of the bourgeois bro!".

Firstly, is this meme saying that women of color are genetically predisposed to becoming mothers earlier and having more children so that needs to be dealt with via abortion? Leftist/alt-right solidarity ahoy!

Secondly, who the fuck is the guy in this image? Kim Il Sung? Pol Pot?

Bioshock 1 isn't really political though
Did you forget the intro
I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question.

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?
'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.'
'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.'
'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.'

I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different.
I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture.
A city where the artist would not fear the censor.
Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality.
Where the great would not be constrained by the small!

And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.

"It's Le Funny Man. Whatever meme you put it on is automatically funny chud."
This is why I say left memes are just signaling. No attempt to have a wider audience it's just "I know a thing, do you know a thing too?"

The most memorable part of the game? Obviously not.

I already addressed this in my initial post, but really just compare Bioshock 1's writing to Infinite and you'll see the difference. 1 is about the illusion of choice in games, not Objectivism, though I'll concede that yes, it does have politics in there, but it's just to serve as world-building. Meanwhile Infinite is about... well among the many things it's about, racism is one of them and it's very preachy and on-the-nose about it till the point where it makes me want to buy some slaves out of spite.

It also explains all the leftist memes that are nothing but recitations of chunks of Marxist lingo.

Not only is there no joke, no normal person, especially no normal millennial/zoomer, talks like this. This is someone reciting something they read somewhere without putting enough thought into it to put it in their own words.

It would be like if right wing memers just spammed random images with the 14 words or quotes from Evola on them. The closest I can think of to that is fashwave memes, but fashwave memes at least have thought put into the imagery to facilitate the message, the quotes are carefully chosen for modern relevance, and it's all presented in a way that a normie can easily comprehend. These kind of leftie "memes" are just random pictures coupled with random Marxist jargon that will have the uninitiated completely fucking baffled.

Like what is this image supposed to be saying? Is the production of commodities ceasing to exist supposed to be a good thing? Is the creator making fun of the idea that the production of commodities will cease to exist under socialism by... implying that a little anime Pokemon trainer girl is thinking it? Nevermind that there's no fucking joke, what's the fucking message?

It's also worth noting that far right wingers generally consider these types of memes cringy and more than a little passe at this point. If you post some "this is what they took from us" type stuff you're going to get laughed at and even that is orders of magnitude higher effort than this left stuff.

OK, let's say Canada annexed those states. We now have the United Socialist States of Canada and "Jesusland". All the Lefties flock to Canuckistan and all the Conservatives move to "fly-over country". Canada gets its socialism, healthcare for all (which it already has and is shit), Hollywood, some tech companies, all the cities with the highest crime rates, all the illegal immigrants they want, and all the people who are happy to live their lives on welfare. What's left of the US gets to finally secure the borders, gets to streamline government, do away with social programs, get rid of the restrictions on drilling for oil/digging for coal/building nuclear powerplants/manufacturing/etc., and finally get rid of draconian gun control laws.

Big companies will choose "Jesusland" because they won't be taxed into oblivion to pay for social programs and can actually afford to manufacture things again. Unemployment and crime rates go down. Everything becomes more affordable. The lower class will virtually be eliminated. Everyone has more money. The US becomes energy independent. Everyone speaks the same language. Criminals and drugs are no longer flowing over the border. We still have our military, Disneyworld, Las Vegas, and all the best national parks. Anyone can own whatever guns they want (I really want an M240LW and one of those Knight's Armament belt-feds). We still have all the food production, with less mouths to feed.

Meanwhile Canada will be struggling to feed everyone, their taxes will skyrocket, their unemployment and crime rates will increase exponentially, and they'll have more and more people flooding their borders from around the world to get free shit. They won't be manufacturing anything, exporting anything, and will struggle to keep their lights on, houses warm, and people fed. They will mostly be reliant on imports for food, oil, materials, and goods. They'll allow anyone and everyone to come there, because they don't want to be racist, so they'll be dealing with illegal drugs, disease, and crime. Within a decade becomes a Third World country.

You know what? Let's do it! I'm 100% on board with this plan. Give me my machine guns, Bible, low taxes, and cheap oil, and the pinko Lefties can have their multicultural, economically equal, environmentally friendly, all-inclusive Socialist Utopia.

My favourite part of this is that they obviously saw the original and were so buttblasted they had to make their own, even less funny version based on it
A couple of the lines on this are actually funny though. The first one doesn't even attempt to tell a joke.

Anyway, here's a meme about leftist memes:

Is this how the Soviet Union fell?
that would make sense since marxist astrology is an oxymoron. marxism is strictly atheist materialist. you shouldn't even focus on moral content when conducting marxist analysis(except the material consequences of morality *actually impacting the actual world*).

as far as religious people 'using' marxism, IIRC some of the early intellectuals in the jihadi-movement used marxism to formulate some of their guerilla tactics and propaganda(the jihadis originally came from the national socialist Ba'ath party which included Saddam Hussein and they were all natsoc-pilled arabz back in the day), but i don't think this girl and her fellow "anarcho-astrologers" are making revolution any time soon.
