(Tea Party 247) – The world is a ruthless, cold, place with lots of meanies everywhere who want to say offensive, hurtful things that could absolutely leave your mental health destroyed. On top of that, there’s so much fake news being spread everywhere, folks are being lied to and having their choices about who to vote for made for them.
Why, it’s like someone else is going to polls and casting votes in their name without their say so. If only there were folks who would be willing to trample on the Constitution and the principles of free speech that have made America the greatest nation on earth, all for the sake of protecting us from ingesting false news stories.
Wait…Instagram has taken up the cause? Our savior has come!
Apparently, Instagram decided that a meme posted on their social media platform about Hillary Clinton killing Jeffrey Epstein needed to be “fact-checked.” Thank goodness for these folks stepping up to the plate to save us all from having a sense of humor.
Here’s more from Summit News:
Instagram ‘fact-checked’ and censored a clearly satirical meme that joked about Hillary Clinton being responsible for the death of Jeffrey Epstein.
The meme, posted by street artist Lushsux, features images of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
“I killed Saddam Hussein!” says Bush.
“I killed Osama Bin Laden!” Says Obama.
“I killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!” says Trump.
“I killed Jeffrey Epstein!” says Clinton.
Instagram responded by blurring out the image and slapping it with a ‘fact-check’ that read, “False: There’s no evidence Hillary Clinton killed Jeffrey Epstein. It runs counter to medical examiner and federal prosecutor conclusions.”
Users have to click to see the post after reading the ‘fact-check’.
As we highlighted yesterday, Instagram also ‘fact-checked’ and censored a meme about Greta Thunberg as well as a totally non-political post.
Earlier this year, the Facebook-owned social media giant said would rely on 52 global “fact checking partners” to censor “false photos and memes on its platform,” according to Poynter.
Studies show that memes were instrumental in helping Donald Trump build online momentum to win the 2016 presidency and that the most successful memes originated in two places – 4chan and The Donald subreddit.
Common sense also shows that the left can’t meme, so it makes far more sense just to ban memes.
The fact that Mark Zuckerberg directed his companies to ‘fact-check’ memes also underscores how much of a joyless, fun-hating cretin he truly is.
Liberals are proving more and more by the day that they are a truly miserable lot who are completely devoid of any sort of actual sense of humor. It’s tragic, really, to see so many folks living such joyless lives.
It seems pretty obvious just from looking at the meme that it’s a joke. Sure, there might be a little truth spoken in jest, but for the most part, it’s posted just for a lark. If people are getting their news from memes, we as a society have truly fallen to the lowest depths we possibly can before utter cultural collapse.
Let’s hope the good folks at Instagram wake up and smell the coffee on this and realize how absurd it was to fact check a meme.
