“NPC” Meme Sends Twitter Careenig Toward Authoritarianism

Published

Twitter

Twitter has jumped feet first into the fray surrounding the First Amendment in recent months, and, in doing so, have set some rather disturbing precedents for themselves.

Given the breadth and scope of what Twitter was originally intended to do, there is little surprise that they would find themselves in such a predicament.  After all, if you’re going to give a realtime voice to every smartphone user on the planet, you had better be prepared to sort through a whole lot of bad actors and bots in order to maintain your gravity and credibility.

The issue here is that Twitter has been erring so far over the line into political correctness that they have become far stricter and more authoritarian platform than ever imagined.

This week, for instance, Twitter created new, self-imposed rules about “dehumanization”, all thanks to a clever set of memes that portray liberals as “non player characters”, a role in video games that are often limited to repetitive, simple dialogue and actions meant to accomplish only a single task.

In the modern-day meme version, these “NPC” liberals simply repeat democratic talking points ad nauseam from behind their grey faces, angular nose, and emotionless expression.

Now, Twitter is looking to fight back against these memes on behalf of the “triggered” masses, calling these characterizations “dehumanization”.

Of course, this only set the merry memesters wild.

If we can say nothing else of the Trump Era and its effect on free speech, it sure has been interesting…if not just a bit silly at times.

Trump to ‘Lightweight’ Reporter: ‘Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way!’ — VIDEO

Tell ’em, Donald!

Donald Trump made all the moves necessary in his first term to earn another four years in the White House. Before the pandemic, the economy was soaring, unemployment hit record lows, and peace deals were made all over the globe. But the mainstream media didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them that he accomplished more in four years than most presidents could’ve dreamed in two terms. They are as disrespectful as they are ruthless. On Thanksgiving Day, POTUS had to tell off one of the far-left hacks. He said, “The whole election was a fraud. They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama inplaces that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way, you’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=I34X2PQKAA8&feature=emb_title Under Biden, America would never come first.

Multiple NFL Players Take A Knee for the National Anthem On Thanksgiving Day

Enough is enough!

The fact that sports commissioners are allowing players to turn games into messages for social justice shows exactly who is in charge – and it’s not the adults. Taking a knee during the national anthem should never be allowed, nor respected. From New York Post: “No thanks!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Trump fired off the two-word response after Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took a knee before the teams’ annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1332055759551680523 Even though these NBA players stood for a moment of silence to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, they still knelt once the Star Spangled Banner began playing. Pathetic. Enough is enough!
