“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 Takes Second Place in 2024 GOP Candidate Polling

Number one may come as a surprise to you.

Published

Former President Donald Trump is undoubtedly still the most influential man in the Republican Party, and will likely remain so for some time yet to come. This is due in no small part to his ultra-loyal and sizable following, who have already proven their willingness to spurn his enemies to prove a point.  Not receiving the Trump seal of approval is going to be a hard hurdle for many elected officials to overcome, and so they tend to stay on his better side. But is Trump still the imminent 2024 presidential candidate for the Republicans?  Maybe not. A straw poll indicates Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) slightly edges out former President Donald Trump in presidential 2024 approval. Centennial Institute surveyed respondents at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on Saturday in which participants “were asked to select each potential candidate they would approve for president in 2024.” The top five ranked as follows: Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) 74.12 percent Donald Trump 71.43 percent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) 42.86 percent Mike Pompeo 39.35 percent Sen. Tim Scott (R) 35.58 percent Gover DeSantis has been working diligently to raise his national image in recent months, making a splash in the mainstream media for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, and those who would use the pandemic to exert undue authority over the citizens of the Sunshine State.

Biden Land Management Nominee Advocates for Human Population Control

And let’s not overlook her ties to an eco-terrorism plot.

Joe Biden has been busy in his first few months in office.  Not only has the 46th President spent a great deal of time looking to undo as much of his predecessor’s legacy as possible, but he is also working through all of the normal trappings of the transitional process. This includes the nomination and confirmation of a number of officials to oversee various departments within our government. One of the latest to go up for approval seems to have some strange ideas about how best to serve the planet. Tracy Stone-Manning, President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), argued in her graduate thesis that Americans need to engage in population control to protect the environment. Stone-Manning has already come under fire in recent weeks for her connection to a tree spiking incident – an ecoterrorism tactic – in Idaho in the 1980s, where she traded her court testimony for legal immunity. Her theories on keeping the environment safe were controversial, to say the least. But her past links to ecoterrorists aren’t the only controversial material in her background. In her graduate thesis, a copy of which was reviewed by Fox News, Stone-Manning also urged Americans to have no more than two kids in order to protect the environment. “The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact,” states the thesis, which was first flagged by the Daily Caller on Thursday. “We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans.” Stone-Manning created a series of eight advertisements for her thesis that focused on the issues of overgrazing, overpopulation, a mining law from the late 1800s and the lumber industry. One ad refers to a human child as an “environmental hazard” and encouraged Americans…
