Censored by Bernie Sanders’ Dank Meme Stash!

February 26, 2016

Recently I joined the Facebook group “Bernie Sanders’ Dank Meme Stash”. ICYMI, these Sanders memes have become quite popular and the Facebook group is quite large (hundreds of thousands of members). One of the most popular Bernie memes is a “Hillary or Bernie” on an issue meme. Usually the issue is some pop culture subject like Jazz, or The Grateful Dead, or something cool. The standard way this meme works is, whatever the topic, Bernie will have some really cool insightful thing to say and Hillary’s quote will be stupid. Haha, Hillary is dumb and Bernie is super-cool. Often this meme type will have sexist undertones like girls just don’t know anything about Star Wars or whatever. So, I joined the group to play a little turnabout.

I posted the following three “Hillary or Bernie” memes I generated using the Gimp:

BvH_QotSABvH_MetalBvH_Race

People in the group were like “wut?” and “wrong.” and, for the Queens of the Stone Age one, I received many abusive comments calling me a dipshit (is that even still a thing?) and such. Ok, funny when the woman is stupid and the man is cool but not funny when the man is stupid and the woman is cool.

The administrator of the group removed my memes. Guess the Berners on this group have no sense of humor! I’ve sent a message to the admin of the group asking why – was it the abusive comments or is it that they just do not allow memes that are the reverse of what they want ? No reply yet, I’ll update when I get one.
