    Check this one out. It is funny stuff

    Social Justice Warriors Now Outraged Over the "NPC" Meme
    Ace of Spades HQ

    This article from Breitbart explains the meme.

    The new "NPC" meme mocks leftists by depicting them as unthinking and reflexive automatons. The meme has upset the left so much that Twitter is now banning people posting it for "dehumanizing speech," but its humble origins are the computer-controlled characters of limited intelligence found in most video games.

    The popular NPC meme trend frames its targets as non-player characters (NPCs) who reflexively spout neo-Marxist axioms in response to real-world events. Actual NPCs are computer-controlled characters in video games with limited scripted responses given the parameters of the games in which they appear. For example, NPCs may assign quests to the player in games like Skyrim, or join the player as a companion in Fallout.

    Built on the long-running Wojak meme, the NPC meme mocks leftists as expressionless in appearance and bot-like in behavior. The universal standard appearance illustrates the left's political homogeneity.




    Breitbart has a good collection of memes, depicting leftists as barely-sentient simulated life-forms.

    NPC blog Kotaku bemoaned the mockery of NPCs:

    NPCs have no agency; NPCs don't think for themselves; NPCs don't perceive, process, or understand; NPCs arrive at the same worldview not because it’s authentic to their experiences, but automatically. As a descriptor, it suggests that those to whom it applies aren't even human, but are rather, functionally, robots, or clusters of computer code. That this has resonated as widely as it has is funny, but also a little scary.

    Breitbart notes:

    Despite the left's insistence that the NPC meme is "dehumanizing," there seems to be no similar outcry from the same people when conservatives on social media are dismissed as "Russian bots" by opponents.

    Tim Pool did a video about the evolution of this meme and the left's lunatic reaction to it.

    He then did an update when leftists upgraded the NPC meme from "dehumanizing" to "fascist capitalism."

    He did a third video when he realized the weird "meme magic" going on with the NPC meme.

    So you don’t have examples of people being banned .

    Cause here’s what really happens: Conservative poster spams Facebook with “n word , n word , n word. Holocaust is a lie . White power!” . Gets banned . Then cries online because he was banned for “conservative views”.

    If they did ban someone, isn't that their right? What do you want, big government to tell every website owner what they do with their own property?
