Darkstream: meme wars

It probably won't surprise you to know that I discussed the new Daily Meme Wars list on tonight's Darkstream. The online response was almost uniformly positive.

UPDATE: The first Daily Meme Wars email has gone out to 850 subscribers. Let's see what happens....

Spot on. Memes are the information-war equivalent of a swarm. Big Media is the information-war equivalent of a big stationary target.

I'm surprised the list has taken off so successfully: when finalizing your subscription to the list, you are asked to "confirm humanity". That's not what the VFM, Dreak Ilk and sundry shitlords will be extending to our enemies.

More fun with YouTube's auto-caption: "Cernovich would probably call me up a little class pussy, as he has done before." Now that's a true friend.

Galactic level trolling:

“At the Impeach Trump March in Chicago 7/2/17. A group of protesters applaud a speech comprised almost entirely of Adolf Hitler quotes given by Shad Daley. This was 20 seconds after saying they need to fight fascism. After the speech, the organizing member of was desperate to get Shad more involved."

No bastard ever won a war by dying for his Memes. He won it by making some other poor dumb bastard die for his Memes.

this was what Patton really meant to say, but as a time went on the Mandela effect skewed to be about WW2. But Patton was thinking big, not, confining his thoughts to that little skirmish.

The Great Meme War has begun! The Mother of All Spergouts! Let Scorn and Mockery rain down like Justice upon those who thought themselves our Narrative Masters. Pride comes before the fall. Great is their pride, much greater shall their fall.

Is there room for teaching? I re-learned some things, getting back into the meme biz.

This all has to do with Photoshop Elements 5.0.

How to transparent:

Take (what is most likely) the top CNN logo link and get it into Photoshop. Then Duplicate Layer into the other file ("Document:"), not that one.

We shall Meme them on the beaches, we shall Meme them on the landing grounds, we shall Meme them in the fields and in the streets, we shall Meme them in the hills; we shall never surrender.

I found this in the Alt-History Archives at the local University. This is the speech Winston Churchill was meant to deliver, if only his body double hadn't picked up the inferior draft copy. One simple mistake on which the Western World now hangs.

Memes are distilled, 100-proof rhetoric.

I'd really just like it to be called the Daily Meme-ail." Curse my insufferable appetite for puns!

Have you done a longer, more in depth dive into the nature of the left's lies?

The notion that they always lie should be fully unpacked.

Just got my first one in the email, and K-Bang! Talk about off to a great start. I'm curious, the picture at the linked article isn't that same as in the email. If VD or anyone he knows made that graphic, the one with the Russian flag colored mask, they deserve a compliment. that's slick. Way to go. This operation is more than I expected.

These meme wars have been brutal on Democrats/Media. It must be very, very confusing for them that their pat strategies of calling us bigots do not work anymore. They've been using them successfully for so long that it they've come to believe them. And many typical Republicans still recoil in fear at being called the latest It's why I left the Republican party after 2006. They wouldn't or didn't know how to fight.

Thank God (literally) for Donald Trump, who is willing to fight back with a vengeance. And thanks to Gamergate (which is honestly not my milieu) for opening up the eyes of a lot of geeks who don't care anymore about being called names. I may not be a gamer, and may have been late to support Trump. But I know how to be grateful to those who saw early in Trump what it took me longer to understand.

I thought this meme was particularly effective:

It is the scene from the Shakespeare play where the president Trump look-alike is stabbed to death. The head of of "Julius Caesar" has been replaced by the CNN logo.

This is particularly effective because it is a clash of two narratives. CNN has already said that Trump body slamming CNN was a threat to CNN. If so, killing CNN must be an even bigger threat.

On the other hand, when the Right complained about the depiction of the killing of Trump in the play, they were told by CNN and others that it was not a threat to Trump, it was just artistic expression, etc. If so, they shouldn't have a problem with a depiction of CNN being assassinated.
