I’m case-by-case, meme to meme. Politics generally bores me so none of them live in my head. I switch to new thing too often for any of them to get stuck up there.

The one I shared might not be the dankest — it *is* mad magazine after all, a little long in the tooth and have been surpassed by Cracked in that dept long ago — but it’s just a few hours old.

oh man joe that’s a normie meme of normie memes…. ugh and i used the word normie.. which is normie as hell.. well whatever. ugh i thought I got away from the sprinkle of spice guy in january….

Of course. But dank has to have an edge to it. When enough time passes, the edges get rusty and dull.

Here’s an example: the word “queer”. You and I know that word. Probably played smear the queer and whatever. Maybe remember queer nation stuff.

But kids today? They don’t know the word. It’s just… gone.

Let me know if you see any Spicy Sean Spicer memes come your way. He resigned today so there should be some fun stuff about that going around somewhere soon.

Some of the responses I got on iFunny to the same image. I’m still a firm believer that there’s intelligent life to be found in every corner of the internet if you give people 1/2 a chance and yes, there’s intelligent life on iFunny, along with the normal banter one might expect.

That’s it. It’s supposed to be tough -and slow. Gotta rewrite the entire US Constitution to change that. It’s designed to *prevent* anybody from having too much power and oddly enough, it works. I like our Constitution for that reason. It’s not perfect, and a representative democracy *probably* isn’t the ideal form of government, but it’s not bad.

His base tends to highly support him still at the moment. Being told to stay away from news sources that say negative things about him helps keep his base insulated and controls information flow, so they tend to stay relatively happy and hopeful.

Controlling information flow like that isn’t really normal for the USA. Of course there’s some but I’ve never seen anything this drastic in trying to control the base.

Also, most Presidents try to “bring the country together”, giving a little to the opposite team, taking a little away from the team that won… but in this case it’s black and white. Very odd for the USA. at least in my lifespan.

Well, it’s possible that “times have changed” and there’s a new normal that just seems strange to me. So you could be right in that this is all perfectly normal.

The politics of the world has been changing and I’ve never been that ‘into’ politics, so it’s possible a new normal was being created and I just didn’t start seeing it until a few years ago.

For example, I knew the right was angry, mostly male and that something new politically was coming out of gaming culture and anonymous forums and expressed in youtube videos, comments and memes. I’ve been watching that since about 2011.

But the more I’m learning, the more I’m seeing that it’s been brewing much longer than that.

I talked to some people from my very liberal college who were there in the early 2000s. They noticed white power groups starting to come onto the campus, and started using liberal arguments against liberals and in support of “white rights” / “male rights” / etc. They demanded to be able to fly Nazi flags on campus and such.

So, there were some changes happening on college campuses 15 years ago. I had no idea.

The Millennial fascination with Hitler and Nazism is something I noticed a little but didn’t realize *how* common it was in their generation. Even when they dated it was common to make Nazi jokes and references, do Nazi cosplay, complete with pink Nazi uniforms and things.

I’m starting to understand parts of the Millennial generation that always confused me better and better, and it’s giving me some clues as to the changes among a segment of them that I didn’t expect.

I was wrapped up in my own life to pay much attention. They seemed a little lost to me.
