There’s silence about gun control. But I’ve been hearing about the shooting since it happened.
Maybe it’s not being politicized yet. This was Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.
Pittsburgh is beside itself as a city right now.
Yet I keep hearing that it’s a setup by the Democrats for votes, the bombs were a setup for votes, it’s all Soros…
Nobody has to talk about gun control at this point. Lines got drawn after “crisis-actor-school-shooting” in Feb. Meanwhile, Alex Jones admitted in court he lied about the Sandy Hook shooting for views, and people who unironically believe this troll stuff are doing bad shit.
No need to talk about gun control anymore. Anybody who decided did so months ago.
Media’s not silent It’s focused on who did it and why and stories about the victims.
I’m talking about social media. That’s what I see all over my feed — and a lot of Mr Rogers stuff ’cause I’m a fan anyway.
Gotta watch out for a police state. This is a VERY Federal-heavy administration.
There’s also been a shift in focus in my very left-of-center feed towards Brazil’s election.
Also, a lot about this: Pretty much every conspiracy theory the pipebomber ranted about on his Twitter and the Synagogue shooter ranted about on his Gab and was echoed by Trump and many folks who should know better is being spread out on my leftist socialist liberal pinko communist hippie FB feed.
lefty-social media isn’t TOTALLY devoid of this subject… although its focus has shifted a bit even here.
Memes are never static and gun-control-as-a-meme has changed with it.
You asked where the leftist gun control rants were at.
I’m now officially a LIBERAL to FB as of yesterday (after years of being called MODERATE) so i SHOULD see a shit-ton on my feed.
But that’s not the focus at the moment.
I know I took a lot of space in Richard’s post. But as newly minted “liberal” according to FB’s artificial intelligence machine, I figured I’d flex.
no prob. I forced mine to become MODERATE 3 yrs ago so I’d see all the shitty political ads.
But now I’m tired of it. Took me about three months of unfollowing or unfriending a few far-right friends that were annoying anyway, and getting more involved in midterms. Took a lot longer than I thought it would.
It shows in how you write – and probably in the kinds of memes you post.
A computer can easily figure it out now. If most people who share meme #49389 are “very conservative”, you might be too. Adds up after a while.
Exactly. Your output is very predictable which is how FB’s AI pegged you as “very conservative”.
