Instagram to “Fact Check” & Remove Memes

Because the left can’t meme.

Published

on

Instagram has announced that it will begin “fact checking” and removing memes.

The social media giant, which is owned by Facebook, will use its 52 global “fact checking partners” to censor “false photos and memes on its platform,” according to Poynter.

“Instagram is taking those fact checks and applying them to the same false photos and memes on its platform,” according to the report.

Memes deemed factually incorrect will no longer appear under tabs where they can be discovered by random users.

The Poynter Institute, which partners with Facebook, recently had to shut down its own database highlighting unreliable news sites “after discovering inconsistencies between sources used to build the database and its final report.”

So you can trust them.

Quite why memes have to be “fact checked” given that are almost always satirical and are not intended to be statements of fact may be a mystery to some.

It’s actually not a mystery at all.

Studies have repeatedly shown that the political right is far better at spreading memes.

A study undertaken by researchers at University College London found that the most effective memes largely originated in two places – the subreddit r/the_donald – a forum devoted to boosting President Donald Trump, and 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol forum.

A VICE write-up of the study acknowledges that the most “effectively spread” memes originated on r/the_donald and /pol.

Earlier this year, BuzzFeed lobbied Twitter to ban a meme which made fun of Democrats and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Last year, “Facebook announced the deployment of a large-scale machine learning system named Rosetta, which it’s using to automatically and proactively identify “inappropriate or harmful content” in images on the social network,” reported Fox News. “In other words, Facebook developed an AI that can tell if a meme is offensive.”

It’s a scientific fact that the left can’t meme, so far easier just to ban memes!

Joe Biden Makes a Fool of Himself in Yet Another Bizarre Interview

One of the most awkward exchanges ever.

Published

on

Joe Biden was humiliated again after a bizarre MSNBC interview during which he stumbled over his words and sounded semi-incoherant.

“In the history of live television interviews there has never been one this awkward, not ever,” commented one Twitter user who posted the clip.

During the interview, Biden complained that Trump wasn’t acting like a president in his response to the coronavirus outbreak, despite a new Gallup poll showing 60 per cent of Americans approve of Trump’s actions.

“Why doesn’t he just act like a president?” asked Biden before an awkward pause. “That’s a stupid way to say it,” he added as the host of the show talked over him.

“I really wish he….” said Biden before pausing again and looking down then saying “sorry.”

“Go ahead” said host Nicolle Wallace, to which Biden responded, “No, probably best I don’t.”

“I just can’t figure the guy, it’s like watching a yo-yo,” said Biden before yet another pause after which he added, “I shouldn’t have said it that way, it’s like watching…”

Wallace then began nervously laughing while Biden shook his head and rolled his eyes.

Despite Biden’s bizarre behavior, viewers noted how obsequious Wallace acted towards him, constantly smiling in a servile manner.

NY Times Journo Humiliated Over Bad Bloomberg Math Cries Racism

Time to play the victim card.

Published

on

The New York Times journalist who was humiliated for erroneously claiming Mike Bloomberg’s $500 million ad buy could have been used to give every American $1 million dollars has re-emerged to complain that her embarrassment was the fault of a “racist Twitter mob.”

Mara Gay responded to Bloomberg dropping out of the presidential race last week by claiming that the money he spent on campaign commercials could have made every American a millionaire with lots of spare change.

“Actually with the money he spent he could have given every American a million dollars,” Gay told MSNBC’s Brian Williams, who immediately agreed.

With math obviously not being Gay’s strong point, it was immediately pointed out that Bloomberg’s $500 billion doled out to all 327 million Americans would mean they get just $1.53 each.

After being left red-faced, Gay re-emerged today with a New York Times opinion piece whining about racism.

“A racist Twitter mob came for me over a trivial math mistake. I’m not going anywhere,” she tweeted.

In the article, Gay complains about receiving a “deluge of hate.”

“Unfortunately, quite a few Americans can tell you what it’s like to be the target of a Twitter mob over a gaffe,” she writes. “My great sin was trivial, harmless, silly. What’s it like when people are trying to cancel you for a math mistake? Weird, and maddening and painful.”

“But she’s not unique for getting tweets making fun of her,” responds Barrett Wilson. “Every public figure gets that. People who put themselves out there, on tv, in writing, on radio, on twitter, get hate from trolls who want attention and don’t have enough nerve, drive, or talent to express themselves in a constructive way.

Indeed, everyone who finds themselves in the crosshairs of a media spectacle, whether they be black, white, conservative or liberal, can expect to receive a deluge of hateful messages on social media.

The only difference is that people on the left always react to being embarrassed by crying “bullying and harassment,” and the media promptly rushes to their defense. Conservatives don’t enjoy that privilege.

Mara; No matter how many mean messages from racists you receive on Twitter, your math is still terrible.

“If you’re going to go on TV and talk to millions of people about economics, learn to do some super basic math in your head. And if you screw up, and people notice, it’s because it’s obvious, not because they’re racist,” writes Wilson.

Respondents on Twitter weren’t buying Gay’s excuses.

Hate Hoax: Black Woman Carves “White Pride” Into Sidewalk Outside Black-Owned Gym

The female Jussie Smollett.

Published

on

Another hate crime hoax was exposed after the words “white pride” were carved into the sidewalk outside a black-owned gym in Tennessee – by a black woman.

Gym owner Derrick Carson arrived at the Johnson City branch of DC Fitness at 5am in the morning to discover the scrawl.

He immediately alerted police but upon reviewing security camera footage, the culprit turned out to be a black woman.

41-year-old Mahagany Teague was subsequently arrested for vandalism and held on $1,000 bail.

“Mahagany’s name may be an attempt to spell “mahogany,” which could be used to describe her pigmentation,” comments Dave Blount, who maintains a ‘hate hoax list’ of similar incidents.

There have been innumerable examples of hate crime hoaxes across America in recent years, all of which feed into the media’s hysterical narrative that white supremacy is on the rise once again.

The most egregious example was of course Jussie Smollett, who was indicted by a grand jury for staging a racist violent attack on himself and blaming it on Trump supporters.
