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!

Video: German Leftists Applaud Death Threats Against AfD

Audience claps and whoops with delight.

Published

on

Video from a political debate television round table shows German leftists in the audience applauding death threats made against the right-wing AfD party.

During the show, chairman of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party Frank Magnitz was asked why his party had underperformed in Bremen compared to success in other parts of the country.

Back in January, Magnitz himself was viciously attacked by three unknown assailants in Bremen and was left fighting for his life after suffering a gaping head wound.

Magnitz explained that Bremen is politically difficult for the AfD party because of repeated threats made against its members in the area.

“This afternoon I received news that we will have to cancel our last three election events that we planned from now up until the end of our campaign,” said Magnitz.

“The reason is very simple….because the owner no longer wanted to rent it out to us because he received death threats,” he added.

In response to this, numerous members of the audience began enthusiastically whooping and clapping.

“It is clear from the reactions here how horrible the political discourse is,” said Magnitz

The host of the show then accused Magnitz of playing the victim, prompting another guest to remark, “Maybe it has more to do with your kind of politics”.

To make the situation even more absurd, one of the applauding audience members is wearing a sweatshirt on which is written the words “always be kind”.

Several AfD offices in Germany have also been bombed or suffered other attacks since the party came to prominence.

Populist Leader Stuns Elite: “Danes Are En Route to Becoming a Minority in Their Own Country”

Prime Minister shocked in response to comments.

Published

on

Populist leader Rasmus Paludan stunned the political elite during a live debate when he warned, “Danes are en route to becoming a minority in their own country” by 2040.

Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-Islam activist who leads the Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party.

The statement was made during an election debate where Paludan shared the debate platform with Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, who looked shocked that Paludan would dare say such a thing.

“They talk about this as if this was not a very big problem,” said Paludan.

“The great replacement, denotes that Muslims, who don’t belong here, marry very early and get a lot of children, Danes marry late and get very few children,” he added.

“He has not understood what is happening before his very eyes….if these conditions continue, Danes are en route to becoming a minority in their own country,” said Paludan, adding, “And that won’t be fun for you or me!”

The rest of the debate participants from the establishment parties looked completely stunned while Paludan made the statement.

Paludan has gone from being a minor nuisance to an actual political force as a result of laws that mandate he is allowed to participate in political debates having collected enough signatures for his party.

The Danish election will take place next month on June 5.
