The Left Can’t Meme So They’ve Just Decided To Ban Memes Instead

By Paul Joseph Watson:

Following studies that proved the political right was more successful at creating and spreading memes than the left, Facebook has announced it is developing a new AI algorithm that can detect and ban “offensive” memes.

It’s almost like there’s some kind of connection here.

“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,” reports Fox News. “In other words, Facebook developed an AI that can tell if a meme is offensive.”

Of course, defining what is “offensive” is completely subjective and is wide open to abuse by far-left political agitators who control Silicon Valley. Offensive speech is part of free speech. Unless a meme contains pornography or graphic violence, it should not be banned.

In reality, this is part of the ongoing algorithmic backlash that social media giants embarked on after the 2016 presidential election, which was underscored again last night with the release of a leaked video showing Google execs discussing how they can develop algorithms to ensure Donald Trump doesn’t get re-elected.

Just as the left can no longer form cogent political arguments outside of calling their opponents racist bigots, the left can’t meme.

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.

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

The researchers studied more than 100 million images from online communities and found that, “/pol/ had the highest volume of memes, while the_donald was the best at getting memes spread outside of its own community.”

The researchers concluded that the algorithm they developed to identify the most effectively spread memes, “could be useful for social media platforms trying to automatically detect hateful content,” or in other words could be used to censor viral memes that are successful in spreading right-wing narratives.

In addition to Facebook developing artificial intelligence to detect and censor “offensive” memes, the European Union just voted in favor of Article 13, which would require websites to automatically filter uploaded material for copyright violations, which would lead to transformative memes being blocked.

The reality is that political memes are always going to be offensive to someone. The left is so entrenched in political correctness that it has completely lost its sense of humor and is permanently walking on eggshells. That’s why they’re terrible at memes. And that’s why it’s so much more convenient just to ban memes altogether.
