Why the Left cannot meme.
Your Aardvark has had the smackdown put on him. The kibosh, even.
I had shared this latest knee-slapper of Jeffrey Epstein memes (best one yet):
and a friend posted the tweet at the top in response.
Well, of COURSE!
This is the point. The EXACT point. The "Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself"
memes exist precisely because whatever happened to him, he has now avoided (temporal) judgment, and what is worse (as fellow huckster Jesse Forte commented on FB), all of those who partook of Epstein's...services and offerings...have escaped exposure and judicial punishment.
This brings up the titular issue: the Left cannot meme effectively, primarily because They Don't Get It. Memes require Pith and Editing. The Left tends toward preachments and verbosity. Also, they apparently cannot see through to the raison d'etre of the meme in the first place. It merely becomes a springboard for clueless responses.
If Epstein offed himself, well, he took the coward's path of avoidance.
If he was offed by others, they were protecting themselves from their loathsomeness being revealed and punished.
I vote that Epstein didn't kill himself.
(Thanks, fRed, for the meme!)
