BBC History deserves honorary mention as funniest meme of the week.

Anonymous Gen. Kong August 14, 2017 11:43 AM  

All they asked for was his heart, just like its says right here. No doubt written somewhere into Goolag's rules for zeks.

Anonymous RedSector August 14, 2017 11:47 AM  

Not feeling this one. Hard to read text at odd angles. Too busy. "James Damore" over the victim is too haphazard. I guess there's some pattern to the text colors?

Yes, I'm the Roger Ebert of memes. :P

LARPer: "Needs MOAR swastikas!"

The Google Gooflufle is forgotten by most. It didn't matter. It doesn't matter. The Alt Right in Charlottesville saw to that.

Nice job guys.

VD - you may enjoy this book:
https://www.amazon.com/Violence-Unveiled-Humanity-at-Crossroads/dp/0824516451

It covers the Aztec's downfall -- their numbers of human sacrifices continued to increased exponentially to counteract their bullshit no longer "selling" with the general population.
Recalls the whole converged business.

Gil Bailie knows his stuff. Excellent read.

The 1/3 of Google employees who agreed with Damore haven't forgotten.

Yeah, totally. And Trump needs to stop using his Twitter account and let the mainstream media speak for him because he keeps stepping on the media narrative.

I love this, perfect choice and google is evil.

When dealing with the media visual symbols matter. The LARPers that wear brown shirts, nazi swastika armbands, and giving the nazi salute are photographed and the visuals are spread everywhere. Any alt-right event absolutely needs designated members that will steer the LARPers right the fuck out. Because the normies get their information from the MSM, and the MSM just shows the visuals while explaining that alt-right equals nazi. And that is all the normies need to reject the alt-right.

Visuals are critical. That's why memes can be so effective. And on this point, the above meme is too complicated - way too many colors, odd text, and the cultural context is too obscure because not Western Civ. Would be better to show a scene of him being burned at the stake, with a single large print line at the bottom (not the top) of the image saying "His name was James Damore. Example: http://www.christian.expert/sites/default/files/inline-images/burning-at-stake_0.jpg

This image is dramatic, requires no photoshop, and any normie who sees it will immediately do a search for the name.

That is a bit like blaming Michael Jackson's death from preventing the Iranians from overthrowing the theocracy.

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Not only was it voted the most popular meme, but it did very well on the impressions side.

I suggest you stop posturing, shut up, and meme.

Alt-Tech vs Az-Tech

Anonymous fop August 14, 2017 1:02 PM  

At Barnes and Noble yesterday noticed that "The Collapsing Empire" had a big 50% OFF sticker.

It's like the memes are creating themselves.

We're fighting Aztecs (and worshippers of other blood gods), not Christians.

Guess they were out of "Uggh, just take it" stickers...

Do our votes really measure meme effectiveness? Or do they just measure meme popularity among our in-group? There may not be much correlation between those.

What's the impressions side?

That picture of very organized men marching in professional-looking brown clothes and red armbands is by far more impressive than what the Ninja of Mockery Steve here posts on a regular basis. I wouldn't be worried about the visuals.

When 300-pound hippopotamuses with as many genders as chins rule over you, the very fit, sharply dressed Nazi are a very welcome sight.

Blogger VD August 14, 2017 2:21 PM

The latter. Impressions measure the former. They were all pretty good.

Blogger The Kurgan August 14, 2017 2:44 PM  

The interesting thing is that Ann Barnhardt is correct on a contextual point. ONE press conference would be enough to cause huge damage.
James was ONE guy who wrote ONE memo.
And it's going to cause the implosion of Google in the long run to be faster and far more visible.
It may even have started it.

Amazing.

I can hardly wait for the sequel. "The Really, Really, Really Collapsing Empire!"
Did Scalzi make any money from that trashy dime novel?

@18. "Do our votes really measure meme effectiveness? Or do they just measure meme popularity among our in-group? There may not be much correlation between those."

If our perspectives do not align well with reality, we have bigger problems to deal with.

Conversely, if our perspectives do align with reality, but not with other peoples, we don't care, because those other people will be destroyed or reformed by reality.

never mind. Googs is tossing them into the 'Promotions' folder for some reason.

My understanding is that we want these memes to gobsmack the normies with a lethal-to-their-fantasies dose of reality. If they aren't doing that, it doesn't matter whether we like them or not. For example, inside jokes that only we get don't help. Thus, my question.

I still don't know what impressions means, but if it's measuring effectiveness and the memes score high, then I'm happy with the memes, even if I don't get them myself.

The memes are spreading. L.Neil Smith borrowed on of yours for his libertarian commentary blog this week:

Blogger Kristophr August 14, 2017 7:54 PM  

Apparently, someone on his blog is on the mailchimp distro list. Although he needs to correct his attribution link a bit.

Blogger Kristophr August 14, 2017 7:57 PM  

Sent L Neil the correct attribute page:

Any chance that you would consider putting the actual memes in the emails? I had signed up for the memes right away, but unsubscribed almost as quickly. I don't really have much use for content-free emails full of tracking links to a data mining operation.

I'd like to see the meme candidates above and beyond the best of the week that you publish here, but I don't want it so badly that I'm going to waste a day trying to figure out who the hell list-manage2.com is or why you trust them to harvest my data.
