Good Day World!
Not all memes are created equal.
A meme a day won’t keep the doctor away.
Great memes don’t all think alike.
Funny memes make us laugh (see photo of 2 dogs).
Propaganda memes reflect the worst in our society by spreading lies. For example I found one meme floating around on Facebook that was totally faked and full of hate. It centers around the Benghazi controversy and the murder of J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
The meme on the right is one of many particularly vicious one’s regarding the ambassador’s death. It is also completely FAKE.
He was overcome with smoke inhalation while trying to flee the burning compound and was discovered by some civilians who took him to Benghazi Medical Center where he suffered a cardiac arrest and doctors were unable to revive him.
His body was never desecrated and was shipped back to the states where an autopsy was performed before being turned over to his family.
Then there are mean memes. This one of an overweight little boy is just one example of what’s being thrown about in social media sites.
Overweight people are a common target for mean memes.
Political memes can also be extremely mean and have become a common fixture in any election. It seems being mean is very popular.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
