How NOT to convince people to share your ideas...

In recent years, people have resorted to using memes on social media to share their ideas on things and try to convince others to agree with them. It never really works well, though. More often then not, it just looks like someone looking to insult their ideological opponents. That's not going to convince anyone to switch over to your side in the debate. We will now display 3 good examples that illustrate my point...


This tripe came from an Atheist page, in case you couldn't tell. Also, the odds of Mississippi being #1 in anything is not overly high since the state has a pretty low population compared to most others. Furthermore, I can personally vouch for there being a lot of smart people living in Mississippi. I'm related to some of them. Those relatives of mine might be Redneck to the core but, they'd still have to be clever to be retired Air Force officers, Registered Nurses, Real-Estate Agents, Diesel mechanics and engineers employed by NASA. Also, since when was '1st most' considered good grammar? That's not the sort of thing that an intelligent/educated person would write...




This one has less to do with Social Media and more to do with the Mainstream Media, aka the DNC's propaganda machine. Despite the objective fact that President Trump has been doing a lot of good things since getting into office, CNN is still going to look for anything they can possibly use to besmirch him. Too bad they didn't do that with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Those two actually deserved all the pillory that elected officials often get. All this really does is keep people who aren't Democrats from looking at any of CNN's reports. That's probably a good thing...




I saw this on the page of an old Army buddy that is also very left-wing. I'm sure she shared this in jest but, it seems more insulting than actually funny. It also doesn't say why Republicans would be angry. Also, Republicans do care about poor kids having enough to eat. They'd just rather not get the government involved. This kind of crap is why the political discourse in America today is so unbelievably tribal and toxic. Knock that shit off, Democrats. Otherwise, the mid-term elections of 2018 and POTUS election in 2020 won't go so well for you, either. That is the real reason Trump got so much popular support. His populist rhetoric and ability to fight back against the crooked media didn't get him elected. People being disgusted with you Democrats got him elected. You became such toxic assholes that the GOP could have ran anyone and still defeat you, including an ego-maniacal/often controversial real-estate tycoon.
