In the face of political unrest, we make jokes. Jokes in the form of political cartoons, carefully crafted tweets, and – most importantly – memes.
I think we all can agree we love memes. We love memes so much they’ve almost become a part of our everyday language even when we’re not on the internet. We speak in memes, we communicate with memes, and we get to poke fun at the most powerful people in the world – politicians – through memes… until those memes get banned!
Censorship isn’t something we really have to worry about in america… yet. But other countries have to worry about their memes being taken away from them. China and Russia have banned some if not all memes and the EU might be on it’s way to banning memes too (but for copyright reasons and not censorship).
But the best thing about the internet is that when someone asks the trolls and the memers to stop, that only increases the harassment a hundredfold.
Honestly, if someone told me that this was a picture of the same man a few decades apart, I would fully believe them. I honestly don’t think that this picture makes Putin look bad, but he and I must have very different definitions of what makes him look bad.
Trust your dogs. If your dog is acting weird, odds are something’s wrong (or he got into your edibles). I think that we all should listen to what this poor dog is trying to tell us, especially Donald Trump.
I personally would not want to be that close to a man that powerful or that terrifying.
Range of Emotions
I wouldn’t want to have to negotiate with this man. I feel like there’s no possible way to fully understand what he’s thinking based on how he displays such a wide range of emotions.
Dick-tator am I right?
When it comes to world leaders, Putin is definitely seen without his shirt on a lot more than anyone else. I think that a nice suit exudes power, but again he must have other ideas.
I guess they look alike
I’m not sure if you’ve been keeping up with what’s been going on with Chinese politics, but Winnie the Pooh has been banned in the country because people have been comparing the popular cartoon character with President Xi. I think I can see the resemblance, but I don’t think it’s grounds for banning the character all together! He even didn’t allow the new Winnie the Pooh movie to be shown in the country!
Okay, I’m starting to see it
Oh wow, okay I guess I can see where he’s coming from.
The Resemblance is Uncanny
Okay, yeah. He totally looks like Winnie the Pooh. But he shouldn’t have said anything because now he has meme-lords spamming him with Winnie the Pooh memes!
From what I understand this was the meme that pushed Putin over the edge and made him ban memes. Homeboy is super homophobic, but I think this pic makes him look pretty!
Free to Meme
I’m proud to live in a country that doesn’t infringe upon our god given right to meme!
