If you can’t meme, just get them censored

BuzzFeed is now lobbying Twitter to censor memes that satirize the Democratic Party.

Yes, really.

Democrats are currently embroiled in a blackface scandal after both Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing make-up to make them look African-American.

One creative conservative chose to make fun out of this by posting a meme during Trump’s State of the Union speech which depicted white-wearing Dem Congresswomen in distinctive KKK hoods.

After the meme went viral, BuzzFeed fired off an article and a tweet which asserted, “Twitter is allowing this altered photo comparing women members of Congress who wore white to the State of the Union to the KKK to circulate on its platform despite its own policy that doesn’t allow “symbols historically associated with hate groups.”

Other Twitter users quickly corrected BuzzFeed, pointing out that such images are only banned if they are used to glorify racism.

“Wrong. The code of conduct only disallows these images if they are meant to promote racial bigotry, which in this case they are not,” commented @neotaster. “That is, you aren’t allowed to glorify the KKK, but using KKK imagery in certain contexts is allowed. Otherwise you couldn’t tweet pics of Hitler.”
