The ingenious minds of network users focused this week on the new variant of the Chinese virus that — paradoxically — the WHO has decided to call “Omicron“, skipping the letter “Xi”. Despite its lack of seriousness, the media is painting this umpteenth variant with an ominous name as the fastest and most furious of all — for now. The memes begin to reflect the weariness of more and more people against the yellow alarmism of the media and the authoritarian measures of governments.
The best memes don’t make Brian Stelter laugh
This week we have also been able to witness that CNN not only seems to align ideologically with LeBron James, but they also get to whine in unison. On the one hand we have viralized the player’s complaints to the referee during a game that ended up ejecting two spectators who made James cry —figurally—; and on the other hand we had CNN’s Brian Stelter complaining bitterly about the memes against Biden, making a ridiculous call to “fight them.”
It seems that the two great enemies to beat for the Biden administration are memes and PTAs. Among its biggest allies, we find Twitter, which after the replacement of Jack Dorsey as CEO, threatens to deepen its censorship and cancellation campaigns.
