New York Times Forced to Cover Hilarious NPC Meme

Published

on

The formerly-renowned paper of record has devolved into explaining a hilarious new viral meme to its Baby Boomer audience.

“NPC means ‘nonplayable character’ or ‘nonplayer character.’ It’s a term, borrowed from the world of video games, for a character that is controlled by the computer rather than by a player. An NPC often advances the game’s plot by saying scripted lines, or assisting the playable characters in some way,” the New York Times said Tuesday.

Right-wing meme magicians have flooded Twitter with the NPC meme, parroting leftist talking points from accounts with grey-clad, stone faced avatars, infuriating the “social justice” crowd.

“Orange man bad” is the most basic of the NPC jokes, referring to leftists’ proclivity for calling President Donald J. Trump orange. NPCs often use terms like “literally shaking right now,” and “so brave” to poke fun at leftists who have  a habit of being overly-dramatic.

The Times described the meme thusly:

It’s a long story, but the short version is that a group of young, extremely pro-Trump internet trolls have spent the past several years mocking anti-Trump people as whiny, easily triggered snowflakes who are primarily motivated by social acceptance rather than by logic and critical thinking.

Many of Mr. Trump’s supporters — including, as of last week, Kanye West — put their support for him in the language of freethinking rationality and paint the other side as being motivated by blind loyalty and identity politics. (Mr. West said of his pre-Trump-supporting days, “I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality.”)

The NPC meme fits neatly into this narrative and offers Mr. Trump’s online supporters an easy shorthand way to paint liberals as humorless prudes who say “Drumpf” because the HBO host John Oliver told them to, who march in protests and put on pink “pussyhats” because they’re the popular things to do, and whose views can’t withstand scrutiny.

The meme’s effectiveness in demonstrating the ridiculousness of “social justice” hysteria has stuck a chord at Twitter’s corporate offices. The company, according to the Times, has suspended at least 1500 NPC accounts. The company claims that NPC accounts were spreading misinformation about the upcoming elections, which is apparently the newest violation of Twitter’s terms of service.

Some NPC accounts were indeed encouraging leftists to get out and vote on Nov. 7, which is the day after this year’s elections:

The political left’s reaction to the meme played into the meme itself.

Many leftists simultaneously decried NPC accounts as “dehumanizing” while also claiming that those behind the accounts were “Russian bots,” both of which are classic NPC/leftist talking points.  The left’s inability to understand the joke then became part of the joke.

Alas, the Times assured its readers that Russia has nothing to do with this.

“Although some of the NPC accounts may have been automated, there is no sign that Russia is involved in this. Mostly, it appears to be a 4chan joke that spiraled into some mild voter suppression.”

The meme has officially come to life.

Second Christian Pastor Charged for Holding Church Services During Coronavirus Lockdown

Christian gatherings are being criminalized.

Published

on

Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.

Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.

“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.

“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.

Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.

“Without his actions, the others would not come,” Moore said. “Practically, it would be very difficult to charge that number of people even if we were not in the crisis we are in.”

Spell sees his case as being paramount for nationwide fight on behalf of religious liberty against tyrannical government.

“This is a scary time for our nation. Our religious freedoms are under persecution and attack,” Spell said. “This is an attack on all Christians across the world.”

“If this is not about religion, then are the Waltons not being issued summons and arrested for keeping Walmart open?” Spell asked. “Nobody will tell us as God fearing Christians and Americans that we are non-essential in our society.”

He vows to continue holding church services publicly in Louisiana no matter what the consequences from the state turn out to be.

“When you close every door in this city, we’ll close this door and we’ll go underground, but we are going to assemble and congregate as God fearing Christians,” Spell said. “If they are to arrest me and take me out of this congregation, my assistant pastor will step in immediately, when he is arrested, the third man will step in.”

Big League Politics reported yesterday on the other pastor who has been charged with holding illegal church services under new coronavirus edicts:

A Pro-Trump pastor has been arrested for hosting churches services in Florida. This appears to be the first case of this kind under the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office obtained an arrest warrant for Rev. Rodney Howard-Browne the pastor of The River Church, a mega church in Tampa, Florida for hosting two worship services at his church this past Sunday.

State Attorney Andrew Warren remarked, “I think it’s unfortunate that the pastor here is hiding behind the First Amendment. One, it’s absolutely clear that emergency orders like this are constitutional and valid. Second of all, leaders from our faith-based community across this country have embraced the importance of social distancing.”

“Because of the reckless disregard of public safety and after repeated requests and warnings, I worked with our state attorney, Andrew Warren, to obtain a warrant for unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency rules, both of which are second degree misdemeanors,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “Our goal here is not to stop anyone from worshiping, but the safety and well-being of our community must always come first.”

Freedom of religion could soon be a lost vestige of the past because of the mass hysteria that has resulted from the coronavirus pandemic.
