Over the past few weeks, we’ve posted a few articles about the lazy splattering of text over images we call “memes,” particularly the outrageously fraudulent ones posted by people who hate migrants in Europe. We also took a look at the images made by pro-gun activists, which contained fewer outright lies, but still spewed plenty of bullshit. The creators of all of these memes showed very little interest in things like honesty or context, instead cherry-picking facts to maximize the impact of their trolling.
But the gun people are winning. According to a brand new Gallup poll, the NRA is viewed favorably by 58 percent of Americans. Liberals like columnist Nicholas Kristof ofThe New York Times are all but admitting defeat, calling the left’s gun control efforts “poorly designed.” Kristof notes that “brazen talk about banning guns just sparked a backlash that empowered the National Rifle Association.” Those on the left can’t seem to win this argument, and, judging from what’s online, they seem to be settling for a lot of hard-line sloganeering.
So after taking a nice, long look at what the pro-gun right is posting on Facebook, we decided to turn the spotlight on anti-gun memes. They’re not a bunch of outright lies, but many of them are full of the same bad logic, cherry-picked facts, and, well, bullshit, as the ones created by their opponents. Here’s what we found:
