    Twitter went on a mass banning spree for anyone who changed their profile picture to this “NPC Wojack” image, and/or put “NPC” in their screen name. What ridiculous times these are in which we live.

    But they won’t ban Farrakhan for calling all Jews termites.

  3. There is also a certain irony that those on the so-called Left can use terms that broadly de-humanize their political opponents, but the moment something similar is done to them via the NPC meme, it is a crisis.

  4. TFBW says:

    That’s not ironic. It’s merely illustrative of the fact that if they didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

    That’s largely because terms like “bot” or “troll” are genuinely used to describe anonymous users based on patterns of behavior that would indicate that the user is likely automated or at best a bad actor. For example, an account that tweets out a repetitive message with the same hashtag every minute for hours on end.

    Contrast that with the new NPC meme in which there is no doubt that the target is a real person expressing one’s actual views.

    Jim says, “terms like “bot” or “troll” … the user is likely automated or at best a bad actor.”

    Where “bad actor” includes people with politically incorrect ideas. Note also the lack of distinction between “automated” and “bad actor”, thus dehumanising.

    Wait … were you arguing against the earlier point, or backing it up?
