It is still possible that the Dems just barely take the House. In fact it would not surprise men either way.
After all, all politics are local and many Dems are good at bringing home the bacon.

Whatever the specific rhetoric may be, this will be spun as a total repudiation of Trump.

Really, Skeeve.

The NPC meme was worth a smirk or two in its day. But now it's time to move on. :p

This video isn't particularly funny, but its existence shows the meme is dead. :P

The whole "NPC Meme" boils down to "If you don't mindlessly and unquestioningly agree with my political views, you are incapable of independent thought"

ANd the people who use it are completely oblivious to the irony of that position.

Luckily only 25 people attended the event voluntarily. The final push is on!

All the late night shows are pushing Blue as hard as possible. SNL did their part.

What to expect the next few days:
Outright FakeNews from CNN/MSNBC/FOX that will be quietly retracted after the election if at all.
Ongoing media blackout on the Beto campaign caravan funding scandal.
Ongoing media blackout on modeling agency no-platforming black trump supporter.
Ongoing media blackout on the Caravan unless it's to report on the few women/children in it.

Now is the time the shit really hits the fan as all journalistic integrity (what?) goes out the window. I don't know that there was any left, but maybe now they just show their true faces and don't even pretend anymore to not be activist shills (like Jim Acosta).

Expect the media to conveniently lie by omission about the pipe bomb pranker:
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/aut ... -seek-bail

He isn't charged with attempted murder. The know it wasn't a serious assassination attempt. Reporting that would assure citizens. They withhold the truth because they want to keep the "Trump radicalized a terrorist" narrative alive.

Did I mention fuck them?

True.

But I have some additional observations.

This meme was never really about being funny in itself. The LULZ come from the people who it was directed at losing their shit. Even at that, not all that funny Yet I will shamefully admit getting a chuckle or two for a little while after corplinx brought it to our attention.

By the time Sargon, Molyneux, Black Pigeon, Computing Forever, etc all did big potificatory retrospective videos it was dead.

corplinx:
Obama is correct to say that no one person can decide who is an American citizen.
I'm not quite sure how that is supposed to be anti-Trump.
Isn't that also Trumps position, though they differ on the specifics of enforcing the laws on the subject?

Correct.
... "Trump radicalized a terrorist" ...
.. is still consistent with what really happened (though not provable), "c/terrorist/moron/".

Nah, it just confirms that the left can't meme. They suck at it, don't understand it, and look stupid when they try.

True.
Not true. The point of the NPC meme is that you almost never see leftist activists making their case for their positions. They won't discuss the merits of their position, or respond to criticism of their position with thoughtful, reasoned speech. Instead they just chant slogans and accuse everyone who disagrees with them of being a Nazi/white supremacist/Islamaphobe/homophobe/phobephobe/misogynist. Like a NPC in a video game, one-dimensional and unable to do anything except recite pre-programmed lines.

Hell look at Nyarl, he can't rationally discuss anything since 2016. All he can do is go off on wild strawman fallacies and doesn't even try to interact honestly and reasonably.

When the establishment co-opts it, it is dead.

I remember being told that around 1970. :oldman:

Georgia is so hot, every story from the race is in ALL CAPS.

Stacey Abrams, in a red state, a hunting state, the state where Glock USA HQ is, went full retard:
During a November 4 appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) admitted that a possible outcome of her gun control plans could be that “people would turn their guns in.”
She said other options might include “buybacks” and/or “grandfathering in” certain firearms, so current owners could keep them but be barred from selling them or transferring them to other individuals.
Gun confiscation on election evening. She's either that dumb or it's a hail mary.

What I mean is, her internal poll shows her losing so she's going full "liberal" under the idea that what Democrats call "liberalism" will work if a candidate actually runs on those views.

So she's energizing all the commies and hippies in Georgia to come vote. All 5 of em.

Today is gonna be a real hysterical shrieker. The democrats don't have a movement, just a bunch of angry people. They don't trust their own polls. Trump drags the media from rally to rally and gets to rub their noses in it like dog poop. The GOP is desperate to keep the house because they are power mad sociopaths (like all politicians).

DNC Desperation:
Expect FakeNews, more FakeNews, hysterical editorials, twitter suppression of republicans, google suppression of republicans, facebook suppression of republicans.

RNC Desperation:
Soros Soros Soros (nevermind nobody knows who the fuck he is, this is not winning persuasion). FRAUD AT POLLS (gaslight voters). BUILD THE WALL (you had 2 years dipshits, this is why you're losing seats).

It’s actually a lot closer than that in Georgia. Almost half the state lives in Atlanta, which is solidly Dem. just needs Atlanta to grow a little more compared to the rest of the state and we will end up like NY State or Illinois.

They're already shitting on Beto since THEY tried to make a star out of him and failed.

The media/DNC party haven't felt this let down since Ocasio-Cortez finally opened her mouth and they realized they had commie Sarah Palin.

A Democrat was never going to win in Texas. They're 0-83 in statewide races since the last time a Democrat won in Texas. That's worse than the Cleveland Browns. Blow it? It's amazing that we're even talking about the possibility that a Democrat might get close to being competitive there.

CNN Key Races
...
In the final update to CNN's Key Race ratings, we are moving six contests -- all in favor of the Democrats.
This was Sunday...looking for an update.
