Those deplorables out there in the real world just keep on derailing the legacy media’s narratives. Trump was treated to a yuge round of ecstatic applause when he attended a college football game at the University of Alabama, squashing the legacy media’s narrative about sports fans booing the president.
Even worse, in a pre-match interview, a student reminded MSNBC viewers that Epstein didn’t kill himself.
The segment of “MSNBC Live with Kendis Gibson” featured reporter Monica Alba interviewing pro-Trump students at the school ahead of the Alabama-LSU football game, which the president attended.
One student correctly predicted a “very positive reaction” to Trump’s appearance at the stadium, including “either a standing ovation or at least a lot of cheering.”
Alba then turned to a male student identified as Parker, who was wearing a Trump button on his sweatshirt.
“Why do you like him so much and what policies stand out to you?” she asked.
“I would say mainly just the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself,” the student said. “That’s awesome, yeah. That’s totally perfect.”
Cue awkward silence.
The Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself meme is the first major battle of the Second Great Meme War.
As even some of the memes have explained, this isn’t at all about memorialising or valorising Epstein. Instead, its purpose is to disrupt the legacy media-elite narrative, which wants to consign Epstein to the Memory Hole. The legacy media and their elite masters just want you to conveniently forget that a wealthy, powerful paedophile who was about to rat out a host of other wealthy, powerful pedophiles conveniently “committed suicide” in his heavily guarded prison cell.
During an Oct. 30 appearance on “Fox & Friends,” former New York City medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden made headlines by saying the findings of the autopsy, which Epstein’s brother hired him to observe, are more consistent with homicide. A number of other experts have made similar observations in the past.
In a video leaked last Tuesday, ABC News anchor Amy Robach was apparently caught on hot mic saying the network prevented her from airing the allegations against Epstein three years ago. She said she was “a hundred percent” certain he had not killed himself. While acknowledging the authenticity of the footage, Robach and ABC News downplayed her comments.
Meme culture is punching an asteroid-sized hole in the legacy media’s narrative. The world’s most popular YouTuber, PewDiePie played the meme to his 100-million-plus followers. That’s just the surface of the traction that this meme is gaining, despite every media-elite attempt to shut it down.
Parker was the latest in a series of outsider observers to go viral for voicing their doubts about Epstein’s supposed suicide.
Also Tuesday, Louisiana pilot Wayne Spring posted a viral “farewell message” to his wife and children during what he said was an in-flight “emergency.”
“I shouldn’t be filming this, but if anything happens I want everybody to know,” he said in the video, which has been viewed over 4 million times. “I do want to say to my wife and kids … Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.”
Last Saturday, former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland interrupted a discussion about military dogs to tell Fox News host Jesse Watters to add: “And Epstein didn’t kill himself.”pluralist.com/epstein-didnt-kill-himself-pro-trump-alabama-student-derails-live-msnbc-interview
This meme-war skirmish shows the fundamental disconnect between media and the public like almost nothing else. The legacy media are assiduously trying to Memory Hole Epstein, his crimes, and his associates. The public, via memetic warfare, is fighting back.
This is why the legacy media and Silicon Valley are so desperate to control the social media sphere: the peasants are revolting.
