4Chan Sparks Mass Triggering With NPC Meme; Twitter Responds With Ban Hammer

The "weaponized autists" at 4Chan have done it again, because they can; a new meme suggesting that liberals are soulless idiots who can't think for themselves has gone viral. The concept compares Democrats to "nonplayable characters," or NPCs - the recurring characters in video games with repetitive lines and limited knowledge. Lack of an "inner voice" is a dead giveaway that someone may be an NPC.



The NPC meme essentially meant to ridicule the post-election perpetual outrage culture in which liberals simply parrot the latest talking points from their favorite pundits, who do their thinking for them.


The 4chan version is a simple greyed out, expressionless face known as "NPC Wojak" - which has triggered the left so hard that Twitter conducted a mass-banning campaign for accounts promoting the meme, and the New York Times wrote an entire article trying to figure it out.









The Times writes of the Twitter bans:

Over the weekend, Twitter responded by suspending about 1,500 accounts associated with the NPC trolling campaign. The accounts violated Twitter’s rules against “intentionally misleading election-related content,” according to a person familiar with the company’s enforcement process. The person, who would speak only anonymously, was not authorized to discuss the decision. -NYT

There is precisely zero evidence that the accounts were spreading "intentionally misleading election-related content," so we're just going to have to take Twitter's word for it.





Origins:

According to KnowYourMeme, the NPC meme was created in 2016 after an anonymous 4chan user made a threat titled "are you an NPC?" to the /v/ video games board.




On September 5th, 2018, several threads were submitted to 4chan discussing people who did not have an "inner-voice." In the comments sections, many described those who do not have an internal monologue as "NPCs." On September 7th, a grey-colored variation of Wojak began appearing in threads about NPCs (shown below). KnowYourMeme







The triggering begins

After the meme began to spread, Twitter user @brightabyss accused those who "refer to living humans being as NPCs" as being "facist



And according to KnowYourMeme, "On September 15th, Twitter user @DreddByDawn tweeted that NPC was "dog whistle" used by "fascists." The same day, Twitter user @Sharessan accused a centrist of being a "fascist in denial" after labeling them an NPC. Meanwhile, Twitter user @stackflow33 tweeted a screenshot of the tweets along with the message "What the fuck is even going on anymore? Lmao.



Angry NPCs Twitter users continued their opposition to the meme, telling users to "report and block" anyone using the "dehumanizing" NPC meme.




Once the meme reached critical mass, it was only a matter of time before Silicon Valley did something about it:


And before they're totally scrubbed from the internet, here are a few NPC memes that slipped through the cracks:

NPCs are even getting ready for Halloween:

Just outrageously funny that leftists planet-wide are clutching their pearls over a cartoon face.

I'm not exactly sure how this is dehumanizing, being that the meme is a human face.

It seems more as though their communist foundation is being exposed in very clear terms, and that can't be tolerated.

4chan simplified:
Endless entertainment at the expense of the useful idiot crowd.

I'm looking to collect more delicious NPC meme images. Anyone have a good link or want to start a collection on this thread?

I don't have ready links but we could just start by posting the pics from this article, with the programming "code" - they're hilarious.

Ha, yeah, my new Gab.ai account had that.

Oh man, does History do a 180 degree turn. I see D&D is back to being demonized, this time because NPC is being used to describe the holders of Generic Leftist Outrage, aka TDS.

Did somebody say NPC?



Don't dehumanize me, you FASCIST! NPC MEME! ORANGE VOTING! LOSER!

I have to say this meme's brilliance is astonishing as well, maybe even better than "It's OK to be white".

1. the standard SJW response to anything is so predictable as to be robotic
2. no one wants to be a robot

The NPC meme makes it painfully apparent to every SJW that they really aren't thinking for themselves. At all.

Agreed. I just found it tonight. The fact that big tech started banning it so quickly proves its power. Imagine they are banning now random cartoon characters even if nothing offensive or crude is said at all! If this censorship wouldn't make the former USSR blush then I don't know what.

lol also many users on twitter instead of using say NPC#3465783 style handles (although those are brilliant as well) register with full screen names such as Nicholas P. Cage when they parrot/mock leftist programming (possibly to avoid scripted ban-hammers). Brilliant!

Agree, the Cult45 crew all sounds the same because they really aren’t thinking for themselves. That’s why they gleefully high five every dumb dipshit thing that they are programmed to do, not realizing that they aren’t thinking for themselves. There’s no uniqueness or dissent in the Republican voter base. Just blame the liberlas for your failures, it’s not your fault you can’t get laid


I think someone just outed herself.
LOL
I think she’s given this exact same statement about ten times now!

If you like this line of thinking, I'm convinced all the right-wing nuts on this forum are NPC trolls from Russia. Prove me wrong.
