It’s the Reddit site where Trump supporters live.

I’m sure they cheated a bit by counting only the sites with large followers. Even still, it’s probably statistically valid.

They are sure as hell trying to. Or link it to a Russian, of course.

It’s in there:

// Scott Adams, the creator of the “Dilbert” cartoon strip, quickly endorsed “jobs not mobs” as a potential slogan. Because of the cartoonist’s popularity among the pro-Trump crowd online, this was a key moment. //

Interesting piece.

It’s a demonstration that the slogan is effective. The slimes is trying to deconstruct it by searching for a target to freeze. They would not waste their time if the slogan wasnt causing pain.

Honestly, this was such an in-your-face-obvious slogan that it could have originated anywhere. I thought of it myself, before I started seeing it from others. It’s responsible for its own popularity and none of the nodes on the chart were necessary.

My understanding is that one of the outlawed items in the proposed European internet intellectual property legislation is memes. Now we have a graphic showing why.

It is nice to see the commies get a head start on their "why we lost" excuses to be used for the next 2, 4, 6, ..., 128 years.

Google has a “trending” tool that allows a person to search on a word or phrase, and the bubble graphics are an easy output from several data analysis programs.
