Where the hell is r/The_Donald?
It’s the Reddit site where Trump supporters live.
Amazing how someone managed to count the numerous references on social media.
Nice graphics in the article.
Seems like some actual reporting.
Have the times or cnn doxxed the person who came up with the meme, yet?
I’m sure they cheated a bit by counting only the sites with large followers. Even still, it’s probably statistically valid.
Pretty sure Scott Adams coined the term.

They are sure as hell trying to. Or link it to a Russian, of course.
Its in there:
// Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoon strip, quickly endorsed jobs not mobs as a potential slogan. Because of the cartoonists popularity among the pro-Trump crowd online, this was a key moment. //
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.
“Pretty sure Scott Adams coined the term.”
that’s what i thought too ...
If we successfully retain control of House and Senate tomorrow, I would like to spread this meme on every lib forum
Trump: All your base are belong to us
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.
