Oregon Legislature Starts a Meme War

This isn’t an example of a single meme, but it is an example of how meme culture and use has spread from fun on the internet to Serious Business.

The Republican Party in Oregon made a meme to criticize the Democratic-controlled legislature’s agenda. The Democratic party then fired back accusing the Republican party of trying to astroturf memes.

Is this the future of our nation’s political debate?

Reminds me of the time they Rickrolled Us.

Well I could expect no less of Oregon. KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD!!

Well I guess there’s one thing we should say about this…

…but it’s meme research, so it’d be off topic.

Well I have no idea about this, but it seems somewhat notable already, just there isn’t much reception.

There used to be a phrase “the internet is leaking” but I think now the dam is broken.

Not only is the internet leaking, it is bleeding profusely. Astroturf everywhere.

Did the Republicans reply or anything?
