I don’t think it’s fair to deadpool a meme just because it isn’t popular in English speaking countries. If you can show it has a fair amount of spread in the Czech, I’m all for supporting a confirm.

This raises a question; do memes have language barriers? Do memes we have in English not spread to users whose first language is not English?
Tenso was originally Spanish, and that arguably stretched to English-speaking users without being translated. Nyan Cat clearly has no language barriers. Ragefaces are popular in other languages as well. Pretty much any meme that is an exploitable, an image macro, an advice dog spinoff, a song, or a viral video that isn’t dialogue-based doesn’t have language barriers.
What about others though? Are there French versions of One Does Not Simply X Into Mordor? Are there Spanish versions of the Ocean Marketing Emails parodies? Are there Russian versions of What Is This I Don’t Even?
