The Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA), an extreme left-wing socialist political group that describes itself as "activists committed to democracy as not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society" and which counts Bernie Sanders, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar as members, posted a meme template on its website last night to celebrate that it had eclipsed 300,000 twitter followers.
The link embedded within the tweet, took users to a page (which has since been deleted) that allowed them to add a photo, their name, their location and why they joined the DSA. Users could then generate an image to post from their twitter accounts to help celebrate their alliance with the DSA. This is NOT what happened. Rather, this tweet was quickly discovered by our own @soylent_lament and shared with the masses for maximum mockery:
The rest of the Twittersphere soon followed suit and the DSA's twitter thread has become a landing spot for some of the funniest memes of the week. A collection of them is provided below for your enjoyment:
Have a good weekend. God Bless America.
