The new meme on block has the left in total meltdown mode. It’s probably because it’s just so dang accurate. Referring to programmed social justice warriors as NPCs is a stroke of genius.
The genius trolling campaign was born out of the characterisation of liberals as automatons incapable of independent thought on areas of Reddit and 4chan.
Fans of the NPC meme are under heavy siege. Liberals are claiming that anyone who uses the NPC meme is actually nothing more than an alt-right Nazi. They themselves don’t realize the irony in their response; how their reaction is just another one of their programmed responses that seem to be the answer to any idea that doesn’t completely line up with their own set of beliefs.
Not only is there massive outrage coming from the left at-large, the control freak technocrats from Twitter have also struck.

Twitter has suspended hundreds of accounts after a large group of brilliant users on the pro-Trump Reddit forum r/The_Donald coordinated efforts to set up ‘non-player character’ profiles mocking liberals on the social networking site.

In 24 hours there were more than 30,000 uses of the term NPC on Twitter, and Facebook pages dedicated to the trend have amassed tens of thousands of followers.
It’s a video game reference.
Non-player characters (NPCs) are controlled by the game’s artificial intelligence rather than the player him/herself. As a result, they’re limited to certain scripted responses and actions.
In a 2016 post on 4chan, one anonymous user referred to people “who autonomously follow groupthinks and social trends in order to appear convincingly human” as NPCs.
“If you get in a discussion with them it’s always the same buzzwords and hackneyed arguments,” the anonymous maverick wrote.
“It’s like in a video game when you accidentally talk to somebody twice and they give you the exact lines word for word once more.”
In recent months, the term has been adopted enthusiastically by Pro-Trump factions on the internet. It’s often used interchangeably with social justice warrior or SJW as a catch-all term for leftist regime members.
