#157 Our Response to 'Incomprehensibly Stupid' Memes & Current Events

#157 Our Response to 'Incomprehensibly Stupid' Memes & Current Events

What happens when you share a 'controversial' meme on social media?

Lots of comments and ensuing arguments.

In this podcast, Greg and Rachel respond to comments on a meme that was shared which said:

"If you've ever wondered if you would have complied during 1930s Germany, now you know."

The reactions included words and phrases including:

  • incomprehensibly stupid
  • asinine
  • comparing people who have been vaccinated to Nazi Germans
  • and a lot more...

An adequate response was not feasible in a Facebook comment, so we answered in a podcast episode instead.

Plus, it was a lot more fun that way!

"Covid is a problem but it's not the real problem. There is something bigger than that which is the real problem. Until we address the bigger problem at the bottom of the swamp, we won't really solve the problem."

We'd love to hear your feedback, questions, comments, or requests for clarification -- or show us where we were wrong!
