This Tweet About "The Future Liberals Want" Went In A Direction The Creator Did Not See Coming
These people took the "future liberals want" tweet in a far different direction than the original poster intended.
If you needed further evidence that we live in two Americas right now, it's this recent political tweet and the responses that follow. On Wednesday, the Twitter account of /pol/ News Network posted this photo and denounced it as "the future that liberals want." However, what was intended to be a takedown of the "liberal agenda" turned into somewhat of a self-own, given the response from progressives.
The general response was "you say that like it's a bad thing!"
The photo shows a drag queen seated on the right and, on the left, a Muslim woman wearing a niqab, a veil that covers everything by the area around the eyes. They are both seated on a subway, facing forward and acting like everything is normal. Because, in NYC, that is normal. Nobody thinks twice about seeing a Muslim woman in hijab or someone wearing full drag, whether they're separate or together. It's a melting pot!
Twitter users were quick to point out that this looked like a pretty good future.
Others also saw the need to invest in public transport systems.
While some were concerned that anyone who didn't like the photo might be a snowflake.
It became a meme almost immediately, with Twitter users sharing their version of what they want...
I want this in my future.
Well that backfired quickly.
