→ Professor Jacobson Breaks Down How Pro-Liberal Internet Memes Get Started

Really interesting stuff. I always figured there was as source for a lot of these memes, and now Professor Jacobson has found it. He adds an excellent observation near the end of his post:

There is nothing like Upworthy or BuzzFeed on the right. The closest we have come is Twitchy, Michelle Malkin’s brilliant website.

Are you surprised that Obama won the youth vote even though his policies are a complete disaster for the young?

We are losing the fight to the lowest of low information voters, who are pushed toward a liberal agenda by very smart and talented people who understand the power of social media in a way we don’t.

Winning this fight is going to take a lot more than simply rebranding the message at the national level. It is going to take embracing the way that people communicate in this day and age. Frankly, I think that is one of the few places where the Republican Party is actually behind.
