Yesterday, an alt-right Twitter user who’s usually responsible for gems like this:

Gave liberals a huge gift when they tweeted this:

That’s right, two people peacefully enjoying public transportation. Two women, one trans, one in a hijab, minding their own business while reducing their carbon footprint. It’s really a liberal wet dream, one that the left was happy to embrace.

But it wasn’t enough to just say “Yeah idiot, we would all like it if people could just get along and not be harassed.” This tweet was way too perfect to not be turned into a meme. In less than 24 hours it exploded, with liberals tweeting increasingly more bizarre and/or adorable pictures of possible futures under their rule.

For his part, the original tweeter was less than thrilled that his tweet has been turned on its head.

Buckle up everybody, the future is gonna be awesome.
