The ubiquitous bemittened Bernie meme
is now a wheatpaste... as seen above on 13th Street at Avenue A... and here on Bleecker and the Bowery...
... and outside Overthrow, the boxing gym on Bleecker near the Bowery... Bernie is wearing boxing gloves instead of hand-knitted mittens...

That is just great - what a riot!!!
No idea what people find so hilarious still. I’ve seen ~2 funny memes from it.
Another guy who seems to be strongly against American governmental policies.

That was fast what's next, "Banksy" version ?
Needs more Coooooooooooool.....
The arbitrary quality of it and seeing it in so many contexts
Bernie is an icon of real grassroots power working within the system to change it, that's why you are seeing his image everywhere.
Without him exerting his considerable influence on the Democratic Party, we would still be in the grip of morally bankrupt Reaganomics for the foreseeable, if not outright Trumpian fascism.
We all owe him a debt of our gratitude and, to me at least, that's what the meme represents.
It's just a whole lot of fun and he approves! But we must be wary of putting any ONE PERSON on a pedestal. This is not what Democracy is about. It's a form of fascism... if we haven't learned that over the past few weeks we are doomed. Love Bernie but he is not god. He'd be the first to admit that. Democracy is an act and a lifetime responsibility.
"The entire dream of democracy is to raise the proletariat to the level of bourgeois stupidity."
