Overview

Begging Leftist Comic Artists To Stop Adding Unnecessary Text is a viral tweet that inspired a meme trend in webcomic and leftist communities on X / Twitter in late June 2024. The catchphrase and a red crossed-out version of a Haus of Decline comic was posted by X account @LinkofSunshine alongside a post commending conservative webcomic artist Stonetoss for his brevity. Haus of Decline's assertion that they "straight up don't like" @LinkofSunshine and don't appreciate their critique led to a trend in which people posted crossed-out versions of webcomics alongside the phrase, "on my knees begging leftist comic artists to stop adding unnecessary text holy shit."

Developments

Haus of Decline and @LinkofSunshine continued to spar in the replies to the post on June 22nd, 2024, with Haus of Decline writing, "This isn't that much text. I just think you don't like to read, which would explain your general vibe of abject stupidity." The artist also called @LinkofSunshine's viral Firebomb a Walmart tweet "one of the dumbest tweets ever made."[6]

In response to @LinkofSunshine saying that she should "learn how to take any minor criticism without devolving into personal attacks," Haus of Decline wrote, "but I straight up don't like you on a personal level," gathering over 34,000 likes in two days (seen below, right).[7]

Honestly, I am disappointed by how many bad faith arguments and comparisons a fairly normal, constructive and midly comedic tweet got.

from accusations of transphobia.

to comparing it with whole ass story based comics.

to accusations of being some sort of "secret nazi" for using an example from stonetoss (who he btw, called a dumbfuck)

and I am convinced this bad faith response happened specifically because it was basil of all people who did it, and a LOT of left leaning people dont like basil, not only because people are still pissy about the whole "firebomb a wallmart" thing but because he is not the right kind of leftist.

its similar to how people treat shoeonhead, shoe is very left leaning, but because she doesnt actively screams for bloody revolution every 2.5 seconds ,would rather try to convince/talk to people of the opposite isle or neutral isles,and worse of all: CRITIZICES the left's methodology she is seem as the wrong kind of leftist as therefore the enemy.

some people are so fucking centered on ideological purity they cannot see past their own fucking asses (btw, before you type, yes, this ISNT exclusive to the left)
