On Wednesday, far-right Twitter user @polNewsNetwork1 denounced this photo as "the future that liberals want."

And right off the bat, it kiiiiind of backfired.

Imagine getting your panties in a bunch over people literally just sitting there existing https://t.co/rNI4QVDfoy

OH MY GOD! 2 PEOPLE MINDING THEIR BUSINESS ON THE BUS! CALL THE POLICE! https://t.co/gtEgUo4o0L

@polNewsNetwork1 two people calmly sitting on a bus. oh the horror! I thought it was the SJWs who were supposed to be easily offended πŸ€”

In fact, people were like, "Yeah, actually. That's exactly what we want. Bingo."

religious freedom, kicky daytime drag looks, and a robust public transit program? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP. https://t.co/6p24MIW9ZF

I don't want to say "literally, yeah" but also...literally, yeah. https://t.co/JGMhLbHWMq

@polNewsNetwork1 oooo heaven is a place on earth

And some said it's not just the future they want β€” it's the present, too.

One where people mind their damn business & don't harm others for being different? Affirmative. This is the present… https://t.co/TIcnr2qD3c

This is the present. The future is this, but without someone taking your damn photo the whole time. https://t.co/mRZQS72lfs

Then, naturally, people came with the memes.
