Apocalypse Whatever: The making of a racist, sexist religion of nihilism on 4Chan
    #24093727 - 02/15/17 09:28 PM (9 months, 23 days ago)

Full Article

Some tidbits:

Quote:

"From this perspective, it doesn’t matter whether Kek is “really” a chaos god. Sociologically speaking, he might as well be. Likewise, meme magic, to the extent that that it serves as a record of cultural engagement, is real too. So too the “reality” of ubiquitous fake news sites, which, while being wildly inaccurate propositionally, nevertheless govern events — just look at the controversy over “Pizzagate” — to an extent that renders them functionally significant: narratives, no less than an account of the Fall or salvation, that govern who we are.
...
To promulgate meme magic is to claim for oneself a higher code, a deeper freedom that derives from seeing the world as constructed, and constructable, rather than given. From this perspective, the “real” world — with its rules, its restrictions on what you can and cannot say, what you can and cannot do in public — is secular, in the sense that it lacks meaning. It is an un-sacred space, and thus nothing there can or should be treated with respect. In the world of Kek, affecting the world with racist lies and memes — all with an ironic smirk — returns the possibility of free, meaningful action to believers, and makes them heroes. The freedom to not really mean anything you say becomes the only way to have meaning in life. Irony is the greatest freedom of all."

Quote:



Among the white nationalists on 4chan’s “politically incorrect,” or /pol/ board and on “alt-right” Twitter — or anywhere you might run into a picture of Pepe the Frog — there is a cryptic but popular saying: “Praise Kek.” Kek is how World of Warcraft translates “lol” when it’s revealed to members of opposing alliances, but it is also, conveniently, a name for a serpent-headed Egyptian chaos god.

Among shitposters, these two identities have been conflated to make Kek a kind of ironicized divinity invoked to account for “meme magic” — when something espoused and affirmed in the digital realm also becomes true beyond it. Memes about Hillary Clinton being sick, for example, “came true” when she collapsed of pneumonia this past September 11. And Fidel Castro’s death — occurring on the capitalist holiday of Black Friday — has been making the Twitter rounds with the same “praise Kek” tag.

Most of the people posting about Kek don’t actually believe that Pepe the Frog is an avatar of an ancient Egyptian chaos god, or that the numerology of 4chan “gets” — when posts are assigned a fortuitous ID number — somehow predicted Donald Trump’s presidential victory. (Theodør K. Ferreøl goes into more detail about that claim here.) It’s a joke, of course — but also not a joke. As one self-identified active member of the alt-right told me, “I don’t believe in God. But I say ‘Praise Kek’ more than I’ve ever said anything about God.”

4chan is and always has been the cancer of the internet. It spawning it's own fucked up memeligion is only par for the course.

I didn't know about any of this meme bullshit/retard frog til I first saw it here not long ago. A pocket of the internet I never wandered...

I don't have a Facebook (never have, likely never will) so I don't have people pushing their goofy political opinions from that source. And also while I do follow current events and politics I tend to focus more on the left who are dominating my state and life here in this waste land known as cook county/IL

Same thing with this alt right bs, only  heard about it for the first time a few months ago. Which by description sounds good at first. You know, an alternative to mainstream conservatism... Unfortunately it's not that.. Definitely not a group I'm in support of.

I think lefties gravitate towards this minority group so they can say "see this is what the right is like."

I don't think these memes made a huge difference. I'd wager most of your baby boomers/elderly voters weren't influenced by this meme crap. Furthermore I believe most people have/had their opinions set already and were not swayed by any of this idiocy.

that's fair.

i think there is alot more people that make up the alt-right than those whom just "check it out", though. those who just "check it out", aren't really representative of the alt-right, is what i am getting at.

also: in regards to the alt-right: there are probably alot of alt-righters that'd not only disagree with you, but they'd vehemently state "no normies allowed" and proceed to shitpost about (((The Tribe))), and telling you to stop spreading such vile lies about the alt-right. :lol:

most of the baby boomers were irrelevant...it was the younger voter that swung the election. :shrug: the memes definitely got them on board. otherwise...Trump would have had the support of the baby boomers, but not near as much support from young voters, who would have kept to their liberal ideology, instead of focusing more on the alt-right, like you described above. :shrug: in my opinion.

Ahh but you see the vastly liberal controlled media led me to believe the youth in large part were against trump so I'm kinda confused..

The youth were the ones to tip the scales to a trump victory? I honestly doubt it. I think of the youth that did vote for trump, only a minority were self-identified as alt-right.

The baby boomers and the elderly probably outweigh the millenials in voter turnout. Don't quote me on that, it's just that past trends would back my belief up..
