I'm placing this in "2016 US Elections" because it's all about the 2016 Election in a strange sort of way and I couldn't find a place that seemed a
better fit. Apologies to the mods if I chose poorly.
When Hillary Clinton's team identified Pepe the Frog as a symbol of the alt-right and by relation white supremacy, many people scorned her for failing
to understand Pepe's significance in Internet culture and for foolishly misidentifying the symbol. And they were right to do so. While the symbol of
Pepe is undeniably used in that context, it is used as a meme in an incredible variety of contexts and that is only one of them. But what if the meme
have an ultimate significance? What if it has an inherited occult meaning? What if it has an occult power
? What if this is not just
a meme? What if it is in fact a powerful symbol intended (consciously or unconsciously) to bring about a result?
That's Ridiculous ... Isn't It?
It sounds that way, doesn't it? Of course, the notion of an anthropomorphic frog becoming a symbol embraced by white nationalists also catches one off
guard. The whole theory (which did not start with me) sounds ridiculous, but it has a strangely compelling ring to it. But what if gods, or
archetypes of gods, are always present but rarely real. Let's say that usually they exist in the way that a blueprint exists. What if their stories
and their imprints in human consciousness can under certain circumstances be realized. This would be why in the practice of Voodoo and some South
American religions, people attempt to commune with their gods in altered states of consciousness. They try to create the preconditions that allow
the gods to realize themselves
. But what if it were possible for this to happen on the Internet, via meme, whether by accident or by intent?
4chan, dubs, and Kek
Kek, like Pepe, "dubs", and Trump, are adored things in the /pol/ channel of 4chan, where it's hard to find the line where earnest belief ends and
trolling begins. It is a place where people revel in being politically incorrect in every way that they can. Insults and memes are flung about
chaotically and flining words that would have you 86'd from a drinking establishment in a heartbeat is celebrated here. "Kek" is essentially a new
version of LOL and "dubs" are when the final digits of your unique post number are repeated in your next post. Almost a sign of good luck. Kek is
also, it turns out, an Egyptian god of darkness and chaos...
...who happens to be depicted as an anthropomorphic frog
"dubs" in this community can be a bit like magic. People invest in the idea that incredibly improbable runs of repeated numbers might signify an
outcome in terms of what is being discussed. This stroke of luck is called a "GET". And this is where things take an interesting turn. It is
asserted by the source that got me interested in all of this that Trump-related posts were known for the frequent appearance of these GETs, far beyond
what probability would say should be expected. So we have an unlikely confluence here; a meme that has been chosen by /pol/ as a sort of beloved
mascot which happens to be an anthropomorphic frog, an Egyptian god of darkness and chaos who is also
an anthropomorphic frog, some of the most
animated Trump supporters on the Internet, and a lot of bell-ringing in terms of unlikely coincidences surrounding discussions of which Trump was the
subject. That's all a little weird, right?
Uh, Chaos Magick?
Yeah. To put it shortly for those who are unfamiliar, Chaos Magick could be described as a non-dogmatic system of Magick built on the notion that
reality can be manipulated and that methods for doing this can be discovered through experimentation. There generally are no rituals, magick words,
gods to sacrifice to. There are simply methods that individual practitioners believe work for them and these methods are shared in books and within
the community. One of the most common techniques is to create a sigil that encapsulates intent. One way of doing this is to write out the intention
as a sentence and then take each letter of each word of the sentence and weave them into an image that is unique but recognizable to you as a symbol
of your intention. While concentrating on the image, you do something that causes a very intense sensation or emotion; for example, inflicting pain
upon yourself. This is thought to be a sort of shortcut that helps to project your will into the universe, perhaps by interfering with the parts of
your consciousness that would otherwise act as a governing mechanism. When a sigil is seen by many, it becomes a "hypersigil" -- thought to be
exponentially more powerful than an ordinary sigil, channeling the emotional experience of everyone who interacts with it.
The theory is that Pepe became a hypersigil representing the will of the /pol/ members to see the political order overturned by Mr. Trump.
Around 9/11/2016, three major events occurred that were fortuitous for Trump's campaign and which were surprising to observers, to put it mildly:
* Hillary Clinton's health flap in NYC
* Hillary Clinton's declaration that Pepe is a symbol to be reviled - a bizarre thing to mention at all
* A B-side called "Magic Sound" featuring a frog holding a magic wound recorded by the artist "P.E.P.E" was found by /pol/ members
Summary - See For Yourself
In essence the idea is that Kek was summoned either intentionally or unintentionally and Kek chose Donald Trump as his vehicle for bringing on an era
of darkness. Kek influences the world by causing the dice to "roll wrong". You know, things like actual vote outcomes to differ wildly from what the
professionals expect, or Clinton experiencing a very unlucky episode of weakness on camera, or her campagin wrongheadedly deciding to declare war on a
meme and then totally dropping it
. If one were to buy into any of this, there is a smidge of optimism in the picture: Kek is part of a
duality, and after Kek's reign of darkness comes the day.
This whole theory essentially comes from this blog:
I've left much out in the interests of being succinct and I strongly suggest you read the theory and check out the various screenshots yourself if you
find this interesting in the least.
