Know Your Duke for Senate Meme, Part One, Two, Three and to the Four …
Dr. Duke’s Twitter game began inauspiciously with a series of super-lame memes almost cuckservative in their total lack of imagination. Committed volunteers, however, would rush to block the breach and would produce their own assortment of much livelier images for the Duke campaign – on a strictly unofficial basis, of course, and whether the Duke campaign itself had use for these or not.
So apparently one of the talking M&Ms from the television commercials got both of its legs and one of its arms chopped off at some fancy white-glove affair and is pissed off at the Louisiana Republican Party for some reason. Mr. Peanut, one assumes, had a scheduling conflict and the only talent the agency could dig up on such short notice was a disgruntled amputee piece of candy rocking an Elvis Presley sneer.
Okay, slight improvement … Duke is looking good and ready to get down to business, and the sour-faced old codger fumbling with a sticker or something appears to be capable of severely scolding the competition … and the groovy “S” in the pirate lettering sort of looks like a moping worm or a snake or something, I guess, which is cool.
Okay, no disrespect to Dr. Duke and his campaign team, but … seriously, what the fuck is this? George Washington might have been a great man, but nobody wants to see his creepy face on a Twitter timeline. Secondly, how many Twitter addicts even know what the word “impostures” means? This meme might as well have been ripped straight out of the Mark Levin Guide to How to Make Politics as Boring as Bagels.
This one demonstrates that David Duke has a sense of humor and can have a laugh at the fact that so much of his candidacy’s support has tended to “fly under the radar”, producing what is known as the “Duke Effect”: he comes in roughly twice as popular as the polling would indicate because voters are hesitant to admit they support him. The slogan refers to Duke’s advocacy for police officers as well as his commitment to the freedom of expression that so many are too scared to exercise in public.
Nothing wrong with this picture: Duke identifies his campaign and his message with the beauty of nature, of western women and western civilization. More eye-catching and photogenic than George Washington any day.
Part of the first wave of do-it-yourself shitlord David Duke memes, this one decorates the candidate with the classic “deal with it” shades. The skull-head freak in the background is funny, but probably not the best association for his campaign. An infectiously mirthful meme in any case.
One of the earliest Duke for Senate memes was also one of the weirdest. David Duke ice cream? Eat up, kids!
It was inevitable that Pepe the Frog of 4chan infamy, cartoon folk hero and shitlord star of thousands of memes in the alternative media, would hop on the campaign hate bus with Duke. This may have been the first image to link the two.
Another Pepe the Frog Duke meme. The tiny, cocktail-umbrella-sized flag is an odd but interesting choice. The simplicity of the imagery and the basic color palette make this an unremarkable but effective piece of marketing.
Pepe is smaller and less obtrusive, more like Duke’s sidekick in this meme, which recalls the candidate’s appearance on The Alex Jones Show to discuss the history of Jewish wrongdoing and hostility to Europeans. The message takes priority over the lulz, with pocket-sized Pepe lurking in the corner, smirking at the thought of the butthurt Jews.
This one speaks pretty well for itself. Blue skies, classical architecture, Aryan looks, and a smile.
This admittedly silly meme was designed to capitalize on the viral #PokemonGO hashtag.
This weird one, sometimes accompanied by the #CruisinWithDuke hashtag, is a riff on the notorious “Laughing Tom Cruise” meme and serves as the ultimate “You mad bro?” to throw in the faces of Twitter haters.
One of the earliest MemeGenerator images to be associated with the Duke for Senate campaign, this variation on the famous moment from The Matrix cuts to the heart of the irrational idiocy and hypocrisy of the candidate’s detractors.
Duke’s record of anti-war advocacy is unassailable – an aspect of his platform which understandably receives little or no publicity.
Too late, babe. Ha – got you!
Still trying to confirm this. Tweeter discretion is advised.
Inspired by a famous clip of Tupac being rather rambunctious (“Have a good summer, beyatch!“), this surprisingly inclusive meme energizes the black vote and shows the lengths to which black Duke supporters will go to defend the honor of their favorite post-postracial candidate. Brothas be out there spittin’ on anti-racists and shit.
The senatorial candidate formerly known as Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke in a still from the motion picture Purple Racist.
Artwork typical of the Trumpenfuhrer’s fan base, heroicizing the candidate as a glamorous mushroom cloud survivor and superhuman villainy-vaporizer inspired by the Duke Nukem video game series.
Another Duke Nukem variation, this one illustrating the maverick Republican candidate’s ease with modern mutant disposal techniques.
The Dank One, one of the premier meme-generators for Duke on Twitter, situates Louisiana’s aspiring senator on a perilous, lightning-scorched battlefield representative of the elemental forces arrayed against him. Significantly, Duke remains unafraid of the challenge, the flaps of his red headband fluttering elegantly in the winds of war and the electrical storm of negative mainstream media coverage.
Just a reminder that Ricky Vaughn, so gung-ho for Bibi’s buddy Trump, remains AWOL on the overtly identitarian Duke campaign.
“One, two, three and to the four. Pepe Froggy Frogg and Dr. Duke is at your door. Ready to make an entrance, so back on up, ’cause you know we’re ’bout to wake whites up.” This Aryan Skynet original riffs on Dr. Dre’s gangsta rap opus The Chronic, incorporating both a streetwise dope-smoking shitlord Pepe and notorious Trayvon Martin acquaintance Rachel “Creepy-Ass Cracka” Jeantel.
A Cracka sequel meme reflecting frustration with the reluctance of the Alt-Right’s leadership to embrace and promote Duke’s bid for the Senate. Spencer would post a Radix interview with Dr. Duke the day after this bad boy was tweeted.
So just chill … till the next episode.
