Trump’s Occult Online Supporters Believe ‘Meme Magic’ Got Him Elected
The establishment media decided to take notice of meme magic, a phenomena which isn't news to anyone following Trump, the alt-right, synchromysticism, or the CT community.

http://motherboard.vice.com/read/trumps-...im-elected
Quote:Ferréol is detailing what he calls “memetic warfare.” The technique involves charging a symbol, which will then act as a proxy for a clandestine plan. In occult tradition, this is known as chaos magic. The image could be something as abstract as a hieroglyphic doodle, which a group decides will bring them, say, jobs or food or spouses. The image just has to be widely seen, even subliminally, so that it can seed the minds of the larger population and bring about real world results. (If you think this sounds a bit like hypnotism, you’re right.)

In the case of Trump’s victory, though, the supposedly responsible image is Pepe, who’s widely seen on social media. This is a new era of chaos magic, fueled by viral sharing: enter the world of meme magic. According to this occult online army, Trump is set to be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States thanks to their viral efforts. Not the economy. Not voter psychology. Not Paul Horner, purveyor of fake Trump news. But a frog meme.

Not just any old frog, though. And that’s something both sides of the debate will argue.

Via Twitter

Oren Segal is director of the Center on Extremism, a wing of the Anti-Defamation League. Segal maintains a database of over 200 memes which he says “put hate on display.” Pepe is one of those memes, but Segal is working closely with Matt Furey, the frog’s creator, in order to “reclaim” Pepe for less contentious causes.

“I know him well,” Segal said, referring to Pepe. “Even in our database we mention that there are so many ways to use the symbol. A lot of good people use this frog. That’s the concept of a meme, it can be manipulated.”

Segal said he first looks at the frequency and volume of a meme being broadcast on various social media channels, especially Twitter. “Once extremists started using it, we added it to our database,” he added.

When I asked Segal if these groups were in fact extremist, he didn’t miss a beat.

“Uh, yeah,” he said.

These practitioners of meme magic include Lawrence Murray, a prolific “alt right” blogger who’s posted FAQs about white nationalism and whose Twitter avatar features Pepe riding a white horse. Motherboard reached out to Murray to find out whether he and others like him were linking a Trump vote to a larger agenda. Fittingly, Murray and several of his peers replied to requests for comment only via Twitter by sending multiple examples of what they considered to be the most potent meme magic.

Other public figures, like Jordan Peterson, a popular psychology professor at the University of Toronto, have found their social media accounts caught up in this meme magic whirlwind. After Peterson posted a video of himself wearing Canadian aboriginal headwear in the shape of a frog, his followers in the Pepe-for-Trump camp erupted, claiming that the cartoon frog was speaking through Peterson. Peterson is currently embroiled in an academic debate with university administrators over what constitutes the goal of modern higher education. He could not be reached for comment before publication.

This last point is crucial, however, because occult followers of Pepe have latched onto Peterson and, of course, President-elect Trump for similar reasons: They view Pepe as an anti-establishmentarian fighting for truth, in alignment with other truth tellers. Trump himself seems to be aware of this community, if tweeting a version of himself as Pepe—a move that prompted Hillary Clinton to issue a denouncement of the meme—is any indication.

And so began the idea that plastering Pepe everywhere would guarantee a Trump victory.

The rabbit hole goes deeper. Pepe’s followers look for synchronicity everywhere, building up a mythos from something that began as an innocuous cartoon character. This is the power of meta-history. When residents on notorious image-based online bulletin board 4chan dug up an Egyptian frog god named Kek, they learned he was a disruptive deity that shakes up basic etiquette and assumptions. Thus they reasoned: Pepe is just a modern day Kek, and both of these frog gods are like the iconoclastic Trump.

From there, these same 4channers have found other strange frog connections, and gotten into the habit of making an unusual kind of bet. When someone posts a message or picture on a 4chan thread, their entry is marked with a multiple-digit, randomly-generated number in the comment thread, like a personal UPC. In other words, no one knows what the number will be beforehand. So Pepe enthusiasts started betting that posts featuring Pepe would end in double digits.

Meme magic is real. Pepe, the avatar of Lord Kek on this plane of existence, has the power to manipulate morphogenic fields just like the Lemurians of old.

My oldest son was invited to be a part of the facebook group for these guys. It's very strange how it operates.

If a trend/wave of memes goes viral, does it not affect the consciousness of huge masses of people?
Does it not alter the way the public as a whole thinks, or sees the world?

Whether there are actually 'magical' elements at work or not, the effect is basically the same, no?

Memes are powerful shit. They have the power to counter the mainstream media's stranglehold on our reality, and anyone can make them. They don't even have to look good.

Yes.

^ however, the ease of this power is seriously able to be mis-used...

Any fuck at home has the potential to make a meme that can go viral, even if the message behind it is shite or wrong.

I still prefer this to the days when the only ones able to get a mass-message out were the elites

It's interesting to note that Pepe/Kek's meme magic & green language are the same thing. (other names for the same phenomena: language of the birds, twilight language, synchronicity, angelic script, sandhya bhasha, etc.)

Michael A. Hoffman II gets to the bottom line:

"Ritual murder is mind control. It's not always earth compensation for sacrilegious tampering. It can be ceremonial, possessing a liturgy that uses twilight language to imprint the Group Mind, the entity that is formed psychically when large numbers of people are intently focused on the same object, image or symbol...

"Some people assume that I believe that all these developments are part of a microscopically orchestrated 'masterplan' devised by invincible Freemasons. But the cryptocrats are just highly informed weathermen possessed of extraordinary daring. They had a sense of what direction the wind of time, the 'spirit of the age' would take, but that doesn't mean they control the wind, or that they are the wind.

"...A substantial portion of the power of secret societies comes from hitching a ride on coincidence. In your opening statement you said that it remains to be seen whether the occult connections I study 'are deliberate or merely coincidental.'

"To me it's the same thing. Ritual cannot rely exclusively on human machination to obtain the full effect."
(Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, pgs. 128-130)

good stuff with bringing up twilight language.. very few know about it and it may be a partial origin of the hidden but not so hidden occultism everywhere in the western world
