Andrew Yang's #YangGang Takes In Former Trump Meme Scientists To Learn Meme Magic
#YangGang is in full effect, but doesn't the style and some of the characters in their memes look familiar? Andrew Yang's campaign of supporters seems to be taking in former Trumpers who are very good at making memes to their credit. So good that it appears they've been given a pardon by the non-Trump members of #YangGang in exchange to revealing the secret of meme magic.
"Yeah, Andrew Yang's idea of a universal basic income has attracted some broke Trump supporters," said Twitter profile YangGangGangGang. "They've brought Pepe and the NPC memes along with them, but as long as it's not memed in a racist fashion we're okay with it. They've shown us the way to meme magic and now we're overtaking Trump's internet followers in the Great Meme War, according to Wikileaks."
2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang spoke with Flake News reporters, saying, "Do you want to become super successful and make big money just like me? Vote for me for president and I give you all $1,000 for each month of your life. That's universal basic income. Plus, I'll throw in free chicken tendies. Your bed time can be whatever you want it to be. You'll get a real wall of money in 2020."
Yang has disavowed white nationalist Richard Spencer who tweeted, "Trumpism was the fantasy that America can be we saved. Yangism is the awareness that it can't."
Pepe the Frog, who appears in some of the #YangGang memes, was labelled a 'hate symbol' by the Southern Poverty Law Center. However, it appears most of #YangGang have co-opted this joke meme cartoon in a non-racist manner in an effort to win the Great Meme War. Pepe was not originally created for racist intentions and the majority of people using him aren't using him for those intentions. It's a joke cartoon frog which could be used for many purposes. There have been some people who have for whatever reason posted Nazi Pepe, but there's a Pepe for nearly everything under the sun. By this logic, SPLC could say that the golden arches of McDonalds is a hate symbol because there have certainly been racist customers/employees at that establishment at one time or another. But logically, of course not. And once again, people aren't able to tell comedy from hate speech (just ask Count Dankula).
"The U.S. gives out tens of billions of dollars worth of aid to foreign governments each year, what's so dangerous about investing in Americans at home instead?", tweeted out YangDragon2020. "The wall isn't going to be made as promised since Trump's government is too busy protecting random countries' borders six thousand miles away. In other words, they're too busy making Israel great again. That's why we gotta secure that bag, get those chicken tendies, and make healthcare a birthright. Also, with Yang's plan, we can nap nap whenever we want and it's going to be awesome."
"We're off to secure that bag, normies," said Twitch user YangGangVenti. "Now, gtfo off my stream, REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE."
