I suspect like "Chad", https://www.reddit.com/r/honkler/ — Unsigned, by: Geoff The Goldfish / talk / contribs 1:43, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

This is a small subset of alt-right vocabulary, a stub, and in my opinion therefore belongs to the Alt-right glossary page. I propose we merge them. ElectrosPardon? 02:50, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

slurs make me feel grown-uppy :3[edit]

Does not meet the standards wikipedia[edit]

Most of the references used in this article are of a dubious nature and do not count as being valid sources. Nearly all other articles with such tenuous references are taken down. Why not this article? — Unsigned, by: 81.107.234.58 / talk

Elaborate. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:41, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

Lol this is not just a neo nazi or alt right meme. I suspect that like other memes (e.g. "Chad) it will go from alt right codeword to screened as acceptable in appropriate circumstances, to reddit and social media meme. In this case I could even foresee slate magazine, for example, mentioning clown world over Republicans getting a big advantage over Democrats or w/e 86.139.229.85 (talk) 00:02, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Well, it's basically a /pol/ meme, and not much more. So the best you can say is that it's shitposting, and the worst thing about lolracist shitposts is sometimes the shitposter really means it. The spread of this on the Internet seems to have been limited, as 4chan's power for spreading memes seems to be fading these days (it's a Tiktok world now, and 4Chan seems far away from the place that brought you Rickrolling and bronies back in the day). For instance, by the time this clown got to Reddit, Reddit was cracking down on /pol/ style shitposting, so r/Honkler was banned pretty quickly in 2019 for being Nazi promoting violence. No one in the outside world uses the name "Chad" as the Internet incel/red-pill communities do. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 00:31, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

This article pleasured me[edit]

Initially I wanted to comment on some things that I disagreed with, but once I finished reading the article I came to the conclusion that this is clearly the best depiction of what clown world really means, that I have ever stumbled upon. It opened my eyes. I had a decent understanding of the meaning before, at least I thought so, but this article really boils it down to the prototype of what it's supposed to mean. Thank you for that. It resulted in great pleasure for me. 2003:E7:B721:7D00:1898:1873:88F4:AD4D (talk) 21:10, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
