Stuff to mention[edit]

In bullet point form on talk page because I can't be bothered properly editing the article right now & haven't read all of these sources yet. Feel free to integrate any of this, or else I'll try & come back to it later.

Kek[edit]

Kek comes from the old days of world of warcraft. When a human or orc in the game said "lol", the other one would see "kek" in the chat box. This is a will know meme in gameing. I don't know why its here.— Unsigned, by: 107.72.164.100 / talk / contribs 15:26, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Because Kek also happens to be the name of a Egyptian Chaos God who is a frog. Since Pepe was trending at the time 4chan realized this, they have associated Pepe with a chaos god who shares a name with a WoW meme. 74.77.221.89 (talk) 01:15, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Why waste time on Pepe ?[edit]

Been on 9gag for a while, and I saw many people using the meme, but never for nationalist meanings. Frankly, it's useless to waste time on a fucking frog, there's literally no point in having a page on a meme, while we could try to make pages on actual politics/pseudoscience/conspiracy theories.

Wow, so that's a helpful tone. Honestly, I wish you knew the basics. And yeah, notice which site that is. Even TOW finds Pepe notableWikipedia's W.svg, and that's without sharing our particular profile of highlighting all things related to fringe- and hate movements.

Trump and Pepe, sittin' in a tree...[edit]

While this is a mashup (the pose to the right most likely being coincidental), the tweet to the left is not fake. Old news, but Trump actually tweeted that. Seen here as part of a mashup from, you guessed it — the Daily Stormer. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:02, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Pepe in Spain[edit]

In Spanish Pepe is just is a pet form of the Spanish name José nd is extremely common. No wonder there is a "Casa Pepe" in Spain or that ome people called Pepe (wich again, is perhaps the most common name in Spain) happen to be fascists.90.165.105.215 (talk) 20:45, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
