Maar voor hen die niet bekend zijn met de materie, hieronder een Engelstalige edoch zeer interessante en complete uitleg die deels gaat over Kek, afkomstig van de leute van Wired... Leest U even mee???
WITCHES, FROG-GODS, AND THE DEEPENING SCHISM OF INTERNET RELIGIONS

IN ITS FOUR decades, the internet has seen a lot of conceptual alchemy, but there's nothing quite so odd as the Cult of Kek. The maybe-maybe-not religion is the brainchild of the so-called alt-right, some of whom claim to believe not only in white supremacy, but also in the supremacy of an ancient Egyptian deity called Kek.

The logic goes thusly: There's Pepe the Frog, the unofficial mascot of the alt-right. There's also an ancient (and real) Egyptian chaos-god named Kek who happened have a frog's head. And then there's "kek," a World of Warcraft-derived word that became part of 4chan's trolling toolbox. Alt-righties mashed the two things together to create the Cult of Kek, a catch-all ism that can invoke the power of Kek via “meme magic.” All those Trump/Pepe memes you saw during the 2016 presidential election? That was trolling, but it was also the Cult of Kek memeing the Trump Presidency into existence. Well, in their eyes, anyway. And maybe not even then.

On its face, it seems like prime fodder for Poe's Law, which states that it's impossible to know if someone online is joking or not. But when a user on notorious subreddit r/The_Donald asked asked if "any of us actually worship Pepe," the responses were ... mixed.

Meanwhile, on the other end of internet culture’s ideological spectrum, you have the witches of Tumblr. Witchblr (a real thing) isn't so much a community of Wiccans as much as it is a millennial-pink confection, studded with crystals and presented by tea-drinking women in flower crowns twirling through meadows—served alongside recipes for patriarchy-strangling tincture and a few choice emoji hexes guaranteed to ruin President Trump’s day. It was also Tumblr's 11th-largest community last year, at least ranked by the number of hashtagged posts it spawned. (Tenth-largest? Retiblr.)

The Witchblr is in many ways the Cult of Kek's opposite—it’s predominantly female, it’s not overtly racist, it prizes self-care over "triggering normies"—but both manage, despite their cheek-rooted tongues, to take on a spiritual affect.

The internet giving birth to new religions, or new versions of existing religions, is just another sign of it becoming a real place. But what ties Witchblr and the Cult of Kek together, despite their diametrically opposed viewpoints, is that each is dissatisfied with the real world and their inability to change those circumstances, and thus each has created its own sheltering cosmology. Followers of both send violent or violence-connoting images to their enemies (who are, at least in part, each other). And because each seems to comprise a mix of ironic and genuine believers—and because the internet is overrun with that nihilistic, post-truth “lol nothing matters” point of view right now—each has the potential to be a little dangerous. And that makes them hard to know what do with.

Kek Starter

If your brain is still trying to process the fact that millennials think they’re witches and worship the Egyptian deification of primordial darkness, let’s back up. Belief is fundamental to human culture. If you’re being purely objective, there’s very little difference between spreading the word of Kek and proselytizing for a more socially acceptable prophet. “The consensus is that the internet speeds up the same processes that always made up folklore,” says Jeffrey Tolbert, a folklorist at Bucknell University. “Think of it as the telephone game. All of that happens a lot faster on the internet, and it’s a lot more visible.”

Which makes sense, as long as you don’t think of technology as the opposite of spirituality, as many people tend to do. But actually, the supernatural and (to the non-technical) the mysterious black box of technology mesh together quite well. Tech can either lend a kind of scientific authority, or provide a blank digital canvas welcoming of screwy new ideas. “As soon as there’s tech, people will incorporate it. Look at ghost hunters,” says Lynne McNeill, a folklorist at Utah State University.

But, McNeill says, there's a more interesting comparison to make: “The best example of the ability to embody a fictionalized world on the internet is probably fan fiction. Suddenly fiction is no longer something you can only access from the outside. We can redraw the boundaries of reality.” That's the kind of flexibility the supernatural needs to flourish.

Even the communication medium of the internet is ripe for the occult. According to McNeill, the internet’s focus on the visual—think: emojis, memes and gifs in place of text alone—has brought back symbolic communication, something most religions are steeped in.

Kek worship and Tumblr's version of witchcraft aren’t the first religions to burst forth from the internet's skull, and all of them are similarly shining examples of Poe’s Law. The realest of them is probably Pastafarianism—the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which started as a satirical protest against teaching intelligent design in schools, then became a meme and acquired thousands of followers. (You may have even seen a car bedecked with its Fry Guy-meets-Sebastian emblem.)

Then there’s Cthulhu, who started as a monster in HP Lovecraft's fiction and became a quasi-ironic demonic cult leader who contacts (and brainwashes) followers in their dreams. Many of the octopus-headed god-things followers admit they’re roleplaying, but also that not everyone is.

But the quasi-belief that really shows how these things can go sideways is Slender Man. The now-iconic internet boogieman got his start as an online game that boiled down to "come up with the scariest photoshopped image possible." Still, the slippage between irony and genuine belief started almost immediately. Some of the users mentioned tricking people into believing in their new hoax image, but as Slender Man's popularity grew, reality got blurrier. Users thought they may have created a tulpa, an entity they’d brought to life by thinking about it hard enough.

“They would start to say things like, ‘I scared myself so badly I can’t sleep,” says Tolbert, who has written papers on the Slender Man phenomenon. “Or, ‘I think I see Slender Man outside my window.’ But with text-based communication and this quasi-belief, quasi-irony, there aren’t any hard and fast answers.”

Still, Slender Man was real for at least two people: Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, who at 12 years old lured a friend into the woods and then stabbed her 19 times, all to impress Slender Man. (Both have since been committed to mental institutions.)

Something Wiccan This Way Comes
Back to our two current-day phenomena—both of which are, in their own ways, surprisingly traditional. For example, this isn't the first time a group of women has turned to witchcraft as a form of protest. In the 1960s, a coven calling themselves W.I.T.C.H (Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell) set about hexing Wall Street and beauty pageants and generally hanging around being creepy.

Witchblr is the internet version of that, with similar goals. They use the space to swap advice about meditations and sigils and altars, and compliment each other in the giddy, deeply ironic way that's become Tumblr's calling card. But they're also—at least sort of—witches. They've got Tumblr names like "The Cutest Death Witch Around." And the spells they cast range from woo-woo and harmless to good-humored-but-still-kinda-threatening:

From the annals of pepethefrogfaith.wordpress.com

"By saturating the web with these images of Pepe, they were trying to somehow make reality reflect the net," says Gary Lachman, cultural historian and author of Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump. But do they actually believe that by flooding the internet with Rare Pepes that they influence the election? Obviously, not even the users on r/The_Donald agree.

Yet, even this bad-faith faith has precedent. "It wouldn’t be the first time that extreme right conservative groups have employed the supernatural," Tolbert says. "The Nazis did exactly that. Creating a narrative and associated belief system has always been used as propaganda." (And, say what you want about the alt-right, but its members are savvy propagandists.)

Ultimately, any religion—or propaganda, or mythology—is a form of worldbuilding, a way of creating the appearance of influence on the world around you. And neither Witchblr nor the alt-right can deal with the world right now: the rules don't make sense anymore, and nobody's following them anyway. The certainties that used to hold the world together are gone. So why not start hexing people, or spreading your magic talisman to mark your territory and lift your chosen candidate to office?

“The reality is a lot of people don’t want to deal with the diversity of the real world,” McNeill says. “There are people who are going to use the internet to shrink their worlds rather than grow them, and scholars did not see that coming.”

What happens now? Does Witchblr go all Slender Man on the alt-right? Doubtful. And after the tragedy at Charlottesville, the alt-right hasn't been nearly as visible at real-world events. Yet, by retiring to their own corners of the internet, both groups' worldviews will only get more entrenched, and potentially more extreme. Foundational myths are what society is built upon, but nobody knows what will happen when myth creation is so easy—and so easily transmissible. "There used to be a time where you had to be really lucky to meet another pagan or practitioner of the occult," McNeill says. "People know that they aren’t alone now, but I don't think we yet know the power or the price of that."

Buckle up, internet. It's going to get spooky around here.

Tja... Kek dus... Ook de Nederlandse Wiki heeft wel wat informatie, Leest U nog even mee...??
Kek (mv: Kekoe, syn: Koek of Kekoei) was in de Egyptische mythologie het concept van de duisternis van de "primordiale ruimte" of oeroceaan.

Als concept werd Kek beschouwd als mannelijk en vrouwelijk tegelijk (androgynie). Toch maakte hij samen met zijn vrouwelijke tegenhanger Keket (ook Kaoeket of Kekoeit) deel uit van de Ogdoade van Hermopolis, een groep van acht oergoden.[1]

Net als de vier mannelijke oergoden van de "ogdoah", werd ook Kek voorgesteld met een kikkerhoofd of als een kikker, terwijl Keket, net als de vier vrouwelijke, met slangenhoofd of als slang wordt afgebeeld.

Als vergoddelijkt symbool van de duisternis vertegenwoordigde Kek ook de duisternis van het weten, de onwetendheid en de chaos.
De Engelstalige is iets uitgebreider... Read on, read on... hehehe :D
Kek is the deification of the concept of primordial darkness (kkw sm3w) in the Ancient Egyptian Ogdoad cosmogony of Hermopolis.

The Ogdoad consisted of four pairs of deities, four male gods paired with their female counterparts. Kek's female counterpart was Kauket. Kek and Kauket in some aspects also represent night and day, and were called "raiser up of the light" and the "raiser up of the night", respectively.

The name is written as kk or kkwy with a variant of the sky hieroglyph in ligature with the staff (N2) associated with the word for "darkness" kkw.

Afbeelding

In the oldest representations, Kekui is given the head of a serpent, and Kekuit the head of either a frog or a cat. In one scene, they are identified with Ka and Kait; in this scene, Ka-Kekui has the head of a frog surmounted by a beetle and Kait-Kekuit has the head of a serpent surmounted by a disk.

In the Greco-Roman period, Kek's male form was depicted as a frog-headed man, and the female form as a serpent-headed woman, as were all four dualistic concepts in the Ogdoad.

In relation to the 2016 United States presidential election, individuals associated with online message boards, such as 4chan, noted a similarity between Kek and the character Pepe the Frog. This resulted in a resurgence of interest in the ancient deity
Tja daar is Pepe weer...









Tja weer iets meer duiding dus... Enfin, al met al leek mij deze materie (hoe grappig ook, of juist niet lol) gewoonweg goed te passen op QFF. Daarom vanaf heden dus een eigen stek voor alles gerelateerd aan de cult van Kek de god van de CHAOS... Hehehe

Hieronder in de comments gaat het wat mij betreft lekker verder...

THE REAL STORY BEHIND HILLARY CLINTON’S “CARTOON NAZI FROG” WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
I’ll cut right to the chase:

Pepe the Frog isn’t a white nationalist symbol.

Pepe the Frog isn’t a harmless meme propagated by teenagers on the internet.

Pepe the Frog is, in fact, the modern-day avatar of an ancient Egyptian deity accidentally resurrected by online imageboard culture.

Does that sound like the most b@tsh#t crazy thing you’ve ever heard?

Strap in, friendo. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

(UPDATE 11/9/16: Well memed, America, well memed. A post-election follow-up to this article has been added here.)

When Memes Collide: The Origins of Pepe the Frog
The precise origins of Pepe the Frog are, like all imageboards memes, obscure and unimportant.

All you really need to know is that sometime around 2010, a sad-looking cartoon frog began to trend among posters on 4chan.org and similar “underground” imageboards.

Shortly after, the age-old piece of online vernacular used to express laughter—”LOL”—fell out of favor on these sites.

In its place a new slang term of synonymous meaning rose to common use: “KEK.”

The origins of this trend are much more important. It comes from an odd technicality involving the Korean language and the popular video game World of Warcraft.

Keep that in mind for later.

And so, just like that, two seemingly unrelated elements that would later give life to a deity were arranged in piecemeal fashion. But they remained dormant for several years, up until…

Donald Trump and the 2016 Election
By this time, Pepe the Frog had become the unofficial mascot for 4chan’s political discussion board (a highly despised corner of the Internet fittingly entitled “Politically Incorrect”).

/Pol/ is a place where the unspoken outsiders of Millennial culture gather en masse. Here you’ll find the lonely and depressed, the socially inept, the generational dropouts, and all shades of disenfranchised youth—every one of them united with an unshakable underdog mentality that pervades the forum’s every kilobyte.

To call this place a “white nationalist” or “alt-right” message board is categorically incorrect. /Pol/, above all else, is place where our society’s status quo is mercilessly challenged. It’s a melting pot for well-meaning free thinkers and misguided mad men alike.

It is a place of chaos.

So when Donald J. Trump strolled onto the political scene in 2015, it was a match made in heaven. He immediately became /pol/’s candidate of choice.

And it wasn’t long before Trump was mated with /pol/’s beloved mascot, in typical imageboard fashion:

donald-trump-pepe-the-frog-2016

And then, something very strange began to happen…

The Digits Declare a Deity
One last thing you need to understand about imageboard culture: dubs.

Every post on 4chan and similar venues comes with an 8-digit numerical stamp. This number represents that post’s entry position in the entire posting lineage of the imageboard.

With the amount of traffic these sites get, the last couple digits of this number are essentially a random roll. When a poster gets repeated digits, its called “dubs”, “trips”, “quads”, and so on.

Since a poster can’t know their post number until after they’ve submitted the post, its common for people to “bet” the contents of their message on the occurrence of repeating digits, like so:

465

When that endeavor proves a successful, a “GET” has been made and the stroke of luck is celebrated.

Out of this practice, a strange phenomenon began to take place on /pol/: discussion threads associated with Trump displayed noticeably frequent GETs.

trump-dubs

It wasn’t long before all of these seemingly random elements discussed so far became irreparably tied together within imageboard culture:

Pepe the Frog (now /pol/’s unofficial mascot)
Donald Trump (/pol/’s overwhelming candidate of choice)
Repeating digit post numbers (“GETS”)
“KEK” (used as an expression of delight, particular in response to Trump’s “trolling” of the establishment, as well as in reaction to unlikely GETs in general)
…and a god was born.

get

Here’s Where It Starts To Get Weird: The Queer Coincidence of Kek
Soon, it became all the rage on /pol/ to hail Trump as nothing less than god’s chosen candidate.

But which god’s chosen candidate exactly?

The answer is obvious: Kek.

Remember how we learned that “kek” the meme came about from an obscure Korean language onomatopoeia, completely independently from Pepe the Frog?

Well, it turns out Kek is also—and always has been—an ancient Egyptian deity…

A frog-headed one.

frog-god

Quite the coincidence, wouldn’t you say? “A little,” perhaps you reply.

“A little” indeed, but that’s just the very tip of the synchronicity iceberg. That’s just where this unfathomable string of “coincidences” begins. And where it ends? We just don’t know. Day by day this all getting stranger…

The second major (“little”) coincidence can be found when one looks into what Kek stood for among the ancient Egyptian pantheon:

Kuk (also spelled as Kek or Keku) is the deification of the primordial concept of darkness in ancient Egyptian religion…

…Like all four dualistic concepts in the Ogdoad, Kuk’s male form was depicted as a frog, or as a frog-headed man, and the female form as a snake, or a snake-headed woman. As a symbol of darkness, Kuk also represented obscurity and the unknown, and thus chaos. Also, Kuk was seen as that which occurred before light, thus was known as the bringer-in of light.

And who else, at this point, had been declared a “bringer of light” into the world by enthusiastic supporters (mainstream and imageboard alike)?

donald-trump-pepe-the-frog-2016

It gets even weirder.

The pot really started to boil when this bizarre misprint statuette was dug up from a mysterious vendor called “Ancient Treasures” on Amazon. For years the product had been coincidentally mislabeled a “KEK” statue, despite actually bearing the hieroglyphics for the frog goddess HEQET.

And ya know, the thing about this ONE unique arrangement of hieroglyphics…they bear an undeniable resemblance to a certain special something:

heqet

Do you see it?

A person sitting down. In front of a computer.

Like say, to post on an imageboard?

And what’s that on the other side of the computer?

esoteric-kekism2

With this “holy talisman’s” discovery, The Cult of Kek suddenly took on a concrete form. This new digital “faith” is summed up neatly in this image passed around on all the major imageboards of the day:

004-snos-kek-is-the-deification-of-the-primordial-concept-2562771

It Gets Weirder: Pepe/Keke “Emerges” in Plain Sight on September 11th, 2016

Soon, /pol/’s users were—quite ironically, at first—attributing all strokes of luck for the Trump campaign (and likewise, all strokes of misfortune for the Hillary campaign) to their benevolent frog-headed deity that spoke to them in dubs.

But all of that came to a head on September 11th, 2016, when three major, mind-blowing events transpired within 48 hours of each other. Three events that would change the face of Kek worship forever:

Hillary Clinton fainted or nearly fainted in New York. The overwhelming sentiment of /Pol/ —still reeling from the event—is captured two days later in this post:
4chan-meme-too-powerful.png

(Note this person’s post number)

Hillary Clinton literally declares Pepe the Frog an enemy of the state with paper-thin reasoning:
Here’s the short version: Pepe is a cartoon frog who began his internet life as an innocent meme enjoyed by teenagers and pop stars alike.

But in recent months, Pepe’s been almost entirely co-opted by the white supremacists who call themselves the “alt-right.” They’ve decided to take back Pepe by adding swastikas and other symbols of anti-semitism and white supremacy.

What can I or anyone else hope to add here? How bizarre does reality get? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

Oh, I see how deep…

(REALLY F#CKI’N WEIRD)Kek/Pepe’s musical anthem is discovered on YouTube:
Now get a load of this one.

While all of this was happening, one or a few anonymous 4chan contributors discovered an old track from the 80’s on YouTube. A track stamped all over with a very familiar face:

1473736180387

That’s right folks. A B-side vinyl by performer “P. E. P. E.”, sporting a frog with a magic wand.

A frog.

And what’s P. E. P. E. stand for?

Point
Emerging
Probably
Entering
“Probably.” What are sweet repeating digit GETs all about? Probability.

What is this “gist” of Kekism on /pol/? He speaks to them through dubs. Their ancient egyptian god of obscurity and chaos “emerges/enters” at “points” of “probability.”

Feel like that’s a stretch? Check out what the full-length vocal version’s album artwork is adorned with:

pepetrump

Don’t see the significance? Let 4chan help you:

trump-tower-clock-pepe-connection.png

(Again, note the post’s number)

And—hey—who’s that fair-haired man pointed towards Trump Tower’s clock in the artwork?

Gee, I wonder who.

Okay, What The Hell Is Going On?
Most likely? Chaos Magick.

You see, one of the core tenets of Chaos Magick practice (the only mainstay, really) is the creation of magic sigils (also called “glyphs”) to “codify and project one’s Will into the Universe.”

Basically, you make an image that represents your “will” (desire fueled by powerful emotions or altered states) and the universe will take care of the rest.

When a lot of people pool their united willpower towards a single sigil, its called a Hypersigil, and its exponentially more potent.

Pepe/Kek is 4chan’s hypersigil.

Millions of the “little people” that browse 4chan have embedded the image of Pepe with their hatred for Hillary’s alleged corruption, and their hope for Trump’s victory over her in November. Whether they did this consciously or not, its exactly what has happened.

And so far, their hypersigil seems to be working.

Hold Up: You’re Seriously Telling Me Magic Is Real?
Absolutely I am. But you must understand, “magic” probably isn’t what you think it is. It’s not about wand-waving or pentagrams or sacrificing babies.

Magick is actually much less involved than that. As a matter of fact, you’re casting magick right now. You pretty much always are, whether you like it or not.

That’s because the REAL magic comes from plain and simple human attention. How you look at reality shapes it in ways that we’re only now beginning to fully understand. Ironically, the science of quantum physics is rapidly bringing the reality of magick to light (shadilay).

In my book You’re Imagining Things, I’ll tell you how it works–and WHY it works–in plain-spoken English. I’ll also explain how you can use your attention to alter your own little pocket of reality in extraordinary ways. Click here to check out You’re Imagining Things on Amazon.

069280966x-main



So What Happens Next?
Most likely? Kek will continue to grow in power and continue to oppose Hillary Clinton and the corrupt political establishment. Will the Lord of Light win out over the powers that be? We shall find out very soon. (UPDATE 11/9/16: We found out what happened, didn’t we?)

This is awesome.
Yes.

What can I do to help?
Meme.

(And spread this around on social media.)

Pepe The Frog

Pepe the Frog was een fictieve antropomorfe kikker die afkomstig is van de webstrip Boy's Club, gecreëerd door de Amerikaanse illustrator Matt Furie. Pepe is sindsdien vooral bekend als een populaire en veelzijdige internetmeme. Toen Pepe geassocieerd raakte met extreemrechts, maakte Furie een einde aan het figuurtje.

Pepe maakte in 2005 zijn debuut in het stripverhaal Boy's Club #1, gepubliceerd door Matt Furie op MySpace. Furie omschreef het karakter als "gewoon een maffe hippiekikker. Hij houdt van frisdrank drinken, televisiekijken, telefoneren. Hij is gewoon een alledaags symbool voor die periode nadat je bent afgestudeerd. In mijn ogen is hij een vrij onschuldige kerel."[1]

Vanaf 2008 werd een afbeelding van een vrolijke Pepe met de tekst "feels good man" populair op het internetforum 4chan.[2] Vervolgens kwam een afbeelding van een verdrietige Pepe met de tekst "feels bad man" bekend te staan als Sad Frog.[3] In de loop der jaren werd de meme steeds veelzijdiger en populairder; zo werden afbeeldingen van Pepe getweet door popsterren Katy Perry en Nicki Minaj.[4] Op 4chan ontstond er een virtuele markt waarbij gebruikers "zeldzame Pepes" creëerden en verhandelden.[2] In 2015 was Pepe de meest gedeelde meme op het microblogplatform Tumblr.[4]

Controverse
Gedurende 2016 vond er een opleving plaats van extreemrechtse incarnaties van Pepe, waarin hij onder meer werd afgebeeld als nazi of Ku Klux Klan-lid. Deze memes werden geassocieerd met de alt-rightbeweging en extreemrechtse aanhangers van de Amerikaanse presidentskandidaat Donald Trump. Afbeeldingen van Pepe werden getweet door Trump en zijn zoon Donald Trump jr.[2] Medio september plaatste het campagneteam van Hillary Clinton een bericht op haar officiële website waarin Pepe werd omschreven als "een symbool geassocieerd met blanke suprematie".[5] In een daaropvolgend interview noemde Furie de memestatus van Pepe nog inspirerend en gaf hij aan niet gedeerd te zijn door aanstootgevende incarnaties van Pepe.[3]

Op 28 september 2016 werd Pepe door de joodse burgerrechtenbeweging Anti-Defamation League (ADL) tot haatsymbool verklaard. De ADL benadrukte dat niet alle memes van Pepe racistisch zijn en onschuldige afbeeldingen van Pepe niet worden beschouwd als haatsymbool.[6] In samenwerking met de ADL lanceerde Matt Furie de internetcampagne #SavePepe om Pepes reputatie als een positieve meme te herstellen.[7] In navolging van deze controverse werden er op 4chan meerdere satirische campagnes gestart om bestaande iconen door de media te laten bestempelen als haatsymbolen, zoals het pico bello-symbool.[8]

In mei 2017 besloot Furie uiteindelijk om Pepe dood te verklaren, door een laatste stripje te publiceren waarin Pepes begrafenis werd afgebeeld.[9]

Kek
In 2016 werden er op 4chan verbanden gelegd tussen Pepe en de oud-Egyptische god van de chaos, Kek, die eveneens werd uitgebeeld als een kikker en gelijknamig is aan de expressie kek, een op 4chan veelgebruikt synoniem voor lol. Hieruit ontstond een informele religie waarin Kek wordt aanbeden als de god van meme-magie, een bovennatuurlijke kracht waarmee internetmemes een profetische invloed hebben op de buitenwereld.[10] Zo werd de italodiscosingle Shadilay van de Italiaanse band P.E.P.E. uit 1986 – waarvan op de hoes een groene kikker met een toverstaf staat afgebeeld – dertig jaar later een grote hit op 4chan.
