On the 1st of April 2017, Prince Luke did acknowledge the influence of Kek on the land that forms the Principality of Jonesia, recognising it as a national faith alongside his “cultural Christianity”.
Feeling moved by the plight of his fellow so-called “Kekistani refugees”, patriotic capitalist activists, including meme artists, who are persecuted by the mainstream Occidental political establishment, Prince Luke decreed that they be welcome to apply for citizenship of the Principality of Jonesia, which would be henceforth also referred to as Theocratic Republic of Kekistan.
What is the Way of Kek?
The name “Kekistan” comes from Ancient Egyptian Ogdoad cosmogony. In ancient times, what now forms the Principality of Jonesia was Egyptian land, though modern Egypt lays no claim. The faith featured a number of gods, including Kek who is the “raiser up of the light”, and known in modern times as “Pepe the Frog”. In the Greco-Roman period, Kek’s male form was depicted as a frog-headed man.
Hence, patriots claim Kek must be their deity. He was seen as that which occurred before light, thus was known as the bringer-in of light.
Some even say the Egyptians foretold the rise of meme magic:
The sound “kek” is an odd technicality involving the Korean language and the popular video game World of Warcraft – it means laughter, just as “lol” does, and has become part of the whole Pepe identity.
Around 2010, a sad-looking cartoon frog, Pepe, began to trend among posters on 4chan.org and similar “underground” imageboards. Pepe has become adored by right-wing patriots and seen as their mascot.
Despite lefties’ attempts to demonise him, Pepe is not a white supremacist symbol but a symbol of the political right. Even Donald Trump has tweeted a meme of Pepe, and the mascot triggered Hilary, resulting in a speech where she ranted about frogs.
