1. At scout camp that was sign language calling someone an asshole.

Apparently usage is still correct.

4. You ever notice

Dipshit Donnie does a triple a-hole sign at his campaign rallies. Both hands and the face in the middle.

2. Hey, somebody is throwing gang signs and Sessions is no place to be seen.

Jeff Sessions where are you man? I thought you were supposed to be cracking down on gangs. How are you gonna let gang members walk into your place of business and throw signs all willy nilly like that.

3. Trump does that a LOT during his speeches.

I didn't know what it meant. Until now.

7. Could be

But normally you don't flatten out your fingers and spread them in a "w". And think about who is doing it.

When I see some of the hand gestures I go with these. A-hole all fingers closed. Okay normally last 3 fingers together and curved. As a punctuation last 3 fingers straight and together. There maybe a area what does that. Just haven't seen it myself.

8. It probably depends on who and where. I've not seen OK with fingers together. 👌

19. Thank you

first time I saw the sign (today) I kept thinking of the okay sign. This graphic shows the subtle difference. Pinching rather than tucking the forefinger behind the thumb to make an O.

Man, I feel old.

12. I asked all 3 houses members tio give me the ok sign and they did it with

fingers spread out and straight. Maybe it's a regional thing?

Sounds like they are appropriating the OK sign to mean something else entirely.

10. Not when you look at the MANY pics of white supremacists making this sign. It's very much part

of their "code." See also smug Pepe (the frog associated with white nationalism) making the same sign. They are not all saying "okay" to each other.

16. Like everything, it started at 4chan

 

They are trying to make it seem like a white power hand signal, so people claiming it to be a white power hand signal seem like idiots. They are right.

11. If they decide among themselves what it means, then that's what it means to them. It used to mean OK

Not anymore, at least to white supremacists.

Don't know why this guy is trying to deny it.

13. It's totally a coincidence. It's just the OK sign, right?

I mean, it's not like anyone else has done it at the WH Press Podium.

?1487774389

Er...

I mean, it's not like anyone who uses the #Pepe hashtag (and the emoji) is a New American Nazi. I mean sure, Richard Spencer uses it. Even had a Pepe pin the day he got punched in that now-famous video.

But this is all a coincidence that now two separate sets of people are using the exact same symbol at the WH Press Podium. It's not like Milo Yanananagofuckhimself uses it.



Welp...

(Spoiler alert: There's fucking Nazis in the White House. And they keep adding more every month.)

14. Cernovich is pretty bad as it is

Not someone who should be in the WH.

He's an MRA who plays footsie with the far right.

Read it and puke.

17. If you were to look up the word "tool" in the dictionary....

You'd probably see a picture of Mike Cernovich. Maybe Ann Coulter as well.

Stop with this nonsense.

21. If it was a white power sign, it would be on the ADL website.

And this one is not. Even the claim that Staffer Stephan Miller flashed one is bogus - it was probably just an adjustment to his suit. What particularly funny about that claim is he is Jewish and the white power movement would reject him entirely. He's just an average authoritarian right wing douche.
