Kekistan, officially the Republic of Kekistan is a country created by users on 4chan’s /pol/ board as the tongue-in-cheek ethnic origin of “shitposters” known as “Kekistanis” who worship the ancient Egyptian diety Kek. In late January 2017, Kekistan began widely circulating on Twitter following its promotion by YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.

Kekistan exisits as a parody of identity politics, and is all centered around a basica idea: meme freedom

Etymology

History

On 4chan, the name “Kekistan” has been suggested for various imaginary geographic locations many times since as early as December 2015, when a flag with the filename “kekistan.jpg” was submitted to the /int/ (international) board. On December 14th, 2016, a thread regarding buying an island in the Caribbean was submitted to /pol/, to which several users suggested the land be named “Kekistan”.

On January 30th, 2017, YouTuber Sargon_of_Akkad tweeted that “shitposters meet the British govs criteria of an ethnicity,” claiming he would register the group on the British census (shown below, left). After asking followers what the ethnicity should be named, he settled on “Kekistani,” describing the fictional group as a “disparate and dispossessed people” (shown below, right).

That day, the Republic of Kekistan Twitter feed was launched, declaring itself “the official Twitter account of the Kekistani Republic.” Within 48 hours, the feed gained over 5,000 followers. Meanwhile, the site Kekistan.com was launched, including a “Kek manifesto”. Meanwhile, other Twitter users began tweeting the hashtag #FreeKekistan along with jokes denouncing normies and professing their pride in shitposting.

The following day, YouTuber The New Memedia uploaded the song “Shadilay” under the titled “The National Anthem of Kekistan”. The video was subsequently removed. Meanwhile, the /r/kekistan subreddit was launched, with the description “There is only one God (Kek) and Pepe is his prophet.” On February 1st, a page for “Kekistan” was created on Encyclopedia Dramatica.

On September 12th, 2017, the official Bungie Twitter feed announced they would be removing a piece of gauntlet armor in the game Destiny 2 for sharing “elements with a hate symbol.”,

That day, Redditor TheLittleMoa submitted a post about the tweet to /r/DestinyTheGame, where Redditor xxbiohazrdxx speculated that the Road Complex AA1 legendary gauntlets were removed for containing imagery resembling the Kekistani flag.

In the comments section of the post, many Redditors mocked Bungie for thinking the flag was a symbol of hate. That day, Polygon and Kotaku published articles calling the Kekistan flag an “alt-right” and “white nationalist” symbol.

Military History

In kekistan's history, Normies and Liberals had invaded kekistan and were at the point of taking kekstantinople, Only to be save by Donald Trump And Nigel Farrage.

In real life they have been in many battles with Antifa in towns like Berkeley California and Boston.

In each attempt they succeeded to hold back the Liberals against over wealming odds even to having their main general arrested during the Third battle of Berkeley At the Free speech rally. Kekistan liberated the town shortly afterwards.

Government

Politics

Kekistan's entire history has been based on Right wing or libertarian Politics. Many people across the US were critizied by the left and feminists. Hundreds of people on the internet grew tired of leftist censorship and leftist insanity. A cartoon frog named pepe (created by Matt Furie) had became a center of Right wing or in some cases nazi Memes.

this led to Pepe becoming the symbol of Political Incorrectness. Even today, he is still the symbol for all of kekistan.

During the Elections, Hillary Clinton made a remark about how the alt Right was rascist. A kekistani conservitave shouted, "Pepe!" this only further brought attention to Kekistan. Further more bringing diversity of land loving Americans to form the online coalition.

First records of the praising to Kek in the internet.

Kek

The Cult of Kek, also known as the Church of Kek, is a satirical religion based around the worship of the ancient Egyptian deity Kek (also spelled Kuk or Keku), an androgynous God of darkness and chaos who is often depicted as a frog or frog-headed man in male form or a snake-headed woman in female form. The deity is associated with the popular 4chan slang term “Kek”, and is often embraced by supporters of 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Practitioners are known to frequently write “praise Kek”, and jokingly refer to the church as a “religion of peace.” Adittionally, on 4chan, the character Pepe the Frog is considered a modern avatar of the diety, who uses ancient Egyptian meme magic to influence the world, often by fulfilling the wishes of posts that end in repeating numbers.

Origin

On November 27th, 2015, a 4chan user submitted a post about the Egyptian deity to the /his/ (History) board on 4chan, featuring a depiction of the god as a frog-headed man.

Spread

On March 11th, 2016, Redditor river_of_karma submitted an image macro associating Pepe the Frog, Donald Trump and “memetic magic” with the ancient Egyptian deity to /r/pepethefrog. [2]

On June 4th, a “Kek worship general” thread was created on the /trash/ (off-topic) board on 4chan.[8] On June 25th, an anonymous 4chan user submitted a post to the /r9k/ (Robot 9000) board asking if viewers had “accepted lord Kek, ancient Egyptian god of darkness, into their lives?” [3]

In /pol/’s kek mythos, posts ending in sevens hold more weight than others, as seven is considered a lucky and/or holy number in many cultures, which increases in value for dubs and trips. Similarly, three sixes (666, the Number of the Beast) are considered to represent Satan and evilness. This received one of its highest points on June 19th, 2016, when a post reading “Trump will win” managed to get the 77777777 GET. [4]

On August 5th, YouTuber Ganzorf uploaded a video titled “Who is Kek? – The Dark God Rising,” which discussed the Cult of Kek.[11] On September 12th, an anonymous 4chan user submitted a thread associating the Church of Kek with black magic. [5]

On September 14th, Redditor alexmikli submitted a post titled “TIL of the Gyptian god Kek, a god of chaos and nighttime who was represented by a frog” to the /r/TIL subreddit, where it gathered upwards of 1,200 votes (93% upvoted) and 100 comments within 48 hours. The following day, a parody of the Clinton campaign blog post referring to Pepe the Frog as a “symbol associated with white nationalism” was created, which discussed the Kek deity and its relationship with “meme magic”. [6]

On September 15th, The Cult of KEK Facebook page was launched. [7]
