i'm never not amazed at....whatever the fuck this is when I see it. It's happening here.

It's when a some everyday act/word/symbol/statement is used to point to something devious and dark, but then the person who used the thing has every opportunity to deny the darker statement and lean back on the primary definition/associations of the object.

Then because the object (word, statement, symbol) is so ubiquitous it becomes a battleground for discussion in the culture war debates.

then, during the whole time, the person who first originally used the thing is able to keep both feet on two different islands of meaning. and it's done by simultaneously denying a second meaning while also positioning the dark statement as just joking/humor.

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist" - the big trick in all of this, is that we're all trying to act as if these meanings and interactions are just one to one, IRL and completely ignoring the part of living in a world thats on the internet and that the meaning of things has splintered because the language of internet culture is appropriation - so things are appropriated to be given new meaning by groups.


I genuinely like the beat for this because I'm hearing it from the hip hop, electronic music perspective.

Unfortunately, it's a nazi dogwhistle. Don't believe it? Breakdown here:

But, then, the meaning of clown world can also mean anything not going right in the world like, "the US and it's government have fucked up their Covid response...what a clown world"
