All my life I believed the following jesture meant “OK” or “AOK”. We used it in the military before “thumbs up” became popular to signal an aircraft system was working within specifications. We’ve seen it used in movies, particularly old war movies to signal something is a go.
Little did we know that this was the White Power Hand Gesture. It seems in a group White House photo with interns giving the thumbs up, a Jewish intern gave the AOK sign instead and now the left is saying that the Alt Right is inhabiting the White House.
A former White House intern is coming under fire after flashing a known ‘white power’ sign during a photo-op with President Donald Trump.
Jack Breuer, who graduated from Emory University in Atlanta this year, is clearly bucking orders — personally given by the president — to give a thumbs-up in the picture that was taken in the White House in November.While the other hundred or so interns smile and follow Trump’s command, Breuer, a dentist’s son who grew up in Chicago’s western suburbs, stands stony-faced giving the ‘OK’ sign that has been linked with far-right groups.
It is the same sign that white nationalist Richard Spencer gave on the steps of the Trump International Hotel on election night and that right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos posed with in front of the White House.
It was also seen at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August – the same day an alleged Nazi sympathizer accelerated his car into anti-protesters, killing one and injuring several others.
We’ve seen the Middle Finger used by every group in America. I wonder what group these idiots associate the Middle Finger with?
The gesture – which only makes sense if made with the right hand, although there are examples of people making it with their left hand – is said to depict the letter ‘W’ with the outstretched middle, ring and little fingers, and a ‘P’ with the circle made by the thumb and forefinger stretching down to the wrist. Together ‘WP’ stands for White Power.
These freaking jerks need to really get a life.
