Red Guy Blue Guy memes basically consist of sign people, usually colored in red or blue, posed in such a way that they symbolize a sort of ideology, also known as an “-ism” (i.e. socialism, capitalism, libertarianism, etc.), but not necessarily. The blue character often represents the common man while the red character often represents an important figure like a leader of some sort.
As a picture, the first instance of a Blue Guy VS Red Guy was created by DeviantART user miniamericanflags on February 11th 2007 as way to share criticisms over the Socialism system as a way of life.
The earliest appearance of the meme on the internet was on the popular imageboard site, 4chan, on September 13, 2009. Although, it might have appeared earlier seeing as the original thread was 404’d.
This meme has seen some light on a site called Breakbeat Science Forum on the same day that the 4chan thread exploded, but later by an hour than its appearance on 4chan.
