About

Counter-Signal Memes, also known as Smuggies, are MS Paint illustrations featuring caricatures of people with extreme political viewpoints, most commonly parodying liberal or left-wing ideologies. The images have widely circulated within right-wing online communities, including 4chan's /pol/ board and various subreddits.

Origin

On August 5th, 2015, the “Counter-signal Memes for Fashy Goys” Facebook[1] page was launched, which highlights various MS Paint comics mocking left-wing arguments. The same day, a comic featuring a stick figure mocking those who express their beliefs was submitted, gaining over 160 likes in the following 10 months.[12] However, some pages credit the creation of this comics to the now defunct Facebook page Pass Me The Comics Bro.[11]


I'm not irrelevant I'm profound Clearly they are both wrong because they wish to enforce their beliefs. My beliefs are superior because l wont enforce them marijuana Pass Me the Comics Bro (now defunct) Guess which one is the homosexual? Final Rating: 3 Insert d---- HERE That's right, they both are. Except the one on the right doesn't revolve his whole entire life style around it.

Precursor: I Am Silly

The comics bear a high resemblance to a series of comics titled as "I am silly", which became popular on some 4chan boards like /v/ or /b/ as mockery to argumentative comics, like the ones done by Quentin, in early 2011.[2] The earliest and most popular instance depicts an aggressive and irrational stick figure who overreacts while engaging in an argument (shown below, left).
