About

Dam Edits refer to photoshopped pictures of a diagram showing how a dam protects a town from a large reservoir of water. In the edits, the dam, town, and reservoir are all labeled differently. They became popular on /r/dankmemes in mid-June of 2017.

Origin

The original image is a French political cartoon in which the dam saves democracy from religion (shown below, left). This appeared on French blog Dorffer-patrick[6] on August 30th, 2016. on The image was later edited and posted to conservative blog The Political Cesspool on September 8th.[5] There, the labels imply Christianity is saving "you" from "radical Islam."
