ALT-RIGHT NOW: TRUMP DOGWHISTLES HIS THANKS TO THE ALT-RIGHT AND PEPE THE FROG


After one of the longest candidate acceptance speeches in American political history and definitely one of the best, Donald J. Trump dogwhistled his thanks to the foot soldiers of the Alt-Right, who have been fighting and meming on his behalf since he announced his candidacy over a year ago. Right after the climax of his speech, while the auditorium was still ringing with echoes of "Make America Great Again," the song All Right Now by the English rock band Free kicked in. Any Alt-Righter worth his salt could read the thinly coded message..."Alt-Right now, baby, it's Alt-Right now." Even the name of the band Free, containing within it the phrase "Reeeee!" is a thinly veiled reference to the Alt-Right's favourite Trump meme avatar, Pepe the Frog. The Donald knows what we do and he is deeply GREATful!
