Meme Warfare

Meme Warfare grew throughout the 2016 election campaign, with Redditors and 4chan users being widely credited for helping Donald Trump win the presidential election by spreading political memes across the internet. While we are typically used to propaganda being spread by news outlets or political candidates themselves, what I find the most interesting about Meme Warfare is that any layperson can contribute.

For my remediation this week, I created a political meme of Donald Trump in the ‘Obama Hope Poster’ style. This remediation acts as an ode to the recent history of Meme Warfare, traditional propaganda posters, and the former President of the United States, Barack Obama. Yes, the watermark and “Obama Poster Maker’ logo are ironic and are supposed to be there.
