seems like I'm not the only one that gets it. Also lol at that dude Aldo feeling the need to call me lame. Didn't you get banned by Shep Fairey for blatantly flipping prints? Don't bitch about me commenting on an ongoing topic, bitch at the dude who brought it up.

oh and yes, this is the Mondo thread. Probably the most excitement it's had in a while..

It's on a poster for a film that is literally about the Antichrist. Pretty sure that the use of the 'ok' symbol is apt and feeding into the rhetoric that it's a hate symbol and a sign of white nationalism.

It definitely depends what part if the world you are in. In UK for instance there is no way that symbol would be used to say anything other than OK.
Australia here and I know it as a hate symbol.
lmao y'all are delusional

I'm sure you thought joker was a far right incel movie too when the media told you it was. Stop falling for everything. "Im making a poster about the antichrist so i'm gonna put in a white nationalist sign so people know!!! reeeeeeee!"

The context is that it's not supposed to be, nor usually is, a hate symbol, but it's been recently co-opted as such and is getting recognized as such. So nobody's fully wrong here, it's just the awkward insanity of seeing something innocuous turn into something else in the span of like, 2 years. It sucks but so does everything else these days.

yeah i'm pretty sure it was added just on the basis that some people have co-opted (as you said) use of it for their own purposes. didn't that shooter from new zealand flash the ok symbol in court? it's something used by fudge people in fudge internet places

Revelation 13:18
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

The A-OK hand sign = 666 = Satan

And so it goes...

(not saying one is more right than the other, but this seems more the reason for the usage of the hand-signage.)
Carry on...

Throwing up the devil horns would've either been too on-the-nose or too drymounting metal for an Omen poster.

All right, I gotta ask, what is it that people are claiming is the ok sign, the sixes in the O or the kid's actual hand?

The OK symbol has to be the ultimate 4chan troll. We are living in the darkest timeline.
