Exposed: The alt-right cheat sheet to using racist terms on social media

 Exposed: The alt-right cheat sheet to using racist terms on social media

The alt-right has found a way to game social media censors with a racist cheat sheet that allows them be as un-PC as they like, and troll tech companies at the same time.

The communities have a racist cheat sheet which lists codenames to use when talking about minorities.

In dodging automated sensors that search for certain words, the alt-right are free to be as un-PC as they like.

Common words have been chosen so as to appear like “normal” conversations and include Skype, Skittles and Google.

The racist slang cheat sheet was discovered by Alex Goldman who noticed a number of alt-right social media accounts using strange references to brands like Skype. He discovered the cheat sheet on Onsizzle after searching for the terms online.

According to the Independent, the brains behind the new language even hope to damage the brands they use by eventually having them associated with the racist slang.

Some of the new slang is as follows.

Skittle: an Arab or Muslim

Skype: Jew

This was dreamed up after Donald Trump Jr’s controversial tweet about refugees and Skittles.

Butterfly: Gay man

 Fishbucket: Lesbian

Google: black person

Yahoo: Mexican

Car Salesman: Liberal/Democrat

Reagans: Conservative

A Leppo: Libertarian

A reference to Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson’s “Aleppo moment” when he appeared to not know what Aleppo was.

Pepe: Alt-right

Pepe comes from Pepe the Frog, the unsuspecting mascot of the “alt-right,” often seen on their social media profile pictures.

The origins of using Google stems from a 4Chan chat forum which sought to intentionally associate Google with racism after the company brought out Jigsaw which promised to use AI technology to prevent online abuse. They used Google as if they were using a derogatory term against black people, in the hope that the search engine giant would be forced to censor itself.
