Skip to comments.No, A White House Intern Didn't Throw Up A White Power Sign In Photo Op With Trump
Posted on 01/01/2018 1:59:14 PM PST by Kaslin
Oh, we’re back to this again. For a White House intern was captured throwing up what many on the Left say is a white power hand gesture in a recent photograph with the president. The picture included President Donald Trump and the fall intern class all had them giving a thumbs up for the photograph, except Jack Breuer, who was giving the ‘OK’ sign, which has been used by virtually everyone. Progressives claim the three fingers form a “W,” while the index finger curling to meet the thumb to form an “O” shape somehow forms a “P.” WP= White power in the land of social media leftism. Has it been used by the alt-right crew to troll the liberal media? Yes. Does it make it an actual white power gesture? No. Even the Anti-Defamation League said this was symbol meant nothing (via Newsweek):
Meet Jack Breuer.
He was a White House Intern.
He recently posed with the President of the United States.
Notice the hand gesture he's making...
That's the hand gesture for "White Power"

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) claimed the gesture is not a hate symbol but a hoax started by the anonymous discussion board 4chan. In February, the group said 4chan users went on a mission to confuse social media by arguing that the OK symbol now stood as a sign of white supremacy.
"If someone presents you with a symbol and says it is the big new white supremacist symbol, you should be appropriately skeptical," Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow at the ADL's Center on Extremism, said in a May post.
Many Americans began using the symbol to impersonate Trump, who often made the gesture during his campaign speeches.
In some of our intern pictures, I emulated the OK sign the President sometimes makes. That was foolish. I should have listened more closely to the Commander-in-Chief and given the thumbs up. (1/2)— Jack Breuer (@jjbreue) December 29, 2017
I’m proud of my Jewish heritage and strongly reject the hateful views associated with racist white power organizations. I would never make common cause with them. (2/2)— Jack Breuer (@jjbreue) December 29, 2017
Now, with that being said, Breuer expressed regret for deviating from the rest of the group in the photo and causing undue drama. He said he was merely emulating the president, as he’s given the ‘OK’ gesture many times on the stump. It’s just something everyone does, but in the era of Trump Derangement Syndrome from the Left—the freak-outs over nothing are pervasive. Breuer has no ties to far right wing groups. He's also Jewish, so he's not a Nazi either. There’s nothing to see here; move along.
NEW: White House intern Jack Breuer accused of flashing white nationalist hand gesture by @DailyMail tells me he was simply emulating @POTUS well known OK sign, has Jewish heritage, and has no association with far right groups https://t.co/FGpQfED18K pic.twitter.com/gqNOdOpGYf— Saagar Enjeti (@esaagar) December 29, 2017
But athletes and others using “black power” gestures is ok.
And you are racist for noticing. See how this works?
I guess John Cena is also a Nazi because he makes the same hand gesture every single time he wrestles

“Confuse social media”. AKA, shooting fish in a barrel.
4chan gets these idiots every time.
If they think the ‘ok’ sign is a sign for White Privilege, wait until they figure out what the double-thumbs-up means.
The insanity brought on by the mental disease known as liberalim causes one to dig deep into heavy piles of fecal matter looking for a slightest sign of pure gold.
I don’t even see a guy making a hand gesture - I see a couple of girls. What am I missing?
I’m about as white man as they come with blue eyes, blonde hair and great American smile.
These bass tuhds have been ignoring me and ripping me off my entire life.
Not once have I ever been invited to any white power clubs.
Hell, I didn’t even know they had gang signs.
I’d join but, any club that have me....well...
And just think... not ONE of those interns in that photo has to worry about being molested by First Horndog Bill Clinton!!!!!
You know what my “white power” sign is?
A giant Middle Finger to the leftardniki... and big grin as well.
Psst... Guess what?
Trump is STILL President!!!!!!!
Does his family own a tiki torch?
They didn’t post the picture with everybody making the thumbs up sign while the one guy makes the OK sign.
...and then he cucked on it.
4chan gets these idiots every time.
4chan is also the group that pranked the media into believing a green frog cartoon character named “Pepe” was a secret Nazi dog whistle. Once the Clinton campaign latched onto that absurdity, the MSM was then only too willing to nod along in agreement.
“giving the OK sign, which has been used by virtually everyone.”
That’s been thr OK hand sign forever. Unless you’re Buckwheat.
White Power is an education, a clean rap sheet, a paycheck, a well-earned high credit score. In other words, it is being an asset to society.
