Neo Nazis on the internet have attempted to co-opt Trash Dove as a symbol of the Alt-right. Many people are considering Trash Dove to be a low-key symbol of racism.[11] Several memes of Trash Dove have it intertwined with swastikas and Nazi imagery.[12] [13] 4chan has claimed it to be /ourbird/.[14] BuzzFeed and Daily Dot reported on attempts of the Alt-right to co-opt Trash Dove.[43] [42]

 

It should be noted that because so many Trash Dove memes are not bigoted in nature, it is important to examine the use of the meme only in context. The mere fact of posting a Trash Dove meme does not mean that someone is racist or a nazi. However, if the meme itself is racist or anti-Semitic in nature, or if it appears in a context containing bigoted or offensive language or symbols, then it may have been used for trolling or hateful purposes.[30]

    trash dove is the prophet of Horus to start Meme War II. It will become a symbol of hate interpreted by the liberal media as a symbol for white supremacy
