The internet unites to troll Isis fighters as rubber ducks
Trolling is the ancient art of Internet and now controversial message board 4chan users have come together to troll ISIS by photoshopping images of Isis jihadis into yellow rubber ducks.
Earlier, the online hacktivist group, Anonymous has employed a similar trick of trolling ISIS and their affiliates by ‘rick-rolling’ their propaganda videos and weblinks. For uninitiated rick-rolling is when someone thinks they are about to watch or read something online and then the video of Rick Astley’s 1987 hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ starts playing.
And last week, GhostSec, a group affiliated with Anonymous took down an Isis page and replaced it with a Viagra advert.
Coming back to the current troll, user of a private 4Chan board posted a message, “how about castrating the image of IS by replacing the faces on ALL the propaganda photos with bath ducks” – and 4Chan users rose to the occasion gloriously.
The submissions have been collected on Imgur as an album called ‘create the duck state‘, the fruits of which can be seen below.
Even the message on the now infamous flag in the image has been replaced to read as ‘duck duck duck duck duck duck duck duck duck duck duck.’
Ok, Trolling is our birthright!!!
