Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know this guy. This photo took place during “America Votes” aftermath. Some sources say it was taken on Gov Mitt Romney’s “Homophobia Speech” rally at the statehouse yesterday. Yes, it’s an illusion, but I can’t help but see white pointy hats peeking out from the back row. Do those stupid three-K, white hooded fraternities still exist? I surely hope not! This gives a new meaning on “irony“. You can see another picture inside this post, it’s more detailed photo. For similar illusions check: Pope with horns, Chechen soldier, Bush/Gates illusion… in “Celebrities” section.

Notice The Pointy White Hats in the Back!

    ….nice. not. maybe a prank? i dont think theyd be let in to a press conference……….photoshop?

  2. me says:

    note….closer inspection…..rips in fabric of flag?

  3. Anonymous says:

    they look too tall and disproportioned to be kkk hats
    maybe the top of some flag that is mostly white?

  4. Anonymous says:

    It looks like just a slopy paint job

  5. Anonymous says:

    It looks like the flag is a backdrop curtain and those are slits to allow people through.

  6. payam says:

    gpxikcohme is right, it does like like rips in the flag but y would their be ripps, probably photoshopped, cool nontheless

  7. Big Shtank says:

    They aren’t rips, they’d catch way too much flack from “patriots” if the flag were ripped. Probably the Massachussets state flag since it’s mostly white.


  8. Zig says:

    Wait. What is the illusion here?

    It’s the kkk run for your life

  10. no likey name says:

    that isn’t the kkk, I have no clue what it is but fyi the kkk still exist but in few numbers

    As anonymous said up above, it looks like the flag is a backdrop curtain and those are slits to allow people through.

    There’s another one just to the right of the podeum… (behind the head of the lady in white.

    In the close up, you can really tell that fabric is folded back to make an entry way for people to walk. We’re just seeing the partly overcast sky in the gap.

    No Photoshop required and no ripped flag either.

    The speaker is Mit Romney, governor of Massachusetts. The pointing things are the Massachusetts state flag. He is a republican. Is that why this nasty rumor is being started?

    Ha, looks more like rips in flag, if it were real it be purty messed up man…

  14. Liberate says:

    This is stupid

  15. 7aipan says:

    PRETTY MUCH the ripples on the flag to the left are sagging down… and the ripples on the right side are going up.. thats wat i thought this was about…

  16. Anonymous says:

    it looks like a closed umbrella

  17. Thomas Mann says:

    Guyz, it’s just a stupid rip in the flag.

    Is the optical illusion the table in front of him?

    Triple K does still exist. They had a rally in one of our towns a few years ago, and under “freedom of speech”, they were legally permitted to do so. The cops were on the scene in case of rioting or other mob violence, but there was nothing they could do to stop it.

  19. Anonymous says:

    They are Massachussets State flags on poles.

  20. Anonymous says:

    the guy is still an A$$hat…

  21. Anonymous says:

    Notice the ripples in the flag…it is hanging from something to create a backdrop. I agree that they are slits in it, most likely to let people through or because the weight of the flag cannot be hanging there without something pulling away weight from it somewhere.

    Whatever it is, it’s still the perfect illusion behind one of this country’s foremost bigots.

    That’s what makes it so funny, anf fitting.

  23. Anonymous says:

    I saw a clip on telly that reminded me of this pic. they are white flags hanging limp on their poles

  24. Anonymous says:

    Notice that there apers to be no heads that we can see under those “hats”

  25. Lindsey says:

    At first I thought the illusion was that the front of his podium is lined up with one of the white strips in the flag, making him look translucent

  26. Anonymous says:

    no really bad work on paint anyone can do it.

    there’s no shading to make them look like real “KKK” hats

  27. OddlyMyself says:

    kkk hats droop down, not stand straight up..

  28. Anonymous says:

    They are flags. Good illusion though.

    The podium thing is weird too. Like someone said, it makes him look translucent.

  29. Anonymous says:

    You know, the KKK has been illegal for a while now… you don’t think there’s a chance, therefore, that the “hoods” would have been in police custody before the picture was even taken (bear in mind this is a political event; there are bound to be police in the vicinity)?

    He was a crappy governer anyways, those are dunce hats, which represents what he is as a governer anyways, i would ttly h8 to see him a president :P

  32. ...I know this one! says:

    They no hat!
    They are rips!
    (Sry bout the wierd words me wnat to talk like taht :( )

  33. Anonymous says:

    Maybe it’s a space in the flag for people to pass through.

  34. Aurora101 says:

    KKK!? I sure hope not!
    probably some kind of rip or a way for the audience to come in by.

  35. JR says:

    You missed one, there is one by his left elbow!

  36. Black Mamba says:

    BTW the kkk still exist, in fact in order to join, all you have to do is go online and enlist in their summer camp. Those wierdos are still surviving in huge numbers, it’s only that they don’t commit group murders and such. (KKK can go kill themselves, in my opinion)

  37. Anonymous says:

    This is a simple illusion. It’s two mini versions of the Washington Monument. The point just looks like a hat.

  38. Matt says:

    No, it’s not the KKK, no it’s not an illusion…

    It is a common practice (ok, maybe not too common), to put “U” shaped holes a flag to allow the wind to flow through. Otherwise the wind would just catch it and blow it up, down, and all over the place.

    Yes, some people hate seeing that and say it’s unpatriotic, but it’s no more dishonorable than burning a flag in a retirement ceremony when it gets very old… The common ground that they share is that some people do use those actions to disrespect the flag, but in these contexts they clearly serve a function.

  39. CJ says:

    i thought it was rips too but the wavy texture lines of the flag doesnt match it it it was ripped the both sides of the point match perfectly

    Definitely photoshopped. In the close up you can see some gray lines (the exact same color as the white stripes on the flag) where it didn’t get erased all the way. They aren’t shadowed enough to be anythin 3-D. What freaked me out more is the person’s face directly below the arrow in the close up.

  42. Eye-vern says:

    I agree that it might be rips in fabric of the flag. Look closely and you’ll see that it’s possible.

  43. Apiez says:

    ha ha… stupid

  44. Sarah says:

    Ummmm……………Well maybe they’re rips in the flag, but if it was lots of people would be offended (I know I’m not, I’m Canadian)

  45. Sarah says:

    Oh no, wait. Anonymous (5th person) is probably right. They’re probably slits to allow people through.

  46. Suki says:

    Photoshop? Prank? Idiot Americans actually letting those guys in there? Hmm…guess we’ll never really know…

  47. ria says:

    they are too evenly spaced out to be ripped

    if it was photo shopped, it would be right on someone’s head

    agree with #5

  48. Anonymous says:

    uh-oh… yes, to answer your question, KKK does still exist

  49. I dont think its an illuson.

  50. Lucky says:

    By the guy there is another

  51. goots says:

    yeah thats really messed up

  52. heehaw says:

    A tear in the flag???

  53. Its a probably cutted of..

  54. Helper says:

    it is probley a peice cut off considering wearing white hats ..ommm….lol in a thing with bush is DUMBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB!

  55. lolipop101 says:

    wow that i not an optical illusion! im so proud… NOT! seriously get better ones and at least make them ILLUSIONS my god

  56. yunnf says:

    aren’t those cuts meant to stop the wind (if strong) from tearing it even more?

  57. that is REALLY REALLY messed up… WTF

  58. de santo says:

    actually the kkk does still exist.

  59. David says:

    That’s look like parasol or flag… This is really confusing…

  60. cindy says:


  61. Az says:


    Ok it’s not tears in the flag. The flag is fine. What those are are poles in front of the flag doing two things. One acting as a baricade, and secondly having a smaller “flag” (not the US flag, but either republican or democratic or something like “Pride” “Solidarity” etc) hanging off it.

    If you’ve ever been to a political rally type thing they have them everywhere.

  62. Chuck Snow says:

    Those are the Mass. state flags. They are on poles(Pikes)and mounted upright. The Mass. state flag is mostly white.

  63. bitty says:

    its a bend in the flag and light reflecting on it -.- not cuts

  64. Bill says:

    The flag is cut so the wind would not blow it up but through it and the flag would stay flat!

  65. john says:

    um there is three of them one near the guy podium on the right

  66. andrew says:

    those r tears dumb ass

  67. leo says:

    Omfg the Ku Klux Klan

  68. (Anonymous) says:

    i think there are Four poles if you watch the formation of the other 3.. also you can see it’s a flag but it’s ”dead” ( no wind ”

  69. miasaki says:


  70. Lol says:

    That is not a tear on the flag. But probably another white flag

  71. xd says:

    That’s a ku-klux-klan hat! LOL

  72. weeee says:

    Hey, I have that same hat!

  73. norm says:

  74. michael says:

  83. awesome kid says:

  84. Has a brain says:

    Those are slits in the flag so wind can pass through…in the middle picture which is enlarges you can see the fields behind. KKK? Yeah Mitt Romney would support the KKK. Morons.

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
