A video by Paula White, spiritual advisor to President Donald Trump, praying for his re-election, triggered memes and remixes. White’s footage has given a lot of new support, with everything from EDM to Eminem.
Right Wing Watch, a project that “monitors and exposes the activities of radical right-wing political organizations,” showed the video of White “conducting a passionate prayer service to secure Trump’s re-election. It was viewed 16.5 million times on Twitter at the time of writing.
In the video, White can be heard saying, “Strike, strike, strike until you have won victory, because any enemy who allies himself against you, may it be that we would strike the ground, for you will give us victory, God.
“I hear the sound of rain in abundance, I hear the sound of victory, I hear the sound of shouting and singing, I hear the sound of victory.
White repeats the “I hear the sound of rain in abundance, I hear the sound of victory” a few times and then says, “The Lord says it is done, the Lord says it is done, the Lord says it is done.
“For I hear victory, victory, victory, victory in the quarters of heaven, in the quarters of heaven I hear victory
“For at this very moment angels are being released, at this very moment angels are being sent out, [speaks in tongues]for at this very moment angels have been sent out of Africa, at this very moment Africa, at this very moment Africa, at this very moment Africa, at this very moment they are coming here, they are coming in the name of Jesus, from South America, they are coming here…”
White then spoke in tongues and repeated the line “I hear the sound of victory” over and over again.
The prayer was distributed through social media and inspired memes and remixes.
Twitter user Capitaine OSEF posted a video that put White’s prayer into an instrumental version of Eminem’s “Without Me” with the popular TikTok trend of the white cat nodding along, which was seen about two million times at the time of writing.
Well, excuse @Eminem for that. But this is the first instrumental piece I thought of. pic.twitter.com/5uce3N3GSP

White’s video shows a man walking back and forth across the stage, which caught the attention of Sarah Mackie, who published an edited video with the confused Travolta memo from Pulp Fiction.

Finally, Kevin Gannon did some remixes, including one where he added the song “Bodies” by the nu-metal icons “Drowning Pool”, a probably more pleasing listening experience than the original.
OK, well, one more picture.twitter.com/qF7l8tsAoq
