Chudjak, sometimes also called Poljak, is a Wojak variant that was made to mock right-wing /pol/ users. His facial features include almond-shaped eyes, thick-framed glasses, and a distinct lack of chin. While these particular features are often attributed to adolescent mass-shooters and far-right extremists, 'jak fact-checkers have found evidence to suggest that an obsession with American politics, regardless of affiliation, can often cause an individual to develop this particular phenotype. As such, it is also commonly used as a template for trannyjaks, commiejaks, and other wojak edits meant to mock left-wingers. Because of Chudjak's polarizing nature and extreme versatility in being used against various political demographics, posting a Chudjak can often result in other posters retaliating with their own Chudjaks. This can lead to a thread devolving into warring factions quoting each other with Chudjak edits, a phenomenon remarkably similar to a conventional soy duel. Some /pol/ users have also chosen to self-identify as the Chudjak, making images such as Roman art parodies depicting chuds "looking like and saying that."

The word "Chud" stands for "Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller", which comes from the 1984 science fiction horror movie C.H.U.D. and was popularized as a pejorative against right-wingers by the podcast Crapo Brap House.

Origin[edit | edit source]

The origin of the Chudjak is disputed, but it is said that an earlier front-facing version of the Chudjak, originally called "le /pol/ face", originated on the German imageboard Kohlchan to make fun of raiding /pol/ users before the currently popular "Wojakified" version was created in August 30th, 2020 on the now-defunct website Bunkerchan.[2]

Status As A Soyjak[edit | edit source]

The question of whether or not Chudjak should be considered IAS or NAS had been a controversial issue during much of 2020-22, but nowadays it is pretty much unanimously agreed that he IAS. Those who considered him NAS argued that he lacks the defining soyboy characteristics of an open mouth and a stubble, while those who considered him IAS appealed to the fact that Chudjak was used like any other soyjak and therefore was one.

Official status as IAS[edit | edit source]

SoyBooru allows all Chudjak edits[3] under variant:chudjak, and Chudjak was listed as a contestant for the Variant of the Year 2022 strawpoll. Chudjak is also featured in a couple site banners, further cementing official recognition. These facts confirms that Chudjak is a soyjak and this has been rebunked by mutliple peer-reviewed studies.

In soyduels[edit | edit source]

The usage of Chudjaks in Soy Duels is generally despised, although in 2022 Chudjak vs Trannyjak edits saw an increase in popularity, and are probably the most popular type of dueling these days.[4]

Right Wing Usage[edit | edit source]

Registered Democrat[edit | edit source]

An images that claims Patrick Crusius is a registered democrat. This has been debunked.[5]

Many right-wing /pol/ users tried to reclaim the meme in their favor, a popular example of these attempts is the registered democrat image (shown here) which claims that Patrick Crusius, the person Chudjak is based on, was actually a registered democrat. This image gained a lot of popularity on /pol/ even though popular fact-checking websites like Snopes already debunked it.[5]

There has also been attempts at relating Chudjak to other popular leftists rather than Patrick Crusius such as John Oliver, Bernie Sanders, Stephen Colbert, and many more.[6] But the most popular one of these is Doreen Ford, a tranny r/antiwork janny who participated in a Fox News interview.[7]

Self Insert[edit | edit source]

Some chuds choose to identify as Chudjaks online, this usage isn't very common on /pol/ but it's more popular on (and formerly /qa/). Popular edits include Chudjak killing trannies,[8] Chudjak Roman Art parodies,[9] and Chudjak edits featuring a big white cock.[10]
