Irony as an external attribute; beyond the qualities of an implicit component. Irony as a subjectively-applied attribute of an object which ALREADY contains internal ironic components. Irony that falls outside of the bounds of postmodernism. Postmodernists call it post-irony and ascribe it primarily to post-postmodernism; although much of post-irony arcs farther, into hypermodernism. Includes ironic nihilism, ideal ironicism (aesthetic), and ironic identity (racial; collective conciousness). Popular in the alt-right messaging approach

A number of late 90’s postmodern academics considered second-degree existential irony to be a boundary of postmodernism rather than external to postmodernism itself; however this analysis did not take into account the unique attributes of nihilism as compared to existentialism as a whole
Ironic nihilism is an example of irony squared because nihilism itself already contains implicit irony.
