Fuck up the nazis
REMEMBER WHEN I GOT A MILLION ANON ASKS CALLING ME CRAZY FOR CALLING THIS OUT MONTHS AGO??????
A fairly succinct breakdown of how right-wing trolling eventually manages to get co-opted by actual white supremacists and far-right extremists.
Yes, it’s ridiculous that pepe the frog is seen as a symbol of white nationalism. Yes, it started off as a dumb, overdone meme years ago. It’s dumb that an ok sign can potentially be associated with these people as well.
But the sheer ridiculousness of those claims is irrelevant to the fact that it is getting thrown into white nationalist rallies, messaging, and communities.
Don’t automatically assume everyone throwing OK signs out is a racist, because that’s fucking dumb. But that is independent of it slowly gaining other meanings than what you’re used to.
