Bad, Bones, and Books: 1:47 About Act Issues Why is there a frog standing directly behind Trump? That's Pepe. He's a symbol associated with white supremacy. Wait. Really? White supremacy? That's right. Please explain Here's the short version: Pepe is a cartoon frog who began his internet life as an innocent meme enjoyed by teenagers and pop stars alike. But in recent months, Pepe's been almost entirely co-opted by the white supremacists who call themselves the "alt- right." They've decided to take back Pepe by adding swastikas and other symbols of clint-thrasher-barton: evil-bones-mccoy: darkseid: glamourweaver: dangergays: doomy: what did we do to deserve this election season THIS ISNT A TUMBLR P AGE THIS ISNT MADE UP , THE ACTUAL DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE SAID THAT?? popular internet meme… PEPE the frog… is ?? WHITE SUPREMCISIST???? in response to the fucking republican nominee using a MEME on TWITTER in the first place???2016 is one for the history books They’re right though - you don’t see it necessarily on your tumblr feed, but if you look at the most shared pepe images in recent months on the Google searchable web they’ve been alt-right white supremacist ones.  So yeah, it has absolutely been co-opted.  It’s bizarre that this has happened, but the Clinton website pointing it out is not the truly bizarre part, the fact that it happened is. well shit. that is a really fucking weird thing to do and I had no idea RIP Pepe, he was so rare and pure It’s so weird. Yeah he’s been co-opted by those jackasses but it’s also baffling how much of a piece of sensationalist, click-baiting yellow journalism this article is.It’s like if someone took all the bad parts of 20th Century history and just jammed it all into one year.Lest we forget the true pepe is a commie“Shoot, you are only going to kill a frog.”
