Hillary declares war on Pepe the Frog

Embattled candidate calls cartoon frog "sinister"

Hillary Declares War on Pepe the Frog
Hillary Clinton has officially declared war on Pepe the Frog, a popular Internet meme.

The embattled candidate has dedicated an entire page on her campaign site about the cartoon frog she believes is ?racist.?

?That cartoon frog is more sinister than you might realize,? declared HillaryClinton.com. ?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.??

Additionally, the Hillary campaign linked Alex Jones and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos to Pepe the Frog, implying they are also ?white supremacists.?

Yiannopoulos in particular is a predominant commentator on the alt-right who?s often mislabeled as its leader.

?The press seems determined to label the alt-right this misogynist, hateful, racist, homophobic, anti-semitic movement, and yet at the same time tries to crown a gay jew who never shuts up about his black boyfriend as the leader of it ? something isn?t quite right here,? he once said.

Here?s the reality: the alt-right isn?t a clearly defined movement, and it?s certainly not controlled by white nationalists.

If anything, the alt-right is a decentralized, spontaneous reaction against political correctness, social justice warriors, uncontrolled immigration, limitless government and third-wave feminism.

But it?s also the resulting backlash against traditional ?cuckservatives? like the Bush family who?ve dominated GOP politics for the past several decades ? until now.

Coming into prominence in 2015, the alt-right grew out of the youth-dominated underground of the Internet, such as 4chan where Internet memes such as Pepe the Frog are routinely used to troll the identity politics of the ?divide and conquer? power elite.

But does that mean that skinhead racists ? commonly referred to as 1488ers on 4chan ? can?t hijack Pepe for their own anti-semite memes? Of course not, but that doesn?t mean they own Pepe just like I don?t own Mickey Mouse by drawing a cartoon of him doing hard drugs.

In response to Hillary?s attack on Pepe, reddit users pointed out her campaign logo looks like the Twin Towers getting hit by a plane on 9/11.

?In 72 hours Hillary has called 50% of Trump supporters ?deplorables,? had a f*cking seizure in public, announced she has pneumonia and attacked Pepe the Frog officially on her website,? reddit user Skippyilove pointed out. ?This can?t be real life.?

But Pepe may finally stop Hillary?s political ambitions.

?Attacking a cartoon frog makes her look seriously delusional,? another reddit user sven855 said. ?Worse still, she has openly proclaimed that she got trolled by the Internet.?

?A presidential candidate is getting trolled. Let that sink in.?

Adam Serwer: Who is Pepe the Frog and how did you come up with him?
Matt Furie:Pepe started in the early 2000s, I had just been drawing a lot of frog faces, and I came up with a frog character to be one of four characters in a comic book that I did called Boy’s Club, and it started off as a zine, I would just publish....


Serwer: How did it feel when Pepe turned into an internet meme?



How have I never heard of Pepe?

How does a green fellow with a Hispanic name come to represent white supremacy?

Yes, Hillary and some others in her camp are delusional.

Get back in your basket!

Pepe is a cartoon meme very popular in Taringa.com, an Argentine website. Mostly, he mocks.

The people of alt.right are neither industrious nor creative, and stole Pepe.

I don't think this is even a minor issue.

Right, it is no issue at all.

It is grasping at straws.

Is or is not an issue?

Is or is not mockery of Trump , or mockery of Trumpbashing?


I think it is both legal and fair either way.

But is Trump good for Pepe the Frog?

Toons do not vote. The question is therefore irrelevant.
Pepe the Frog is simply a tool to be used by either side.
He is totally unimportant.
