these morons added Pepe to the file of racist thing this week. All because Killary couldn't handle it. 

 

"Pepe the Frog is a cartoon character that has become a popular Internet meme (often referred to as the "sad frog meme" by people unfamiliar with the name of the character).  The character first appeared in 2005 in the on-line cartoon Boy's Club, created by artist Matt Furie.  In that appearance, the character also first used its catchphrase, "feels good, man."

The Pepe the Frog character did not originally have racist or anti-Semitic connotations.  Internet users appropriated the character and turned him into a meme, placing the frog in a variety of circumstances and saying many different things.  Many variations of the meme became rather esoteric, resulting in the phenomenon of so-called "rare Pepes." 

The majority of uses of Pepe the Frog have been, and continue to be, non-bigoted.  However, it was inevitable that, as the meme proliferated in on-line venues such as 4chan, 8chan, and Reddit, which have many users who delight in creating racist memes and imagery, a subset of Pepe memes would come into existence that centered on racist, anti-Semitic or other bigoted themes."

So.... What's the next symbol they claim as racist?
