Sigh PJW is not alt right you have provided 0 evidence liking a frog meme does not = alt right.

 

 

Yes he is, and yes it does.

 

Is that enough - or do you want to continue with your stupid claims?

 

I'm over "discussion" with you.  And it's getting seriously off-topic.  Start another thread if you want.

 

 

Nope that's not where near enough.

Nope pepe the frog has been used in many things silly opinion pieces proves nothing.

 

Here is a simple google image search 

 

Here is a clinical physiologist point of view:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BoOdMx_zDU 

 

If you don't want to watch the video here is a quote:

 

"most of the people who are using this sort of symbol are using it in a deeply satirical way. Now the fact that the far right have decided that its a radical indicator of the validity of there particular view doesn't mean that that's what it is"

 

But I guess to you Jordan Peterson is alt right now to you because he disagrees with you.

Similarly, the swastika was used by many cultures as a symbol of life and principles. Silly usage of this ancient icon by the Nazi party proves nothing.

Regardless of where your convictions lie, that guy is alt-right and the frog is an adopted symbol, pretty much like the swastika was.

Trump Administration may be separating asylum seeking parents and children at the border:

AP: The lawsuit follows action the ACLU took in the case of a Congolese woman and her 7-year-old daughter, who the group said was taken from her mother "screaming and crying" and placed in a Chicago facility. While the woman was released Tuesday from a San Diego detention center, the girl remains in the facility 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away.

Seems to be happening to others apprehended at the border as well. The administration denies there is a policy to do that. Hard to know if it became harsher or not. The lawyers are pointing to reports back in December that the administration intended to start doing it because 'deterrent':

Washington Post :December 2017: The Trump administration is considering measures to halt a surge of Central American families and unaccompanied minors coming across the Mexican border, including a proposal to separate parents from their children, according to officials with knowledge of the plans.

KIM JONG UN REVEALS HE IS JUST USING TRUMP TO MEET STORMY DANIELS

 

 

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—Kim Jong Un has revealed to close associates that he has offered to meet Donald J. Trump only as a means of achieving his real goal: meeting the former adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

 

A confidant of the North Korean dictator said that Kim revealed his true intentions behind the Trump invitation at a high-level government meeting on Thursday night. “Kim said that he was a big fan of Stormy’s, and he decided that meeting with Trump would be a ‘necessary evil’ if he wanted a chance to meet her,” the confidant said.

 

According to the confidant, Kim first attempted to arrange a meeting with Daniels through his close friend, the former N.B.A. player Dennis Rodman, “but, when Dennis said that he didn’t know Stormy, Kim was, like, ‘Oh, well, I guess I’ll have to go through Trump, then.’ ”

 

Kim reportedly is prepared to use whatever leverage is necessary to force Trump to broker the meeting with the erstwhile porn performer. “If Kim doesn’t get to meet Stormy, the missile tests resume,” the confidant said.

 

When told about Kim’s real reason for offering to meet with Trump, a White House aide initially expressed shock, but then added, “Now everything makes sense.”

Im not arguing that pepe is not used by the alt right im arguing that its use is not evidence that the person who is using it is alt right.

 

The difference between the swastika is it was not widely used in western world before the Nazi party appropriated it whereas pepe was in very wide use around the internet as a meme long before the alt right appropriated it, you have to release that despite all the media hype the alt right is not a large group. 

 

Many have and will continue to use pepe despite the alt right claiming it, just like those Buddhist cultures that use the swastika for its original purpose are not Nazi.

 

Unfortunately these days the term Alt-right like Nazi is used to attempt to shut down conversation rather than debate and discuss ideas many people have been accused by left leaning publications and organizations such as "right wing watch" of being alt right when there political affiliations are not even closely related.

It seems to be an alt-right trend to completely deny any previous disgusting or conspiracy views and then repeat those same views again sometime later. Don't ask me why. It's strange stuff.

This requires a long explanation into the history of the alt right but put it this way in the beginning the alt right was seen differently to what it is now (not a white identitarian movement)

 

I have been following the alt right since late 2016 listening to debates and their podcasts. The alt-right are proud to be alt-right if you understand the movement you understand the people who are and who are not alt-right PJW is not alt-right nor are popular youtubers who have been called alt right by the media before ie Sargon Of Akkad, styxhexenhammer666, Milo Yiannopoulos etc

freitasm: Please. Stop trying to explain what clearly is racism and hate.

 

What that the alt right is a white identitarian movement? 

 

Or about pepe funnily enough Philip DeFranco just made a video on it and I agree with his point of view:

White identitarian movement is another name for racism.

This is not acceptable here.
